It’s Marvelous Monday, everybody! This is a weekly blog challenge between myself and four other fabulous fatshion bloggers. Make sure to go check out their outfits today, too! Links are at the bottom of the post.
Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!
This week’s theme: Outfits inspired by a fictional character
This week’s theme is definitely the most abstract one we’ve done so far. It’s not meant to necessarily be a full-on costume, but we decided to take some fashion inspiration from our favorite fictional characters this week, and I chose my ’90s style icon, Claudia Kishi from the Babysitter’s Club series!
Obviously going full-on Claudia would have been a little too crazy for my day to day life, so I decided to just take a few elements of her style. Taking fashion risks, for one, and high-waisted shorts over tights is a totally new look for me. Also, big chunky plastic accessories in not-entirely-matching colors/patterns seemed appropriate! The side ponytail is a ’90s look, too; of course, the real thing would have been much higher and involved a brightly colored scrunchy, but, well, I had to wear this to class!
