This is actually from quite a few days ago, but I have been having issues with my internet. The dress is George. Blazer: Torrid-still available here. I have never been a huge fan of stripes, but I always have one or two striped pieces. Recently it was repeated to me that someone, another big girl, was talking crap that I am fat and don't I know that fat girls shouldn't wear stripes. She was referencing a picture from 4 years ago when I was 8 months pregnant with my daughter (featured below). At first I was irritated, but then I just had to laugh it off and consider the source. But it still gets me sometimes when I hear people come up with things like that. Wearing stripes or large or small prints does not make people look fatter; it is about the fit of your clothes and how YOU wear them.
