My blogger friend, Lala and I, took a trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Before the snow fell in Michigan, we had a mini photo taking session.

Jeans are so hard to find for mostly all body shapes, especially since I have short, fat legs. So finally, I went to Burlington Coat Factory and found a pair of stretch jeans. OMG. They are nice and comfortable. Doesn’t even pinch my belly rolls either.

I got this peplum jacket from Torrid last year. Had to pull this staple piece out the back of the closet. I really love this shot! So laid back, which I rarely am. Haha.

I remember being a girl very much so into fashion and going to stores where they had a small, tiny sections for plus-size women all the way in the back of the store or near the furniture, in the basement. No effort was put into the style of the mannequins. No bright colors or bold prints. The spaces were drab and dull. But the straight-size section was up front. Colors and racks upon racks of choices. A true stylista’s playground. For a little girl who was a size 16 at 13 years old, how do you think that made me feel? How many of us has had to take the walk of shame to the plus-size section and settle? So, I bought a pair of jeans that were three sizes too small. My “fitspo” jeans. If I could starve myself enough to get into those jeans, shop in the straight-size section, then and only then would my worth align. Worth hadn’t belong to fatties like me. Or that’s what society had brainwashed me to believe. Although we have a long way to go, I’m so glad there are a retailers out there that I can actually fit my wide size 24 thighs into these @warpweftworld jeans and top comfortably. Have you ever bought too small clothes for motivation to lose weight? What size were you when you were little? Any body can chime in. Let’s chat.
