All my life I've been extremely interested in fashion, but have always been a casual or quirky dresser. For as long as I can remember, my mother has nagged me to dress more like a grown up. As much as I hate to admit it,she is partly right. I've spent the last few months trying to refresh my wardrobe, and have discovered a whole world of fashionable fatties on the interwebs. These ladies are out there strutting their strutting their style and proving that big girls don't have to be frumpy or boring.
For your browsing pleasure I bring you some of my favorite fatshion blogs:
Tell me everybody, where do you go to find clothing inspiration, where do you like to shop etc? Post your favorite outfits (on your body or online), your favorite blogs, etc!
Hey Girls- I'll be attending a hoop retreat this summer and need some advice- Does anyone know if there are any plus size leggings out there that are decent. i got some at DOTS but they are of poor quality. Also any advice on shoes for hooping outside in the summer???
I don't want to look like every other hooper out there and know that some of the clothes that most hoopers wear look ridiculous on me . I like the flowy pants and tanks but donj't want to blend in necessarily.
thanks- Bozeman Mt doesn't have these stores- looks like Maurices for me which is cool I like a lot of their tops might have to get a custom outfit from Red Lunar
I'm talking to her now about getting a pair of flair capris like the ones sharnarose has in her newest video. I like my Desert Dancer pants, but they're full length and just too hot now that the weather is getting warmer.
We have a Maurice's here, which I hadn't even heard of until a little over a year ago when I needed a dress for a wedding I was attending. It's a cool store and I love the dress I got, but last time I went in (a couple of months ago) I didn't find anything I thought would be good for hooping. Maybe there's some new stuff now...
I'm revisiting this thread with a question: I need an outfit for my niece's wedding in October. She's doing a Halloween theme for the wedding and reception, and the event is costume optional. Of course I want to costume, and I'm thinking something pixie/fairy/elfish, but I want it to be both hoopable and modest enough for a family wedding; I figure why buy a Halloween costume I'll wear only once when I could buy new hoop clothes instead?
So, here's the question: Any suggestions for Etsy or website links where I can find the kind of clothing I'm seeking, or patterns to make my own? I have a regular sewing machine (no serger capabilities), and I can make something if need be, but it has to be hoopable (preferably cotton/spandex or something similar) and not too intricate.
