Issa No For Me Dawg.....

"Highlighting Trendy Plus Size Fashion As Worn By Chicago Blogger, Jacqueline Paytes"

That's the first thing you see when you open my blog, so clearly, I like to embrace the current trends. However, there are certain trends that try as I might, I just can't get into. I thought it would be fun to give you 5 trends that I am going to just let pass me by. Now before some folks get their panties in a bunch, this is in no way shape or form meant to be a dig at anyone who likes these trends, I have seen Divas killing these looks, they are just non starters for your girl! But, wear whatever the hell you want, nobody dubbed me the Fashion Police. This is meant to be lighthearted fun, so get out your feelings and check it out!

Trend #1. Swing Dressess

Okay, before you click off....lemme 'splain! Conceptually, I love this trend, i's easy, versatile and Fluffy Friendly, however it just doesn't work on me. I am kinda short, and busty, so this type of dress always looks very "tent like" on me. Trust me, I have tried to layer the look, add awesome accessories and shoes, but I always feel matronly when I attempt to rock a swing dress, so I have simply had to accept that this is just a trend that was not meant for me to rock.

Trend # 2. Ruffle Hem Pants

Another trend I really want to like, but just can't. I have seen this look in spandex, as well as denim and trouser style, and I have seen some of my fellow curvy divas own it, but I just feel silly when I put them on. They remind me of clown pants, and I can't take MYSELF seriously when I have them on! They're definitely fun though, and I think they'll be around for a while.
