There’s nothing Fat Girl Food Squad loves more than a fierce babe. Especially one who is loud about Living Large. This week for Lookin’ Good Girl we wanted to bring to your attention some of the fine females who have, possibly unknowingly and even unwittingly, helped us along the way. It started in the quiet corners of places like DiaryLand and LiveJournal but now our heros and de facto leaders are out. Never SIF’s (Secret Internet Fatties), always wise, and always amped to write about what’s good, and juicy. I’ve gotten a few emails over the years from people asking that First Day of Grade One question: “Will you be my friend?” Theses individuals are some I strongly want to send such an email to one day. I guess this post is an open letter then…
I first found Erin as Zero Girl on Tumblr and quickly found myself either heart-ing or reblogging 99% of the items Erin was reblogging. Then I took a minute (or a few hours) to dig deeper into the original content showing up their. Found my way to Erin’s proper bloging efforts at Zero Style and was in love. Sworn hater of the term “flattering” and perpetually over-dressed, this women is holding it down in Cleveland. Working as a Brand Manager and PR Whip for Re/Dress, a fat shopper’s wet-dream destination for vintage finds in the Plus Sizes, Erin has what looks to us like a dreamy job.
Ready to take a master class in how to be a Fat Bitch? Rachele knows a thing or two about it and she’s putting it up online for all of you, so you better start taking notes. Rachele does all sorts of awesome-beyond-words things like this. Take the Fat Babe Project. Our own Hamilton Squad Leader, Carly has a baller illustration done by Rachele in the Fat Babe Project! She’s on the top of the page, guys! Lest we forget about the Chub Rub Book Club.
This is a majestic person. Truly. Okay, I know it’s her wife who is named Majestic, but they both are, okay? Together they are Majesstica, and way way way beyond having the most fat, femme and fun looking wedding I have ever seen, they are good people to seek answers from. That’s what Heavy Petting is all about. Answers to your questions about all things sex, love and relationships. Jessica is in the process of emigrating to Canada and we’ll be a better country for having her.
There’s something so heavenly and bewitching about Amarina. The local girl of our list, she’s a plus-size fashion & jewelry designer here in Toronto. About ten years ago, Amarina took up an apprenticeship with a jewelry designer and came out with a line of plus-sized embellishments. Today there’s Usra Major +, wicked cool fashions for fat babes. Maybe it’s that our style is so matched and she’s forever en pointe, but she can do no wrong my eyes. Though I came across Ursa Major and Amarina very recently sometimes (trying very hard not to be hyperbolic) it’s like having found a shooting star.
We’re curious; Who do you look to online?
