As a plus size gal, I should write more about plus size issues. Oops.
I do have something to write about though! HSN, the Home Shopping Network, has a new line of clothing designed by Queen Latifah. I was kind of looking forward to this, figuring it would be very cute, very flattering for a ps woman, and also reasonably priced. I was wrong on all accounts.
First, it’s very very boring. These are plain items that can be bought anywhere, nothing inspiring or very cute even, except maybe one or two pieces.
Second, it’s so expensive! A tank for $50? Nutty.
Third, and this is my biggest issue with the clothing line, why is a very skinny model showing the clothes? I realize the sizes range from XS to 3X, but I would expect this line to be modeled by someone at least bigger than the size small. Am I wrong in thinking this? I suppose Queen has every right to decide who can model the clothes, but it’s so disappointing.
Even the handbags are boring.
So, I won’t be ordering from this line. I doubt I’ll even bother checking it out again. Boring, ugly, expensive, and not flattering to PS women at all.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have had higher expectations of a line created by a plus size woman, but I did. And I realize this is no big deal, there are bigger things going on in the world, but this is what I choose to write about.
Anyway, check it out if you want to, I’m sure the items will sell and it will be a big hit, just not with this plus size gal.
