For some reason the most zany elements of my dress aesthetic come out when I am in the fabric store. Maybe it is because these days 90% of most fabric stores are either quilting cotton or polar fleece and there are some delightfully deranged minds designing quilting cotton these days (and of course polar fleece is not wearable by anyone over the age of 11, give or take). Maybe it is because so much commercially available plus-sized clothing is matronly, just boring, or really poorly designed and/or constructed (like this sweater, perfect for those days when your arms and chest are freezing but you back is really hot, or when you just want to show off your bra straps) so when I am making something myself part of my brain says "f*** da police! I do what I want!". Regardless, the net result is the same:
In case it is not clear from the picture, this dress has a glitter finish. Also, my three-year-old niece has a dress out of the same fabric. She thinks it is pretty boss too and she is very stylish. I was running errands today (yeah, this is not a work outfit). Apparently Target has their Halloween jewelry in for this year, see right, but none of their other Halloween stuff. I am pretty pleased with this skeletal hands necklace. It's pretty, sparkly, spooky, and, if worn lower (and it has an extension), vaguely pervy.
