As I mentioned in my last post, I did end up walking out of Crossroads with something. That something was this dress! This was by far my favourite. A midi dress in a striped print. This dress kind of makes me think of the Pyjama trend that is going around, but in dress form.
I originally tried on the 22, but sized down to the 20. It’s still very roomy, but I like the billowy feel of the dress. Oh, and one of my favourite things, IT HAS POCKETS!
I love the fact I can layer underneath, I wore this out last week with a thermal top and leggings underneath. If I was even colder, I’d add a jacket. The material, however, is lightweight enough I could wear it in summer.
How cuuuute is this necklace? I couldn’t resist when Punky Pins recently had a sale. I picked up a few cute necklaces & earrings. This sloth one is my favourite.
I paired it with my pom pom sandals that I haven’t worn near enough. I need to find some shelving for my wardrobe so I have easy access to all my shoes.
Are you a fan of midi dresses?
It’s been an age since I’ve done an “In the dressing room” post, but I was truly inspired when I walked into Crossroads today. Crossroads can be very hit or miss with me. They are on trend, but often stick to a few particular trends, some which aren’t my style. However, when they do go with a style I like, I find I often want to walk out with multiple bags filled with clothing!
This skirt is something I would never have thought I’d have loved, but it just called out my name. Very 70’s boho. I picked up this top just to try the skirt on with, but really loved the shoulder cut out details! The largest size they had of the top was a 16, but it’s super stretchy (and really comfy). The skirt showed off a little VBO but I also wasn’t wearing the best underwear for trying clothes on.
This is a super cute tunic, which you could possibly get away with as a dress if you’re my height or shorter. I loved the lace up details and the stripes. Also POCKETS!
I can’t find it on the site but it was $39.95 (Size 22)
I’m loving the geometric trend, as you can probably tell. This dress was on the mannequin outside and is what drew me in to check out the store. Very roomy and comfy, I love the wrap style and sleeves that can be pinned up. I just wish the colour was a white not a beigey-cream.
I allllmost bought this! The tie up collar and stripes just made me like it, but it was the sleeves that made me fall in love! Sleeve details are IN at the moment and not many plus size stores have picked up on it. They didn’t have this is the 22, so I tried the 20 on and it fit me great.
These were the things I didn’t buy! I did pick up an amazing dress, but you’re going to have to wait until next week to see it in an Outfit Post! (Unless you want to head over to Crossroads and try and pick what I bought!)
Which outfit is your favourite?
Do you have those days when you just want to put on your comfiest clothes and crawl onto the couch and not move? I’ve been having a lot of those lately, but alas, being an adult means you often have to suck it up and do what needs to be done. I still want to dress comfy, but if i’m heading out, I like to put a little more effort into my outfit.
My favourite thing at the moment is this jacket. It’s great for Melbourne weather, it’s warm and comfortable. The main section being denim and the rest being a thick stretch jumper material. I don’t tend to like full denim jackets as I find them a little stiff, but these sleeves (and removable hood) make it fit perfectly.
I decided to customise it with a whole lot of pin back buttons, some of these are soooo old! I also plan to put some of the iron on patches I own on the back! If you want to know where a specific pin came from, leave a comment and I’ll try and remember where its from!
These leggings are proof to check out straight sized stores. These are from Supre! I actually have a few things from Supre. It still amuses me to see how on trend and young girl marketed Supre is these days, as when I was young it had a lot of daggy track suits and more in the way of comfort wear. That’s probably showing my age!
Don’t mention my hair! I’d forgotten how fast some colours fade! The blue lasted so long in my hair, and now that sunset colour has washed out majorly. Anyone want to come over and dye my hair for me? Also, super fresh faced. Just out of a long bath and a facemask, so no make up.
One thing I’ve learnt since moving to Melbourne, is that hoods come in handy! Especially if you don’t carry an umbrella around with you. I’ve been caught out in a random rain shower more then once and have been saved by a hood. Though on the way home from the airport with all my luggage, a lovely lady walked up to me whilst I was waiting in the rain at the crossing, and she walked me all the way to the bus stop with her umbrella. It was so lovely of her, so thank you random wonderful woman. Thank you.
