OOTD Lace Up Black/White Contrast

Morning/Afternoon to Ye 😀

I decided to wear a complimentary contrast today, the ever classic Black/White combination with lace up detailing and even though the outfit is quite dressy I think the overall effect on me is quite light and fun.

The top can be bought HERE (Chicstar) for $29.95 in standard sizes and $36.95 in plus sizes, it comes in White, Black and Red. I bought the pants/trousers from eBay and the necklace from Forever21 a few years back.

OOTD Hippy Chic

Hello!

In between the dark and dreary thick cloud the sun has managed to let some rays through and I decided to wear a bright and invigorating outfit. The top is from Chicstar.com HERE on sale at $19.95 and is much more flattering than I was worried it would be and it paired nicely with some chiffon overlay trousers I have and a matching sequin beanie.

Denim and Patterns

‘Ello ‘Ello!

A few days ago I wore these great looking pair of jeans/denim pants that have Black/White stripe pockets and accents which make them quite striking but not overwhelming. I generally have a hard time finding and wearing jeans and unfortunately I found with these I should have ordered a size up because they were not as stretchy as I thought they might be. They still fit but I had to wear them quite low for comfort and will wear them at times when I’ve lost weight.

I wore them with a short sleeved Black jumper that has dogtooth patterned trim and pockets, over a long sleeved Black polo/turtle neck and I believe they matched the trousers nicely. To top the outfit off I wanted to give it even more texture(!) and so wore a faux fur hat to give the outfit a colder weather feel too. I hope you like the pics!

The first pic is also my latest fashion/customer photo entry for Chicstar Competition 3 – posting a pic of yourself or someone you know wearing an item of Chicstar clothing. It’s a great way of getting discounted clothing, it can be fun and it’s also nice to see the clothing on different people.

Black Coat Dress

This dress has the benefit of a formal yet dressy full length blazer style coat, over a cute/hot mini dress. Sexy whilst smart and with coverage. The dress buttons up at the front (matching buttons on the cuffs), as seen on the outer layer (on the bust there should be discreet hooks), that way the dress can be either stepped into or put on over the head. In terms of fabric – the sweetheart bust is a faux bust, it’s not a full top underneath. It’s just two front pieces sewn to the inner side of the ‘outer coat’ to make it look like an inner layer. This way it’s all really one layer and doesn’t get hot. The skirt is sewn under the the seam for the peplum section, that way there won’t be more than one visible seam. The lower section of the coat dress is draped. I would like shoulder pads as I think they would add to the formal basis of this design and keep the arms straight as well as wide enough for those concerned about their upper arms. They could also be easily be removed.

Floral Peplum Dress Rose and White Red Pink

This is a peplum dress with a twist. The ‘top’ section is made of two pieces, front and back with the back being partially visible at the front via the left shoulder. This gives a contrasting look. Also – the peplum hip hemline is assymetric so higher on the left side and lower on the right side – that allows the underneath side of the fabric to be shown, this continues the contrasting look. The skirt section is knee length and has a slit/split at the back for ease of walking. There are three decorative bows on the back over the zip (I felt a zip would be easier than buttons).

Designs – Vintage Inspired Dresses + Heart Cut-outs!

Hello everybody! 😀

Here are some more of my current fashion designs being voted on at Chicstar.com in Competition 1 – submitting original designs. If you like them or want to see what other people are saying click the pics and maybe vote 🙂 You can also view my past designs by clicking my name on any of the ChicStar pages.

Remember there are many awesome designs submitted to Chicstar, and we’d (designers) love your feedback and if you see anything you’d like to buy you can get a 30% discount with coupon code WINNER.

This is a 50’s style mini dress that appears like a dress and bolero but is really one piece. It has a high collar, 3/4 inch sleeves with turn-up style cuffs, a sweetheart bust shape and Black inserts in the skirt section. The Black fabric can be poplin, cotton or poly-stretch (only slight amount of stretch) fabric. The length should be mid-thigh. I’ve drawn it in Red, Blue and Black jacquard/brocade to show different options.

Same as above except I changed the fabric to leopard print, pinstripe and polka dot to show alternative options.

This is a cute and smart jacket in soft/comfy velvet with satin trim. The main body is velvet and the hip section and cuffs are ruched satin and cuffs have lacing. The jacket closed with hook and eye closures. The back of the hip section has a tie-up long bow.

Same as above but in cotton pinstripe and satin trim.

 Hope you like them!
