It’s Friday. Why not start off with some fun fluff?
-The ridiculousness of the concept of “extra weight.”
–A few thoughts on Love Your Body Day.
–Five things every gym should already be doing.
-Surprise! Our friends’ attitudes about their bodies influence our own.
-An interview with an awesome fat yoga teacher.
-Passing this along from Fatshionista: a request for Pinterest users willing to be interviewed for a school project.
–Jessica Dee’s Etsy shop has gone live! I think my favorite piece is this brocade skirt.
-This Firefly shirt, which I found through Natalie, is just amazing.
-From the other Natalie comes this unedited rant about looking into fatshion’s navel. She makes so many good, important points–make sure to check it out. I have a lot of thoughts about all of it, and may expand them into a post later.
–Worker abuse is a fashion don’t.
-This Etsy store sells gorgeous, cheap appliques that could easily be made into necklaces by adding a ribbon.
-Through Sal’s post on warm winter tops and jackets, I found the gorgeous clothing brand Desigual. They only carry up to a US 14, booo. But if you’re an in-betweenie, check them out, because their stuff is unique and amazing. I would especially want this shirt if it came in my size.
–Seven cute, quirky, and possibly rule-breaking plus-size sweaterdresses.
-A new advice column I like: Turning the Screw.
–Identity politics and grammar in the developmental writing classroom.
–30 things you don’t have to have by 30.
–Why Occupy’s plan to cancel consumer debt is brilliant. Seriously, this plan is so creative and amazing, it just makes me want to jump for joy.
–The last neighborhood I loved: Rockaway, Queens.
–Ask Lesley: How do I stop accidentally offending people all the time?
