Plus London Three Aftermath – The dresses!


So when you’ve got a weekend like Plus London Three, you know as a blogger you have to make a bit of an effort but when you’re one of the organisers, you can’t pitch up in just anything! As Simply Be were our main sponsor, they were incredibly kind in offering to dress the organisers for the Saturday. We thought we’d have somewhat of a theme and decided we would use blue as a feature.

I headed over to the Simply Be website and saw the below dress. I loved the cut, the pattern and the sheer ‘V’ at the top so immediately picked that as my option. When I opened the package, I was so surprised at how soft the material was; it’s an almost leather/ wet-look dress so thought the material would be a little more abrasive than it was, but it was super soft and very comfy to wear all day:

On Sunday we decided that ease and comfort was the way to go and for me, there is only one place to go for that – Lady Vintage London. Regular readers will already know how much I adore Lady V and I recently discovered my dress count is nearly in its 20s. It just goes to show though, once you find a place that fits your needs, why feel obliged to change?! I love how their dresses fit my body and I always feel great whenever I wear one (and that’s very often!):

I love the contrast in both dresses and each were perfect choices for the days I wore them. Everyone looked amazing and there were a lot of “where’s that from??” conversations which is the ultimate compliment from anyone, but particularly a fellow blogger.

I hope you are all well and I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts about PL3 :)

‘til next time!


Love and hugs,

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

When a photo shoot is about more than just the pictures

There have been a few things that have made the last year and a bit, difficult. I have a life mantra: keep the legs pumping. This has been my life philosophy for as long as I can remember and it’s what has kept my head above water at the worst times. I am well aware that anything I might be going through is nothing in comparison to some others, so I have always tried to suppress whatever has been going on, believing that my “trivialities” were not worth worrying about or bugging other people with. It is only until very recently I have actually realised that my feelings are worthy of acknowledgment, that I have every right to be upset about things, and I was doing myself more damage by pretending I was ok when I wasn’t. I have Sian and a cluster of other wonderful friends to thank for this epiphany. They have no idea (until now, I guess) what their encouragement for me to feel what I was feeling and not feeling guilty about it, was ok, means – I’m so grateful to them fo
