Fatshion Faceoff: Lane Bryant Skater Dress

These 'One-Dress-on-Five-Ladies' outfits are my absolute favourite kind of Fatshion Faceoff post. If you've happened to have a squiz over all of our blogs, you would have probably noticed that Dani, Hanna, Mouna, Mhairi and I all have very different styles, different seasons and very different body shapes. I genuinely love seeing how we all rock our one dress in our varying styles!

Dress: c/o Lane Bryant
Belt: ASOS Curve
Shoes: Betts
Necklace: Diva
Bag: Thrifted
Hat: Target

This gorgeous little Skater Sweater Dress was very kindly given to us from Lane Bryant. Now I'm not going to lie, remember what I said about different seasons? We are having a unusually hot Spring days here in Brisbane at the moment- I'm talking 36°C (or 97°F) and the mention of a 'sweater dress' made me quake in my air-conditioned lounge room. But this dress is so surprisingly light that I could comfortably wear it for most of this sunny day! Paired with some funky accessories and these ultra-fabulous retro school shoes, I was ready to head to breakfast with my ladies!

We have just watched The Great Gatsby, so I was inspired to buy this geometric gold-leaf-like belt. Its a kind of geometric style I rarely wear, but I'm loving the way the overall look came together with the art deco belt and hat and the 1960-70's dress and bag! Its like a clash of fashion generations! 

My favourite thing about this dress is the non-iron shape and material. No matter how fabulous an item of clothing is, if its high maintenance to look after, it often ends in the hardly worn pile. I have an ingrained hatred of ironing (TANGENT: I think it has a lot to do with the fact my high school uniform was a 'must-iron-before-every-wear' blouse. Seriously. How annoying. Couldn't I have spent more time learning and less irnoning?!) so find myself drawn to the more easy care fabrics. 

I am incredibly excited to see what all the FF babes come up with this week so as always please check us all out!

  1. That is a lovely dress! I like it with the red belt :)

  2. Oh man when I saw this outfit on your instagram, I was like omg that is such a cute outfit. Now that I'm seeing more pictures of the outfit i'm loving it more. I love the great gatsby so I love how you styled it with the hat and that necklace is such a great statement piece. I think look great and what a fun challenge for you all styling the same dress. I will definitely check out how the other ladies styled the dress, I'm so curious! hehe


  3. Oh! I love how you've styled it with the red! Guh, you look gorgeous!

  4. How fun that you ALL wore the same frock :D I love this skater dress - everywhere lately I see amazing skater dresses, I think the universe is telling me to make one! Your shoes are really cute too. Adorable as always!

  5. They way you style yourself is just magnificent. I really loved the color that black frock even I was looking to buy a camilla kaftan for myself but now, I will try to get one of similar pattern.
