#FatshionFebruary, day 22: more dark floral

Because there’s no such thing as too much dark floral.

This outfit illustrates the ridiculousness of the weather we’ve been having lately. It was in the 50’s yesterday, warm enough to go out with bare legs and arms–but there were still slushy areas on the sidewalks, hence the snow boots. New England, I’ve lived in you my entire life and sometimes I still don’t understand you.

top: Dots, skirt: SWAK, jacket: Torrid via clothing swap, snow boots: present from my mom, hair bow: Target?, necklace and earrings: Domino Dollhouse, sunglasses: Sweet and Lovely, bracelets: Deb, Torrid, and So Good

I’m so in love with this pleather jacket–it will be one of my spring wardrobe staples, for sure.

OOTD: Girly tough

I’m really not sure about this jacket. I love how it looks on me, but…it’s not soft. And I am really particular about the comfortableness of my clothing (which is why I’m always stealing Steve’s ridiculously comfy Rainbow Dash hoodie).  I’ve been thinking about selling it for a while, but I can never make up my mind.

Pleather jacket and round stud wristband: Macy’s, shirt: Old Navy, jeans and rhinestone necklace: Target, fascinator: WhichGoose, spike necklace: eBay, earrings and rose ring: Claire’s, pyramid stud wristband: PacSun, bangles: Torrid and Deb, heart ring: The Toy Chest

Flashback: Girlfriends L.A.

Back in middle school and high school, I loved catalogs. I spent hours pouring over Delia*s and Alloy, but sadly, none of their clothing came in my size.

Enter Girlfriends L.A., which made clothing up to a juniors 25/3XL. And even had plus-size models (and a more diverse group of models in general).

I bought a bunch of shirts, including the Tinkerbell shirt that you can see in this post, and wore the crap out of them.

Unfortunately, GFLA no longer exists. But I’m still thankful to them for making early ’00s funky fashion available to (at least some) fat girls.

Flipping through the catalogs today is an exercise in major fashion-stalgia. I’ve scanned a few pages so you can share that experience:

Getting this in the mail? Always exciting.
