OOTD: Body-con me baby!

On Sunday afternoon Ben and I met up with his groomsmen in the city so we could order thier suits for the wedding. I've been wanting to show this killer BooHoo dress off and what better excuse than a day out in town!







Dress: BooHoo c/o
Jacket: City Chic
Necklace: Colette
Clutch: Kate Hill
Flatforms: Betts

Size wise, this is a UK 24 and pretty much fits like a glove. I normally wear an Aussie size 20-22, so I reckon the BooHoo plus-size fits slightly on the smaller size. On that note though, I'm quite round in the belly, so I often find body-con styles less roomy in that area. I'm keen to get my hands on some of the skater dress styles and see how they fit, some of them are super cute!

I love the sequin print with the bold blues- its so easy to style up. It was chilly that afternoon so I (stupidly) didn't take my jacket off so you could see the extremely flattering hourglass pattern with black panels. And flattering is not a word I use lightly at all, its a shit word, but yes, this dress shaves a good few sizes off of my waist with its optical illusion. 







I figure if I'm getting dressed up I may as well do it all the way so I threw on my favourite, trusty leather jacket and my amazing Betts flatforms. I can't get enough of these beauties recently. I used to wear flatforms all the time back in my early teens (Spice Girls crazy and all!) and I've just gotten back into them recently. I've whinged more than enough about how I don't like heels (even though I wear them because I love the look of them- isn't that ridiculous? Pain for beauty eh?!), so I'm loving the extra COMFY height!

What do you think of body-con?

  1. Good bit of cute mixed in with chic. The jacket and dress both look great, and I like those flatform sandals. I haven't been on "WaitUntilTheSunset" in some time. Having said that, I do like this newer layout. Very cool stuff, Olivia!
