Fatshion Faceoff: Bodycon dress
Hey my lovely readers,
Ok, so, I have a confession. When I started this whole fashion blogging-thing I wore A LOT of bodycon skirts and dresses, and I guess it kind of became ‘my thing’ without me even realising it. Last week I was catching up on posts and saw that the lovely Cyn had linked me in this post and said “I can totally picture someone like Hanna wearing it at work just like this, tho; as bodycon is her signature look.” That made me realise that I haven’t actually worn bodycons in AGES, unless I had a flowy shirt on top, like in last Sunday’s Double Vision post. It has happened without me even thinking about it at all, but I’m not really that confident wearing bodycons anymore. It’s not because of my vbo, it’s more about how my style has developed, and I just don’t feel those tight things are really my style anymore.. except sometimes, like in this post. I guess I just wore them too much and I was kind of a ‘rebel’ when I started this whole body acceptance-thing, and now I just want to wear more flowy things, haha.
I actually love how this outfit looks on me. The shirt (didn’t I tell you that I will probably wear it all the time now.. haha) is giving the look a more Autumnal feel, and this Forever 21+ dress is just gorgeous. I still can’t believe that I got it on sale for £9.99!
Dress: 2X, Forever 21+ (similar, similar) | Shirt: 24, Matalan | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Shoes: Evans (similar) | Sunnies: Oliver Bonas | Hairbow: New Look (similar) | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Crimson (available in Boots)
This will definitely be one of my outfits when going out during Christmas season :). Now let’s go see how the other FF ladies styled their bodycons.. I’m sure they’re all stunning!
