~ Crossing Lines with Domino Dollhouse ~

If you haven't already been lurking/oogling/wanting/shopping/loving/drooling on the Domino Dollhouse Website, then I suggest you catch up with the rest of us fatshionistas and become familiar right now.

Domino Dollhouse is one of my favourite online plus-size clothing stores of all time. What I love most about this store is that it's young, edgy, risky, and makes a statement. DD has a very loud, bold and distinct brand image - you can always tell when a piece of fashion is from Domino Dollhouse. It's also creative and different - something that's difficult to find in the plus-size fashion world of mom jeans, graphic tees and secretary dresses.

Leave it to Domino Dollhouse to take the popular fashion trend of leggings and turn them into a statement piece for all us plus-size girls. Not only do leggings from DD stretch and fit the even the biggest of thunder thighs (like my own) and are eeeextremely comfortable, but they make any top or dress *pop*!

Thus, when I opened my lovely little pink package from Domino Dollhouse, I couldn't wait to doll-up with the white and black striped leggings and the Lovely Tee in Black.


I love how Domino Dollhouse  isn't afraid to do something a little different when it comes to the design of their clothing - the leggings, well - they speak for themselves. But as for the black "Lovely Tee", I was quite taken by the way the cut was made off-center and interesting. The top (on moi) is quite cropped, and then loops and hangs low from one side of the sleeve all the way down the back of the top. It makes for interesting lines when considering the outfit as a whole. I also like how you could work with layers with this top.

Pulled together with some punk accessories and my grandfather's old stopwatch, I went for a "Down-the-Rabbit-Hole" influenced look - Tim Burton's punky Alice in Wonderland-style.

 Right now, Domino Dollhouse has an amazing new Astralnauts Collection that is out-of-this-world. No, seriously. It's pretty amaze. I suggest you go check it out and see what every other fat girl in the galaxy are raving about right now!

Happy Dressing at Domino Dollhouse, Dolls!

~SKORCH MAGAZINE NOVEMBER ISSUE~ Music Inspired Lilac Hair

 If you haven't already checked out SKORCH MAGAZINE'S NOVEMBER MUSIC ISSUE - do it NOW! One of Skorch Magazine's most fabulous issues, if I do say so myself - and yours truly is featured inside. Go check it out! <3

It has to be said. Music is my muse. I mean, it's a muse for pretty much everyone, isn't it? Especially when it comes to fashion. I have always taken musical artists and used them as inspiration for my own fashion sense and self-expression. Lately, my favourites have included the lovely Lana Del Rey, the seXy Xtina (or Christina Aguilera, for those of you who aren't on an Xtina name-basis) and finally - Kelly Osbourne.

I haven't been a huge fan of Kelly Osbourne's music in the past (is she even making music still?) however, I am completely, madlyyy in love with her style recently! I know, I know - she lost a lot of weight. But I don't hate the girl for it - you do whatever is best for you, whether you rock your curves or trade them in for something more svelt. But what Kelly lost in weight, she gained in STYLE. Have you seen this girl lately?! She has completely classed-up her look whilst still keeping a punk-rock flare - all whilst looking flawlessly feminine.


Now, I have taken and extra-special liking to Miss Osbournes HAIR. I am in hair heaven. The liac colour sets off her features beautifully. It pops (as alternative hair is want to do) yet still remains soft and extremely feminine. Being obsessed with anything pastel-hair, I just had to transform my own platinum locks into a lilac mane. For this, I use my favourite brand of hair dye: "Lilac" from La Riche Directions hair colour line. What I love about this colour is that it washes out after 3 weeks- a month (depending on how often you wash your hair). The gentle fade of the lilac will keep looking beautiful as it washes out...so I can have the colour without the total commitment.


 Kelly Osbourne also tends to rock classy, feminine dresses and fashion lately, but always keeps a bit of punk flare in her look. Inspired by the lovely Miss Osbourne, I have fashioned my own outfit that consists of black tights, a black sparkle skirt, a black mesh bodysuit (with a black bra underneath) and accessorized with a black belt, a punk-spiked bracelet in both black and gold, and some purple sequin flats to highlight the punk-pink lipstick I'm wearing. Feminine, punk, soft and hard at the same time. A beautiful combination, and one I very much enjoy werkinggggg.


 So, if you want to achieve this soft, punk-rock-princess look for yourself, get your pastel-hair on and bring out the black to rock, giiirl!

~Khaleesi Blonde~

I DYED MY HAIR GUYZ.

If it wasn;t already obvious from my last post, yes ~ I went and dyed my hair "Khaleesi Blonde" (or "platinum blonde" for those of you who are not Game of Thrones fans). You know me and my hair. Always needing to change it up and re-invent myself.

I decided on the Khaleesi Blonde since I've actually never been totally platinum-blonde before. I had that half-platinum/half black hair that was cool in the early 2000's when Christina went through her "Dirty" phase (you all know what I'm talking about) - but that's about it. So I decided to take the plunge and I just went for it.

Of course, it's been a few different variations of "blonde" since colouring it. It went in three stages: yellow, pearl-lilac, and then white. Let the hair/whore-ing photos commence!

  I'm totally loving the Khaleesi Blonde ~ what do you lovelies think? I love that I can wear extensions and add colour to it whenever I feel in the mood to colour/change it up. I plan on keeping and weeeerking this hair for a while.
