The plus size section of Target has been pretty dim lately, nothing has caught my eye in months, but I still always go and check it out, just in case. Well, I was surprised when I ducked in yesterday to find a few cool offerings from the Belle Curve for Target range. When the brand launched at Target, it started out with a bang (See here), but I don’t think it overly sold well, and in the end it seemed like they were just re-branding a lot of Moda stuff with the Belle Curve name.
This dress caught my eye immediately, the colour blocking of this dress really appealed to me. While it is one of those ‘sack like’ dresses, it had a nice slinky feel to it & I think it would look great belted. It would certainly work well for summer. The blue matched my glasses!
This jacket made me want to purr, in fact, I was really sad to take it off. The draping was fabulous, IT HAS POCKETS, and the sleeves can be buttoned up (They’re buttoned up in the photos). It’s not a heavy materiel, so it would make a great layering piece, and also would work well for those like me, who run warm and get over heated easily.
Here is the coat again, over the outfit I was wearing. Looking at the Belle Curve range online, they have a few more fun pieces that I didn’t see at my local store. I’m liking the look of this mesh top.
Have you found anything you love in a store lately that you didn’t expect to?
To me, this outfit just makes me think of the 90s, a very monochrome toned 90’s (my hair excluded). I think it’s the beret. One thing I’ve been learning since my move to Melbourne, is layering. The weather here is, well, ever changing, so layers help keep you warm, or cool off.
Pants UNDER dresses. Yep, I did it. I remember going to school wearing my school dress, but then chucking on a pair of tracky dacks underneath to keep warm, knowing that i’d strip them off half way through the school day, and Voilà I’m still in uniform.
I blame Margaret Zhang for my current love of pants under dresses. And yes, this is a dress. I wore it a few weeks ago (with just stockings underneath). Layering can turn any summer dress into a winter favourite. I really fell in love with the different textures & corset feature on the front of this dress.
Stern face? I always think I look a little weird if i’m not smiling. I don’t have chronic bitch face, but it’s not exactly super friendly either.

What are your thoughts on pants under dresses?
Pink is always a hair colour I come back to, it’s what I like to call my ‘natural’ colour, but every now and then, I like a change. I’m hoping to get on my way to purple & green, but they are two colours I don’t actually have right now, so I sorted through my stash & decided to go with one of my previous favourite colour combos.
I had pink/orange/yellow balayage probably around 10 years ago now, and I loved it. This time I did the front a balayage, and the underneath a yellow/orange. (I want to go neon green underneath, so slowly getting that area lighter & lighter)
