Fascinatingly, there are many people out there who do not understand the concept of clothing. According to the Webster Dictionary, clothing is defined as “garments in general.” You put on clothes in order to clothe yourself, as is customary in polite society. And yet, there are always lists of items “fat girls can’t wear” (I would link, but I don’t want to give them the clicks and anybody who really wants to can Google ‘em). Strangely, these grumpy disgruntled jerks expert fashion critics do not seem to understand that plus size women can, indeed, wear these items in order to clothe themselves–and when styled well, as with any outfit, they will look fantastic.

God, I love Etsy. Etsy is life, guys. If you want to express yourself through your possessions but don’t have the skill to make them on your own, Etsy WILL have what you need.

Personally, I’ve gotten way into the swing of “NOPE” lately. I NOPE on social media, I NOPE to catcallers (because that’s really the bottom line, isn’t it?), I NOPE in my articles, I NOPE on my blog, I NOPE to trolls and hate mail, I NOPE when I just don’t friggin’ feel like doin’ stuff. The only thing left is to NOPE my appearance and NOPE my home.
Cue Etsy! Now you can have NOPE with you all the time. You might not even need to say it out loud.
The New York Attorney General’s office announced this week it has found “loss prevention officers” at Macy’s department store to have followed Black and Latino customers more often than white patrons. In response to these findings, Macy’s has agreed to a pay a $650,000 settlement, hire an independent monitor, and release an anti-racial profiling memorandum to employees, among other responses. (It is perhaps too soon to say “reforms.”)
This fall, both Macy’s at Herald Square and the upscale department store Barney’s in New York City drew attention after several Black customers were detained by police and accused of stealing items which they had rightfully purchased. Macy’s most high-profile incident was actor Robert Brown from the TV show “Treme” and the movie “Finding Forrester,” who was detained after making an expensive purchase at the store, then frisked, accused of holding fake ID, and told he didn’t have enough money to buy the pricey item.
