A Velvet Starlet

While it's the middle of Summer, I'm shooting, dreaming and planning all of my outfit for the two seasons and this year I'm absolutely crazy for Velvet. Luckily Micheline Pitt has created some of the most stunning winter styles in blue, black, hot pink and leopard print.

Being unsure of the fit on the Starlet, I originally thought that the 2XL would be the perfect fit for my curves. Once the Starlet in Blue arrived it fit zipped up with ease and I felt that the fit was a little loose. While this style is designed to have a tulip style skirt and flawless drape I'm actually not sure it 100% suited my body shape in the 2XL and the sleeves and bust seem to be a little big on me as the plus velvet is very stretchy. While this is the indented look, I felt that if the skirt was a little firmer and tighter I'd feel more comfortable and it turns out I was right.



The Starlet is a stunning cocktail dress with a built-in understructure made of high quality ponte, that is fused and tailored to accentuate your curves. The exterior is made of a plush stretch velvet that feels so smooth and soft you'll not be able to stop touching it!


Now lets chat about fit! With the 2XL the original drape design is very visible and creates some amazing curves. The drape also hides any tummy flaws and really flatters my mid section. The Blue Starlet is directly from the Vixen webstore and the price is listed in Australian dollars. Just look at the texture and how the light hits the fabric. It's pure magic!

For the Leopard print version this drape is less apparent as but it hugs your curves and really makes them pop. The print also hides any tummy flaws and I'm smitten with the 3/4 sleeve. I'm very much so a 2XL these days but the fit on the XL is perfection and I'm in need of the black velvet version.




The only issue I have with the XL is the fact that they belt will not fit me currently but this is easily fixed with my Troublemaker Wiggle belt or any other style in black. Hopefully, the fit will be very similar in the swing styles as I'm dying to get both the black and green in the Starlet Swings.

Micheline's version of Leopard print is pure magic on everyone, and I can't get enough of it. Next on my lust list - The Leopard Sweetheart Dress! 

Wrap Top in Black Velvet - $74.95

Next a style I've been lusting after ever since the sneaky previews popped up - the Wrap! A boobie loving, stunning wrap top with an extra long tie. A crop style that can be worn with high waisted wiggles, pants and swing style skirt and can even double ups as a wrap cardigan.

I've paired my wrap with my favourite Collectif Piano swing and I love how the two work together. As my husband stated this is a very 'Teer' outfit and I complete agree as I could live in this day and night. I feel so in love with this wrap top that I purchased the blue version and a circle skirt from the current Vixen range straight after this shoot.

Size wise I stuck with the 2XL as I'm very busty and the coverage can be changed to suit both your own comfort levels and modesty. I'm wearing this rather tight for these images but I can't wait to pair this with a cage bra and show a little more skin. If I get a chance, I'll be sure to shoot the blue version with amazing black lingerie beneath. For the skirt I'm wearing a UK16, and it's a tight fit but I can wear both 16 and 18's in their range.

Both the Leopard Starlet and the Black Wrap top are from Natasha Marie Clothing who is my go to reseller of all things Micheline Pitt related! They have the biggest and best range in Australia!
