Day 10, I found myself a twin
Today is brought to you by the color purple and the magic world of Ross.
So remember how yesterday I talked all about "check it from behind?" Well that was some wise advice if I do so say myself. I originally envisioned this outfit with some lace tights. I put on the tights, put on the tunic and checked the mirror. It was ok from the front, but when I turned around it was completely indecent from the back. COMPLETELY indecent.
Now I already got some shit at work that this is more of a tunic than a dress, but I already explained that when you're working your way through 90 dresses you've got to give a girl some wiggle room.
So on to the deets. Dress/tunic is from Ross and is a 2x. As I've said, here's the funny thing about sizes. I own another dress by this label in a large that fits me just fine. So it's the same brand and it's a bigger, flowier dress and yet I'm wearing it in 3 sizes bigger. This is why you must always try it on.
Leggings are in my opinion a fattie's best friend (other than KBM that is). The leggings are Danskin and I cannot say enough good stuff about them. I've tried a million different brands of leggings and none hold up as well as Danskin. Boots are from Evans and someday soon we will have a very long conversation about fat girls and the hunt to find boots that fit our calves but I'm too tried to do that right now.
I'm wearing 2 necklaces. The glasses I got at a stall in Camden Market and the purple vote necklace I shockingly had custom made from Brookadelphia. Brookadelphia makes some great stuff but I'd be hardpressed to actually recommend them to someone. I custom ordered my vote necklace last December after buying several other pre-made pieces at the Bust craftacular. I paid in advance and was told it would take up to 4 weeks. It ended up taking over 3 months and they didn't respond to my emails. I had to stalk them on gchat in the hopes of getting an answer from them so now I wouldn't really recommend them.
Finally I need to show off my twin. My co-worker Nicole saw AH in the bathroom and told her to run over to my office because we were twins. It was really funny when we saw one another. AH's top is from Urban Outfitters and pants are from H&M. It was the second coincidence of the day. Earlier I had run into someone from high school walking out of my office building when I was running in, in a mad rush, already late to a meeting (I am not a morning person). Whoever says NY isn't just a small town has obviously never spent time with me.
