I see tons of blogs and articles showing what you’re wearing and decided today was that day day to reveal my crazy outfit. If there’s any day to share what I’m wearing, it’s today. It’s a bit mixed in patterns and isn’t something I’d usually reach for, but I was going for something fun. I also got a red wig in the mail that I ordered, so I decided to go all out on this one.
Black skirt, peter-pan neck top with a bow pattern on it, a short sleeved cardi on top, belted with a bow belt, polka-dot leggings and a red wig. Not my usual outfit, but I was feeling quite bold today and wanted to experiment. I don’t even care if the patterns match. I was feeling so quirky and fun today. I’m not even going out anywhere. I just love playing dress-up!
I’m a little too excited. Here’s why:
Yesterday I was feeling terrible in general. I had gained a bit of weight and felt ‘fat and ugly’. I have been also having some family drama that I didn’t want to be a part of. My mood was really low and I needed to get out. I met up with my good friend Laura to do some retail therapy. It never fails me, and I had some Christmas cash to spend. I also wanted to feel good about myself, so naturally I decided to stop into some clothing shops for something cute! Thankfully, there were TONS of boxing week sales, as I’m a fierce deal hunter and pretty thrifty. I went into two stores that both carried plus size clothing and ended up being thoroughly disappointed. I even tried on sizes much bigger than my usual size. One size is too small, the size up is too big, or too long. Feeling defeated, I tried one last shop that goes up to an XXL size only. I chose 3 things that I fell completely in love with, 50% off the lowest tagged price. I dreaded the change room so much. I got in, reluctantly took off my coat and shirt to try on the tops. To my surprise, the first one fit. So did the second and third. Fit like a glove! What the heck!! So I decided to rock it and go out to karaoke. Just a side note, I NEVER fit into peplum tops because they’re too long usually and I’m a short gal…I’m completely amazed and feel pretty great now.
