But from the moment the Bishop Sleeve top was released I knew that I needed both of these amazingly tailored pieces in my collection and create one EPIC art deco style jumpsuit!
Bishop Sleeve Blouse in Oxblood - $129.95
Drawing inspiration from the 1930s, this amazing blouse has an elegant balloon sleeve, plunging/boobtastic neckline, a fully lined bodice and a back zip. Each feature combines to create a form fitting, super flattering, curve embracing piece of perfection!
When this top was first previewed I knew I had to own it in every colour as it's perfect for a busty girl who loves to show off her assets and the billowing bishop pairs perfectly the lower neckline. I've always had a soft spot for this style sleeve as it's roomy, flattering on all shapes and sizes and effortlessly chic.
For this style I went with my standard 2XL and while the fabric is super stretchy - I could size down to the XL with ease, I find the bust seam sits perfectly in this size. If you are looking for a super tight and flattening fit then be sure to size down but I'm actually loving the comfort element of this in the 2XL. The fabric used in both the blouse and the pants is so light and soft you'll never want to wear any other items of clothing again - that almost as comfortable as your PJ's feel while looking very Hollywood glam!
Now let's chat Palazzo Pants! For years I was scared of this kind of pant until I slipped into my first pair and never looked back. If you have curves and usually stick to a cigarette style or a skinny jean I highly suggest you try the amazing flowing wide leg styling of a Palazzo pant.
They flatter your curves, skim over your hips and flow beautifully. I'm wearing the 2XL, and the waist is a perfect fit with a little room to move and lots of space to tuck the bishop sleeve blouse and other tops. They have a massive sweep and are made of a light weight yet durable flowing crepe fabric that is fully lined so you will be comfortable all day long in these.
Oh and did I mention these babies also have pockets? They have super deep lined pockets that don't distract or take away from the design of the pant. So many pockets tend to pop out on my hip or look a little odd as I'm super hippy but these keen that flowing shape.
I absolutely love the look of these two pieces teamed together, and how they create a flattering and stunning jumpsuit feel. I think I'll need to snap up the black version of both pieces and create the same look once they are back in stock. But for the Black Bishop Sleeve blouse I'll opt for the XL as the seam does not get seen as much in that colourway.
These two pieces were snapped up at Natasha Marie Clothing, and they are the biggest and best online stockists for Vixen and La Femme En Noir designs. If you are on facebook but sure to like their page and join the Lounge to get information regarding restocks, upcoming items for preorder, etc.
Lets not forget the stunning Miz Smitten Kitten Halo crown! I've actually got more shoot plans for this epic piece but had to pair it with this jumpsuited look. Von always knows exactly what I want without me even showing her!
