// friday i’m in love #32 //

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top looks I have seen online each week as well as any other internet gems. 

From now on I will also be including some links to Friday I’m in Love feature!  If anything piques my interest, I’ll be sharing it here with you.

{I do share a lot more on my facebook page throughout the week, if you’re interested in keeping up to date.}

Tayler Smith // friday i'm in love #32 // margotmeanie.com

Tayler is a photographer and I’m super jealous as she was photographing much of NYFW.  I adore her outfit for day two.  The sheer, almost flowing white blouse reined in by a perfectly simple harness is freaking on point, but even better, she double harnesses up and you can see a pentagram harness underneath the sheer blouse!! It’s so edgy and chic, I’m completely slayed by it!

Follow Tayler on  tumblr instagram, twitter or her new blog dedicated solely to New York Fashion Week. taylerdoesnyfw.tumblr.com

Audrey from Big or not to big // friday i'm in love #32 // margotmeanie.com

I adore Audrey, she just looks so great in every outfit she posts!  Her style ranges, which I love, and each outfit is always perfectly styled no matter what she’s showing.

This look from the French Curves blog hop totally caught my eye.  Something about leather and tutu’s set my heart to fluttering!  I am enamored with this tutu’s colour, especially in contrast to her perfect gingery tresses!  And how fun is the graphic tee with this whole look!  Love, Love, Love!!

You can follow Audrey on her blog, lookbook or instagram!

 

 Love these links:

-Yay, discoveries at Stonehenge!

-Denise Bidot was aaalll over New York Fashion week and she looked so fierce!! In fact there was a range of body types displayed this year, which was very newsworthy!  Hopefully this is becoming the norm!  I personally loved the Chromat &  Zana Bayne runway shows the most!

Some may find this a bit weird or morbid, but that is exactly what Caitlin Doughty is all about.  Caitlin is a mortician and she’s trying to make people a bit more at peace with our mortality and uses knowledge, humour and cheesy photoshopping to help to subject go down.  I kinda binge watched all of her videos over the last two days and now I kinda want her to be my friend!!

Beware, the pet death is a sad one, but the rest are genuinely wonderful!  {the pet death video is beautiful as well, just have some kleenex at hand}

Caitlin is releasing a book that will be on my x-mas wishlist this year called “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory” and is currently available for pre-order through amazon.

Love This Sunday // alternative plus size fashion

Love This Sunday // margot meanie

I often wear a lot of black, so much so, that I even made it my blogs tagline.  But that doesn’t stop me from still being playful with colour!  I do love surprising people with wearing tons of cute colours paired with sweet accessories and bright make-up. {though I did still manage to pack a lot of black in this outfit anyway!}

This week I’m wearing a cheeky jelly bean swimsuit gifted from Love This Sunday.  They are a kitschy fun swimwear company that just recently expanded their sizing up to a 3x!!!

To celebrate the new size range, they invited me to pick one of their suits and style it in my own way that could be worn year round.

Now, they have some freakin’ CUTE prints which made it hard to pick; french fries, hamburgers, breakfast food bikini’s..to die for!! But when my eye rested on the Jelly Bean one piece I was purely smitten!

Love This Sunday // margot meanie

I was super impressed with the colour and quality of material when I first opened my parcel, but then a little concerned that perhaps the print on the suit would look broken or washed out once it was on me.  Happily, it didn’t it held up beautifully and vibrantly!  I ordered the 3x and it fits quite nice, but I am a very busty gal and it sits a wee low on the décolletage, so I plan to wear a bright coloured bandeau when I go swimming in it.  I really love the low scoop on the back as well!

I’m very happy with this swimsuit and super stoked to jump in my friends pool with it on!

Things to keep in mind:

I ordered the 3x, I am an 18/20 US and it just fits me.  It’s not going to fit on much larger bodies sadly though if you are smaller in the bust it should work if you’re a size larger. Hopefully these will be a wild success and maybe  they’ll include more sizes again!! It does not have any support for the girls, so if you are larger busted, you may need to wear a bra or add a bandeau for modesty or comfort.

But I must say it again, the print is the CUTEST and the quality is aces!!  I love this suit and I Love This Sunday! <3

what I wore:

//sheer black blouse – Ross {in Las Vegas}

//bandage skirt – Torrid {several years old, but it still holds up!}

//yellow over the knee socks – forever21+{they were opaque tights that I cut into socks! }

//pink velvetine lipstick - Lime Crime

//yellow & lime green eye shadows and Gir necklace – Hot Topic

//hot pink & silver T-strap flats – Buffalo Exchange {Portland}

//meringue earrings – Insanely Sweet Jewelry on etsy {these wear my wedding earrings!!}

//Jelly Bean one piece – c/o Love This Sunday

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!

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.

what i wore:

//pyramid studded top – forever21+ last fall {similar} {similar}

//rev velvet midi skirt – The Curvy Elle vintage shop, {similar} {similar}

//sandals – ModCloth
