outfit of the day/dodgy doodles

Excuse the amateurish doodle but I thought I’d try something a bit different. It’s just a shame it doesn’t really look like me and I’m completely unable to draw leopard print:

hello cupid

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great one.

Unfortunately my beau is in bed with a sinus infection but we did make it out for an impromptu couple of hours last night sans alcohol as he’s on antibiotics and I had the first stage of my root canal done yesterday… eek!

Apologies for the lack of quality in the photos – they were taken on my iPhone and my Mr ended up chopping off half my head in his sinus haze(!) I literally got ready in twenty minutes which is beyond quick for me but I was pretty pleased with the results:

Dress: Yours
Sheer cardigan: New Look
Leggings: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: New Look

And I also got to show off (again) one of my favourite ever buys from Lady Luck Rules; one of my favourite ever couples (Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin):

Despite having had the idea (and even name) for this blog several months ago, for some reason or another I’ve had a bout of writer’s block that’s rendered me pretty much useless on the internet, full-stop.

So here I am. A twenty-something, size 20(ish), ‘fat’ girl that enjoys maybe one too many maltesers but also has a keen interest in creating a style that suits which doesn’t involve tents, beige and linen trousers. Utter those three items to me and away you’ll be sent. There’s no room in my wardrobe for drab, thanks. I’m big, not boring.

Having always been ‘the fat kid’, I have struggled my way through fashion considerably: from adopting baggy t-shirts in an attempt to hide myself, to fully embracing Clarissa Darling’s ‘anything goes’ approach – both resulting in many a faux pas.

Cheap, cheerful and chubby, I’m hoping this blog will be a chronicle of my struggles and successes in a world where fashion still fails to fully acknowledge fat.
