As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I am trying to implement a plan that makes it easier for me to post on a more regular schedule thus keeping the blog active. I have been working a lot on the back end portion of that, but I am still trying to put out some posts each week.
But as I was thinking about what I wanted to post I realized that last year I had a lot of pictures laying around of various outfits I didn’t get to blog about. I really wanted to share them. And while a lot of things may no longer be available, some things still are. And even if they are not, someone may find inspiration in the outfits somehow.
I am not going to go into a lot of details on this post. But I will let you know where each piece came from, and anything that is still available I will make sure to link to the item. And please keep in mind, some of these items can still be found in resale places like eBay and the like.
Here is the collage of looks from this past year that I missed talking about. I am going to take these one at a time below and list where each item came from.
The top left and center picture are obviously the same look except I have on a jacket in this picture, so I am only using this one to cover everything.
The Jacket: This is from Torrid, it is their Military Style Jacket. They no longer have this exact one, but they have one that is very similar called their Fitted Military Jacket.
The Top: Also from Torrid, but nothing similar offered at the moment. Though they do occasionally bring this style back and I have seen similar at other stores.
The Leggings: Yet again from Torrid and no longer available. But Torrid does have a somewhat similar pair available called Plaid Skull Leggings.
The Shoes: These are the Gessica Ballet Flats from Easy Spirit. They are so comfortable, and they are offered from N to WW in width.
The Top: Also from Torrid. While it was called something different when I got it, you can still get this top. It is now called the Cinch Lace Babydoll Top. Torrid is constantly rereleasing this top in various colors with new names. It is very comfortable and a pretty universally flattering shape. I have this top in at least three colors.
The Pants: Surprise, these are from Torrid. They are the Noir Collection All-Nighter Pant – Slim Fix Pixie Skinny. If you haven’t tried these before you really should. They are like if a pair of Yoga pants and pair of dress pants and pair of spanx had a threesome, and that somehow miraculously produced a child.
The Purse: Is from Steve Madden but is unfortunately no longer available.
The Shoes: They are Cherry Patent Leather Mary Janes from a brand called Madison Comfort. I bought mine on Zulily. I did a quick search and couldn’t fin a website for the company or anywhere else to find them other than used. This brand sells on Zulily pretty frequently, and they are really comfy and offer wide widths. If you are not already a member of Zulily, it cost nothing to sign up, they are just a flash sale sight. In my opinion one of the best especially for plus sizes. Plus sizes are always included every day. You can sign up here.
The Necklace: Is Betsey Johnson, however it has long been sold out.
The Top and Shorts: Both of these items came from CATO’s. And while they are both sold out, they do have a somewhat similar pair of shorts in a different color. You can find those here.
The Shoe: If you have read any of my previous posts where I wore flip flops, you should know what brand these are by now. There are some rare exceptions to this, but for the most part my flip flops are almost always Flojos. They don’t seem to be selling this purple color anymore, which makes me sad. But you can still get this same style in other colors. They are the Cami Flat Sandal from Flojos .
Snapped this picture when I first got it in, and ended up wearing it to two cons this past summer.
It is not available at this time, however it has been brought back once already since the original release. Also you can check Torrid, Hot Topic, and Her Universe for other plus size Doctor Who themed clothing.
The Duster: From Torrid it is their Lace Front Button Tunic.
The Top: I got this corset style top, which is the black and red part you see peeking out, at the Avenue last year. They don’t seem to have anything similar this year. But if you wanted a similar look Torrid has this Lace Babydoll Bustier Top .
The Pants: I am wearing those same Noir Collection All-Nighter Pants that I had on with the red top.
The Boots: Again I know you can’t see them, but I have on another pair of something I bought on Zulily. They have great deals on wide calf boots (like seriously you can find some under $30). They even occasionally have double wide calf boots. The ones I have are from the Journey Collection. Check above for the link to sign up.
As always look forward to hearing your feedback and questions.
