I found this great blog today and had to share it :D 

Refashionista is an amazing seamstress who refashions awful thrift-store finds into new clothes and some of these results are so amazing?? Check her out! :D

she is a goddess

So she’s taking plus sized clothing and making it into hipster wear for people who aren’t fat?  Ok. 

looks ten times better on her anyways  

that is besides the point. She’s taking resources from plus sized people who likely need it more than she does. If she was really any good at her refashioning, she could use clothing that was her size(or close to it) and make her hipster monstrosities that way. 

So what? Who gives a fuck? Shes taking something ugly that no one wants and making it into something cute for

Clearly it is the empathetic people who actually COMPREHEND how problematic and detrimental this to an already twice marginalized group of people who give a shit. How about you learn how to be a little more considerate of people who are less fortunate than you. 

Before I even got to the comments I was repulsed by the first image

So…. she took already limited fat clothing resources, from a thrift store, thus taking these fat clothes DIRECTLY from those who don’t have the money to pay in store prices, and who cannot afford to be choosy and buy only what they deem attractive (also clothing is incredibly subjective, and your idea of ugly clothes might be someone’s fav dress.. so fuck off with that)

and turns them into hipster outfits? 

wow… assholes gone wild 

for every 20-50 stores for thin people, there is maybe ONE for fat people

and those who cannot afford to pay 2-4 times the cost of thin clothes, for those fat clothes, ONLY have thrift shops, and now even THOSE limited resources aren’t safe (because you know damn well when a fat person finds something that fits, they are unlikely to give it away because we already have so few options)

fucking WOW.

also how DARE you call fat person clothes ugly, and imply that because they aren’t your idea of cute, that we don’t deserve them. my apologies that the fashion industry treats us like shit and offers us burlap sacks… SORRY TO OFFEND YOU WITH SOMETHING OUT OF OUR CONTROL

god i just want to puke all over these photos and everyone defending her

the thing that bothers me is the stance she continually makes in her “before” pictures. I just find it unnecessary and sort of mocking? 

❁ sister signs ❁


it is very important that people know their sister signs, because the compatibility between two tends to get disregarded when in actuality you are the yin to their yang— their other half! it is likely that you may have had a friend/friends or a crush/crushes that were your sister sign (or the sister sign of your moon sign).

Some people have told me that I shouldn’t be wearing bikinis. I even receive (pretty regularly) anon hate mail because of my photos I post. However, I will never stop. I’m not ashamed of my body, and even if someone believes that I should be, I won’t. Loving my body has brought me so much happiness, and I refuse to go back down that path of low self-esteem and poor body image.
