Balance: The Key To A Complete Wardrobe

blog3Hello darlings,

I can’t believe the boutique is opening in a few short weeks! Part of me is tempted to write about fall trends, since that’s what a fashion blogger should do, no? But I think you can find for yourself in Vogue. And why mess with perfection?

(Well, there is one way I’d mess with Vogue, and that’s by adding some real woman as models instead of those twigs. But I’ll bite my tongue. Because Curve Couture is about embracing beauty, and the last thing I’m about to do is riff on our skinny sisters. I just wish there were more diversity and honesty in fashion mag photo spreads, that’s all. But then, wait a minute, what am I saying? Since when was Vogue about honesty? It’s about selling a myth, a dream, a decadent, airbrushed, you'll-never-be-this-pretty-but-you-can-spend-lots-of-money-and-die-trying lie. And given that only 1 percent of American women are a size 0 (that percentage is chosen for rhetorical flourish, not a fact; frankly I have no idea, but I bet it's tiny), I guess most women are “plus size” for Vogue’s standards!)

By the way, check this out if you want a refresher on how off base the fashion industry is when it comes to sizes: http://www.britannica.com/blogs/2009/02/the-size-zero-debate-alive-and-well/.

So what to blog about instead?

Balance!

Every wardrobe needs a balance of reliable neutrals and playful standout colors. One of my priorities while choosing outfits and dresses at Curve Couture was finding pieces that will complement a complete wardrobe, or help women building new looks...
