Fatshion Makeover ~ Bringing in the New with Torrid

AT LAST! *cue Etta James* - the gorgeous weather has come along! I've been waiting with breath that is baited for the sun to return to us once more. To melt away the grey and gloom left behind from the frosty clutches of winter, for not only does the sun bring along light and warmth, but it also brings along a time for a fresh, new look! ^_^

Time to spring-clean out those closets, ladies! Put away those winter coats and heavy sweaters, and start bringing out the bright colours, the cotton dresses, the sleeveless tops! Okay okay - it's not summer yet - but it's still time enough to get excited for it and to razzle-dazzle yourself up a little!

It was a gorgeous day out the other day - and YES, it was warm enough to wear a cotton, sleeveless dress - imagine! It was profoundly perfect timing as I had just finished a shopping haul from Torrid and was dieing to break out a brand-new dress.








I got a little carried away with this outfit - but in a good way. I wanted my outfit to shout-out-loud my excitement for spring, for colours, patterns...possibilities! Most of this outfit are new items that I've been waiting to wear - the Torrid floral-pattern dress I just purchased, the black lace leggings, baby-blue gladiator sandals (which have both been in my closet for months and months, just waiting for me to bring them out!) and my leather punk spiked headband. I put them all together with a punk belt and bracelt, my red Swarovski Crystal shamballa bracelet, and my usual victorian cameo ring.

The seasons are changing and it's time to PLAY! Time to give yourself (and your closet) one hell of a fabulous makeover! ^_^


Happy Fatshion Makeovers!
