Celebrity Style #2

OOTD #92: Celebrity Style

Hello fatshionistas 🙂 How did your week go? Do you know one of my most popular posts to date is my Celebrity Style post with Kendall Jenner. So I’m back at it again with a new look this time by Leona Lewis. I enjoy turning Celebrity Fashion into Fatshion. I’m recreating some of my favorite straight size looks worn by some of your favorite celebs and show you how to achieve the look in your size. Now let’s talk about his Leona Lewis look inspired by this fabulous striped maxi skirt I bought during my last trip to One Curvy Boutique.  I took to Pinterest and google looking for some ideas since nothing that came natural to me felt quite right.What did the results produce, you ask? This lovely photo of Leona Lewis on the red carpet in 2015 at the GLAMOUR U.K. Women Of The Year Awards. I let the stripe skirt be the center of the look as it’s dramatic length and fullness definitely exudes star quality. Just like Leona I paired my striped maxi skirt with a strappy crop top and black blazer.

I made the look my own with a bold red lippie and my accessories. I tried the mitch match trend via Betsey Johnson earrings and kept it trend with a layer pearl necklace. Can I just say that I love every time pearls come back in style they are personally one of my favorite vintage jewels.

Drop me a comment below and let me know who’s look you want me to tackle next 🙂

What I Wore To See Sweeney Todd

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 ? Contact me at FatshiionForward@gmail.com with “Custom Design” in the subject line and a brief description of what you had in mind. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

Who Said Fat Girls Can’t Wear Stripes?

Hey Girl Hey. This morning I took to Polyvore to bring you some end of summer style inspiration. I put together a few outfits to show you babes how to rock stripes in different ways. We are breaking that old fashion rule that fat girls can’t wear stripes. Stripes are a classic and popular pattern why should we miss out? Whether it’s the iconic black and white stripe or a colorful stripe, style it as you please. First up we have a striped sheath dress from JCPenney.

These black and white stripes are going in a few different directions which makes the dress more on trend and flattering to the body’s natural curve.
