I remember way back I used to dislike plus-sized women and thought they were what a woman would be if she wasn’t pretty. That was my fallacious and outrageous thinking until I met one and fell in love with her. That moment, I knew I was a moron to have had beef for big boned ladies.
And when I questioned myself – how did I end up liking what I initially despised, I found out that she was very confident and happy with the way she looked and as a result took time to package her looks with striking make-up and outstanding couture. Yeah…she knew how to dress not just to kill but to hack your heart to pieces. And I followed her like a dog on a leash; totally love-struck and wanting every piece of her.
Time to time I come across plus-sized beauties who remind me of this old flame and I appreciate them more than ever. Black celebrity Monique has redefined what it means to be ‘flabulous’ with projects like the movie ‘Phat Girls’; Oyin of blogsville has showcased her lifestyle with such adventure and glamour, you can’t help liking her – with her combination of smartness, pretty looks with outgoing nature plus the fact that she knows how to look real good (thanks for those photos!).
I won’t be surprised if she’s seen the site or patronized the outfit called Simply Be. (click on the link to go there).
If you’re a plus-sized lady on blogsville, you need to check out the fabulous stuff on this site which encourages you to ‘simply be’ your true glamourous self. From dresses, tops, jeans, jackets, trousers, lingerie to sports wears and foot wears, they’ve got some amazing stuff; cool clothing catalogue and collections.
Check out the ‘Animal Instinct’ collection, browse the ‘Sci-Fi' range, get a load of the ‘Salon Girl’ get-up. I’ve seen some of these on a plus-size lady and she looked so cool I had to remind myself that I was married.
Okay, it’s not like I’m gonna try fatten up my wife to transform her into the plus-sized category ‘cause she doesn’t have a body structure for that. But hey, I think other sized women will also get some good stuff on there.
So if you’re flabulous and phat in the house, show them how sweet and sultry you can look by simply being yourself!
