Something really important happened today, because today, asos featured me as a Sneakerhead. -And guess what? They didn't need to define me by my size. Just as a person that loves to collect sneakers. A massive thanks to you asos, for being one of the few brands out there who actually cater to people of all sizes and make decent garms for girls like me. TRILL BILL.

Today, for reasons undisclosed, I feel it necessary to discuss this very important notion. I will not put down the statistic, but in the last two weeks alone, the incidences of suicide that I have personally heard of in a local proximity are staggering. I always feel concerned about this issue when I hear about it in the news thinking such thoughts as my gosh that poor individual I can't imagine what they were going through, and, if only there was something that could have stopped them. Unfortunately, having recently been diagnosed with severe anxiety, I have begun to experience some of the harmful thought processes that I imagine, if left solely in my head, could lead down a path unforseen. Things that have helped me thus far, have been talking to people. Friends, family, dr's, the neighbours cat, anyone that will listen. Realising that what I am experiencing is a completely normal side-effect of extreme stress and pressure in fact has made the outcome a little easier to deal with. I am awaiting CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) to help break the cycle of negative thought that often contributes to the cycle of low mood. I'm not saying it's easily remedied, but the hardest part in these kind of situations is being able to ask for help. So, if that is the case for anyone reading today or in the future, just remember that help is only at the end of a phone call, tweet, email, text, surprise visit to your neighbour or a message to me. In addition you can contact any one of these amazing organisations:
I've thought about creating a forum to open discussion on this topic for some time, so i'm glad to be able to finally say i've created one. As a plus-sized girl, that is interested in vintage and current streetwear and luxury fashion trends, it is always immensely frustrating to not be able to buy anything in my size which by proxy means that I don't feel i'm every really that satisfied with my wardrobe. As a result, I find myself constantly having to settle for something completely dissimilar which is so fucking dry. Alas, Assembly was born. My hope is that is will become an online community where anyone that considers them-self to be plus-size can openly discuss fashion and also trade, sell and buy their clothes without having to feel ostracised from other online communities. In time, I would like to imagine that we will become such a large presence online that we can use the group as a way to inform the brands that we love to realise that being plus size is actually incredibly normal and that we deserve some sick fucking garments too. Safe and thank you.
