'Tis the season to be sultry with Live Unlimited

One of the things I struggle with in Winter is dressing for the weather when I'm going to be in and out of bars (Literally the whole of my Winter). Jumpers are too sweaty and shrugs are too...well..they're shrugs aren't they. That's why I was over the moon when Live Unlimited sent me this gorgeous plus size lace jacket.
 
Lace Jacket* - Live Unlimited
Jumpsuit - Yours Clothing (Similar)
Shoes - New Look (Similar)
Choker - ASOS
All of Live Unlimited's AW16 collection is dark, sultry and extremely elegant but this jacket is very much a standout piece for me. The quality is amazing, the lace is so delicate, running down into a scalloped edge at the bottom which would look incredible over a contrasting colour. The length is spot on and the herringbone detailing gives it a bit of an edge. This jacket is the perfect mix between delicate and rock-y and I'm really looking forward to finding other ways to style it.


It's rare that I wear an item which I like equally fastened up as I do open but the top fastening on this jacket is really sweet and gives you a little bit more coverage should you need or want it. I've styled it here with a simple black jumpsuit and a wide choker (I've gotten into chokers now that they're going back out of fashion, I'm so bloody contrary)


I'm wearing a 16 here and I would say that it is absolutely perfect to size - I wouldn't be able to wear anything too chunky under it but then I'm not sure that I'd ever want to. For me, simplicity is key with a statement item like this. If you're looking for a timeless, piece for the party season, I wholeheartedly recommend perusing the Live Unlimited website - There are sequins and beads a-plenty. 


As you can see, I've been able to take advantage of some good lighting so I have a few posts for you this week, including a festive frock which gave me the opportunity to legitimately drink whilst I posed - WINNER.

I'm a Ssssnake - The Elvi Shirt Dress

Look, I'm wearing clothes again. Well done me.
Now you all know I like Elvi, their clothes are consistently stylish, well made and fit me like a dream - This shirt dress is no different.

Printed Dip Hem Shirt Dress* - Elvi
Leggings - H&M
Over the knee boots - Primark
Gold Tassel Earrings - H&M (Similar)
Bag - Vintage
Shirt Dresses are just so flipping easy to wear, I've worn this one with and without the belt, over jeans and leggings. I love how this sheer one it looks with gold accessories and my much loved OTK boots. The side splits are extremely high so I don't think that I would wear it with tights but I know plenty of women who would brave it and look incredible. I'm currently considering some leather look leggings (WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME) that this dress would look BANGING with.

In terms of sizing, I could have definitely gone for true to size here but usually size up with anything shirt related due to my broad back, so this is an 18 and it is lovely and loose, hence me cinching it up over the belt. The Dip hem means that it is on the knee for me at the front the calf length at the back when not cinched - Ideal for you taller ladies.

I've got another lovely Elvi dress with a very 70s vibe to show you soon - Watch this space!

A different kind of Black Friday with Brastop...

This Black Friday I've managed to spend a lot of money. Like a REAL lot of money, every single penny of which has been on other people... With this in mind, I'm very lucky that the lovely team from Brastop sent me this beautiful Pour Moi fuller bust lingerie set in order to enjoy a prettier and less expensive kind of Black Friday.

Pour Moi Longline Bra - Brastop
Pour Moi Brief - Brastop 
The longline shape and, sating fabric and mesh detailing of this plunge bra gives it a beautiful retro look - This is not a cleavage-inducing bra, it's a slink-around-the-house -feeling-very-glamorous bra. The briefs only add to this feel with a satin panel to the front and mesh throughout. I love how this set feels, the cut of both the bra and briefs is ideal for someone who carries their chub around the middle.

The fit is perfectly true to size - I'm wearing a 36F and 18 here - Although the mesh gathers slightly on the smaller cup, it is minimal and the edging ensures that overall it sits flush to my chest. I think that fact that you're seeing me wearing it in a full length picture where I'm not hiding behind anything demonstrates just how fab I feel in this set.

Brastop have a plethora of Black Friday deals this weekend - Including 25% off the set above, so if you're a D-K cup head on over for a good old fashioned bargain.
