Tall Wide Calf Boots (++ good for walking!)
I'm searching for some real world reviews of fat girl boots. As life long fatty, I am astonished and pleased at the amount of options we have this season, but I'm more than a little overwhelmed. I'm hoping that y'all have some insights you can toss my way.

I'm looking for a pair of tall (ideally above the knee, but I'm open), black, versatile boots that I can wear all winter, but particularly during a Christmas vacation I'm taking to Paris. When I imagine these boots in my head, they are sleek and stylish enough that they can be dressed up or dressed down. Just trendy enough while still being classic.

Here's the real caveat: these boots need to be made for walking. Well, walking with high arches specifically. I want to not end my vacation days nursing battered hooves, so I'm curious which boots you all can recommend as well made and good for support. I know I can always toss a orthodic insert into my shoe like the lady I am, but I'd like to start with a good foundation.

So, show me your boots! And please share your thoughts. I know I can't be the only one in search of some good walkin' boots. 

Has anyone flown Southwest Airlines this past year?
Particularly anyone size 24+, did you fit into the seat, seatbelts? I haven't flown in 4 years so I'm a little nervous

Also, my friend booked the tickets and it was one of those specials, so I'm assuming it's pick your own seat. Is it checkin 24hrs ahead online, or early checkin in person that gets to board first?

LB jeans
red shoe
Has anyone bought jeans from Lane Bryant recently?
Do they still stretch out after wearing a bit?
I just ordered a pair that are a wee bit tight, but if they are going to stretch I'll keep them.

Florence (Italy) shopping recommendations
Hello lovely people,

I'm going to be spending the weekend in Florence (Italy) and was wondering if anyone had shopping recommendations on the ground. Fatshion of course, but also accessories, markets, anything really!

Thanks :)

exersize tips
high times
I am looking to get more active, the only trouble is I'm not too sure how to start. I don't have access to a gym, and right now I can't do anything that causes my blood pressure to go up due to some neurological stuff. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Fantastic jammies?
Hi, fats! I have two events in the new year that will require wearing pyjamas in public, so I'm starting my search now. I wear 26/28, and am in Canada, though I travel to the US fairly often. I'm looking for something in the flannel pj/onesie kind of area, rather than sexy nightgown/lingerie. Any ideas? Bonus points for geek themes.

looking for plus sized raingear
One of the expectations of my new job turns out to be that I am regularly outside for quite some time in torrential rain.

Any recommendations on where to get truly waterproof raingear in plus sizes? I am in need of both rainpants and a (hopefully somewhat longish) rain jacket. (Probably a 22 or so in pants. At least 24 to 26 in the jacket, or maybe a bit bigger so I can layer under it in super cold weather.) Ideally the pants at least would be available in lengths for super short people, as I am under 5' tall and suspect it is not actually possible to effectively hem waterproof garments. I looked around a bunch on line with no success so far, but I am hoping what I need does actually exist somewhere.

ton of ootds!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to share with you all a few ootds over the past few months. I wore a huge variety of different things and I'd love to know which look is your favourite? <3

Finally had the chance to go swimming and wear my asos curve fatkini! You can read the rest of this post/check out more photos here.
