Its winter, instead of the usual beanie, why not a Beret? A nod to the awesomeness that is Jazzmyne Robbins -if you dont know her - google her - you wont be disappointed. She drips inspo & beams boss bitch vibes - i cant help but fan girl her & her Beret collection.
If you are a fan of Kevin Smith and his Character, Silent Bob, then you know his iconic over-sized Green (& Black) jacket. For me, I love Olive Green tones and maybe its a subtle influence of this character that when it comes to jackets, mine need to be tent size. This does however make me look like a prime suspect for shop lifting, so it feels a little weird exiting stores lately and been given the second look from staff & security.
Apart from that, its probably the only piece in my closet that has a name 'Silent Bob' (well actually this is Silent Bob the 2nd, Silent Bob the 1st is my other older and much loved jacket that has seen better days). Either way, its a nod to a character, writer, director, pod caster and all round good human Kevin Smith- LOVE THAT MAN!
With that been said, its kind of appropriate that of all places i find this jacket but in the Men's clothing section. Getting anything over 3XL is difficult with woman's ranges as you're already at the end of that size scale (NZ 20-24). With plus size men, although they too feel limited in variety, their sizing goes beyond the set limitations we see in woman's clothing. So if you want that -over-sized item when you are over-sized, look past the marketing of 'Male' clothing to its potential of it being Unisex or 'Yoink, fucking mine now!'
Wow 2019, its almost half way through the year and Ive only just started to get back on the bloggy-blog.
2018, wasn't a good year, i shouldn't say it was all bad but, it was very testing.
If i could summarize or smack a slogan on this bitch, it was the year of LOSING!
I could ramble on and on but in-hindsight most of my 'issues' were really some bullshit first world problems.
In reflection what i had lost, was perspective.
So i took some time off, tried to get out of living in my own head. Got on that Netflix buzz, Marie Kondo my closet, painted walls, completely renovated our kitchen- which was well over due but most importantly spend time with friends and family. As much as i felt like presence with loved ones was self serving, what i forgot was time with others is seldom a selfish act. I too could also serve to support another, offer an ear to listen to, a shoulder to cry on, a hug to feel love and a dirty joke to laugh at.
For now ill leave with some literal Blue inspo, bye bye Summer!
