One of the things I love about Trudy's blog Gradient Lair is that she regularly features images of black women whose style she loves. And one of the things I love about Trudy is that she includes fat women. Hers is a space in which I always feel safe. (P.S. I want that entire outfit!)

As you might have seen in yesterday's Open Thread, Flavia Dzodan, whom I admire a great deal and like with abundance, has disclosed that she has cancer. In typical fashion, she writes powerfully and beautifully about it here.
