Saying you have to be the size of a runway model to have fun with fashion is just like saying you have to have a huge bank account to look stylish. Obviously, we do not believe either is the case. In this episode, we invited Ashley Falcon, author of Marie Claire's "Big Girl in a Skinny World" column, to our studio to debunk the rules of plus-size dressing. See the outfits she put together for Thread viewer LaTia to show how curvy girls can indeed work the hottest looks of the season.
Ashley's monthly mission is to empower women by showing them how to embrace their curves and participate in trends they thought they were excluded from. Plus-sized girls do not have to shop at maternity stores— many do believe that, according to Ashley — and wear head-to-toe black at all times. We should note that our gorgeous model for this episode was LaTia, a loyal Thread viewer who did a fantastic job working each look.
