I’m just going to say it. I Feel Pretty starring Amy Schumer is one of my favorite movies. Have you seen it?

I have watched this movie many times. I would love for you to watch it too. I saw it first in the theater. I thought it was just a funny movie with Amy Schumer doing her jokes but it is so much more to me.

Let me give away the middle part. The only thing that changes is her mindset. She is still the same person on the outside.

Now let me say this. There are plenty of things I do to to increase my confidence. I have my favorite skin care products, I get my hair done every 6 to 8 weeks, I add false eyelashes because mine are pretty short and I want them longer and fuller. The other thing I do is add clothes that look good on my particular body.

I have always been the chubby girl. All my life. My sister one year younger was so thin. So thin. It was difficult. I have tried a ton of weight loss things and I’m going to tell you that I am finally, at age 56, to the point where I am feeling happy with myself. I feel attractive and I have decided to stop making food, what I eat and trying not to eat, the focus of my day.

I’m just going to say this. You are beautiful. You are awesome. You are a miracle. Just as you are. I want you to feel that.

If you don’t right now go watch that movie. Here’s the trailer.

One more thing…well, three more things:

  1. I’m going to be going live on Instagram every week on Fridays at 3PM EST. I will save the video on YouTube and IGTV for those of you who can’t be at the lives. But you might want to follow me over there. Http://Instagram.com/bethsmithtextiles
  2. Last week’s giveaway was so fun for me that I decided to to have a monthly giveaway. There will be a drawing for one winner on the 15th of each month for a gift card worth $100 toward a made to order skirt in your choice of fabrics. To enter on mobile scroll down to the bottom of this screen and on desktop just look to your right to see the entry form.
  3. I have changed the way I’m doing things around here. Instead of making skirts that are ready to ship it looks like most of you would love to have a skirt that we design together. So the two new styles I listed which are the Retro Style Circle Skirt and Gathered waist skirts have choices for you. If you are not in love with any of the fabric choices then please choose the custom option and we will find the perfect fabric for you.
