New in for 2013, my first ever purchase from the website
ASOS (this isn’t a review where I got free shit with strings attached, no-no. I
picked it, paid for mine and will say what’s on my mind). Although I’m breaking
the ‘more than tights’ fashion resolution, this was a purchase made before my
proclamation. Now I’m not much of an online buyer, I prefer physically trying
on items and inspecting the quality before I buy. Been an avid tight wearer, I
had been searching , waiting and hoping that retailers would produce tights that
came in any other colour aside from black.So when I saw Oxblood coloured tights at a reasonable
price on the asos website I took a gamble, ordered a size up (just in case) and
waited. Less than 2weeks later I got them and here they are, worn out for the
first time. When they arrived the material seemed thinner than I’m used to but
after a day of walking all over the joint, they held up and didn’t tear at the
seams. I love the colour, the fact it’s the same price I would pay at the store
and it had FREE delivery. But...its early days, it still has to prove its quality - with
standing the friction between a fat girls thighs, if it holds together and the
material doesn't thin out, then I know I’ve got a winner!
This post is a collection of some of my fav fashion
moments from 2012. Like they say, if you don’t look back how can you know where
you’re going – or something along those lines.
In reflection of these photos I found a lot of
commonalties between them that I had become oblivious to. From layering to a
lot of tight wearing and lack of after 5(pm) photos, there is a bit of a ‘uniform’
look carrying through. What was once daring to me, has now become common place,
so to push my own fashion boundaries and to become more comfortable in my
chubby body I have come up with a FASHION RESOLUTION for 2013.
1. Show some of that skin
Not that I’ll start having my tits spilling out of tops, but
dare to bare more leg and especially arms. This is a real sticking point for me
as honestly I hate my bat-winged arms, so 99% of my tops have sleeves that go
no shorter than my elbow. So time to flash some flesh!
2. More than tights
I love tights! They are easy to wear, comfortable and
provide protection against thigh rubbage. I wear them in the day and at night;
I wear them out shopping, to lunch with friends, dinner with fam, hell even to
parties and clubs. But like sweat pants, they have become my ‘Go-To’ item and a
look that has become quite uniform to me. So time to hit up some bottom half
3. Night time fun
So I hate carrying chunky cameras in my lil clutch - it
takes room away from the shit I have to carry that keeps my face in place. Simple
solution, I have to be more conscious in taking pre-function photos. So time to
click it before we hit it.
4. New camera
My point and click broke months ago, asking to borrow is
becoming a hassle and iphone pic’s from my friends tend to be shit (especially
in low light situations). To get better quality as well as beautiful images I
have to upgrade to a DSLR, so time to save up to buy up.
5. Hair flair
I’m currently growing out the undercut part of my hair
but fighting the urge to run to the hair dressers to shave it back because of
its awkward in-between phase is damn hard. I have never been a girl that paid as
much attention to my hair as I do my clothes but this year, with how my hair is
now, I really need to change this. My idea, hit up You Tube some styling tutorials,
maybe look into curling my locks or wearing my hair out. So Hair, here I come.
In 2013, Im looking forward to new fashion adventures as
well as finding some new fat fashion blogs to stalk. Do you have any style
resolutions or can recommend any fat fashion blogs? Feel free to share in the
comments section, other than that, Happy New Year and all the best for 2013 fellow viewers and bloggers.
