EACH DRESS IS SIZE 3/4X OR 26/28 BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY RUN QUITE SMALL. I ESTIMATE THEY WOULD BEST FIT A SMALLER 3X OR A LARGE 2X.
ALL OF THESE DRESSES ARE WELL MADE AND ADORABLE, BUT JUST DID NOT COME CLOSE TO FITTING MY FRAME (BROAD SHOULDERED, BIG BELLIED, TALL!). THEY ARE ALSO STILL IN THEIR PLASTIC BAGS DIRECT FROM THE ONLINE SHOP. I HAVEN’T WORN THEM NOR HAS MY CAT SLEPT ON THEM. :)
In order of appearance:
1. You don’t have to follow me, it’s ok. I’ll understand. (weepy voice)
2. Likes don’t count. Only reblogs. Doing it more than once won’t help you. Don’t spam your friends, kids! I’ll be removing duplicates with my Excel savviness.
3. On 3:00pm EST on October 1st, 2014 the clouds shall part and I will announce a random winner.
4. Winner will be chosen like a number in a hat, totally at random. So bribes won’t help you!
5. I dunno what the other rule is… something important!
My request about entrants in this giveaway: if you can easily afford these dresses on a regular basis, please don’t enter by reblogging this post. I don’t mean that in a nasty way either. I want these to go to someone who just cannot afford new clothes and a lot of these are appropriate dresses for work or events that someone otherwise can’t purchase.
I just want to hook up a fattie out there who needs some universal love in the form of fatshion.
If I forgot anything, you can message me, but uhhhhh, I may have forgotten stuff.
Like, I’ll ship anywhere. That’s no problem.
AANNNNND, WHAT ELSE…
Questions about sizing? Ummm… I’ll try to answer them. They’re all small fitting for a 26/28 person like me. I’d say these are all made more for 22/24s. Whatever that conversion is in the UK or anywhere else, I really couldn’t tell you!! :(
Good luck, y’all!!!! <3
there are so many l.a’s. which might sound like nonsense, as it’s also true of other cities. there are so many new yorks, and so many londons, and etc. but l.a is one of the most schizophrenic cities on the planet.
if you look in one direction it’s modern and urban.
another direction it’s old and urban.
another direction it’s a developing world city.
another direction it’s a bucolic affluent suburb.
another direction it’s the desert. and etc.
this building, the el royale, represents early 20th century hollywood royalty. when l.a and hollywood were birthing themselves daily, and trying to shape themselves into regal and quasi-european metropolises. or metropolii?
even then the battles raged (ok, maybe they didn’t rage). should l.a be modern? should it be traditional? so you have frank lloyd wright and richard neutra and schindler trying to make l.a into a modernist paradise. and then you have buildings like the el royale, which was the product of angelenos trying to make l.a into bavaria by the sea.
and now everything co-exists, at times peacefully, at times discordantly. and since the early 20th century the fray has been populated by even more l.a’s. the l.a of strip malls. the l.a of beige tract housing. the l.a of frank gehry. the l.a of everything.
so here’s the el royale. an apartment house palace swimming in a sea of palm trees and cactii.
i mean, you move to l.a in the early 20th century, you’re 10,000 miles from europe in the middle of the desert, so why not build a bavarian castle apartment house and surround it with palm trees?
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
J.K Rowling said that her inspiration for Hagrid came from when she was 19 in a pub in the west country and this terrifying looking guy came in with these other biker guys and the only thing he talked to J.K about was how his cabbages were getting on
