OOTD - Yellow Roses

(Altered) Dress - ASOS Curve // Shoes - Bodyline // Garland - Handmade by me // Necklace - Primark

Thought I'd show what I've done to my latest ASOS dress, which can be seen in it's original form here. I'd been lusting over a Topshop dress that had a layer of lace for the waistband, but obviously Topshop clothes are never going to fit me, so I decided to make my own version. I really love the fact you can see my skin through it, which I'm sure many people would have a fit at, seeing as I'm omgz deathfat! Finding lace that would work though, was a pain in the butt! Topshop's verson had daisies on a net background, but finding anything similar was impossible, so when I finally saw this vintage lace on eBay, I had to bid on it! Not quite the same, but still pretty!

I also saw a deer before we took photos - I think it is a Muntjac (sp?). It was just shuffling along by the fence, so I quickly grabbed my camera & snapped a few pics. I must have scared it though, because it then decided to turn around & go off into the undergrowth.

  5. So cute. You inspire me so much with the way you alter and change your clothes to your style. The dress is beautiful and the shoes, well they almost call me away from my masculine boots and doc marten ways.

    Also I am all about plus size girls wearing lace and sheers, so people can see their gorgeous skin. In fact, I may blog about that soon because it is my faourite trend at the moment. :)

  22. I love the lace waistband! I think it adds a really awesome touch and I absolutely adore peeks of skin. Let people talk! Whatever, it's a beautiful outfit, even more so because you altered it yourself. (You're making me want to learn to sew...someday, I'm going to have to sit down and do it!)
