i’ve posted in the past about how poorly fat american celebrities are styled in magazines, for award shows, on their tv shows/in their movies, etc. and i have to say that sharon rooney (star of ‘my mad fat diary,’ which is apparently a wonderful show and also is about teenagers WHEN i was a teenager, so i have no idea why i haven’t watched it) always looks really cool.
maybe it’s because the UK is, for whatever reason, pretty far ahead of the US as far as plus size clothing style*? i wonder why that is, because none of my friends from the UK have exactly painted it as any more of a bastion of fat acceptance/body positivity than other places in the world.
anyway, i’m going to spend the rest of my valentine’s day trying to tease my hair to get it poofy like that first picture.
* this may just be my personal style, but i feel like places like evans, asos curve, simply be, yours clothing, new look, etc. are a lot cooler than like, torrid and lane bryant.
Fucking bombshell. Her and rebel Wilson… Faves

Princess Unikitty kigu made for me by me!!~
I played with satin stitching and machine embroidery on this project, the face turned out sooo cute! As always the hood is lined with a cotton print, and the rest is all fleece!
Shoot me an ask or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to ask about commissioning a custom, or for tips on making your own!
It would be so neat if you could make me a Bulldog one before Halloween. I’m totally writing myself a reminder!

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!
Um, yes. I will be doing this.
Yes. I support this movement
watch me be loud as hell
Oh i WILL be doing this.
