Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #1 ANIMAL PRINT

 Myself and four other ladies, (Kate from Australia, Nina from the U.S.A, Thulisa from South Africa and Laura from Canada) have started an exciting new venture with the fabuloso title above! Lovely Kate from Australia had the idea and got in touch with me and then we found the other lovely ladies. The idea is that we have a different theme each week and we all interpret the theme and write a post. It will be interesting as we are all from different places around the globe with different fashions and clothing stores so we can all check out other countries styles. All the links to the ladies blogs will be at the bottom of this post including photos of  their ever so pretty faces. So once you've read this, go check out their blogs. They are all gorgeous ladies! 

So, here is the first post!

Animal print isn't something I wear a lot. I have a hairband scarf, this dress and a navy & brown toned big comfy scarf and I think that's about it. For this post I thought I'd go all out. I LOVE this dress. The fit and length is perfect, it falls nicely and is very flattering. It's also really comfy. Great for a night out.

I actually first wore this dress for fancy dress. I had been on crutches ( FYI I fell over and tore my ankle ligaments), making shopping difficult so I made do. My friend bought me ears and a tail and I did red lips (wore off near the end of the night!) and red nails.  The nose and whiskers were a must but they looked a lot better pre drinks!! 
I don't usually like fancy dress but liked wearing this!

Ironically this cute kitty wanted to make friends with me when I went out to take photographs.  Animal attraction! Had to include him/her in the post!
Now its time to meet the ladies. Check out their blogs by clicking on their name:

  1. Very cute...and I've done that same fun move with the ankle ligaments. Once I even did it on my birthday. So much for cute shoes - I ended up in flip flops and an ankle brace. Hehe. PS - the kitty is probably a boy. Most orange cats are male (and most tortie/calico cats are female). Also, in my experience, most orange boys are very friendly and easygoing...and they tend to be plus-sized. :)

  2. Thank you for your comment :)

    My ankle is messed up. I've done it twice now. I'm seeing the physios and I've been referred to the surgeons. Eeek!

    The cat is so cute and ultra friendly. :)
