Outfit: Florals and studs

Hello! I’ve been super busy of late, unfortunately nothing to do with fashion. I’ve finally finished my album reviews for my friend Tiffany’s zine, Drunken Werewolf, so I am back to poring longingly over fashion week photos and adding plus size retailers’ awesome new looks to my winter wishlists! In the meantime, here’s a quickie outfit from Friday, featuring a new dress teamed with some old favourites:

Dress: Evans
Cardigan: Peacocks
Shoes: New Look
Bag: Primark

I finally caved and bought this dress after a whole summer of dithering, haha. Apparently I’m not the only one: check out the lovely Bloomie for her incredible take on it! I do love it, especially the length – though I can imagine a lot of taller women would have had to pass it up for the same reason, which is a shame. You know, I’m getting a bit sick of wearing that cropped cardigan, I admit it! It’s just that I’m not as far along on my body acceptance journey as I’d like, and the idea of going out in public with bare arms terrifies me. Ah well. My friend later tied the cardigan up at the back so it fitted as a shrug, though we didn’t have a camera by then!

Then we have the bag…

Oh dear. Seeing as the biker look is only fleeting (it looks like it’ll almost be gone by spring 2010) I didn’t feel like splashing out on expensive studded garments, so instead bought some pyramid studs for cheap on eBay and thought I’d do it DIY style. This bag had been languishing at the bottom of my drawer for years, so I thought it would be a decent practice run. Alas, my attempt at a heart shape didn’t exactly go to plan despite my methodical approach – it looks more like an arrowhead! But it’ll do for the time being. I just hope my sewing skills will fare better!

    I love the dress on you! I tried it during the Summer but it was way too short one me. Damn you Evans for pulling a Dorothy Perkins! lol

    And good job on the bag! I love studs but I am too lazy right now to start customizing things. lol

    Ow, I realy like the dress on you..I also had out an eye on it ^^ and I know the problems about bare arms, T-Shirt is okay, but nothing without sleeves or even strapless, then I always wear a cardigan about it…sigh…but maybe someday we will come over that, too :]
