I've been talking about my most recent personal thrifting trip on my facebook quite a bit lately. I only bought myself two items on said trip -- a pink v neck knit that will look great with jeans and a-line skirts and this (champange?) crop. I've been enjoying the fat crop top on international girls for months now and when I came across this baby I had to have it.




LOOK ONE: Stripes and Stones(?)

 Top - Thrifted // Dress - Jet // Shoes - (old) Mr Price
When I take my own pictures with a timer I forget my face 9/10 times, so I decided to crop my dead face out of these pictures. Sorry not sorry. Now, about this look...I've pretty much been living in this dress since I bought it. I'm wearing it every other weekend and hoping that it makes it to the some in one piece. I shot these the Saturday of the Soweto Derby and as I type this, I'm wearing it under my hoodie.  This is an awesome look for those warm but (not quite) days. Are stripes not the best thing ever? I want all of the striped things. I recently watched Poetic Justice for the first time and I want the top Regina King's character wears, fir and all -- and maybe her hair as well.

LOOK TWO: Floral + Leather
Top - Thrifted // Dress - Pep // Shoes - Mr Price // (p)Leather cap - Street Vendor

When I bought this dress from Pep in 2012 it was already not my size BUT being the pushy fattie that I be, I had to have it. I hadn't worn it since summer 2012 and things being what they are it's gotten even smaller in the breast area, I'll be turning it into a skirt. I want all the floral culottes from ASOS and this is where this look comes from. It's for that spring or summer day spent on roof tops looking at the city. I would certainly enjoy this a lot with light floral shorts or culottes. Review of these boots: the band could have been more generous.

LOOK THREE: Mqhewu Maven on the Move

plus size sports luxe looks, how to style sneakers, how to style a plus size crop top,
 Top - Thrifted // Skirt - (on sale!!!) at Boutique in the CBD // Shoes - Adidas Originals // Crown - Mr Price
sports luxe looks for plus size women, plus size sports luxe inspiration,

pastel flower crown plus size,
thigh slit plus size, plus size south african blogger,
Imiqhewu + creeper face.
Finally, some skin! This Skirt has been sitting in a plastic since April because where am I going to wear it to, bruh? I love it all the same though because double slit and pleats!Of all the three looks this is my absolute favourite. It shows some belly and is way cute and flirty. Those are two things I'm generally not but could try every now and then.

That's three ways to style a knit crop top (not really though because I didn't give any ideas, lol) all done.
