It’s been a while since I’ve done an “in the dressing room” post. I’ve been in a bit of a fashion rut again and am unsure about my style. I go through these periods now and then where I question what I actually like, and what I feel is pushed upon me by designers/stores/advertising/what fat women should or shouldn’t wear etc.
This is something that pushes me a little out of my comfort zone of what I normally wear, but OH MY GOSH, it was so comfortable, it felt like I was wearing pyjamas. First up, this top. THIS TOP. It is made out of the softest most beautiful material, it’s a little clingy, but I didn’t want to take it off. The back has a dip hem in a different material, but it was the front that I loved. I tried it on in a 20, and as you can see, it’s a super relaxed fit. The pants are a 20 as well, they have a fitted waist at the front but elastic at the front, which meant I could easily wear them high or on my hips. I’d have to have them taken up either way. I loved the speckled dot pattern and the roomy palazzo legs.
Swing Tee – $29.95 – Also in pink. Tried on in a size 20.
Palazzo Printed Pant – $49.95 – Tried on in a size 20.
This dress is something a little different for me too, mainly the colouring. Sure, back in the day, all I ever wore was black and red, but these days, I don’t have much red in my wardrobe. The neck is what drew me to this dress, and whilst it is available in a solid black, I really did love the rose pattern. I also just loved the cut of the dress, the fake small tulip of the skirt/hem. This is the dress in a size 20, and it fit well. If you have bigger boobs, this would fit you better. I found it was a little gape-y under the arms and I probably could have got away with a size smaller.
