I’ve finally been seeing pictures of the Resort and Spring shoes. I saw some really SICK ones up for sale on ebay but the listing got taken down. Here’s a few of my favs.
(Trying to find names was futile, I’ll update when I get more info.)
More fun stuff later, I promise!
*sigh* I love tumblr. Its an escape from my day to day life. Plus, its all the things I love. This includes a lot of Curvy blogs, as I am a Curvy(I use that term loosely, I’m pretty top heavy)woman. I love them cause its great to see real bodies being glorified. And a lot of the girls have great outfits and resources. However, I woke up to a post basically saying that its impossible to lose weight. WHOA. Where the HELL did that come from? First off, that’s just an overwhelmingly negative statement to say to people who are likely dealing with body issues. 2, for some people losing weight is literally a life or death issue. Personally, when I was at my heaviest I physically felt like crap, ALL THE TIME. I was lightheaded, I was tired all the time, I had to eat every 3-4 hrs, my hands and feet were tingling. My cousin told me that I might have hypoglycemia. When I went to the doctor it was worse:Pre-Diabetes. That scared the shit out of me. Plus combined with my family’s history of high blood pressure and heart disease, things were not looking good. I managed to lose 30 lbs and keep it off. It hasn’t always been easy, but its necessary. I know that I’ll never be a size 2, nor do I want to be. But for my health I should at least try. I’m not saying that everyone should or needs to lose weight. In fact I wish I was as comfortable with my body as a lot of women on the curvy blogs are. But the point is I’m not, as I’m sure many women aren’t. That’s why we look to the blogs in the first place. To be told that we CAN’T lose weight, or that we shouldn’t try, is absolutely ridiculous. Plus, I just like to keep my tumblr a nice place. So I might have to let some people go.
By now I’m sure you’ve heard of the woman who wrote an article saying that she doesn’t like the Mike and Molly show because she doesn’t like to see plus size people making out. How awful. She’s basically saying larger people don’t need or deserve love, and that’s just not true! So tommorow a bunch of people are going to protest by kissing outside of the Hears Building. If if was in NY I’d be there in a second!! Anyway, here’s the info if you want to go. If you can’t pass it on anyway!!

I’m really thinking about starting my own line of plus sized clothes. I have a degree in fashion design(suprise xP) but I gave up on wanting to be an actual designer because I felt like I didn’t have the most original ideas or the drive. But the thing is, I don’t really have to(the ideas). I’ve always been about clothes that are actually wearable, but still fun. And that is severely lacking in plus sizes, especially in the states. Isn’t it crazy that half of the women in this country wear a size 14 or larger but plus size clothes are only 18% of clothing industry sales?! I was reading an article on The Cut today that said most fashion students don’t learn how to make clothes for larger women. But since I had to use myself as a model in my sewing classes I did! Maybe I can do this. I still want to own my own store, but maybe this is possible too.
I have 2 or 3 more but I’m beat. See ya tommorow :)
