Not really sure how I feel about today's outfit. I had this vision in my head and it's not really the same in reality. Once again please excuse the crappy toilet photos.

I saw this top on ASOS Curve and immediately fell in love with it - except it doesn't really look like the picture on me. It's very long at the back - which is good for my massive bum, but I worry it's a bit too smocky for me. I'll probably try it with some skinny jeans next time and see if I fall in love.

The trousers were another ASOS Curve purchase. I'd hoped they would be a bit shorter in real life - more of an ankle grazer, and they are quite roomy so maybe I could have sized down. You can't really tell what they look like in the first photo. I look like a vision in black.

A close up of the trousers - I love the idea of them. Maybe just not them so much.

My current favourite necklace.

You can see the length of the top here - and quite how roomy it is. I reckon a couple of us could sleep in it one night.

Oooh - and I've gone wavy today. This is definitely an "I didn't want to wash my hair today so I've disguised it with Dry Shampoo and Curls" look (oh and I won't smile either, because I'm just too cool).

A leopard can change it's spots...

I'm loving New Look Inspire at the moment, a new store has just opened near my office and I seem to be spending every bloody day in there at the moment. I was lusting after this leopard print top on their website for an age so I had to purchase when I was in there last. 

Please excuse the messy hotel room. I seem to lose the ability to be tidy when I am not at home.

These jeans from ASOS curve are my current wear with everything. The quality is not amazing though, they are starting to wear a little between the thighs (my problem area) so I might need to purchase another pair soon before I am flashing too much flesh.

I may need to rethink my photo strategy - perhaps the toilets at work are not the best location for showcasing my outfits. It'll have to do for now. I really like this dress - this style is really flattering for someone like me with extra large hips and backside. This is a size 18 - makes my boobs look massive, but generally I'm not complaining at that.

Check out this new site if you want to get a bit more recognition for your blog, sometimes it feels like we are all talking to ourselves, right?

A new blog

I thought perhaps instead of cluttering up my (ahem) diet and fitness blog with my fashion ramblings, I'd start a new blog here. I don't expect many people to follow this as it's generally just going to be me posting dodgy photos of me in various outfits - trying to be as stylish as I can as a plus sized girl.

Although I've been dieting for the past 4 or so years (on and off - I like the yo yo approach) my ultimate aim is to lose a few stone which would still see me around a size 18, therefore still plus sized. I've a vast wardrobe of clothes and I'd gotten into a massive rut of wearing the same old rubbish daily - so lately I've been trying to be a bit more stylish.

I've been following a number of so called Fatshion blogs for a while now and they all inspire me to try new things. So here goes.
