Did you know that Fossil made clothing? I sure friggin’ didn’t! I thought they were entirely a wallet/purse concern, but apparently I was incorrect.

They evidently make rather nice clothing, too. I waffled a bit on whether this stretchy wool-blend skirt was too form-fitting, but in the end decided to give it a try. Thrift store prices have that effect on me.

(I’ll admit that these are by far the most traditionally flattering photos of all the ones I took. There are definitely lumpier, bumpier ones. Maybe next time I’ll feel up to sharing some.)

Lately I’ve been focused a lot on fit, and how things fit, and whether they fit the right amount. I think that’s where a lot of my clothing anxiety goes; without consciously thinking about it, I worry that people will perceive my clothing as ill-fitting and judge me for misunderstanding my body.

I worry that people will look at me and think, “She thinks she looks good in that?” Pervasive fear of social judgement is all part of the human condition, I suppose. Anyway, I wore the skirt, so it’s a small step in the right direction.

  1. A) You look stunning, and I think part of that comes from your utter confidence and inner light that comes through in these pictures
    B) I appreciate that on your fashion blog you frankly talk about using your flattering pictures and the fear of social judgment, etc. You are a good example and also interesting to read as well as having great clothes sense.
    C) Other compliments re: greatness of skirt, you (It’s early). ❤

  2. I think the skirt looks AWESOME on you. Also yes! I did know Fossil made clothing. I have owned and loved a few pieces (until they fell.. to pieces).. I also love their bags and watches.

    I do agree with you on those lines of thinking. I’ve had to almost keep my wardrobe in flux since my medications made me start gaining weight. Now I try on tops that aren’t supposed to be maternity and go through the fear-confusion of ‘do I look fat/pregnant?’ or does it flatter my shape. I’m hoping with getting back to work, I’ll find a way to take consistent blog photos again so I can look at myself without a mirror (mirrors lose so much) and begin to learn my new shape.
