I freaking love when City Chic release amazing unique fashion forward pieces such as the Ombre Dream Maxi Skirt I'm wearing above. When I saw it go up in the new arrivals pics on City Chic's facebook page I let out a little squeal and quickly defended it against the facebook haters because, yes it is different, but that's exactly why its amazing. The fact that City Chic do come up with some pretty fashion forward stuff for us curvy ladies is something that should be celebrated. I wore it last night to a fancy fashion launch on Sydney's beautiful harbour (well normally beautiful, the rain and grey skies nearly ruined the night as it was meant to be open air, the organisers had to rush to secure covering's at the last minute which you can see below).
I got a lot of compliments on the skirt all night with skinny fashion girls lamenting the fact that it doesn't come in their size (don't you love when that happens, normally its the other way round!). I fitted in perfectly with the glam beach theme of the event but kept warm by wearing leggings under the skirt. I teamed the skirt with a mix of vintage and Australian designer pieces and some statement jewellery in my usual kooky way.
