I was invited to take part in a blog series featuring curvy ladies from around the globe. I would like to introduce you to a wonderful group of women who I will be blogging with on a week-to-week basis.
The theme for our very first week was Animal Print. And I will be totally honest with you, I own very little animal print. Actually, none of my clothing that fits is animal print. EXCEPT for a single, long-line bra from Lane Bryant. I am sure many of you remember going gaga for it when it first came out a couple years ago. I snatched mine up on Ebay last spring.
I've actually worn this underwear-as-outerwear out before. There is a photo of me somewhere on the internet featuring this bra, a long maxi skirt, but sans shrug at Toronto's Gay Pride last year. I, unfortunately, was not able to re create that exact look as it is not hot June weather nor is today an extraordinarily outrageous occasion. This time I am wearing the bra with a skirt that I picked up at a plus-sized swap in February and a long-sleeved shrug from City Chic.
As you may have noticed, my hair is still purple, but it is fading fast. I am trying to give it a break before it gets bleached back blonde so I have been repping the sock bun as often as possible. Do I ever love the sock bun.
And finally, possibly my favorite part of my outfit: the shoes. I picked these up at F21 a month or so ago when I went shopping with Crystal. They are clear jelly and studs -- hello, two of my favorite shoe-things!
