Buffie Purselle is feelin' herself — and she doesn't care who knows it. On March 29, the Married to Medicine friend shared a photo of herself wearing a mermaid dress that hugged her every curve. She added a short, to-the-point caption: "Lovin' my fat ass today."
Along with serving as a self-appreciation post, the share was meant to drum up support for independent businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. "[Support small business] from home," Buffie encouraged her followers, adding that the body-skimming dress she wore was from the black-woman-owned business Onion Cut & Sewn. (A similar style can be found here, for $135 — and yes, the company can ship.) Describing Onion designer Whitney Mero in the comments, Buffie wrote: "She’s very talented and knows how to dress folks with REAL bawdys."
In the photo, the personal-finance pro used a pretty pink wall as her backdrop. Posing like a pro, she wore red lipstick and round glasses. But the star accessory seemed to be her hair. Buffie's dark curls formed a lush cloud around her face, inspiring followers to pipe in with comments comparing her to Chaka Kahn.
Emily Simpson was among the thousands who gave the post a double-tap, which is perhaps no coincidence. The Real Housewives of Orange County beauty is big on body-positive posts herself, and often posts images that celebrate her gorgeous figure.
