Fat Pride burning skinny girls hides? Too Fucking Bad.



Above: PlusModel Magazine's positive body message and Italian Vogue proving that women of all shapes and sizes are in Vogue.


Today when I googled chubbygirlintheworld.com I came across an interesting link towards the bottom of the results page. It was a blog post from a blog I won't mention but the title was "Fat Pride burns my hide." It was an all out rant against the plus size fashion industry, a commentary of Plus Model Magazine's spread featuring straight and plus size models and how she was "disgusted" by it.

The blogger goes on to say that plus size people should not be represented in more media because being plus size isn't "aspirational", that if big were beautiful we would see more plus size models (an upward trend in the fashion industry btw) she also goes so far as to call one model "disgusting" because she has what I perceive to be a normal amount of fat on her body. I just don't get it, why are you so mad skinny girl?

I honestly was heated after reading this not because I am upset about her immature comments about a plus size model believe me we've heard it all. No use in trying to change your mind but I just don't get it what does having plus size women in campaign do to hurt the skinny agenda? How on earth does this hurt you? PlusModel magazine has been an inspiration to all those women who are not a size 0 to get with new trends, inspire confidence and boost morale so that all women can concentrate on feeling good about themselves instead of trying to tear others down. I don't want a skinny versus Plus war, I just want people to be happy in their own skin. There is one thing she's right about though, if I could push a button and be smaller the way the blogger and everyone else in the world wishes I was then I would do it instantaneously.

Surprised? Why would anyone be, my size makes me a social pariah in so many ways, it affects my health and the way I percieve myself, it makes me think I can't do certain things so yes if I could instantly change it I would like so many others. Why because people like this blogger make it impossible to feel good about myself, I can say as many mantras as I want, have confidence until the cows come home but in the back of my head that damn skinny bitch is watching every bite I take and she won't leave me the fuck alone and she makes me do stupid shit like not eating, taking laxatives, over exercising and I know she does it to you too. But I've realized something:
We don't have to let her.

Not everyone is like that blogger most people out in the world will root for you when you want to make a life change, lose weight, get a degree or start a new career. Most people will do everything they can to help you because people are good, people have been there, they know what it's like to have a binge weekend, they know what it's like to not like their body , they've experienced failure and the truth is most people think you're gorgeous and frankly you don't have time for any bitches who think otherwise.

Winter is coming...

So my fiance and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones. We love Danny, hate Jofferey and yes I read the f@uking books! So winter is here, I've been snowed in for three days here in Wilsonville,OR with one of the largest snow storms to hit the area since 1996. So in order to keep from getting cabin fever I've decided to share with you lovlies the pieces which I'm currently coveting from Igigi and a new source I found called Navbi (much more expensive, think Nordstroms for plus sizes).  I also wanted to make you aware (as if you didn't know) how awesome some modcloth stuff is. I just purchased the travel day skirt on sale for 14.99, we do love a bargain.

Things drool worthy from Igigi:


Zola Dress $118 I imagine mysels as Reese witherspoon in this dress, cute, quirky and loveable.
garnet dress in black, perfect for office or cocktails. I imagine the model as a Bond girl, with a thigh holster and .22 tucked inside her dress.
Cadence Dress $118.
I think I could take over the wor…

Shout out to local businesses!- Please support local and homegrown plus size friendly business in your area! This is the Portland edition

If you're in Portland Metro area do not miss out on going to two shops one in Northwest called Fat Fancy which has killer vintage and new styles for the plus size retro princesses out there and in the Southeast there is Savvy Plus run by the beautiful and awesome Gaya (I'm not sure if I spelled that right!

Fat Fancy- great for both men and women and the funky little shop is right in the heart of downtown Portland so it's a great destination if you're on the Northwest side of town and wanna do some shopping.

Hot Holiday Outfits from Turkey Day to the NYC Ball drop

So I am on the hunt for occasion appropriate holiday outfits here's what I've found so far:

Are you meeting your boyfriends parents for the first time this Thanksgiving? Keep young, classy and sophisticated in a belted tunic
Pair with these ankle length pants, remove the belt though and  Don't forget to tone down the accessories, if you're going to wear hair down no need for earrings, instead do a bold lipstick to match the belt, if you're wearing your hair up or you have a shorter style go with a more neutral lip and do diamond or pear studs, timeless.
