{ outfit } afternoon tea

monochrome | plus size blogger margot meanie

This weekend I finally took advantage of a gift certificate given to me by my sister for x-mas to go for afternoon tea.

Mister Meanie and I thoroughly enjoyed all the tasty decedent nibbles, he sipped on black tea, while I opted to upgrade to some matcha, as I really love it and I don’t get to indulge in it often enough.  { photos of our afternoon tea are below }

It was also the perfect outing to rock my brand new shawl { cape, wrap? } which I had just scored at the thrift shop the day before.

Though I don’t always find clothing while I thrift, I always have luck with accessories and shoes.  I whole heartrendingly recommend giving thrifting a try, especially for trendy pieces you don’t want to break the bank over.  I’ve found clutches, platform shoes, metallic belts and an array of vintage hats in my journeys.  My next item I’m on the hunt for is a fringed leather { or leather look }  bag, I’m really feeling fringe and I predict it is going to explode before the summer.

I also decided to rock a monochrome oxblood combo, with my f21+ cutout crop top & my velvet midi which I got from online plus size thrifting guru The Curvy Elle.

Online is another really great way to thrift while being plus size.  There are oodles of shops online through etsy or their own independent websites, where they curate excellent thrifted and vintage plus pieces. { the curvy elle & ursa major plus are two of my favourites!}

It’s a great way to save a buck, support a small business and be environmental all at the same time!

Do you ever thrift or do you have tips or favourite online thrift shops you’d like to recommend?? please let me know in the comments!

For now, I will leave you will some photos of our afternoon tea, make sure you’ve eaten first, or else you’ll be hungry!

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week.  Though I will feature many plus size looks, I will also feature looks including straight sizes and gentlemen if the feeling strikes!

Look at how gorgeous this sheer maxi is!! Just LOOK!!

It’s not a surprise that I am a HUGE fan of black chiffon and I absolutely LOVE maxi’s as well!  What a perfect summer look!

I adore the long line cardi too, and who doesn’t love a classic, over sized, designer bag to make the perfect “yes, I’m effortlessly chic” statement?

Just gorgeous!

Oh my goodness, how fabulous does Dionne look in this absolutely gorgeous dress from the ASOS Salon line???  I have been wanting to write a piece on being a modern flapper girl with the Salon dresses as the key items!

She just looks beyond glamorous!  She got the look spot on and I’m super jealous that I don’t have this entire ensemble in my closet right meow!!

The jewelry she chose is perfect and the shoes are a lovely contrast to the dark dress, but still have just as much glitz and that purse is so much fun!

Just look how pretty & posh Ashley is looking in these photos.  I adore the sheer polka dot blouse, the breezy, pleated midi skirt and the perfect pops of red in her shoes, handbag, skinny belt & lippie!

She looks like a perfect lady, completely pulled together and totally on trend with the sheer elements!
