The lovely Pippa over at Runway Revolution has started a online style challenge site called ChunkyFRESHdressed aimed at showcasing different fashion themes or pieces as modelled by plus-sized women of different ages, sizes, style and budgets.

It’s a great idea, and recently she announced the first challenge: Statement belts!

I was thrilled, because last week I bought this leather belt from Glassons (of all places!) and I’ve been wearing the heck out of it since then:

I’d been looking for another brown belt, because as much as I like the Target cheapie that I’ve been wearing that extra long tail doesn’t suit everything. I was surprised but pleased when this one actually fit.

The “Statement Belt” challenge at ChunkyFRESHdressed runs until midnight on the 13th, and it’s open to everyone so head on over – I’d love to see what you guys come up with!

Also new in todays post is the brooch that I bought from Cottage Industry at the Finders Keepers Market earlier this month.

See? Doesn’t it look like Suki?

  1. I love your outfit! So sunny- I need it today, it’s all overcast and gross. -_- Your Suki is adorable.

    So the challenge- is she posting the photos on the blog? Where will the photos be posted? I’d like to do this, but I don’t have a belt. -_- So maybe next time.

  2. Oh my god! I need that brooch!!! I have two identical cats! So funny.
    Unfortunately, I’m so far away 🙁
    Kisses form Argentina!!!

  3. I’ve never commented before but I have to admit I check this blog daily because I love seeing clothes that I’d pick myself on someone that isnt a teeny tiny size 8!
    Much Scottish love 🙂

  4. I’m joining the challenge too!! I will be taking advantage of the glorious weather we are having at the moment to get a few blog pictures under my belt – harhar!!

    Beautiful outfit! I love the brooch and Suki looks gorgeous in that picture!

  5. I love the belt and this blouse! The pattern mixing works perfectly in this outfit. And the little cat pin? One word: adorable!

  6. I love, love, LOVE the combination of sunshine-y, lemon-y yellow with dark denim! The floral/stripes look gorgeous together 🙂
    I’ve been following your blog daily for ages now and after reading about the ChunkyFRESHdressed challenge start, I have been inspired to finally start another blog – excitement!
    Thanks for your awesome inspiration xB
