Mimmi and Peppi


Photo Credit: Niko Rakkolainen
I may just have a new favorite fat fashion blog. Mimmi (on the right, above) and Peppi (left) are two stylish girls from Helsinki, Finland. They write the blog More To Love (which came before the terrible reality TV show), and as Finland's only fat lifestyle blog, it has skyrocketed in popularity. I must admit, it's one of the most refreshing fat fashion blogs I've seen in a while; from Mimmi's sneakers to Peppi's high-waisted skirts, these girls definitely have well-defined personal style. They love leggings, acid wash denim, bright colors and fun accessories, and their bubbly personalities are more than apparent in their photos. It's sad that their blog is in Finnish (I tried Google Translator, it's still barely comprehensible), but the style shown in their pictures totally makes up for it!

Location: Helsinki, Finland
Sizes: Mimmi: 16-18 Peppi: 10-16

  13. For girls, women or whoever wants pink shoes, there are Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Premium shoes. They can probably be worn on the basketball court, but might be a better fashion statement off the court.

    Now go out and start practicing your basketball skills in some Jordan shoes. You'll at least look like you know what you're doing.
