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.

duster vest –  c/o SWAK | shimmer disco pants – ASOS | solid lug sole boots – urbanog

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 derrière, 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 | afternoon tea

monochrome | plus size blogger margot meanie

This weekend I finally took advantage of a gift certificate given to me by my sister for x-mas to go for afternoon tea.

Mister Meanie and I thoroughly enjoyed all the tasty decedent nibbles, he sipped on black tea, while I opted to upgrade to some matcha, as I really love it and I don’t get to indulge in it often enough.  { photos of our afternoon tea are below }

It was also the perfect outing to rock my brand new shawl { cape, wrap? } which I had just scored at the thrift shop the day before.

Though I don’t always find clothing while I thrift, I always have luck with accessories and shoes.  I whole heartrendingly recommend giving thrifting a try, especially for trendy pieces you don’t want to break the bank over.  I’ve found clutches, platform shoes, metallic belts and an array of vintage hats in my journeys.  My next item I’m on the hunt for is a fringed leather { or leather look }  bag, I’m really feeling fringe and I predict it is going to explode before the summer.

I also decided to rock a monochrome oxblood combo, with my f21+ cutout crop top & my velvet midi which I got from online plus size thrifting guru The Curvy Elle.

Online is another really great way to thrift while being plus size.  There are oodles of shops online through etsy or their own independent websites, where they curate excellent thrifted and vintage plus pieces. { the curvy elle & ursa major plus are two of my favourites!}

It’s a great way to save a buck, support a small business and be environmental all at the same time!

Do you ever thrift or do you have tips or favourite online thrift shops you’d like to recommend?? please let me know in the comments!

For now, I will leave you will some photos of our afternoon tea, make sure you’ve eaten first, or else you’ll be hungry!

outfit | young girls, they do get weary

Canadian alternative plus size blogger, MArgot Meanie in Missguided, Addition Elle & f21+

I posted on facebook about how much I adore the 80’s movie Pretty in Pink and how much it has { and continues to } influenced my personal style.

I like to think there is no single character that speaks to my style senses more than any other and though I thoroughly enjoy everyone’s style so very much I just can’t help but fall head over heels for Duckie, his style { and character } is my fav.

I was extremely fortunate to win a gift certificate from The Curvy Fashionista’s 6 year anniversary giveaway month, back in December.  She had so many giveaways that month, it was amazing, she spoiled everyone rotten.  I was lucky to snap up one of six gc’s to Missguided.

I had a hard time choosing what to spend my winnings on, especially with their lovely new plus size range, but I settled on only one item from the plus range, as these shoes won my heart instantly.

The love I have for these shoes…they are just so killer cool, with their patent leather shininess, pointed toe, gold buckles and subtle platform….I just knew Duckie would approve!

My second item was this really cute cropped tartan jacket.  I ordered it in a size up as I wanted to be able to layer with it, and I’ve happy I did.  Though with sizing up, it’s not as cropped as I hoped it would be.  But, happily, I am able to do some tailoring myself and plan on taking about 2-2.5″ off the bottom so it hits where I want it to.

I’m also rocking some older jeans I picked up from f21 maybe last year or the year before.  I wasn’t getting a lot of wear out of them recently, but then I decided to rip out the knees and I can’t stop wearing them now!

And lastly, this sweater is my boyfriend sweater that I won from PS it’s Fashions give away from a few months back, I already featured it here.  I just love this sweater and I don’t know how this escaped my notice, as I  have been wearing it constantly since it has arrived, but while sitting in the pub with my sister in law one afternoon, about a week ago maybe, I realised it has elbow patches!!

I ♥ elbow patches.

They are the same material and not contrasted, so I guess that’s why I hadn’t noticed before, but boy, did I feel like a dunce!

What are some of your biggest style influences?  Does it come from movies, music, magazines, bloggers?  Let me know as I would love to see!

outfit | back to black

With Valentines fast approaching it’s awfully hard to not want to rock a romantic outfit.

Although I don’t celebrate the day in the normal sense, that doesn’t mean I still can’t sport a lacy frock if I want to!

margot meanie // plus size, alternative stylemargot meanie // plus size, alternative style

I picked up this dress from f21 while I was in Las Vegas last winter.  It’s kind of a perfect date night or party dress with it’s tulle skirt and lacy bodice.  I’ve seen them bring it back twice now, once in a beautiful shade of oxblood, so I’d keep an eye out for it as you never know, it may make yet another return and I highly recommend it.

For once, the fit is dead on.  No squished boobs, no hugely gaping armholes, no waistband coming across the bust line because there is not adequate fabric to cover the ladies!  It was definitely a a glorious moment being able to try something on in store and know it was coming home with me!

So I did something tricky here and added a “strap” to my clutch by putting a beaded necklace under the flap! I thought I was being pretty clever!

You can also see, the black hair is gone.  This is a brief stop over in the land of auburn, I’ll give it a month and then I’ll be hitting the bleach bottle up again in an attempt to get it light enough to attempt grey, but I need to get all traces of red out to realise that dream first!

I’ve gone around online and found some similar styles & some personal favs of romantic little black dresses for you to shop at your own leisure, as little black dresses always come in handy, regardless of the date…

this weeks song title was Amy Winehouse, as you can see my black hair is gone, but not my love for black..







outfit | your favourite colour is that of red wine

monochrome & lens flare // margot meanie

There is no colour in this post, other than the lens flare {look out JJ Abrams!} so the name of this post is misleading, the words are lyrics from a song that is often playing in the back of my mind,

“your favourite colour is that of red wine, which leads me to your favourite past time”

If you scroll to the bottom, the song is ready to play.  It’s pretty mellow.

This is just a simple black and white outfit.  I’m dying to get my hands on a couple black blazers.  I really want a nice cropped one, a sturdy basic one, as well as a long line blazer, a tuxedo blazer and a long line sleeveless blazer.  But for now, my draped cardigan will have to do.

Here are a few of the blazers I’ve been lusting after

Are you curious of my blog title today? here’s the answer, I often title them with lyrics from songs that are stuck in my head…

outfit | gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is

margot meanie

this is just a quick ‘hello!’ of an outfit post.  I’ve been a busy bee with the holidays arriving what with crafting, baking, decorating, making gift guides and birthdays I have been absent from taking outfit photos.

So this is from Sunday when I went down to a craft fare with Mister Meanie and one of my favourite couples to hang with, Amanda & Amelia.  After the market, we stopped in a beer tasting room for some samples and then split off to do some x-mas shopping.

This spot seemed ideal for a quick photo session so I asked the mister to take some photos before the light was gone.

Trying to get photos with the waning light has been a struggle.  It’s on the weekend or not at all and if the weather is wet, it ends up being not at all.

I can’t really link to anything I’m wearing as it’s either older, vintage,  thrifted or from Ross in Las Vegas.  But the skirt and hat are both from Forever21, but the skirt is a few years old meow and the hat is well over a year old at this point.  the jacket is by New Look from ASOS last year there are similar ones in stock though {here & here}

I’m really hoping for some snow, but it’s incredibly unlikely in this part of Canada.  We only get a few weeks at best, but if we do get it, you better believe I’ll be out there in a heartbeat trying to get multiple outfit sets.

outfit | a new religion that will bring you to your knees

…black velvet, if you please.

Boy, am I dating myself with that song!  But I stand by its greatness.

I’ve been waist deep in luck lately and I’m extremely grateful for it!

I have been lucky to win quite a few contests online.  I had great luck finding some bitchin’ shoes whilst thrifting and I was lucky to be invited to Vancouver Alternative Fashion Weekend, which took place, this past weekend.

It was an awe inspiring event, full of couture, music, art and performances.  I came away feeling immensely inspired not to mention impressed.

It’s extremely satisfying seeing friends and local artisans succeed, which pretty much sums up the event, a success!  My pal, Samantha Stroman, floored the crowd with her beautiful, elegant and inventive line!  Next week I will be featuring images from the runway, I can’t wait to share!

Today, I will share with you what I wore on the Friday evening.

I scored the adorable cut out back crop top from Forever21+ for super cheap, {I bought it in burgundy as well! } and the skirt is also from forever21+ but is a few months old now.

Those amazing sparkly shoes? Those are awesome shoes No. 2 I found with my thrifting karma!  So pretty!  It looks like they were originally sold through Urban Outfitters, the brand is Kimchi Blue and there are colour variations available online through ebay for resale.  The clutch was another score from my thrifting trip.  I love that it’s big enough to fit my ipad mini in it.

But the BEST part of this outfit is this freaking GORGEOUS Noir Fringed Kimono from Addition Elle.  This is the second item I purchased with my winnings from the lovely Liz Black and her month of giveaways on her fabulous blog  P.S. It’s Fashion

Not only is the kimono super trendy right now, but it’s super versatile.  It can take any outfit to dressy in an instant!

It has some really beautiful detailing, including a fringe that runs under the arms, but the burn out in the back is really amazing!  Its way more beautiful in person than when how I saw it online!

I love it!
