♥ Review: Leg Avenue - "Plus Size" Cuban Heel Stockings ♥

I've been wanting a pair of Cuban heel stockings for months now. When I saw that Leg Avenue had a pair of them available for plus sizes I got really, really, excited! I received them in the mail this afternoon as I was leaving my house and was so excited the entire time I was out to go home and try them on. When I got home I slid them on and they fit everywhere but the top of my thighs. I put my garter belt on and it kinda helped them stay up but the sides were still falling down! You can kinda see that in the second picture. 
 I'm bummed that I won't be able to wear them at the moment but I'm going to keep them and see if they fit in a few months, after I've been running more!

I am between a size 18 and a size 20 right now and I think the only sizes these would really fit would be anywhere between an 18 and a 14. The material is thinner than most of my other stockings and I had to try extra hard not to make a run in them while putting them on. 

Rate: 3/5 

I gave them a 3 instead of a 2 because even though the material is crappy they are still really cute stockings and I haven't been able to find any other Cuban heel stockings!

Dealing with body shamers..

Someone on tumblr messaged me the other day asking me why I dress so fancy and they basically said I shouldn't do that because I am fat. Then they also asked me if I dress up to be accepted by other people and then told me that it would never work because I am fat. 

(I found this picture floating around on tumblr, it's not mine!)
I don't care if they were trying to be mean or if they were just genuinely curious. I don't dress up for anyone but myself. I like dressing girly and I apparently love making people uncomfortable by me, a fat girl, dressing in cute pastel colors and polka dots.
If anyone ever gives you shit for wanting to dress a certain way tell them to mind their own business! 
It really doesn't concern them and they need to sort out their priorities if they're seriously getting their panties in a bunch over what a fat person wears! If you want to wear baggy t-shirts and jeans then do it. If you want to wear a pencil skirt and a peplum top with a huge bow on the back, do it! If you want to wear a banana costume then you go do that! Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't wear certain things because you are bigger than them. It's your life not theirs and you have every right to do what you want with your life as long as you're not hurting yourself or other people!

Plus Size: Fall Essentials ♥

Plus Size: Fall Essentials
Shopping for fashionable clothes when you're fat is really hard and frustrating so I am making this post to try to make it a little bit easier! I 

These are from Forever 21! Forever 21's leggings are really, really, cute but the material sucks. :/ Another store that sells plus size leggings is Chubby Cartwheels! I want to buy a pair of their velvet leggings so badly. Chubby Cartwheels goes up to a size 32! 
 I love wearing leggings because they're so comfy and I usually hate wearing pants, but leggings are amazing and anyone that gives you crap for wearing them can suck it! 

Sweaters & Cardigans!

These cardigans are from Dorothy Perkins. I usually get my sweaters and cardigans from thrift stores though! I look in the mens section for sweaters because I like old man sweaters. SimplyBe sells some cute sweaters and cardigans too, and they go up to a size 30! 

A light jacket!

I recently bought the jacket on the left from Forever 21! It's really comfortable and it's great for cold weather. I'm not so sure how it'd do in the rain though. And the jacket on the right is from Asos Curve!

A good pair of boots! 

I like wearing boots in the fall because the weather is unpredictable and I never know when it's going to rain, and I absolutely hate getting my feet wet!! I plan on buying a pair of Dr.Martens this year. You can find them pretty much anywhere online but here is the link to their website. ♥

Cute socks and thigh highs!

I love wearing cute socks!! I get mine from all over the place but these three are from topshop. You can make those frilly lace socks with your own socks and lace too if you don't want to buy them! I might make a tutorial for that but it's really easy. For thigh highs, I get mine from sock dreams. The ones I buy specifically are the extraordinarily longer thigh highs which are right here. :)
