Sunday links, 9/15/13

The best part of my commute is walking past these flowers every day.

I apologize for the lateness of this link roundup–this week was long and tiring, and then yesterday was Yom Kippur, so I haven’t had the chance to put together a post until now. But I’ve lots of good links to make up for it. 🙂

Fa(t)shion
-I love all of these gold shoes.
-I read in a fat-pos Facebook community that Rachel, the creator of InYo yoga wear, is working on adding plus sizes, and is looking for feedback about what sizes people want to see. If you’re interested, shoot her an email at info at inyowear dot com.
-The fatshion-o-sphere got all excited about Cabiria’s show at Fashion Week–it was the first plus size NYFW show, which is awesome–but the clothing itself is not particularly exciting or groundbreaking. And personally, I’m not a fan of Cabiria due to their owner’s history of exclusion and shitty behavior toward other fat women.
-Through Marianne’s latest fatshion article, I found out the exciting news that the daily deals site Zulily carries plus sizes!
In praise of leggings as pants. YES.
-I keep finding adorable, fashionable kitties on Tumblr, like these two wearing pink angel wings and this one in a dapper waistcoat.

Fat Acceptance
-Lindy West’s boyfriend is as awesome as she is. He wrote beautifully about the importance of fat activism, and social justice work in general, in response to a guy who just wasn’t getting it.

-Casey writes about her experience commuting by bike while fat and disabled.
