Every year I romanticize Summer, and every year I am reminded that it's the absolute worst. I nearly passed out while taking these pictures. The heat and humidity were abominable, but I was determined to make a post about this look!
This rad dress is from Killstar. I have been obsessed with that website lately. Their accessories were always calling me but I had been very skeptical about their clothing, as they don't particularly cater to plus a size demographic, like a lot of these brands that make unconventional, alternative clothing. And for that price point, uhh I wasn't really willing to risk it. Even if they go up to a size XXL, I was worried that the clothing might run small. This dress was screaming to be in my closet, so I decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did! It fits true to size and it's a bummer that they don't have more options for plus size bodies. On the internet, people are very supportive of me, however in real life, I deal with hate, body shaming, and a whole lot of ignorance, and this dress says what I wish I could voice out myself to everyone wasting their time trying to dictate what I should and shouldn't do with MY body, and overall appearance. I mean, plus size black individuals can be alt too, you know -_-
To accessorize, I added this rainbow Ragged Priest clutch from asos, to which I added a strap because I don't like carrying things around. It's my absolute favorite! I also added these awesome Question Mark and Exclamation Point earrings from MarinaFini's etsy store. She makes the most exquisite plexiglass jewelry. I had to remove this super cute bat choker. It was too hot and it caused me great discomfort after a while. I will feature it in future outfits 'cause I do wear it often. I finished the look with my Iridescent Hello Kitty creepers from TUKshoes, and the Wipe Out Liquid Lipstick from MakeupMonstersCosmetics.
Now, Have some lovely shots of me playing in my hair and being a happy fat babe before I turned into a hot sweaty mess!
