To be honest I think that the fashion industry can be exceptionally limited a lot of the time.
I adore fashion and all things related but there seem to be a lot of brands / designers that just seem to cater to girls that are wealthy & stick thin with legs that seem to go on forever.
I’m not wealthy, or stick thin & I have very short legs for my body…Having said that, I have confidence in who & what I am and make the most of my attributes.
A lot of the time clothing seems to be made to follow the latest trends rather than garments that fit & flatter a women’s figure.With boxy styles or overly snug garments that are in “fashion” at the moment it can be hard to find garments that A) Fit & B) Flatter. I think this is a major flaw in the industry.
Being a full pear shape myself, I find it quite hard at times to find clothing that works for me. My bottom end is 2 sizes bigger than my top half & this can present a bit of a challenge at times. But I am aware of what suits my shape & dress to suit me instead of what is dictated by the fashion scene.
I think the most important thing to keep in mind is that fashion is an expression of self & is entirely up to the interpretation of the wearer.Regardless of your size you should wear what fits & flatters your figure & expresses your personality & sense of style!
I buy / wear garments based on their shape/ fabric etc; not based on the label that is attached.
A lot of the time we seem to be tricked into thinking that if we spend more money will look better – this is simply not the case. Price is irrelevant to style in my eyes.

Whilst I have been reading blogs for a while; I only began blogging just over a month ago & I have loved every minute of it. I have come across more people that I can relate to in a month of blogging than I’ve found in the duration of my life so far. I consider myself very lucky to have found a community of such inspirational individuals!
