Hi everyone, sorry about the lack of Wednesday Fa(t)shion Inspirations and Sunday Links posts last week! I’ve been in full-on wedding planning mode, and even though I’ve still been saving links and outfit posts, and taking outfit pictures, I just haven’t been in the brainspace to blog.
So I’m going on a semi-hiatus, which is to say: I’ll post when I can, and I’ll try to get through my backlog of outfit pictures eventually, but I may not always keep up with my regular weekly posts. After the wedding, which will be about a year from now, I should be back to my regular posting schedule.
In the meantime, you can still find me on Facebook, Tumblr. and occasionally Twitter. I hope you are all doing well!
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.

I wore this outfit to celebrate Chinese and Movies Day with my brother and a few friends. I would have gone with Steve to visit his family, but I couldn’t get today off from work, so I stayed in and had a traditional Jewish celebration. 😉
All of a sudden, it seems like the entire fatshion-o-sphere is wearing this pale pink tutu from H&M (which is currently sold out, but it’s come back in stock a few times, so keep an eye on it). It seems to run large, as it comes in sizes L – 3XL and fits bloggers who usually wear up to a UK 30/32 (US 28/30).
I am excited to see H&M make something that is both affordable and gorgeous in a wide range of plus sizes, and I really hope that they see all these bloggers wearing it–and see how quickly it keeps selling out–and realize that making more awesome plus size clothes would be good for their bottom line. I have not had much faith in H&M for a long time, especially since the plus size section disappeared from my local store, but this is a promising step in the right direction and I really hope they keep it up.
Here are the outfits featuring it that I’ve seen so far, all of which are fabulous:
On Saturday I went hiking with a few friends through the spectacular mid-October foliage. Since I’ve been so into dark mori and witchy goth looks lately, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to dress up in dark layers. (No, I didn’t stay dressed up for the whole hike–it was unseasonably warm, so I ended up taking off both my skirts and most of my jewelry and just hiking around in shorts. I also brought sneakers to change into.)
