My post title came from an article in this week's Grazia, and it really caught my eye. The article was about Mad Men star Christina Hendricks' amazing figure. There's been a lot of blogging about the body lately and I thought I'd share my thoughts! It's a tricky subject as my body was never really usually an issue until the last year. I was always a size 8/10 and could get away with wearing pretty much anything. I was a very slim build but with a good size bum but all that changed. Out of nowhere I had boobs and wide hips.
So the last year has been a real struggle to come to terms with my new body. I am now a curvy size 12 and I pretty much feel fat because none of my old clothes fit me properly. I'm not saying that a size 12 is fat, but I don't feel confident in my self as I was before. I have to accept that some styles just don't suit me anymore and I can't look at say Kate Moss and think that will suit me (by the way, I don't think I use to look like Kate Moss, I just look at her style for inspiration) So right now I'm in a bit of a style rut, my older clothes don't fit me and I don't have the money to buy new ones (job hunting is happening, I'll be finding out about a job interview I did soon) No matter how many times people tell me I'm not fat, I just feel unconfident. I guess people need to accept their bodies for what they are and learn that we can't mould them into what we want. I need to get out of this so starting in a few weeks I will be posting daily outfit posts and hopefully this will give me the incentive to dress properly for my shape and just experiment with new ideas! I need to embrace my new boobs and curves, after all when I was younger I always wanted to have big boobs like Pamela Anderson! Haha Be careful what you wish for!
Slight exaregation that I look like Pamela Anderson, of course haha
