i also found these wedges in a charity shop a month or two ago. i already have them in navy from last summer but these were the colour i really wanted (thanks to my big old clown feet they had sold out in an 8 so i bought the navy instead). i'm looking forward to pairing them up with these dresses next time the sun comes out.
last night we watched 'The Help', after reading the book i was really looking forward to seeing the film. it made me realise how much i love vintage fashion. the dresses were below knee length and women looked classy. maybe i'm old before my time but nothing annoys me more than seeing young girls with barely an inch of skin covered, and by young this even includes teenagers these days. nothing is being left to the imagination, class barely exists and i find it really sad. whenever the sun comes out you can guarantee at some point in the day i will be thinking 'i would never have been allowed out of the house wearing that', i thought parents wanted to protect their children's innocence?
anyway i guess my reason behind this post is that it doesn't matter what your style is as long as you're comfortable. peer pressure shouldn't matter (even though sadly it does). we will never be happy with ourselves if we're trying to fit in with others expectations of us. i've learnt this a lot over the last few years and my confidence grows the more i care about being myself and less about what others expect of me. so sorry dad, but there are more tattoos to come and the hair might get redder!
if you have any tips on buying lovely vintage inspired clothes for curvier girls please let me know, i'd love to hear from you!
