There have been so many examples from my fellow psbloggers that yes, we CAN wear crop tops and rock it! I have an increasing collection of crop tops and my Spring/Summer will be midriff central! Also, this outfit pretty much encompasses most things plus size women are told they shouldn't do:
- Midriff showing? Check!
- Tulle to add lots of volume? Check!
- Cut-off leggings? Check!
- Chipped nail varnish? Check!
- Molten dark lipstick? Check!
- Devil red sunglasses? Check!
- Zero eff's given? Total check!
Skirt: Simply Be
Crop Top: ASOS
Leggings: South (via Very)
I do love colour and lots of pattern, but I also love to channel my inner goth - and this outfit is a great example of doing goth with patterns. I LOVE this skirt by Simply Be! It may have something to do with polka dots (hehe) and it may also have something to do with the gorgeous tulle layer, but this skirt is so dreamy. It's definitely a dresser skirt, but I wanted an edgy look and something to counteract the sunshine. I paired it with a simple crop top (that I had to amateurishly scoop under my ample breasts because being 5' 1" does not allow much "crop"), cardigan, leggings (that I cut to mid calf), ankle boots, and finished off with a molten dark lipstick. I felt like a Goth princess all day.
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
Lipstick: Sleek Makeup (Shade: Cherry)
Oh yeah, I'm definitely a rebel. A rebel with a cause, to show that us plus size women can wear anything we want and look all kinds of awesome while doing so!
There's only one way to end this post. I end with a piece of fabulous street art me and my lovely friend visited on this very day. The ultimate fashion rebel, the wonder that is, Bowie:
'til next time.
Love and hugs,
