Seeing as I’ve just attended a fat blogger fashion event I shall attempt once in my life to write about fashion.
Apparently my eyebrows are fashionable at the moment, as they are thick and dark, which was a surprise to me. I’ve never been good at personal grooming, especially if it hurts. I had an online spat with someone recently cos I was speculating where the line is between men who insist that women shave off every hair, and paedophiles. Spose I’m just showing my age.
It really is true that if you wait long enough you’ll be ‘on trend’ every now and then- socks n sandals were even in briefly a while ago- though only for men, and only brave ones at that. I regularly wear them for several sensible reasons and I couldn’t give a shit what anyone else thinks:
1. Sandals get sweaty and smelly, but not if you wear socks with them (and change them).
2. Leeds weather is often a bit warm, a bit cold: socks and sandals = perfect.
3. If you’ve got nice stripey socks you can show more of them off in sandals than shoes.
4. I’m contrary- the more you scoff the more I’ll wear ‘em.
I sat in City Square t’other day and literally couldn’t believe what women wear on their feet these days. Instruments of torture which will probably cause longterm back problems, shorten their leg tendons and make their feet look like blistered talons. Not to mention risking sprained ankles while they’re tottering around. Why do they do it? Really, WHY?
I do like clothes, especially if they’re bright and comfy. But I missed out on fashion as I spent my formative years being a hippy/crusty going to free festivals and having a great time. This was probably my best haircut ever.
Note the homemade stripey jumper. Wonder where that went.
Anyway, the Plus North event was lovely, lots of young gorgeous big birds strutting their stuff- if you are interested in fatshion, take a look at the fb page. There’s lots of links to proper fashion blogs, I don’t think I have the knack.
I shall return to writing about topics I vaguely know sommat about. Quantum physics anyone?
