This week, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash. Recently she uploaded an inspiring post that focused on Sarah Robles, the awesome Olympic weightlifter. Like many full figure women Sarah had trouble finding flattering, wearable clothes. Two plus size designers, Jill Alexander and Ming Wang stepped up to outfit Sarah for London and the Olympic.
Red is apparently the hot color this year. Be sure to checkout the plus size options in this vibrant color
Black Cat Plus looks at more more than just plus size fashion. I was moved by her analysis of a controversial Nike that featured an over weight boy struggling to exercise. Was it motivational or exploitive? I’d love to hear what you think.
I’m so excited about the second Beauty Bash (created by our Geri Brin of Fab Over 50) on Sept 29 at the Metropolitan Pavillion in NYC. If you went last year you know how amazing it was. This year promises to be even better. In addition to a day of skin care experts, cossmetic surgeons, fashion gurus, fashion and accessory pop-up shops, fashion shows, and mini-massage, you will go home with a ginormous goodie bag packed with must-have products.
But wait there is more. Beauty Bash will be followed by FOF Week a celebration of incredible beauty and fashion activities in both New York and New Jersey. From September 30 to Oct 6, you’re invited to a wide range of events and options including a cocktail party and charity shopping at J.Mclaughlin, a free beverage at Trump Grill and 20% off Clarins Kin Spa, Bliss and Foxcraft Collections. And save some time for free consultations with master hait stylist Yann Varin, Manhattan Dental Spa and lifestyle expert Betsy Karp.
