Oh no! I lost my subscribers, did you know I moved?

hello

Hi friends, a few months ago, I moved to a self hosted WordPress site. With the move, my jetpack was supposed to move my subscribers over, but it’s become apparent to me lately that that did not happen! ūüė•

MAJOR BUMMER!

So I’m hoping that I can post this here and alert you to the new place you can find me! I’m still blogging, and I feel like my content has gotten even better as time has past. So if you are still interested in following me, check me out here –> margotmeanie.com or you can follow me via bloglovin’–> here¬†!

Thank you so much for all of your support and I hope to see you over at my new home!

Today I bring you the last of three looks from SWAK designs.

They kindly gifted me three amazing pieces, all of which I’m pretty in love with, but I think the top from today’s post is my favourite, since I’ve definitely worn it the most already!

So, I’ve pretty much been wearing this blouse non stop since it arrived. It’s just so …ME!

black? check!

sheer? check!

bit o lace? CHECK!

It fits really nicely as well. I’m kicking myself as I snipped the tag off so it didn’t show through the lace, so now I’m not 100%, but I think it’s a 2x, but it could be a 3x, but I’m pretty sure its a 2x.

I’ve been mostly wearing this top with either skinny jeans or my disco pants from ASOS, but I¬†think you could add a tube or pencil skirt if you’re going somewhere nice, or throw a blazer over it if you’re looking for edgy yet slightly sexy office attire.

And while I’m gushing…

…then there are these jeans. These mineral wash skinnies are made of dreams and comfiness! I ordered these in a 20, and they are the BEST jeans I think I have ever owned! I’m quite impressed as usually f21 jeans are just kind of the type that you make do, because they’re cheap and you just really need some new jeans since the crotch blew out on your old pair and you can’t possibly repair them anymore without it being¬†noticeable!

So these jeans are almost more jeggings than jean as they have an amazing stretch factor, they’re soft as kittens and they have real pockets. On top of it,¬†I really am digging on the mineral wash.

So if you ever see me around town, it could be very likely this is what I’ll be wearing on dates, grocery shopping heading to a pals, because it has basically been a uniform since the pieces arrived on my door step!

Have you shopped SWAK before? This top, the Bianca duster and terri chiffon duster  { click links to see my posts on each item } were my first items from them and I have to admit to being completely won over by the brand!

AND they currently have a sale sitewide¬†which ends Sunday, so it’s a perfect time to check them out!

outfit | goodbye, farewell Domino Dollhouse

I was originally going to title this post “and the sky was made of amethyst” or “bricks are heavy” as I usually title my posts after lyrics or song titles. But that’s not the only reason why, it’s also because I am featuring this killer pretend that we’re dead grid print vest from indie plus retailer, Domino Dollhouse.

The entire line is inspired by grunge goddesses like Hole, Garbage, L7

It was kind of a match made in heaven.

But  I changed the title last minute as sad news hit late last week, Tracy, owner and designer of Domino Dollhouse let the cat out the bag, Domino Dollhouse will be closing.

I know, you’re heart is probably crumbling right now. In just a short two week span, we have lost two pillars of the alt indie plus community. { CandyStrike has also closed it’s doors, Elizabeth has started school again and the load was too much to carry both her indie brand and a full school course. }

Though Candy Strikes closure was much more swift, Domino Dollhouse will be around until November. So you still have a chance to snag a few pieces from her latest line, Doll Parts.

I am so happy to finally have a piece of Domino Dollhouse in my wardrobe.

I remember about 3 or 4 years ago when I finally became aware of her shop. I was in a rut and desperately searching for awesome alternative clothing choices and not just making due with what I could get elsewhere. The very first item I coveted was a bright pink floral moto vest, much like this one I have here.

It was a bold, feminine, in your face, holy-shit-I’ve-never-seen-anything-like-this-in-plus-size-before kind of revelation. The vest was sold out of my size, but my eyes were watching what was going on.

Through DD I was introduced to Tess Holiday¬†{¬†then she was known as Tess Munster¬†}¬†who I started following on instagram, way back when my feed was nothing more than drag queens, make up artists and tattooers. I look at my feed now and it’s a fatshion, body positive, weirdo arty collective of awesome that I can’t imagine my day’s without! { the drag queens are still there too! }

So I have to thank Domino Dollhouse, even though it took me so long to finally own a¬†piece, and I regret I don’t own more, they kind of sent me on course to realise a truth of mine, that plus size fashion is my absolute passion in life and there are other ways to get involved that I had never conceived before.

Thank you, for serving our community so well for so many years! Good luck with your growing family! I will await and hopefully be part of the next new thing to spring up for us alt plus gals.

So here we find ourselves down two alternative plus resources. Where are we to turn next? Who will rise to¬†occasion¬†and fill the gap? It’s clear there are plenty of alternative plus gals around, but where¬†shall we shop, who will design for us?

outfit | killing me softly

I swoon!

Over these photos taken by Jesse Smith and particularly over this Bianca chiffon duster from SWAK.

I told you you’d get sick of this hat!!! But it’s in one more outfit from this shoot day, so bare with me.

I have to say, I felt pretty powerful in this outfit. The duster would catch the breeze and I felt like a frickin model! This is going to be very popular over a simple outfit of black leggings with a tank and it will notch the fashion level up on such a comfy and simple outfit.

It comes in two prints, but my heart belongs to black lace, so it was the obvious pick for me!

It’s just so pretty!

Something else about these photos, I am wearing ankle booties, with bare legs. This is something young me would have never done. I used to HATE my stems with a fiery passion. If I wore anything that cut me off above the ankle I thought I looked atrocious. But now, my legs may just be my favourite body part! I love showing them off and I get compliments all the time!

Just goes to show, that tailoring your media can open your eyes that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. And it allows you the chance to see it in yourself and in others.

outfit | oh my stars

You guys!!!!

I had the MOST fun last week on my first official¬†photo shoot with someone other than my husband. Someone with a real camera and not just an ipad! She has official photosoot stuff with her, like a grey board and shade screens! K, I don’t know the¬†official names of those instruments, but she had them!

So here is the first outfit out of four we shot that night. Sadly this swing dress in star  print from ASOS  sold out so flippin fast { scratch that, they have a couple in UK 26 left!!}! But they have some other cute stars prints in right now, like this pencil skirt, which I would love to own!

I am all shades of smitten with every aspect of this outfit!

Soon as I saw this dress, I knew it had to be mine. But since it was selling so fast, I settled for a size smaller than I had wanted. It still fits, but it pulls a bit over the bust. I had wanted a UK 24 but got the 22 instead.

I absolutely HAD to have the moon and star arm cuff to go with! This cuff is meant for your upper arm, but I elected to give it a twist so I could wear it on my forearm so its visible with this dress.

The booties are part of a bit of a binge I had on urbanog, I bought myself 4 pairs of booties, but I remember last Autumn, I was so bummed that I had missed out on three pairs I liked but had sold out before I had the dough to buy them. Well, I am set for boot this year, I tells ya!!

And lastly….this hat! This. Hat!!! I have swooned over¬†the wide brimmed Yves St Laurent hats for a few years now, knowing they would never enter my life. I had found a few that had smaller brims, but just hadn’t bitten the bullet and treated myself. Now I am happy I waited!! This hat is EVERYTHING! You think you’ve seen my wide brimmed pork pie hat a lot, well buckle your belts, it’s ON with this hat!!!¬†Margot Meanie | Canadian plus size bloggerMargot Meanie | Canadian plus size bloggerMargot Meanie | Canadian plus size blogger

outfit | I’ve been a bad, bad girl

We may have been putting off our taxes a wee bit, I know, we’re terrible BUT we finally did them a couple months back and mailed them in. After waiting two and a half months after we posted them off we¬†received our return and we’ve each been shopping up a storm since, so you’re going to be seeing a LOT of new outfit posts in the coming weeks!

I treated myself to four pairs of new boots { that’s right, FOUR!!! }, a mini haul from ASOS, another from boohoo {¬†you’ve seen one item so far} a lil something from Domino Dollhouse which I cant wait to share and a big haul from Forever 21 for both Mister Meanie and myself.

Still on the docket, I have yet to order a body chain from Ready to Stare because I’m stumped on which one and which colour…I think I have it down to the pentagram harness, but in black or gold? HALP ME!! And I will wait ever so diligently until the Boleyn dress is back in stock on Chubby Cartwheels.

I may have also splurged on an Ipsy subscription and a whole bunch of liquid mattes from ColourPop! It’s been ridiculous fun.

This outfit is featuring my new disco pants from ASOS, my new Joan of Arc { clone high anyone?! } stomping platform boots from urbanog and a perfectly gorgeous terri chiffon duster gifted to me by SWAK.

I have been craving disco pants for sometime, ever since I first saw them on a straight size friends butt. ¬†I have coveted them. Now these aren’t the exact ones I wanted with the high waist, zipper button closure on the front and pockets on the derri√®re, but they do have the shine I was going for. These are basically just spandex straight outta the 80’s/90’s, but they are comfy and I think they look badass! Especially with these boots, but they’re gonna look awesome with all my boots {¬†eeeps, I can’t wait to show you them all!! }

This vest though? It’s so pretty and gives my all too often all black on black on black looks a much needed and totally fun pop of colour. I love how it flows, the cut is really pretty and I even dig on the pattern, which I all too often shy away from. This is a winner that will make it into many outfits! I can’t wait to rock it with my black crop top and a black tube skirt! Oh and the vest is on sale now!!

outfit | makes me wanna cry

Oh, that title is misleading.

But maybe this dress makes me want to cry tears of joy. ¬†But even more accurately, it’s my first purchase from UK brand Boohoo, and I am SMITTEN!

Boohoo “Robyn Double Layer” dress | bag – Avenue {sold out similar here¬†}¬†

This dress is breezy, flirty and comfortable!

I ordered it in a Canadian 20 {UK 24} and it is generous in size, I think I could have sized down one size. But It flows nicely, I love it anyway.

The fabric is polyester, but because of the cut and fit, it’s still really cool. And it unwrinkled like a dream if you pop it in the dryer for 5 minutes!

This dress is almost sold out, so get on it quick!!

I also ordered a long line sleeveless cardi which will be featured soon! I can’t wait to rock it for Autumn. It’s a gorgeous knit, with a waterfall lapel and it belts. Totally dreamy!

In addition to these two total scores, there was one flop. I ordered the¬†Leila¬†mesh¬†crop bikini. I didn’t even bother tryng on the bottoms once I tried on the top and saw what a disaster it was. There was zero support, my boobs literally fall out the bottom of the top. Then there¬†were other disappointing features, like the “cup” molding pieces {which were tiny} weren’t sewn in place, so they float around, spin around, move around, I don’t know if mine was faulty, or that’s how they make them all. But that was a MAJOR let down.

But let’s not end this post on a downer…

Are you going to participate in my #rebelliousselflove challenge in September? I would love to see you bright shining faces flipping the bird! Feel free to share this image and you can start using the hashtag now if you feel it!
