Read the Tee

When i cant figure out what im going to wear, i go to one of my default outfits... Yes, my printed tee, skirt and sneaker combo. This year i have picked up wearing skirts again, since finding my thigh saver in bike shorts.
Chub rub is all too real in this fat girls life and while many of the bloggers i follow, have their own solutions, i never really found these to suite me. What did work was shorts or boxers - what i had worn throughout high school under my uniform skirt. But as i got older and yes, lets be truthful, fatter, it got harder and harder to find these items in my size. Before i knew it, i was favoring pants and tights and these became the norm. But on my trip to Oz last year (while browsing through Target), i finally found bike shorts in my size and from there i have been getting back into the skirt groove.

Westside Til I Die

Its a day of contrasts, baby Pink kimono against my 2Pac printed tee, roaming the play ground of a Catholic school. No matter where you are, dont forget where you come from and what you represent.

Fade into it

 When i got this dress, i didn't expect it to be boarder flesh toned (the perils of buying online). It took me a while to figure out how i was going to wear this without looking like the missing beige telly tubby, but layers are my best friend. Thank goodness for vests, breaks up the solid colour and a piece that helps transition in Autumn.

Ruffle Touch

There seems to be a trend with Ruffles poppin up on all the clothing websites i usually troll over.
So watch me join that bandwagon with a top that subtle embraces the trend in the sleeve.
Of course Im not a complete fiend for trends so i whip out my 90s skirt for contrast, new vs old and well chucks are classics, so its just a jumble of giving no fucks and comfort.

Burgundy Love

 Couple weeks ago, i was checking the City Chic email alerts and curiosity had me browsing through their website. Of course i spot this dress but the price was out of my league, so i clicked it good bye. 
When i went to the CC Outlet store and actually saw it, the last one, in the colour i had been drooling over, i grabbed that bitch and power walked to the dressing room, hoping it would fit.
Happily it did, so patience and a chance look in the end, paid off.
  My favorite four letter word, SALE!

Typical Westie

What is stereotypical of West Aucklanders? Its the love of animal print!
This thrifted top of poka-dots mixed in with leopard and bitz of zebra plays homage to my neighborhood and like the last post, this too is on my hit list for culling back on my closet.
So one last bourbon and coke to this oldie but a goodie.

One Womans Trash

I picked up this thrifted dress sometime ago, brought to wear for a 90s themed, 21st birthday.
Although i did wear it with a grunge edge, i hung it in my closet and over time it was pushed further and further to the back (you know in that blind corner of your closet, where you cant really reach, without out having to take out a whole bunch of clothes out so you can slide in and look) yea, right in there.
I had a half arse clean of my closet, trying to be proactive in my goal of being less of a hoarder and i did find it difficult to let go of some of these clothes. So i made a deal with myself, that i would wear this (and a few more other items) at least one or two more times and give them up to good will, where the recycling circle can continue. As they say, one (Wo)mans trash, is another (Wo)mans treasure.

Happy New Year

Its day 3 of the New Year -sad to say im still processing the end of 2016, hell, im still processing the Christmas dinner we had at our house. It has been awhile since i posted, like most, life had to be dealt with, both time and motivation was lacking to be creative. 
I have never really been a person who sets new years resolutions (i am a cynical bastard) but i know i want to aim for change this year. 
Firstly, i know i want to blog more, be more creative with the content i present (which is something i will have to figure out- but a good challenge nevertheless). Then the rest is more personal goals, of course the main one being, Spend less - Save more! Which will go hand in hand with being more of a conscious consumer and less of a hoarder.
That aside, first blog of 2017 and well, shit... im in casual wear.
My shirt was actually a birthday gift from my sister, an image i had saved and always said 'this would make a mean tee'. Like a good sis, she listened, got it printed and i love it. 
  Anyway, blessings to you and yours, lets aim for a better 2017 yawl
