 1. Jacket - Cotton on (Clearance $25 May) 2. Top - Asos Curve . 3. Skirt - Glassons (Circa '11) 4. Tights - Donatellas plus size tights (FREE shipping from London!) .  
5. Shoes - Wittner "Jagged" 6. Necklace - Vintage Cartel

This seasons is all about stripes and monochrome for me. I just cannot get enough of it! Stripes , mixed with more stripes is the perfect combination to me and on some occasions i may even get a little bit creative and throw in a hint of colour, such as these green court heels.

When i saw this blazer i just knew i had to have it, i nearly cried of happiness when i spied a 16 on the sale rack. At $25 it was an absolute steal! But it was a tad too small in the arms, so my tip is when purchasing a blazer is to make sure ,before you write an item off as being too small, that you check out the lining. I dont know why this occurs but i find that the lining in blazers can take inches of the sizing of the actual piece. Lining is usually made of a stiff fabric, yet the blazer fabric is nice and stretchy? Remove the lining and get that bargain!

On another note i recently came across an incredibly on trend new hosiery stockists from the UK Donatellas plus size tights (FREE shipping from London!) . I was immediately blown away by their selection of tights, which fulfils a huge gap in the plus size fashion market. I am wearing a size 20UK. (I would suggest upsizing in fashion tights as they are generally a tad less stretchy)
And did i mention free shipping to Australia?

If you want to purchase your own then use the code "ROSE15" for 15% off, minimum two items. Till 9/6

I am wearing the "Striped Mock Suspender"  and the second pair is "The Razor stripe". I also recieved the "Floral Lace" which i will style for you in another post very soon! 


The necklace is from a little Australian lady who sells plus size fashion on Ebay here  Vintage Cartel! I just love it so much i have it in 3 colours! As we all know how much i love need as many statement necklaces as i can gather in my life!
