Just a Fat Bitch going to New York Fashion Week

There's a moment in every fat girl's life where she is called a fat bitch for the first time. For me, that moment came on the playground in third grade. My friend had told my crush about said crush and his response was "eww, she's a fat bitch." I remember being startled and hurt. He was the first but he wasn't the last. And during that time of my life, I really started to delve deeper into my love of fashion.

Fashion became my freedom from bullying. I knew that I could put together looks better than anyone else. I wasn't afraid to stand out. In fact, I thrived when I did. I remember writing out my first list of goals and right at the top: attend New York Fashion Week. And guess what? In only a few short days, this Fat Bitch is doing just that!

OUTFIT DETAILS

Fat Bitch Tee, Fat Girl Flow

Red Vinyl Mini Skirt, ASOS (sold out but check back for restocks) 

Fishnet Red Side Stripe Ankle Sock, ASOS

Layered Chain Belt, Ready to Stare

Gold Oxford Platforms, Amazon (more sizes in similar style)

While I was packing for NYFW, this was a look that I immediately pulled aside. And when I posted a preview showing what was in my suitcase, y'all immediately wanted the details on this Fat Bitch tee from Fat Girl Flow. I don't blame you. It's amazing! The design is killer obviously and the tee itself is comfortable and soft. Plus, you are supporting one of my fave blogger pals and fellow small business owner in the process. I am wearing the 2X, for reference.

Now back to this look. I wanted to pack it for NYFW because it embodies so much of my fashion journey: past, present and future. I took most of my childhood fashion cues from the movie Clueless and have been searching for a red PVC skirt a la Dionne ever since. I am not surprised that this skirt sold out so fast but I am sorry for y'all! When I went to look for a similar one from another brand, I found about 10 in straight sizes and none in plus. I swear I pounce on every vinyl item I see in plus for this reason.

Onto the shoes! Platforms were everything I wanted during my Spice Girl phase so this is definitely a past meets present. And well fishnet socks do not seem to be going anywhere these days. Also side note, I cannot find these shoes since I shot this look. Only I could lose giant platforms somewhere between my car and closet so I'm actually bringing alternate shoes to NYFW.
