When it comes to clothing that makes me feel powerful, pencil skirts are always a go to item. I’m not someone who has the ‘acceptable’ plus size sort of body traditionally seen in the media, I don’t have a tiny waist, or a big bust, but I rock a pencil skirt even without the curves typically seen to go with it and love it!
River Island kindly sent me this truly fantastic faux leather pencil skirt for my photoshoot with Shannon Swift, and I fell totally in love with it. The zip goes all the way up which is naughty and so fun, and the faux leather is fantastic quality. I paired it with a shirt and a harness bra I picked up from New Look a while ago and I love the way this outfit looks. I wasn’t sure how this would fit as I’m bottom heavy so I sized up just in case, but I really didn’t need to. I find River Island fits really true to size.
I don’t have a cleavage to show off in the traditional sense, but I still love to show it off anyway, especially when a harness bra is involved. Personally I much prefer bralettes to bras, and harness bralettes are the perfect way to feel like a vixen and be comfy! After Nancy’s post on Fabric Phobia I love this outfit even more, long live faux leather!
