Trendy Threads for The Curvy Chick

If you haven’t figured it out yet (You’re REALLY slow if you still haven’t noticed this) I’m short and round! This means society has fit me into cute little headings like “cute and chubby”, “big and beautiful”, etc…etc…

God lord….

Anyway, I decided a long time ago even though I didn’t win the looks/weight lottery I could still work around what I do have and try to glam it up as much as humanly possible (this stuff takes alot of work people! Hours actually!)!

Thankfully a few select shops have remembered us small, round chicks and decided that it was a good idea to invest some time into creating clothes for us! PHEW! Saved! One such shop goes by the name of Torrid! Thank you Torrid for remembering that all girls are not created equal and some of us are height challenged as well as blessed with wobble and jiggle! Torrid appears to want to keep the select few of my species happy by creating trendy little fashion bitlets for us!

Now Torrid is a problem for me, Yes Yes Yes! I know you’re asking yourself why I am already ranting when just two seconds ago I was raving! The problem is when I go into Torrid or happen to wander onto the website I end up coming away with more clothes that I don’t possibly need! I already have enough clothes and shoes to keep a small village warm for a few years! Adding more to that pile is pretty much like suicide!

Today, as I was happily sipping my cuppa, my genius, witty, clever mind decided that it might just be a good idea to have a look at Torrid’s website. Why not? What could it hurt? My feeble little mind convinced itself that since I’d be going to England either in August or this fall (hopefully sooner than later) I’d need new clothes! Now I never need an excuse for purchasing new clothes, shoes, accessories, or make-up but I had promised myself to calm my little self down and take a deep breath before purchasing stuff I don’t need! Now this never works as the little voices inside my head are strong with the force.

However, today the force was quite heavy and it convinced me that I did indeed need to have a few little items for my upcoming trip!

My tiny, really small, ickle, little order:

506687 hi
It’s rare that I like to wear a dress but occasionally you’ll see me flirting around with one! This order included quite a few dresses that I’ve been wanting to buy forever and today seemed a good day to do it!

561968 hi

563891 hi
Oh My God! I wanna twirl in this!

564637 hi

581540 hi
I already had the stockings, might as well get the skirt!

586142 hi

587991 hi

599911 hi

The moral of today’s blog kids is even if you’re a larger lady you can still have fun with your looks and be as fashionable as your heart desires (contrary to what society and the surgeon general says)! Work with your mama gave you!

Now…I need some new shoes…Hmmm……

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

You know that adventure we take every season into the darkness of our closets? The ones where we pull out all our winter clothes and make room for our spring and summer ones?

Well this year during my plunge into the darkness of my closet I had told myself…promised myself….that I’d not buy another pair of shoes for a really long time! As I tore through my closet I came upon shoe after shoe after shoe after shoe….I have enough for everyone in the US by now and maybe a few extra pairs for people living in Europe!

This weekend I took Mai to the Palisades Mall and my strong will to not purchase any shoes…somehow…left me!

I’m thinking that since they are cute shoes I haven’t REALLY broken any promises to myself right? I mean technically if it’s cute that eliminates the need for willpower and any promises made are void!

My weekend haul:

Soooooooo Sexy! These are my total fav of the lot! I have a similiar pair but these have more strap to ‘em!
Picture002 400x300 6

A perfect size 7! Very geeky shoe moment but I adore these! Will go perfect with my “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1″ T-Shirt

The Virtues of Black and White

My mum always proclaimed the virtues of wearing white in the summer yet never in the winter! And black in the winter but never in the summer! It seems in her book this was some sort of unwritten law and must be abided by at all costs!
Bloody hell she’s bound to be unhappy this spring/summer as black and white have decided to have a happy marriage together this season! Frocks, capris, blouses, and shoes! Doesn’t black realize it should be hibernating in the back of our closets?

Now, growing up, my mum’s rule seemed golden and sensible! Black is a nice color but I much prefer lighter colors come summer so her “law” molded me and when the warmer weather was upon us all my browns, blacks, and darker colors were pushed deeper into my closet for a long rest while my brighter, lighter shades came out to play after a deep sleep.

This morning I woke up and I combined white, black, and silver! Tis 75 degrees out and I broke the law! The fuzz are sure to come knocking at my office door today, pick me up, lock me up, and throw away the key!

The horror of it all! How could I do such a wicked thing!

But I must say that the runways have got it exactly right this season!

The combination of black, white, and silver boggles my little mind! I’m quite happily wriggling around in the following stunning items darling:

Just don’t tell my mum ok? I’ll deny it all if you do!
