I'm not the best blogger, now am I? I've gotten a little worse at blogging throughout the week, and a little better at wasting time. Now, I read a lot of political and fashion-orientated blogs, but I don't consider that a waste of time. Things like FML, Comixed, Fail Blog, Passive-Agressive Notes and Tetris, however, are all huge wastes of time. There is no way around it. I consider myself a lover of witty humour but I admit to having actually laughed out loud at many "fails" and "lols" this week.
First up is something I wore this past Monday. I wasn't sure about this shirt and whether it fit or not. It fits in the way that I can get it on, but it's kind of snug. Bad snug, or just feminine-fitting t-shirt snug? I much prefer over-sized/loose-fitting tops (is this personal preference or fat-girl insecurity?). I threw on this American Apparel cardigan because it was the closest cardi in my reach, but I thought the lilac and teal went well together. The cardigan fits me in the arms/shoulders/back but I can't button it up over my stomach. That's alright, I'll wear it unbuttoned! I doubt I'm the only fat person who does this.

I haven't worn this dress out yet because I can't bare to pair it with tights and boots, but I couldn't wait a minute longer to show it to you. I was in Pennington's for only a few minutes during their after-Christmas sale and saw this dress. I'd never seen it in the store before, they only had one, it was in my size, and it was only $8. The fashion gods wear clearly staring down on me that day. I love the retro feel with regards to the shape and the itty-bitty polka dots. As you can tell, come Spring, I plan on pairing it with flats, a colourful cardigan, and a statement necklace.

I feel a little goofy (but still fabulous) for playing "dress-up." Oh well. ♥
