Disco Diva, Oh Yeah!

Sometimes you find yourself wanting to wear something different. I find that it can be boring if you only dress for the day to day situations in life. Don’t you ever just want to have fun with the clothes that you wear? I like many women have an obsession with things that are shiny lol. Lately I have been on the hunt for metallic and chrome footwear and clothing items. When I saw these fab items from the Glamorous Curve range at Simply Be I knew I had to get my hands on them!

I look at kids and I’m jealous of their freedom when it comes to clothing. They can wear whatever makes them feel fun and fabulous without anyone batting an eyelid. In adulthood you have to be prim, proper and practical most of the time. Whenever I get the chance to play around with my look I take it! I wanted to experiment and wear something a little different. As a musician I like to channel my inner diva when I can. In this outfit I feel like the ultimate disco diva!

I got this mini skirt in UK size 26, US 22. I really like this one, even though it is pretty short! The fabric has no stretch though so if you have a belly and a large booty like me you will need to up-size for extra room. If you enjoy picking up fun clothes that are easy to maintain you’ll love the easy to wipe clean fabric. The side pockets are purely for decoration though. I find that for a simple mini skirt the fabric brings that extra wow factor to the item.

The thing I love about this outfit is that each item has a wow factor of it’s own. Take the slogan t-shirt for example, there are so many out there the market but this one has a fun simplicity about it. I have to say I felt really good wearing this outfit and the t-shirt did make me wanna say “OH YEAH”! I’m wearing this one in a UK 24, US 20. For a basic white tee I know i’ll be wearing this one with a variety of my outfits.

Of course no outfit is complete without an amazing pair of shoes! To see that the Glamorous Curve range included shoes was a huge bonus! I just had to have this pair of heeled silver chelsea boots with matte finish.  I love that the silver perfectly compliments the skirt and adds even more shine to the look. This is a pair that I plan to wear with many looks so keep an eye out here on the blog for some future styles. Simply Be currently have a large range of shoes and boots for people with wide feet and big calves so be sure to check them out here.

We’ve not had many sunny days in London as of late. We’re in that strange phase when the days are ending earlier, nights are getting longer and skies are filled with grey. I took full advantage of the sunshine and pulled on a fab pair of mirrored sunnies from Polaroid. These Palladium shades seem to be the go-to pair when i’m dressed like a disco diva of sorts lol. Sometimes you just have to wear something that takes a look over the edge!

So yeah, I like to have fun and be a little out of the box. Sometimes you just need to experiment and express yourself with the clothes that you wear. I decided to wear an outfit that not only said “OH YEAH” but made me feel sassy and fearless. I’ve said on previous posts that I’m trying to become more confident with my legs and so the best way for me to face a confidence demon is to meet it head on! The more my pins are out and on show the better i’ll feel about them. Putting on a pair of fish net tights and a shiny bright mini skirt is definitely a way for me to do so!

    Love the photos :) You look amazing and so happy in the clothes. That mini skirt is lovely, I do prefer ones that are a bit stretchy though- they’re easier to sit down in!

    • Mayah says: 21st November 2017 7:26 pm

      Thanks hun, appreciate the compliments. I agree with you about having that extra stretch but the good thing is that this one is a simple wipe clean item which is always helpful lol

    • Mayah says: 21st November 2017 7:28 pm

      Thank you. I’m someone who likes to experiment and push myself out of my comfort zone so it is a style that’s rather different for me to wear x

    You look so cool and the outfit looks like it suits your personality – fun and sassy. Like the slogan tee which is fun and the skirt puts some pazzaz in the ensemble.
