I think ANYONE can be beautiful. You can be a size two or a 22 and look fan freakin' tastic (case in point, my friend Michelle, who ALWAYS looks pretty, and I'm not just saying that because she's my girl!)
But stuff like THIS pisses me off!
To summarize - this British writer, Tanya Gold, buys herself a fancy pants designer dress every year or so. It's her own little treat to herself, I get that. But it seems she put on some weight and is FLABBERGASTED she can't find a designer dress in a size 16.
Oh please lady!
I love the article, this woman is clearly a great writer, and if you read the story, she clearly did not get treated very well when she was at the stores. But I ask you this... when was the last time you've EVER seen a size 16 runway model for Chanel? Or Prada?
The answer is a big steaming pile of NEVER!
I'm sorry, but let's be realistic. I'm a size eight and I'm too fat for fashion, but I don't demand Prada give me answers as to why I don't fit their clothes. They know the answers as well as I do... if I just lose some damn weight, I will fit their clothes.
Thems the facts kids, I don't make em' up, I just tell ya. Because I know!! Fashion is barely meant for THIN people!!! You have to be a skinny ass-anorexic mutherfucker!!
I was actually moved to leave a comment on the Daily Mail site, in which I called a spade a spade (as I'm known to do).
The question is: How long does it take you to write the article, call the PR people for all the brands, etc? In that time, you could have been on the treadmill burning off some calories for next year's shopping spree!!
Seriously, if there's something you don't like about yourself, like your weight, you can change that. Don't listen to people that try to convince you you're "meant to be" fat, that it's all genetics and you don't have a choice because it's BULLSHIT. You can control your weight, and once you do, you can buy the damn dress that's so important to you.
Just don't make me and the rest of the world feel bad because shit's not going your way!
I'm just sayin'!!
