my week in objects (mostly).

February 8, 2019

1. these keys from my sister.

{for being there when i locked myself out of the house.}

2. this unmade bed.

{for providing a soft space to land in a week of more wintertime ailments.}

3. this watercolor rag.

{and all those splotches of pink.}

4. this string bag.

{and finding the perfect use for it.}

5. these potholders.

{for adding a much needed bit of texture to the kitchen.}

other things:

you can’t have it all.

plus-size street style.

co-opting body positivity.

black history books for bedtime.

disingenuous terms.

how to tidy up, cont.

think fashion week is only for one kind of body? 

a gyre-sized quantity of unknowns.

    Thank you for adding the link for the Black History Books For Bedtime. I am adding her suggestions to my list to pick up at the library ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved the links at the bottom. As a fat person, sometimes I feel pretty unwelcome (or at least discluded/unrepresented) in the minimalist/zero-waste/ethical fashion digital world. I appreciate you including pieces that speak to this or that celebrate fat beauty. I also really appreciated the co-opting piece, itโ€™s a good piece to sit with a spell.

    As a plus sized woman…who enjoys looking sharp…I can’t fathom any of those outfits.
