This Rocks

I'm a size 10/12 and I have narrow hips, which means I can fit into most designer clothes. However, up until two years ago, I was a good size 16. It was always really depressing to find that the clothing I loved wasn't available.

Now, a new store in Manhattan has come up with a brilliant concept. True Boutique carries amazing designers -- including Dallin Chase and Cloak and Dagger -- but in sizes 00-16, so more girls can shop.

I really hope this idea takes off. Good luck to Katie, the owner!

I've been trying to get my naturally thin friends to wear jumpsuits for the last three summers. I hate to say it, but I feel this trend screams, "the tinier you are, the better." (I'm usually all for every size wearing every trend -- like skinny jeans -- if you know how to style, you can make it work).

HOWEVER, I'm starting to really, really want a little chambray romper from Urban. I haven't tried it on yet for fear of feeling depressed, but I think I'm going to go for it this weekend. If it fits my long torso/high waist body, you'll be seeing me in a onesie come 4th of July.
Ooh, that's going to be a pain when I have to use the WC.
