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!

I have been terrible at getting any outfits posts up lately.  I blame it on the incredible heat & having far too much summer fun with friends!

Today I just did a simple outfit mixing blush tones with black, which I adore!  Sorry I don\t have more to write, but I hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as I am!! {you can follow my summer shenanigans a wee bit through my instagram!}

I promise to get better at posting an outfit per week!!

Oh how I adore chiffon.  Black chiffon is a dream fabric for me, I could easily own a million pieces in black chiffon and treasure every piece!

I was just acquainted with Raissa this week and now I am an avid fan, following her everywhere I can around the internets!  She seems to be a kindred spirit, which is always deliciously exciting to encounter!

I adore how Raissa styled this frock!  The shiny Agent Provocateur bra under this button up dress is divinely chic!!

I urge you to follow Raissa  on her blog instagram , tumblr, pinterest & lookbook!

Stephanie is very well known and for good cause, her style and tastes are impeccable!!

I adore this look for many reasons:

One, being that I have been drooling after this ASOS dress for a few months now!

Two, I really want a sleeveless blazer.

Three, look a the texture of this blazer!!!

Four, I adore midnight blue. {If I could only pick three colours to wear for the rest of my life, they would be black, midnight blue & blush}

Five, I just love how she styled this outfit!  It’s so pulled together, so incredibly chic with its monochrome look and just the right punch of gold and white as accents!

I am so smitten with how wonderfully perfect this vintage outfit is executed by the ever so lovely Katie Louise Ford.

I did chose one of the racier photos from her set, but I just needed to illustrate that she had the details down all the way to the under garments!!

This shade looks so lovely on her.  I love the cloche and stole {I very much want a vintage stole, my Grandmother has some beautiful vintage mink stoles, but I don’t have the courage to ask her for them}.  The setting, in the orchard, its absolutely lovely as well!

Bravo!

I hope you enjoy the amazing style of these three lovely ladies and hope you give them each a follow as they are all very much deserving!

This week marked a huge collaborative event in the French Curves group {man I wish I could speak french fluently, I am very much a novice} in which they were instructed to recreate a look.

Assa chose to replicate a look by Miroslava Duma, who is a former editor of Harper’s Bazaar Russia.  These two pieces aren’t actually a matching suit, but I’m so impressed with how close they look!  Click here to see the original, I think she did a perfect tribute!

Rosa’s timing could not have been better, as I was searching for a third bad ass girl who has suited up,  there she was, at the top of my instagram feed in a super cute skirt suit!

Perfectly reminiscent of “Clueless”,  she’s rocking this suit in style and I adore it!  Can you believe she re-purposed this from an old suit from the 80’s her mom gave her?!! Brilliant!

Hello chiffon!! Easily my favourite fabric of the summer, especially when used with a maxi!! I adore this monochrome ombre chiffon maxi.

She looks so perfectly edgy with her flaming red hair, bowler hat & nose piercing! I swoon!

Those white frames are pretty kickin’ as well!

I have just found Nadia on instagram and I am smitten beyond belief with her cute stylishness!

I adore her all black outfit with a helleva statement necklace in silver.  The added leopard slippers are just the right bad ass touch along with a black leather jacket, which I’m pretty sure might be the definition of “edgy”, go look it up, I’ll wait ;)

This gal is SUCH a cutie patootie!!  Her blog is in Finnish, so when it translates I’m always a bit baffled, but she seems like a ton of fun!

This look is adorable edgy!  The stripy 3/4 length tee is awesome, paired with this full midi skirt and bright yellow tights!  I love her hair and BIG round shades!

Side note, her pose in this shot somewhat reminds me of the tightrope portrait in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion!

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”  -Coco Chanel

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute.  It is the perfect harmony.”  -Coco Chanel

Today’s outfit is 100% inspired by the first lady of style, Coco Chanel.  Though I sadly, do not own a single Chanel piece I have often taken my cues from Chanel.

I grew up watching Fashion Television, which had a huge impact on me.  I love the art that comes with design and styling.  I think growing up and constantly looking at high fashion has trickled down into how I now dress, even on my low budget fashion level.

This look is simple, but I adhered to Coco’s famous advice and took off an item before shooting  today’s look.   I also find much comfort in black & white outfits.  I think they can speak so loudly, even with the absence of a bright colour.

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!

Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

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!

Audrey is a lovely French blogger.  Though I can’t understand the text on her blog, I still love looking at her pictures!  She has a tremendous sense of style that I just adore!  She’s usually very feminine in great dresses and perfect accessories, but there’s something about this catsuit that is just so très chic!  The fabric looks soft, comfortable and luxurious and the lace detail on the cap sleeve and décolletage is so lovely!

I absolutely LOVE the obi wrap leather belt and the pops of coral in the necklace and shoes are just perfect.

Amanda from In The Thick Of It  // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com Amanda from In The Thick Of It  // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

I know it seems like it just wouldn’t be a friday i’m in love without a style blogger with short white blonde hair, but I swear, I’m not doing it on purpose!!

I just love how casual rock n roll this look is.  It’s super simple with the rock tee, perfectly fitting black skinnies, demin jacket and metallic pumps. The look just pulls together so well!  (it also helps it’s a Siouxsie shirt, I love  me some Siouxsie Sioux!)

I am a super fan of button-up dresses, especially button-up dresses with some sort of embellishment on the collar! I quite like the pattern of the dress and definitely love the contrasting yolk.  The nude heels are great and really make her legs look miles long!

BONUS// Isabell from Dressing Outside the Box //LBD – Or The Va Va Voom Dress

Isabell from Dressing Outside the Box // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

I know I’ve recently featured Isabell, but hotdamn, look at this babe-erliness!! She is easily one of  my favourite style bloggers!  This bonus feature is also compounded with the fact that I was just eyeing this dress up on Forever 21 myself the day before she posted this!

This is the epitome of the little black dress, it fits just right, is super sexy and will work for many occasions!

I’m busy trying to get used to my new laptop (YAY!).  It’s an HP and I’m sad to admit how dreadful I am now with PCs these day’s as I’ve spent all my time on macs for the last four years.  I was even thinking about downloading a skin to make it run like OS just so I can get my bearings.

I’m doubly excited this week,  because in addition to my new computer I also have plans to head out with a friend to take some proper & professional shots with his new camera!  I’m really looking forward to that, as I’m hating the grainy low quality photos I’ve been posting lately with my ipad.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my ipad dearly, it’s been really helpful to still get outfit shots done, but the camera is not the best and if it’s an overcast day, I loose the ability to take even halfway decent shots.

// what I wore //

I love monochrome, as you’ve probably noticed, most of my wardrobe is either black / white / grey or  off white.  My wardrobe is always running slim on pattern and colour.

This week I wore one of my favourite tops that I have owned FOREVER!  I sometimes think of letting it go, but something makes me keep it.  And Every time I wear it, I’m thankful I never let it go!

This skirt is just a perfect pleated skater skirt I got last winter while down in Las Vegas.  It’s the perfect basic and just makes so many outfits!

The real inspiration for this outfit though comes from the earrings.  They’re just tiny Eiffel tower danglies that I inherited from my Mother-in-law and I’ve always treasured them.  I know they are not worth a lot of money and that you can get these little trinkets on every street corner in Paris, but it still does nothing to diminish their charm for me!

They’re cute and remind me of Paris, a city that I truly love and can’t wait to go visit again.  Perhaps someday I’ll have an apartment there!
