A spirit of gratitude is something we should carry with us each and everyday, but on this day that we set aside to celebrate that spirit and acknowledge the many things we have to be thankful for, I have to take a moment to thank you guys...my awesome readers.
Though the broad stroke idea of taking pictures of yourself and talking about clothes, bags, earrings and things is just fun and all about what's on the surface; I think that what's so special about curvy and plus size personal style bloggers is that it can be so much more for the beautiful ladies (and gents) reading our blogs. We all get comments, emails, notes, stopped on the street about how we've inspired confidence and self-love and for that I'm truly thankful!
I began blogging a few year after I was inclined to, but better late than never. In my mind, I just wanted to share my thoughts on style. Working in fashion for so long, being the only fat girl backstage at a show or representing brands whose clothes I can't wear, never made me feel less than. It made me feel like voicing my opinion. I'm worthy of looking as great as I want to look. I'm worthy of wearing clothes that I want to wear. All of my skinny friends both in work and at home who've ever been shopping with me shocked at how I can look the way that I do when they saw my options vs. theirs. "Is it like this for all big gals?" - Umm, yeah. (we have SO many more options now but rewind 5 years ago, then rewind 10 -___-)
So I just started sharing. And, in sharing...found you amazing people who take your time to come here to have a look at what I'm wearing, have a laugh or for some, to discover "hey! I can do that too".
Of course I'm thankful for everything in my life, my family, friends, my love, my work but I'm also SO incredibly thankful for all of you! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
