Getting the right conditions to get my picture taken when I'm feeling that my clothes are aligned all cute isn't always doable. I still don't have the full-length mirror I've beeen dreaming of so that means dingy bathroom -- or in this case, lift -- selfies.

I've never had any shame about the pictures on my Instagram -- i.e that they are selfies or taken again the wall of my house aka not taken by a professional photographer. That's not what style blogging is about for me. As I've recently started a new Instagram page (and hashtag!) I've found myself thinking more about what I want it to be, why I post pictures of myself here and everywhere else. I'm not asking for perfection (great vsco filters, clear backgrounds, no mirrors) not all of us can afford that and it's not always called for. My favourite looks -- ones I thought looked cute or made me feel the best -- were only documented by my camera in a bathroom and that usually enuf for me. So I'm sharing a few recent "outfits of the day" here and inviting you, if you are a fat person who likes clothes, to share yours too. The hashtag is #SdudlaOOTD.

Clothes can be magical. I hadn't worn this cardigan for over two years but it's all I wore this autumn and it felt...nice. Like a present I bought and forgot about.
