Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #8 Celebrity Inspired

Phew this week has gone fast! I hope everyone is enjoying the heatwave? 33 degrees celcius is a tad hot me thinks. What's going on England?! 

Anyway, it is that time again and this week the theme is 'celebrity inspired'. 

My first thought was Adele as I love that girl but her awards style outfits are usually floor length black of sparkly black gowns none of which I have hanging around my house. Her 'off day' style is mostly photographed as leggings and a big woolly cardigan with a messy bun. Not the most exciting and a big woolly cardigan in 33 degree heat?! Not so much!

So another thought I had was Khloe Kardashian Odom. Clearly I do not have a crazy celebrity lifestyle and I definitely don't look like Khloe (although I do want my hair ombre/ dip dyed asap!) but  I really like her style and like the fact she glams up but also has her casual days wearing jeans, cardigans and comfortable clothes.
Researching more into Khloe's style I noticed a few things repeated. Wavy big hair, bold red lipstick, lots of eyeliner, lashings of mascara and always perfectly polished nails, big sunglasses, big earrings (often silver hoops), animal print, black jackets, giant handbags, and lots of black clothing. Khloe also often accents a chic all black look with small bits of colour and print eg a red lip, colourful handbag or scarf or vibrant nails.

Clothing/shoes wise I went for a black jacket (George @ Asda), plain black vest top (New Look), black skinny jeans (Matalan) and blush coloured sandals with bow and sparkle detail (Debenhams).

Accessories wise I added big black sunglasses with gold arm detail (Accessorize), an animal print scarf (Primark) and this:
Boccia black watch 
silver hoops bought in Spain
Mustard yellow statement ring to add a pop of colour

Modalu large Bibi bag in 'Shark'
Make up and hair wise, I did my hair wavy although it was a tad windswept in the photos! I did a bold red lip, bronze shimmery eyeshadow, lots of black eyeliner and lashings of mascara.

Rimmel London Salon Pro Lycra Nail Polish / Varnish - 237 Soul Session -  Nude
I absolutely love this nail varnish. It is so simple and chic and looks fab with any outfit. (Full review coming soon!).

Overall, I love this look and to be honest it's similar to my own style. I love a basic black outfit and adding in pops of colour. I think its chic and timeless and would suit everyone! Plus its easy to do.
