Fat folk are constantly told we need to dress to flatter our figures. Ya’ll can miss me with that.
When I saw this dress, I was weirdly drawn to it. I’m not particularly feminine, and while I like pink and lace I never wear it because I’m just not comfortable in them. Still, this dress sucked me in like whoa. When I put it on I knew it wasn’t flattering: doesn’t define my waist, adds poof to the places where I’m already bigger, and not a great color for my skin. But owning something this pretty makes me smile, and I’m not going to not wear a dress I spent money on.
I’m also wearing dainty jewelry, and I’ve read/heard from multiple sources that the bigger your body is the bigger your accessories should be, so people looking at you aren’t confused I guess. I don’t know. I mean, I do understand what’s behind that, but I give no fucks. I like this necklace and it looks pretty with my unflattering dress, so I’m gonna wear it and smile when I pass a mirror.
And I know it might be weird to have a picture of some flip flops, but the gold on the edges just thrills me so much that I have to share.
