Coat Check

I was so excited when I got my big box of love from Torrid a few days ago.I can't wait to wear some of the other items! Enclosed was this amazing army green twill jacket with a fur collar. I didn't know the jacket had thick, tartan print lining inside. I love, love, love this jacket. It's enough grunginess, but the fur adds that girly flair I have to possess. Yesterday was a really chill day - errands, mall, dinner, and Real Housewives of Atlanta. I always say it never matters what's underneath your coat in the winter as long as you have on a bomb coat and sickening boot. After all, that's all people see. I wore my jacket with black leggings and the Tasha over-the-knee boots, also from Torrid. They're a tad big around my calves, but I love how they're structured and don't slouch.

Jacket, Leggings, Boots: Torrid - Bag: Vintage Louis Vuitton Speedy

Love To Watch Her Leave

Something was telling me that the night wasn't going to go as planned. I was right! For one, I never get to the club before midnight. I just can't do it. I don't like to be in the club for more than an hour and a half. Secondly, I like to take my time getting dressed, listen to music, apply extra coats of mascara, make sure I have everything in my clutch. We were rushing to get to this graduation party before 11, but I didn't even leave my house until 10:47. We get there and it's a moshpit down the street of clubgoers trying to get in. I was already over it and knew I was not going to play the wait outside game. So after standing outside for about 10 minutes, I chucked the deuces and made way for my car. Along the way, I was able to snap a few photos of my outfit. I didn't really like this outfit because it was cream and black, which looks so uniform and boring. The top is from Old Navy and it has these silk panels all along the front. Really feminine and flirty. I love my fishnet tights from Torrid, which I will be wearing again very soon. Turns out I had the tights on backwards because the seam was supposed to be in the rear! A night wasted. No more partying until New Years Eve.

Other exciting updates...
I purchased a domain name and I'm now www.DiaryofaFatshionista.com! I made the big transition to being .com instead of .blogspot.com! This was a big decision for me because I wanted the timing to be right. Now it's official.

I can't say thank you enough for Skorch Magazine featuring me in their December issue "Bloggers To Watch" article. I'm on page 43! Check it out!

Free As A Bird

I was so excited when I received my bright yellow bundles of love in my mailbox from Forever 21 containing my Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases. The black dove cardigan was initially snug around the top of my arms, but as the night progressed I realized it fit just right. The sleeves have a button feature on the outside if you want to make it short sleeved. The lime body con skirt surprised me because the material was a quality and thick. I hit the streets last night, so I paired the two together with a black burnout tank that I got from Old Navy years ago and my Nine West "Aroundtown" suede wedges. How do I look?
