Can you believe it? It's Christmas in a few days. Tomorrow, I embark on an airplane to go to Quebec! (Yes, I know, I keep mentioning it but seriously. SHOPPING TIMES IN MONTREAL! Woo hoo!) Anyway...
Top and Boots Evans | Pants GabiG Korea via eBay | Scarf F21
I bought some stuff from Evans and I'm just gonna give a little review. For those who don't know Evans, they're a UK company who offers plus size clothes. A lot of their stuff is really cute and on trend, at least in my opinion. There's some who complain it's too edgy or too frumpy, but it's not the case for me.
My boyfriend bought me two pairs of boots for my birthday present last month. This is one of them. It's REALLY comfortable and if you have really big calves I don't know if it'll fit too great. I have 18 inch calves and they're the right amount of snug worn with my knit black pants. Also, on the website, it looks a lot more of a lighter brown than in person. It's kind of a milk-chocolate colour instead of the cognac colour I was expecting. But oh well, it's still pleasant.
I also got this oversized top from Evans. I LOVE IT. Right length for me and I love oversized baggy stuff. I don't care if people tell me it's a tent or whatever. Seriously, screw the "rules" for plus size women. Fashion shouldn't be about rules and it should be about wearing whatever you want to make a statement.
I posted on the Evans FB wall with one of my pictures recently and apparently it offended people because I was *GASP* wearing SUCH a short hemline! The thread in question is here and it still brings me a good laugh. How ironic it is that the ones who are most fatphobic are some of the people who are fat themselves or plus sized! How baffling and hypocritical. Instead of taking big leaps forward to fat acceptance these kinds of people bring it many steps backwards. Disappointing, pitiful, but I digress.
Anyway! I'm still not done packing. :( I gotta continue to pack. But I just wanted to share my outfits and my thoughts on the FA community.
To end this entry, here's my nails. I love 'em. I used Joe Fresh Mint varnish and topped it with Nicole by OPI "Have a Heart" topcoat and glitter. Look at the little hearts! Hehe.
