Style is Not A Size Reviews
This book started out with an amazing introduction heralding THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA in plus size fashion and I was excited that it was going to be a classic along the lines of BREAKING ALL THE RULES by Nancy Roberts, but for some reason I could not get through this thing. I can appreciate that Hara Estroff Marano wrote this book for fat women who wanted to look just as stylish as everyone else, but the writing was kind of ponderous and dull and I kept nodding off. Since this book was published in 1991, it is hilariously obsessed with adding gigantic shoulder pads to EVERYTHING--even sweatsuits. No photographs are used, but the illustrations of fat women working that 1991 style are really cool and would make awesome clip art for a zine on 90s fashions or fat politics. The photo on the cover of this book is a plus size model in this fantastical totally United Colors of Benetton looking primary colors ensemble with a color block sweater with gigantor shoulder pads and matching gloves. I would wear it today, but I would snip out the shoulder pads first.
