I'd Rather be Poor than Fat!

08 July 2014
Hey yall,

I woke up this morning before 7 am (I don't even know who I am anymore), and I thought to myself, "Like what,why did you stop updating your blog?" I had this perfect vision of what my blog was supposed to transform into. I wanted to upload only HD photos, have a new layout, and the whole nine yards. I still have that vision, because I want more for myself and for you guys as well.

So yes, I have lied over and over about re-energizing this blog. I still want to, trust me, I do. I have to get it together, for real. Thank you all for sticking around even though I've been an awful blogger.

Let me transition into explaining the title of this post. Over on my Youtube channel, I discuss things that I am passionate about or that concern me and fat acceptance is one of them. Often times, we don't love ourselves because of what we look like. And that's unfortunate. I have always been the bigger girl, but I have always loved myself because I am not defined by my size, whether I am a size 2 or a 22. I don't even consider myself to be a "plus size blogger." I am a blogger who just so happens to be plus sized. I know that I am beautiful (both inside and out) and I hope that one day (regardless of her weight) all women will come to love and appreciate themselves.

Been A Long Time Coming

Hey Thrudds,

*Lowers head in shame* I haven't updated my blog in MONTHHHHHSSSSS (almost four months to be exact). There is no excuse and I really need to do better. This was my first love and I've lost sight of that. I'm hoping that I can update at least weekly to bring some life back to this blog. I'll be getting some new equipment soon so that will be awesome!

For now, I hope you forgive me and enjoy this OOTD that I wore over the summer. Don't forget, I post almost daily on Instagram, so if you aren't over there already, CLICK HERE and follow me @mythriftedcloset.

Hey Thrudds,

I totally LOVE a print and solid bold color. This combination gives me life!! I got so many compliments on this outfit when I wore it and it fits my style completely: cute and comfy. I was rocking my first curl former set and let me tell you, it was WOOORRRKKK. I haven't had the nerve to try it again lol. Well, I hope you guys like this outfit and if you do, let me know. I read all the comments :)

When I wore this outfit, I was feeling like Pam Grier, hunny. You couldn't tell me nothing!! I actually bought the skirt a year ago and it was just sitting in my clothing storage ready to be broken out. Hope you enjoy this look!!
