The New Shape Saver

29 Jun

Apparently designers have figured out that we don’t all look like the gorgeous waifs strutting down the runways.  In fact, many designers seem to have united in a new shape saving technique…the “slimming side panel”.  Leather, florals, bold colors, graphic prints, and sequins can be tricky for any figure.  I love how these designers have made them more wearable and flattering for those of us not in the Kate Moss gene pool.  From all of us, I would like to say a big “thank you”!  Now – if only the maternity apparel designers would get on board…

Too thin? Too rich? Is it possible?

19 Sep

I am not sure about the rich part – but after looking at the spring collection from Tribune Standard, I know it is possible to be too thin.  Do you agree?

This might be a cute swimsuit, but I can’t get bast the model’s protruding rib cage.  Aren’t you hungry, honey?

The models at Betsey Johnson are typically a little more filled out than most of the other shows.  By that I mean, they have at least eaten this week.  I am wondering if the look below is Betsey’s way of mocking the sickly thin look. Perhaps since you can’t see the rib cages on the models she uses in her shows, she decided to silk screen some on.  I think it is sort of hilarious.
