Anna Scholz and Simply Be – Match made in heaven

Hello lovelies!

This will be a (relatively) short review as I want to shower you with photographs, but last night was the official launch of White Label by Anna Scholz. Anna and Simply Be have a wonderful collaborative relationship and being Valentines Day, I couldn’t think of a better partnership to celebrate!

The event was held at Anna’s working studio. It’s so rare that a designer whom is so successful and held in such high regard, would invite a hoard of people to their work home, but we were all welcomed with open arms by both Anna and Simply Be, and it felt really personal and less corporate than other events. I know how lucky I felt to be there and see the working environment, and was treated like an old friend.

Now, the collection. Us eager bloggers couldn’t wait to get inside the show room to have a look. We were not disappointed and our hands immediately started exploring. The White Label collection had everything: crocket, fringe, leather, patterns, bright colours, dark colours, sequins, lace, embroidery, mesh, cut-outs, cowl necks, trousers, tops, skirts, dresses, jackets, lingerie, and, and, and….! It was like Cher’s closet in Clueless – only better! Everything you could have possibly wanted was there for trying on, gushing and touching. One of the great things about last night was although the collection was displayed in certain sizes, staff were on hand to whisk away and bring a different size to cater to the masses and we were all thrilled. Again, this never happens and is why Anna and Simply Be are a cut above.

White Label was so well received and we all walked away with a bulging list of things we wanted, and the below pictures of my favourites will show you why:

I love the mesh on this dress.

All the colours!
All kinds of prints and textures....
My favourite lingerie piece.

See, now you have a bulging list of things you want to buy!

So a massive thanks to Anna and a massive thanks to Simply Be – truly a match made in heaven, and long may it continue! You can shop White Label now.

Side note: myself and the ever lovely Caroline got talking to Anna about a corset manufacture and managed to get a peak of the Autumn 2015 line. Oh my goodness, we are in for a treat and our bank balances will be crying as a result!

‘til next time.

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

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
