Fatshion February, day 1: Glitter space cat

It’s Fatshion February, woo! Here’s what I wore yesterday to watch the Puppy Bowl with friends (including Maggie of Curvy Broke Fashion, whose outfit post you can see here). Maggie and I are always on the same fashion wavelength without even trying. 🙂

I wanted to wear something puppy-themed for the occasion, but I realized I didn’t have anything, so I went with the next closest thing: cat accessories. The clutch/makeup bag is too small to really be useful, but I brought it with me for pictures because it was so freaking cute and because it matched the metallic light pink of my headband. I was also wearing my favorite glitter eyeliner, Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal, but it’s hard to see it in the pictures. I’m wearing it here in Spandex, on top of silver eyeshadow, and I also have it in Midnight Cowboy and ACDC. I don’t wear it that often, but I really should because it’s fabulous.

Indie designer spotlight: LovelyMsLevecks

I found LovelyMsLevecks recently and fell in love. As the shop’s site says:

LovelyMsLevecks is a one woman operation specializing in one of a kind plus size clothing. I offer a little something for everyone. Whether you like punk, gothic, rockabilly or boho styles, LovelyMsLevecks has something to help you rock those curves!

The clothes feature so many stylistic elements that appeal to me: skulls, mesh, mixed prints, a girly-tough aesthetic.

They come in sizes 1x – 4x, and the designer, Aubry, also does custom sizing. She can even take a shirt you already own and alter it, which is a great way to get something new out of an old piece–and is also cheaper than her regular pieces.

The items are pretty cheap for hand-made clothes: $28 – $36 for tops, $24 – $44 for bottoms, and $35 – $66 for dresses. I highly recommend checking them out if you’re looking for something punky and unique!

The items featured in this post are:
1.) 2x cheetah spots and plaid top – $32 – I’ve loved the combination of leopard print and red plaid ever since I saw it in a teen magazine back in the late ’90s, so it always makes me happy to see them together.
2.) 4x skull print bib tee – $34
3.) 4x skull and stud capri leggings – $25
4.) No longer available – from the LovelyMsLevecks Facebook page – I just really love this one! And it’s possible that you could get one like it, since Aubry is willing to re-create sold-out designs as long as she has enough of the fabric.)
5.) 2x galaxy tunic – $34
6.) 3x pink spiders and webs top – $29 – This one reminds me of the ’90s too, in the best way! It would look awesome wih a black tutu, combat boots, and a ball chain necklace.

OOTD: Galaxy and glitter

Fashion blogger problems: you can have either a great background or someone to take your picture, but not both at once. (I do have a tripod, but I hate lugging it around, and I feel awkward using it in public, so I don’t end up using it often.)

So here’s a selfie in front of a mural, and the rest of the outfit pictures in front of my usual wall.

Pretty things I’m drooling over right now: dark florals and pink leopard

As the weather finally gets cool enough for cardigans and leggings, I’ve been eyeing warm-looking pink fuzzy sweaters and all things darkly romantic: lace, leather, tulle, dark florals. I’m also still obsessed with all things holographic (although somehow I haven’t managed to acquire any yet). What types of pretties have you been loving this fall, or spring if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere?
