"Fatshion" February Roundup.

For the last month, I've been a rather sporadic participant in Fatshion February on my Tumblr. For those who are wondering what the fuck I'm talking about, Fatshion February is essentially a month dedicated to Outfits of the Day (OOTDs) from people who identify as fat. Anyone over a size 12 will probably recognize the fact that appealing plus size clothing is not exactly easy to find, so having a month like this is EXTREMELY helpful in finding new places to shop/new styles to admire. Before I became aware of and entered the Fatshion community in my late teens, my wardrobe largely consisted of whatever I could squeeze my ass in from Kohls that didn't look too terribly matronly. Since discovering the community, my life has honestly changed for the better. I'm not afraid to take risks with my wardrobe; I have a whole new arsenal of things (that fit me!) to add to my wishlist; I've gained friends and a sense of community that I had never quite had before and I'm now aware of so many great resources that help me in expressing myself aesthetically. It's, truly, been a great thing.

Mushy infomercial-like stuff aside, here's the outfits I "contributed" this year! Hopefully, next year, I'll actually do it on the daily (and using a proper camera and not my webcam aka my go-to lazy method of choice). We'll see!

  1. I found your blog through the Fatshion! Facebook group. I love the idea of a fatshion budget blog. Mine is budget centered too, for the most part (I do splurge occasionally). Also, I really wish there was a K-Mart where I lived. I remember them being around as a kid, but I haven't seen one in forever!
