Top Of The Frocks 2012!

Monday, December 31, 2012

I thought I would give you all a quick rundown of my fave 12 outfits of 2012. A chance to look back through the archive and see what has been worn and how. It was hard to choose just 12 so I may have sneaked in another. I am happy to say my picks are full of bold prints and lots of black and white prints. I have found comfort in standing out in a crowd instead of being the 16 year old me who wore only black and tried to make myself invisible. Body acceptance is a journey and clothes have been a major part in mine.

I have added click through links for each dress to the original post.

Counting down from

Animal Lover - My second attempt at a Leopard print dress and loving the results.

Pink Lips & Polka Dots - A fun print that made me smile when I saw it and the fit was good too. It is very boobular.

1, 2, 3 Stretch - A pretty cool dress I  got from Rachel in a size 18 and I made it work.

Spots & Stripes - I loved this dress and wore it to my first Leeds Plus Sized Clothes Swap and it inspired a few other ladies to be a bit more adventurous and wear stripes too.

Pretty Pink Flamingo - This skirt is something fat girls are told never to wear and why?? It looks amazing and is such a beautiful skirt.

Rock Around The Biscuits - A really fab retro print and what a bargain! From summer wardrobe to winter wonderdress.

Life Is A Bowl Of Cherries - A beautiful dress from a beautiful lady!

Beach Spots - I love how this year has sparked a swimwear revolution and fat ladies are showing off their glorious bodies in fab suits and bikinis!

Mad About Peggy - Clement Ribeiro for Evans range that had me swooning!

Minnie Mouse Dress - Fantasy come true! Dream dress for a polka dot obsessed Disney lover.

Simply Mono - More Spots and a beautiful comfortable dress by Simply Be for every occasion.

Domino Effect - A dress that had been never worn and kept for years was reclaimed and worn with pride as my fat acceptance journey takes me forward in leaps and bounds.

I had to sneak one final outfit in. This is another Clements Ribeiro for Evan dress the I wore to Plus North and It has so many good memories for me as I met some of the best ladies that day that I am proud to call besties.

  1. Love your top 12. My favourite is definitely number one, I really relate to holding onto clothes, but being scared of wearing them. You rocked that dress. :)

  2. Love them all ! I need that domino dress in my life, plus north was great can't wait for the next xx

  3. Lots of fabulous outfits!! I adore the flamingo skirt so much! It was on my wish list all S/S12 but I never managed to get my hands on one. You look amazing in it, and those people who tell fat girls they shouldn't wear this or that can just go jump!
