Ahh Meryl. Your career is divine; a celebration of your incredible talents. You’ve tackled roles that are hard hitting, emotional, scary and funny. You’ve made me laugh, you’ve made me cry, and you’ve made me wince (lets not talk about Mamma Mia), but nothing compares to Miranda Priestly. The Devil Wears Prada is a basic bitch film, but there’s something compellingly brilliant about the stereotypical characters, not least the fearsome and fleeky editor of Runway fashion magazine. I could watch it a thousand times, and still relish in every lip twitch of Meryl’s perfectly puckered pout. #fangirl
Last week I published a treasure trove of the rainbow’s warmest colours and what’s available for us plus-sizes on the high street. Today, I’m gonna focus on the cooler side of the palette, and begin with my favourite colour (here’s a shocker):
It’s no secret I love green. It’s the colour of nature, and the colour of my hair. It’s also another one that people have a love/hate relationship with. I’ve met many women who have categorically refused to wear green, stating it ‘doesn’t suit them’. Well I’m sorry, but I don’t think there’s a single person who ‘doesn’t suit’ green. It’s just all about the shade you choose! Again, there’s some shameless self promotion below amongst these stunners:
Green looks fresh, funky, and opulent. Again, it suits all hair colours (but looks particularly amazing on redheads!). You can introduce some pale, minty hues to your closet or go all in with a rich emerald. For me, there’s no such thing as ‘too much green’, but I’m aware this is a strong opinion! Here’s some beauties available in the current plus-size market, priced from low to high:
What I love about these gals is they aren’t dressed head to toe in purple and pink every day, and some barely wear it at all, but added to these outfits the colours just look incredible. I’m particularly crushing over Hayley’s pale pink tutu skirt, which I witnessed her hand-dying from a pale cream colour! Sometimes if the high street doesn’t have what you want, you gotta make it yourself!
There is plenty on offer to quench your pink and purple thirst though:
