Vouchercodes Clothes Swap


Hi guys,

So this week, Hanna (who also took my outfit photos <3) and myself headed to Vouchercodes clothes swap party. We had to bring five items of clothing and/or accessories in exchange for stamps we could then use to exchange for other donated items. We got there quite early, but there were already lots of people there who had donated and rummaging for new treasures.

We had a really nice time and the event ran smoothly with lots of helpful staff and a great bunch of women to have a chat with. During the evening, we met the lovely VintageFee who is also a plus size blogger and it was great to see her. There were not many plus size women about and because of this, I didn’t mange to get any items for myself, but Hanna got lots of cool things for herself, her flatmate and her lovely mum :) …actually I did get some good stuff – cupcakes and penny sweets count, right?! :p

This is what I wore. I was really hoping for clear weather as nude and rain do not go hand-in-hand. Luckily, the weather was nice and dry. I think this outfit is one of my favourites, because for once, it’s not a dress! The nude skirt is gorgeous, pleated and lightweight; and the top is actually a crop-top (I have plans to wear it as an actual crop top once we get some proper sun!):
Skirt: Love Label
Top: Love Label
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Tights: Boots
Shoes: Timeless (via Dorothy Perkins)


There's always room for an outtake! 

And a momento from the night :)


'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 said…
