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.

Fatshion February, day 23: black, floral, and blush

Blog note: Sorry it’s been taking me a bit longer than usual to respond to comments lately. Between trying to keep up with Fatshion February and everything else going on, not to mention general winter exhaustion, I just haven’t had a lot of spare time or energy. But I appreciate all of your recent comments, especially the congratulations on my engagement post (squeeee!), and I will respond eventually.

I wish I had a commenting system like Disqus that would email people when I respond to their comments, but my computer sometimes has trouble with Disqus, and I’ve heard bad things from other bloggers who have tried using it. So for now, until I find a better alternative, I’m sticking with WordPress’ standard commenting system. If you check “notify me of new comments via email” when you comment, you should get notified of my response (although I can’t guarantee it since I haven’t tried myself, unfortunately, and you’ll also get emails about other comments on the same post).

This tulle miniskirt is an old favorite, from the straight size section at Target years ago. I love pairing it with black pieces and a matching floral hairclip. The hair flower is also old–in fact, it’s one of the first few flower clips I ever bought, and I still love it.

OOTD: Blushing at the Slutcracker

Last month I went to see The Slutracker, one of Somerville’s most awesome holiday traditions. It’s a burlesque parody of the Nutcracker, using all of the original classical music, and a variety of dancing styles from ballet to hula hooping to flamenco to pole dancing.

Of course I had to dress as over-the-top as possible to go see it (although I did remove my giant hair flower before the show started, so as not to block anyone’s view). I’ve been really into blush and black color schemes lately, so I put together as much pale pink as possible with some black sequins for balance.
