Seven Varied Looks from This Is Us star Chrissy Metz

This Is Us's Chrissy Metz is a warm, bubbly, beautiful (inside and out) style icon. Her confidence, bold choices and cheerful personality show a glimpse into her real life persona and make her seem like a favorite girlfriend to have good, confidential conversations with.

One of the best things about Chrissy's fashion choices is that most of her outfits cost less than $100, sometimes even when she's on the red carpet!

We love her confidence and the fact that she reminds us that we do not have to spend a fortune to look great. We love that she projects genuine happiness and self-confidence everytime she appears at an event. We love that she's honest and open about her weight struggles but doesn't focus on it or make it her entire identity.

And more than anything, we love that she's killing it as an A-list actress - Katie on This Is Us - with a strong body-positive message.

This month, we're sharing seven of our favorite Chrissy Metz looks. Enjoy and be fashion-inspired!

This beautiful gown of flowers looks as beautiful and bright as a bouquet of the flowers and is perfectly on-trend with this season's bold, bright, colorful designs. Who says the color "ombre" is only for your hair? This beautiful color palette with the alluring shade paired with lace sleeves makes this look simply divine.
Chrissy attended the 2016 Glamour Women of the Year event in this simple red and black ensemble, paired with a bright red lipstick. She caps it off with a bold bright smile - one sure secret to looking beautiful all the time. Now, this look is all about lace. If you like to show too much skin, lace is definitely a better option. This look of Chrissy's is a modernized take on a '20s flapper dress.
Have an evening event and don't know what to wear? You can't go wrong with a simple, fitted, embellished and flowing A-line gown. Chrissy's effortless in this simple LBD (little black dress). In moments of doubt, waste no time in reaching for your LBD. It works for almost every occasion!
With this look, Chrissy takes a fashion risk and still pulls it off! She shows that you can be chic, yet edgy at any age or size. We loove the structured sleeves, leather feel and pleated skirt.

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.

Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:
