If you're on LiveJournal (and really, who isn't?) you should really check out Fatshionista. It's a wonderful community of vibrant, engaging women and the discussions go well beyond just chatting about clothes.
Note to self and also to you out there: make time to read the other Big Fat Carnival entries. Of course, I chose to submit the silliest post possible but there is a lesson to be learned, especially since it's almost skirt weather!
