Dear World. I’m Not Really An Hourglass.

FatActivismAndFatshion

there was an article published recently by definatalie on xojane entitled, “when activism gives way to advertising: how fat girl blogging ate itself.” god bless natalie for putting into words things that i’ve been feeling but have not been able to express. once again i’m entirely inspired by another lady blogger and the internet to talk about something i’ve wanted to talk about for awhile. 1 – why haven’t i been blogging as often recently? 2 – i want to talk about not being the “ideal” shape.

colored jeans and shorts are totally in right now, and we’ve discussed my quest for the perfect pair of pink pants before. the good news is, you can buy pink pants in plus size now without having to dye a white pair. manufacturers are finally getting the message that just because we’re plus size on the bottom doesn’t mean we only want to wear black pants.

netta covets: bodycon striped skirt

matelotskirt

forever21 plus has this bodycon striped skirt that will be just perfect this summer. i rock mine with a pair of little bike shorts underneath, and you can have the freedom to act like you’re wearing pants. almost. except you’ll feel like you’re azealia banks switchin down the street in a pair of converse and braided pigtails. or maybe you’ll wear it with a pair of boots and really turn it out. what would you pair this with? i mean for $13.80 … you might as well!
