OOTD: Pirate Theme




I love a rock inspired trend, skulls at the moment in particular I am loving, but as usual with the larger lady there's not much out there that isn't a) disgusting and loose fitted or b) over cutesy and a little edging towards crystal encrusted vomit.  Examples of the latter I found in my local New Look Inspire... Hearts, crystals and skulls in love? C'mon, I'm fat - not a Disney character!
With this in my mind, I knew that really the only way I could rock this trend to suit my own tastes (vs. the high street options for plus size) was to head to the accessories department.
I hit the net looking for a skull inspired black scarf, and found this little beau on eBay for a bargain of £1.29!  For the price I paid for it, the scarf is actually quite a good quality - sure, it's no silk scarf that I'd use in a seductive belly dance (!) but the cotton is strong and the print is bold.
For a lunch with the family today, I paired a pair of Evans skinny jeans, a plain black V neck top and long school black jumper from Tesco Clothing.  I tend to keep things simple when it comes to accessories, so left the scarf as my main piece and popped some simple crystal drop earrings my lugs.
I had a dig around in the wardrobe for some cute flats to go with it and found this beauties that were bought last Christmas in the sales from Evans.  Turn over top, suede finish, chunky heel.  Yeah, it was piratey - but hey, who cares?

Top tips of the week -
1.  Don't let the high street dictate whether you can work a trend into your wardrobe or not, you make your outfit!
2.  Have a dig around in the shoe box, you may find a gem you totally forgot about and fall in love with it again (like I did with my Jack Sparrow boots! YARR!)
