I Wear What I Want (Gwynnie Bee- First Impressions)

Fat fashion will empty your pocketbook fast. I’m happy to report my first impression of GB is a good one both in terms of cost and quality.

I Wear What I Want- Leggings

This top was a total departure for me, y’all. The colors, the cut, the fabric, the pattern… I’ve never worn anything like it. When I saw it online, I thought, “Why not try something new?” And so, I tried something new and I dig it! The colors look ah-may-zing. And, and, and I got to wear my new ankle boots too! And, and, and any reason to go out in leggings is a plus. I freaking love to wear leggings. I love how comfortable they are and I adore how my legs look. This outfit felt stylish and fun.
