“Born on a small island in a little place called the East Village the Glamazons never lost their baby fat. These song and dance girls prove that the stage is big enough for the most buxom of beauties. Giving you a large, hot helping of bawdy burlesque, striptease, go go dancing and sassy songs…they serve it up with a sexy style all their own. The girls have been described as the plus-size Pussy Cat Dolls.

The Glamazons are 4 fierce ladies who are singing and dancing their way through New York City. They’ve performed at numerous places, including The Roxy, Avalon and The Rainbow Room. These girls have also been seen strutting their stuff on the WB Morning show on more than one occasion. They are strong, sexy, plus size women who can sing anything from showtunes to hip hop.

I think one thing we can all agree on as plus sized fashionistas, is that it’s difficult to BE fashionistas, and find fashionable and well-fitting clothes. Just because we are fatties, doesn’t mean our taste for fashion is soured, we want to dress like we’re 80 years old, or we don’t care enough to look GREAT!

This is a list of some trendy and beautiful plus-size clothing stores. Some of the links are for online-only stores, some are just previews for brick and mortar stores, and some are both. They range in affordability and sizes, in which I’ve provided summaries of that info. below.

Happy shopping!

Love Your Body Day!! September 29, 2007

Filed under: Articles,Celebrities — FattieGossip @ 3:04 pm

loveyourbodyday.jpg

The NOW Foundation’s Women’s Health Project launched the Love Your Body campaign in Sept. 1998 as a national day of action to speak out against advertisements and images of women that are harmful, offensive, disrespectful and demeaning. Each year, on Love Your Body Day, activists around the country say “no” to twisted beauty standards and hazardous advertisements by holding rallies, pickets, house parties, classroom discussions and more.

Specific to the Hollywood Chapter, our focus in purpose is to address and serve the needs, issues, and concerns of women in Hollywood – both geographic and entertainment industry.  We’re working to redefine the image of women in Hollywood, and we recognize real beauty as healthy bodies – inside and out.

 

A Fattie Rant…by yours truly… September 27, 2007

Filed under: Articles,Uncategorized — FattieGossip @ 2:50 am

 

angry_baby_head.JPG

 

Okay I’m going to go on a fattie rant here so bare with me…or don’t ..I don’t care…

 

But all I want to do is ask WHY?! WHY?!

 

Why do people have to be so discriminatory and down right HATEFUL towards fat people? What’s it worth to them to become so aggressive and angry with us?

 

My fat is NOT contagious…looking at me is not going to cause your body to balloon into the size of a whale causing you infinite misery with yourself. This I promise.

 

My being fat does NOT affect your life. It does not cause you financial distress, for your significant other to break up with you, or even your car to break down. The negative experiences in your life are not a result of my fat.

 

My happiness and fortunate life is NOT a result of my being fat. It’s a result of what I’ve worked hard for, and the loved ones I surround myself with. So don’t you dare tell me I don’t deserve my nice house, or my nice car, or my hot boyfriend, with the lame ass excuse of me being a fattie.

 

You can wonder all you want as to why I “allow” myself to be fat…I’m lazy, I’m disgusting, I’m low-class, I lack discipline…I don’t give a fuck what excuses you derive. Why? Because it’s NOT your concern, and AGAIN my fat does NOT affect you in anyway! AND IT NEVER WILL!

 

I’m not your therapy for your miserable pathetic life that you’ve caused for yourself, so stop acting like I am! This means stop judging me, stop determining what I do or don’t deserve, and stop telling me I’m a horrid person for being FAT. This is NOT going to improve your life, and this is NOT going to make you a better person. So stop. Seriously just fucking shut up.

 

“Bright Lights, Big Ass” September 15, 2007

Filed under: Books — FattieGossip @ 8:22 pm

“Bright Lights, Big Ass: A Self-Indulgent, Surly, Ex-Sorority Girl’s Guide to Why it Often Sucks in the City, or Who are These Idiots and Why Do They All Live Next Door to Me?” by Jen Lancaster

(Jen is on the right)

Jen Lancaster is truly a beautiful woman, who happens to also be on the curvier side. She has a way of being brutally honest, and a bit facetious (okay, VERY facetious), but too hilarious to find it insulting. You’ll find she’s (sometimes scarily) easy to relate to, and someone you’d love to be friends with.

If curse words and being politically incorrect offends you, I do NOT recommend you read her books. Otherwise, hunt her books down and be prepared to laugh out loud!

She also has her own blogging site called Jennsylvania , and of course has jumped on the myspace bandwagon found here.

And not that I’m bias or anything, but the fact that another of my favorite author’s, being that of Jennifer Weiner who wrote Good in Bed , praises her work, is all the more reason for you to check her out and quickly realize you’re definitely a Jen Lancaster fan!
