A little mash-up of my thoughts!
January 20, 2011
Hey everyone. So its not a proper OOTD today, I just wanted to show you guys the pretty tights I picked up in Primark. Things like this is what makes me love Primark, they cost me a mere €3.50! I have always wanted bows tattooed on the backs of my thighs but its doubtful I would actually get them - now I can cheat a little by wearing these tights all of the time!
Lately I have been thinking about 2011 and what it means for my blog. I haven't gotten off to the greatest start so far - OOTD's aren't very often these days but I do plan on changing that once i'm better! If you follow me on twitter you will know that I have been unwell lately, a cold first and now some kind of bug. Unlucky, eh? Once I am better I will be back to updating regularly and with lots of pretty dresses since its almost spring!
Another thing that has been on my mind is the slogan of my blog - "a fatshion blog". When I first started blogging my intention was to make this strictly about plus size fashion but that has obviously changed a little. I am fat(and on the lower end of plus sized), but I get inspiration from all kinds of things and I shop at lots of different stores. Sometimes I will buy clothes from a plus size section and other times I will get the size large from the "normal size" part of Forever 21. Sometimes I will be inspired by larger models like Tara Lynn and others I will be inspired by thin women. I have readers of all shapes and sizes and I want every woman, regardless of her age or dress size, to be able to relate to my blog in some way.
I am considering dropping the slogan but then I think about the blogs that come to my mind when I hear the term "fashion blog" and they are not blogs written by plus sized gals and I don't feel like my blog is similar to those blogs at all. So i'm still very unsure what to do! Either way, I just want all of my plus size readers to know that we can take inspiration from thin girls and shop at regular stores too! Its all about finding what works for you and your body.
Lastly a big thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway. I am glad you guys liked the goodies I picked out! I will be announcing the winner in my next post so keep an eye out for that. I'm off to spend my night reading Russel Brands autobiography, can you believe he once looked like this?! Madness!
