SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"The joys of (being an SSBBW) is we are more down to earth and more understanding. We know how it is to be avoided and we try not to avoid people because of that and I think we are more beautiful than the skinny women." ~ MeLissa [SSBBW]

Fashion for Valentine's

It's February everyone! And if there's one thing that keeps people warm through this frigid month, it's the thought of celebrating Valentine's Day with that someone special. Whether you go all out to show your Valentine's Day spirit or you prefer to show off in a more subtle way, this list has a little something for everyone to let their love of love shine.

1. Lady in Red

A dress like this is not for the faint of heart. This eye-catching dress makes the most of your curves, but it's still demure enough for an elegant night out. Between the bold color and sophisticated silhouette, you'll catch the eye of that someone special in this show stopping dress.
2. Casual Cutie

If you and your love are a little more laid back, then this is the outfit for you. Your favorite pair of skinny jeans, neutral flats, and a red top for a pop of color makes for the perfect outfit for a comfortable and casual Valentine's Day date.
3. Cozy and Cute

If you're anything like me and you value a cozy sweater and being warm over everything else, then this is the Valentine's Day sweater for you. Thick enough to keep you warm in frigid winter weather, and on trend with distressed detailing and a cute heart print; this is the sweater for everyone who just wants to be cozy on Valentine's Day.
4. Subtle Accessory

Heart prints and bold red not your thing? No worries, because this delicate pair of earrings is a perfect, yet subtle, nod to Valentine's Day. Rose gold drop earrings with pale pink stone accents are a versatile stunner in your accessory arsenal, perfect for Valentine's Day and the rest of the year as well.
5. Pop of Colour Purse

Another accessory that can be used year-round, but is especially attention getting on Valentine's Day is a fashionable purse in attention getting red. If you prefer your outfits more neutral or classic, then this purse is a small pop of color to brighten up your outfit and your Valentine's Day.

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:
