Anonymous asked: I saw your personal post on your life/privilege conflicts and It's beautiful that you recognize it. I understand the sadness you feel when you think of those who are having a rough time while you try to build yourself. A few things I think is important to do for the sake of "leveling the playing field" a little more (for lack of better words) is buying outside of your own community/neighborhood, exposing children to others (unlike their lives) frequently, and spreading awareness of the imbalace

min-xy asked: You have such a good attitude about your post about Lilly's dresses and body types! I'm a plus size woman (LP doesn't stock my size) and a body image activist, but I love preppy/classic style and I love to see people who are on the right page about being able to wear what you want, no matter who you are... And I'm hoping Lilly will start stocking extended sizes in the future!!! I want to buy a few cute dresses!!
Thanks for your words of support! I would LOVE to see Lilly start offering sizes 16-22. So many if her patterns lend themselves to extended sizing, and many of the prints are on a scale that would be incredibly flattering.
Seriously find it a bit humorous that my most controversial post to date was “A Lilly for Every Shape.” It’s FASHION! Don’t take it so seriously.
My intention was to offer encouragement and guidance to women who want to wear Lilly but haven’t taken the plunge because they believed that the styles only suit a specific size/shape/body type/whatever. (Unfortunately, Lilly has yet to venture into extended sizing. Hopefully, soon more retailers and designers will acknowledge that this market exists and is desperately underserved).
I NEVER intended my post to be taken as hard and fast rules. I passionately believe women should wear what makes them feel beautiful, regardless of what some fashion guide says they should or should not wear. However, a good percentage of women don’t know where to begin in this process, pick a piece of clothing at random, try it on, get discouraged, and consequently get stuck in an fashion rut. Guidelines are a good place to begin in order to avoid this cycle.
