Double take on the tights, this time worn to Beyoncé’s Mrs Carter world tour. A birthday treat spent again with my best buddy Tia. I must say Beyoncé is a force to be wreaked with. She started on time – very professional, her voice played centre stage – because I didn’t pay to hear the band overshadow her voice, she had great graphics – to distract us whilst she changed, she sparkled with costumes, drew us in with her moves and dominated with her voice. Although I had always admired her, I had this perception that she was a bitchy centre of attention diva and after seeing the show I felt a huge sense of respect for her. She may be a bitch, who knows, but seeing how hard she works during her concert, the line ‘A diva is a female version of a hustler’ rings true. Like Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, Beyoncé is surely the Queen, if you have a chance to see this woman, DO!
As a birthday gift to my best friend Tia, I had brought tickets to Rihanna's Diamonds world tour. Although her birthday was over a month ago and I purchased the tickets back in june, the wait was well worth it. What amazed me was even though me and my friend were on island time, we still managed to get a good spot being 5/6 meters away from the stage. Close enough to actually see her face without having to rely on the jumbo screens to see her and we were just amazed at how beautiful Rihanna is in real life. I mean lets face it, half the people we see on magazines are powder coated in make up and photo shopped to hell, so when me and Tia saw her we were in ore. Knowing that we would rock the joint in a hot sweaty mess, we made sure to take photos before heading out and this is what we wore. Tia's orange top and mine are both Poncho tops made by me (the most easiest thing anyone can make- take a piece of material, cut a circle in the middle, fold in half, sew 3/4 up the side, bam, Poncho top!) My top was 2/3rd's sheer exposing the fun bags in a lacy red bra with the bottom panel in solid material to hide my belly and the possibility of ass crack (due to the fact my tights were not actually that tight!).
All in all great night out and even more so when your with your best friend,
Since my first purchase of ASOS Cruve back in December, I've got to admit my closet is slowly morphing into the Outlet section of the website. Dont get me wrong, I'm still avid thrifter but its nice to know that slowly (very, very, slowly) that there are more options available out there for the plus size peps.
If you're fat and reading this, you will know personally that we don't even have half as much options available to us than what straight size people have, yet fat people are fucking every where! Its almost to the point that once you pass size 18, that fashion just seems to come to a halt and you should just give up. Its what most of us struggle with, the limits set by chain retailers that determine what we should look like.
Fact is, what ever size you maybe, we all have the right to dress in a manner that reflects how you want to express your self. If most retailers don't want to wake up to that fact then, fuck you, I'll take my money else where and y'all can kiss my fat ass!
I'm trying my best not to completely immerse myself in black but its a lot harder when the majority of your winter gear is 50 shades of black and grey. So for a pop of colour I grabbed the 2 most brightly coloured necklaces I had and layered them on. Adding a scarf round the handle of my bag has become a go to accessory during winter, its a touch of colour much needed and when it gets chilly, its readily available to wrap round the jugular.
I’ve been rocking a lot of beanies as of late. The chill in the air and the fact my hair is still looking messed up with growing out the undercut, all I want to do is cover my head. So be warned, hats and beanies will be a common thread over the coming months. Yay for winter accessories!
out to dinner with some old uni mates (when I say dinner, I mean eat out, at a
burger joint, no cutlery required). Resolution of night time outfits, well this
is a start. Luckily the flash on my new camera is decent enough to capture shit,
although I had to wear the sunnies to save my retinas.
It was a
hot day and I was head to ankle in black, which really isn't advisable. Luckily
my top was thin so this lushness could breathe. Today’s theme was monochrome
minimal. In this hotter than usual summer we've been experiencing, I felt the
need to go simple (simple & comfortable), accessorising with only my d.i.y
statement necklace and a pair of sunnies. My make –up was neutral, pale lips
with white eye-liner on the upper lid (which really brought out the lash line-
no need for mascara) but the emphasis was on the brow, I coloured those suckers
in. Part from that, just another day representing the fat!
What better way to spend the day than with
your best friend catching up for a good yarn and a feed. Still loving this
sheer shirt! Much love to my friend Tia who is credited
with taken these photos, what is a blogger without roping their loved ones into
the role of photographer?
just a casual outfit for roaming the local farmers market. I love this shirt
not only for the fact that it’s such an easy piece to wear but for its rad shoulder
cut outs. I’m still not a fan of baring my arms but the cut outs are a great
alternative to show some skin but still having the coverage of a sleeve to hide
what you don’t want flapping about. Plus it’s a nod to my fashion resolution of
baring more flesh but in a way that I feel comfortable in doing so. But damn,
why aren’t there more of these shirts around coz I would buy them up like candy
(maybe D.I.Y some, something to consider for my next project?).
get up to see the ‘Who Shot Rock & Roll’ exhibit held at the Auckland Art
of the rock theme I pulled out one of my new purchases of 2013, a Biker style
jacket from City Chic. Although it’s not (p)leather, it still has a similar
look and will be a great substitute till I find the real deal. But most of all I’m
looking forward to pairing it with a lot of my dresses I find way to girlie to
wear on their own, I need a bit of edge over the frilly.
