Get The Curvy Fashionista To Vienna!


One of my closest associates (even closer after Full Figured Fashion Week), the amazing Marie Denee aka The Curvy Fashionista, is one of the finalists on the Huffington Post to cover the Life Ball in Vienna!

Here is her blog information:

Here is the contest information:

On Wednesday we announced a contest to send a reader on an all-expenses-paid trip to Vienna, Austria to cover the Life Ball on July 17th. The event is not only one of the world’s largest AIDS fundraisers, but it’s also a really good time.
The response was great–so great we decided to pick 11 finalists! We then asked each for a video or picture (if they don’t have video capabilities) explaining why he or she should be chosen to cover the event for the Huffington Post. Vote for your pick! Voting ends Wednesday July 7th at noon, and the winner will be announced that day at 2pm.

The link to vote for the lovely Marie is here:

Please vote number 10! So that a beautiful, luxurious lady can cover the ball!

Remember to VOTE, Dahlings!


They are warning here in New York City that the lines will be long at the polling places. I did my level best to convince the local officials to allow me to vote from the privacy of my own home, or at the very least provide a chair for me to sit in comfortably while I waited, but no. I refuse to wear flats, even for my country. There is a limit to patriotism.

Of course, I could try to be there at 6 AM, when my local polls open, but really…! It’s all I can do to arise before noon, how can they expect a woman to be there at such an ungodly hour? How bourgeois. Be that as it may, Bucky and I will be there tomorrow, ready to cast my/our vote. If I have to mill around with the great unwashed, so be it.

People who proudly proclaim they don’t vote are beneath contempt, in my unhumble opinion. Perhaps nothing profoundly different will come of this election, but that does not allow one to remove oneself entirely from the democratic process that America was founded upon. (Having to think all of the Deep Thoughts I have had to in recent days has given me such a long-lasting, pounding headache I simply cannot wait for this all to be over.)

When it is, I can give myself over to the truly important thing in life: Fashion In The True Sense.

Unless, God help us, Sarah Palin gets into office. Imagine: one malignant carcinoma away from the presidency.

I shall see you at the polls…but please do not approach me.
