Honey, eat the fruitcake…

By | December 24, 2008

Going home for the Holidays is rough, isn’t it? We primp, preen, slap on some sassy heels and apply the mascara *just* so only to walk into a spitting image of ourselves 10 or twenty years younger and cringing in the corner. Family gathers around us and smile. Fingers poke, prod and pretend. They say […]

Musical Interlude: Fatty McDance

By | December 18, 2008

YouTube justifies its existence to me and gets to live another day. If this video fails to make you want to jump up and shake your fat ass in every direction, I worry about the state of your immortal soul.

Fashion Overdose gets the stick. Sort of.

By | December 17, 2008

The spectacular Substantia Jones, the bodaciousness behind The Adipositivity Project (be warned, that link is not safe for work), sent me a missive yesterday, which read in part: …Fashion Overdose needs a Lesley smack-down. The good news is everything in 4x and 5x is half off through Friday with discount code 4×5x. The bad news […]

The Floating Heads *or* Look, Don’t Look!

By | December 16, 2008

Floating heads are all the rage. In the fatsosphere and beyond, we get floating heads and elegantly draped bodices adorned in jewels and sparkle. Alluring smiles and dashing eye shadow frames perfectly pecked cheeks and the cutest dimples I’ve ever seen on a grown man. Hair is coifed and sexy and when not, attention is […]

Unicorns Aren’t Real: An Extended Metaphor

By | December 10, 2008

By now, if you haven’t heard about Oprah’s hand-wringing over her spectacular-though-unintentional comeback into the squishy open arms of Fat (welcome back, baby!), well, you probably don’t read very many size acceptance blogs. But I’ll break it down for you: Oprah’s regained weight. This confounds and saddens her. (Lather, rinse, repeat.) This old fairytale reminded […]

Outfitblogging: Sundress Survivalism

By | December 9, 2008

Click through to the Flickr versions for outfit info. This may come as a total surprise (sarcasm!) but: I wear dresses. All dresses, all the time. Even on the rare occasions I’m wearing jeans out of necessity (like this weekend, in which I wore jeans and hiking boots to take pictures in the great dead […]

By | December 9, 2008

Hey kids! You may remember my post about You may have thought to yourself, “wow, self, I’d totally like to order from them but it seems like it might be a crapshoot, therefore I sure wish Lesley from Fatshionista would come up with a way to enable a probably-unnecessary personal purchase during the season […]

Ass-essment: Canadian Airlines and Nonfunctional Fatness

By | December 5, 2008

By now, I expect it’s fairly well-traveled news that Canadian airlines are being forced to comply with a decision by the Canadian Supreme Court, that all air passengers have a right to a one-person, one-fare rule. This is topical because of the obvious controversy in how this is being applied to fat people. Essentially, the […]

Outfitblogging: The Spice of Life

By | December 4, 2008

Click through to the Flickr versions for outfit info. I don’t wear the exact same outfit twice. Ever. It’s true that I probably put a disproportionate amount of thought into what I wear every day – and this goes back to the days in which I discovered Style, during my heavily subcultural youth – but […]
