Hello my chicklettes! I’m back from a crazy whirlwind trip to New York City where we recently performed our Hot Flash Mob in honor of Menopause Awareness Month. While there I also stopped off at Plus Night Out, a size-friendly version of Fashion Night Out. I’m here on the red carpet with Aida Romaine, a spokesperson for healthy eating that is associated with Divabetic–a diabetes outreach group for women. I ended up wearing my blue shirt to the event because the US Airways lost my luggage and that oh so fashionable number is all I had to wear. But despite my difficulties, I have to admit the event was super fun, and there were a lot of amazing designers and gorgeous models rocking the runway.
All in all it felt like progress. It was exciting to have an event for people of ALL sizes to enjoy fun and fashion together. But I look forward to a day where we don’t have to have separate fashion events. I look towards a day where there isn’t petite fashions and plus-sized fashions and straight-sized fashions but just fashions. And I can’t wait for the day when every runway rocks models of all shapes and sizes. Nevertheless, I’m glad I got to rock the red carpet with the lettuce lady. Maybe next time my suitcase will arrive and I’ll manage some slightly fancier dressing.
