but yeah... these posts and my opinion on this situation is NOT why i'm here (just thought i'd share a little bit of background in case you were tardy for the party ;P)... i'm here now because this whole controversy about (yet again) clothes that "flatter" (aka LOW fat and NON fat clothes lmao!!!) and clothes that may NOT "flatter" but make you happy anyways... got me thinking about something i wanna know about YOU guys, my fantastic readers :)
of course this whole "how to dress fat people so they look skinny" situation isn't anything new for the fat/plus fashion community... but i do know that many (not ALL) of the blogs i read and the bloggers that follow me choose to dress themselves in clothes that make them FEEL GOOD... not necessarily what plays down their fat (as is currently being advised in some videos/blogs/books/etc)...
so my request from my readers is... tell me about a favorite-wear all the time-could never part with even if it had a dozen holes in it item in your closet that is totally against the "fashion rules" (e.g. horizontal stripes, bright colors, makes you top heavy when you're narrow on the bottom, vice versa, etc.) and if you don't have one... tell me about something that you have always wanted to have in your closet that may be considered "unflattering" by some but still makes your heart flutter and puts a smile on your face whenever you see it or try it on.
i'm not at all trying to convert people away from wearing what "flatters" them... if that is the way you like to shop then i'm sure it makes you happy :) that's all that matters... i just wanna know about something that may be considered unconventional or even unattractive on your size/shape/frame/whatever BUT you still love it regardless.
i don't know if this is a weird request lolz... but i'd really like to know this about you guys :)
my items would have to be my ultra skinny jeans that have a weird light acid-ish wash and totally hug the hell out of my ankles lolz someone even said they make my legs look like "ham hocks" LMAO but they are still my favorites!... and another growing favorite is red lipstick :) even though it makes my lips look super itty bitty... i love how sexy i feel in it!
