And here we go.. it’s Wednesday evening, which means Fatshion Faceoff time! Fatshion Faceoff is a weekly challenge that I do with 4 other fatshion bloggers from around the world, in the challenge we choose a similar item of clothing and we all style it in our own way. This week’s challenge was chosen by Dani, and she chose a colourful bag.
I do have a few colourful bags, but since I blogged the most colourful one that I own just a few weeks ago (here), I decided to raid my flatmate’s closet again ;). She has an amazing pastel shopper from River Island and I definitely wanted to borrow that. This means that my outfit is a pastel overkill, but hey, if I don’t get summery weather, I have to create the summery feel with clothes!
Bag: River Island (same in pink, similar) | Shirt: 20, George at ASDA (similar) | Skirt: 2X, Forever 21+ (similar) | Tank top: 16, Primark (similar) | Belt: XL, Dorothy Perkins (similar) | Socks: We Love Colors, Pastel Mint | Shoes: Jones Bootmaker – thrifted (similar) | Hair band: George at ASDA (similar) | Glasses: LensWay | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Cranberry (available in Boots)
(Wow, that might be the longest ‘what I’m wearing-list’ in the history of my blog :D!)
I wore this outfit to work yesterday, and it might surprise you that I have bare thighs under that skirt! I was testing this product to prevent the dreaded ‘chub rub’ and IT WORKS!!! I heard about it on Tumblr, at Chubby Bunnies FAQ page (thanks Bec!) and I wanted to give it a go. I HATE wearing shorts/leggings all the time under my skirts and dresses, so this product really is an answer to my prayers! I applied it to my thighs in the morning, did my commute in rush hour trains, walked to work from the station (half an hour walk), walked during my lunch hour, AND walked back to the station! And no chub rub!!! To be honest at the end of that last walk I felt just a bit of friction, but that was 12h after I had applied the product. So if I had taken it with me an re-applied before walking I would have been 100% fine. So after this test I feel that I have the obligation to let my readers know about this product, it is amazing, bye bye leggings during summer :)!!!
Ok, sidetrack done.. haha. Back to Fatshion Faceoff! Please visit the other ladies and see how they built their outfits around colourful purses :)
