I have to say fall has been pretty good to us here in the North!  I like to take advantage of the warm weather with bare legs and dresses.  This is what I wore!

Island Wedding! Jumper Love

Hey y’all.

I’m back from the beautiful Island of Jamaica!  I can’t even tell you how hot and fabulous it was.  I witnessed the marriage of my best friend Kim to her incredible soul mate and life partner Marc.  This is what I wore to the blessed event.

I must have this Camo jacket.  My friend @MrTimChan will approve this purchase for sure he’s been on me for over a year to get one.  I think this is it!  Loves it!

I love everything about this outfit.  I will probably steal the whole look for myself and I won’t feel bad about it!  I can see myself sipping tea in this one while in the park watching the dogs play.

A Perfect 14?

 

I stumbled on this movie “A Perfect 14” online today.  I’m not sure what to think about it.  I love the new-found attention that plus size fashion and modelling is getting now, I feel like I’m a part of the club, but after watching the trailer I feel part cheerleader part fat basher. On the one hand, it’s fantastic to showcase women bigger than the norm as beautiful desirable beings.  On the other hand I’m looking at many of the women and thinking, they’re not that big, really,  A Perfect 14?  I wish.  Isn’t a 14 just average?   Am I a hater?  I don’t want to turn into one of those people who, because I’m bigger than a 14, acts like anything less than my size isn’t important.  I mean we’re all in this together, right?!  Who am I to say who is fat enough to represent the group?  I think my problem is that I feel like there isn’t enough of a representation of  the typical “plus size” woman.  It’s like even when plus size women are represented we’re represented by the version closest to largest example of the norm and with that comes the feeling that you’re still too big for this under served group that you belong to.  It’s a never-ending circle.

I’m still intrigued by the trailer and would love to see the film in its entirety.

 

What do you think?  Am I being an overly sensitive whiner?   Is there a such thing as being too small to be considered a big girl?
