F&F – Electric Indulgence / AW Fashion Show 2014

Somerset House was the setting for the F&F AW Fashion Show 2014, and I couldn’t wait to get inside. The venue was erected in the beautiful courtyard and we were treated to drinks before the show began, the room was buzzing with excitement and anticipation for what was to come.
The Women’s collection started off with a groovy 60’s influence. There were bright, oversized orange Faux Fur jackets and coats, florals, sweaters and floaty colourful skirts. Each item was eye catching with layered and mixed fabrics that your eyes could do nothing but roam.

Darkness then insured with a 90’s glamorous Goth influence. My inner Goth was brought to the edge of its seat with gorgeous sequins, sheer, feathers, metallics and fabulous embellishments. The striking tailoring was also a joy and the jewels finished of the looks and added instant glamour.

Along with Black there were earthy berry and wine colours to bring a little softness, and my favourite piece was an amazing knitted jacket with a forest green feathered collar – stunning!

I was thrilled with the collection and couldn’t quite believe it was for F&F, this wouldn’t have been out of place at the recent London Fashion Week and I simply cannot wait to get my hands on the collection.

'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
