The end of this pregnancy must be dragging on for all of you popping in each week? I’m still very much in the thick of juggling outfits and trying to keep my style. My choice of wearable vintage items has been dramatically reduced now that I am so huge. So several garments are getting a couple of wears during the week and I’m just trying to play with combinations for fun.
I’ve also, very ridiculously been struck with the need to exercise my own fashion revolt. I was reading a blog post recently where the general consensus was tights/leggings (whatever you want to call them) are not pants. Then there were rules about colours and patterns and talk about body sizes etc. Good thing I can’t be told because what makes me happy and most of all comfortable at the moment given my heavily pregnant state, goes at present.
So here I am revolting against opinion about tights/leggings whilst pregnant and huge, wearing tights as pants and black and white stripes with a vintage floral blouse. Oh my what will the nay sayers and opinion givers of fashion trends say, oh I can’t bare to think about it.
Yep I’m be unusually antagonistic, but goodness me am I sick of people being dictated to. Sure if you like a look try emulate it and make it your own. If you have disdain for it, how about you give a nod to that fact that others a prepared to take risks you are not.
Oh whoops and here I am again this past week in the same blouse. I paired it with a pair of very lightweight crepe style pants that were in a case of clothing my friend was parting with. Considering I have very few pants or even skirts that are fitting me, I thought I’d nab them despite them being non-vintage because I was certain I could make them work. At a distance they have the look of animal or leopard print, which I was excited about because I think animal/leopard print can go with so much. But as the picture shows it’s actually a small floral design. So what the hell I thought floral can go with floral, I’ve done it before……..so hey presto and here I am.
So here we are I’ve had my ranty pants on, hope you didn’t mind the outburst. But you know sometimes you just really need to say it?
