Bring Plus SIze Fashion to Target! Calling Your Attention to a Petition

I was going through my Google Reader feed today when I came across this post on StyleIt. In it Sarah Conely (who's "On the Plus Side" articles I ADORE) reaches out to her readers in an effort to get them to sign a petition to Target to bring Plus Size fashion designers to their stores the way they've brought other high end designers to the regular clothing line. I think this is a FABULOUS idea!

The petition reads:

To: Target Corporation
Dear Target, Each season, you skillfully and beautifully execute exclusive designer collaborations and partnerships with leading fashion designers. As plus size women, we are oft neglected, overlooked and always sized out of your collections.

We have money to spend as much as our straight sized sisters do. We love to look just as fabulous as the other Fashionistas, yet you neglect to even think of us in the equation. We fawn over the Zac Posen for Target, and strategically finagle through the cuts that could pass on our curves; salaciously we look as each fantastic and highly coveted collaboration passes us along- due to you ignoring our thirst and hunger for fashion.

Therefore, I, Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, Patrice of Afrobella, and Sarah of Style It Online have come together with our followers and the fa(t)shionistas within the plus size community to request, demand, and call for an inclusion of and/or special designer collaborations for the plus size fa(t)shionistas.
Sincerely, The Undersigned
 I am proud to say I was number 1070 to sign this petition. Have you signed it? Will you sign it? I hope you do!
