Chrissette Michele not only has an amazing voice, she also has amazing style. Since she stepped on the seen I have been watching her every style move. Her voluptuous curvacious body is hypnotizing and her swagger is enviable. Chrissette moves to her own fashion beat in a world that says you can’t be fashionable if you’re above a size 10. I think Chrissette is a great fashion role model for curvy women.
Last night I was doing some web surfing and I came across some really chic and stylish pieces from Etsy.com. I love the designers on Etsy because they really offer some great unique pieces that are trendy and stylish. I checked out some pieces from Jibri and as usual the clothes are always on fire. Here are a couple of my pics. Hope you like. Jibri makes clothes from sizes 14-24. Each of these pieces range from $70-$200.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I need a little style inspiration when I feel like I need new work clothes. Whenever I get like that, I re-read my fashion magazines and watch reruns of What Not to Wear. Today I decided to take a look back at Elena Miro’s Fall 2009 collection. I have to say, I am feeling inspired again. I love the models shapely bodies. I may do a little Tae Bo too. A workout always makes me feel good.
I have been hearing through the blog vine that Chaka Khan will be teaming up with the UK plus size fashion store Evans for their Christmas collection. Can this be true? Well, I have found pictures to prove it to you. I first read this story while reading a really cute bog called Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes Too. So I went to Evans.co.uk and behold it’s true. They’re even running a Chaka Khan contest. It looks like the buzz about this started at the beginning of October (I know, I Know, I’m late). I just wanted to give you all a heads up.
Check out Chaka modeling a couple of pieces
Can’t wait to see the entire campaign.
What do you guys think about this.
Well, it looks like Glamour is doing double covers for their December issue. Michelle Obama is on the cover and now Rihanna has her own cover on Glamour’s Women of the Year issue. Inside she talks about the Chris Brown issue and she even sends a message to young women.
Rihanna on the Chris Brown situation: “I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day.”
Rihanna encouraging young women: “My story was broadcast all over the world for people to see, and they have followed every step of my recovery. The positive thing that has come out of my situation is that people can learn from that. I want to give as much insight as I can to young women, because I feel like I represent a voice that really isn’t heard. Now I can help speak for those women.”
Rihanna on her growth over the year: “I am stronger, wiser and more aware. You don’t realize how much your decisions affect people you don’t even know, like fans.”

Serena Williams was looking muy caliente in this blue sweater dress and black suede knee high boots. I have to say that the new hair do was not working for me. I think the bangs are too long for her strong facial features.
Other than that her curves looked great in this dress.
Do you like Serena’s new look?
This weekend I had a little extra time to relax and indulge in some me time. Every now and again I enjoy window shopping. I will just browse through stores and look at the new arrivals and cruise through the sales rack. Being the Brooklynite that I am, I cruised 86th street in Bayridge and stopped in Century 21, where I found two pairs of cute booties and a pair of satin pumps on sale.
i LOVE YOUR STYLISH CURVES BLOG – I was messing around on the internet today on cnn.com – and I saw an interview about the fashion industry – what I dont understand and maybe you can shed some light on this – we are the most obese country in the world yet our magazines have super-super skinny girls on the cover – that …woman said size 6 is considered plus size in modeling – the average woman in US is a size 6…WTF?

Hey TJ. You brought up a great point. That is why I started blogging about curvy women. My standpoint is that all shapes and sizes should be included in fashion as well as fashion media. One of the ways that I think change can come about is if we stop supporting those media outlets who don’t support women who are size 10 and above. These people and… Read More their companies will always have skinny girls on their covers or modeling their clothes because people are still buying them and supporting them. If their pockets are getting fat by selling unattainable images, why would they stop? Also, what I don’t think alot of people know is that there is not enough support from curvy women. This is the reason why stores like Banana Republic and Ann Taylor stopped carrying size 16’s in their stores. They were not selling. So, if we are not being supportive when there are products available, why should anyone else?
