An OOTD, at last! I felt slightly weird in this outfit, possibly because i'm wearing Primark head-to-toe! It feels a little weird to wear just one particular brand. I haven't done online shopping in a while so most of the things i'm wearing lately are from either Primark or Dunnes (the only clothing stores we have here) I'm not too crazy about pussybow blouses, they are nice but peter pan collars are far more appealing to me! That said, when I seen this pretty nude-colored blouse all lonesome on the rack I had to have it. It was a size 18 too so I figured this was one of those "meant to be/a sign from God" moments. Its slightly too big all over yet there's still gaping on the bust. Dear clothing companies, girls with boobs like to wear pretty blouses too! I was finding it quite hard to pair this with any of my skirts so I went back and bought the shorts. It was either black shorts or khaki combat trousers, I think I made the best decision!
I had planned to have a mini shopping spree on ASOS later this week however we got the news today that our new landlord wants us to move in within four weeks, rather than the initial eight. Which is good overall but I need to buy new furniture, paint my bedroom and replace the flooring which is going to cost me quite a bit of money. I thought about using the furniture I have now for a while longer but I know deep down that if I move it into my new room I will just leave it sitting there forever!
The furniture in my current bedroom is awful, none of it matches at all. My closet is beech, my bedside table is pine, my clothes rails are chrome/grey, my bed is grey metal, my curtain rail is a very dark brown and I have electric blue shelves, add all of that in with my hot pink and lime green walls..its one not-so-pretty bedroom! I will probably purchase lower-end furniture since my budget is small but it will be fun to decorate a new room from scratch. I have considered charity/thrift stores however they don't have what i'm looking for. I'm really excited about it though, plus I can show you guys once I have completed everything. I know exactly what I want so hopefully it won't take too long to get it looking pretty!
Thanks to everyone who commented on my post a couple of days ago where I mentioned dropping the "a fatshion blog" slogan from my blog title. It was great to read other peoples thoughts and it helped me to make up my mind! Although it would be lovely to live in a world where blogs were all labeled equally, that's not the case. One non-plus sized reader said she would have followed my blog regardless of the slogan, which helped me make my decision. I'm not going to change/drop the slogan in the near future!
I may be on the lower side of "plus sized" but I still shop in the big gal's section, and while my blog may not be the same as other plus-sized blogs - I am still a plus sized blogger. With that said, I love that girls of all sizes can appreciate my blog. It warms my little heart so much to see all of the different shapes and sizes of the girls who follow my blog. Hopefully that doesn't sound too silly!
Lastly, a quick non-fashion related note to say that tomorrow marks the 52nd anniversary of the plane crash that killed some of my favorite musicians. I think it deserves a mention as their music still lives on and has inspired many of the bands and musicians we listen to on the radio today! On February 3rd 1959, a plane carrying J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly crashed into a snow covered field in Iowa. All three died, along with their inexperienced pilot. I love Buddy and JP but Ritchie Valens will always be my favorite musician. He was to the 1950s what Justin Bieber is to 2011, although a lot more talented in my opinion! They just don't make 'em like they used to. ♥
