Cardigan: New Look
Vest: Peacocks
Skirt: Vintage
Bag: Vintage
Shoes: Primark


One of my favourite bloggers, Rachele at The Nearsighted Owl, has put up an amazing size-acceptance post. The premise is that everybody should be proud of their size and shout it out from the rooftops. She is asking people to link a head-to-toe photo and declare their size to the world.

I actually found it hard to pin down my size. Right now I am wearing a size 12 cardigan, a size 14 vest and the skirt, being vintage, doesn't have a size. Then I wear a size 16 in non-stretch tops and trousers, unless they are skinny jeans in which case I have to upsize to an 18. I've just evened it out to a 16, though I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate. Who knows anything in these times of vanity sizing?

I've decorated with a super-tacky starburst shape that makes me feel like I should be sitting on the shelves of Iceland. If it's good enough for Kerry Katona... Actually, let's not finish that sentence!

It would be great to get some more blogging lovelies on board. Head over to The Nearsighted Owl, bash up your link and let's celebrate our awesomeness. Woooh!
