If you haven't heard, one of the fashion blogging world's superstars, Cupcakes and Cashmere, has launched a clothing line. It's available at one of my fav shopping destinations, Shopbop. Although I love the girly-casual aesthetic of the line and the price points (in the range of $100), I am less than thrilled with the size choices. I am between an 8 and a 12 (depending on the brand and style) and I don't think I could get into anything other than perhaps a cotton top or jacket. I feel like alienating a large portion of your fan base was a mistake, but at the same time, I understand this was a first try at something new. Instead of inserting a tirade here, I am going to offer a suggestion and be hopeful. I am hope the Ms. Cupcakes will incorporate ladies of a wider variety of body types and shapes into her next collection. Many of the silhouettes in this collection would look fab on lots of different shapes and sizes! I have provided a few different options to recreate two of the looks below with other options.
