For the runway I ended up going with two looks:
a Jackie O yachting homage with pearls, white gloves, a vintage seal skin hat with veil and red pumps (pics forthcoming on Facebook) (we styled Miss La Chochi with a red leopard print scarf to keep the look modern - though pictured here with pearls).
- Describe your fashion style. I have a playful, gawdy, superlatively feminine style. I love glitter, pencil skirts, cheetah print, pink on pink on pink, vintage hats, and feathers. I really love how my big body acts as an expansive canvas for big, colorful pieces (like huge statement necklaces: one of my absolute fashion favs). I like re-imagining and pushing up against traditional femininity - and making room for plus size fashion and fat visibility - with my outfits.
- What does beauty mean to you? Beauty is sometimes an oppressive force that I fight and critique. Sometimes it's a word that I don't feel belongs to me. But in the context of love, beauty is a radical way of being and seeing.
