Welcome back for Part Deux! I hope you enjoy my fatshion logo, that’s a German sculpture called Fett Gret, which translates to Fat Gretchen. And I think Gretchen looks great – so she’s become my fatshion representative.
Onto to clothing! If you haven’t noticed – I have a slight aversion to color in my wardrobe, unless it is outrageous vintage. If I am going for a more modern sleek look I choose either black or gray. Why? I love the simplicity and I love the potential for mixing and matching. If I could take a picture of my closet, the left would be filled with crazy brightly colored and patterned dresses, and the right is black tops, sweaters, cardigans, shrugs, etc. I also LOVE wide belts. It’s a ridiculous obsession of mine. My favorite big belt is a three buckle 4″ wide belt from Target. I have THREE of them, due to my intense fear that one will break or Hami will chew on it (which has happened!) I wear wide belts constantly – it’s a habit I am slowly trying to break, because I mean, I don’t know how many years I can hold on to this trend. (If I had it my way, FOREVER!)
So this morning, Torrid had it’s AMAZING 50% clearance sale, which I have been waiting for because otherwise I think Torrid is FAR too expensive for the quality of its items. (I mean seriously, $100 for a cheap dress?) However, I do like the versatility of Torrid – they tend to dress the models to look very young, but I picture how I would wear each item before making a decision, because I hate some of the outfits they put together. (Like tights with hearts on them and tops with faux necklaces on the neckline? What IS WITH THOSE?!) Also, the Torrid sale always sells out quickly, but since I get up at the crack of dawn for work, I luck out. Here is what I found and what I’m going to do with it. Descriptions and ideas after the cut!
