When you meet Olivia of Wait Until the Sunset, you will love her. Promise. That’s a Suger promise. My love of my fashion life thanks to her generosity and willingness to share. That and she has the most fun, free style of anyone I’ve met. Well, perhaps only second to my little sister. A bubbly belly laughing girl of wonder, I hope if you’re into all things plus size fashion you’ll pop over and visit Olivia. And for now, check out her style…

Hi there! Nice to meet you! Here is my life story (complete with embarrassing poop tales and cute reminiscing about past drunken adventures). Can I ask you inappropriate and probing questions?! Yep. That’s how your first meeting with me will probably go. Oh, as you’ve no doubt noticed, I’m also fat. I’m also hoping that amongst all my soul-baring and inappropriately nosy inquiries, you have happened to glance at my outfit and wonder where I got that fabulous dress from…..?

I love pretty clothes. I love tight clothes, strapless tops, short skirts, baggy clothes, stripy patterns, bright colours, loud patterns. I HATE rules. As a plus-size chick it gets pretty drummed into you that you should hide your body away or that you can only wear ‘this’ and not ‘that’. Well, I never liked rules much and don’t think anyone should! Fashion, to me, is about self-expression and feeling amazing which more often than not, occurs when I’m in something bright and short!

Style-wise I tend to wear girly clothes. Ruffles, brights, florals and dresses dominate my wardrobe. I love to accessories with a slight bohemian feel- chunky arm-candy/vests/capes. I’ve bought clothes everywhere; you’ll find sizes ranging from 16-24 in my bedroom, all in the ‘currently wearing’ pile. I love to hunt around in sales racks and chain stores to find gems and trawl the internet with an eagle eye for statement pieces and pretty dresses.

I think the most important thing with my style is that I dress for me: I dress in clothes that make me feel happy. Whether it’s a neon-pink skirt or a polka-dot romper, the outfit makes me feel fabulous and that is the greatest style of all!
