Il est encore une fois le 16 du mois, alors versez-vous un bon verre de chardonnay, et procurez-vous une bonne baguette bien savoureuse, relaxez-vous et enjoy une autre édition fabuleuse du French Curves Challenge, crée par la splendide Vanoue de The Curvy and Curly Closet !
Le thème ce mois-ci: TOTAL LOOK BLANC !!!
Dans le défi du mois dernier, ne sachant pas ce que le thème de ce mois-ci serait, j’ai porté une magnifique robe blanche. Donc, quand le thème de ce mois a été annoncé, je me suis dit, oh oh !
En toute sincérité, Chastity Garner a vraiment frappé un coup de circuit avec cette collection ! Les vibes nautiques, les silhouettes décadents — elle a réussi, et tout ce que je peux dire c’est, OUIIIIIIIIII !!!
In last month’s challenge I wore a gorgeous white dress, not knowing what this month’s theme would be. So when this month’s theme was announced, I said, uh oh!
But then, a fashion miracle occurred!!! The GARNERSTYLE for Rebdolls capsule collection dropped, and all my worries just evaporated into thin air!

Seriously… If I could live out the rest of my days without wearing pants and not have anyone look sideways at me — I would. Also winter. Winter would suck, but whatever.
Honestly… I’m not even joking. I love being pantless. It’s a problem.
Now, technically this fantastic little number from the insanely cool Nadia Aboulhosn collection for Boohoo, is a dress… Just not much of one on me.
You see, when you factor in my 5’8″ish frame, long torso, and ample derrière, it’s kind of a triple threat — the ultimate weapon in the war on dress length (not really a thing, at least once you leave catholic high school and if plaid skirts count).
But I was determined to wear this little piece of perfection the way Nadia Aboulhosn and her adorably short torso had intended — AKA, in my case, pretty much show the entire neighbourhood the bottom of mah butt cheeks!!! Yeahhhhhh!!!

I’m 100% body positive. I love my fat peeps, my skinny peeps, my short, tall, black, white, and everything-in-between peeps! I truly believe that every body is beautiful in its own unique way.
I’ve been fat my whole life. Even when I was suffering from anorexia and bulimia, and had shed over 100 lbs. In my mind, I was still fat.
It took me a hell of a lot of hard work to learn that I was worth loving. The fact that I truly believe it is something I’m proud of, because that realization may come easily to some, but it didn’t for me.
When somebody tries to take that kind of self-love away from me, or from anyone — I get angry.

Today’s theme: BIKINI!!!
Last summer I wore my first bikini since my childhood. Since that day, I’ve promised myself to never be ashamed to wear one.
A few years ago, I never would have fathomed feeling this comfortable in public, showing off my tummy, my thighs, and my butt to the world, but yoohooooo!!!
Here I am!!!
Totally fabulous in a bikini!!!
Don’t forget, you can discover the contributions of all the other marvelous French Curvettes here!!!

Dear woman who tried to shame my body today,
There are a few things I’d like to say to you — a few things that I think you need to know; and I will lace my words with an excessive amount of photos of my glorious bod in a hot pink, see-through dress and bright red bikini, because I think it would do you good to see more of the body you decided to pick apart on social media today.
As a blogger, in one of my weekly contributions to another blog, I was asking followers to help me pick between three outfits that I chose for an upcoming date night with my husband. I think I looked really cute in all of them, for the record — and, sometimes a girl just wants a little feedback!
I answered you so politely when you criticized body. I told you that “I love my belly, my big butt, and my cellulite, as does my hubby! They’re part of me — no need to hide them! 😊 It’s not about looking thinner. The beauty of body acceptance is learning to love our flaws! ❤️”
You’re welcome to disagree with my view points and clothing choices all you want, but never once did I mention anything about your thoughts on my outfits. I also didn’t get upset… In fact, I think I gave a pretty polite and friendly response that spoke only of how I wasn’t ashamed of my body parts that you seemed to feel weren’t attractive.
You, a plus size woman yourself, stated that you were entitled to your opinion, then proceeded to tell me that loving my body was a copout because I am too lazy to try to better myself and my health. (Really, you said it!)
When I, again very politely, explained that I am in very good health, and wished you would realize that your comment was judgemental and uncalled for, you said that I must not be as secure as I claim to be because I was being defensive and over-sensitive.
You went on to say that that you had balls, and stood by your opinion… And that I shouldn’t be a blogger if I didn’t like it — somehow believing that it is your right to police my body, call me names, be blatantly rude, and that, because I have a blog, I’m not supposed to call you on it.
Others jumped to my defence, but you attacked them too, and laughed at the whole situation, referring to a comment I had posted for someone else, explaining to them how taking back the word ‘fat’ had empowered me.
I politely excused myself from the conversation, stating that your perseverance was admirable, that you had so much potential, and I wished you could have used it to uplift your fellow women rather than tear them down.
Soon after, your comment was removed. Obviously nobody was in agreement with your insults disguised as opinions, and false sense of entitlement… So, my apologies if the events may seem a little out of sequence, because again, your comment was deleted, which took all of your, my, and everyone else’s carefully crafted rebuttals with it, leaving me with only my tear-filled (sarcasm, in case you didn’t pick up on that) memories to refer to. You are entitled to your opinion, let’s just get that out of the way so you don’t have to say it again, but I will not let you believe, when you attack my body and character then accuse me of being insecure when I respond, that I can’t see right through your smug facade, to a woman who is filled with self-doubt, insecurity, envy and fear.
I will also not allow you make me love myself any less than I did before reading your enlightening comments — in fact, they’ve made me love myself more! You see, when you show your true colours, and they’re dim, grey and muddy, they make mine shine much brighter.
What you thought would stop me really just propelled me forward, and reaffirmed how important my blogging truly is.
So what I’m really saying here, is thank you. Thank you for making me feel even more beautiful, secure, and important today.
I know your intention was to make yourself feel better by trying to bring me down, so I’m sorry (not sorry) that I couldn’t help, but I would gladly love to offer you a compliment if you ever decide to actually post a profile picture of yourself one day. I’m sure you have all kinds of beauty that you just don’t see when you look in the mirror.
And lastly, even though your attempts at hurting me failed miserably, I hope you come to understand that not everyone is as strong and confident as me. Not everyone will be able to take something wonderfully positive away from the experience of having a person try to publicly humiliate them; and not everyone will understand that your attempts at trashing their self-esteem, are really just projections of your own insecurities.
