Fat Work Wear Style Round Up: February 2019

February was a bit of a quieter month for me, work was busy but i still managed to go to the Theater twice.

Also, i now work from home two days a week, where i just sit in a t shirt and lounge pants, not really photo worthy, so that means the number of outfits i'm sharing will decrease.

Lindy Bop Rose Print Audrey 

Ready for kinky boots! And we had a lovely dinner at Thaikun.

Dress is size 24 and is little tight across my chest giving slight pancake boobs.

Barbie x Unique Vintage My Barbie Collection Swing Skirt

How amazing is this skirt highlighting iconic Barbie silhouettes in vintage ensemble?

Unique vintage have added 5x to their sizing so it is now available to for more people. I am wearing a 4x in this and the fit is pretty spot on, but i would advise checking the individual size chart of items as they differ from piece to piece. Top is from Tatyana via Unique Vintage, i am wearing a 4x. 

Pin Up Couture Yellow House Harlequin 

Ready to see Harry Potter the cursed child. Representing my house in a yellow overload. The play is amazing and one of the best shows i've ever seen, no spoilers here though as i've promised to #keepthesecret 

This is actually a top and skirt combo, the skirt is a 3x and the top is a 4x. Hair flowers from eBay. 

Collectif Vintage Arabella Ettrick Check Swing Dress

My collectif bargain dress I'm liking the frills and velvet bow. Also another day another bun; the saviour of unwashed hair.

I took a punt on this as i wasn't sure if it would fit, Collectif sizing can be tricky, but i'm starting to add more pieces to my wardrobe. This is a size 22. 

Lady V London Rhaegal Dragon Hepburn Dress

Dress had a Chinese new year feel about it, only a week late.

As always in Hepburns i am wearing a 22/24.

Collectif Vintage Caterina Vintage Check Swing Dress

Today we went out to celebrate my mum finishing her cancer treatment now it's time to cross our fingers and hope its been successful. (I don't think the light does this beautiful print justice). 

I am wearing a size 22 and it is a little small in the bust, the buttons might pop, so i ended up returning this dress, the material didn't have as much stretch as needed. I love the print though. 

Lindy Bop Leopard Florals Dress 

Oh sun where did you go? It might be raining but I'm bringing the colour

This is actually one of the first Lindy Bop dresses i ever bought and it is still going strong. I am wearing a 22 (note the sizing has changed since i bought this dress and now wear a 24 or 26 depending on the material)  

Pin Up Couture Kissing booth Print Skirt 

Happy Valentine's day If you are also single know that love takes many forms not just romantic love. Celebrate the other relationships in your life today they are just as valid and meaningful.

The skirt is a 3x and the top is from Vixen and is a size 4x, not sure why i ordered a 3x as i'm normally a 3x in these tops but the fit is still fine. 

La Femme En Noir Oxblood Marilyn Swing Dress

My first La Femme En Noir piece (Vixen's glam and goth big sister) the black Marilyn in oxblood. Glamorous goth indeed.

The weight of this dress is really something, i've actually had it altered since taking this picture as the shoulders weren't sitting right, i can't stress the importance of having a good alternations person in your life, when we buy clothes they aren't tailored to us, they are just using a grading system, and it's ok if you don't fit perfectly into those measurements, a seamstress will be able to take the item and make it fit like it was made just for your body - note they can't work magic, so don't buy too small and hope they can tailor it, you need to buy big and get it altered down. I am wearing a 4x.

Pinup Couture Birdie Dress In Orange And Black Gingham 

Keeping it classic 50s housewife in this orange gingham print.

I love the birdie dresses, this is my 6th one. The cut just works really well on my shape. I am wearing a 4x. 

Pinup Couture Diana Dress In Mark Stripe

Lets turn on the juice and see what shakes loose. Such Beetle juice vibes in this dress but i love the pop of colour of cardigan adds. 

Dress is a 4x, i held off buying this for a while as the reviews on the sizing were mixed but it fits me great. Cardigan is from Voodoo Vixen

Hell Bunny Dorealee Tartan Check Swing Skirt 

It was warm enough today to not need a cardigan! What kind of February madness is that?

I actually had the dress in this print, but decided to sell it and get the skirt instead as i felt that was more versatile. Considering a few years ago i had very few skirts and really only wore dresses, i now have over 50 skirts and they are becoming more of a staple of my wardrobe for the way you can change them up.
