The humble shirt is a staple in most wardrobes but in mine it’s been noticeably absent. Being curvy means finding a stylish shirt that fits in all the right places has been a struggle for me.
Well last night the mister and I headed out to dinner to celebrate his birthday. The anticipation of fancy food after a couple of weeks of rabbit food had me excited, I was also feeling a ‘million bucks’ because I had some stylish shirt AND pants action going on.
Oh yes, new season pants from Harlow landed in my post box this week and I love them hard! The ‘Glycerine Queen dinner pant’ are everything! With slim leg fit (but not too slim) and ankle ruching detail they make my legs look AHmazing. They also feature an elastic back with flat front and the fabric is a fabulous Japanese Triacetate.
These pants drape beautifully and after an evening at dinner there was no crushing. They are a little long for me but with a heel it’s all good. Because I want to wear these for casual fun and dressed up occasions I’m going to have my alteration lady ruche the sides just a touch more to bring the length up, then they will be perfect for ‘me’. I’m wearing an 18 in the pants and shoes are from Mollini.
Oh and ladies, in breaking news I can now offer you 10% discount off all new season arrivals from Harlow! Yes just use my code ‘SC10’ and reap the rewards. In the interest of disclosure you’re not the only winners, I will also receive a small commission, happy days? Harlow also offer After Pay and FREE postage on orders over $150.
Now, back to the shirt. Kennedy’s Boutiques have produced another winner with the ‘Take You Anywhere’ shirt.
With 7o’s inspired bell sleeves, a longer line (to cover all your bits) and an on trend curved rear hemline this stylish shirt ticks soooo many boxes for me. I was actually giddy with joy when I tried it on, the concealed buttons and mandarin collar mean this shirt shakes of the masculinity of a regular collared shirt, winning!
And look at how bloody stylish it is would you…
I was channelling Stevie Nicks 🙂 and my fabulous earrings are made by local label DEUX.
You can grab this shirt via phone order through Kennedy’s Boutique 02 94530036. It retails for $139 sizes s-xxl and I’m wearing the xl. Kennedys also offer FREE postage to Styling Curvy readers.
