Mad Max Meets Dark Glam: An Ode to Fashion Week--Plus Size Editorial Outfit of the Day

Me, I love fashion. I love the fantasy, the self expression and the frivolity of it all. But what I don't like is the lack of diversity be it age, size, or race to walk down the runways of fashion week. Yes, the media finds it daring when a designer will add an older model, a plus size one (who is actually average size in the real world) or three ethnic girls in a show at once...oh the applause.

But for me, I want to see it all and more often than not. So, I decided to style myself in honor of fashion week and those who are left out of the mainstream. We deserve the fantasy, the fun and the frivolity of it all no matter where we are at in life. Remember age and size is just a does not define who we are! So get out there and rock it!

I hope you enjoy!

Happy Fashions,

Fun Fact: There was a family of quail running around behind me while these photos were being taken.
I am loving the dark glam look! My lipstick is Revlon's Black Cherry. It was created by makeup artist Gucci Westman for London Fashion Week... a few years ago I believe.

Fun Fact: It was hot as Hades in the desert! I'm talking triple digits and I am wearing a fur vest! I recommend NOT wearing a fur vest during a heat wave.
(Above) Here are some of the close ups of my outfit. I think it's a dark glam twist on Mad Max...sadly, Tina Turner was not around during this photo shoot! :( But I tried to channel her to the best of my abilities! lol.

(Below) I wanted to show you a close up of my Dolce Vita for Target wedges. These can be worn in the winter with tights or cute socks. Miuccia Prada is a big fan of open toe shoes and there must be something to it!
Also I think the buckle on my jeggings from Lane Bryant adds a cute detail! And the bright nails against the darkness of the outfit adds a bit of irreverence to an otherwise serious look. ________________________________________________________________________________________ Fashion Stockist
