Nude is back!

June 13, 2010

Hey everyone! Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!

I resisted nude for the past couple of days but couldn't help myself today! I found this skirt at the back of my closet and never had any intentions on wearing it before, infact the tags were still on until today! Horizontal stripes, bad fitting, makes me look even bigger than I am, etc. I wore it anyways and honestly it wasn't that bad. It did make my bottom half look a lot bigger than it is.. maybe I should care, but I don't.
I also wore this jacket which was also abandoned until today. It was definitely not made for a bigger girl, but I couldn't resist it in store because the nude and black worked so perfectly together.
I have a really bad habit of buying things because they're cute but don't flatter my figure. I do try to wear flattering clothes as often as possible but sometimes there's just that one thing that is too cute to pass up even though it makes you look ridiculous!

Excuse my ridiculous poses! I always feel so awkward in front of the camera. I'm so used to being behind it and telling other people what to do, yet i'm useless when it comes to taking my own pictures!

This outfit is proof that plus sized girls can shop in straight sized stores. You just need to spend time trying things on and know what material and cuts will fit you. The top is a size UK 14, the jacket and skirt are both size UK 16, i'm a UK 18! Don't completely rule out shopping at "regular" stores!


Ps. I made a formspring.me account incase any of you want to ask me questions anonymously. It's rather silly because you are all welcome to ask me questions using your name and I wouldn't mind, but anyhow! I was beginning to feel like one of the only bloggers who hadn't signed up there. Click here for my formspring page to ask a question!

Pps. I'll announce the winner of my giveaway soon! Thanks to everyone who entered! As promised I will have another little giveaway when I reach 200 followers to give something back to my readers. It means so much that you all enjoy my blog!

  1. I love this outfit on you - don't think you look ridiculous in the slightest!

    That jacket is just gorgeous :)

    Tis a good point you make about 'regular stores' - I think lots of shops just have stupid sizing, so it's always worth trying something if you like it, even if on paper it's not your size!

  15. You look really gorgeous and I think both the skirt and the coat look amazing on you! I like to buy things that are not "flattering", but I think that when we like them they became part of our style and I don't really care if I should wear it or not LOL! :)

  16. I totally do the same thing - buy things because they are cute regardless of whether they flatter me or not!
    However, this outfit lookg gorgeous on you! I especially love the striped skirt! (Also loving the wee pink streaks in your hair!) :D x

  18. That coat is to die for. I love it!

  19. I don't think in makes your bottom half look bigger, the skirt just has a bit of volume so it looks like maybe you have a petticoat type skirt underneath... it's a pretty look though, you look lovely x

  25. I absolutely adore this outfit! I wish I could be as creative and open-minded with clothes as you. I love the details (loving the bracelet!) and in my opinion the coat suits you well. You're one of the prettiest girls I've seen and I love your make up and outfits! I love you!

  29. id just like to think why you look ridiculous or unflattering in this? you look really nice and the colours go fab together. seriously your not as big as you think you are at all and you have really nice legs and a really good sense of style. i loooove that skirt too, will definitely be purchasing it. is it in recently? i have that marc b bag too, its soo nice but my clasp comes un-done and ive lost many an expensive pieces of makeup on a night out, so watch out if its new!<3 love your blog! xox

  30. Well I think you look fantastic! I don't think the skirt makes you look bigger! It's a flouncy type skirt, it's the way the sit!

    I love the colour pallette you wear, I wish I could wear & look as confident as you do in lighter colours, I'm much more of a darks girl!

    ReplyDelete
  31. that skirt is beyond amazing! x

    ReplyDelete
  32. you look amazing as per usual! your really such an inspiration for girls of a larger size! if your "plus size" you dont have to have no style! plus you really inspire me because i really think your totally gorgeous!

    your mac is amazing too! id really love a nice nude coloured one for the summer!

  33. Gorgeous! I love the bows in your hair - perfect for your nude and black theme.

    I'm a sucker for pretty things that don't flatter me too - although you look wonderful here and I think everything you're wearing complements your figure perfectly! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cute outfit, love the little bow in your hair! Your eye makeup is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think it can be quite hard to dress for your shape all the time - it's too limiting about wearing certain things because they might not be quite as flattering as they could be - that outfit looks fab though with the nipped in waist, and with your legs out it balances the wide skirt :)

  36. Wow, so chic and stylish, you rock girl!:D and pretty make up too. HUGS!

  37. I'm loving the horizontal stripes on the skirt! It's sort of a more original way to wear a classic Breton stripe. *taking notes*
