Fatshion Faceoff: Monochrome

I've tried really hard to pull my wardrobe out of a black and white slump. Before plus-size fashion truly came into its own over the last few years, it was too easy to just buy black and white (or mostly black with white detailing) clothes- mainly because that was all that was available. Well, black or giant over-sized floral muumuus, which frankly, don't look fabulous on anyone regardless of size! So, when wearing black and white now, I love making it look classic and chic instead of like a forced option.

Skirt: City Chic
Lace peplum: Dorothy Perkins
Flats: Rubi
Body Chain: Real Divas Are Large

Real Divas Are Large have the best accessories. Without a doubt. They had an awesome 50% off store wide sale this week, so I've just snapped up a few more rad body chains similar to this one. Whenever I'm looking to add a proper punch to an outfit, I always put on one of these necklaces, they are so uber eye catching!

This Dorthy Perkins peplum top is fab! I love the little lace detailing over the shoulders. How totally awesome are body con skirts?! And peplum. Siiiggghhh. I have to stop myself from over spamming your blog feeds with peplum and body-con outfits.

And as always, please check out all the FF babes in their monochrome this week!

  1. I can relate to always wearing black clothing, but I love how there are a lot of clothing options in different colors now. But yeah i love your outfit and omg that chain necklace is gorgeous! I've seen a lot of places selling similar items but whenever i tried them on they never fit me. I think I might have to check out where you got yours. The necklace totally gives your outfit an extra zing! hehe :)


  2. Oooo I've never seen real divas are large site before, do they deliver to Aus? Or do you get it via a shipping company?

  3. total classic gorgeous-ness. Really loving the monochrome, especially how it looks both classic and edgy at the same time. No stereotypical fat in black in sight!!

  6. Love that black and white skirt on you! It is incredibly chic with the peplum top :)

  8. Love this outfit! Very chic and classic, you achieved your goals here :) The body chain is really cool, too.
