The reason why I LOVE full skirts

In my post yesterday I stated that I am currently in LOVE with high waisted "full" skirts. I had a few of them a couple of years back (I'll dig into my old clothes and do a feature of them on here soon) and I enjoyed wearing them so much because I feel that they are the right kind of skirt for my figure. I love how they sit high enough to cover my belly, and boy do I have a lot of belly! It's just one of those parts of my body that I'm still working on accepting. So I enjoy these puffy high waisted skirts cos they can cover that part of my body and they just look great on big gurls.

Christina of Musings of a Fatshionista together with Brittney of Born in Sequins have reignited my love for these kind of skirts. They look SO good in these high waisted skirts they made me feel like I had to get myself one too. If you haven't been to either one of these blogs yet, be a darl and visit them, it will be worth your while!

Here's a few picture's of the ladies, they both have a great dress sense, and they definitely make being plus size cool.

Love the fullness and the color

I love her here, I love the pick-aboo of the bra and the vest. The skirt is a perfect finish

There go the puffy shoulders, so sexy.

This woman is gorgeous.

This may not be the puffy skirt I was talking about, but this high waisted pencil look is phenomenal on her. Look I'm straight but DZAMN!

I want to be this brave with my tummy, have it out this much and not be self conscious about it.

I've been fantasising about all the things I can't wait to wear in summer! For one, I'm currently obsessed with full high waisted skirts! I can't seem to find them anywhere! But I've decided that if I don't find one that makes me happy I'm gonna have one made. Not that I can't wear skirts now, but wearing skirts in winter is not as fun as wearing skirts in summer.

Crop tops are also on my MUST WEAR list for this summer. I already have a few of them, but I'm looking to add to my collections. But instead of buying this time, I think I'll just make my own crop top out of one of my old shirts, I was going through some of my favorite blogs and I saw on God Favourite shoes that it's possible to make one KICK ASS crop top. You can see her crop top here

I can already imagine this top on me. With my shorts, with skinny's, the options are endless!
I miss summer!


It's been a while since I've taken any outfit of the day pictures, simply because I hate winter. I always feel like I don't have enough winter clothing for me to put decent outfits together, but I know that's a lie because I did go shopping for some essential winter items, all I need is to be a little creative with my outfit choices. Bottom line though is that I would much rather prefer to hibernate during winter months and wake up in summer. I don't have a social life during this time of the year because I'm too cold to go anywhere and even i I do go out I'm grumpy. My routine is work, sleep and occasionally I'll let people visit me at my home. I hate the layering of clothes in winter, its necessary because if you don't layer you freeze your butt off! But the layering makes me feel extra bulky and tired.Nothing could make winter months bearable to me. I NEED for the next month to go as fast as it can. I hate winter!

Here's an outfit of the day, from Saturday I was hanging around with the gorgeous BF, like seriously, my BF is yummy! LOL. I should post pics of him soon.

I have received my first blogger award! This was given to me by the gorgeous blogger of Kurvy Kouture. I can't even begin to tell you how good this award makes me feel. It has really affirmed me as a blogger and made me realise that there are people who read my blog and enjoy it enough to award my efforts. So a very big THANK YOU to all the people who stop by this blog every now and then, and an even bigger THANK YOU to the gorgeous Voluptuous Vixen of Kurvy Kouture for giving me this award!

Here are the rules:
  • Link back to the person who gave you the award.
  • State 15 random things about yourself.
  • Link back to 7 bloggers.
Random things about me:

1. I believe prayer changes lives.

2. I'm scared of driving long distance, I have a phobia of car accidents. I'm trying to banish fear from my life though so one day I will get over this fear.

3. My one foot is smaller than the other, sometime I feel like one foot is size 5 and the other is size 6. But I get by.

4. I'm not a big fan of sweets, candy or sweet stuff, I prefer a rack of ribs, a stake over any dessert.

5. I LOVE reality TV. Desperate housewives of Atlanta, Brandy and Ray Jay Family Business, Basketball Wives! These are to me what sports is to men. Love them!

6. I'm a very good poet, like really, I used to get standing ovations when I was at varsity, I've always wanted to be a writer and I believe I have a gift of using words to paint a picture or tell a story. One day I will follow through on this.

7. My natural hair is long and thick, I'd like to wear my natural hair more often but I don't treat it well enough to be able to wear it everyday. I am really clueless on how to best treat my hair. The whole South African culture is like that.

I've run out of random things about myself. So I'm going to cheat a little and leave it at 7. Sorry!
