Um, second post? If I'm doing something wrong, just let me know.
I'm not fat, but I suppose in the fashion world I'd be considered a big girl. I am 5'5 and a size 7/8 in most Jeans...about 130 lbs. My legs are my major problem. They aren't REALLY big, but I'm VERY pale in general. I know girls bigger than me..with bigger legs/thighs who just pull off skirts much better because the darker skin is slimming. Could anyone suggest a good length/cut for bigger legs/calves? Also, a good brand of jeans which minimize the thighs. Shoes that will make my legs look nicer...?
I'm going to NYC this coming Saturday, (because no way am I going to find any nice brand name clothing in Nowhere, Pa.)so if anyone could suggest any places to shop with a modest budget. I work at Kmart...and I'll be going on about $400 and have some gifts to buy yet...
I was actually just reading an article the other day from a group here, called "Pretty, Porky and Pissed Off." It's a bunch of activitist young women who are seeking the promotion of a more varied body type within our culture, and simply having a lot of fun, regardless of your sizing. I'm not sure whether you fit into that completely yourself but it did get me thinking... I can't find you that much right now, since I'm heading to bed, but I will definitely make a search for something fabulous tomorrow afternoon!

I dont think that pale is your problem, your white legs will look killer in some nylons, fishnets or textured/patterened tights (which is great for winter, but you'll look fine bare legged, aint no shame!), a slender heel, and an a-line skirt preferably to the knee or an inch or two longer. Hope that helps! Best of luck to you im sure your beautiful.
I don't think that you'd be considered a 'big girl' as you aren't plus sized. I think with these sorts of things it's just trial and error. try on different lengths and fabrics and see what works best for you and your strenghts and weaknesses
Addendum: What would be the appropriate board to post pictures of things I have or would like to have/would put together just to gvie people an idea of my sense of styleand get some opinions on what everything looks like together...?
