Wearing everything a plus-size girl shouldn’t wear

Yes, it’s just another day in the wearing-everything-a-plus-size-girl-shouldn’t wear-series 
a.k.a this website. 

Peplum: A short overskirt that is usually attached to a fitted jacket, blouse or dress

Peplum was all over the runways and magazines a while ago, and while it was never my favourite trend, I recently read how fat girls should avoid them as they add layers of weight to the tummy area and create an appearance of being heavier. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that a statement like that spikes the rebellious ‘curvy' ‘fat' 'plus-size' girl in me. I had to. However, I took the peplum trend a step further and added layers to match what I had in mind. Now this isn’t a peplum top per se, but it follows the same style and design so I had to use it when I found it in my wardrobe. 

There’s something about chunky jewellery - every time I shift to a more minimal style, there’s one day when I go all out and pull out my chunky jewellery. Clearly this was one of those days. Also, I love bindis so I take every chance I have to wear them. 

I can’t wait to see what else people think 'plus-size’ girls shouldn’t wear, because I totally will wear them. Since it’s out there now, tell me if you’ve come across something people constantly advice plus-size people not to do/wear and I’d love to break that tip. 

On that note, I happened to stumble upon this annoying comment: Plus Size Clothing should not be available on high street

I can’t remember the last time someone wanted to explore a new hobby
rather than make it to Instagram’s popular page. 

I can’t remember the last time they told us what it felt like to be in love with a human being, 
and not her new profile picture. 

I can’t remember the last time we woke up and wished each other good morning,
rather than checking 256 new WhatsApp notifications. 

I can’t remember and it’s scary.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and quickly jotted this down during an auto ride. I put it at the end of the post because shooting this post was not just fun but also really therapeutic because I spent a long time twirling around on a windy Bangalore day and just watching people go about daily activities like playing, walking, jogging and meditating. There’s something calming about watching people laugh and look relaxed.


(No outfit details because they’re all flea market purchases except for the skirt which I have stolen from my mom, forever)


  1. I want that black blouse+dress thingie!!!!!

  2. Oh, do you ever want to get the shorter version of light denim overalls? We should get them! I'd wear mine with sneakers, and a cotton tee. So yay! I think you would look cool in that kind of get-up, too.

  3. Well, well, well, firstly I like the cut of the top and I think it's totally NOT adding bulk to your curves... :)

    Also, you are right, we are becoming social media slaves by the day...and it IS scary! #foodforthought

    P.S.: Can't wait to see you!!

  4. I would wear this entire outfit to the T. This is so up my alley!
