Monday, August 20, 2007Beth Ditto is not my muse.
It is hard being fat and fashionable. I'll concede that I'm not exactly Miss Ditto, but if I keep going the way I am now, it won't be long. I'm sort of that awkward shape between normal and "curvy" which looks shit on anyone smaller than 5'8, and I'm 5'4. It makes dressing difficult because you try on a billion things and end up throwing on skinny jeans and a t-shirt just to make life easier. However, I've come across a few pictures which have made me realise that I'm on a slippery slope to boring land.
This frighten me because they are older than me and also once-upon-a time, I cared about what I looked like too. I may not have been as well dressed as them but I made an effort. I also have a ginormous collection of unworn and unloved clothes which are crying out to be worn, and it's no longer a surprise that my mother asks me whether I want to give them away to charity because I never wear them. But, it stops here. I've decided to wear a different outfit everyday for at least week (I'm breaking myself in) starting today - even though all I really have to do is go to the library and make a quick run into town ( I don't have a life until Wednesday at least.) 14 comments
