I love vintage has got a real cool thing going on in December : ‘we love hips’! During 14-23 December get your hips measured in their store at Prinsengracht 201 in Amsterdam, in exchange for a discount. The larger the size of your hips, the more discount you will receive on your purchase! And if your hips are less than 90 cm, you will get a bar of chocolate! Don’t you think this is funny? Embrace your curves! And you should know, some dresses go up to XXL, but on request even 3XL can be produced! And I can only support this campaign: embrace your hips!
Bianca Toeps, a photographer who knows how to make pictures of inbetweenie models! A photographer who makes great pictures with also regular sizes, but in her blog she created an article: SHOUTOUT TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL PLUS-SIZE MODELS! And I can only agree with her. We have tried to plan a meeting already about 100 times. But we are definitely going to work together! A good photographer can make great pictures of models in any size, that’s my opinion!
Such a strong and personal message from one of my favorite and unique models, Christina Marie Boudreau (size 42 EU, 12 US), from Heffner Management on Facebook:
“At twelve years old I believed the lies of the media. Which told me that if I were thin, then I would be accepted, popular, loved, beautiful, and valued. After 7 years of eating disorders, I have seen girls at 80 pounds with tubes in their arms, who don’t feel beautiful or valued. In addition I have also seen curvy confident women who are free because they have trained their minds and hearts to love themselves despite societies standards of beauty. Take it from me girls, you CAN be accepted, loved or valued at any size. BUT, you cannot expect others to love you, if you haven’t first learned to love yourself.”

Coming back to the article about Zara’s size problem. ABC news made an item saying that America is too fat for Zara.
Alissa Wilson from stylishcurves.net and Shainna Tucker from A thick girls closet, both a size 48 EU (18 US) show in this video they won’t fit in Zara’s clothes. Shainna: “I love their handbags and shoes. I still have a place in my heart, somewhere for Zara”.
See below some reactions of people, after putting this item on my Stylehasnosize Facebook page.
