One of the many things  I love about the blog is being able to connect with our supporters. Last month Jill and I ( FITC and BCCA’s) produced a Fatshionraiser: Fat is a Feminist Issue along with The 519 . It was a night of amazing performances, speakers and dialogue . We raised much needed clothing for LGBTQ Newcomers and Refugees who access The 519’s Newcomer Settlement Services. Thank you to all our performers and all the wonderful people that attended and shared their personal stories on our soapbox OUR VOICES MATTER.

Before the event I freaked out because I didn’t know what to wear. Luckily I snagged this amazing Caramakoma skirt at a Toronto based plus size boutique. A few years ago I would have never hosted an event wearing white. I thought white clothing was only for white parties , P Diddy ,brides and Jill.

Jill wears white all the time and in the past I secretly hated it . Today you can’t get me out of this white skirt it’s  minimal, crisp and versatile. During the Fatshionraiser I felt so confident in my  little white skirt that I even did a little shake ( my version of burlesque) in front of an audience of 240 people. It’s amazing what can happen when you let go of your hang ups and rules

Here are few tips for how to wear an all white outfit

1.Find an all whiteout outfit and put it on your body

Your style should not be defined by your size!

    That all white look on you is super fabulous! Love the way you update it with dark shades, black clutch and patent peep-toe heeled black pumps. Simple and versatile! I also made a post on how to wear all white looks in the summer, check it:
