Lustlist – End of April loves.

Oh heyyy! It’s been an age since I’ve done a lustlist! Well, a couple of months at least. I’ve not online browsing too much. My cat is sick (i’ll do a post about that later) and all money is going to vet bills. I can be an emotional shopper so, i’ve not been tempting myself. These are a few things I have stumbled across and wanted to share.

RIVER ISLAND – Plus pink tie dye sequin shell T-shirt – $52.00 || I’m not a huge fan of shirts TBH, but this one just calls out to me! Colourful, sequins, boobs, it’s totally mermaidtastic!

ASOS – Daisy Street Plus Mesh Insert Jersey Dress – $49.00 || So, this Lustlist, you may see that it includes many sname pieces. Now, you may not know snakes are my FAVE animal. Yes, snakes. The thing is, you don’t normally see many snake things. Thank you Gucci for bringing snakes into fashion!!

ASOS – Pleated Skirt in Metallic with Sports Waistband – $59.00 || I have a similar holographic silver skirt that I love, but this is pink, and a total show stopped!

ASOS – Cropped Metallic Cagoule Jacket – $88.00 || Always in need of more jackets since I moved to Melbourne.

EGO – Kassia Blue Snake Ankle Boot – £39.99 || Snakkkkes! Ego had a few snake items they selled out super fast.

ERSTWILDER via HUG ME HARRY – Theodore The Trim Taipan Brooch$34.95 || My parents bought me my first Erstwilder brooch around 4 years ago, maybe 5. I’ve been collecting them ever since.

ERSTWILDER via COCONETTE OZ – Senpai the Sensitive Brooch – $28 || Pink, kitty and ON SALE!

SARSPARILLY – Turn My World Print Cotton Dress – $291.17au || The only way this dress could be more perfect, was if it was Jareth on the print. However, I’d take Sarah. How stunning is this though? The cut/style is perfection!

ERSTWILDER via COCONETTE OZ – Sunny Smiles Brooch – $25 || Another SALE brooch, I’m going through a real brooch phase atm. It’s not being helped by a facebook group i’m on!

BLACK MILK – Rave Snakes Velvet Cropped Leggings – $70au || I haven’t bought any Black Milk in awhile, but these are screaming my name. I’d love to try more of their new styles to add to me ‘Black Milk on a Plus Size body‘ page.

BLACKMILK – Audubon Owl Pocket Midi Skirt – $120 || Owls are my 2nd favourite animal, and while I don’t wear a lot of brown (it was my school colour), I just can’t go past the print on this. Plus it is a midi skirt WITH POCKETS!

LA VIDRIOLA – Snake Earrings – 39.00 € || These earrings are GOALS, they have a matching necklace too which makes me turn into the heart eyed emoji!

CITY CHIC – Rose Adore Dress – $139.95 || I’ve been rocking my other CC Rose print dress all over the place, but I love the skater style of this dress, plus the added mesh! CC you are doing it right!!

But wait… there’s more!

TORRID – Boyfriend Jeans with Star Wars Patches – $98.90 || Guh! Torrid, why do you do this to me!? These are the perfect looking jeans to me, then add in the Star Wars patches, and just, YESSSS!

HOT TOPIC – Harry Potter Hufflepuff Joggers – $38.90 || Do I really need to explain these? PUFF PRIDE!

TORRID – Star Wars Droid Tatooine Bomber Jacket – $88.90 || Mmhmm, you know I need this bomber jacket!! The only thing better than this would be if they did an Ewok one! (Please, make an Ewok one and send me 2!)

HOT TOPIC – Miss Peregrines Emma Bee dress – $54.90 || I quite liked the Miss Peregrines movie, but this dress spoke to me on another level. I love bees and bee print (Yes, I am animal crazy, you hadn’t noticed?) and the cut of this dress makes it look like one that would be SO easy to wear.

TORRID – Bowie Goblin King Scoop Tee – $34.90 || Labyrinth, ahh, Labyrith. This is my ALL TIME favourite movie. I’ve easily seen it over 100 times and can quote it off by heart. This shirt almost makes me want to cry. Long live Jareth <3

Sadly, I never really order from Torrid or Hot Topic, no matter how much I love them. Their shipping is just crazy, not something I can justify. It starts at $58us, so to buy that Bomber alone it would cost $195.88AU 🙁

What is at the top of your wishlist?

 

OOTD – Plus Size black velvet and denim.

It’s crazy to believe how cold Melbourne has been the past few days. Technically it’s still summer here, but I’ve had to turn the heater on! Not that I’m complaining, I much prefer the cold. Are you sick of me talking about the weather? I guess I’m still so confused by Melbourne weather that it’s something I talk about often.

Plus Size OOTD - XL as Life

I’d been eyeing these jeans for ages, they even appeared several times on Lustlist posts. You know I really love something if it appears more than once on a lustlist post. When they went on sale I snapped them up in preparation for my next Tasmania trip.

The top was a spur of the moment decision, which I do no regret. I like to have a good selection of black tops, and this was different from any others I own. I picked it up on sale from Missguided and am really in love with it. It’s super comfy and I love way it sits.

Plus Size OOTD - XL as Life

SIZING – I’ve only bought tailored pants from River Island previously and I sized up with those. For these, I went for a size 22 and they fit well. A little tight around the waistband, but after an hour they stretched out a little to be more comfortable. The legs are a skinny fit, which is a first for me, so if you have thick calves, beware of that. To me, these fit like an ASOS Ridley jean is a 20.

I also have to remember that when I wear velvet, I should give it a going over with a lint roller before I leave the house. Otherwise, the velvet turns into cat-fur! Haha!

Do you prefer summer or winter?

Melbourne Fashion Week Plus – Outfit of the launch Party!

Slowly making my way through all of the photos taken over the last weekend at Melbourne Fashion Week Plus. Nearly 2000 files. I had such an amazing time, the shows were great and there were some really stand out designers and clothing. The past few days have been pretty full on with hardly any sleep and I admit, I’ve drunk more in the past week then I do in a year. It was the most fun I’ve had in a while, and I’m missing the QLD crew already!

Launch Party OOTD for MFW+ (ft River Island)

So this outfit is actually a little out of my comfort zone, but hey, that’s what fashion is about at times! Trying new things. I don’t wear pants often, and if I do, they tend to be leggings or something stretchy, these pants have zero stretch and are quite fitted.

I actually got quite a few compliments on the outfit, and I think I was probably one of the most comfortable people at the party! I wasn’t quite happy with my choice of shoes, but I couldn’t figure out a pair that were comfortable, as my foot was hurting that day. It’s been 8 months since I fractured my foot and it still has it’s moments when it’s painful.
