vivalafifi asked: WHERE'D YOU GET THAT SKIRT in your last photo-post? (btw: I popped over from HeyFatChick who reblogged you.) :-)
My ma got it for me in the US of A in the Forever 21 plus size section. Not sure if they still have it on their website? xxxxxx
How much more important fashion and beauty regimes are to fat women as a means of acceptance.
You have these fascinations with “fresh faced beauty” and celebrities without makeup on and how much guys love girls in tshirts and sweats.
“Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no make-up on
That’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don’t take it wrong”
But that never-NEVER- applies to fat women.
If we don’t have fierce make up skills, do our hair up, have our nails freshly manicured, dress like we’re plus sized models, we’re slobs. Doesn’t matter if I’m straight out the shower with clean clothes—- if we aren’t looking trendy, we’re gross.
I am more of a tank top and jeans girl, I don’t wear make up every day and all I do to my admittedly short hair is straighten it and I get told all the time I should take more pride in my appearance.
While thin girls are walking around wearing the exact same shit and being lauded as low maintenance.
Do you honestly think someone like, say, Honey Boo Boo’s mother would be ridiculed as much if she wore expensive clothing, had manicured nails, had her hair perfectly styled and had someone do her make up every day? No.
So while you all are shitting on Taylor’s post and saying we can just go to Walmart, remember that that shit isn’t enough for people like you. To be afforded human decency while fat, you need to embody “the best of the best”.
It’s like society thinks that we owe them maximum effort and time and money spent if we dare to be fat.
