Hello dears,

Sorry about the brief offline-ness! Am back and raring to go now!

A couple of weeks ago I got to hang out with one of my very favourite fat and fashion bloggers, Frances from Corpulent and Hey Fat Chick. She was as awesome and brightly dressed as I imagined, and we ate artery-clogging chips and talked about politics and Tumblr. It’s nice to know someone else gets excited when they receive a lot of notes! Haha.

Top: Carmakoma
Skirt: Carmakoma
Cardigan: Torrid
Glasses: Glasses Direct
Boots: Evans
Belt: Forever 21+
Bag Primark
Necklace: Primark

As always, I feel guilty as a fair bit if this outfit was gifted! I’ve mentioned the glasses and cardigan before now, but the ladies at Carmakoma sent me their sheer grey tunic, Hestrel. I absolutely love it. It’s funny, before it arrived I planned out this entire outfit in my head. Now it’s on I think it worked as well as any imaginary outfit could. Though I should probably do something with my hair…

Frances rocked her canary yellow Jibri jacket which is just incredible. Talking of Jibri and brights, have you seen their AW collection? Oh my gawd. Amazing!

    Just stumbled on your blog while googling pocket rocket (don’t ask) and you are FABULOUS. Don’t stop blogging, the world needs all the honest voices it can get. I like your style and how you document the ups and downs. Also, that top is cool.

    (I also blog, about life as a newbie London resident: http://rebeccataylorrt.wordpress.com. Drop by if that’d be your thing.)
