On the Plus Side: Sarah Conley's Fashion Week Documentary

Fashion Week in New York is just around the corner and I'm very excited to see the upcoming Spring 2009 runway shows. I won't be there in New York, but there will be plenty of blogger friends there keeping us updated!

One such friend is Sarah Conley of StyleItOnline.com who is also part of the Coutorture team. Sarah will be doing something different this fashion week, though...

In a fashion world full of skinny models - where the idea that skinny is "in", Sarah will be sharing her Fashion Week experience as part of a web-based mini documentary. But this won't be your ordinary fashion week coverage. You see, Sarah is a "Plus Size" woman who stands at 6 feet 2 inches. Most women would wallow in self-pity and let that stop them from doing the things they want to do in life. However, Sarah is as bubbly as she can be and she'll be sharing her perspective of what it's like to navigate through this skinny world.

I think it's awesome (oh, I'm showing my age by using that word!) that Sarah is doing this. Her project certainly ties in with the philosophy of this blog - that beauty is indeed within. We spend far too much time judging others when we should be working on making ourselves better people. There is so much more to people than what we see on the outside.

Stay tuned next week because I'll be sharing more about Sarah and her journey at Fashion Week! Read more about Sarah's project, On the Plus Side.
