I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Fatshion Post?!


Sometimes all we need for a swift kick in the fatshion pants is to hang out with a fellow rad fatty, steal their clothes, go thrift shopping and then, you know, like wear something! I was lucky enough to do just that on Tuesday, with Nicole of AWellRoundedVenture! We talked and talked and shopped and lunched and thrifted and talked and talked (mostly about the fabulous Kath of FatHeffalump and her loveliness)! It was a fabulous day in the East Bay, okay, it’s was hella hot, but it was still tons o’ fun! I got this top from Nicole who was getting rid of a lot of clothes and while it’s something I’d never have picked for myself in style and color, I put it on this morning and am loving it! I’m like truly happy and feeling all girly and femme (not usual for moi)!

Also, before heading out to hang with Nicole, I decided I needed to paint my fingers and toe nails! I haven’t painted my finger nails in over three years! I feel so pretty and special and sweet today! My MIL gave me her O.P.I. “Suzy Sells Sushi By The Seashore” before she left and I couldn’t wait to give it a spin! Not sure if I’ll give nail stamping a go (it looks incredible, but also time consuming). This was my first step towards a new whatever. Ha-ha! I’m in a great mood and just wanna share it with you! =0)

The top is Old Navy, the bottoms are cuffed Chinos from Avenue (two years ago?) and the flip flops are Skechers via Ross (they have sequins)! Also, my headband with the flower is from Ross.  If you have a Ross Dress For Less near you, check it out! Headband was $3.99, I bought four colors and love them and get compliments every time I wear ’em! Necklace is from Kohl’s, not sure of the brand. Glasses are from Sears, love them! They are lavender and have faint glitter throughout. Seriously, my bespectacled lovelies, check out your JCPenny & Sears for sales on your specs (2 for $100 when I bought mine)! And the smile? Courtesy of the afterglow of hanging out with the ever stylish and inspiring Nicole! Thanks gurl! You made my week! <3

    You look beautiful. That color really looks great! My favorite thing is the headband. You have inspired me to do something with my hair!

    @Missus Fahrenheit: Thank you! I am semi-known for my flower headbands now. I love them most when I’m not having a good hair day or just to add some pop to my outfit. =0)

    You look fabulous. And I don’t think its just the beautiful clothes and polish….– its YOU. You look happy and relieved and joyful. I think most of the pretty comes from you having unburdened yourself of a venture that was draining you.

    And PS if you need ANY help with stamping lemme know. I have 30 plates. (and close to 200 bottles of nail polish, for that matter) and some experience. Its a bit of a (coughObsessioncough) HOBBY of mine.

    @Shieldmaiden1196: Thank you! Yes, nail on the head! I’m happy and free!
    I would love your expert opinion/advice on stamping! For one, where do I buy the plates? Ha-ha!

    What Sheildmaiden said… about you, not so much the nail stamping since I don’t know how that’s done. But you, look at you being all hot and spiffy and femme and happy!

    BTW, you might not have chosen that color for yourself in the past, but you should definitely do so again in the future! The inner glow is the main thing, but that color makes it extra sparkly.

    You = pretty. So there.

    @Twistie: And how the hell am I supposed to respond to this? *Hugs*

    A hug is a lovely response, thank you very much. I like hugs!

    Do you actually think you look good? Really misplaced confidence right there.

  15. On August 26th, 2011 at 10:00 am Not Blue at All Says: I don’t believe I said anything to that effect. I did say that I felt fabulous. Certainly there’s no crime in that!

  16. On August 26th, 2011 at 3:12 pm Shieldmaiden1196 Says: is the best place to get the plates for cheap. And while they do sell special stamping polish for this, lots of cheap brands work. If you Google ‘regular polish that works for Konad (or stamping)’ and there is a big long list. I looked at a bunch of tutorials on YouTube before I started using mine.

    @Shieldmaiden1196: Thank you for the tip! I’ll let you know what I find or if I struggle. =0)

    I don’t know if you’re a fan of the Muppets or the Muppet Movie, but I have to share this because I’m just over the moon about it:

    I’m going to have to get one of the Miss Piggy colors.

    @thirtiesgirl: Oh my gawd! I love it! I love the hell out of those muppets, man! I am of an age that grew up watching the show, so Jason Segal’s passion to bring them back is near and dear to me (and i like him so much as well). Thanks for the link. Fave nail polish brand meets the muppets?! I’m dying!!!

    Awww, you two give me the warm fuzzies!!

    Love your cool, breezy outfit. Fantastic rich colour.

    @Kath: Thank you! I had never worn hot pink before and wouldn’t have bought it for myself. Luckily I grabbed it from Nicole’s giveaway pile and am now open to that color forever. I’ve even been told that I need to wear it more. People amaze me! Thanks Kath! <3
