Straight Size to Plus Size – Textured Jacket

I’m obsessed with this outfit from Fashion Jackson!  I came across it on Instagram the other day and fell in love.  It’s a perfect mix of classic tweed with glamorous Louboutin d’Orsay pumps.  Of course, Amy Jackson is in head-to-toe swoon-worthy designer duds, like these Celine sunglasses and a Gucci bag.  But I offer some less expensive options below in case a splurge isn’t in the budget.

As I’ve said, these “Straight Size to Plus Size” posts are some of my most popular, but I also get complaints that the “models” in the images aren’t plus sized.  So I just wanted to give a little background of why I do these types of posts: We are all inundated everyday by images of thin celebrities, models, and bloggers sporting the “latest looks,” i.e. clothing that doesn’t come in our size.  So I try to take these “unattainable” images and prove that, in fact, with some [often too much] effort, plus size women can put these hot looks together.  They are attainable!  And I try to take the effort, i.e. searching every where for the pieces, out of the equation.  So as always, my main goal is to inspire and empower.

One thought on “Straight Size to Plus Size – Textured Jacket

  1. Alexa, we who are larger sizes look at the models wearing the clothes you post, and although I love your taste, if manufacturers posted photos of those clothes on plus-size models, they’d never sell a thing. What they’re selling us is hope…hope that we’ll look like that, too. And we don’t. Short tops, short shorts, tank tops….they wouldn’t sell a single one. They know exactly what they’re doing.

    As far as clothes in plus sizes there are very few manufacturers who have any sort of clue at all about what our needs are. I always roll my eyes at shirts with pockets on our boobs. Really? And besides drawing attention to how large they are, what on earth do they expect me to put into that pocket? Tissues?? Another personal peeve is tops, t-shirts that don’t cover our tummies! Those hideous sacks that gals display in short t-shirts and jackets? Not necessary…I sometimes wonder if they own mirrors.

    I’ve been a size 22, and am now an 18 because of hard work and determination, and can now shop in the “normal” clothing section. No more pleats for me!

    So for those women who wonder why you don’t post more plus-size models, it’s because manufacturers know that they don’t do their clothes any justice. They can make them in plus sizes, but they sure don’t want plus-size models wearing them. They’re selling a dream, a fantasy. Sad, but true.

    Enjoy your blog, I’m a subscriber, just going off on a little rant since you mentioned the questions you received wrt larger models.

    Take care, Linda
