Outfit of the (Holi)Day: Happy Lumping Halloween! 

So my favorite holiday came and went. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw all my crazy decorations and my husband dressed as Miley for my big Halloween birthday party over the weekend! It was definitely a great year, and I dressed as one of my favorite Adventure Time princesses- Lumpy Space Princess! After Miss Piggy last year, I’ve been trying to keep the awesome fat girl characters going with my costumes each year, and LSP is definitely one of them! 

 I ordered almost all of this online, with the galaxy dress being a last minute purchase as the one I had ordered did not come in time! Thank god for F21 having some plus size options in certain stores. Although I had to drive 45 minutes to go to one (not cool!) I finally tried out We Love Colors with these tights, and I have to say they’re great! They were comfortable, and didn’t ride down or rip. Such a good buy. I got a pair in black for every day wear, too. I also want to mention how awesome these knock off docks are and how comfortable they are! I thought they would just be for my costume, but they’ve somehow made their way into my every day wardrobe. Also, the Kanekalon wigs are amazing! I’ve never worn such a soft, fun, and versatile wig you can use heat on for such a good price. Kind of wish I could incorporate it into my everyday wear, too. :) 

Dress: Forever 21

Shoes: DSW

Tights: We Love Colors

Wig: Amazon

This year my boyfriend and I went as Han Solo and Princess Leia—with a gender bending twist! We had a great time putting this together and the response from everyone we saw was extremely positive.  I adore this dude and and am so thankful that, contrary to what some people want you to think, big fat nerd love does indeed exist and is wonderful.

I make a lot of costumes and I get “Wow you make great costumes for a fat chick.” Or “Your over weight but your costumes always look great.” WHAT does “fat” have to do with sewing skills. I know they mean you look good in a costume for being fat but I shouldn’t be look upon for my weight I should be looked upon for me. My personality, my style, my drive. I’m so comfortable in my own skin I just wish everyone else was comfortable looking at me.

PRETTY IN PINK

I’m a total sucker for an 80’s teen romantic comedy. A juicy film about love, and 80’s social cliques, that’s infused with an order of fashion and a kick ass soundtrack!  It leaves me satisfied like no other.I have always wanted to do a blog with modern take on this John Hughes classic. The one thing that has always bothered me about the film is the ending. In my perfect world Andie would have ended up with Duckie, they would have got married, and had millions of babies. I’m a huge sucker for the Duckman. He is totally my perfect guy. Kind of like my husband who reminds me consistently of Duckie.

I’m so stoked to have been able to get my real life Duckman to agree to help me out with this post. Duckie always had amazing style. Always marching to the beat of his own dumb and styling thrift styles. This is the path I took when styling up my husband. Everything he is wearing is second hand with the exception of the hat and sunglasses. The hat is from Spencer’s about 5 years ago and the glasses from Coastal. The boots are amazing vintage Doc Martins and were picked up from a Facebook clothing group called Fattoo Accessora. Everything else was picked up at Value Village or the Salvation Army. I feel the whole outfit has a 1980’s vibe but a 2013 fit. I finished off off my husbands look with a few accessories. My favorite detail of this look is the heart shaped Andie pin I made for his jacket.

I have to admit I was a little bit afraid of my look. I never ever wear pink let alone pink covered in unicorns and cupcakes. I didn’t always have a issue with pink, back in 2003 I went through a phase where I colored my hair hot pink and picked up the nick name “Jem”. This totally makes me giggle today because I’m so not like Jem and more like the Misfits
I won this dress a few months ago in a really amazing contest on Facebook. The dress is Hell Bunny (Size 4X) and it comes from Glamour Kitten. Glamour Kitten has lots of super gnarly Hell Bunny dresses. Not everything comes in plus size so shoot her a message if you are looking for a certain style. They are located in the UK. If you’re looking for a retailer a little closer to home you can check out Sweet Echo. This is where I got the white Hell Bunny petticoat from that I’m wearing under the dress. Sweet Echo sells a large amount of plus sized Hell Bunny dresses and is located in Canada.

The white petticoat from Hell Bunny is in size L/XL. I’m a size 26 waist and this item fits me. It’s tight, but I just wear it a little higher on my waist. I find this works fine because it’s long. It’s really designed for these longer vintage style dresses so keep that in mind when ordering.This petticoat comes in lots of colors so if you’re looking for something specific shoot a message to Michelle the owner of Sweet Echo.

Back to the unicorns and cupcakes. While this style is not my norm, there is no disputing how fun and quirky it is. I’m a sucker for anything with skulls on it. This dress comes in black as well, which is nice for those who can’t do pink. I totally love my Hell Bunny dresses. I think I have seven or eight of them now and I know this year I will be buying more. I’m totally excited for some upcoming designs from their new team member Sarah Cake. I absolutely dig Sarah’s design aesthetic.  
For the latest collections by HB check out their Facebook and Instagram pages.

To finish off my Pretty in Pink style I added some black items and some kitschy jewelry. I added the black because I really wanted the pink to pop. I tried on purple and pink cardigans with this look, but they really didn’t seem to be working. 
I think the black shrug, belt and boots tie everything together nicely. It had to be boots because boots with a dress is so very, very, 1980s.
Last I would like to discuss my jewelry. I fear I’m becoming predictable, but I always have a strong vision in my mind and I really can’t purchase the items I imagine. Jewelry is made by myself and you can find my stuff at Everyday is like Halloween. I found an image of the adorable unicorns on my dress and made double brooches for my cardigan. I wrapped up the whole look with a  Pretty in Pink tribute pendant necklace. This is my favorite part about my whole look.
