OMG, No dress in sight!


The title of this blog post is quite ept. I hardly ever wear anything other than a great dress. I live in dresses and to some, it may seem boring, but to be frank, I don’t care; dresses are my style and I’m unapologetic about it (because surely that’s what a personal blog should be about?!).

However, I do like to break from my nom on occasion, and this outfit post is one of those occasions. I went to dinner a couple nights ago with the ever lovely, Hanna. We headed to a lovely Italian restaurant and ate like the little piglets we are ;p.

I found this skirt while looking through the Next online sale earlier this year. It’s something I would never normally wear because it’s hardly shy and retiring, but I thought it was really great and I loved the colours. Next is known for being quite pricy, but I got this skirt for £8! Total bargain. With skirts of this nature, it would be the norm to pair it with a black top, but I didn’t want to do that; so I paired the skirt with burgundy. The top is very light and isn’t too strong a colour to take the focus away from the skirt – I really like this look.

NB: I’ve decided that looking down is the way I like to pose at the moment. I’m not really photogenic, which doesn’t particularly bother me, but finding a pose to suit and one which makes me feel comfortable, is key with a blog like this – I’ve found mine….for now. Also, thanks to Hanna for taking my pics! :)



Skirt: Next (on sale)
Top: Next
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Tights: Boots
Shoes: So Fabulous (via Very)

Side note: I’ve been doing my regular M.I.A thing with social network – Twitter, Facebook and the like, are not on my agenda currently. I like to take a few days, or sometimes a week or so just to assess things without looking at these things. I know it’s not for everyone, but I like my sanity and a break is what I need (other than posting about this blog post, obvs!). I’m sure I’ll be back on it properly, next week….at some point.


Hope you’re all well - ‘til next time folks :)

Success

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic? Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where s

The plus-size world of the vintage persuasions audibly exclaimed when Georgina Horne of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust , announced a range of fabulous dresses she had designed for  Lady Vintage London , called Lady Voluptuous . There are four styles in total with a variety of colours and patterns, and being a 50s bunny who practically lives in swing dresses, I immediately set eyes on the Cosette , particularly after seeing Lucia in it. WOW, right?! But there was another dress that was catching my eye.....enter, the Medusa. The Medusa is another 50s sensation, but a fitted design. I have been hoarding wiggle/ fitted dresses in one of my two wardrobes for a few months now and realised how much I loved my silhouette after wearing this 'out of comfort zone' dress. I'm naturally an incredibly curvy (I know many hate that term, but I know what I mean) woman, but I have often avoided dresses like this through fear of the VBO; but during my continued journey to self-love a

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading
