Rebel, Rebel!

There have been so many examples from my fellow psbloggers that yes, we CAN wear crop tops and rock it! I have an increasing collection of crop tops and my Spring/Summer will be midriff central! Also, this outfit pretty much encompasses most things plus size women are told they shouldn't do:
  • Midriff showing? Check!
  • Tulle to add lots of volume? Check!
  • Cut-off leggings? Check!
  • Chipped nail varnish? Check!
  • Molten dark lipstick? Check!
  • Devil red sunglasses? Check!
  • Zero eff's given? Total check!

Skirt: Simply Be
Crop Top: ASOS
Shrug: eBay
Leggings: South (via Very)
Bag: ASOS^
Boots: Boohoo^
I do love colour and lots of pattern, but I also love to channel my inner goth - and this outfit is a great example of doing goth with patterns. I LOVE this skirt by Simply Be! It may have something to do with polka dots (hehe) and it may also have something to do with the gorgeous tulle layer, but this skirt is so dreamy. It's definitely a dresser skirt, but I wanted an edgy look and something to counteract the sunshine. I paired it with a simple crop top (that I had to amateurishly scoop under my ample breasts because being 5' 1" does not allow much "crop"), cardigan, leggings (that I cut to mid calf), ankle boots, and finished off with a molten dark lipstick. I felt like a Goth princess all day.

Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
Lipstick: Sleek Makeup (Shade: Cherry)

Oh yeah, I'm definitely a rebel. A rebel with a cause, to show that us plus size women can wear anything we want and look all kinds of awesome while doing so!
There's only one way to end this post. I end with a piece of fabulous street art me and my lovely friend visited on this very day. The ultimate fashion rebel, the wonder that is, Bowie:

'til next time.

Love and hugs,


  1. You look stunning. So in love with this outfit and you rock it. Lovely. X x

    1. Aww, thanks so much Mookie! Another step in the right direction of stepping out of my comfort zone. I felt really happy all day wearing this :) xx

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
