Circle This With A Red Pen…
I have recently bought a ton of new things that I really want to show off to you guys. But for the life of me, can I be arsed to get pretty, get dressed up and fight with my mediocre camera to take some decent shots? Like fuck can I.
I need to employ a Fatshion Nanny, who will come live with me and make sure I get dressed up appropriately every day and document it accordingly. She’ll also need to help me resurrect my sewing skills and so I can get around to finishing all of my Fatshion DIY projects. Last but not least, she’ll need to have a great command of the piano and have mad gangsta show tune skills, for when I need to sing about my feelings of course.
Are you my Nanny?
No you don’t understand i have a good fashion sense but i don’t have any money
I am rather enjoying giving ASOS hell >=o) …
I have decided to use the rest of my PSM hormones to adequately grill ASOS on most of their Facebook posts. I’m not being rude, aggressive or crass, because that wont allow me/us to be heard. I am on the other hand, stating the issue for all people to see, including them, in a more intelligent passive aggressive plain English way.
I wont even mention the actual effect it has on the people they just want money from. I’m speaking on their behalf with a business slant to my argument. How they can make more money by being MUCH less offensive, disrespectful, lazy, insensitive and feverishly disappointing. Everybody happy.
Far be it for me to tell you lovelies what to do, but a little noise can go a long way.
Many in body one in mind I say!
Felt a feeling and wrote a disgruntled email about it. Tumblr, what have you done to me?!
“I’m a really big fan of ASOS and as a plus size woman I think ASOS Curve is one of the best ranges available. However, I am really disappointed in the new model you are using. In my opinion she is far from plus size and I’m sure she does not wear a size 18! I don’t know why it should be necessary to use a slim model for the range, it’s a plus size range and we are plus size consumers. The use of the model had really put me off buying certain items as I like to be able to genuinely imagine how I would look wearing them, not how they would look on my skinny friend. I just thought I would give you this feedback as it has actually upset me and I feel it may be damaging for both slimmer women who do not identify as plus sized and also larger women who are being told it’s ok to wear plus sizes as long as you do not outwardly appear fat.
Thanks for your time”
Are they being dense on purpose? - ezzl you hit the nail on the head. This is unacceptable and complete poor form. Even on the business side of things, what’s the point of simultaneously ignoring your target market whilst trying to gain their repeated custom. I imagine that they assume we will not band together and talk about it. She’s a lovely looking girl, she just doesn’t sell the product adequately. Again I am thinking along the business lines, show clothes in the different sizes and shapes, employ plus size bloggers, set up a community surrounding the clothes and reap the monetary rewards. DUH!
