Aussie Curves – Texture

January 22, 2013

blackmilk-01This weeks Aussie Curves theme was texture, I was looking through my wardrobe looking at my clothes thinking “hmm, isn’t any fabric basically a texture?”. I couldn’t decide what I should wear. Then I was hit with inspiration, you see, I am a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan, if you’ve read my blog for awhile, you know that. Well, today Aussie label Black Milk released their Lord of the Ring/The Hobbit pieces and I’ve seen a few ladies wondering about the sizing.
blackmilk-02I’ve lusted after MANY Black Milk pieces and was always sad because they stop at a size L (They are apparently trying to extend sizes to an XL, some leggings are already available in XL), but looking at the sizing chart, I didn’t think any would fit me. I’d talked to a few ladies on Instagram, and when the after Christmas sales popped up, I bit the bullet and bought the Police Box Dress.
blackmilk-03It’s SO pretty, but that may just be because I love Doctor Who ๐Ÿ˜› I actually have it hanging up in my bedroom on display. Below i’ve taken some pictures of how it looks on MY body. I’m generally a size 20-22, if you want myย measurementsย let me know and I’ll try to find my tape. Does it fit me? Yes, it’s super stretchy. However, it is TIGHT, it’s good in the fact it does kind of ‘hold you in’, but as you can see it’s like a second skin. I am wearing a bra under this, and in the first picture on the left you can kind of make out my underwear lines.
blackmilk-05Personally, I don’t have the confidence to pull it off as a dress. Seeing as itย stretchesย across to fit my body it makes it super short. I do however wear it styled like I have for this post. I don’t think the print warps too much due to the stretching, and the material seems to pop back into place after wear.

  • It looks so awesome on you! I am so excited to get my lotr leggings in the mail, even if they don’t fit properly, I’ll make em fit. lol!!

  • Katie Spijkerman

    Will have to have a look at Black Milk, never heard of it, sounds like the have some neat stuff ๐Ÿ™‚
    maybe try the dress with a long line cardi and leggings if you want to display more of it, but aren’t quite confident enough to do so ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ZOMG TARDIS DRESS!!!! Love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Oooo great review! I’ve been looking at their stuff online after being at the Portable event in Brisbane with the designer? maybe the owner? I was like ‘what’s Black Milk?’ Errr, fail! Haha. Turns out it’s a BIG deal. A super big deal!

  • I LOLed at your “Any haters can suuuuuck it” . Love the attitude, matches the whole Black Milk look. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Omg! This looks amazing as a top though! I’ve been dying to see Black Milk clothing on a fat body, so yay, thanks for doing this. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Jocelyn ~ Mama’s Style

    Awesome, awesome, awesome! I’m a huge Dr Who fan girl, so of course I think you look fantastic. Love the fun pics too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • LOVE the Dr who black milk dress. Looks so rad!

  • beep

    Ooooooh YES PLEASE measurements! In centimetres. ๐Ÿ™‚ Damn it I thought I wouldn’t have to worry about not being able to afford Black Milk stuff since it doesn’t fit me anyway. But now…

  • Good on you! I don’t have the cuts to wear any of their dresses, but I hadn’t considered wearing another skirt over them, like I do with their swims! Meanwhile, I want ALL of their LotR/Hobbit leggings. It’s just so unfair that I can’t afford ANY right now ๐Ÿ™

  • You look FANTASTIC! x

  • Courtzie

    Holy heck you look damn amazing! This is the first time I’ve ever seen BM on a larger lady and you rock it so well. Now that I know my body will most likely fit in to BM the only thing stopping me from buying anything is my lack of money.

  • Scarlet

    Thank you for being brave and amazing!

  • Aww, thank you for reading and commenting! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hee, thank you! I was a little nervous about posting actually, but I had a few people ask and I figured, well, I have posted a pic of me in my underwear, so why not this! Oh and I know, I wish I could afford more, I see some girls post on the BM page saying they bought like 5 pieces and I think “woah, that’s like, a couple months saving for me!”.

  • Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Yes! I want to try the swimsuits, but I figured if I could fit anything it’d be the dress, as I dont have to worry about the crotch, it could stretch sideways as much as it wanted. I’ve bought one of the LoTR dresses, I really couldn’t resist and had saved since I heard of the collection. I mean, I already have around $3000 worth of LoTR merch as it is, why not more!? :p

  • When they had the sale on, and it went down to $50, I was like “Damn it! I MUST HAS! It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t fit, it will still be able to look pretty”. My brain works in weird ways ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Yay! Thank you! How amazing is Doctor Who!!

  • No problems! I’m glad I’ve helped some other ladies in seeing what it looks like on a bigger body!

  • I was a bit nervous about posting the pictures, I’ve noticed some black milk fans can be judgmental but I love the dress, and I think I style it in a way that works for me and my body.

  • Oh, it is HUGE! HUGE! SUPER HUGE! I’ve been a fan from when JL started off and was only a tiny little operation, so to see it grow so large that he’s in the US looking for a space to launch a warehouse overseas is amazing!

  • That was my first reaction when they first released it, when it dropped to half price I couldn’t resist buying it!

  • Yeah, I was thinking of that once the weather cools down a little!

  • Heheh, I know the feeling! I ordered the dress and am hoping to save some more money to add another piece or two to my collection!

  • Gah. Total evidence of my no-cut-out-ness for TRUE fashion blogging. Haha.

  • Courtzie

    You’re welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ It is insane how many pieces some people buy at once, I can only dream of owning some BM at the moment.

  • Ezmae Reid

    such a great look on you, I love that skirt. I admit I have never even watched an episode of Dr Who, but the dress is super cool and looks good on you!

  • “any haters can suck it” LOL! Love your duck face at the end. I love the new banner too. So many changes everywhere I go. It is amazing what changes when I am away.

  • I AM SO JEALOUS. I love the way you styled it. I want Doctor Who related clothing so badly!
