A while back I showed my favorite items from Carmakoma , I adore their online store so much and really wanted to know how they would look on my shape.
So I browsed the stunning new stock and picked two items to slip into a less than a week later a package was at my door - now how is that for shipping!
Carmakoma designs and produces clothes for curvy women in sizes 14-24. Quoted from their facebook page 'Our style is contrasted – a mix of rock’chick coolness and feminine sweetness. The clothes are designed and produced with heartfelt attention – making the final product of high quality and a perfect mix of styles for both the ”cutting edge” fashionista and the woman with the sophisticated weekday-look' I have to say this description is pretty much spot on.
So out I went with the fantastic Michael Alesich (who is brilliant) into the heart of the city and road tested the fantastic designs.
I got Agyness Skirt - EUR 75.21, the Moss Dress - EUR 68.36 and the Rollercoaster Belt - EUR 27.26.
First I slipped on the Moss Dress made from a soft silky jersey size XS I'm wearing this with black tights and the Rollercoaster Belt I also put my favorite bow belt on and it worked very well too. Click on the images for a larger view.
Be sure to check out the multiple was to wear the Rollercoaster Belt on the site as well.
Then for some real rock chic action the Agyness Skirt!
How i love every little detail on this skirt. From the studs, the leather look fabric to the folds and shapes in the fabric. I've never thought about wearing a mini skirt before but I'm actually comfortable in this. Its lined also which is great and I'm wearing a S in this as my hip measurement was a tad to big for the XS. Its a little roomy around the waist but I will get a tailor to take it in during the week.
So I'm very happy with my Carmakoma goodies and I can't wait to slip into some more designs.
