Fashion That Fits

14Jun08

Okay, I do notice the void in the fashion world when it comes to plus size women and black models. Let’s face it…. it’s not there! With Whitney winning ANTM recently and Tyra never being the “skinny model”, why is it that big girls STILL get no love? We don’t live in a “perfect” world and not every one is a size 4 and light-skinned. This is one is for you… and no tacky fashions either! The hottest trends in your size.

    Hello, I was enjoying your blog and decided to do some browsing of past posts and I came upon this one. Again I love your blog, I’m trying to understand the need to state the fact that your a size 4 and light skinned after you tried to address the issue of discrimination against plus size and darker skinned women. This is your blog, so of course this is your POV
    and you can type what you like but if this post was about uplifting plus size ladies in fashion,
    that statement was a bit rude and unneccessary. The way you said it is what bothers me, “everyone is not a size 4 and light skin, but I am” its like you didn’t want to be outcast in the not so fab catogory. I’m not attacking you, I just thought i’d bring that to your attention from an outside POV. NAMASTE

    i understand what u are saying and i didnt really think of that like that. i was, like u said, addressing the issue and voicing my opinion and dislike with the discrimination. but i didnt say it to “not be in the not-so-fab” category, i was trying to say “i’m not a victim of that but it still bothers me” becuzz most of the people who have an issue with it is usually someone directly affected by it… most ppl who are not affected by the discrimination don’t care. everyone in my family is thick misses, with the exception of like two ppl and of course it affects them (but it most definitely doesnt affect their self-esteem!) so im addressing it.

    sorry if it offended anyone… i seriously didn’t mean it like that…. thanxx for checking out the blog though! hope that wasn’t a turn off!

  4. Toccara Jones is hot guys. She is the best in fashion. I love it when she models.

    perfect= lightskin…what??????????? I read it as you equating a perfect world with everyone being a size 4 and lightskin

    not to blow anything out of proportion, but little subtile, usually unnoticable statements like this shows that colorism is still an issue…smh

    good blog overall, clearly cuz i got this far 🙂
