I wanted my blog to be a combination of all sorts of things, including some fiction, food, fun, silliness and just my random day to day life. I started the blog so that I could work on my writing and organizing my thoughts. I hoped it would clear my head, and open up my little world a bit.
No fashion blogging happening here. I'm not as stylish as some of my fashion-blogging buddies. I've got limited funds for such things (though that really has nothing to do with the real essence of fatshion). I'm a staunch believer that one can be amazingly fearless and stylish on a budget. But I digress.
Nope, I'm not a fashion blogger. However, I've got some ideas for projects swirling around in my noggin. I'm going to learn to sew. Like, now. Well, in the next few weeks. Maybe by the end of summer I'll have the basics down. I'm hoping to start doing some upcycling with my thrifting finds, and perhaps expand my little online vintage shop. I'm feeling the need to get a bit more creative these days. I've not been too terribly happy at work, which shouldn't be a big surprise. My plan is to stick it out there for the time being, but to attempt to expand my life outside of work so I find what I'm needing. Ya get me?
I enjoy fatshion and fashion too. Are you wondering what fatshion is? Well, there's fashion blogging and there's fatshion blogging. I'm not even sure where to direct you to go first to find out more about fatshion, though you could start here. That blog is about a lot more than just clothes, though. I've linked to some of my favorite fatshion (and fashion) blogs on the right over there. I should probably start adding some more.
Here's what I'm getting to, slowly but surely. I'm going to start posting some fatshiony things in the future, including my own outfit photos as well as photos of others who inspire me. I'll also post some wish-list type things, too. You know, things I wish I was wearing, or hope to wear sometime in the future. I'm still learning, and I most definitely am not the most stylish girl in the blogosphere. My closet isn't over-stuffed by any stretch of the imagination. My style will be focused on thrifty finds and clothing from discount and second-hand stores.
I don't have an outfit photo to share today, but here's this:
I received this birthday gift in the mail today from my friend Richele of Studio D. Sneaky Richele went to my Etsy favorites list and got this for me! It's so special because of the DAD. I love it and am already planning the first outfit to wear with it! You can buy one or a similar one like this:
by visiting orangyredink at Etsy! I first fell in love with her stuff last summer when I saw a picture of Hillary of byhillary wearing that second one.
So just to clear things up, I may write a little bit about fashion, especially fatshion, but I'm not really a fashion blogger.
And this will never, ever be a diet blog.
