Plus Size Outfit – Drawn to grey.

I’m back home in Melbourne and need to get back into the swing of everyday life again. It was great seeing family in Sydney and staying with my parents & their doggos. It’s good to be home though.

All the clothes i’m wearing I picked up in Sydney! I did a bit of shopping & had a bit of trouble fitting everything in my suitcase. I’m so in love with grey at the moment, I seem to picking up grey coloured items all the time lately.

I had to pick up groceries today and was excited I got to wear my new jacket, it’s COLD here in Melbourne! This jacket is so soft and made from a suede like material.  I was actually surprised it fit as I don’t usually try items from Rockmans. It was on sale for $50, down from $100. I love a good sale!

This top was love at first sight, even if it’s not something I would normally be drawn too. I just adored the colour combo of the navy blue and light pink. It is a stretchy light fabric that feels like you’re wearing pyjamas. The pants/leggings are a stretchy cord and I adored them so much I bought them in a navy blue. In case you can’t tell, I’m all about comfy clothes at the moment.

I have soooo many pins and I always forget to wear them, so when my kitty vibe pin arrived I moved all my pins to a more visible location on my dresser. I thought it went well with my ‘Babe with the power’ pin and the pinks made the colours in my top stand out a bit more.

Have you been drawn to a new colour lately?

Outfit – Whizz, Pow, Zip!

Plus size comic print inspired dress.

I remember this dress being a HUGE hit when it was released many years ago, the first batch sold out within 24 hours! You can see me wearing it as a top here. I decided to pull it out to wear today. I’ve been under the weather the last few weeks, but i’ve been feeling better these past few days, enough to rock some bodycon with a bit of VBO! Black really is a forgiving colour, isn’t it?

Bringing some extra colour in with this longline cardi I picked up from Rockmans last year. I’m not usually a fan of green, but this limey chartreuse yellow/green is a fave of mine. It’s funny how you can dislike most shades of one colour, but love one other shade.

Excuse the hair! I’m trying to fade the colour out as much as possible before I dye my re-growth and play with some colours to celebrate my 30th birthday coming up. I’m thinking a rainbow sand art type of colour. Something I wish Guy Tang would do to my hair, hey a girl can dream!

Can you notice something different about my face? Yes, I have officially retired my lip rings! I will miss them but I’ve been considering getting rid of them for awhile, it was just sentimentality that kept them so long. My grandmother paid for me to get one set done. I’ve had them for around 10 years now, it was time to say goodbye. It’s harder to see, but I still have my septum ring in.

I wasn’t originally going to share these photos, I took a few on my phone in my new rental property, but they turned out better then expected, so I thought I may as well use them! Sometimes I forget that my phone has a pretty decent camera. Ahh, technology!

Friday, I went to get the keys and check out the new place, I hadn’t actually seen it yet. However, the weather was utterly horrible! It was raining (& I didn’t have an umbrella), so I took a taxi to real estate agent and was planning on catching the bus home, as it looked like the rain cell would have moved on by then. Only thing is, I didn’t account for accidents and there were a few and the bus I was supposed to take had been detoured, so another taxi it was. (Which is now why I have $8 to my name until Wednesday).

So, basically, I went for comfort. It was cold and dreary. I also had my rain coat on over the top, which you can kinda see HERE. I always get compliments when I wear these leggings!
