My blog is my happy place and I try to make it a happy place for others. We don't discuss politics or religion here because you never know who you're going to offend. It's all about one thing- our love for vintage fashion! I try to also not post about negative things but as a voluptuous vintage lover, this topic struck me as one that needs to be talked about.

Apparently, there's a discussion out there in blog land about curvy gals in vintage and there were some really nasty things said. Luckily, I haven't found this discussion (and I don't want to, so please no posting links of it, thank you!) But in case any of my readers did find it and it stirred up some yucky feelings for anyone, I wanted to throw in my two cents as a curvy gal who loves vintage and founded a whole blog on the subject....

I believe that people who say nasty things about others say it because they have issues with themselves. They aren't really "fat chick haters". In reality, I bet they wish they had a bit more junk in the trunk, ya know? That being said, I ask all of you to pull out a full length mirror, get down to your skivvies and look at yourself today. Look at your curves or lack thereof, look at all of your scars, stretch marks, tan lines, freckles, lumps, bumps, wobbly bits, knobby knees, chicken wings, muffin tops, etc...and embrace yourself. Love yourself for who you are and what you really look like under all of those vintage clothes. Pick out 5 things about yourself that you think are beautiful and post them on your blog, facebook, whatever. Then, pick 5 other people in blogland and post one thing about that person that you love (and really envy them for!) Leave the discussion mentioned above dead and replace it with love in this challenge. Love yourself, love others and love vintage...because that's what brings us all together. So, here goes my part of the challenge:
What I love about myself
1.) The freckles across my nose, especially when they darken in the summer time. (When I put on my makeup, I wipe off the makeup that covers my freckles because I like them to show.)
2.) My long neck- my favorite part of my body
3.) The skin on my back- It's smooth and pretty. I like to wear low-back tops or dresses to show it, there are more freckles there.
4.) my little nose- I got it from my momma. Thanks, mom!
5.) My hands- I dont think my hands are necessarily pretty. They sure aren't hand model material. They have scars, frequently cracked knuckles and chewed off nails but they allow me to do all of the things that I love like sewing, pin curling my hair, feeling fabric on a vintage dress.
Now for the people that I totally envy and love

1.)Charlotte from Tuppence Ha'Penny has great legs! Looks fabulous in a swimsuit!

2.)Jenny of Yesterday Girl has beautiful piercing eyes

3.)Karlee from Gatsby and Me has the sweetest dimples!

4.) Art Deco Dame from Pretty Little Things has perfect vintage eyebrows!

5.)Annie from Annie Pancake and the Time Machine has the face of a 1920's starlet.

Please post below if you take this challenge. I would love to read what you love about yourself and who in blogland you love!

Regardless of size, color, height, or personal style- you are all beautiful.
