So, it’s my turn again for this weeks installment of The Plus Size Work Wear Challenge. This weeks theme was ‘Pencil Skirt or Pussy Bow’ suggested to us by Mrs Bebe and her fabulous ramblings and I opted for…..
Pencil skirts, tube skirts, whatever it is you wanna call ’em are pretty hot right now and the plus size market are churning out quite a few awesome numbers at the moment! I’m only very recently just getting to grips with them though in all honesty. As open minded as I am towards fashion and rad fatty attitudes there are still elements of it that I am still yet to take on, one being the ‘Visible Belly Outline’ or otherwise known as the ‘VBO’. Pencil skirts are renowned for being very figure hugging and for this reason I’ve always shyed away from them.
A couple of months ago I spotted one in the Very So Fabulous range which I couldn’t stop oggling, but in the back of my head I kept thinking to myself ‘…forget it, you’ll never wear it.’ so I left it alone, well that was until it was reduced to £7 in their sale! For such a bargain price, I thought that was as good a time as any to take the plunge and give the old classic in this vibrant print a test drive, and so, here I am in all my pencil skirted glory (sans VBO!)…
I even got brave enough to have a little go at print clashing! Foxy bit of leopard print and tartan!
