So, I've decided to start a blog of my daily "fashion". The problem is, I don't feel I have a personal fashion style. I waver between post-college, wanna-be boho, semi-hippie, and dressy. So, you know, across the board. I have a very curvy figure, and I wear about a size 18/20. I'm short, too, so all this combines to make it infinitely hard to find clothes that (a) fit, (b) look good, and (c)make me happy. Did I mention I was picky? So, I decided to start with an outfit that hopefully represents me a bit. This black jersey dress was great in the summer, but it's much too cold at the moment to wear it without anything else. So I layered the red shirt under it. Layering can be a problem for plus-size girls, but this worked well. In some of the pictures, I'm wearing leg-warmers, but they stumpify my legs a bit.
These pictures were taken by my friend Angela, at work outside the library. She convinced me to be silly for the camera, hence the picture where I'm making sweet sweet love to the bush.
The jewelry photo includes a necklace I made for myself, and my only ring, a spoon ring that I dearly love.
