Edgy Party Dress Style

February 7, 2013

I have been trying to put decide which edgy party dressI should wear to my birthday dinner this weekend, although I am leaning towards the sassy prom like dress more and more.  Luckily I have two events to attend so I get to wear both outfits!

I also wanted to show off these outfits because I am a UK size 14 and since I was talking about the lack of representation for mid sized women in fashion, I’m doing my bit to fill that gap.

Biker Dame Goes To The Prom


Dress, boohoo.com | Jacket, Nasty Gal | Shoes, Carvela | Tights, Fiore | Glitter Belt, H&M.

The dress is a little bit big on my boobs but I like how it hides my big tummy 🙂 It has a mesh petticoat under the top layer to give it that poofy effect. I feel so girly in this outfit!  I couldn’t find those exact tights on Amazon where I got them, but these are pretty amazing too: Fiore Apriel Patterned Backseam Tights.  I got that awesome metallic blue biker jacket in the Nasty Gal sale for like £14 (down from £55!) and I am so going to love wearing it in the spring.  Unfortunately it is out of stock, but the metallic biker jacket look is in and can be found elsewhere.  Here’s a darker blue one from Motel Rocks although its £65. Missguided have a rose gold metallic biker jacket for £37.99.

The Don’t Mess With This Dame.


Dress, Missguided | Feather Collar, Peacocks | Tights & Shoes as before.

It’s a pity you can’t see the green in the feathers in these pictures, but I realised after I took these photos that the camera was set too low.  I’m finding that leather look dresses are tight over the boobs even at a size 14, this dress is tight over my B cups, so if ya have boobage, you might want to keep that in mind.

If I do another “fashion shoot” I will remove the lamps on my room divider because I now see that they are distracting!  Actually, I went a bit nutso in the sales and picked up a few rad pieces, so perhaps I will do some more fashion posts in the future.  I just don’t want to be labeled a fashion blogger, because there is so much more to life than clothes.

Right, I’m off to celebrate with some of my closest friends, you can bet there’ll be pictures next week!

    Those outfits rock and you look gorgeous in them! I, for one, would love to see more outfit posts because you always have such great clothes to show off.

    Hope you have fun at your parties!

      Both outfits are fabulous but the second outfit is definitely the more fierce of the two. Either way you’ll rock it and be the best dame of them all! xo

        Thanks Nadya. Discovered last night that those shoes are not made for walking, impossible on cobble stones unless latched to a strong man’s arm and easy to fall out of!

      Awesome Kate, perhaps I’ll do one or two a month 🙂
