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!

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! 

// Sian from Forever Fabulous in Bows // What I Wore: leopard print cardi & sheer skirt


Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

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!

Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

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!

wishlist // the clutch

clutches

One thing about being a fashion or style blogger is you are always looking for the perfect accent to your outfit.  Some sort of punctuation and a clutch can be just that item!

I really love the trend of an over sized clutch lately, but even just a small clutch can compliment an outfit so nicely.  It’s a wonderful statement in taste!

I’ve been finding my clothing choices lately to be very monochrome, which works well, since it seems to be fairly on trend.  But I find myself wanting a little something extra for each look and I think it’s the clutch that’s been missing!

These are a few of my top clutches I’ve seen while online window shopping lately!  (Don’t forget that hologram clutch from last weeks ASOS wishlist as well!!)

1//Patent Leatherette Clutch – Forever 21. Cute and ready for a party & it’s on sale for $13.99!!

2//Nali 3D Stone Clutch Bag – ASOS, I love how bold this bag is! It’s large, bright yellow and studded! Be still, my beating heart!

3//Cutwork Clutch, SimplyBe, I adore the laser cut and the bright pink underlay! I also love that this one comes with a crossbody strap!

4//Vegas Cutout Clutch, Fashion to Figure.  I have been enamored with this bag since GarnerStyle posted it on facebook a couple months ago.  It also comes in a great yellow, but is sadly sold out in that colour right meow.

5//Modernist Faux Leather Clutch, Forever 21. Ultra simple & chic clutch that will work with absolutely any outfit!

6//Elusive Edition Bag, ModCloth.  This novelty clutch has a curious whimsy to it that just draws me in.  Absolutely perfect for witchy days or Harry Potter inspired outfits!!

 

What kind of bag are you coveting right now?

PS.  If you are wanting to see more of what I’m up to, like what I’m reading or listening to, or more ootd’s, make sure to follow me on instagram & facebook!

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 as well! 

// Audrey from Big or Not to Big //Drôles de dames

Audrey from Big or not to big // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.comAudrey from Big or not to big // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

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.

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

 

2// Amanda from In The Thick Of It // siouxsie and the banshees sunday

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!)

You can follow Amanda on her blog or instagram!

 

3// Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // Drama! And looking forward

Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

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!

You can follow Lauren on her blog, instagram or tumblr!

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!

Happy Friday!!!

This week flew by on account of getting back from Alberta.  I wasn’t on here much this week, but I was definitely all over the mobile sites reading bloglovin’, lookbook, tumblr &  instagram!

It was hard to narrow it down to my top three looks of the week, but I’m pretty stoked on them all!

1// Alea from The Haute Girl // Court Date

Alea from The Haute Girl // Court Date // friday i'm in love // margot meanie

I just found Alea this week through lookbook and I am completely enamored with her poise.  It was hard to pick a favourite outfit of hers as she always looks elegant & classy dressed up or down.  In the end I went with this, as it was my very first impression of her!

You can follow her on lookbook, instagram or directly through her blog.

 

2// Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops

Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops // friday i'm in love // margot meanie Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops // friday i'm in love // margot meanie

I’ve been following Bethany on Arched Eyebrow for some time now.  She is just fabulous fun & really knows how to rock pink, sneakers and pattern like no ones business!  This week, I chose this look by her because I loved how this casual look still packed such a punch!  She looks casual, edgy and trendy all in one.

You can follow her on instagram, twitter or through her blog!

 

3// Slade Vegas from Loquacious Glamour // Sladetheoneanyonly

20140606-131502-47702904.jpg

Slade Vegas is a fun alternative babe I follow on tumblr & instagram!  I love her hair and her attitude & just generally love how happy she looks in these photos!  She just radiates body positivity & looks so lovely in this sheer yolk skater dress and that kimono matched her hair perfectly!
