Wow

Wow.

Went to an open air market in Tel Aviv this past week. Looked at a number of "one size fits all" skirts- some wrap-arounds, some broomstick like with elastic waists. On the other hand, only one stall guy was even remotely obnoxious about it.

Not one would have fit a leg, never mind both.

And I might add this is after introducing 40 minutes of quick walking a day into my life (we do not have a car here and I need to be a 20 minute walk away by 8:30 every morning and get home in the afternoon) that has none of my clothing staying up anymore and me starting to get desperate for a good seamstress!

In all seriousness, this not being able to get clothing in this country might be a problem much sooner than I expected.

Hey, there you are! I have been wondering where you have gone off to. So you moved to Israel, how exciting!

Hey, I am still around, just learning the new ropes is all. I am trying to find sources for plus sized stuff here and, well, it is juts not working so well! Even finding places that will ship to here is almost as bad as it was back in Toronto!

I do have some new posts though coming in the next couple of weeks though. The plan is to get this back up and running as I learn my way around.

So glad I found your blog - I'm always looking for info on being big and comfortable around the world. Plus, I used to live in Israel (if there's anything I can tell you, please let me know :) ). I tried to write you an email but the email address on your main page wasn't working. Is there somewhere I can send you an email?

Hi Jay,

Cool. Can you tell me where I can shop in this country? Seriously. I am in Tel Aviv a couple of times a month... they have to have somewhere no?

You can email me at rachel(at)phony-art(dot)com
