You Oughta Know: Fatties In A Taxi
Fatties in a Taxi (FIAT): Well we decided that we spent so much time on social media watching, sharing, promoting people but never for anyone like us. All the most popular sections were filled with cookie cutter clones. There were no regular degular folks we could relate to who not only could dress but actually cared about the fat black community.
FIAT: Yes wow, looking back we definitely had a GLOW UP! With more confidence (and coins) came a whole new wardrobe and sense of self! But funny enough we rarely used to coordinate our outfits and were genuinely surprised when we’d link up and look like twins.Now we’re at a point where we just say, the hell with it, let’s twin up lol…
FIAT: Personal style means freedom! It means standing up to a world who doesn’t want to see me, who wants me to shrink and telling them NAH YOU WILD. I’M HERE TO SLAY. It means growth, confidence, and appreciation. Our personal style is forever evolving the more in love with our bodies we become. It’s a wild ride.
FIAT: We want the plus size community and fashion world to know that we’re here to stay!!! We are going to be your favorite shady FAT Heathers forever! There is a major gap in the plus size community of bloggers who don’t promote a certain look or an ideal shape.We’re here to fill that gap!We want to remind the world no matter your size, shape, or weight you deserve to take up space, be seen, heard, loved and respected! But most importantly we want to remind everyone that FAT BODIES ARE AMAZING! They are beautiful, strong, lovable, desirable, and plain ole SEXY AF!!
FIAT: Wow we never even thought we’d get this far. It’s amazing. We have so many new ideas for Fatties. We definitely want to head back to our roots and focus more on fat positive ways approach to fashion, dating, work and just life in general.We have always wanted to be a voice for the non mainstream “not acceptable” fat bodies. Life is coming at us really fast and as such we may be going outside of NYC so we’re excited about that as well. Honestly speaking though we haven’t really planned 5 years into the future let alone 5 months.The success of Fatties is still so new to us. We’re SHOOK lol. We never in a million years thought our little rants and raves could benefit anyone.
How much fun is this dynamic duo ?!
