Plus Size Models in French Marie Claire!

Don’t forget to shop The Fat and Skinny Shop for sizes 8-20, L-3X!

I want to thank 12+ UK Model Management for giving me the heads up on this. Two of their models, Hayley Morley & Laura Catteral, will be in the June issue of French Marie Claire. These pictures are so gorgeous. Everyone looks so beautiful. I can’t describe it. I really hope American magazines start doing things like this. Most of the magazines that have featured plus size models have been foreign magazines. Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista has a awesome article on this.

DIY / Answers

Before I get into the post someone asked me if I design and if I knew of any plus size designers. Well I just started dabbling in design this year. My flats aren’t great, but I try to practice from time to time. You can view some of my flats here. As far as plus size designers are concerned, Marie Denee at The Curvy Fashionista has a really good, no GREAT post on the plus size industry that I think everyone should read, including straight sized people. It breaks the industry down into categories and then list the designers and stores that fit under that category. I couldn’t write a better article or explanation, so check it out here.

Soooooo I found this website called PS I Made You a while ago, and it is TRESMAZING! It seems like they have great DIYs that totally make sense to someone like me who loves crafts but usually screws them up. This necklace would make a great Christmas present for someone. I can’t wait to try it out.

From PS I Made You:

Baubles ‘N Bubbles. They breathe a lightness and lend themselves to beautiful sphere shapes, which are perfect in the most imperfect way. Their translucent white and clear crystal hues are deliciously delicate. Mmmmmm how I love, thee!

An easy and unexpected way to create your own version of this look is with tape! I love the selection at Staples! I found mini-packing tapes which I strung on pretty black chiffon ribbon with Hex nuts in between. Knot a few on the ends for a more stylized-finished look, and you’re ready to sport your translucent-esque treasure!

Experiment with different size tapes and colored ribbons!

Have fun!
