I’d love to say something like fashion and fatshion should be one and everyone should live in perfect harmony, but sadly, that’s just not the way it works. The divisive nature of people, especially in the fashion world isn’t going to go away. So, in my eyes, fatshion is about taking a stand and expressing yourself regardless of your size.
I generally dress very casually. I work from home so my day to day can be rather frumpy When I do go out, I love to play with accessories and color. I like to make small statements but I’m working my way up to finding comfort in being as bold as possible.
Pic 1: I used to hide my legs at all costs; it could be a million degrees outside and I refused to wear shorts. All skirts and dresses needed tights. Now I’m embracing my legs and wearing shorts all the time. These tap shorts are so comfortable, I adore them.
Pic 2: Sewing is very new to me and I think it is the perfect way to truly express yourself because you’re in control of your fabrics, your pattern, your fit! I’m so excited by the premise of clothes made for you, by you. This is actually the first top I’ve sewn and I love the chevron print (Beth Ditto’s new collection features a red dress in the same print). It used to be a bed sheet!
Pic 3: I’ve recently fallen in love with the socks & loafers combination. This is definitely going to be a new staple for me well beyond when the trend is over. I love it that much.
I actually just wrote about this briefly. I think it pushes me to a different level of productivity even if my readership is humblingly small I love to document my adventures in cooking, crafts, and my day to day life. As I find new blogs, I find new things to be passionate about and I’ve discovered how political my body can be. This is something I plan to start blogging about in the future.
Do you! It can be hard to step outside of yourself and just be happy, but try it! It’s so liberating to put something on that you know you love and want to wear without any fears of judgement. Love yourself everyday and let your clothes reflect that attitude
