Fatshion Friday: Varsity Prep
This past weekend, I finally got around to purchasing a pair of jeans I have long coveted from Addition Elle. The Parasuco Acid Wash Skinny. I love the look of acid wash, but I didn't want it to be too overwhelming. That way, I could still wear them with most items in my wardrobe. I also like the fact that they are skinny jeans (so I can tuck them into boots), yet they're not constricting. To say the least, I am in LOVE. These jeans, are perfect. They fit me perfectly in every part of my body, which is so rare to find these days. I have a larger waist, but small hips and butt and toned legs. Often, plus size clothing does not cater to this. I rarely find a pair of jeans that fit my entire bottom half so well. I'm going back to buy the Parasuco black skinny jean next weekend!
Note: I was recommended by a sales associate to go down one normal size than I usually wear at Addition Elle because these jeans are a bit stretchier than most, and I'm glad I took her advice.
The other day, I was studying at my university (you probably could guess, it's U of T) and I felt really cute and put together. I asked my classmate to snap a picture, and I Instagrammed it (follow me HERE). It caught the eye of Addition Elle's social media team, and they approached me asking if they could use my photograph for Fan Friday, which can be seen HERE. I was thrilled and I felt honoured, so of course I said yes. A number of women have asked for outfit details on the Addition Elle post, so here they are!
