I had a few comments thrown at me recently that made me think...
They where negative comments about being plus size and plus size fashion. I think the first rule to any sort of fashion is: There are no rules! That means that you get to dress and invent whatever you want, and if that's what you are feeling, then so be it. If there where rules in fashion there would be no such things as trendsetters. If Lagerfeld, Chanel, Versace all never put out something crazy or out of the ordinary, noone would have ever noticed them!
Now these comments where thrown at me by people who are actually plus sized themselves. Which I think is their own insecurty and their low self confidence speaking. They made me laugh more than get angry because they where just so ridiculous! I really hope those people find a ground to stand on in their life to feel good about themselves. To not judge others negatively by their own insecurities. I hope they find the confidence that is needed in them to appreciate others for their courage, style and originality. We are all original in our own ways and that should be positively recognizes.
Growing up chubby you get ancored down by this Fat terrorism all around you and it takes alot of strength and courage to get that out of your system. The first step to getting that negativity out of your system is looking into the mirror and admiring your body, seeing what you like about it. Go into a store, try something that you always wanted to try but never had the courage to. Appreciate your curves, see your individuality.
We are our own life boats thrown out to sea to save that last breath of confidence. You gotta accept your own beauty and go with what makes you feel as beautiful as you are. Please! Don't be put down by any "rules" or "Cellulite" talk Everyone has cellulite, even the top model of all top models, even babies! Nobody is perfect and nobody is born with glitter and gold in their hair. Wear your Jeggins, leggings and mini skirts, show those curves proud and confident! There are a million women and men who will appreciate you for it.
