OOTD – party in blue

*gasp* Did I seriously forget to show you guys this one? Shame on me!

Alright, now that’s out of the way, let’s focus on this dress! This gorgeous number is from MS Mode and is supposed to be a knee length dress on… well… non-giants, but since I am vertically blessed it hits well above the knee for me. Which is totally fine, because that happens to be the perfect length to go out dancing all night! Just because my legs are chubby, doesn’t mean I have to cover them up right?

I’m always a sucker for a knot-detail in the waist, as I think it creates interesting lines for the eyes to follow as opposed to just being one plain block of fabric. It’s also supposed to “reveal a belly”, but I think with a fabric that is as thin and clingy as this one is there really is no escaping the VBO (visible belly outline). That’s cool though, because it’s designed with a bit of extra fabric covering that area, so you won’t have to worry about your jiggly bits being too much on display.

I fell in love with this gorgeous blue colour, but it also comes in a very classy black! It’s on sale at the moment and still available in a couple of sizes, so go have a look. I find it runs true to size, I’m wearing the biggest size in this one. I could have sized down for a more body con fit, but then it would have also fit shorter and a girl has her limits.

OOTD – tropical wrapdress

I used to stay away from light colours because I was told they make you look fat. I know, silly right? Thank god I no longer believe in that little story, cause otherwise I would have completely missed out on this gorgeous white wrap dress with tropical leaf print from Belloya.

Belloya is known for its dresses and they have several wrap dresses in their collection. I think a wrap dress is such an iconic, classic piece that every woman should own. They are so versatile and very sizefriendly, because you can adjust them to your size and shape for a perfect fit. This one gets special bonuspoints because it’s made from a stretchy, natural material, which makes this sweaty girl very happy, hah!

I especially appreciate those little details that show a lot of thought went into a design. The wrap is extra wide and provides plenty of coverage and the “belt” is very long so you can comfortable wrap it around your body. It’s those little details that count! It also comes in a dark blue, but I just couldn’t resist it in white.┬áBring on those hot summer days, I’m ready!
