I like the word Fatshion. I just see it as a niche. Like there are blogs about dressing modestly, haute couture, I’ve even seen blogs about fashion for very petite girls… it’s just another fashion category that describes something. It’s just fashion for fat girls. I also like it because it it empowering. The word fat used to be so off limits (and still is to some) that linking fat to fashion is really just putting the word out there. I just see fat as a description. So it’s fashion for fat people.
Wear whatever the fuck you want. Fuck rules, dos and don’ts, trends, and what other people think you “should wear.” I really developed my own style and got into fashion when I stopped caring about what others would think. And then I started experimenting because it was no longer “Oh I can’t wear that” or “What will people think if I wear THAT?”
Skinny jeans, boots, and a long baggy top with a wide belt, any sort of secretary dress from the 1950s and 60s, pencil dresses and skirts.
I think it has radically changed my life. I’m writing everyday which is sometimes I’ve always wanted to do, I’m connecting with fabulous people, and I feel really good about myself for once. And I also feel like I’m learning everyday – which is invaluable to me.
