Fashion Adjacent FAQ

Q: What the heck does Fashion Adjacent mean anyway?
A: Here's what I think "Fashion Adjacent" means.
Instead of "Fashion Forward" - where being "trendy" or "on trend" or "ahead of the next trend" is most important - be "Fashion Adjacent". You're aware of current trends, but you know that this season's trends are an optional dress up party, to be indulged in or ignored as your personal style dictates.

If you are "Fashion Adjacent", you:
  • Forget "trendy" and wear things you love whether they are "fashionable" or not.
  • Forget size tags and wear clothes that fit you beautifully.
  • Forget Labels and find gems everywhere, from op shops to designer stores.
  • Forget "flattering" and wear things that make your heart sing.
  • Recognise and celebrate your body and realise that your body is perfect, just as it is. Have fun dressing it up and painting it!
  • Whatever you wear - you Make it YOURS.
Q: Who are you, anyway?
A: I'm Omega. (yes, that's my real name!). I'm 5'3" and I'm a size 18-20. My birthday is in April (Aries) and I am 39. I have wild red hair and eyes that are sometimes blue, sometimes green and sometimes grey. I live with my wild poly tribe in Melbourne, Australia. I have a vegetable garden and pet bunnies in my front yard and chooks and a shed and a trampoline in my back yard. I have two wonderful daughters, one teen-aged and one toddler. If there's something else you'd like to know - ask!

Q: Why do you only blog clothes for fat people?
A: Because I'm fat myself! I'm really only interested in clothes I can wear myself, so if it doesn't come in a size 18-20 you will not see it on my blog. There's plenty of other places you can see clothes for smaller people. 

Q:What's with all the history trivia?

Q: How did you get your hair so bright?
A: My natural colour is a reddish brown (that would be mostly grey now if I didn't dye at all). I bleach my roots and dye using Goldwell Elumen. I freshen up with Directions Fire. I've been dying my hair red for over 15 years.
