This month, I am styling the beautiful Lisa-Marie who has only been blogging this year. I may have gotten it completely wrong this month, but on Lisa-Marie’s blog she mentions that she wants to get out of her comfort zone and that she feels in a bit of a rut fashion wise wearing similar clothing. I noticed photos of pretty kimonos and other floral style tops on her website so I thought I would use this as inspiration but “girlie” the whole thing up a bit…
We have been discussing going more frequently as my confidence seems to disappear when I leave it for long periods before getting back in the water so I am going to need more swimwear that I will feel comfortable enough to wear in front of anyone.
Here in the UK the snow has finally decided to go away and stay away in my part of the country. I love snow when I don’t have to go out in it, but I also don’t like feeling cold when I am outside and my collection of coats is looking rather worn out at the moment. Now that Spring is on its way I am getting increasingly excited about the new trends and colours that will be appearing in the high street stores. One trend I have noticed across a few online shops has been the “Cat Jumper”. Now I love jumpers in this sort of weather and I happen to love cats too, so this is a perfect trend for me. I think my fiance might disagree and think that I’m some sort of crazy cat lady but who cares. It’s fashion, cute and warm and comfy!
Although i’m not a party animal, I have a bit of a tradition that every Christmas day I dress up in a new dress or outfit that I have bought for that purpose. In fact most of my “Christmas Day” dresses only get worn on special occasions no matter what shop they came from and I always insist on a new outfit/dress every year. Gone are the days as a child where I would spend as long as I possibly could in my pyjamas! Last year I wore an absolutely gorgeous purple frock dress with embellished cuffs which was from Primark and a complete bargain. This year I haven’t chosen my dress and although I came close to ordering one from ASOS, I found out days later they had sold out so I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
I thought it would be a nice little feature to do wishlists of my favourite plus size fashion stores online each month with a set trend in mind. At the moment I am absolutely loving animal print, especially leopard print. I have been experimenting with leopard print nails handpainted of course. Anyway, here is my wishlist for January 2012 from ASOS Curve… Let me know what you think!
