Fashion and fatshion are essentially the same thing to me. However, I will acknowledge that us fatshionista’s have to work 50 billion times harder to find decent and individual items compared to normal fashionistas. That makes us a bit extra special I think!
Fashion should be enjoyed. Enjoyed by the person wearing it and the people around them. I have a very serious job where I deal with a lot of emotional issues all day. I find wearing bright colors and fun items cheers both me and my clients up. It’s win/win!
My most favorite look is the Blair Waldorf look from Gossip Girl. I went through a stage where I never left the house without a headband. I have calmed down that restriction slightly now, but I still get a buzz when I realise I am wearing what Blair would wear. I nearly fainted with excitement the other day when a male friend admitted to watching Gossip Girl and saying that Blair had on MY jacket. Another of my favorite looks is anything involving colored tights and knee high boots. They are my current must have items for winter down here. I went to Prague for Christmas and was so impressed with how the Europeans dealt with the cold weather through their fashion and I noticed many of them wearing the boots and tights. I also love anything formal. If I can wear a big princess ball gown or a cocktail dress I will. Any excuse to dress up and I am there. It’s a dangerous and expensive habit.
I’m only a relatively new blogger, but I already find myself thinking things like “Oooh this photo will be good for the blog” or “This outfit will go great on the blog.” I think it is a fairly addictive beast. I do have one issue in that in the small town I live in (only about 2000 people) I don’t want them knowing about my blog due to my work. I’m wondering how long I will be able to keep it a secret there.
