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.
