Thank you for this informative article link, much appreciated. It would be great if this look was available to plus sizes everywhere.
What I find refreshing in the article is that this trend is seen in women in their 20s and 30s. It reaffirms the notion that every plus-size beauty wants a piece of the pie; and why not? Just because a woman has passed her teen and early adult years, this should not leave her in the dust when it comes to fashion and fabulousness. Not all of us want to be stuck in the career/business casual corner of the department store because that's the only choice left for those of us in our 30s. When women spend long days in the hyper-competitive workaday world, it turns us into zombies who all end up looking like men. There is a hunger for femininity that does not wane in years but burns bright. It is as essential to the soul as chocolate, brie cheese and good red wine.
But the princess boom is seen as a more polished and sophisticated look that's popular among working women in their 20s and 30s, perhaps as a bit of escapism from workaday stress and economic uncertainty.
I look forward to this trend making its presence felt here, in some way, shape or form.
