Introduction

Hello and welcome to my new Funky, Punky, and Plump blog!

So, who the heck am I, anyway?

Well, my friends call me Sashi. Find out more about that over to the right somewhere. I am a big girl who has a fairly eclectic style that is somewhere between the punk and Goth label. Or "gunk" as one of my clever friends says.


Now, I don't know about all that but I know I like what I like. I tend to wear a lot of black and accessorize with pink and skulls. I'm like a 14-year-old girl trapped in a large 30-something woman's body... and loving every minute of it!

Well, almost.

It gets frustrating at times because most of the really cool already-made clothes tend to either not fit me or just not fit me well. Fortunately, I can kind of sew and know how to wield a pair of scissors!

As an example, I made this shirt last night from a skull polo shirt I got off of King Size Direct and a plain black t-shirt.

Heh heh... you can see my skull obsession in this pic as well with my necklace, watch, and skulls on the wall behind me on my whiteboard at work. :)

The base for this shirt was one of those fabulous surprise finds on a rather "vanilla" website. I originally got one for my hubby since he likes to wear polo shirts when he goes out and and... well... it had skulls on it which I like. ;) I was jealous, though, so had to get one to girly-up a bit.

Here are my plans for this blog:
  • Once a week, post a DIY project that is fitting for funky, punky styles and occasionally show my attempts
  • Post any surprising finds I encounter on mainstream websites (they're there if you are patient and just keep looking)
  • Once a week, feature other blogs and websites that I think others might enjoy... specifically artist, fashionistas, and indie shops
  • As I develop a readership following, I am also hoping to prompt positive discussions about being a person of size with punk and Goth aesthetics.
This will definitely be a work a progress, though, and I do hope that you will come back and visit often. Please feel free to comment or contact me with feedback so I can make this a good and useful site.

Until later, sweet p'taters!
Sashi

Got something to say? Then I wanna hear it! But if it's mean or an ad that doesn't fit with my blog theme, it may not stay for long. Just sayin'. :) And sorry about the word verification. I'm just tired of spambots invading my happy place. :P
