I know i’ve said this before, but if you’d have told me 5 years ago, that I would be wearing pink and orange, without any black, I would have laughed at you and called you crazy. One thing that self accaptance and blogging has helped me do, is to not ‘dress for my size’ or to make myself look slimmer. Sure, I always like to look my best, but I’m fat, wearing black may create the illusion of looking slimmer, but I’m still going to be fat, so I am going to dress in what I want too, in what colour I choose.
While there is still so many fashions, trends, labels I’d LOVE to have available in my size, I feel lucky that there ARE options these days. It’s no longer all muumuu’s and baggy black clothing. We have body hugging, curve embracing, stomach baring neon clothes. Places like ASOS, Domino Dollhouse, Cult of California & Carmakoma. Australia is still somewhat behind in the movement, but luckily so many things are avilable online these days.
I’d been eyeing this dress for awhile before snagging it up in the sale, the only thing that put me off was the spaghetti straps. I hate wearing strapless bras, and while I do have small boobs could get away without wearing a bra, I don’t like leaving the house without one. Thank heavens for cardigans and such!
