During the last few days the story about Karl Lagerfeld's view on Adele's body has been in all the media. Being "too fat" myself I have to respond.
Some years ago I went to the doctor for an overall checkup and had various tests done. The conclusion was that I'm in excellent health (not counting the injury to my knee and my feet). I asked the doctor how I could be healthy since I'm overweight. The answer was that I'm not obese and we're not all built to be stick thin. So Yes, it is possible to be perfectly healthy and "fat"!
I think Adele looks very healthy - also in comparison to the much thinner Mr. Lagerfeld who claims to be her biggest fan.
It isn't the first time Mr. Lagerfeld has revealed his negative view on the female body, calling Heidi Klum fat too!!! I'm just wondering - when did he ever enjoy a woman's body? To me it seems that the more boyish the better is his preference?
Apparently there aren't enough underweight models with a masculine body so now we are seing male models showing women's clothes on the catwalk. I'm wondering if it will sell more clothes? And it is hard enough as it is finding well fitting clothes in my size without having to be ashamed of being born as a woman.
Enough words on that old scarecrow! During the week it has been very cold again. Luckily I didn't throw out my Svoboda jeans that are too big. Now I could wear them with thick tights underneath and keep (almost) warm. This is a piece of valuable advice for everyone living in cold climates: Keep a few pairs of trousers that are too big!
The neckline on the top has always been annoying since it is too wide and deep. It falls of my shoulders and shows my bra. Until last month when I got my hands on a packet of fashion tape. Below is a photo of the top without the tape.
Not even the brooch could fix the neckline. Only on delicate fabrics would I choose another solution than fashion tape. It was easy to apply and lasted the whole day.
My new dress with my old boots and my black coat. I'm not a fan of black so I'm looking for a new coat. Maybe the next one should be shorter?
Yesterday's outfit, like all the others, is displaying my most feminine feature - my tits - because I'm proud of them. There is no way Mr. Lagerfeld or any other fashion designer is going to make me ashamed of being a woman!
