What I Wore: Monochrome + Mustard

11 Nov 2015

UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel mixes monochrome with mustard in this outfit post featuring Simply Be and vintage pieces. 

Okay, okay, I KNOW that in this gorgeous natural light my coat looks more camel than mustard, but TRUST ME! I promise it's mustard IRL!

This coat was a very lucky charity shop find! There's no brand tag inside. Only a wee tag saying it's a size 14 (HAH! IT FITS MY SIZE 24 BOD!) and that it is pure wool with polyester lining. 

See! Look at the lining! You can see more of the mustard shade there! I'm still getting used to wearing lighter tights than I'm used to. I generally wear 80-100 denier, and these are 60. I was worried that I'd get worse chub rub if the tights were thinner, but that hasn't been my experience! The chub rub situation has been pretty much the same. 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I'm really feeling this dress at the moment. I even had a poll on Twitter to help me decide between this stripe dress and a grid dress that I was also really into. Obviously, stripes won the competition! 

Also, I'm gonna be real with you guys. I haven't washed my hair in at least like, 5 days. Vintage/retro/pinup/rockabilly hairstyles are SO good for dirty hair! It looks like I made an effort and looks glamourous even though my hair is a bit on the gross side, haha!
