#FatGirl at Fashion Week Rejoices: Spoilt for Choice at Last!

Fat Girl is still fat. Not ‘pleasantly plump’ (what about plump is EVER pleasant?) And its not like I didn’t try! My trainer stole money from the gym and got fired. And my nutritionist fired me. Well, what to do? Here’s what… rant and cheat! Wear clothes designed to make you look slimmer while u still sneak in that midnight chocolate bar and make promises to workout out starting Monday. God swear. 

The trauma of any night out, lunch date or best friends shaadi starts with the ‘what the f*** am I going to wear?’ stress. If you are anything like me, all you have in your wardrobe is umpteen black kurta variations and a few white ones thrown in for the days when you are feeling marginally less fat. I’d like to support the Indian design fraternity, I really would, but how?? No one makes or stocks my size! With every fashion week, Fat Girl dies a little inside. I’d need to trim about 8 inches off my waist and shave off about 2/3rd of my thigh to be able to just about fit into most of the designs on the ramp. Oooh and I will also need the staple 9-inch heels on my feet. Arrrggggh! 

Rant over.  Phew. 

It does however look like the tide is (finally!) turning! From what I am seeing at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer Resort ’14 and Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn Winter ’14, there’s a bunch of things to head to the stores for! Aaaah! At last! Shop on, my chubby pals!

I’ve done the hard work for you. Looked through pretty much everything and selected your wardrobe for the rest of the year! Here’s a bunch of stuff that I am definitely placing orders for (errm, already placed orders for). Very Fat Girl friendly! My shopping list this season is slightly out of hand. I am after all spoilt for choice! For once!!

LFW 2Long and lean is the silhouette to flaunt and the number of kurta ideas that jumped at us here are enough to take us through till next season. We love how the slim fits can instantly lean you up and the feminine and flirty feel is just the right amount of sensuous!

lfw 1Pairing your kurtas with slim-fit pants is really the way forward. While the flowy kurt a does a good job of hiding your chub, the slim-fit pants give you a streamlined, slimmer look!

WIFW 2Layering might be dangerous territory for a bigger girl, but we love the effortless layering tips spotted at fashion week. The key is to keep it flowy if paired with fitted inners or fitted when paired with flowy inners.

wifw 1When it comes to colours, black is really is the best but isn’t it a tad bit boring? Pick darker hues or candy colours filled with embellishments. Be wary when opting for prints, but anything that is vertical is fair game!
