Well it has been almost two months since my last entry. I find it hard to write about things that don't reach out and grab me, when I first walk into a store. Then I walk past the window of my local City Chic store and saw the Military Pleather Jacket. I know... I have said, I am over the military look as it was done last year..... how ever, it looks like the "military look" is in this season too. I must say I like this jacket because it goes will almost anything... jeans, a lbd or a cute little skirt such as the Lace Ruffle Skirt also from City Chic. Go take a peek, it's to die for!
I'm going to jump into something else and mention the LMFF, did everyone get to see the pics from the Fashion Show? Finally something different from CC, I heart the outfits on the catwalk.... something to get excited about. I can't wait until it all hits the stores. If you would like to see what I am talking about, go to: www.citychic.com.au. How ever.... I did notice a couple models that defiantly shouldn't be what City Chic is about. One model in particular would be lucky to be a size 12 after eating a large Big Mac meal. None the less, she was stunning... just not a 14+. I would hate to think they took in a plus size garment.
I must say I am some what disappointed. CC is about celebrating women of plus size, so why the need to have women that are not plus size? I really don't see what is wrong with putting a size 24 on the catwalk, do you? I am yet to see a company that is for us plus size girls... not afraid to show those sexy, curvaceous babes out there.
I put this to you City Chic. How about doing a campaign where you only feature size 20+? After all your clothes aren't just for size 14-18. So be proud of your +20 consumers and let them strut their stuff.
