I’ve been working on a massive audit in my day job that is frying my brain (all those numbers!!) so let’s have a little fun tonight and look at some fabulous and fat friendly things that we might like for Christmas. Who knows, we might get some gift ideas for other fab fatties in our lives too.
Let’s start with something that I’ve already ordered for myself, but I think EVERY fab fatty needs one of these in preparation for the new year.
Yes, it’s Marilyn Wann’s 2012 Fat!So? Dayplanner!
It’s a mere $14 (plus shipping) and all proceeds will go to building the Weight Diversity Action Lounge, a community center for fun, food, fitness, and fabulousness somewhere in Oakland, California. I mean… it’s Marilyn Wann! Plus it’s chock full of other contributors, inspiration, tips and art… including yours truly!
How about this adorable Lovedrobe Teal Heart Print Dress from Evans?
I love anything in chocolatey browns with teal, and a heart motif is one of my favourites.
Then there’s this pretty butterfly print top also from Evans.
And this GORGEOUS floral top, again from Evans.
How about a fat positive colouring book? I want at least three copies of Fat Ladies in Spaaaaace: a body-positive coloring book!
How awesome is that? Colouring in fat ladies. IN SPACE!
Then of course, what fab fatty wouldn’t want a copy of Hanne Blank‘s “Big Big Love”?
(Can you guess that my Amazon wish list is pretty long?)
How about Substantia Jones’ 2012 Adipositivity Calendar?
The Adipositivity Project has been pivotal in my journey to fat positivity and strong self esteem.
More clothes! I long for beautiful dresses from eShakti, these are my favourites (click on the images to go to the page on eShakti):
The Artist's Wife Dress
Singing In The Rain Dress
Dzilla Brass Rings Dress
The Birds Who Gossip Dress
Aren’t they all gorgeous?? I would LIVE in dresses like these if I could.
How about some amazing shoes? I dream of Fluevog shoes. They are the absolute pinnacle of shoe heaven for me, and they’re very fat friendly, with their wider fittings and excellent craftsmanship. How about this selection (again, click the images to go to the website):
Splendid in Stripes
Caspian in Black and Off-White
Zaza in Red, Pink and Grey
I think we need to wind up with some accessories. Let me see:
How about an ice-cream charm, from Georgina at Cupcake’s Clothes, and her cute label DollyMixx:
I love the radical defiance of wearing food accessories as a fat woman. Fat women are policed about food all the time, so let’s chant Fuck Tha Police by wearing food as accessories!
What about a cupcake ring? This one is from Etsy store Dolly-Tastic:
And while we’re on Dolly-Tastic, I absolutely adore this Hello Kitty charm bracelet:
Another one of my favourite sources for accessories is Sick for Cute (who have a plus-size range too), and I think I really, really need these whale socks:
Whale socks on a fat woman! I love it!
And finally, I just spotted this bag and completely fell in love.
How’s that for a Christmas List? Of course, there are loads of other wonderful goodies out there that would also be a delight to find under my Christmas tree, but these are some of the things I’m drooling over currently.
What about you? What fat-friendly goodies would you love to find in your Christmas stocking? Dream big in the comments Heffalumpies!
