My Style Journal: All That Glitters…

HEY GIRL HEY! Happy PHAT Girl Friday!


Maui Bigelow of PHAT Girl Fresh   You know that I could go on and on about society’s fashion dos and don’ts for fat girls but since I could careless, I won’t! Why even speak on something that is both ignorant and prejudiced.  Yeah, I said it… There is a huge prejudice when It comes to fat women, fashion and beauty. However, just like Donald Trump as President (elect); I know it is there but I will not to acknowledge it!

Because I am always here to break a rule or two (or three or four) and encourage you to do the same; I wanted to share with you my latest love… Sequin! Yes honey, I am loving sequin right now and I know that I am not the only fat girl feeling this way. Hopefully all fat girls know and agree that every woman should add light and sparkle to whatever situation she enters and sequin allows you to do just that! Please dismiss the notion that we need to dress down or deflect, that is a lie! The goal is to go big, go bold or go home and if you fat girls are like me… HOME IS NOT AN OPTION!Maui Bigelow of PHAT Girl Fresh


Now, I am not talking about your grandma’s sequin fashion, I am talking about sequin done right! Dresses, pants, jumpsuits and even tee shirts can be found made of sequin. Although sequin was traditionally thought of as glam, we have found a way to dress it up or down based on the desired slay. Oh and did I mention the array of colors that sequin can be found in? Yes, the saying is true… “ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD” and the latest sequin trends prove just that!
