Polka, Polka!

So I’m pretty much always in a dress. There are loads of variations in the type of dresses I wear, but one of my favourite patterns is the fabulous Polka Dot. I adore Polka dots and have many dresses of varying styles, colours, lengths, etc – all in Polka dot. It screams vintage to me and you know I love my vintage!

This gem was found while looking through the ASOS website for…..yes, dresses! The shape of this is cool with the zip at the front, and the little cute pockets. I’m not usually one for wearing anything without covering my arms, but this dress has just enough sleeve for me to feel comfortable.

It’s light, airy and perfect for this season.

With one of my ever trusted cardigans :)

Dress: ASOS
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Belt: Camden Market
Tights: Boots
Shoes: Next

Good length sleeves here - just enough for comfort if you don't like your upper arms

The pockets are super cute!

I wore this for my girl date with my great pal, Rosie. We headed to The Diner (I swear I spend most of my time there!), and we had burgers, lots of fries and a milkshake each; although they didn't have any Banana (I was beyond distraught!). Hanging out with one of my favourite people, in my new favourite polka dress - good times. :)

Hope you guys are well. 

Love and hugs,

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
