Sorry I keep skipping days, guys. If I don’t do this in the morning it’s incredibly hard to remember to do it before I come home and change immediately into sweatpants.
I took these pictures at work. Very boobalicious today, and I felt like a badass. I’ve been wearing my hair straight for the past few days. I like the change.
V-Neck Tank: Old Navy (L)
Black cardigan: Mossimo from Target (XXL)
Black belt: Target (2XL)
Tulle skirt: Xhilaration from Target (XXL)
Black overpriced but soft leggings: GAP (2XL, super roomy too)
Black boots (not really pictured): Avenue
I bought the ring off eBay for like $5.
You look KILLER. That skirt! That belt!

Ashley is in a band called the Hollow Walls. They had a show tonight and this is what she wore to sing her fucking heart out. Seeing her perform is really magical. There are always goosebumps, tears, lots of love, and afterward we sit there, awe-struck by her mega-talent and sassy wayz. Check them out.
Love what is happening here SO MUCH.
i actually got up at a reasonable time this morning, so to celebrate i got way overdressed to go to breakfast with my dude. i was overdressed fancy-wise, but underdressed weather-wise because holy shit it is not spring that this is a spring outfit.
full disclosure: the dude guilted me into taking my silly hat off before we left because he said i looked like a dork. I DON’T CARE!
hat - antique shop in a cute little town
dress - etsy
cardigan - thrifted
green tights - kohls, i think
not pictured: same payless boots i wear way too often, a rad necklace that i put on after this picture. you’ll just have to imagine both :)
That dress is STUNNING.
Fatshion February continues - I missed yesterday, but I was in my pjs most of the day and then changed into a t-shirt and jeans for the Super Bowl, so nothing exciting there.

SNOW DAY!!!! WOOOOHOOOO!!!
It’s so beautiful out.
Dress- Anthropology. This is one of my favorites right now. It’s thick cotton twill type fabric and I was excited to not have to take it in around the middle. After a little inspection, I could take the boobs in some to give me a little more lift, but then I couldn’t fit my removable silicon pads if I felt like bein’ busty :-)
Sweater- also Anthro. This is called my “Mary Poppins” sweater. And I feel just like her in it.
Boots- Merrill. waterproof badness
Tights and leggings and wool socks, Target
Slip- Thrifted and resewn to fit me. I have never found a slip that fit me, especially in the boobs. Note that what I had to do to make this beauty work for me was take in under the bust all the way across by about 1/2 to 1/4 of an inch (not as much between the breasts). Then I took the sides in from armpit to a little below the hips by 1/2 an inch on each side. Keep in mind that when revamping your slips, PIN and be sure you are about to sew right before you sew. You can’t erase mistakes on slip fabric.
Off to the snow I go!!!
I love everything that’s happening here.

I’m hoping that this project will give me the motivation to dress better on a day-to-day basis, instead of rolling out of bed in the morning and throwing on my standard work uniform of slacks and a sweater.
