IMPORTANT FATSHION TIMEZ:
I’ve sorta hated florals for years and have rotated them out of my wardrobe because they don’t feel, well, tough enough. I’m 4’11” and fat and have a baby-face, and while I know theoretically that Short and Fat and Baby-Face can equal Tough As Nails, well, all of that plus Florals just feels a bit too… Dowdy? Cutesy? Like I end up looking either 8 or 80? My general go to outfits, even if they are very simple (like, a scoopneck tee & a denim skirt, which is generally what I wear if I’m not Gettin’ Fancy), are still Protective Armor-y Tough Femme Clothing.
But anyway, my point — this outfit, and this article, they are totally making me look at florals differently. Like, this person’s outfit in particular is BOSS. So maybe I can try wearing florals again?
This is kind of exciting!
My blog post on Hard Florals is finally finished. For the love of god, have a look at it before I lose my sanity altogether…
