Normal Land

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Everytime I'd go shopping with someone, I would have to go to the Plus Size section. Or, in some polite stores - the "Woman's" section. As if to say we're not fat, we're "womanly." Bull.

Anyway, we'd always have to part ways. I'd say, "Well, I have to go to My Land, so I'll see ya later," and I'd be off to the Plus Size section to sift through the racks of clothes that you couldn't even bribe me to purchase. Someone on the Global Clothing Board of Directors proposed: "I know what we'll do. When we make Plus Size clothes, we'll make everything short-sleeved, one-colored, boxy, high-waisted, and elastic. No designs, no flattering cuts, no embellishments. We don't have the budget, we're spending all the money we have just on the fabric to COVER their bodies. We don't have anything left to add."

This used to make me really angry. I used to say, "One day I am going to be a fashion designer for overweight women."

And then I reazlized: Oh yeah! We're not SUPPOSED to be obese! Why should there be incentives to be? Keep making 'em ugly, Sag Harbor and White Stag!!!

And my woes were finally put to rest... I bought an ADORABLE shirt in "Normal Land" as I call it!!! It's an XL and it's Xtra Cute.
