Stripes Top to Bottom

Stripes, the bain of some women’s existence and a big supposed “no no” for plus size women.  Well, I say nuts to that! I’m a firm believer that one should wear what one wants!  This first look is from Reb Dolls.  I love this online retailer because they take a no holds bar approach to plus size fashions.  If you “dare to wear” body con dresses or crop tops, Reb Dolls will hook you up.

I quite honestly would never have worn a crop top let alone a crop top that was sleeveless but since starting this blog I feel as though I’ve given myself permission to wear what I want and my girls have definitely encouraged me to take some fashion risks.

I love the chevron pattern of this skirt and the “flowiness” of it too.  I finished the look with a faux leather jacket from City Chic online and added tangerine coloured wedge espadrilles for a pop of colour.

This skirt is tutu much for me!  I was a devoted viewer of Sex and the City so I was inspired to recreate Carrie Bradshaw’s outfit seen in the opening credits of the show.

I adore all shades of the colour blue so when I saw this tutu skirt on the Eshakti site I knew I had to have it. And the coolest thing about this fabulous skirt is that it has pockets!  Once again, this online retailer caters to women of all shapes and sizes from 0 to 36W and heights of 5’0ft to 6ft and beyond!

I paired my dream of a skirt with an off the shoulder striped number.  This outfit makes me feel as though I was Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.  I completed the look with fun polka dot pumps and a mint green purse.  Voila my spring look is complete!
