When someone with a 'modern' way of thinking thinks of curves, they think of fat, undesirable women. But why? No, really, WHY? What's so wrong with not being size 0? Congratulations and bless you souls who were born with an abnormally high metabolism, AWESOME! Seriously, good for you. AND, good for those ladies who were NOT born with that same quality. Do not try and get yourself there. I mean, I'm not going to deny that being too large is unhealthy. It can affect your heart pressure that can lead to lifelong consequences.
Ladies, embrace your curves. I mean REALLY work them. Curves are sexy, they are BEAUTIFUL. A few decades ago, men desired and preferred curvier women because they were more capable of child bearing and had more to offer. Why has that changed? Why has society and the media put such a negative connotation attached to the word 'curves'? Stop being misguided and just owned by the mainstream media's love for twig models. Now, this brings me to another issue.
When someone asks me who my favorite model is and why I love them, I respond with none. Now see, I don't want to offend anyone with my opinion here because I know a lot of my friends praise some models (as well as 95% of style based tumblrs), but this is my blog and I can write what I want. I don't understand why anyone can like a model for being a model. Why would someone admire a person for the way they were born? It's all luck and that's also why I don't believe in love at first sight. I will admit that some models definitely have some redonkulously suh-weeet senses of style, don't get me wrong, but why should a model be worshiped based on the way they look when they had absolutely NO control on what they're physical attributes turned out looking like.
What they do have power in controlling what they look like is their weight. That is more often followed by losing weight in unhealthy ways because they work as puppets to these companies who pay them by the dozens of thousands of dollars. I would NEVER put a price tag on my health, a price tag on perpetuating a dangerous beauty standard to the dozens (considering I would have thousands of teens worship me), and if anyone does then they need a serious intervention. Everyone has a different vision of beauty of course, which may only be skin deep. The subconscious is a wild abyss we are just barely beginning to pioneer.
So long story short, everyone is beautiful no matter what your size is, no matter what anyone tells you, not even that dumb Lipo-Zene 'miracle pill' commercial. Oh and yes, I'm aware I sound like that one aunt that always harasses you with questions on your love life every now and then proceeding with some tips on how to 'push your boobs to a new high' with the miracle bra she is about to hand you while you cringe in fear.
I haven't come across any brands that seem to really cater stylish clothes for plus size girls, until now! I'd like to introduce you guys to a brand called 'Simply Be'. They offer clothing for curvy, beautiful women to simply be themselves (admit you love the corniness..). It's an online shop based in the UK. Lots of ladies believe that there is no point really to even care what they dress like due to their proportions.. What the HELL???? Gals, it's all about confidence!!!! I hate when I hear guys and girls in stores whispering 'man, that's so cute but I know I can't pull it off..' UMM HELLO?! LITTLE MISS/MISTER LIFE SUX, YES YOU CAN.
Simply Be offers tons of brands that offer unique accessories and sweet pieces that flatter and accentuate curves at great prices. They're striving to bring their awesome vision to the United States! And if that's not enough to convince you, they offer FREE SHIPPING. Who the heck doesn't like free shipping? Totally takes away the hassle of trying to calculate in your head what the total will be for your order. There ain't no risk with buying with them y'all especially because you get 20% off your first order! They've got over 4,000 employees ready to answer any questions (very impressive considering Miracle Eye customer service consists of me, mom, and dad, heh).
Check Simply Be out if you're looking for some well-formed, classy, and delightful pieces of clothing or just some dreamy oxfords and loafers oozing with sugar :-)
A few of my favorites are these killer snake print palazzo pants, might I add that these are on sale (wait WHAT?!) saving you $26 from their original price. This cream colored frilly angel dress is also on sale (literally again WHAT.), saving you $44. This denim maxi skirt is also a favorite (jaw is officially detached considering this skirt is also on sale). It would look great paired with a velvet bustier to keep it 90s, or a dreamy crochet top to keep the gypsy vibes goin'.
