Vixen Pixie at Bad Reputation


So last night was the last ever, Bad Reputation. I wanted to change my look a little, so decided to go all Black, booby and tight! I accessorised with a pop of colour in the form of red lipstick and the most wonderful headpiece from Pearls and Swine. I have had this headpiece for the longest time, and until last night, couldn’t find an opportunity to wear it.

I love this look as it’s a bit Goth with a few feminine touches (sorry about the lighting):

Myself and Kirsty had the biggest fit of giggles due to me having my picture taken in the toilets…..and in front of bog roll- keeping it classy ‘til the bitter end ;p

This bodysuit was so comfy!

I love this headpiece! It’s so fun and classy at the same time

Headpiece: Pearls and Swine
Bodysuit: Simply Be
Pencil Skirt: Very
Shrug: eBay
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Boots
Lipstick: Rimmel (Colour: Starry-Eyed)

I’m a loser, so was far too scared to go up to the Bad Rep team and thank them. Thank them for creating a safe environment for people like us to meet, have fun and dance with sheer abandon (the only way anyone should ever dance).

It’s so important we have more events like this; we ironically live in a “modern” society where people like us: the queers, geeks (to which I am a proud one!), misfits and fats (me again!) are looked upon with distain and constantly misunderstood. Having a place where we can support and encourage each other is exactly what Bad Reputation is/was- this will be their legacy and they did themselves proud! Can’t wait to see what they do next. Also, many thanks to them for the wonderful gifts of a mixed CD and Zine- too kind!

I had a brilliant night and danced my awful dance, and sung with a full heart : )


‘Til next time folks!

  1. I love that headpiece on you. You are just so beautiful. I really like the latest post. I really started my site as a catharsis of sorts and strange enough, I started believing all the fat activists and bloggers that said to just live your life as you are now. Don't wait to lose that 20, 30 and 40 pounds.

    1. Thank you so much! I love the headpiece too, and definitely love that you have now reached a stage where you feel good about the person you are! It is hard sometimes and everyone has bad days, but know that there is a community who is always here to love and encourage :) x

Success

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic? Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where s

The plus-size world of the vintage persuasions audibly exclaimed when Georgina Horne of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust , announced a range of fabulous dresses she had designed for  Lady Vintage London , called Lady Voluptuous . There are four styles in total with a variety of colours and patterns, and being a 50s bunny who practically lives in swing dresses, I immediately set eyes on the Cosette , particularly after seeing Lucia in it. WOW, right?! But there was another dress that was catching my eye.....enter, the Medusa. The Medusa is another 50s sensation, but a fitted design. I have been hoarding wiggle/ fitted dresses in one of my two wardrobes for a few months now and realised how much I loved my silhouette after wearing this 'out of comfort zone' dress. I'm naturally an incredibly curvy (I know many hate that term, but I know what I mean) woman, but I have often avoided dresses like this through fear of the VBO; but during my continued journey to self-love a

When a photo shoot is about more than just the pictures

There have been a few things that have made the last year and a bit, difficult. I have a life mantra: keep the legs pumping. This has been my life philosophy for as long as I can remember and it’s what has kept my head above water at the worst times. I am well aware that anything I might be going through is nothing in comparison to some others, so I have always tried to suppress whatever has been going on, believing that my “trivialities” were not worth worrying about or bugging other people with. It is only until very recently I have actually realised that my feelings are worthy of acknowledgment, that I have every right to be upset about things, and I was doing myself more damage by pretending I was ok when I wasn’t. I have Sian and a cluster of other wonderful friends to thank for this epiphany. They have no idea (until now, I guess) what their encouragement for me to feel what I was feeling and not feeling guilty about it, was ok, means – I’m so grateful to them fo
