rubber boots? [Oct. 16th, 2007|03:26 pm]
Fat Amazons

Fatazons! I'm wondering if anyone out there knows where the rubber boots are. I live in Vancouver and am in need of a decent pair of rain boots, but I'm having an impossible time. There's an abundance of utilitarian, ubiquitous black boots up for grabs, but I'm looking for the girlie ones with interesting patterns and designs. Does such a thing exist in a size 12 or higher?

Intro [Aug. 11th, 2007|01:57 pm]
Fat Amazons

I'm a 44 year old single mom, 5' 10", size 11 feet, about a 16-18 at the moment. Somehow, I find it easier to accept my fatness than my overall size and big-bonedness.  On the plus side, I can open any jar you can throw at me.  I love the idea of this community. Scuse the sweaty face and blue bra strapsCollapse )

A member of Fatshionista just referred me to this. HI PEOPLE! I'm Xixi. I live in Vancouver Canada. I'm Chinese, 6'0, has size 11 feet, 210 lbs, and wear a size 15-18, depending on how bloated I feel that particular day. :)

It's time... [Sep. 15th, 2006|01:19 pm]

Okay, fatazons, I think it's finally time.... for me to buy a skirt. I own a dress (possibly two, actually) but I never wear them. except for the dress-up school-girl skirt in my icon picture there; I haven't worn any kind of dress or skirt since before my son was born. (he'll be six next month-- sad but true)

So I need some advice. short or long? what kind of material? If left to my own devices; I would wear nothing but jeans, t-shirts, and birkenstocks. my ex picked me up a really cute shirt the other day (here) and I kind of thought it would look nice with a skirt. Thoughts? Opinions? Help!

Eek! [Sep. 14th, 2006|12:26 pm]

I'm less than a year away from finishing my undergrad degree and job-hunting is looming on the horizon. In particular, I will be going to a career fair in three weeks and I have nothing to wear. (Grad school is Plan A, but I'll definitely get interview practice out of the whole experience and make my parents happy.) I'll be interviewing for finance-ish jobs, so full-out business attire is a must. Has anyone seen any nice suits floating around on the internets? I'm tall (5'11") and pear-shaped (16 on top, 22 on bottom), which makes life much more exciting. Also...heels or flats?

Introducing... (drumroll, please) Question of the week! [Sep. 10th, 2006|07:17 pm]
Fat Amazons


Total response was in favour of switching from "question of the day" to "question of the week". Soo-- I figured posting it Sunday night was a good idea. Other awesome ideas presented were to switch off the question-asker every week, so anyone who wants to take it next week; please say so. Also, question asker must answer-- I was being pretty bad about that. I promise not to neglect it this week, nor any other week the question may be in my hands. Random questions still fine; fatazon-themed questions obviously awesome. anything else?
okay, so for this week, i figured i'd give something hefty but fun and kind of random, so:
This week's question: brought to you By Bernard Pivot via James Lipton via my couch potatoey-ness this weekend--
* 1. What is your favorite word?
* 2. What is your least favorite word?
* 3. What turns you on?
* 4. What turns you off?
* 5. What is your favorite curse word?
* 6. What sound or noise do you love?
* 7. What sound or noise do you hate?
* 8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
* 9. What profession would you not like to do?
* 10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

after a week.... [Sep. 8th, 2006|11:51 am]
Fat Amazons


the consensus was to re-evaluate "question of the day" after a week. so here we are.
Poll #816601 Question of the Day: Question of the Day.

We've given it a go for another week; what are our thoughts on it now?

Keep it!
Kill it!
Switch to "Question of the Week" instead of "Question of the Day"
Hand it off to someone who comes up with better questions (or at least switch it up once a week)
Try another week as is just to be sure?
