OoTD No. 7 – Elegantly Wasted

A whole new fashion world has opened up since I discovered the wonders of bodycon. My savings account is in serious danger as so many straight size items are available to me now that I no longer care how obvious my belly looks in them. For example, I picked up this awesome, straight size, black jersey dress (for half price!) a couple of weeks ago. I’m sure I look a bit more bulgey than the designer of the dress intended, but I love it and I love how I look in it (read: it’s comfy as hell and it makes my arse look spectacular). It’s fun being unapologetically fat.

Its shortness and tightness make this a bit of a date outfit. To dress it down for a lazy weekend, I paired it with some high tops and my gold skull necklace – both purchased on my recent trip to London.

Since we (the Boyfriend and I) took these late on a Saturday night and since I was in an outfit I’d quite happily wear to a club, we decided to parody those ridiculous ‘trashed out model’ photo shoots you see all the time in Vice Magazine.

Dress: Agent Ninetynine from General Pants
Sneakers: Nike Air Royalty High Premium from Foot Locker
Bag: LA Vintage
Skull necklace: Lazy Oaf
Ring: Dinosaur Designs
