I'm pleased to announce that this is the first installment of a little something I call "Dame With Moxie". I wanted to create a forum to discuss and celebrate the fabulous style of gorgeous stacked women everywhere.
This week's DWM is Anita Riot who blogs at Thick Threads. What I love so much about Anita is how in-your-face she is with her fashion choices....which shouldn't come as a surprise when talking about someone named Anita Riot! I asked Ms. Riot to describe her fashion philosophy.
"I’m not really sure how to describe my style, it kind of goes with my mood; it's a way for me to express myself, it's art you can wear. I don’t really follow any sort of trends, or maybe I do and I just don’t know it yet. You can spill out your whole philosophy on one outfit. I think some people take style way too seriously when we should really all have a sense of humor about it and enjoy the freedom of it."
Why did you start writing a blog?
"I mainly just wanted to be part of the body positivity and plus size fashion revolution. I think it's safe to say that most women have had enough of the "Thin-Terror" that surrounded us. So along with so many other women I hope to make a change one day, and definitely go out in style while doing so. I just wanted to be part of the body positivity and plus size fashion revolution."
Anita's favorite shopping spots
"I don’t have a specific favorite shop, I shop where ever the wind takes me. I usually browse around until something interests me, and if I buy it then the day was a success! Discovering new stores and boutiques is kind of a hobby, otherwise things get too monotonous for me and that speaks against my short attention span!"
"Being plus sized means you do have to go back to certain stores that carry the sizes more often because sometimes you don’t find anything anywhere else. Which I don’t understand, Why should there be a separation of size and style in a store? Hm, but let’s hope that changes one day." From her mouth to the shopping goddess' ear.
