INES Giveaway

So, that Printed Cobalt dress I wore in the 3rd Fat Rant:

It’s from INES, a clothing line run by some friends of mine who have decided to hooook us UP, Internet. Let me tell you.

They’re giving me 2 pieces to raffle off to YOU, dear readers. All you’ve got to do is comment below, and on Dec. 4th I’ll use one of those handy random number generators like Gabi does to pick a winner!

The pieces up for grabs are the Deco Print Wrap Dress seen above and the Meridian Print Dress.

AND, they’ve hooked me up with a 40% off sales code for you too:

Spread it far and wide! , personally- I’m really into this Peacock print top: .

I’ll let you know what it’s like when it comes in… 🙂

    I like that peacock print too. You know, the first fatrant changed my entire outlook on life. I have since learned to love and accept myself for who I am and to stop feeling bad about my weight. Keep making the world a better place Joy, one formerly self hating fat person at a time!

    I love the Deco Print dress – perfect for the party season!

  3. 4 Jaime Patterson November 27, 2009 at 3:59 am

    I could not agree with Tiffany more. Joy you are a pretty fantastic woman,from your fashion sense to your wit. You’re pretty much a hero of mine 🙂

    I love the Deco Print Wrap Dress, it is so adorable 🙂 I’m going to order something today!! As Tiffany said, I’ve finally learned to love and accept myself. I remember being the tall, fat, awkward girl with bad acne and a huge gap between her teeth while I was growing up. I walked with my head held down. I wore oversized clothing, way too much make-up, and I covered my mouth when I laughed. As I grew older, I got braces, my skin cleared up and you know what I was still tall and fat. One day I looked in the mirror and said you’re beautiful. I stopped wearing layers of make-up and layers of clothes. I learned to love the skin and the body that I’m in and I’ve never been happier. I hold my head up high and I refuse to let the opinions and judgment of others effect me. Thank you for fat rants. You’re an inspiration Joy 🙂

    Sure, that would be a neat thing! But it’s really awesome that your Fat Rant was widespread enough that retailers see you as a person who reaches audiences they also want to reach.

  6. 7 Victoria November 27, 2009 at 5:22 am

    Ooh! I want it! I’ve been longing for that dress ever since I saw the video.

  7. 8 Kate November 27, 2009 at 6:32 am

    Thank you to INES and to you Joy for doing this giveaway! I remember Fat Rant 3 . . . and I remember being so excited when I first saw it that I told dh all about it . . . rather rambled on, I’m afraid! LOL

  8. 9 Zen November 27, 2009 at 7:18 am

    A chance to acquire either of those dresses for free? Heck yes, I’m in.

    I love the way the Deco Print dress looks on you – it’s seriously fantastic!

  9. 10 Alexis November 27, 2009 at 7:32 am

    Niiice. I ordered from them before, based on the strength of your review in the fatshionista LJ community and was very pleased with the quality to price ratio. Count me in!

  10. 11 Sophia November 27, 2009 at 7:45 am

    I’ve loved that dress when I saw you wear it, and I loved that Fat Rant video. 🙂

  11. 12 Anna C November 27, 2009 at 7:57 am

    Love the clip, love the cute dresses… the fact that the wordpress preview gives me a link to gastric bypass… not so much love!

  12. 13 Cassy November 27, 2009 at 8:19 am

    I have absolutely adored the Deco dress since the first time I saw you in it. Prints usually worry me, but it looks a-mazing. I keep telling myself that one day I will have one too, but still haven’t made it to said day.

  13. 14 Beth November 27, 2009 at 8:21 am

    Wow, fantastic! I think I’ll head over there for some shopping now… it’s the day after Thanksgiving, after all!

  14. 16 Rai November 27, 2009 at 8:25 am

    I came across your website thru the LJ fatshionista community. . . that dress is LOVELY. I don’t know how I can call myself a woman since I don’t even OWN a wrap dress. lol. I am tempted to just go and buy the dress, because with the coupon, it is only 50ish with shipping.

  15. 17 Bee November 27, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Both those dresses are gorgeous! Like Tiffany above, I also found your fat rants to be very eye-opening. I may still be a work-in-progress, but it sure beats standing still.

  16. 18 ali November 27, 2009 at 8:31 am

    oh, good, i LOVE that dress!! it looks wonderful on you, and i love the video, too.

  17. 19 eliz November 27, 2009 at 8:32 am

    oooh i love the meridian print dress! but i ADORE the inverted pleat dresses, particularly the one with the bright red flowers.

  18. 20 Sharon Paul November 27, 2009 at 8:35 am

    I found your first fatrant on facebook awhile ago (has it been years already?), and sent it to everyone. LOVED IT. And I still think of it now, and am THRILLED to find that you’ve done more!! I hate on my own self a lot less, thanks to you. 🙂

  19. 22 stitchtowhere November 27, 2009 at 8:53 am

    i have been lusting after those INES dresses for quite some time… Thanks for the code, and thanks for the chance to possibly win on!


  20. 23 Ellen November 27, 2009 at 9:00 am

    So that’s where that gorgeous blue dress is from! I’d been making do with the poor woman’s version from Old Navy. I’d link you, but alas… it’s no longer on the site.

  21. 24 Devon November 27, 2009 at 9:01 am

    The Deco Print dress is just gorgeous.

    Thanks for your rants, too. I sent #3 to my mom… just a lil hint.

    Hey Joy,

    Just putting my name in for the draw. 🙂 I am a fat horseback rider and I have recently started an awareness/encouragement/resource blog for plus sized riders – I’ve posted your first fat rant in an entry that was about fat as a descriptive word and not a derogatory term. I’d love to chat more about your project and mine but understand you’re a busy gal!

  84. 89 Dana December 1, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    wow…I’ve never heard of INES before. What a great intro. Thanks for your rants. They are awesome.

  85. 90 evo December 1, 2009 at 11:36 pm

  86. 91 pretygirl December 2, 2009 at 6:23 am

  88. 93 BonitaAppleBum December 2, 2009 at 9:25 pm

    I love your videos, I came across them from another blog called fatshopaholic. The last few minutes of your video was like the gospel to me, I still look at my prom picture and say why the hell was I so depressed back then I was cute as hell! You have to live life for today!

    Oh and the contest, I would love either dresses, I dont wear them enough anyway, so I need to jumpstart my wardrobe.

    Keep the videos coming they are truly inspiring.

  89. 94 KJ December 3, 2009 at 2:22 am

    I LOVE that dress! Am I too late for the drawing?!

  95. 100 Robin January 30, 2010 at 6:47 pm


    Did you do the drawing?

    Who won? What do they look like in the clothes?

    It would be great to see someone enjoying them/life as much as you do!


  96. 101 Jennifer Pereira, RD February 8, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    You are a gift to people everywhere. I am going to embed your videos on my site. I have been telling clients to watch you on youtube for the past six months or so since I discovered your genius gorgeousness. Thank you for doing what you can to free others from body hate. It is a horrible barrier to living life. People come to me for weight loss–they look at me like I am nuts when I tell them they need to love where they are, or they’ll never be comfortable with food. You are awesome–thanks for sharing your brilliance with everyone.

  97. 102 DIY November 16, 2011 at 1:15 am

    Let me guess, girls her age didn’t have those kinds of hobbies back when you were growing up? Things change, time never stands still and one of the most remarkable things about life is that each and every beautiful new baby girl will eventually grow into a young lady – and for those to whom it has already happened, well done – you must be proud.
