My world was made better all by myself 世界因為自己而變得豐富

I studied in the local school when I was young, from primary to secondary (I am a high school drop out!). When I was in high school, 5’4 at 180lbs, most of my school friends and mates always make fun of my weight and make it the “subject daily”, just like any high school i guess. Although I wasn’t happy about it, somehow I don’t mind that much thinking, well they are speaking the truth, I am fat! I have always been single and think it must be because I am fat and no other reasons. ( living in HK you have to be a size 4 to not be called fat) I know I am not ugly and I am a fun-loving girl with many guy friends. However, I have never had a proper childhood or teenage life where at least there will be some teenage romance for me. The closest thing would be being approached by pervy old men in the street!:S After all these years of feeling unattractive and being proven by having no one to date or love, it’s easy to feel that I am not worthy, and since, I have developed very low self esteem, and

Top 10 Plus size sportswear / activewear

In my last post, I talked about Sportluxe – high fashion workout gear for straight size and some XLs for inbetweenies, therefore I have not focused on plus size brands. There are now many brands out there available for plus size women and I need to have a separate post just for it 🙂 Personally I have not tried any of these brands fit, because my heart is on the sportluxe brands (now I am working towards being able to squeez into them)! I want to point out that, appearance of sportswear is as important as its function, it has to be both! So, invest in some higher quality pieces. Especially nowadays we have more options as ever before, of course you want to choose the best among all that last long, functional and makes you look good. Material is really important, we don’t have the same body size or shape as slim women and there are many things in plus size activewear design that needs to pay more attention to. For example, the inner thigh area, most of us has chub rub because of our thick thighs, therefore the fabric use on the jogging pants need more resistant than

Sport Luxe Activewear

80s SKI FASHION Back in the late 80s, early 90s, activewear became the trend of the era, but then fashion changes and the once popular baggy silhouette were no longer “cool” so we moved on to newer things. However, since commercial fashion hasn’t come up with any new trends in the past decade, history have been just reinventing from the olds, and so fashion bounds to make its comebacks. Fashion shoot from Vogue 2012 Fashionable Sportswear is one of the most prominent trends in recent years that has derived and evolved from the 80s/90s sport trend; remember Tommy jeans, polo shirts and leg warmers, they were not costumes but real clothing trends once! As we entered a new generation of fashion, certain styles evolved and became new categories.  Sport Luxe has been slowly coming to shape and since built up its following due to the latest craze/crave of fitness/healthier lifestyle (so long sugar and junk food), it’s now a staple category and also one of the most profitable line for many brands.    I was first introduced to sportluxe by early player Stella McCartney when she launched her crossover with Adidas in 2004. Although Honor mention goes to Dirk Bikkembergs

Curvasians – Danyl from the Philippines

If you have lived in Asia, you have probably encounter comments that target your body size instead of who you are, and more than once! The first “greeting” from people around us are usually comments about our appearance even they mean no harm. It goes like this, “Hey you have lost weight, prettier now!” “Hey your butt looks bigger than last time I saw you! Watch your diet!” We as individuals, are not usually being praised for our personalities or the knowledge and contribution one holds, but reduced to how many pounds we weight or how pretty we are. I believe women are more than that, that we do not necessarily have to survive using our beauty as what the society deem to believe in nowadays. In general, most people understand that Asian culture is very different than the west when it comes to “beauty standard”, it is even more conservative comparing to the west. Even in the eyes of the westerns, their perception of “oriental beauty” seems to be reference like Susie wong, or Lucy Liu or whoever they know that is asian, and they are slender dark hair females. But If you have been to Asia you will

Plus size fashion promotes obesity? The fact is they are not related.

In the adult world, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and obviously you cannot change other peoples mind in a day or that telling you what i think is “better” than what you think will ever work, and it goes both ways. Afterall, my blog is about my passion for fashion and also to help women gain their confidence from within. They can co-exist but also are independent topics of one’s insterest. Body Diversity   There are always much noise angling on body images and related campaigns simply because we focus so much on visual stimulants nowadays. While I understand hearing different voices can help improve a society or culture, I also feel that many are only just using the exposure to promote their own ideas by bashing on others. I am definitely not trying to wow anybody with explicit images or very outspoken languages to creat that XYZ factor for it to go viral, which is very much the case in the gigantic internet atmosphere.   Source: I chant on my own ideas of course, otherwise I wouldn’t blog, by writing things I have feelings towards and sharing my opinions, it’s a way to express myself.
