Big Gurl with the Tattoo by Brockelle Nelson
Today we're all on diets...trying to impress the world; while mentally struggling with ourselves to be something that we know we are NOT....Skinny! We want to look like the models in VOGUE Magazine, but at what cost? Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents, and 95% of those who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 & 25. That size two model is an illusion created by Photoshop and starvation, so why are we hating ourselves to create an image that isn't even real? We all cannot be a size two, so if your a big girl get that tattoo, dress fly, and love yourself because who else will?
Fashion is not skinny, fashion is style paired with impeccable garments!
Brockelle says that, "Fat Women are what we are, daring and fat. There's nothing in wrong in being you and in the mean time celebrating your beauty. Plus Size Fashion isn't simply "clothes for big girls", it's our poetry, it's our humanity, it's here to say "yes we're here too, deal with it." Simply, it's all of that and a truck of scales."
Things are beautiful if you love them. So, girls embrace what you were blessed with; show off your hips, your breast & your thighs. Being VOGUE has no measurement.
"The greatest crime of a fat woman is that she dares to take up space
so no need to be less of what i am there's not a morsel left on my plate"
-- Brockelle Nelson
