Happy New Year from my cozy family to yours ❤️ I’m already beyond excited for what 2023 will hold. New chapters, life hacks, and adventures await. Starting with finally moving into a rental house in a couple weeks with a backyard, office space, and the perfect table for dinner parties. Our little family is ready for some settle down energy; don’t worry, still firmly in Houston 😊 Although wherever my three girls are is home, my Pinterest boards are overflowing with painting inspiration and maximalism organization ideas 💁♀️ Here’s to a year of colorful and joyful growth 🥂 Also @coham.co thanks for capturing all the love we’ve built in our very first apartment together ❤️❤️
Exactly how I describe my work in fashion. And what I tell employers about myself in interviews. And how I landed @bethanyannbullock 😎 #biggay #fatgirl #queerart #queerfashion #inclusivefashion #inclusivedesign @hilaryduff @suttonlenore @debimazar
She was mad I was knitting and not petting her 🤷♀️
When I was a kid, I told people I was going to be a mermaid or a fashion designer when I grew up. 20-ish years later, and my first design will be walking the runway at @mfahouston with @hccfashionschool in two weeks. (And this adorable picture of me “working” is on the ticket page for this event 💁♀️) I hope Baby Alex sees how cool and not boring she grew up to be. Retirement investing marketer by day, fashion designer by night. Queer, fat, and freaking adorable. Surrounded by the most incredible group of people who love and support her. The most wonderful @bethanyannbullock who helps her grow, pursue her dreams, and experience happiness in a way she never dreamed of. Self-aware, charismatic, brave, beautiful, and so much more than her body, her grades, or her self-doubt. And an expert at candid photos 🤣🤣🤣 #fatsewing #fashiondesignstudent #fatfashion #childhooddreams
I didn’t think I could live as much life as I have in the past three years with you. Driving across the country multiple times, changing our entire careers, experiencing some of the worst trauma and homophobia together, laughing until I can’t breathe because I don’t understand street names, moving in together on Valentine’s day to a week of no power or water, building the coolest wardrobe and apartment together, a whole-ass pandemic. @bethanyannbullock, I had no idea what was yet to come when I sat down and split a pizza with you three years ago. But I knew you were going to change my life, and I wouldn’t change a damn thing. Except maybe packing too much for the cruise. Happy three years lady love ❤️ I can’t even imagine the amazing adventures waiting for us!
If it doesn’t come in your size, just pretend it does 🤔 @moschino I am ready for this is a 26, thanks boo ❤️
Two years ago to the minute, I was sitting at @axelradhouston on my very first date ever with a woman. I was talking too fast, sweating more than I had ever sweat before (and I sweat a lot), and fidgeting hardcore on the picnic table bench. She instantly felt like my best friend, and I knew I was in trouble the second she smiled and I lost my breath. I got so nervous at the end of the date, I really uncomfortably asked if she was into a girl kissing her. So we made out in her car like all the teenage dreams I had in high school. And now two years later, we’re currently sitting on our couch, in our beautiful shared apartment, celebrating one of our two shared dog’s 1st birthday. It took me quite a few lifetimes in the past decade to find you @bethanyannbullock. But everyday, I get to wake up to your cute bed head and crinkly eyes filled with joy. When you ask me to pull back the curtains and show you the day, I know that no matter what the weather, we’re gonna make it a great day together. Happy two years pickle head ❤️ (And happy one year to Moira, the brand new soul in this world that has made our worlds- even Meryl’s- funnier, messier, and sweeter in the darkest deepest point.)
I’ve been diving deep into the hard stuff with therapy lately. The parts I’ve long kept hidden- specifically eating disorder trauma and the depths of it now- are actually being spoken out loud. It’s absolutely terrifying and simultaneously freeing. But I don’t think people talk much about the after effects of facing trauma. My therapist focuses a lot on the mind-body connection, and mine is STRONG. When I’m depressed, my lower back completely freezes up. Anxiety builds in my shoulders and neck so bad, it’s causing nerve issues my chiropractor can’t understand. When trauma is released mentally, it usually needs a physical outlet too. It explains why tough therapy sessions can leave you exhausted. So right now, I’m exhausted. I’m working slow, stuck in brain fog, and binge watching Love Island. And that’s okay. It’s okay to take the time you need to recover, to rest, to recover. Don’t be afraid to listen to your body; I’m learning to listen to mine too.
I found my second tried and true sewing pattern! Introducing the @helens__closet #gilberttop 😍😍 I made no changes to the pattern, view A and size 28. I used a pretty Tencel from @joann_stores I picked up forever ago. So basically, never taking this shirt off. I feel like a sexy and comfy camp counselor. The crop is PERFECT length, and I have a long torso. Literally already have four more on deck. Adding this to the @munaandbroad #birchgrovepants as parts of my dream wardrobe of monochromatic me made. Still hunting for the perfect dress… #memadewardrobe #helenscloset #fatsewing #fatsewingclub #sewqueer #sewfat #sewfatshion #sewing #seamstresslife #fatandhappy #fatbabefall
