On Wednesday I was able to participate in an informal online chat on the Lands’ End Facebook page. Their special guest was brand spokes-model Brittany Gibbons who was there to answer fashion questions (along with the aide of CeeCee). It was a busy two-hour chat with over 200 comments.
If you are not familiar with Brittany, she is the popular plus size blogger/editor/founder of Curvy Girl Guide and Brittany Herself. Brittany is a 16 or 18 depending on cut or style of clothing so she knows about the struggles of finding and fitting clothes. She has co-produced a number of videos with Lands’ End to help plus size women have more fun with dressing; like this one that helps us pair colors and patterns:
One of my favorite things that Brittany said during the chat had to do with the stigma of being plus size:
“For the longest time Plus Size felt like a dirty word, but then I realized if I just got passed that stigma and stopped stressing over my SIZE, I could focus on dressing my shape and flattering my body. It felt amazing, and if that means I’m Plus Size, no problem, at least my jeans finally fit:)”
Her excitement is contagious as she went on to gush about the Lands’ End brand and their new offerings:
“I actually love the Lands’ End plus line because it’s fashion forward, FINALLY. Blazers, belts, fitted jeans, wide calf tall boots. We have OPTIONS now, and I’m crazy excited about it!”
Brittany highlighted a few of her favorite pieces from Lands’ End — I totally want the triple round belt in all three colors!:
