I know, I know – WHO AM I? Talking about fashion and doing it in a Twitter party? Are you even at the right blog?
I’m in a particularly CHALLENGING fashion phase right now, as plus-size maternity clothes are crazy hard to come by (and then, most of the time, crazy expensive to buy). But even in a normal, not-prego phase of life, shopping is hard and finding cute clothes that look good on my decidely NOT model-like body can be difficult.
So when The Motherhood asked if I’d participate in a Twitter chat about fashion for curvy gals – and tell you about it – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Will you join me tomorrow afternoon to talk fashion?
“Don’t wear white after Labor Day.”
“Stay away from horizontal stripes.”
“Don’t mix black and navy.”
Do these sound familiar? Chances are you’ve been told at least one of these “fashion rules” before. But when it comes to fashion, rules were made to be broken! And especially for the majority of women in this country who don’t fit a size-zero mold!
(AHEM. Like me.)
Curvation believes that curvy isn’t a size or a shape, but an attitude! The Motherhood is excited to team up with Curvation for a Twitter party where women can share ideas about how they can dress and feel their very best, and I’ll be joining them tomorrow. Join the conversation as we rewrite our own beauty and fashion rules!
Prizes: Five prizes will be awarded to randomly selected participants who answer trivia questions correctly. Each prize includes a Walmart gift card and Curvation product.
(Prize eligibility: Entrants must be residents of the U.S. and over the age of 18.)
Hosts: @theMotherhood, @CooperMunroe, @EmilyMcKhann, @TheMotherhood25
