Plus size outfit day

While i was catching up on blogs last month i spotted this post on Miss Temple's blog. It was for plus size outfit day if you want to read about the ideas and lovely ladies behind it check out this post from Miss Bartoz or this one from Rubenesque. There is also details on there if you are interested in joining in.
The idea is for bloggers from all over the world to show their take on the monthly theme and share fashions.

So the theme for this month was burgundy, i knew straight away which dress i would choose. I had bought this dress from New Look on a recent shopping trip. The skater dress is very popular at the minute lots of places seem to be selling them, this is only the second skater dress in my wardrobe but I'm sure it won't be my last. The dress is still available here and was £22.99 which is pretty cheap compared to some of the other skater dresses I've seen.

I bought the dress in a size 24 the 22 fit me perfectly but i felt it was a little short so i sized up for some extra length. As you can see the dress is still pretty short on my 5 4" frame. The colour of the dress is a great deep wine red as close to burgundy as i have in my wardrobe, and its made from a fairly thick jersey so it will last during the winter too.

I wore the dress with black pumps and a leopard print headscarf from primark and my squirrel necklace from asos. The belt I'm wearing came with the dress and its fits with extra room, its not one of those plus size dresses that come with a tiny little belt that doesn't even fasten!

That was my take on burgundy take a look at what the others have done


Do you have many burgundy items in your wardrobe?

  1. The dress looks amazing on you! I really like your hairdo with the leo-scarf (also a leo-fan, haha).
    Funny, I ordered at new look a few days ago and thought about buying the same dress, but then chose another one.

  16. I love this dress. I almost brought it yesterday. I'm quite glad I didn't now as I thought it was short on the hanger and compared to another dress I already have thst I held it up against. It seems completely different to the other New Look skater dresses I have. I'm 5ft 8 so I reckon this one wouldn't even touch me! You look stunning in it :)
