Outfit – Super cute plus size dog print dress!

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of heading into the city and having lunch at Rockpool. I’d never been into the casino before and boy is it beautiful! I only walked around the shopping area and into the restaurant, but it sure was fancy! Lunch was delicious, it was the tastiest meal i’ve ever had!

I had fresh oysters, hand dived Phillip Bay scallops with garlic butter and pangrattato. Cape Grim scotch fillet steak. Dutch cream potatoes sauteed with wagyu fat, garlic and rosemary. Mac & Cheese with speck. I was so stuffed by the end, I was glad for the walk back down Southbank to the station.

The weather was so lovely! I’d been eyeing this dress for awhile but I was unsure of sizing. I decided to bite the bullet and just order my normal size, and it fit perfectly! I was glad the weather was nice enough that I could wear it out, even though I had to add stockings and a cardigan.

Here is the dress without the cardigan. The sleeves are a good length and plenty roomy. It has a tie waist too which you can tie however you want too. This time I just pulled it tight and tied it at the back. The print is SO cute! Little dogs, some with red bow ties!

I decided on a pastel purple-y colour for my latest hair colour! This is currently a mix of La Riche Directions in Lilac and Brite Organix Grey. I want to try their pastel purple, but I haven’t been able to find it yet. I’m liking it so far, but can tell it’s going to need a fair bit of upkeep.

Big W have been KILLING IT with their tee range lately, in fact, this is the fourth one i’ve bought in the past few months. You can see the other 3 I picked up here, here and also here. They are super soft and comfy and resonably priced at $15. They go up to a size 3x (which I am wearing here) and different designs seem to come in different lengths. Normal or crop.

This Ghostbusters tee is a crop, and for the photos I have it tied up at the back and tucked up. I have included a picture of what it looks like loose, as you can see it has a nice oversized fit on me. It’s a little misshapen from the way I had had it styled.

I am just loving that the weather is starting to warm up, I’ll probably regret saying that in a couple of months, but it so nice to see the sun and feel it’s warmth. I’m looking forward to all the dresses and skirts I can wear again! That is one thing I miss about living in Sydney, that even in winter it was still a bit warmer and you could get away with dresses and skirt all year round.

Sunday Melbourne Fashion Week Plus OOTD!

Melbourne Fashion Week Plus Outfit - F*ck Flattering

Finally sharing my last outfit from Melbourne Fashion Week Plus! I know, it’s been a while, but I wanted to showcase everything I wore. I really love having an excuse to dress up and go out, as I live a pretty boring life generally (if you hadn’t noticed). While I do enjoy fashion and wearing fun clothes, these events I love just pushing my comfort zone and wearing things I might not wear to do the grocery shopping.

This was probably the outfit I felt least confident in, don’t get me wrong, I love it, it was comfortable and I got compliments on it, but I think by Sunday I was tired and would have much preferred to wear pyjamas! I am glad I got to rock my ‘F*ck Flattering’ top though.

I tried something a little different with my make up and went for a yellow/green eyeliner. Once I got into the show, I realised that both my eyeliner and earrings glowed under the lighting! You can kind of see that HERE.

After the show was the after party, I wasn’t planning on going, but ended up going and I’m glad I did. I had a lot of fun, but I got a tad bit drunk! I don’t usually drink much, I may have like one glass of alcohol every 2-3 months, well, this weekend I drank more than I do in a year! The jugs at The Highlander Bar were so delicious! I think the Violet Smash was my fave.

I really loved MFW+, I learned of some amazing new designers and caught up with old favourites. I got to hang out with my favourite Queensland ladies and met so many wonderful people I’ve known and admired online.
