OOTD / 2 February 2011
Shorts: Primark *** Blouse: Primark *** Tights: Primark (20 denier, 5 pairs for €1.50!) *** Boots: Primark *** Bracelets: Forever 21

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. ♥

Come on, lets go, lets go little darlin', tell me that you'll never leave me. Come on, come on, lets go again and again and again. - Ritchie Valens (May 13, 1941 – February 3, 1959)

  1. Ahh I love this outfit! I've always been wary of pussybow blouses because I don't think they sit well on my chest but that one looks amazing on you and I love it with the shorts! I know what you mean about finding yourself wearing one particular brand; more often than not I'm wearing all H&M or something and I wonder if people think I'm a walking advert (they probably don't but oh well)
    Regarding the slogan for your blog, I'm another one of those who followed regardless, I really like your style so that's the main thing for me :)

    Oh how I wish we had a Primark in the States, or at least could online shop it! They have such adorable clothes!
    You are absolutely gorgeous as well.

  6. Love the boots!
    I like the slogan, it made me chuckle when I read it, I'd have followed anyway though.

  7. Such a lovely blog! I really like (and empathise with) your philosophy as you describe here -- "and while my blog may not be the same as other plus-sized blogs - I am still a plus sized blogger"

    I'm new to the blog-o-sphere, however I feel the same way.

  8. I think it is great that your blog appeals to all girls, that's exactly how a blog should be :). Also I share your feelings about gaping blouses. I have a big bust and a in a lot of shops particularly H&M I have tried blouses on starting at one size then going 1, 2, 3 sizes up but the bust still gapes, ah so frustrating :) x

  15. Like others have said, it's not about size sweetie it's your style and your writing that we enjoy. I think people are a tad gone in the head, if they just read a blog because of the bloggers size !? I mean wheres the point in that haha.

  20. Gorgeous outfit! I just started following your blog and legit have read the whole thing, such a great sense of fashion :)

  21. RIP- I didn't know today was the day. Sad.

    I'd still read your blog, and any other blog for that matter, no matter the size of the reader or the slogan.

    It is a tricky one, because you want to relate to people, but you don't want to seem as though you are making your size an issue, because in my opinion it shouldn't be one at all. OK, I'm a hypocrite because I'm kind of obsessed with losing 7lbs atm, but that doesn't mean that I think everyone should be "fashion thin" and that thin is the only size to be. And for the record, I think you look great, not that you need telling!! :)

    I really like that blowse- I have work experience at a newspaper in the summer and they want me in "smart office wear"- I need to be taking notes when I see such things. Primark you say... xxx

  28. As a non plus size reader, the slogan didn't put me off in the slightest. It actually me have a little giggle tbh, it's nice that you have a sense of humour!
    Love the look :) I have the same blouse and I think you've inspired me to actually wear it (the tags are still on!) because it's a lovely blouse, doesn't look Primark at all xx

  33. LOVE the Outfit!!
    I am just wondering... why do you say Primark? Isn't it Penny's on O'Connel Street? Or did they change it?
    Anyways... lookin lovely, dear :)

  35. @ Apanathi - well I don't live near O Connell St but yes they trade as Penneys in Ireland. That said, it says Primark on the tags of everything I buy in there and they operate in other countries (UK, Germany) as Primark. And you can't actually buy anything in there for "pennys" so I don't like to call it that lol.
    Plus a lot of my readers aren't from Ireland so they aren't familiar with the brand and if they want to search for whatever i'm wearing on eBay/google they will probably have much better luck by searching for "Primark so and so" than Penneys! xoxo
