Firstly I need to apologise for the long delay in an outfit post. I have hardly left the house the last week and didn't think you'd be too interested in photos of me in pyjamas and stained t-shirts! Although if you are please let me know, I have nothing to hide! I don't want this blog to be a place where I'm only seen as someone who is constantly polished and put together. Because that's completely unrealistic and I too spend about 50% of my time bumming around like a slob.
So in an attempt to not leave my blog dying from neglect I thought I'd do a Grammy Fashion Wrap! I was majorly impressed by the fashion this year; I liked more than I hated which is a change! I was also glad not to see too many strapless gowns because I was getting majorly sick of that look. Fat or skinny I actually don't think many women look good in a strapless dress or top. Anyway I digress!
Now I know many people wouldn't be a fan of this dress but I love it. It's so Adele! I know, I know, it's quite a detailed pattern and a high-neck on a plus-size girl with a decent bust on her. If you've been reading my blog you'd know how I despise rules and I reject this one too. So what if it's not as slimming as a v-neck black wrap dress (the only dress bigger girls should wear apparently)? I love the vintage vibe, the midi length and the details on the sleeves and neck. Timeless!

I would wear this in a second! Please someone make this in my size and send it to me! Two of my favourite things right now: tapered leg jumpsuit and black and white! Love that she pulled her hair back simply as to not draw attention away from the stark contrast of the black and white. Don't love the bracelets; I think a giant ring would've lengthened the arms more.

I'm in two minds on this one. I think this is exactly how the body should be shown off. In balance! No boobs, just one long tanned leg. Plenty of skin but BALANCED. I'm directing this at the just-18-year-old girls going clubbing in their underwear by the way. I think J-Lo looks great; however the high bun is just too sever and is not doing her any favours. The loose drape of this dress I think would look better with big curls gathered to one side.
Skirt: ASOS Curve
I love this colour to death!! Mint is such a cute colour and I love how Katy Perry has injected some sex appeal into it. Again, she has BALANCED the sex appeal and although it's a lot of cleavage her gown is floor-length and long sleeved. And the girl has big boobs; is she supposed to pretend she doesn't?

There's a lot of sheer cut-outs around at the moment and I think this is another way to "show skin" but also keep some mystery. The shape of this dress is also really flattering.
Dress: Chic and Curvy

Both of the Knowles sisters made it on to my list! I knew emerald was going to be big this year and love it in this sparkle high-split design. The shoes are not a colour I would've thought would go but it actually really works! I'm really opening up my mind on mixing colours and breaking rules. Also LOVE how she's embraced the curl and gone wild and big with her hair.
Dress: Monif C
OK it wouldn't be a fashion wrap without a worst dressed list! I’m all for pushing the boundaries so I don’t generally passionately hate anything. And it’s the same with these 3 dresses. However I don’t love them and I don’t really think it’s working.

When I first saw this one I thought I loved it. The flowers, the little capped sleeves, the fullness, the plunging neck. But on second thought I love all those things but all together in one outfit? It’s just a little too much. So close!

Remember what I said about balancing showing skin?? THIS IS THE OPPOSITE! I think she may have missed the Grammy dress code. This is so many kinds of wrong. She might have a nice body but she’d be showing it off better by… well… NOT showing so much of it. Sheer is great and very in style. This. Is. Not.
I love Kimbra! Not only is she our sister from another mother (i.e. a kiwi), she lives in my city, Melbourne. She is such an attractive talented woman and this monstrosity is detracting from how beautiful she is.
What did everyone think of the Grammy's fashion? Favourites? Disasters...?
