Alexander McQueen 1969 - 2010


World renowned British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died at the age of 40. The cause of death is still unconfirmed amidst rumours that he committed suicide. This is shocking and incredibly sad news. The world has lost a fashion icon.


May his soul rest in peace.
    

Style Post-its







    

Curvaceous Beauty


This is my first real fashion post in ages! I've never really done a full post on fashion that caters to plus sized ladies or as TV stylist Gok Wan would say, Curvaceous Beauties!!

I've noticed more shops provide bigger sizes especially since the revolt against size zero models on the runway in 2006 but i still think that there aren't many shopping options for the fashionable plus-sized gal. Some of the clothes are actually unflattering and not very feminine and its like some idiot just decided that fuller-figured women shouldn't be able to participate in fashion trends. As someone who has issues buying clothes because i'm quite tall, i feel i should put in my two cents.

I'm not an expert but i've done some research......

Famous Beauties With Curves




Jackets
  • A Low cut, single breasted jacket works best if you have a big bust
  • A jacket that fastens underneath the bust is preferably because one that buttons over the bust might appear too tight and could lead to the peek-a-boo effect (we dont't want that, lol!)
  • Go for styles that are slightly longer than the hip to elongate the body. Unless it's a cropped jacket, anything that hits right on the hip tends to draw attention if you are wider at the hips.

  • A narrower lapel makes you appear slimmer up top.


Tops


  • Stick with tops that have deep V-necks, sweetheart and scoop necklines (layer tops underneath very low necklines)
  • Wrap tops are good
  • Avoid high necks like the plague!
  • General Tip! If you are higher than a C-Cup try not to wear heavily padded bras especially with Shirts. A lady at T.M lewin told me this when i kept complaining about my buttons. I now wear non-padded bras with my shirts and I even went a shirt size smaller....lifesaver!)

Jeans/Trousers

  • Go for straight cut or boot cut styles
  • Dark, clean washes
  • Avoid tapered skinny jeans or anything too small or tight that creates a "sausage" effect
  • *If you must wear skinny jeans, make sure you wear a long-lined top that covers the widest part of your thighs. Also, remember to go for a darker wash.

  • Avoid cropped or boyfriend styles which will tend to make you look short and wide
    

What About Your Friends?

You know that TLC song that forces you to ask yourself the question...

'What about your friends, Will they stand their ground, Will they let you down again?

What about your friends are they gonna be low down, Will they ever be around or will they turn their backs on you?'


People are not always reliable and you can never predict what they will do but i can say with some certainty that my friends and family have my back and vice versa.

Dear God, Thank you for my family and friends :-)
