Hi, my name is Mickey, you may have found this blog because you were searching for Mickey Mouse or something, or because you know me from my previous blogs, Fashion Plus 3 or MickeyMicaela and you are geniuenly interested to see what I’m up to, but regardless, I’m glad you found me.
So what is MickeyStyle? Well, its a blog blend of my style, my tips and tricks on plus size fashion, and beauty, with a twist. Every post you read will challenge conventional beauty standards, push the envelope on what plus size women are suppossed to do, or suppossed to wear and challenge a fashion industry that loves the plus size dollar, but could care less about including us in the industry.
In a utopian world, one would follow the Martin Luther King rule of thumb, which is not to judge by color, character, or size. However, as we are still struggling as a nation with all these isms, this credo is not often practiced. Your probably saying to yourself right now that you dont remember the “size part” of Mr. King’s speech. Well you’re right, that last bit about size I added because sizism is just as important to thwart as rascism or any other alienating “ism.”
Mickey Style Motto:
Everyone should be able to walk into a store, purchase fashionable clothing to wear, no matter their size.
I hope that you join me on this journey, it will be a wild ride. Many people will challenge the notions I put forth- and I encourage you to- no progress can be made with out a healthy debate. But I think that at the very least, if you’ve experienced life as a plus size woman, you will nod your head in agreement, purse you lips at our shared experiences.
