MY STYLE: Fashion and Fat Arms

I know this is a weird title for an Outfit of the Day (#OOTD) post but I thought I'd address some stuff as it pertains to fashion and fatness. A couple of months ago I posted the look I wore for the Nashville Symphony Ball. As always, I post my looks on my instagram and wait for the likes and comments to roll in. Usually, my comments thread is pretty positive. But as the popularity grows, I see new followers and new commentary. On this day, when I posted my symphony story, someone made a snide comment about my fat arms. w

Initially, I was a bit shocked. Like I said, I hadn't received negative comments on my photos. That day was a different day. After my initial shock, I thought about it - people are so used to plus-size women covering up. EVEN in this day of plus-size model Tess Holiday, getting national and international modeling jobs, people still feel 'some kinda way' about big women being okay with her big-ness. Truthfully, I used to feel the same way . . .

If you would have asked me eight years ago if I'd still be blogging, I don't know what my answer would have been. Seriously, I started blogging just to answer people's questions, share my views on fashion, and talk about trends. Like, I didn't have an agenda but I knew I liked writing and I liked clothes. Check out my first post, I had a couple goals, but you know . . . life.

After a while, I got my stride. I noticed that people loved when I talked about celebrity style, Nashville boutiques, and fashion trends. So, I stuck to my lane. Then, enters social media. When I started Fab Glance, Instagram didn't exist, twitter was a baby, and MySpace was the place to be. When social media really popped off, it changed the face of the blogger. Bloggers became celebrities and readers started liking photos way more than reading. It was hard in these streets for a blogger and I lost faith.
