Across the country, a smattering of high femme fat vintage stores have popped up: Portland's Fat Fancy (www.fatfancyfashions.com), Brooklyn's Re/Dress (whose stock is available online at www.redressnyc.com). And of course, she says, there's the old standbys: Lane Bryant, Avenue for tights and boots, and the Stonestown Galleria's most gloriously trashy clothes purveyor, Torrid. Tovar says she finds fat fashion inspiration in Marie Claire writer Nicolette Mason, Marie "Curvy Fashionista" Denee (thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com), and the Near-Sighted Owl (www.nearsightedowl.com)

For Tovar, the key to fashion, for girls big, small, and in-between, is ignoring the rules and becoming the fly, fabulous change you want to see. "The tag says no, but the stretch says yes! When I see a garment, I'm seeing hope for all the hopeless situations in the world."
