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]

Jasmine Elder's Plus Size Bridal Collection

Jasmine Elder launched Jibri in 2009 to create chic yet comfortable pieces for plus-size women after designing her clothes for a long time. As a bold fashion lover, she has continuously raised the bar for plus-size fashion as she questions the status quo with each design she makes.

Her fashion choices are bold and designed to accentuate the curves of plus-size women. Celebrities like Jill Scott, Tasha Cobbs, Gabourey Sidibe, Ambey Riles and Tamela Mann have all worn her clothing.

Over the years, Jasmine has added a bridal line to her fashion collection. Her non-traditional bridal line is unique and bold. Each piece is artistically woven for daring, beautiful, unconventional plus-size brides who aren't afraid to show their personalities, even as they enjoy their special day.

The collection includes pieces for destination weddings, second-time brides, courthouse weddings, and they range from gowns to jumpsuits and colored evening wears.

Her advice to plus-size women is this: "Don't be afraid to be glamorous. The rest of the world is wearing boring jeans and T-shirts. Blah! Life is too short to blend in."

We love it, and we love her. If you, a curvy friend or family are getting married soon, be sure to check out her collection, you just might fall in love with it (and her) too

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.
