The Plus-Size Workwear Challenge: Pencil Skirt or Pussy Bow

So, I am a little behind in my posting for this challenge; I have been taking the pictures as each week has gone along but haven’t been able to blog them. Now, I don’t want to bog this post down with too much negativity so will simply say that my on going health issue have been kicking my backside. So not laziness or being flaky in my commitments,simply the electric impulses in my brain meaning not enough focus for posting!

I have to say this week was my most anticipated…I am all about the ladylike chic at the moment, given my desire to look look like a chic 1930s/1940s librarian at all times. I did have the instinct to do both pencil skirt and upset bow but then figured that wasn’t really me…and for me this challenge is about getting me to mix it up and take that forward into my daily wardrobe after this ace challenge is done.

Anyway, you want to see the clothes, right?

I really like this outfit combo and have worn it again since. The shirt I find both lovely and annoying – at present I do not own an iron (baaaad fashionista!) and therefore is usually fairly creased and needs to be worn under stuff, not to mention buttons around the stomach area gape a little; but fits everywhere else like a drea plus bunny print wins me over! This is the first time I’ve rocked a bit of VBO and I feel really rather proud of myself! So yes, this outfit definitely full of win.

Pop back tomorrow for me finally posting last week’s efforts, and will blog this week’s the day after!

Check out the other lovely ladies…I’m feeling a tad lazy and am not going to hyper-link the blogs, however if you copy and paste their urls, they work just fine! (I’ll amend and link properly when have more time!!
