Next on the list to review is the Vixen Pencil Skirt in powder pink, the troublemaker top in black and white stripes, and the bad girl crop top in pink and white stripes.
*Disclaimer* I am in no way affiliated with Vixen by Micheline Pitt or its owners. This is an account of my own personal opinions and experiences, and I have accepted no payment or compensation for my views.
Here I've teamed the Vixen Pencil Skirt in powder pink, with the troublemaker top in black and white stripes, and then accessorised with a pair of pink sparkle Big Betty hoops from Miz Smitten Kitten.
The Troublemaker top, will no doubt go down as one of my all time favourite tops in the history of tops.........I've already ordered the same one in leopard print, and will likely collect them as they are released in different colourways.
The fabric on this baby is just lucious!! A beautiful weight stretch knit, that is double faced on the front, so not only do you get a smooth seamless look, but there is no chance of seeing through it at all, which is a common concern for me as generally when a top is stretched over my ample bossom, it gives the world a lovely view of what I've got goin on underneath.
Sleeve length and top length is perfect, and the neckline is scooped and sexy without being so low that I have to fidget with it to cover my bra.
A must have casual staple, that washes up like brand new, and goes with everything from a cute pencil skirt as pictured, to a pair of knockout jeans, cute shorts, full skirt or even under dungarees.....the options are ENDLESS!!
The Vixen Pencil Skirt in powder pink is limited edition, so if you love it, get on it quick, before it's sold out!!
I saw these on the website, and didn't not like them, but didn't have an undying urge to own one straight away, so didn't order in my initial purchase. Months later I was shopping in Lana-Rose Fashion in Ballarat, and having one of those days where you try on everything in the store, and came across this skirt. They didn't have it in my size (2XL) but I took the XL into the change room anyway, never expecting for a second to be able to get into it and low and behold, the skirt not only zipped up, but looked KILLER on and I just had to have it there and then!!
Now this skirt fits firmer than I'm used to, but the fit I get from sizing down is knockout!! The way it perfectly fits my waist instead of gaping like most pencil skirts do. The way it hugs my butt and magically makes it seem perkier??!! The way it doesn't pull across my hips at all, as though it has been made to measure.......I just can't say enough!!
Made from a gorgeous stretch cotton sateen, that has enough stretch to perfect the fit, but not too much so it remains firm like a pencil skirt should be. It has almost a sheen to the fabric, not so much to look at but to the touch, which is oh so luxurious. Lined in an equally as luxurious stretch charmeuse, this skirt slides on like a cheeky dream, and the silkiness of the lining prevents it from riding up.
If there is a downfall, its that I cant really wear a garterbelt and stockings underneath, as the indents show through, which could be easily fixed by sizing up to a less painted on fit..........but gosh I love how painted on looks!! Problem solved with seamed panty hose instead of stockings.
Another way to wear this beauty, is to incarnate Barbie herself!! Which brings me to the bad girl crop top in pink and white stripes.
Now, don't get me wrong.....I'm a bopo kinda gal, so I don't avoid crop tops because fat girls shouldn't wear them. I avoid crop tops because with my ample bossom, a crop top can sometimes look a little xxx on me, because it's not long enough to cover the girls.......cropped is fine, but barely covering nipple is another matter!
The bad girl crop makes me feel...........well it makes me feel like a BAD GIRL!!!! But wrapped up in Barbies super sweet clothing, which is totally my asthetic. The fabric is super stretchy, allowing it to mould to the curves of your body, which is great for an hourglass figure like mine.
I love the little high neck, and cap sleeve detail, and the way it sits perfectly at the top of a vixen pencil skirt.
My only drawback, is nothing to do with the top and everything to do with my choice in shapewear. I like to wear high waist shapers that I tuck up under my bra, to create a smooth finish to fitted clothing, lower than my bra line creates an over spill just under my bra and over the band of the shaper, so tucking it up just creates the silhouette I prefer. This type of shapewear is fine if you are all covered up, but in the instance of a crop top, there is always a chance of a cheeky torso flash, or in my case a shapewear flash.......I'm yet to work out a solution to this conundrum but will keep you posted with my progress!
All three pieces a MASSIVE thumbs up from me!! See how I've styled them differently below and don't forget to subscribe to keep up to date!!
