But this post isn’t exactly about this dress, but about pictures of oneself sat down. I seem to be all about the not as commonly done with this blog. I fully intend to have make-up and standard fashion looks but for now here is a more Fativism side of Fatshion.
I would generally keep camera phone type shots to the Fat Femme Fabulous Facebook page but as I sat in a Primark changing room last night, waiting for a friend to try on interview clothes so I could yay/nay them, I looked in the mirror and realised how few photos of fats sat down there are. How I myself am not a fan of seeing myself sitting and instead of the nipped in waist and and straight legs, you gets a squished tummy and lumpy calves. I look *gasp* fat.
Here’s an acceptable view of me in the dress, size 22, worn in the third picture with this sheer lime longline cardigan from ASOS, size 18, which seems sold out in all but small sizes. As usual, phone + changing room = saturation hell but you get the idea. Not really worthy of a blog post shot like this, but as I said that’s not my full intention.
Nope, my intention is to be sat down, lumps and bumps on show, without the glamour of a boudoir shoot. So silly faces aside, I’m really not a natural model, here I am sat down with everything squished.
If you’re wondering about the hair accessories, they are from Temptress of Waikiki, the little, flowery, sister of Pearls and Swine. The Lucky Money Cat clip was bought by me but would be re-made upon request and Teddy Bear Ear and Bow headband is still available as part of the special offers £10 or less which Bink does monthly.
