My post on diversity in design from a couple of weeks back spawned a discussion, not just about racial/ethnic diversity represented in the fashion/design/blogger world, but also about the lack of representation of curvier ladies in said media. Since then (and even prior to that post) numerous readers have sent me emails and left comments requesting/suggesting that I add What I Wore posts as a regular feature on the blog.
With that in mind, today I start a new weekly column called Zany & Zaftig*. As a crazy dresser, a healthy size 14, and A multi-culti chica who doesn’t fit nicely into any box, I hope to add a little flavor and a little bit of zaftig wonder to the blogosphere.
This Week I’m Zany & Zaftig in:
1.o Funnyface by Nars lipstick
2.o Mixed Chicks Leave-in-conditioner (on my hair). I seriously recommend it–keeps locks on lockdown.
3.o A vintage coat I scored at Shareen Vintage. Shareen told me that she had bought this coat originally for Andre Leon Talley. I’m still not sure if she was kidding. She asserted that he and I are probably the only two people in the world who would wear this jacket and so she cut me quite a deal. Stoked.
4.o My clog boots. They come out in October and stay out until June. I’ve had this pair for four years and they still rock my world. They give me the right amount of height, they are SUPER comfy and they go with EVERYTHING. If you still need a winter boot, try No. 6.
Alrightly friends–have an amazing weekend.
