- I'm 5'4" and about 170lbs. I'm a size 12 in pants, a M-L-XL in tops depending on so many factors (namely, imaginary Female Sizing Charts), and a 34DDD/34F in bras.
- My measurements around are 38"/32"/42" so my butt is 4" larger than my bust, and 10" larger than my waist. Work it.
- Proportionally speaking, I have a short torso and long legs for my frame. There's only 8" between the bottom of my bra and my belly button. I have a 30" inseam.
- Most frequently, I shop at Value Village. I can't be spending $50 retail on a shirt I'm going to have to alter anyway - and there are literally thousands of tons of perfectly wearable clothes put in landfills every day, and cheap new ones fabricated in sweat shops. Doin my part.
Here's a few of my WAYWT (what are you wearing today) shots, and some bonus Petite Curvy models who have helped me figure out how to fit myself.
|Here I am. Take it aaaallll in.|
|Walking around San Francisco. Those flats are charcoal and sparkley! Those sleeves are too long. Gotta hem them.|
|I need to clean my shoes. But those shorts I hemmed and that shirt I widened the collar (can't stand crew-necks, they choke me and I'd be tugging at it all day like a nervous man with a tie).|
|I did this to show that larger people can put on the *exact* same outfit as a thin person and still not be immediately perceived as chic, simply because it's so much harder to look "put together" when you're larger. I still look bangin though.|
|apologies for my nasty ass mirror. Gross.|
|Obviously I'm a big fan of the nerd-shirt-under-blazer-with-jeans look.|
|Trying out my Power Look. Fierce.|
|Mimi G. I need to make this shirt.|
|Hilary Duff looking thick and fabulous!! Love that she flaunts those thighs.|
|She is so great. I just love her style.|
|See? Even Kelly Clarkson likes the nerd-shirt-under-blazer business. It's offically the best.|
