SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!!!

After a long, brutal winter, one of my favorite fashion seasons has arrived. YEAH!!  Here in my hometown of Tampa, Florida, the summer brings sweltering heat, 20 minute thunderstorms and bold, bright summer trends.  Today was a gorgeous day filled with marshmallow shaped clouds floating across our cerulean blue skies, yet the heat index reached 101 F! Wow! Most would definitely say, “There is NO WAY one could be fashionable without being frustrated in such heat”. Well I am here to tell and show you that it is possible.

Check out the new summer arrivals now available at my retail location.  Our model is wearing a light weight canary yellow sleeveless hi lo shirt with a crotchet inset, styled with our canary yellow tote bag and houndstooth printed heels.  If you’re not in the Tampa Bay Area you can still be elegantly stylish with more of our exclusive items by purchasing from my online store at www.skyunikues.com.   Be sure to follow me for more summer styles to come!!

HAPPY SHOPPING!

Plus Size Women In High Fashion

DO PLUS SIZE WOMEN HAVE A PLACE IN THE HIGH FASHION INDUSTRY?

The average runway model is 5″9 – 5″11, 108-130lbs with a waist no larger than 25″ and 35 1/2 hips. Plus Size Model magazine revealed that some of today’s plus size models are the same size as former Super Models Christie Brinkley and Cindy Crawford. In today’s fashion industry, a plus size model is a size 6 or larger BUT the average American woman is a size 14. So, why are there so many size zero’s on the the runway?

Does this mean that there will be more of a demand for models who look like the “average” woman OR will there be more of a demand for the average woman to look like a model?! Although each modeling agency has different size and height requirements, will there ever come a time where we will see a size 10 grace the runway of a couture fashion show?

We all know that women want to be sexy and chic no matter what size they are. As a self-made fashionista, I believe that  sexy comes in ALL sizes!! Post your comments on this hot topic and tell me what your thoughts are?
