Fatshion - It's all about the attitude



Hello everyone!
Today i come to talk about...fashion! Yes,fashion. One thing i love,for real,and that i wish i could talk more about here in my blog and which i haven't done yet,or not in the way it should be done,so, this is my start on it, and who knows if my little place turns into a fashion blog? It would be fun.

Fatshion! Some of you may know about it,some others may not. I just came to get familiar with this term very recently even if my whole life i have been plus size (well,since i was 4/5).
It's important for people to understand that fashion is not something that is a size 0 only, or that only skinny girls are fashionable or even look good in fashionable clothes and that all rest of the 'normal' women, which are like 90% of the entire world female population can't go into fashion. That's so wrong,and you know it,or you should know it!

I love fashion,i do,and i love to buy clothes that make me feel pretty and nice, even if they are big size and not all of them fit me as awesome as they could.We all have different shapes and even small sized girls can't pull certain look that a more curvy girl can.

A few years back i found it difficult to find good clothes for my size,it was hard as i wanted to fit up to 3 sizes down from what i wear but lately i find that more and more stores get into big sizes and that's a good thing. It shows that they are finally aware that many women look for fashion in sizes that are over 8 or 10 (talking in UK sizes,even if i'm Portugese.lol).

H&M,Primark,Asos,Forever 21 and a lot more of other stores where we love to buy, create plus sized clothes and even plus size lines that are for big girls only and that,my dears,is fantastic.


Red Framed Shades - H&M
Basic white tee - Paul Costelloe
White and Red Striped Skirt - Primark
Light Pink Tights - Primark
Light Pink Shoes - Blanco

This is me, a photo taken last Saturday. At each day that goes by i get to love my body more and more just as it is,
with all the curves,the chunky tights,all the things that make me a big girl but still doesn't take away my beauty.
At the age of 20 i came to accept myself in away that i was never capable of doing before and i'm so glad i could finally do that.

Yesterday i went to the beach,i wore a bikini and didn't felt self-conscious because looking around i saw so many girls like me,and they were not afraid of showing themselves either,so,why should I?

Now that you know about this go ahead and spread the word if you want.
Either you are a size 0,16 or 28 you're beautiful and you need that confidence in yourself.
If it's cute,you deserve to have it on you.If you feel comfortable go ahead and be daring.Be fashionable,be small,medium or big,be amazing,because that's what fashion is about,feeling good with ourselves.


And now to end in glory, 4 of the most lovely Fatshion Bloggers i have been following.

  3. You are so pretty. I love your skin tone and your hair.
    I couldn't agree more with this post. I struggle with this as well, but like you, I love fashion. And I am actually beginning to love my body more and more now.

  5. @Ana Aww,thanks so much!!! My skin tone...jeez,it drives me nuts,mostly in summer.I wear a +50 SPF protector and still i get spots all over my skin,it's kind of horrible.
    You should embrace yourself as you are.I struggled since early childhood with being overweight but finally came to accept myself as i am recently. ^^

    @Estefany Thanks so incredibly much!! ^^
