Here Kitty, Kitty



When the Miss Kitty range was released I made my initial order but I was silly enough to not add this this stunning swing to my cart. So when a little more spare cash was freed up I instantly went back and snapped up this AMAZING style and one more dress. 


The Miss Kitty Swing is the black swing of your dreams. Complete with 3/4 length sleeves, adjustable lace neckline and the deepest pockets I've ever owned. Created from a super stretchy fabric that's soft yet holds you in firmly. This fabric is really stretchy so I'm actually wearing the XL not my usual 2XL. 


This dress is absolutely perfect for super busty girls and you can lace the bust area as tight or loose as you may desire. Me, I always love epic boobie looks so I've gone for lots of skin showing. 

I've worn this twice already and it's so simple to style and comfortable. I'm now regretting not getting the black and white stripe version so I'll be back ordering that ASAP! 


Styling wise I've gone dark and witchy with a hint of silver. Wearing the classic Vixen silver hoops studs and my Restyl Wide Brim Hat. This look is dark, chic and absolutely effortless so it's bound to be one of my go to outfits over winter. The Miss Kitty Swing also looks amazing when paired with lace up boots and stockings so let your creativity fly and add pops of colour or prints to your pins. 



Now for one of the most fantastic dresses ever - the Vacation Dress! If I find a style I love I'll buy each and every version and wear it all week round. So after adding a black and maroon version of this stunning style to my wardrobe I snapped up the Olive. 


I've already reviewed this exact dress style on an earlier post this year and it still remains one of the best fitting pieces in my collection. I'm wearing the XL in this style and it's SPOT ON! Super fitted and flattering, making my curves really pop. The belt however is too small for my waist so be sure to look at the maximum measurement at the waist before sizing down. I'm usually a 2XL and the belt is definitely for a XL.


The olive shade is perfect for my hair colour but I was instantly not 100% sold on the colour. I'm not sure if it's too dark or the wrong end of the green spectrum for my taste so I've sold this onward and ordered Starlet swing in the new shade. 


It's such a stunning style and now available in a top version in a beautiful selection of colours so if you've not snapped up one yet you're missing out. 

A little side note - I received my latest order of the Vacation pants in a 2XL and they did not work for me sadly. If you have bigger hips and a tummy then I highly advice sizing up.

Opulence

It's time for another review of my favourite new items from City Chic. I'm forever window shopping the CC new arrivals section and these three amazing pieces jumped out at me instantly. 



I might be stuck at home but I can still feel amazing in the Opulent Dress in a stunning silky black fabric. This piece is a faux wrap, figure hugging, almost art deco style evening dress with the comfort of a silky robe. 


With a cross over fitted style skirt, asymmetrical hem line and deep plunging neckline this dress really does help your curves pop. Beneath these figure hugging pleats and wraps you will also find a super fitted underskirt - I've got huge hips verses my waist size so I needed to shimmy my way into the underskirt.


I'm wearing this piece in the 16/Small and it's a firm fit without any stretch so be sure to double check the size chart as there is no wiggle room. The billowing sleeves also make this style live up to the opulent name and I'm hopping that this might be released as a blouse in the future or even a swing style in jewel tones.



Next we have my ultimate work wear/daily look. The perfect mixture of classic styling, pinup prints and the most amazing neckline I've every worn on a jumper. 

The wild at heart jumper has a elbow length sleeve, bold black cuff and sweetheart neckline and a light brown tiger print. While I'd usually not go directly for this print the pairing of the bold black accents really make it shine and the sweetheart neckline does wonders for my chest. This is a size 16 and the fit is spot on. Lots of stretch and super comfortable, this jumper also hits just at your waist so it's perfectly paired with high waisted skirts.


I've paired this little jumper with the classic black pleated skirt with matching belt. I've loved the pleated styles for the last few seasons but I've never found one that works. Luckily City Chic knows curves and plus size figures and this piece is perfect on my hour glass shape. 


I tend to worry that having big hips I might make a pleat pop but this fabric skims over my curves and really flatters my shape. I'm wearing this in a 16/Small as well and the fabric has a little stretch at the waist and can be make tighter with the waist belt. 


I'm absolutely smitten with this combo and can't wait to mix and match this skirt with other button ups and cardigans in my collection. I can't get enough of these pieces and next on my lust list has to be the Harley Rip Corset Jean - lead, Tie Detail Pant - black, Criss Cross Jumper - black. Can I have it all please? I'm living daily in city chic!



Now lets chat shoes! I've become a huge fan of the Pink Label styles from Pleaser as I'm a size 11US and they have such an amazing selection available. If you don't know yet the Pink Label brand creates stunning styles from sizes a US9 to US17. 

For my last order I purchased an amazing set of super high heels but I also wanted something smaller and unique for nights out or daily wear. The Dream-432 heels are the simple chic with a little bit of fetish styling mixed in. 


Featuring a stretchy thick ankle strap with lock and key adornments these are so comfortable an unique. The 4 inch heel is easy to wear all day and I'm loving this unique creation.  


The silver lock and key feature really makes these stand out and I'm already planning to order the other two colour ways.

Art Nouveau

Yes it's a little late to the party but I can finally show you my most lusted after pieces from the Art Nouveau collection released by Erstwilder.

This stunning collection features some iconic and brilliant Art Nouveau style iconic pieces that you'll be in absolute lust with. I had to add a few to my collection as the colours and artwork were too stunning to miss out on.



I'm usually not one to go gaga over floral arrangements or flower brooches but there is something so amazing about the Natures Bloom piece. The chic lines, flowing into the most iconic deco styling makes my inner art nerd swoon.


 



The mixture of colours and resins pair perfectly and I can't wait to pair this with so many blouses and floral dresses over the next few months. 



I think it's clear by now if Erswilder releases any form of deer or stag brooch it has to be mine! Caught mid walk this stunning beast shines in front of the dewy glittery green forest.



I love the strength in this piece and post of this beautiful creature. Together each element makes for a really amazing brooch. 



Deep and dark squirming slithering snake earrings! Oh hell yes!! These stunning glittery serpents are the perfect  representation of a art nouvea style snake.




The mixture of green resin with pops of glitter and hand painted gold detailing make these a classic staple and perfect for any winter/autumn wardrobe.


With the Art Nouveau Collection release comes new colour ways and styles from the  New release Essential Earrings  selection. These new colours are perfectly paired with my red hair and so easy to style.



Affordable, the perfect size and that effortlessly comfortable and chic appeal of a drop earring.

Which did you snap up from this release?

Forever a Missfit

Last week BlackMilk Clothing released what might be my favourite range to date - The Missfits! A rebellious punk rock inspired range of pieces that just call my name. I was lucky enough to snap up my 3 must have pieces and this past weekend I got to style them to perfection.


Bat Belt 

Silver stars, sheer layers and a stunning sleeve - Stellar you are my absolute fave! A little while back I feel hard for a similar shape all black number from BlackMilk but this print has blown my mind.




I'm wearing the Stars Corrupted dress in a size Large and due to the stretch it's a perfect fit. With enough room at the bust and arms and the must boob flattering bust known to man kind. This piece fully lined so there are no issues with bras showing and covered in metallic stars.



As this piece is lined, you'll be able to wear it all year round and it looks amazing when paired with tights over the cooler months. Pair this with thick black tights, a body suit and your favourite leather jacket and it will be a stunning winter look.



For styling on this shoot I've paired this dress with my Joyeuse Earrings from Tragic Beautiful. I wanted a bold silver earring and these daggers are amazing and super affordable. I'm that smitten with these oversized daggers that I've already worn them three times this week. I need to jump back onto Tragic Beautiful and get more! 




If you've not noticed, I love a plaid print and the brighter the better in my opinion. So from the moment I saw this bright yellow wonder it immediately had to be on my body. If you've not had the pleasure of wearing a Toastie style from Blackmilk yet you will be needing them this winter! These pieces are fleece lined and absolutely amazing for those supercold days.



The classic skater shape with a super flattering sleeve and bust in the best and brightest of yellow plaid. This style hits me mid thigh and covers my toosh without any issues. I'm wearing the XL as I find these fabrics can morph with my bust at times.



The feel of this fabric is so soft and comfortable I swear you'll never want to take it off. I'll be pairing this with lots of leggings and stocking and over wearing this for the next few months.

Oh and did I mention it has pockets? I'm can see myself wearing this all winter paired with heaps of different chunky Demonia boots and platforms.



Styling wise for this look I've wanted to pair the skater with a harness and luckily I found the Hold Me Tight  body harness. I how effortlessly this piece pairs with the bright yellow plaid and how it complements my figure. Now this harness is actually too small for me which is a common issue when I buy one size fits all. Luckily after a brief online search, I found and purchased a vest extender from a motorbike clothing store and it's now more suited to my waist.


You might have also noticed little pop of silver on my ear. Last year I got an industrial piercing in that exact location but having long hair it just did not want to heal properly So this combination of stud a cuff helps me create the same look without any pain. I love the look of the chains, charms and can't get enough of this piece. It also comes in black, so I'll have to order that soon for when I'm wearing my hair up.



It's pretty darn freezing in Melbourne right now so I've been hunting for awesome prints to pair with my boots and skater dresses. While I do live in classic black leggings over the cooler months I've been in need of some more funky prints to wear with all black looks.

 

So when the red and black wet look tartan leggings popped up in this collection I instantly had them on my lust list. They pair perfectly with my PVC under dress and chunky Demonia boots. I think I'll be wearing these with my JOMO.2 black mini pini as well.


I wear these in a size XL.They are smooth, super comfortable and really pop with a skater dress or skirt. My legs are forever warm a toastie thanks to the awesome stockings and legging created by Blackmilk. 


Let's also take a brief moment to drool over my Demonia Torment boots from Shoeme.com.au. These babies are super high yet super comfortable. Over the last few years, my Demonia collection has grown substantially and I'm loving it.
