I haven't bought anything new in a really long time, except for this grey scoop-neck top from Old Navy, which of course I had to buy online since they don't want fatties in their brick-and-mortar stores anymore:
Even though I look like I just smelled a fart in that picture, I was just squinting into the morning sunshine, lol. I really like the shirt, especially because it was so affordable, and I'm wearing one of my favorite necklaces, which was gifted to me by some dear friends.
On the subject of fat fashion, here's a terrific article that I love with one million hearts [H/T to Elle] in which Pepper M. Martin posts amazing pictures of herself gorgeously breaking 11 Plus-Size fashiong "rules." A+
Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: What are your favorite fashion rules to break?
Have at it in comments! Please remember to make fat women of all sizes, especially women who find themselves regularly sizing out of standard plus-size lines, welcome in this conversation, and pass no judgment on fat women who want to and/or feel obliged, for any reason, to conform to beauty standards. And please make sure if you're soliciting advice, you make it clear you're seeking suggestions—and please be considerate not to offer unsolicited advice. Sometimes people just need to complain and want solidarity, not solutions.
