The pointy shoes and skinny pants
If you’re a regular follower of InTheThickofIt, you’ll know this outfit isn’t massively different from recent posts. As much as I try to mix things up, I still have a strong inclination to black/white ensembles. And in addition to that - it’s been so cold and snowy here in the midwest, it’s been difficult to get in the spirt of wearing anything other than layers of warm things.
Many of my readers have asked how to incorporate gothy elements into everyday wear. I mean as much as I’d like to look like Siouxsie on a daily basis - it’s not really possible with my day-to-day lifestyle and clothing. So I make compromises. These new beautiful John Fluevog shoes i got with friend oooswampwitch in portland are a good example of a strong element of the weird and wicked that can fit into a more casual look. Also part of this outfit is this strange stretchy cross shirt that I purchased from the straight-size section of forever 21. This is a good example that plus size folks aren’t always relegated to strictly the plus size section of a store - this shirt is SUPER stretchy and could even fit folks larger than myself.

Sunday Funday and the black maxi dress
I am a sucker for a super vintage mini golf course. And when the opportunity came up to hang out with my sweet (queer!) friends to play mini golf at one of the oldest places to do that in Chicago, I couldn’t pass it up.
And so while this isn’t a traditional outfit post, I thought you all might want to see what this fat femme does on the weekends.
And here is what I’m wearing:
Black maxi dress - Forever 21+ 2x (from last year)
Sunglasses - SEE optical (prescription)

You may notice that my boyfriend is wearing my siouxsie sioux shirt that you’ve seen on me several times here!
