Puggy

I realise NOW by looking at my pictures that it doesn't do my new crop top justice. IT IS A SKETCHED DOODLE OF A PUG. It's existence brings me joy and amusement because 1) I love pugs, 2) I love clothing that has pugs on it AND it fits me. The new fit visualizer that ASOS now has on some garments comes real handy when buying from the ranges outside of Curve (so in other words, the straight size range) because it gives you measurements. And what do you know, this straight size crop top fits me just great.

But at the same time I'm annoyed because I bought it full-priced when now it's on sale for super cheap. Oh well! You win some, you lose some.

Trying out old favourites


My DSLR is out of commission right now (my batteries are dead) so I'm relying on my phone for now for outfit pictures. I don't think that makes too much of a difference -- of course I think the actual camera is much better than a phone camera, but I think for an iPhone camera the photo quality is not too shabby!

I wore this outfit to go out to dinner with Gab and my little brother. We spent 1 hour trying to figure out where to go until we all finally decided to go out to Indian food. We have our favourite Indian buffet but we wanted to go somewhere my brother hadn't tried before so we went to an Indian restaurant that we used to go to -- one of our favourites actually, but we no longer go because of how far away it is now. We were excited to go but when we arrived to the restaurant we were so disappointed by the experience!  What I remembered to be a great place to eat no longer exists. The buffet was not well stocked even though it was peak dinner hours, the place was dirty, flies were buzzing around, the door was not properly closed and so it was really hot in the restaurant. We were served by an apathetic waitress who was really absent. The food was not as great as before and my brother was really disappointed, haha. Needless to say we won't be coming back, which is a shame.

Red

When I wear any shade of red, it doesn't matter what form, I feel x10 better and sure of myself! I've learned from speaking to other people that it is also a colour that some people avoid wearing because it does draw a lot of attention to oneself. To me, there is something about the colour red that exudes confidence. Sometimes, I am a bit soft spoken (although it depends where you catch me, I tone down my personality at work to be honest), but at least I can show some of my true personality with what I am wearing.

I think of fire when I think of red, and people close to me have said I do have a firey personality which is fine by me. I do love me some fire... it's my favourite element. Plus, fire smells good when it's in bonfire form.

I decided to complete the look by adding my bitchy necklace. I am after all a fat bitch, haha. Seems fitting!
