OOTD: So I guess I’m not that skinny

Cobalt High-Waisted Skinny Jeans – Primark
Black Cardigan – New Look
Medium Brown Knee-High Boots – Primark
Micky Mouse Body – eBay
Oversized Shopper Bag – New Look

I guess I should explain the title of this post? I was looking at LookBook and again it makes me feel like I’m so inferior in height and in size compared to those beauties who come up on my news-feed. It makes me depressed. Because I love food and so I will never be skinny and I just can’t do nothing about my acute lack of height. I don’t like not being in control, but these 2 things I can’t change – not without ending up where I already have been (in eating disorders).

So my only way of dealing is by shrugging my shoulders and try to not let me be bothered by those skinny lovelies and just accepting the fact that I’m not that skinny (compared to what the fashion world wants me to be). This is not me saying I think I’m fat – I’m just not as skinny as those girls you see on telly, etc. And I gotta accept that. Which is difficult for someone who’s still recovering from eating disorders mindset.

Apologies for the rather depressing post! Hope you don’t mind and still like the outfit!

      I’m a recovering sufferer of eating disorders. What I see in the mirror doesn’t necessarily match reality. And my point was that I’m definitely not that skinny compared to those stick-figures you see in the media and on lookbook LOL.

      thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment ♥

    For having seen you last week, I think you are proprtionnal and that’s all that matters! I really like the Mickey Mouse body, I’m loving cartoons tees at the moment!

      I’m a little bit disproportional (my legs are shorter than my upper body) and I know I’m not fat or chubby. My point was more provocatively saying that I am just not as skinny as the media would like me to be. And sometimes I struggle with that (thanks to my old eating disorders) and sometimes I am ok with it.

    That’s funny, I was just thinking how skinny you looked and how I wish I had the figure to pull of those high waisted jeans.

    I think you look as skinny as any of the other girls in LookBook. The image you seem to have of yourself (from what I can gather from your post ) doesn’t seem to be coherent how you actually look , which might be explained in the eating disorder mindset. Don’t shrug your shoulders cause of the idea that you are not as skinny, instead embrace that you are equally beautiful and fabulous! 
    I totally understand the hype on LookBook and I can also feel that sometimes it’s too much focus on figure rather than a look. 
    Love your blog and outfits <3

      Thank you so much for your kind words! I really appreciate it. Yeah I really do think that my vision of myself is massively distorted – probably why I ended up in eating disorders and probably a left-over from that time too. My brain just snapped back then and went ‘you fail at everything because you are fat’ (which I wasn’t, just compared to the girls I was hanging out [professional dancers])

      I really, really appreciate your comment and thank you so much for reading my blog xxxx
