Dear Oprah,

I'm confused! You feature a "300 pound" woman on your show who's father says she's not ok the way she is. When she loses weight through gastric bypass surgery and comes back on your show, she earns a standing ovation and the love of her father. You never once let this woman know that she's beautiful, lovable and deserving of love before her weight loss. The following day after the weight loss show, you feature Crystal, a size 12 "plus-size" model who declares on your show that every woman should be represented in the fashion industry. You wholeheartedly agreed. I don't believe you. What I think you might have meant is that any woman who is a size 2 to a size 14 should be represented. You say that "size-ism" is the last acceptable form of discrimination. Oprah! Why perpetuate that discrimination when you have the power to change it. You challenge so many things but refuse to celebrate ALL women - as they are - right now!

I Love Clothes

I love clothes.
I want the clothes I see other girls wearing, you know, smaller girls. I don’t want clothes to cover me up and make me disappear. Sometimes I want to show off my best assets too. I want the clothes that I see in the magazines, or on T.V. or some really confident beautiful woman on the street. I want clothes that fit me well and are soft or silky and tight in all the right places. I want clothes that skim my curves and help me feel at ease in my body. I want fun easy trendy clothes. I want classic pieces that I will treasure and wear for years because they never wear out or go out of style. I want clothes that I can pick up off of my bedroom floor, give a good shake and wear again. I want clothes that other people covet. I want clothes that go with shoes I love. I love shoes.
I want clothes that fit me!
Don’t you love clothes?
I love clothes.
