The Cat’s Meow

Sometimes I just need to indulge in total cuteness with my outfits. This was one of those days. It started off with just the cute kitty sweater but then I just needed to keep on adding more elements of cuteness! I don’t care if I went overboard, I need to spread my cuteness love with the world!

Show your Bows

Here’s an outfit I wore recently for a night out with friends.

Top: City Chic size small
Shorts: Asos size 18 but taken in because they were too large at the waist.
Bow pin: taken off another shirt from New Look
Ring: NY & Company
Earrings: Miss Selfridge
Bracelet: Craft Show
Shoes: JC Penney
Bag: Gift from a friend, from Hot Topic i think

I’m not going to lie, as much as I am in love with these shoes, they didn’t make it past the getting ready stage. Even though I’ve worn them to work a few times and out on dates, I realized that they probably would not be good for $2 drink specials, dancing, and most likely falling over; so I opted for a pair of ballet flats instead.

Let’s talk about how cute this shirt is for a minute though. I don’t think you can see it from the pictures, but the bows covering it have little polka dots on them, It was like the most perfect shirt ever…almost.

I just felt like something was missing, and that was of course a GIANT BOW!
I removed a bow pin that came with another shirt of mine and tried it on with this top. Voila! It was a matched made in cuteness heaven and I was in love!

Now for the velvet shorts; I bought these a while ago from Asos expecting to wear them more for winter and with tights underneath. But I seem to be having a hard time figuring out what size I am in their bottoms. Their tops and dresses run pretty big and I can often go down to even a size 14; so according to their measurements I thought I would be safe ordering a 16 in bottoms. I ordered to pairs of jeans in 16s and I could barely get them up my thighs. I exchanged them for 18s and bought these shorts in an 18 with them. The shorts were huge, one pair of the jeans fit great, and the other fir but gaps like crazy around my waist and is still a little tight on my thighs. After I altered these shorts, I was very happy with them, and anything velvet pleases me greatly so I may wear them more for summer evenings. I am probably not going to be ordering any more pants from Asos though as I would need to be able to try them on first.

Velvet and Love

Life has been pretty boring lately; I haven’t been doing much and haven’t had too many reasons to dress for anything fun, thus the lack of posts lately. But I wanted to post today, just to clarify to the entire internet world that I am in love with Velvet.  It’s one of my favorite trends and fabrics ever. It feels so luxurious lol even though it’s probably really cheap.  I want to wear everyday or until it gets too hot out, then I will go somewhere cold and wear it some more.

Here is an outfit with double velvet…


(Once again I have to apologize for poor picture quality, I have to play with my camera settings and figure out why they keep coming out like this)

Velvet top: New Look UK size 20

Watch: Betsey Johnson (Gift from mom)

This was my first time shopping with New Look and I was very happy with my purchases, it definitely won’t be the last. The top also featured lace shoulders and back.

So yes this outfit contains velvet, florals, and lace; I’m so girly.

I also want to brag about my shoes! I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair of metallic oxfords since trying on a clearance pair at Kohl’s and putting them back because I thought they might have been too tacky. Since that day I have been longing for that tackyness back in my life. I found these beauties on the last days of Shoewoo.com’s closing clearance sale. The beautiful pewter color made them look so fun but gave a more subdued look and professionalism compared to the original cheapy pair I wanted. And trusted me these were not cheap either, their original price was $180!!! But I picked them up at a steal of $40 bucks, shoe worshippers delight!

Looking Out for Spring: Bohemian Style

Where I live it has snowed at least once a week since christmas, and frankly I’m sick of it. It’s supposed to snow again tomorrow night; I’m so tired of wearing my big puffy jacket and snow boots! I am so ready for spring time, warm weather, flowers, light dresses, and open-toed shoes.  I am completely looking out for spring and the fashions that come with it. So far one of my favorite trends for spring is the bohemian look.  Fashion is being inspired by the early 1970s with wide leg jeans, flowy airy fabrics, floppy hats, fringe, and light flowers.  I am totally going to jump on the peace wagon for this one; it looks so fun and easy to wear. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve seen peeking out in the plus sized world.
