Day 269: After a Fashion

on September 25, 2012

I know I don’t exactly look it, but I am obsessed with fashion, the prints, the cuts, how an item can change a whole person’s perspective.

I’m by no means a clothes horse. I know what I like, and find it hard to find those things as what I like aren’t always necessarily what is en vogue. I’m not the slimmest of Jims, however, I am much smaller than I used to be. At present I am 5’11”, and  a size 22/24 with a 32″ inside leg.

I have a waist, but boob wise I’m lacking (well I am if you compare me to my other female family members). So as I was saying overall I am fussy. I know what I like, now finding what I like isn’t always an easy business. Especially when you are not exactly stock size.

I love blogs of people The Wardrobe Challenge and Arched Eyebrow to name just two that are out there. They chart their adventures in fashion in a way I wish I could. They take photos of themselves looking amazing and you can see their confidence shining through.

At best, I just feel awkward. Autumn is here and Winter is looming. For me it is a season of functional clothes. Leggings and jumpers mainly – leggings are a substitute for tights as they are that bit thicker, and I tend to stay away from denim when it is raining as it takes forever to dry out again and I’m not having several costume changes a day.

For work it is leggings and jumper dresses… I’ve just ordered this one my Joe Browns and I’m rather excited for it’s arrival on Friday. plan is to wear it to death!

Next year, I expect more clothes, jewellery and make up driven entries to appear on this page.


21 Day Challenge Update: Another day under my belt, it’s starting to feel a bit easier and not so much of a chore.

Today’s Activity: Eating soup (or should that be drinking?) with a fresh bread roll and Hart of Dixie on the sofa.
