My new hummingbird dress…

Some ootds…

hummingbird dress: eShakti —still available in blue and black!
bolero: Torrid
belt: Target
shoes: thrifted
earrings: Koi in Pasadena

I’ve been wearing this dress non-stop since it came in the mail a week or 2 ago. I need to take some more pictures because this past weekend my mom altered it for me– no more saggy waist and baggy nipples! For now though, all I got are pics of the belt and bolero combo disguise.

What I like to listen to:

Fatties on Ice:
http://www.fattiesonice.com/
These two are smart and funny and easy on the ears… and they talk funny. Especially when they say things like “against” and “house”.

Fatcast:

More of the smart, funny variety. Really really good if you’re wondering what the whole “fat acceptance” thing is all about.

This American Life:

I’ve been working my way through from the beginning… I’m only in 1997, but it’s awesome. Really really awesome. I can’t believe they make this stuff available for free!!

Dear Santa, please send me the complete recordings.

Launching Size-Acceptance Study

My friend Michaela is looking for participants for the study she’s doing as part of her doctorate degree- I’m happy to extend the call here:

Call for Participants

Hi, my name is Michaela A. Null, and I am a doctoral student in Sociology at Purdue University. I am doing a study about the embodiment of size-accepting fat women, with attention to the ways in which gender, race, sexual orientation, and body size intersect.

I am currently looking for individuals who are interested in volunteering to participate in my study. If you are interested in volunteering to participate in an interview, I ask that take an electronic informational survey, which will take approximately 5 minutes. Please go here
http://purdue.qualtrics.com/SE?SID=SV_etvIKJ1LFV0gFNi
and complete the informational survey. After all survey data has been collected, participants will be selected for interviews, which will be conducted in-person, by phone, or via internet chat, and will last between an hour and an hour and a half.

Participation is voluntary and participants must be at least 18 years old.

This project has been approved by my university’s Institutional Review Board, which protects human subjects of research. I will provide confidentiality to all volunteers and participants will be referred to by a pseudonym in all research documents.

If you have any questions regarding this study, you can contact me at mnull@purdue.edu. For more information on me, you can access my university profile here http://www.cla.purdue.edu/sociology/directory/?p=Michaela_Null.
You can also contact Professor Eugene Jackson, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Purdue University, at jacksone@purdue.edu.

Sincerely,

Michaela A. Null, Doctoral Candidate in Sociology, Purdue University
