We all know that women’s sports never get the accolades and attention they deserve, but last night’s soccer win was the most brilliant star in the sports sky. What a night, what a game, what an opportunity for every little girl to see her own potential! It was an extraordinary game with incredible athletes, women who excel individually and as a team.
I was at an event last week and as it often does with well-endowed (aka large breasted) women, the conversation went to bras. Having spent more than a few decades trying to please the ‘girls’, I can’t help but be excited when I can actually wear a strapless bra all day without it digging in or falling down…a pure architectural feat!
I went to see Inside Out over the weekend, the new Disney and Pixar movie that is being applauded by so many as extraordinary. And there were moments where my eyes welled up and I got sad at the loss of innocence and the pain of being a child. The challenge for me, however, was getting passed what I perceived as stereotypes.
So maybe Kenneth Cole has it right…we should just reduce the men's pay to what women make and see if things change. Until we do get as much money as men, we deserve getting things on sale and know the value of shopping smart.
Last week was the most empowering week of my life! It was FFFW (Full Figured Fashion Week), including informative forums, great individual exhibits, and an extraordinary fashion show on saturday night. There was also CurvyCon, so much fun because it was open to bloggers and the public so the feedback was unbelievable.
You know that expression about how good things are worth the wait? Well, it really is true if we're talking about the new Cherie Collection on fullbeauty.com. The perfect transitional all-season fashion, her fabulous pieces hit every trend for summer and take you right into fall with layering capabilities.
You know when you have just a great day? Well, this is going to be a great week! It is Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFW) and there are extraordinary events all week long. An amazing launch party, a forum and panels on the industry, fashion shows...it has everything.
Yesterday was the first day to hit 90 degrees and I got a taste of what the next few months will feel like. Sure, 90 and sunny is great if you’re (a) in air conditioning or (b) in a pool, but in real life, it’s not so much fun. That’s why I love lace…it’s like a little portable air conditioner for the body that allows air to get through your clothes.
Other than blogging, my passion is doing fullbeauty magazine and our second issue just went up online at fullbeauty.com. It is 88 pages of gorgeous clothes and relevant information, but your opinion is more important than mine. So a favor…will you look at it and let me know what you think?
So, for those who think the millennials have taken over the world, think again...the boomers are still booming! And all you need to warrant a cover is be uncharacteristically gorgeous for your age, be clearly interesting in redefining gender or, like U2, just continue to be great at what you do. I think I may have to opt for the third choice. Fortunately, there are fashion companies who recognize this reality and offer great clothes for all ages. I'm lucky enough to blog and shop at one of the best... fullbeauty.com.
