Pft, so they say.

It's something we have always heard the fashion police saying growing up - that "fat people" should avoid wearing stripes. Well I, for one, refuse to live in the past and follow the medieval idea that one should try all they can to hide one's size and avoid patterns that accentuate it and draw the eye (better to hide away in a brown paper sack that makes you look even bigger - because you know, that makes so much more sense). On the contrary - accentuating my body with things that draw the eye is exactly how I love to dress. I am big, curvy and tall ~ all eyes will be on me anyway, I might as well give a fabulous show. Dress has always been my strongest suit, so bring on the tight stripes!

With this sort of outfit, since I am clearly having fun with it, I love to add a little fun with some strong makeup (fake lashes and big red lips always pack a punch) and a large hair accessory - in this case, a big glittery bow!

So the next time you find yourself staring straight into the face of stripes, no matter your size, take the challenge head-on and work every single stripe in a fierceless way. You'll find yourself winning the battle - and the war - against the ol' fashion police. Screw purveyors of so-called rules. There are none.
