My Answer

I loved all your answers. Artists, writers, travelers, animal rescuers- all of you so inspiring!

Me? What would I do if I knew I could not fail? Since I can't seem to just let it go at ONE thing being the over-achiever that I am, I've decided on a multi-layered dream.

I'd launch a clothing line that would cater to curvy cuties and fashionable chubbettes.
The clothes would flatter their figures and make them feel sexy. (Unlike the atrocities that we are currently forced to choose from.) And who would be the spokesmodel for this sassy line of clothes? Well, me of course. I'd join the likes of Kate and Charlotte and Emme. Here comes Ms. Sizzle.

Along with launching my clothing line, I'd start a non-profit that promotes self-esteem and self-acceptance among women and girls. The organization would promote healthy self-images through outreach and education and support groups. It would be ambitious- with classes ranging from assertive communication to dance to art to entrepreneurism. It's a lofty goal but this is a dream, right?

You go Ms. Sizzle!!! Show the world that the average women are not anorexics. Can I come to your first New York runway fashion show and support you?

You know what? I don't even know what I would do. I'm not sure what would make me happy.

I already want you to pose on the cover of my imaginary magazine.

Bill said...

Oh, sure ... but what about the boys? What about our clothes? Our self-esteem? Our sense of purpose? What will we do once you're launched?

Melissa said...

Well I'm totally shopping your line because I know it will rock my socks and sign me up as a monthly volunteer/speaker for your non-prof. Happy to also give week long clinics every quarter to women hoping to open their own businesses and give skills training.

And tomorrow we take over the world!!!

I think that sounds fabulous! Go for it!

Well, the clothing I've done. I was a manager once for a clothing line (not LB) that catered to the "larger" clientelle and yes, some of it was the crappy stuff (just 'cause there are older ladies who love polyester - go figure), but they also had younger lines. I had fun with it at the time.

You? You would rock. I can tell just from what pics I've seen that you could pull this off - no sweat. Geez, this isn't even that far out of a dream, Siz... this is DO-ABLE. Seriously.

Always thinking of others, Siz is... me? I'm too selfish. Oh, and I don't like people.

Name the time, place, and I will be there! I need some cute clothes and a pep talk!

Love it. Especially the non-profit idea. Lofty, yes. But attainable? Also yes.
