Cut For Evans

This will be a word light post and you’ll thank me for it once you see the incredible collections I’m about to show you! Last night, Evans had their ‘Cut For Evans’ launch and it was a celebration of two ridiculously talented young women: Alice Farrow and Rebecca Partington. Evans sought to collaborate with our future designers and with the mountain of entries they no doubt received, the design and buying teams chose university students, Alice and Rebecca to create something wonderful for the plus size community to embrace.

And embrace it we have! The first thing that struck me was the array of colours and prints. These are not designs you usually see for plus size women and I’m thrilled we now have proof that bright colours and bold prints are not something designers should be afraid of when designing for plus size. All my lovely fellow bloggers tried pieces and mixed and matched pieces together, and all looked out of this world! Both collections are just perfect for the coming months of spring/summer, and both collections are unashamedly attention grabbing – which is exactly how clothing of this nature should be.

Alice and Rebecca have done an amazing job and I hope this is further encouragement for other brands and designers to be brave, listen to consumers and allow us to indulge in the Bold and the Beautiful (do you guys remember that show? An appallingly good but bad American TV show). But enough of me, I’ll let the pictures do the talking...

Alice Farrow – Silky jersey-like material with bright colours and graffiti inspired prints. The collection includes a jumpsuit, shift dress, tapered trousers, jersey shirt, sleeveless chiffon shirt, and a tube skirt:  

The ever stunning Georgina, showing exactly how you can mix and match the prints <3

Rebecca Partington – Knitwear collection with bright colours and bold illusion prints. The collection includes a long line tunic, leggings, bolero, and a knitted top and skirt:

And the two gorgeous ladies the night was all about! <3

I’d like to thank Evans for the invite for lasts nights launch, and a huge thank you to Alice and Rebecca, and their ‘breath of fresh air’ vision. You can shop the entire collection now

‘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
