This past weekend was completely insane for The Curvy Alt-Girl. Thanks to Marigold Shadows and last week’s OOTW post, there are so many more of you and I wanted to use this post to welcome everyone that subscribed, followed and visited for the first time during this week. I am extremely grateful. Now let’s get to the clothes.
Sometimes I think that I wear Killstar too often but I can’t resist because they are constantly releasing new collections and they are one of the few brands that I like and can fit into since most of what they sell goes up to XL or XXL. Unfortunately a lot of designers and brands don’t think about the fact that the average size of women is around a US 12/14 and don’t even include those and when they do either the fit is poor or the selection sucks. Luckily Killstar has a few items that could fit up to a US 16 or 18. I know that there are many women that don’t fit in to those sizes so keep an eye out for my favorite plus size brands and stores that will be up very soon.
For this particular outfit I got the Gia Lace Tunic from Killstar. I am wearing an XXL, I probably could have gotten away with an XL but I always just get the biggest size they have just in case. I am always worried about garments that are completely made with lace because I am not always as careful as I should be and rip them but I was surprised at how sturdy this seems to be, its like it was made with people like me in mind. Also, the amount of stretch is great in this piece.
I paired the tunic with a nude jumpsuit that has a black mesh overlay on the botton half to help create the illusion that I am only wearing the lace top and pants so that there is nothing to distract from the lace. I am also wearing a pair of Steve Madden mules that I love. They are comfortable, convenient and they have bees. What more could you want?
Lipstick- NYX “Stone Fox” + a shimmer blue pigment on top
