Celebrity Style Capture: Rihanna

I've been wanting to do a Rihanna style capture post for so long, but she is so hard to replicate.  Her body type is hard for me to relate to and the bold items that she wears are something that is hard to pull off, especially when you add in plus sizes.  (I tend to try to stick to celebrities with a similar body type to my own.)   A lot of the items that she wears are rarely offered in plus size fashion without some sort of alteration.  She takes casual to the level of chicness that I have yet to see many celebrities accomplish.  I see Miley Cyrus trying and succeeding sometimes, but seldom to the level of Rihanna.  The funny thing is even through all of her amazing outfits, it's her rockstar attitude that always sends her looks launching into orbit.   This further reiterates my belief that attitude and confidence can be the most important thing you wear.  To be honest, I felt pretty bad ass in this look.  I was ready to slam a paparazzi camera on to the ground, but there was no paparazzi, just my husband and I didn't want to slam my own camera.  HA! For those wanting to accomplish this look, but may not be comfortable with the mid drift showing you can add a simple black tank.  I definitely will wear this to the airport with the tank.  I'm always cold in airports.  

Style Note:  For the first time, I am actually ordering ASOS pants.  I am totally confused with the sizing.  They run really big and I tried a 24, sent those back and sized down to a 22. I could have still sized down one more size.  I wish the ankles of these pants were tighter and the waist was big and I added my own tie string.  I still haven't mastered their pants sizing yet.  I've really been doing a lot of trial and error to determine my sizing.  I also altered the sweatshirt myself with just a pair of scissors. 

Outfit:  Top - Old Navy, Pants - ASOS, Shoes - Macys (similar), Lip - MAC Ruby Woo

  7. I considered buying those pants a while ago, but I haven't had much luck with their pants sizing either. Even when I sized down, they seemed way too big in the waist and if I sized down again, I'm pretty sure the thighs would have been too tight. Oh well, I still love their dresses and tops.

    1. Because I'm so bottom heavy I am so reluctant to size down in any pair of pants because I know what my true size is and I am afraid they won't fit. These get bigger as you wear them, so I think you should size down twice. The thighs will be fine. The thighs on the 22 were still loose..I could hav e gotten the 20.

  10. I love this look. I find that sizing at Asos is really inconsistant whether it's pants or dresses

  17. I love this... you look amazing, totally killing it! On a side note, I've been shopping ASOS since they came out with the Curve range a few years ago and I'm still trying to get my size right. The pants are tough... I'm a 22 in most brands but I'm anywhere from an 18 to a 22 depending on the cut with them so I'm very thankful for their free returns. Lots of trial and error.

  19. Cuuuttteeee outfit Lady!!!

    I'm funny with Asos pants myself. I normally get leggings in a 3x so that they double as a high-waist shaper and sometimes bra (just kidding). :). I can probably get away with a 1x no problem (I'm a size 20/22 in pants).

    Love these pants...maybe I'll give them a try if they're still available. :)

  21. I really wanted these too, I got them and the 16 was sooo big. I probably could have gotten a 12 because I think a 14 would have big too. Anyway I love the outfit a bunch!

  22. Yeah my suggestion would be to see if they have these in regular sizes if the 16 was too big.
