Flaunting My Flab In An 80's Inspired Frock

Its just an illusion

I've been loving the illusion style dresses that have been featured in a lot of plus size ranges recently. Using two different colour's in clever cuts really enhances curvy body's and if like me you are rather thick around the waist they can make you look a lot more of an hourglass.

This Jacquard dress with an embellished neckline is a beautiful example by Pink Clove. What I particularly like about this fab black and white number is the embellished collar, it takes something quite simple and turns it into a real show stopper. 

The embellished collar takes it from classic to extra special

I know we are still a while away from thinking about Christmas party dresses but if you are someone who likes to get organised for the festive party circuit early you could do a lot worse than this frock.

The tummy area  has a slightly pouched ruched effect which is no doubt to hide your belly but in this fabric I'm not sure how keen I am on this. However it's a small niggle for such a fab dress at such a great price.Oh I haven't mentioned the price, this sexy little number is only £20-how amazing is that!!

A whole lot of dress for twenty quid
As you can see from these pictures this dress is slightly on the short side. I'm five foot three and it hits above the knee, this doesn't bother me (love me, love my chubby legs) but you can always team it with tights or leggings and ballet flats for a more Audrey Hepburn take on the outfit.
The length of this is slightly short but that's OK by me

I've teamed this with black wedges and a high ponytail and lots of limecrime pink rocket lipstick. It's slightly 80s power dress and I like it a lot.

Slight nod to 80's power dressing
Pink clove are proving to be a great site for affordable plus size clothes. I've already got my eyes on a tartan skater dress by them and at these prices I can have  a little splurge without denting my bank balance too much.

Flaunt your flab-its empowering
Worried that form fitted dresses are unflattering to fatties? don't be. These new illusion style dresses are great on all shapes and sizes and after years of wearing more flowing clothes in an attempt to "cover up" there is something really empowering about flaunting your flab for all to see and feeling freaking fabulous while you so it.
