Skater skirts and velvet crop tops are now available on Chubby Cartwheels! New items will be posted each week. Make sure to head over and ‘like’ our facebook page if you haven’t already for updates on new products and sales!
And like, everyone expects you to be cheerful and all that happy dappy joyous crap. But this is a rough time for some people (myself included!), so if you ever need someone to talk to or if you are thinking about suicide or hurting yourself, my askbox is open because I love you all and the last thing anyone wants is for you to be gone.
I hope that you would consider talking to me even if you’re a stranger. I will answer privately, or we can even skype talk or kik if you need to (as long as I’m not at work!).
And I promise that if I’m feeling crappy, I will reach out to someone too, because even just talking through a bad day can make it ten million times better.
Cheers not tears! Love you!
What I Wore: Thanksgiving in Maine
Ahh, there is nothing like being in my hometown of Portland, Maine. I was so grateful to be able to head up there to celebrate Thanksgiving and this is what I wore!
For this ensemble I threw together a handful of my current favorites, all of which have a leather aspect. The dress is from Asos Curve and is a major must! The tartan and faux leather jacket is via MYNT 1792. I capped the outfit off with my new Torrid boots that I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of on my blog!
Until next time,
Yeah, I don't drive either (we did have a car, but lets just say it never should have passed the safety tests) so I end up walking everywhere or taking the bus too :( Fortunately I'm never out very long since the bus stop is a 2 minute walk from my apartment and I live right downtown so everything I need is within a 5 minute walk. I've never heard of Thermaskin pants though :O I'll have to find myself a pair, they look like they'd make my walks a little warmer.
They’re AMAZING and Lands End is having 30% off everything right now and shipping to Canada is only $8! Lands End is surprisingly awesome for plus size basics and winter wear.
Make sure you size down when you order them, I’m an 18-20 and got the 1x and they’re huge on me, so I bought an XL this time around, hopefully they’ll be better.
I live in Canada as well and know how cold it gets, but I wear dresses all through the winter! (I don't have many pants since jeans are so expensive so dresses all year round it is!) I'll wear thick leggings with them and then a pair of thick tights over them, and if I have to go out I'll put on a petticoat and boots that go almost up to my knees so I don't freeze my bum off. It doesn't keep me totally warm, but it is good enough if I'm not going to be outside for very long.
Unfortunately I don’t drive so I’m usually walking or taking the bus everywhere I go, which means being outside for long-ish periods of time. I do find that my Thermaskin pants from Lands End help A LOT if I want to wear a dress.
Hahahahaha you’ve obviously never been to an actual cold place. Cause no matter how fat I am, the cold still freezes you!
Also, could you please have the courtesy not to swear on my blog? I try to keep my language as clean as I can.
One last thing. If I’m a crybaby for saying that I want to wear dresses despite the cold, what does that make you, anonymous person whinging in my askbox about how I’m too fat to appease you?
But it’s like -25C out and we’re buried under a foot of snow and all I can even think about wear is pants with longjohns underneath and sweatpants overtop so I don’t freeze to death.
Hopefully I can shoot a winter outfit soon for you guys. I’m tired of winter already and it’s just barely started. *sigh*
