Occasionally, the problem with being a curvy gurl is that you potentially feel as if you have no business emulating a celeb’s style that looks so different from you for fear of the “who do you think YOU are?” naysayers. I’ll be honest, with this look, that was me for a minute! But I’m old and wise enough to get that, even if an outfit is the same as someone in the public eye, I will inevitable wear it differently but can rock it just as well! In the immortal words of Ms Megan Trainor “it’s pretty clear I ain’t no size 2, but I can shake it shake it like I’m supposed to do”. Hells yeah!
Anyway moving on….my celeb inspired style is this gorgeous girly – Rochelle Humes. If ever a celeb seems to have her shiz together and does so looking pretty glam, it’s this lady!
I’m still a very firm fan of the bandage dress – yes, I do believe some of the styles are perhaps a little dated, but isn’t that true with any garment that’s been out there a while? In my opinion they’re like full body of magic pants that smooth everything out, what girl wouldn’t be happy about that? My version of Roch’s look is a little more toned down because I’ve opted for a subtler colour of the dress, and as I’m a lot shorter than her it’s also a little longer which is better for me. I’ve played with two different ways to style it – slightly tousled hair and shoe boots to try and give it a funky twist (which worked surprisingly better than I expected) and sleek locks with a demure pointed court to keep it classy.

I purposefully ignored accessories as I felt like the top detail of the rest should be the point of interest. If I was adding in a bag I’d go for a simple black clutch, a shoulder bag may ruin the shoulder line.
