MAC Viva Glam featuring Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga....

I am a child of the 80's. Let me see....Michael Jackson, Small Wonder, Rainbow Brite, Madonna, Cabbage Patch Kids, Footloose....I could go on and on....So I came across an article today about Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga both doing a lipstick for MAC's Viva Glam line and I was excited. As you all know, I love red lipstick. Wish I could pull off the pink but it's never going to happen. But I love both shades and wanted to share:

They are both wearing their own shades...
Here's Cyndi Lauper's.....

Viva Glam Cyndi $14.00
And Lady Gaga's:

Viva Glam Gaga $14

Anna Scholz's Black Label....

I was checking out the Anna Scholz site this morning after seeing a few pieces that I fell in love with. I wanted to check out the whole Black Label, which is more affordable than the premium White Label collection. While the White Label is definitely beyond my reach, it is, for the most part breathtaking. I will admit though, even though the Black Label is less expensive, sadly, it's still beyond my reach for the most part. I guess I'll be sticking with F21 & H&M for awhile...sigh :( So here are my window shopping picks from the Black Label:

Horse print jersey plait maxi dress 129GBP ($196.22)

Cotton silk anchor tunic 175gbp ($266.22)

Cotton print button dress 195gbp ($296.65)

Cotton sateen anchor button dress 129gbp (196.24)

Crochet back strap top 70gbp (106.49)

Coco Rocha, size 4!, latest to be called fat by fashion industry....grrrrrrrrrrr...

So it's come to this.

After all the hype, promises and international outcry, fashion's still calling normal girls fat.

Coco Rocha is the latest victim of fashion's irresponsible, unattainable demand that young women - some barely into their teens - be emaciated.


These are the first few lines from an article that I read today on, here's the link to the article:

I was stunned after reading this article and looking at this lovely young woman's pictures. How could anyone in the entire world consider this chick too fat for anything?!?!

I had planned on doing a post today on fashion pieces but it will have to wait...This woman has not an inch to pinch. You can tell that she is probably below her ideal weight and watches EVERYTHING that she eats. I really just wanted to quickly comment on how the fashion industry has gone too far. They are asking these girls to be walking clothes hangers and not actual people. Read: If she were any thinner, I would be seriously afraid for her! Please take a look at the whole article. Shame on the fashion industry for pressuring these girls to starve themselves and I really do hope that they raise the "sample size" to at least a size 4.....OMG ;(

Just a side note: I do not normally post about these things, but after reading this article and looking at her....No words....

Tiffany of Fatshopaholic....

I know that I'm always saying this, but I am so lucky to have been able to meet the wonderful girls that I have through blogs. I met Tiffany recently through her blog What struck me most about her was of course, her awesome style but also the huge smile that she wears in all of her pictures. I really feel like I know her sometimes when I'm looking at her blog pics. I was able to catch up with her recently through an email interview:

Name: Tiffany

Age: 19

Location: Chicago, IL

Can you describe a little about your personal style? Sure. I think my personal style is all over the place. I love the 90’s so, the bright colors and bold prints of that time certainly worked it’s way into my personal style. I also love to play with textures like lace with studs and things like that. I love head pieces to!

Fashion Inspirations/Icons: Like any good fat girl I must cite Beth Ditto. I also love the styles of T.V. characters Denise Huxtable from the Cosby Show and Clarissa from Clarissa explains it all. I Love denise for her mens wear and over sized clothes and clarissa for her bright colors and prints. I also love Amanda palmer of the Dresden Dolls and Kelis.

What you love most about fashion: I love that fashion is like the prelude to who you are. When people see you they see your clothes first so, through fashion you can express anything you want. You can express the way you feel that day or your personality period. I also love fashion as art, like things that aren’t everyday wear but, look great walking down a run way.

Although as fat women we all want as many fashion options for us as straight size women I love that with fat fashion you have to work a little harder to be unique because then every outfit feels special and you know that no one else will look like you.

Valentines Day Outfit Disaster...

So last Friday, I decided it would be nice to go all out this year and to treat myself to a Valentine's Day outfit, complete with matching undergarments. So online I went, and found a great dress:

and some awesome shoes to go with it:

So I paid extra on both (2 separate companies!) for 3 day shipping to make sure that they would be here in time for V Day. So off to JCPenneys I went to pick out my undergarments and this is what I picked out:

So all this week I waited..and waited..and package from either company! So yesterday I finally decided to see what was going on and it seems UPS said they couldn't gain entry into our place and had left a note. I have never had a problem with them delivering until now. So it was 5:00 yesterday and off I go to the next city to the UPS location to pick up the dress. We get there and there was a long line with no one behind the counter for 20 minutes. Long story short, I got the dress right before 6:00.
On to the shoes, I called that company and they didn't mail them out in time so they weren't scheduled to be here until Monday! Seriously..grrrr...So I had them refund my shipping and found out what store had the shoes so I could just go and buy them in person. Turns out the store was over 20 miles away but I still had my dream of the perfect outfit so off I went. I found the shoes, came home and finally tried the outfit on. Guess what....I kind of hate the dress!
Oh yeah, earlier in the day I got my hair done, (took over 3 hours!) but I decided to cut some bangs and brighten it up a bit:

Okay, done venting :)
