Its Fashion Flash Monday!

This week, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash.  Recently she uploaded an inspiring post  that focused on Sarah Robles, the awesome Olympic weightlifter.  Like  many  full figure women Sarah had trouble finding flattering, wearable clothes.  Two plus size designers, Jill Alexander and  Ming Wang stepped up to outfit Sarah for  London and the Olympic.

Red is apparently the hot color this year.  Be sure  to checkout the plus size options in this vibrant color

This week the host of Fashion Flash is Jodell of Black Cat Plus.  At this time of the year Jodell looks at  plus size fashions on the red carpet.  Recently she  blogged about Melissa McCarthy who  was  nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Bridesmaids.   MarCarthy bemoaned the lack of fashion-forward clothing for plus size women noting that “they are either for a 98 year old woman or a 14 year old hooker.”  She taken to working with designers to  create red carpet worthy  clothing such as the navy cowl neck dress by Badgley Mischka she wore at the Golden Globes.

Introducing The Fashion Flash

When I started my anti-aging journey, I focused on lines and wrinkles.  As I explored the causes and solutions of beauty issues, I realized that fashion and fitness are just as important to the total appearance.  I began  looking at other blogs for info that delivered great results.  To share these tools and tips, I am starting a new Monday feature I call “The Fashion Flash”

Each week I will be sharing a link to some of my favorite lifestyle bloggers who are experts on such topics as:
