Spring/Summer Grunge Plus Size OOTD Feat Attitude Clothing & Primark

( all together now )


And purr I did lovelies, It was a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon Attitude clothing as I fell in LOVE with their Plus size dresses which I shall go into in a sec. Sadly tho, the dress didn't fit, so in the end got THE most UH-MAZING bag which has now been nicknamed BEAST :P and these wicked Skeleton hand hair clips.



Now I realize this might not be everyone's cup of tea / coffee or hot chocolate but I absolutely ADORE this bag. Its a gorgeous faux leather furry drawstring backpack with this lovely purple and pink furr flap with studs. There's 2 magnetic pockets on each side and the bag itself has several pockets within which is just perfect as I like to keep my phone in one and maybe chewing gum and my oyster in another and keys. The straps are adjustable and it's pretty damn comfy to wear, I've had many a people stroking beast and making compliments and if a backpack isn't your thing, They have a very similar bag to beast but as an across body bag so winner winner chicken dinner. I wanted my outfit to be still sping/summer wearable but with that hint of grunge too so I rocked it with my New Skool Tee from Primark that you all loved in my Primark Haul video and my Faux Leather Skirt from Primark and some pink pumps from MRP Fashion!


It should come as no surprise that I love a good hair clip, be it an oversized glitter bow or a skeleton hand..or two :P These are such great fun and can take the most simplest of ponytails looking like a work of art. Already had several friends ask to try them on haha, Looks Like I know what everyone's going to be stocking up with at halloween :D


A bit about the brand



Now, When I think of "Attitude" clothing I think Punk, I think Rock and I think Studs, skulls and leather, one thing I don't think is plus size. As a plus size woman ( insert sob story here ) I have always wanted to have a rockabilly or burlesque type dress and sadly, I've always had too much junk in the trunk.. and everywhere else :P Attitude Clothing has a plus size range XXL - 4X now for those that don't understand the sizing, here is their size guide.

XL - Size UK 162X - Size UK 18, 3X - Size UK 20, 4X - Size UK 22

Trying any new clothing line, one of the main things that personally puts me off from purchasing is worrying I'll order the wrong size and then ordering a bigger size while you send the wrong size back and yadda yadda yadda, its too much effort. So I'd recommend going to a website you have purchased from before so you can easily compare measurements between the safe site and the new one. For me, its Newlook Inspire. I have pretty much 1 of everything from Newlook, Jeans, tops, dresses, jackets, the works. Usually I'll get skater dresses in a UK 24 ( Bust 50 inches / waist 44 inches ) usually the skater dresses have an elasticated waist so this of course helps, If the dress has no elastic to it, I think I'd personally go for a UK 26 ( Bust 52.5 inches / Waist 46.6 inches ).  Attitude Plus's biggest size is a 4X ( Bust 44 - 48 inches / Waist 44 inches ) So I went with the 4X on the Arcadia Dress below, Sadly as you might of noticed the bust was smaller then my usual 52.5 inches of space and as I couldn't zip it up over my boobs but it would of looked so nice. god damn having big boobs! I did however want to share with you some of my favorite dresses from their Plus range, at least If I can't wear them atm, maybe you guys can :D!







Everything about the Claudia 50's Dress from its cut down to its white polka dot material makes me need this in my life. It's just fabulous. Granted I feel like I should be offering to do all the housework but doesn't it just look amazing! The Cordilia Dress is just to DIE for. The gorgeous off the shoulders bust and the gorgeous floral design, it's simply fabulous!



The Toto 50's dress is a bit more fun with its halterneck top I love the fabric and the buttons down the bust! A similar design to the Arcadia 50's Dress It's probably the most " ME " dress on the site which is the one I ordered that didn't fit. I love the red and the black detail, the gorgeous rose, skulls and anchors fabric. I love it, just gutted it didn't fit!



I had to add in these 2 pairs of shoes, The skull heels are amazingggggggg and OMG the boots.. I NEED THEM! How amazing would they look with the bag!!!!! 


Seeing as I didn't get to do a lovely outfit post featuring one of their dresses, I thought I would do one better and do a VIDEO of this outfit for you instead and of course a closer look at BEAST haha, the bag and hairclips. Please do let me know if you like the video as I've never done anything like this before and would love some feedback :) x
