i’ve posted in the past about how poorly fat american celebrities are styled in magazines, for award shows, on their tv shows/in their movies, etc. and i have to say that sharon rooney (star of ‘my mad fat diary,’ which is apparently a wonderful show and also is about teenagers WHEN i was a teenager, so i have no idea why i haven’t watched it) always looks really cool.
maybe it’s because the UK is, for whatever reason, pretty far ahead of the US as far as plus size clothing style*? i wonder why that is, because none of my friends from the UK have exactly painted it as any more of a bastion of fat acceptance/body positivity than other places in the world.
anyway, i’m going to spend the rest of my valentine’s day trying to tease my hair to get it poofy like that first picture.
* this may just be my personal style, but i feel like places like evans, asos curve, simply be, yours clothing, new look, etc. are a lot cooler than like, torrid and lane bryant.
