Sometimes you get really high fashion pieces that catch your eye and basically you can’t get it out of your head. Usually this happens and I’m in a state of despair as I realise whatever beautiful item it is, isn’t plus size. Stopping at a size 14 or 16 like a door slammed in my face. Well, when I saw this striped cape blazer from Lavish Alice, I was like oh hello! Then when I saw that it was available in plus size from Simply Be I was like OH HEYYYYY CAPE… COME TO MAMA! No, I’m not exaggerating.
Theres lots I love about this cape blazer. Firstly. It’s a cape blazer, available in sizes 16-26. (Yes I would have liked bigger sizes – let me just pop that in there). But I feel like having items like this above a size 16 really is stepping up. I was actually going to wear this to the Curve Fashion Festival last week. But, decided against it. I’m kind of glad I did as there were some gorgeous ladies wearing this jacket on the day, and although I love it, I’d like its first outing to be a unique one. You know what I mean?
The other things I like about this jacket consist of the face Lindsay Lohan helped design this. Did you know this was part of her collection for Lavish Alice? No? Well you do now. Can you believe it? Lindsay Lohan making a plus size range, bet even she’s surprised. The super sharp, bright stripes are so eye-catching it really feels like an epic piece and the fit is actually really good. It’s one of those pieces that when you put on you feel a little daft, I felt like bird with my wings out. Bu when you check yourself out in the mirror, you realise it’s an epic piece and your arms don’t stick out at all!
The question is, what to wear with these rather epic display of fashion. I saw a couple of lovely ladies rock it with a plain black body con dress. I wanted to give it more of a casual appeal if you like. So I wore a black ZIZZI shirt from Navabi and ripped jeans from ASOS Curve. I plan on wearing it with a white vest and blue jeans too. It’s pretty versatile considering it’s pretty in your face.
I’m chuffed with my cape blazer. Something I never thought would be in my wardrobe has definitely made its place and I feel pretty epic in it! good going Simply Be!
