What I wore Wednesday : Plus Size Pirate Fashion

Women dressed as a pirate What I wore Wednesday.  Plus Size Pirate Fashion Tomorrow September 19th is  National  is Talk like a pirate day.   ARGH… This past weekend my family attend the PA Renaissance faire. It was Pirate weekend so I wanted to dress like a Pirate of course and look fashionable.   I looked though my closet determined to wearing something I owned.   The Renaissance fair is more fun if you dress up because you become part of the show.   I was dressed mild compared to the people who go all out.  So here is my outfit. pirate fashion I wore a striped tee, long black skirt (I know I could have went for a shorter skirt).  I tied a scarf around my waist, which came in handy for when the temperature went down to 60 degrees later. I grabbed all my pirate booty from my jewelery box and put it on.  Just give me a reason to wear all my jewelery and I am in.  I love dressing in costume. women wearing Jewlery

My hair : I did a side swept french braid.. Then I took a 4″ X 45″ scrap of pirate themed fabric to tie around my head.  My son took the pictures we forgot to get a picture of my braid but I was thrilled I did it myself, in the car as we traveled to the faire.  Not exactly a Pirate costume.. but the Ren Faire though I was dressed in a costume..so win they gave me a discount on my ticket.

It was a fun afternoon.  If you want to learn more about the PA Renaissance  fair and see what I made for my daughter check out my other family blog Superexhausted PA Renaissance Faire Tips
