It feels so good to be back on track with my little blog. I never knew how good it felt to get things from one's head to the cosmos. I don't know why I didn't keep up with this when I first started a year back. I noticed when I do keep up with posting, I become more creative. This particular outfit was inspired by my a video I had watched from Juicy Tuesday. I don't know why I keep getting sucked in to YouTube. I have a love/hate/love/hate relationship. It's a huge way to waste my time. I learn some tricks, but I think it's me just being nosey. Regardless, I seem to feel something whenever I watch them albeit anger at myself, the "guru", or the comments. At times just the idea of watching people so absorbed with themselves leaves me feeling filthy. I mean, I'm watching someone get ready to go out, I swear I'm not a peeping Tom. Maybe a Billy NoMates, but I am blown away by how much time and effort it takes to make videos. Shane Dawson is really epic. I am guaranteed to get the laugh when his character Shanaynay makes an appearance. I digress. I was watching Juicy Tuesday and she had mentioned people had slagged her weight for posting her outfit of the days. I love those tutorials the best! I think I've sorted out how to (insert icon, celebrity, cat eye, smokey eye, red lips, flawless face) looks for several lifetimes. But, my wardrobe could use a bit of help and I am not short on clothes, but short on ideas, so these how to nails, hair, shoes, purse, videos are really the business for me. Teresa *aka Juicy Tuesday* has a womanly figure. She has that hourglass and whilst I'm no where near as lovely or gifted, I quite like having curves and seeing other women who have arses as well.
I got this skirt from F21 for $14.80 USD! It was on clearance and I initially thought it was a blouse. I liked the corset in the front and thought it would look great with a pair of jeans to go to a sporting event that has still yet to happen :/ Well, I was looking for something one day and this was in a pile with the tag on it so, I was curious to see if it would fit or go with the "recycle" stack. I noticed the tag read skirt and got quite nervous. I know my hips have grown, but ah well...I put it on with the corset design in the front and it had a tag (medium) so, I turned it and fell in love. Sort of...the corset is the cutest detailing; however, it does scream "look at me" in the lower region. The place where I carry my weight most. So this was the look
I paired it with my trusty Mary Janes, black opaque ribbed tights, and a shirt I bought at the Crossroads. It's less than $20, total, but I neglected to accessorize appropriately. Odds are my jewels are in my coat but I was too lazy to put them on.
