SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"We are people, just like you. We have heart, a soul, feelings. We see past the crap that many people take for granted, because we look deep within to find the value. We can be the best of friends, passionate and dedicated mates, most understanding but tough bosses. Take a second to talk to us, and get to know us. You will probably like us." ~ Nikki [SSBBW]

Fashion Items Fit For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving! A good time to meet family, spend quality time and have great food. It is important to look good while still being warm and comfortable.

Here are 5 fashion items to keep you looking great and cozy:

Statement Boots

Boots are versatile and can be worn with several apparels. Knee high boots have the power to transform your look. Pair them with a dress or skirts or wear them over your neatly tucked jeans.


Sweaters

Sweaters come in various forms - crewneck, cashmere, turtleneck, off shoulder etc. They keep us warm and homey.

Try more stylish sweaters like the cutout sweaters. And remember to always keep it simple. Match a stylish sweater with matching pair of jeans or leggings to look effortless. You can also match them with plaid or checked shirts. It's chic and adds an extra layer of warmth.


Trench Coats

The trench coat is a wardrobe staple for fall. It is classy and can be worn to any function. On Thanksgiving, pair a trench coat with a skirt or dress. Make sure the skirt or dress is noticeably longer than the coat. If you want to add some illusion to your waistline, choose the belted trench coat. It gives a more dramatic waistline and flair. Trench coats never go out of style.


Leather Jacket

Although a leather jacket can be expensive, it is worth the investment especially when it fits you perfectly. A leather jacket can be worn at all times and matched with everything.

You can wear one effortlessly and pull of an edgy look.


Scarves

Scarves are beautiful accessories to dressing. It adds colour to your attire and at the same time keep you warm. Wrap thick knitted scarves around your neck. Go an extra mile by using a statement brooch to pin it in place.

The first step to giving your best at any occasion is being comfortable and feeling confident.

We hope these tips help you achieve that this Thanksgiving. Let us know if they work for you!

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.
