SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"An SSBBW knows what it is like to NOT be "average". To me, this is extremely important for development of a mature personality. It is a necessity for understanding other people that you truly comprehend what it is like to be "different". Fat women know this. They experience it every day. That fact alone makes them richer people with a mind that is more open than "average", simply because it forces them to view things from a different paradigm than "average"." ~ Mogens (BC, Canada) [FA]

Boots and Coats

It is that time of year again...cold! It can be a struggle to find outdoor gear that fits. Here are a few options I have found.

Boots

For boots, it is a good idea to measure you ankle and your calves. I have found that some boots will work beyond the size chart. It is always a good idea to look at the reviews listed on the item, if there are any. Stores like Catherines, Lane Bryant, Avenue, and Payless should have some options to try on in store. I recently received a pair of Uggs as a gift. The shaft is split and held together with a toggle. They are not wide boots, but they work because of the design.

There are many formulas for weatherizing boots online.

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.

Light yourself a candle bright.
I'll you, if you will me invite
To dance within that gentle light."

And there He lives and dies."
