Stripes! I have to say, stripes are always something I’ve been drawn to. I’ve never listened to the whole “fat people shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes”. In fact, I wore a striped dress to MBFF 2 years ago.
Around the same time last year, we had the same theme of Stripes and I wore my leggings (see here), so I dug into my closet for something different. Luckily, I got this jacket out of layby the past week! Perfect! City Chic have released a whole lot of striped things recently, and after trying on nearly everything, I settled on this jacket. It’s lightweight and super comfy.
The dress is a Kmart score, from their straight section in a size 18. It’s a bit short, but it’s sooo comfy and I have a feeling it will probably get a lot of wear this summer. I don’t usually go for things that are so tight and have a seam at my hips, but I think it looks okay styled like this. Plus, it was $15!!
I’m really really loving the monochrome trend at the moment, I already have a fair amount of black in my wardrobe, but white is a colour I never thought i’d wear. Its funny how times change. I never thought i’d ever be blonde either! Dress – Kmart | Jacket – City Chic | Shoes – To be Announced via Solestruck | Bow – Etsy

This weeks Aussie Curves theme was ‘DARK’. Now that’s something I could do. As a teen, I was constantly called ‘goth’, I dyed my hair black, liked spikes and cuffs, wore my Dr Marten boots with my school uniform, so yeah, I guess you could have called me goth. I wore a lot of black because that was avilable to me, as a plus size teen I didn’t have many options. I think that is one of the reasons why I love fashion so much these days.
It’s funny how we grow and evolve. This obviously isn’t something I’d wear everyday. Yes, I’d wear elements of this outfit, but as a whole look, no, not unless is was a fancy dress party. Flash back 8 – 10 years ago and I would be in heaven, I would have never ever took this outfit off. So no, I didn’t wear this outfit all day, or even out of the house.
I think I look a bit like a futuristic goth hooker. I actually asked my brother to take these photos for me and his reaction to my outfit was rather amusing. So, thanks Daniel for being an awesome big bro! Oh and of course Frodo decided to get in on the action.

My favourite brand of lipstick by far is Lime Crime
, I actually own 7 of their lipsticks. Centrifuchsia
is usually my ‘go to’ lipstick, but I picked up Poisonberry
the other week and i’ve been constantly wearing it. I love it!

This is a bit of a crazy outfit, what can I say, sometimes I just embrace my eclectic side. Getting dressed that morning I decided to wear to pink, and seeing as I was staying home, I decided I could break the ‘leggings as pants’ rule. I mean, it would only be my parents seeing me, oh and of course everyone who reads my blog!
I was having a day where I just wasn’t feeling ‘myself’. A bit down in the dumps and unsure of everything. Moving, men, and menstrual cramps are to blame. So, I decided to put on some make up. Don’t ask what’s up with my hair, I don’t know.
You may have noticed I don’t wear white, well, not very often. When I stumbled across this top at Big W, I couldn’t resist. A cute dog in pink glasses, for $12! YES! I only wish my matching pink Jono Hennessy glasses
weren’t at the new place!
Do you wear leggings as pants at home?
