Plus Size Silver And Black Outfit Inspiration

Last week I was delighted to be invited along with some other beautiful plus size fashion bloggers for dinner with plus size model Tess Holliday and Yours clothing. 
I have written a whole blog post about this fantastic experience which I will share later in the week but first wanted to show you my outfit. 
I didn't manage to get many outfit shots on the night itself so thought it deserved an outfit post all of its own.

When meeting someone as inspirational as Tess Holliday coupled with the fact that its an event held by a plus size fashion brand it can be quite tricky deciding what to wear.

Black and silver plus size style

I had planned an outfit of cigarette pants, heels and a suit jacket but London is incredibly warn at the moment and I feared I would melt into a puddle so at the last minute I decided that a sleek simple plus size look was the order of the day.
The lynch pin of my outfit was this beautiful  black long tunic with silver hand foil stag design which was made by a great independent company called 1 of 1 design.

Its a simple bat wing number in a soft cotton. As soon as I tried it on I fell in love as its both unique but also so stylish. Best of all its made by a company who hand dye, embellish and create many products based on found objects or using upcycling so ticks so many of my boxes.

Sleek glossy plus size chic

Keeping with the sleek silhouette I have worn my black PU panel skirt by Boohoo which always makes me feel fan  in a vaguely Kim K type of way.
Finishing off I took my black Vivienne Westwood bag and a pair of wide fit slingbacks my sunglasses are Chanel

To compliment all this noire fat sleek babeness I wore my hair down and straight. It was the perfect outfit for a perfect night. Plus size fashion at its best.

Plus Size City Chic

Its the beginning of silly season in plus size fashion. New collections, promotions and a general ramping up of fashion in general after a fairly sedate start to the year. 
This means I will be spending a lot of time in London which also means a lot of time on trains, pounding the streets, jumping tubes and generally being on the move.

Fatty Travel Chic

Staying cool and stylish whilst contending with someones armpit in your face (you have gotta love that underground) is always a bit of  a challenge so I thought I would share the outfit I wore to the big smoke earlier this week. It served me rather well indeed and shows that tailored lines can work really well on a soft round body.


UK plus size blogger
Comfortable yes,scruffy? never
I fell in love with these monochrome check cigarette trousers by Simply be as soon as I saw them. I love a cigarette pant but always worry that without a pair of heels they can end up looking a bit half and half, not a skinny jean, not a legging but these really work even paired with a pair of trainers. 
I am having a bit of a Rupert the bear moment trouser wise and there is a white pair like this featuring a black stripe which I have also got my eye on.I just love the cut.

Pounding the streets in a yobbish manner

My Black Nike airs are such a joy for days when I am standing or walking all day. I can manage wedges in the day but even kitten heels leave me hobbled after a few hours so these are perfecto.
My loose fitted knotted long sleeved tee in grey marl also by Simply be was a bit of a gamble as I wasn't sure how much I would like the knot at the front. Turns out I absolutely love it. yet again its such a great shape,slightly longer than the average tee shirt so isn't cupping my VBO in a vaguely protective manner but skims over it giving me a much neater line.

Get Knotted
My navy linen jacket is by Yours. Its in crisp navy with a contrasting polka dot lining and is fast replacing my black leather jacket as something I can chuck on with almost anything. Its such a good wardrobe staple and instantly feels chic and vaguely androgynous which given that I'm usually wearing false eyelashes and a lot of hair is wonderfully contradictory-standard.

Doncha wish your boyfriend (jacket) was hot like me

I must tell you about my amazing glass heart necklace which is by a lovely London based company called 1 of 1  
Based in Teddington They create jewellery using old watch parts, vintage crystal and small engineering components, melted glass, vintage toys and a range of other unlikely materials.which sounds a bit mad but as you can see their stuff is beautiful.

Heart of glass

They also create clothes using hand dying techniques  and designs based on found objects. I've got a fab top from them which I wore the other night to meet Tess Munster (post coming soon) which is so good.
My satchel is in my fave neon yellow which also seems to go with everything and my Sunglasses are Chanel

Sunglasses-vital for that sneaky doze on the last train home

This outfit weathered a super hot sticky day in London remarkably well and I felt as fresh and chic on the way home as I had on arrival. Bravo

What Would Elvis Do?

What would Elvis do?
For my husbands birthday last week he was brought a great sign which read "What Would Elvis Do?" It looks rather splendid hanging on the shed and every time I look at it I smile. It got me to thinking what if  applied this question to my own life. Would my decisions be better or worse if I channeled the King as I went about my daily business.Here are the results of my day behaving like the King of Rock n Roll.
7.30am
Its early, I'm tired. I need energy to get my little girl up and out for school. My usual breakfast consists of porridge made with soya milk and a green tea. As I start to prepare it I can't help thinking how nice a milky coffee with lots of sugar would be and actually those muffins look so much tastier than my boring oats. "What would Elvis do?" I ask myself. I think we all know the answer. I discard the healthy option and instead have the caffeine sugar binge. 
End result I'm slightly wired.
Sod porridge

8am
I'm getting ready to take my daughter to school.Usually I just tie a bandanna around my head to hide my bed head, but wait a cotton picking  minute "What would Elvis do?" With Elvis it was all about the hair so I give myself a quiff-perfect my sneer and we are off!
End Result-My hair looks great
Loving the quiff action
11am
I'm fabric shopping trying to get supplies for a batch of projects I need to do. I have quite  a few things to remember and need to concentrate. Out of nowhere an over jolly sales assistant spying that I am buying padding for use in quilting launches into a thirty minute recruitment drive for her local quilting group. "What would Elvis do?" I ask. Well Elvis was legendary for his southern charm and his respect for elders (this woman must be at least two years older than me) so making like Arron I smile politely and hide my irritation. 
End result. I am made really late and forget half the things I needed.
Acting like the King
1pm
Home and busy working on an article. The phone rings, a friend wonders if I'm free for a catch up. Ordinarily I would say no but then ask "What would Elvis do?"well Elvis put great importance by his mates-calling them the Memphis mafia and even taking them on his honeymoon. So instead of declining I go and meet my friend. 
End result.I have the happy glow that only good company creates,but am also hideously behind now with my work.
Elvis with his buddies
2.30pm
I'm in the garden, the sun is baking and I really should slap on my sun block and grab a big hat. "What would Elvis do?" well apparently he was a huge sun worshiper and would lie with a reflector next to his face to ensure maximum exposure. I can't quite bear to let myself get fried so spray on a weedy factor 20 on instead. 
End result-I now have  a sun burnt head.
Suntan lotion isnt Rock n Roll
3.30pm 
I collect my daughter from school and need to nip to the corner shop for milk. As usual she is putting the squeeze on me to buy her a magazine and an ice lolly and some stickers. Usually I would laugh in the face of such demands but today is Elvis day. Elvis was legendary in his generosity to both his friends but especially his family. Lisa Marie had a mini Shetland pony at the same age as my little one so I relent and let her have the lot. 
Result-My child thinks I have gone mad and I'm £10 poorer.

5pm
Its dinner time. I was going to make a lovely healthy stir fry but my daughter sensing that my defences are down is needling me to order pizza. "What would Elvis do?" I ask. Well as with breakfast this is a no brainer so Pizza it is. 
Result-Indigestion and a slightly hyper child.
Not stir fry again

7pm
My head is pounding from coffee and junk food and I'm wondering whether to take a headache tablet. Well as a final nod to Elvis day I do. Never a man to skimp on his pharmaceuticals its seems just daft to start being restrained about two aspirin.
End Result-No headache
Great sign-not so good as a lifestyle


To Conclude
My day as Elvis made my waistline bigger, my pockets emptier and my work schedule fall it disarray. I loved spending unplanned time with my friend and I made my daughter very happy, oh and my own mother would have been very impressed by my patience with the chatterbox sales assistant. Will I be using Elvis as my moral compass again? hell no, I think I will just listen to the music from now on.

Plus Size Monochrome Wish List

I know its spring and I should be all about the brights but this week I'm feeling all stripped back and tres chic. I'm hankering for some monochrome minxiness. Come and join me, we can listen to Goldfrapp and wear lots of eyeliner.


AX Paris Polka Dot Skater Dress Buy here
If Cruella De Ville gave up skinning puppies and decided to open up a tearoom this I believe is what she would wear. Which makes it irresistible  to me. just when you think the skater dress is dead, here you come again as Dolly once sang.

Here you come again
Just when I'm about to make it work without you


Asos Curve Sleeveless Tunic in Crepe with Split Sides Buy here
I confess that the word "tunic" ranks alongside seepage as an all time hated syllable but this sexy but oh so understated number allows me to forgive all that. This is like the clothing  equivalent of the mullet-but in a really good way. its business at the front and then party at the sides. My achy breaky wardrobe demands this tunic enters its universe as soon as pay day beckons.

My wardrobes loins are aflame for this tunic (words I never though to utter)

Midi Skirt in Sheer Stripe Buy Here
This skirt may be Marmite and divide all opinion but I just can't stop going and looking at it.I think it might be epic, its quirky and yet also so simple. I think I'm falling for its hem dithering qualities.


Half rice, half chips-is it a mini, is it a midi? Its the great confuser-this excites me.

Westwood Orb Watch Buy here
What time is it? Its time Dame Viv was on my chubby wrist and what better than a time piece that is the Robert Smith of watches. Black, Gothic and oh so cool.It's not Friday but I am in love.



Evans Patent Low Cut heels Buy here
My life is dictated to by which shoes I know I can control like the circus ring mistress I try to be and those which I am certain will chew my face off and leave my feet for dead. I think with a bit of gentle breaking in these wide fit shoes of loveliness could be my bitches.Sissy that walk.

Roar


Simply be Check Cigarette Pants Buy here
Yes I know there is more than a whiff of Rupert the Bear about these pants but oh my gawd I think they are just amazing. Imagine if you will, my chubby legs encased in these, a pair of ballet pumps on my feet and a crisp black shirt maybe topped with a jaunty scarf at my neck. Its Audrey Hepburn, its Roman Holiday its saying yes to plus size check trousers because by jingo I can.

Checked pants-they shouldn't work-they so do.

Black and Grey backwing Top Buy here
It would seem my ambition this month is to look like a marble top kitchen counter and hey guess what? I am styling this shiz out-big time.Its batwing coolness and yes I will be holding my hands out to the side like on the picture when I wear it.

Batwing finery that looks a bit like a kitchen counter.
Medusa fringed leather shoulder bag Buy Here
I have a theory that my life would be better if this handbag was on my arm. My bank manager disagrees, if looks could turn a person to stone .... He has no romance in his soul so for now my love for this arm candy is unrequited but one day my love, one day.
Oh golden faced object of desire-how my heart beats for thee

This brings us to end of our adventures in all things monochrome-please remember to take all your belongings as you leave the carriage and be sure to travel with me again.
