As I was away in the Blue Mountains this weekend, I was hardly about to whip out the summer wardrobe but I did have this velvet cropped jacket:
It's from Domino Dollhouse - which is fast becoming one of my favourite plus size stores. It's from last season (as usual: am crap at blogging current things) so apologies if it's sold out!
I also love how it features this cute contrast satin spotted lining (please excuse the care tag):
The stripey dress I'm wearing it with is from Rockdale Vinnies (my lucky op shop) and is actually a sz 12. It was actually designed to be more of a baggy drop-waisted top with ankle length skirt but once I ripped the teeny size 12 lining out, I found that it's baggy exterior actually fit me quite well as an (albeit tight) higher waisted fitted number.
I seem to have a lot of luck with drop waisted 80s dresses designed for smaller sizes so my opshopping tip for larger ladies is to definitely keep your eyes peeled for these styles and give them a go.
What I'm wearing:
- Stripey 80s dress from Rockdale Vinnies
- Black skull ankle boots by Demonia (scored at Vinnies for $15)
- Angular cat eye sunnies from Dangerfield $12
- Multi-coloured beaded bib necklace from Brixton markets, London
