A few weeks ago, the very lovely @Ilaeria sent me this dress that she had bought that didn’t quite fit her properly so she thought that it might fit me a bit better. That it does! Although it is possibly a bit too tight, but I’ll let you all be the judge.
Although, having worn it today, I did find that it stretched a little bit with wear and became quite comfortable. I also think that I look pretty damn good. Plus Man Piece likes it. Always a bonus.
It is from an Australian store for plus size women called noXceptions and I do have to say, I quite like the store! When I do get a job, I think I *may* be spending a bit of my income on new clothes. I’m a sucker for shopping. I’m turning into such a girl.
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN!?
I paired the dress with a basic grey long sleeved top from Glassons, some black pantyhose, a coloured scarf for some jzeush and my totally amazing over-the-knee slouch boots that I got from Ezibuy, because they’re bigger in the calves. I think it will also look quite dashing if paired with heels, but I wasn’t so keen on doing that just to go to a movie.
I wore my coat over top, but I think the photos without the coat look better. I possibly shouldn’t wear that specific coat over it, but maybe try a blazer or my biker jacket (which is currently in a box somewhere between Hastings and Wellington) that may keep my waste accentuated.

|With blue, black and white check scarf. I think this one looks better. Yay or nay?|
So what do you guys think? Fashion win? I think it is definitely suitable for the work environment and you can dress it up or down.
I also think I would probably look better with my hair down and a bit of make-up on. But I had only being doing domestic goddess duties today and I probably would have steamed any make-up off.
