Day One -- Mission Statment for the blog to end all Chubby Girl Blogs

This is the first post of a fashion blog for all of the women who love who they are. Even if that happens to be a size 10+ and you really hate that you can't find that awesome Ali Ro Two Tone Tank Dress dress in -our- size, doesn't mean we can't appreciate fashion.

I love reading fashion blogs and magazines. I love the tips and the tricks and the cloths that made me think I was seeing a mythical unicorn prancing across the pages. But I hated that by having a figure, even for my friends who don't have a zip code dedicated to the size of their ass, like i do, couldn't find those cloths in their size. But what was worse, is that these where the magazine claiming women empowerment, but never showed anyone on their pages beyond the age of 25 as a model, and definitely no one over a size 5. (Really I mean a size 2 but I wanted to give some leeway for the accesses that grace the covers.)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bitching about an industry that I love. But I just wanted an alternative for those who embrace their curves.

So, I decided I would take it upon myself, and through the inspiration of one of my favorite authors these days, Jen Lancaster, to tell my take on the world. My interests, my hardships with my weight, and most importantly, my love of shoes.

So, I hope this blog not only helps me to vent my shoe fixation, but also to help those who may not be a size 2 and their shoe love to expand and grow into new heights, (or just expanding into the hall closet for storage).
