Fatshion February, day 25: satin and tulle

I was going through my closet and realized I hadn’t worn this top in forever, so it was about time to wear it again. The tulle skirt is one of my favorites, although it’s a bit too big–if I’m doing a lot of walking, I have to be careful to keep it from falling down.

OOTD: Too much is never enough

plus size outfit hot pink skater dress and rainbow leggings

So you know that craft fair I went to, where I found I’m Your Present and fell in love? Well, I got a few things there, and decided I had to wear them ALL AT ONCE for my recent holiday party.

And then I thought, why stop with multiple pieces of large mirrored jewelry? Why not add a sparkly star crown and iridescent boots, just for good measure?

OOTD: Rocking my giant bow at Disney

plus size outfit with black star print dress and hot pink giant bow

I picked this giant bow for my trip to Disney both because I will take any opportunity to wear huge things on my head, and because it was the closest thing to the Disney aesthetic I could think of while staying true to my own style. The dress I picked because it’s comfortable, fun, and perfect for hot weather.

Outfit August, day 23, part 2: plaid, feathers, and rhinestones

After the beach, Steve and I went to my brother’s housewarming party. I didn’t really feel like getting dressed up but I did anyway, and I’m happy with how my outfit came together.

Outfit August, day 17: pom-poms and unicorns

After my awesome day of merriment on Saturday, the birthday festivities continued with brunch on Sunday. I like having celebrations spread out across an entire weekend so that I get a chance to see as many friends as possible, and it was lovely to see a few friends on Sunday who hadn’t been free the day before.

Of course, I went all out rainbow-pink-colorful, because why not?

OOTD: A fairy among mermaids

Last night, I went to The Cahd-fish Ball: A Mermaid Gala and Undersea Performance Spectacular. Since I only decided to go the day before, I didn’t have much time to put together a mermaid, pirate, or sailor costume, so I just went with what was easiest for me: dressing like some combination of a woodland fairy and a cupcake.

I meant to wear my fairy wings, but I had only an hour to get ready between work and the show, and I couldn’t manage to find them.

I am so, so, so in love with this dress. It’s a size smaller than I usually wear, because my regular size (22) was sold out, but luckily it lives up to ASOS’ reputation for running large.

Unlike most lace dresses that I’ve worn, the lace is soft and not at all itchy. Whatever this material is, it should be used to make every dress ever. Continue reading
