anyone come across any good thrift/bargain-focused fatshion (or even plain fashion) blogs? maybe it's just me but i feel like fats/the fatosphere is really really populated with insanely flush folks lately. i appreciate that people can afford prada, and miumiu, and calvin klein and look totally fantastic in it but it's not particularly applicable to my life/experience (now or probably ever). sometimes i just want to connect with others who are light in wallet but heavy in style, and it would be rad if there was a reliable place i could go to for that.
of course i have my beloved wardrobe_remixers and the fats flickr pool, but i'm sure there must be more glittering cubic zirconias out there that i'm missing.
I want that for myself.
(hangouts soon? y/y?)
I like that I have no "n" option. And double yes, of course! I'm off tomorrow but don't wanna make any plans. Food maybe. Otherwise work's pretty breezy currently so lemme know when yer free.
And yup, it needs to exist. Maybe we need to start it.
me too! for reals. i wish i could find sites like that that were fat positive and had the kinds of clothes i think about for myself...
YES I'M GONNA HOOK YOU UP!!http://missameliahart.blogspot.com/http://corazonesrojos.tumblr.com/http://nofutvre.blogspot.com/
They even have a "doing it on the cheap" thing especially about thrifting!!
I have been feeling like I don't fit into the fatshionsphere because I can't afford clothes all the time. HERE IS AN OOTD OF... EVERYTHING YOU HAVE SEEN BEFORE. Do people want to see that? I don't know. I worry they'd hate me :(
We don't have much plus sized stuff in op shops here. It pains me :(
oh I totally agree with you. In Canada I have an alright time finding plus-sized things in thrift stores, but I always wonder how many times I can post an outfit wearing the same dress
I've been reading sewing blogs which can be interesting (though are frustratingly white, middle class, straight, skinny, etc. etc.)
Check out: http://www.colettepatterns.com/blog/the-handmade-world/me-made-may-join-us
Which is a blog based challenge for sewers to wear what they make. The creator of the challenge already did that all march
I'm also really intrigued by this woman
who is blogging about using WWII clothing rationing as a basis for what she will buy over a year. It's all vintage inspired (obvs) and I like how she talks about rationing, and mending/remaking clothes.
I can't help with suggestions but I totally get where you're coming from. I'm trying to break out of a jeans and tees mould, can't afford new things... I'm trying to raid my own old clothes, sew a bit more, basically just try to think creatively, but I could totally do with thrifty fatshion inspiration...
I don't count as a blog, but I am determined to get back to photographing outfits this summer, and I will have to do it on the cheap. Realistically, I will have to do it on the spend nothing.
I'm not as good at thrifting, but then we have very few options in my town. So it's mostly Target and such-like.
