Colour. Tropics. Plus fashion. Flared sleeves. These are a few of my favourite things.
I pre ordered this ‘Irie’ Romper as soon as LA plus brand ‘Zelie for She’ posted some preview photos on Instagram. Vibrant prints are a must have for any wardrobe. I was quietly excited to see that the new collection had so much colour.
I could just picture myself wearing it around my tropical FNQ home town in Winter.
Now you all know I’m a dress kinda gal so the idea of wearing a romper worried me a little. To start with I have a large bust and hold my weight in my tummy area and have seen other women with similar body shapes post photos of them wearing rompers and every part of me said NOPE. That style is not for me. For an outfit to be fabulous it has to be flattering, enhance my curves and not make me look rounder than I already am. (each to their own of course)
As soon as it arrived I tried it on and I loved it. It’s equal amounts of sassy & sexy.
I’ve worn it quite a few times over the last couple of months and thought I would take some pics to share with you all. Nothing fancy here guys. Minimal makeup, fluffy hair and raw images uploaded.
One of the key differences (in my opinion) is that this romper is designed and made for plus size women by a plus size woman. I first met designer Elann Zelie at Full Figure Fashion Week in NYC. This fashionsta had major style. So I had 100% trust that her garments would be fabulously designed and fit like a dream.
There’s a tie at the back and with the generous neckline so it’s quite easy to step into the romper.
You’ve probably noticed from the photos that this garment has some serious bell sleeves going on.
This is one of those effortless outfits that doesn’t need accessorising as the print is bold enough. I wore yellow Colette Hayman stud earrings, yellow shoes I picked up in NYC a couple of years ago and a pair of oversized ASOS sunglasses.
