This months #untamedstyle challenge was Fall Fashion or the Transition into Autumn. Not as theatrical as last months Style Icon Challenge, but still fun! What better way to transition into Fall then with a versatile and stylish jacket, some leggings, a few flashes of gold and ever so cute booties?

We were also suppose to highlight one of our favourite Fall trends for this year and since my budget is on the low side lately, I shopped my own closet.  Luckily, I came out with this teal blazer from Forever21+ that I got last year.  Teal just happens to be one of my favourite colours and it also happens to be one of the big trends to look out for this Autumnal season! {So is orange, though I don’t wear orange and I kind of find myself rewriting the line form The Devil Wears Prada to be “Orange.. for Fall, groundbreaking!” Though I would not naysay the colour for other girls, it’s just not for me}

I was going to pair this with a loose scarf, but I forgot to bring it and it’s still wickedly warm here.  It’s still a bit hard to fathom wearing layers, though I am really looking forward to it, as Autumn is my favourite season.  The crisp air, the slant of the sun rays, the crunchy orange and brown leaves littered down my street, not to mention Hallowe’en, black cats and everything pumpkin spice!

This outfit is pretty much 100% Forever21, all purchased from within the last year, but sadly no longer available, with exception to the belt {ASOS}, the boots {Las Vegas} and necklace {thrifted}.

Please go check out the other #untamedstyle ladies and their contributions to this months challenge!

Kobi Jae is always taking risks and having fun with fashion, so it’s always fun to see a new blog post up!

I adore this vintage/modern mashup!  The faux fur & pearls works so well with contrasting laser cut separates underneath!

I don’t often feature the big names in plus size fashion blogging, as I assume we’ve all seen these looks already.  But this look was so perfect and I guess, well, so perfectly me that I had to share it just in case you might have missed it.

There is not a single element I would change.  And I truly wish I had all these items in my closet so I could recreated it unabashedly right this second!

These are the last outfit photos I took before I dyed my hair blue!

This was for a date day I had during my anniversary week off.  We went for tea and to stock up on our favourite cream earl grey, as well as for ice cream and the items for a Parisien picnic.  I meant to get photos of it all, but we were having fun and it was blisteringly hot out so I completely forgot to document the rest of the day.  Though I did post a photo on instagram of the picnic, which ended up being inside our shady place as opposed to the garden, which was just far too warm.

When asked what my favourite colour is, I find I say teal or green as they are actual colours, and I do love them,  but I think my actual favourite colour is a shade and that would be grey!! I love how posh and sophisticated it looks and it definitely looks both on Aisha!

This little shift dress is gorgeously chic on her.  I love the simple sandal and big round glasses she chose to style it with, perfectly simple and effortlessly chic!  I’m also madly in love with her hair!!

She said it herself in her post “I’m such a sucker for yellow and black! I feel like a bee. Or Batman.” and I completely agree and adore this look.

It’s like mod meets riot girl and I love it!

I love the kitschy, yellow, heart shaped sunnies, the beret and the oh so shiny, kick yo’ ass boots to accessories this look! Not to mention I am also a sucker for button up blouses and mini skirts!

It can be daunting trying to find someone to look up to as a plus size girl wanting to explore fashion.  Luckily, the plus size fashion blogging community is flourishing!  There has never been so many stylish women to look up to and so accessible through social media!

One of the biggest steps towards self love and embracing yourself is to seek out and find beauty in people of varying sizes and styles.  The more you surround yourself with diversity, the more beauty you find! Being visible to other women is important as it can positively affect how they see themselves and give them the encouragement to go out and do their own thing!

As plus size bloggers, we are already a niche within the fashion community, but being alternative can place us in niches within our niche!

I’d like to create a positive and embracing hashtag to include all the beautiful and positive examples of alternative plus size fashion!  There are so many different styles within alternative culture and MANY women looking for role models and style gurus to help them find clothing that suits their unique style and unique bodies or to just see other women in positive ways that are like them in media.

I’d like to make the alternative girls more visible and accessible through the use of #alternativecurves on any social media.  A one stop hashtag to find other alternative girls where we can take inspiration from and solace knowing we are out there and we are fierce!

// my wedding was a circus //

the meanies // alternative circus wedding  // margotmeanie.com

If you follow me on instagram, then you know I was celebrating ten years together with my partner this past Thursday!!  It’s crazy to think a whole blissful decade has passed since we first got together!!  We have shared in so many adventures, triumphs, hardships and joys.

I also gave the heads up that our wedding anniversary was not even a week later. Four years ago today, on a very hot afternoon on Friday the 13th in East Vancouver, I married my favourite person on the planet.

We had a blast of a wedding, as we had a full out rock n roll, carnival wedding!  We were decked out in vintage carnival games, hand painted photo cutouts and a home built photo booth!

The day was a huge success due to weeks & weeks of DIY work by both ourselves, family and close friends, which we will eternally be grateful for! Everything from the massive props and signs, to the candy apple bouquet, to my dress & dessert table was the result of hard work from amazing people I’m honoured to know & love.

It was a wonderful day, surrounded by so many of our favourite people, partying it up and celebrating love.

I hope you enjoy these photos, most were taken by a photographer friend, Fatal Pixels.
