Day 948 - I'm Going To Break Me A Million Hearts
Shoes: Black patent heart peep toe Moschino Cheap & Chic
I had a busy weekend, but am on a mission to catch up on blog posts today! This outfit from last week features two new items and a cardigan I've never worn before. The cardi was something unusually I spied instore (usually I browse online and know what I want before heading to the shops). I knew exactly how I wanted to style it but for some reason it's sat unworn all these months. This is the type of thing I used to wear a lot (in my early 20's)-I was all about pencil skirts and fitted tops back then! Despite being twice the size I was then, it's actually a style that still works for my curvy figure. I don't think plus-size women should be made to cover their curves in billowing fabrics if they don't want. Celebrating and emphasising your shape can often create a much more flattering look than hiding those curves. I really loved this outfit and felt awesome in it, so that's all that matters to me. I've been desperate to track down another black pencil skirt and found this one in Primark which fitted the bill, it's got a velvet baroque floral design on it and just pulls on with an elasticated waist. I bought mine a size smaller as I wanted a snug fit and it's just perfect on me. It's got some stretch to it, but is quite stiff, so you feel it really pulls you in. I also got some shapewear at the time, a little black slip, so wore that underneath for a smoother silhouette. I also teamed it with these stunning Disney tights, how cool are they? You'll have already seen them if you follow my Facebook or Tumblr. They are sheer nude with Minnie and Mickey Mouse on the backs of the legs, that kinda look like tattoos. So awesome! Then there's the shoes, as if the outfit was fabulous enough! Are we liking this look?
Wearing: Leopard print cardigan Star by Julien Macdonald, pencil skirt, Mickey Mouse tattoo tights Primark, red patent belt gift (Madeira).
Fit: 4 1/4" heel, a little generous in the heel.
Comfort: No issues with these and easy to walk in.
