Now, I know one of the "what not to wear" rules for plus-size women involves not mixing different patterns. I believe this is a rule because supposedly combining textures or patterns makes you look bigger. But I've never much enjoyed following these rules, and I don't at all mind if something makes me look chunkier than I am. Quite frankly, my goal when I get dressed isn't to find things that make me look thinner, but things that I like and think look good. So as you can see, the top, skirt and tights are each their own pattern, and I must admit I love this outfit. Perhaps it makes me look even more voluptuous, and perhaps this is actually why I like it to begin with. I think emphasizing one's curves and plus-size body is a beauty thing -- perhaps this is also why I've included photos of myself eating a sugary tart.
