I know this is a weird title for an Outfit of the Day (#OOTD) post but I thought I’d address some stuff as it pertains to fashion and fatness. A couple of months ago I posted the look I wore for the Nashville Symphony Ball. As always, I post my looks on my instagram and wait for the likes and comments to roll in. Usually, my comments thread is pretty positive. But as the popularity grows, I see new followers and new commentary. On this day, when I posted my symphony story, someone made a snide comment about my fat arms.
Initially, I was a bit shocked. Like I said, I hadn’t received negative comments on my photos. That day was a different day – two girls were having a field day in my comments, talking about my fat arms. I was shocked. Then, I thought, “people are so used to plus-size women covering up!” EVEN in this day of plus-size model Tess Holiday, getting national and international modeling jobs, people still feel ‘some kinda way’ about big women being okay with her big-ness. Truthfully, I used to feel the same way . . .

This is the first ‘My Style’ post for 2016. It’s not flashy nor exciting – it’s filled with questions. I’ve been doing these OOTD posts for almost two years. I’ve had some hits and some ‘oh, ok, that’s cute’ situations. Like, I have friends who tell me my look is #goals. For that, I’m thankful. But I still don’t feel like I’ve hit the pinnacle … Continue reading My Style: Wait … what is my style?!?
