OOTD #86: JUNAROSE
Hellooooooo winter weather. With the temperature dropping faux fur is keeping fashionistas warm everywhere. From stalls to hats to coats in an array of colors. My entire look is by Junarose, I walked into Plus Bklyn and this coat was one of the first things that caught my eye. A faux fur that’s fully lined and has POCKETS, how could I say no. Coat is available in sizes 0X – 2X, I’m wearing the 2x over a LBD.
Dress features side ruched details, round neckline and 3/4 length sleeves. I accessorized round neckline with pink pom pom necklace available at Plus Bklyn. Dress is also a 2x and hugs my body nicely.

OOTD #82 : Sweeney Stripes
As you know I spent the past couple months costuming Sweeney Todd. Jessica (my partner in costuming) and I had a themed pattern and color palette that was apparent through all the characters looks. Red, white and black mixed with stripes. There were also red splatters every where but you can blame that on the demon barber of Fleet street. I took my outfit inspiration from our costume theme and put together a look for myself for the finale show. I wanted to see my work from the audience so I got a ticket for the finale show. After designing for the cast I wanted some Sweeney stripes of my own, so here is hat I whipped up.
Black and white striped tunic with cap sleeves, and a ruffled flounce at the hem. I designed and sewed this tunic myself. I purposely sent the stripes in different directions to putt your eyes where you want them too. I paired striped tunic with solid black stretchy leggings. I accessorized the look with red tennis bracelet, red lippie and red suede round toe ballet flats.
I absolutely love wearing my own designs, because they are one of a kind and it feels good being an original. Want a custom Fatshion Forward piece of your own ?

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #81: The Golden Rules
Happy Fatshion Friday loves 🙂 With the Fall season approaching rapidly I wanted to give you babes my golden rules to transitioning your waredrobe from summer to fall.
Rule #1 : Thou Shall Layer: Tanks , Camisoles, and short sleeves shirts can be layered over a long sleeve shirt or turtle neck. Short sleeves can also be layered under cardigans, blazers or sweaters. Add leggings or tights under short skirts and dresses.
Rule #2: Thou Shall Play Up Colors : Play up the darker shades in your summer prints like I did with this look.
Rule #3: Thou Shall DIY: Get creative ! Dye your light spring and summer colored clothes a darker tint. Whites to Nude. Yellow to Mustard. Pink to Red. Purple to Eggplant.
