Hey friends! How are we doing?
Anyone else tired as hell? Raise your hands, sleepy friends! So work, as always, is hard and I’m exhausted. Turns out working six days a week minimum isn’t good for someone with possible CFS. But I digress! Today we’re trying a new thing out, which is that I actually made my boyfriend dress me! So it’s plus size pinup style with a twist today.
Turns out that living with a person doesn’t necessarily mean you spend a lot of time with them. Joe (The Boyfriend®) has been working nights a lot recently. So we only really see each other for a bit in the mornings. It sucks, frankly, but we decided to head over to Shoreditch and spend the day together doing a little exploring.
It wasn’t really a planned idea — as I was getting ready, Joe was giving me some ideas. So we had the idea that he’d rifle through my wardrobes (yes, plural) and see what he could put together. It wasn’t easy for him. At all. Actually, it wasn’t easy for me either because it turns out he has no idea and I don’t like being told what to do. Somehow we managed to get to this banger of an outfit though, so it turns out we’re a bloody good team.
Plus Size Pinup
As it stands, Joe likes a bit of a rock chic style, and his ideas were along the lines of 60s Sweater Girls VS Cherie Currie from The Runaways. And so, we basically ended up with me looking like a Ryan Heshka Mean Girls Club reject. I. Fucking. Love. It.
It’s actually really refreshing to have a different sort of style put together for you. I’ve mentioned in my Outfits of the Week posts recently that I can get a bit bored with my style. So I really enjoyed working on something slightly different with Joe. So much so that we’ll be doing it more often!
So on this particular day we hung out around Shoreditch looking for some badass graffiti to pose by. If you don’t know London, you might not know that Shoreditch is where all the hipster dicks live, which means it’s also where the cool street art is. And I also got spotted by a local photographer, Raf Huggins, who had me pull ugly faces whilst looking badass. As it turns out, Shoreditch really is the place to be.
