Instagram Roundup #25

by Jamie Sanford on January 30, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups! I am contemplating content other than this weekly Instagram post. Coming soon! I’m going to an accessory swap soon so I’ve been trying to wear all of the necklaces to see which ones I might part with. It will not be this one with antlers. I cannot resist jewelry with antlers. My current bedside lip balm is this Chapstick Botanical Medley. It smells delicious. We got a juicer. This was the second juice that came out, it was quite fruity and delicious. I need to start drinking the more unfortunate green juices with more kale and whatnot. This whole nail situation was not intended. It is OPI Ink, with Milani Hi-Res sponged on top, and then some OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle on top of that. I meant to only sponge the tips but it looked odd so I just went over the whole thing. I was going through an old InStyle and became more obsessed with this printed skirt from McQ. I wasn’t a very good bride even when I was in the midst of planning a wedding. However, I was really pissed that this Vera Wang for David’s Bridal dress wasn’t around when I got married. It’s beautiful. We had amazing heavy fog this morning, so I stopped in the little riverside park to take some photos on my way to the office. I wish I had taken my real camera with me, but I’m glad I stopped only to take phone pictures.

Prada Ready-to-Wear Collection, Spring 2012

I won’t be wearing this Prada skirt that I love.

As much as I read and enjoy many fashion blogs, I have trouble identifying with most things during Fashion Week. As most of the designers showing collections do not cater to plus-size women, it’s mostly a giant tease for those of us that fall into that category. (I would love to hear more about this from the plus-size fashion bloggers attending Fashion Week, because part of me just doesn’t understand the appeal.) Sure, I can be “inspired” by a look from the runway, but what if I want that exact skirt? Well, I’m SOL because the sizes are limited.

That being said, a collection that is a perfect example of this is the Prada ready-to-wear collection presented in Milan last week.  I think there are a lot of people in the fashion industry who look down on fat people, who think just like Tom Ford does, but perhaps they aren’t inviting trouble by being vocal about it. Is Miuccia Prada the same way – and also, is she against making money? Because I have a feeling that some of these pieces, sized up, would make a killing.

Here are my other picks from the Prada show that I will not be wearing anytime soon. (All photos via Style.com.)

Love this skirt. I guess I can have that bag, since the bag doesn’t care what size I wear.

Skirt + jacket.

Not so much with that bandeau top, but that skirt is gorgeous.

This skirt might be even better. Gorgeous.

Is that pleated, flowy leather? Want.

I wouldn’t wear it over a bathing suit, but I would wear this coat to death.

Not gonna lie, I’m sad now that I won’t be obtaining any of these pieces without starving myself for 6 months.  I have heard that designers have to do so much more work to make pieces in sizes that are bigger than the norm, but a pleated skirt like those heavily featured at Prada cannot be that challenging to size up. However, I’m not a designer, I don’t sew at all, so I don’t know about sizing clothing.

I’d love to hear from plus-size girls/bloggers with their thoughts on this!
