Not 24 hours after I debuted the Tracy Turnblad roach dress homage (see image, ghurl!) with, yes, the matching nails (see nail blog asap) as the co-host of the Second Helpings Fatinee extravaganza in SF that I was out on the town for another fat positive soiree with one of my main femmes Kitty. This time our love of all things Fat High Society took us south of San Francisco to the Curvy Girls Rock Fashion Show where we got the VIP treatment from host and Curvy Girl Lingerie mastermind, Chrystal Bougon.
We talked to some press, got some ridiculously sexy goody bags from Lelo and had some soft cheeses, chicken skewers, chocolate martinis, cake and crudites. Ghurl love her some crudites.
Then the show started!
After mingling and eating more cake bites I made a new friend named Shae!
And then Kitty & I took to the runway OF COURSE.
Ok ok. Me and Shae took a #bitchface photo I was gonna share with you but then I realized that would be serious emotional blog infidelity so here it is.
Whew, ghurl, time for me to go to Chevy's and get a strawberry daiquiri to go so I can cuddle up with my boo and try the new stuff I got in my goody bag!

I want to say that I think your views and shop support in the cause of fat shaming. Love the pictures and the confidence in the models. Keep doing what you are doing and making a stand

Please stop using the word curvy to refer to fat.
