Went to New York, went to the Big Fat Flea, cuddled with some fat friends.
But this post is about the outfits.
[Two shots of me standing by a wooden fence in front of purple flowers in Shakespeare’s Garden, Central Park, NYC, USA. I’m wearing a cream colored knit knee length ASOS Curve dress with horizontal black stripes going through the torso. I’m also wearing bright yellow teggings from Re-Dress, A cream colored beret, a gold pendant,white socks and maroon Keen mary-janes.]
[A close up shot of my face and upper torso, showing that I am wearing my cream beret with a flower detail, brown faux tortoise shell round glasses, and red lipstick. My pendant is a golden lion door knocker with two tassels.]
[A shot of me wearing glasses, dark purple lipstick, and Afrotitty’s black and white striped tank top and white 50s beaded hat and veil. I look a bit like Delia from Beetlejuice.]
Lately I have been gravitating heavily towards black and white color schemes.
Ok maybe a little purple too.
(Image: Me, a light skinned Latina fat femme smiling a bit shyly with one arm behind my back. I have a rhinestone bow in my short black bobbed hair. I’m wearing a grey-violet tunic with black piping, black lace on the bodice, and a ruffled hem. Under the tunic I’m wearing a white ruffle hemmed underskirt. My legs are clad in hot pink teggings. I’m wearing white socks with my burgundy mary janes.)

(Image: A snapshot of me in front of a garden wall with plants growing through an iron fence. I am in the previously mentioned outfit and a navy blue coat that has faux fur trim on the collar and hem. I’m holding a bag that’s black with a flower patterned tapestry fabric. And super cool 60s square cat-eye sunglasses.)
Hello to all my new followers! Thanks so much for taking an interest in my fatshion. It means a lot. I love seeing all your great fatshion senses on display too!
A couple of notes: First: unfortunately this is not my primary tumblr. The primary one (redribbonbow) is just for personal use. So I can’t follow anyone on this tumblr. I’m really sorry about that. I also get easily overwhelmed and anxious by the massive tumblr output, so I can’t add all the people I’d like. Truth is, I hardly participate in tumblr discourse at all, I just like to make quick and easy posts here for fashion documentation purposes, so even if I were to add you, I probably wouldn’t make an interesting follower! That may or may not change, but that might explain why you don’t get a follow.
Second: I made a completely dingbat move when I got my firstname.lastname@example.org email and put it on here. I meant to connect it to my main email, and thought I did. But I totally forgot. D’oh! I check it today, and there are emails going two years back! I’m so sorry for my lateness, but I will try to reply to most of them soon. I have now connected the emails so feel free to contact me from now on.
Pearls are my favorite gem. Can you tell?
(Image: Me, a light skinned latina fattie, in a blush pink dropped waist tunic printed with small birds. It has a ruffled collar and hem. With it I’m wearing hot pink tights, a bow with a kitty print in my short black bobbed hair. I’ve got a knotted strand of pearls around my neck and transparent blush colored glasses from the fourties. I’m carrying a purple purse with a bow.)
I came across this hat at Retro Fit in SF. I wish it were a part of my outfit!

(A photo of me, a death fattie with short black bobbed hair and bangs, in a black tunic with pearl detailed collar, a white ruffled underskirt peeking out, electric blue teggings, black mary janes, and a large scarf bow in my hair.)
(Detail shot where you can more clearly see the faux pearl encrusted peter pan collar, indigo, lavender, gold and pearl print scarf bow, my round tortoise shell glasses, and darker makeup. My lipstick is a dark mauve.)
