Fat NYC: An uncharacteristically fluffy picture post

By | May 4, 2011

Me, standing on a New York street, wearing a ruffled chambray dress and black leggings and grey boots.

Marianne took this. Damn my crooked leggings.

So! Last weekend found Marianne and I in New York for the Fat Girl Fleamarket, and for our promised live Fatcast. The Flea was amazing, as usual, and I think the Fatcast went okay, though I was hopelessly distracted by technical difficulties and by the mimosas our brunch waiter totally peer-pressured us into drinking beforehand.

It was a swell trip, even if I did only get to see less than half of the folks I wanted to, as any exposure to radical fat community is always a welcome treasure. I only took a few pictures that wound up on Twitpic, and they mostly involve shoes, but here they are for your perusal.

Marianne, in a long black tank dress, tries on Fluevog boots, with are black with many little buckles.

Marianne bought these.

Marianne's leg and foot ending in a lovely pair of Fluevog ankle boots with low heels and paisley-printed leather, and latticework over the vamp.

Marianne bought these too.

A handful of fats peruse a wall of a million shiny beaded necklaces.

The shopping continued.

Black and cream saddle shoes sit on an open Fluevog shoebox.

I bought these.


Finally, I do hope y’all will forgive me a tiny bit of self-promotion here, considering I engage in such shenangians so rarely. Let’s be friends in other places too!
