EVERYDAY Is Special - Scattered Flowers


Hello lovelies!

So if you saw my last post, you'd have seen that I made the decision to wear clothes that had been floundering in my wardrobe due to deciding I needed to wear them somewhere special. It's such a silly notion to have as it of course means the gorgeous items bought, never see daylight!

This is the second dress of this nature and this beauty has been in my wardrobe for the longest time. You would have seen many of my fellow bloggers killing this dress in their own styles, so now it's my turn.
Dress: Scarlett & Jo for Evans^
Shoes: Primark
Clutch: Gifted
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
The Scarlett & Jo 'Black 2 in 1 Floral Prom Dress' for Evans is a stunner. You all know I love print and you also know how much I love volume, and this dress has both! There is a Spring/Summer flower print also, but this darker print is my favourite. The tulle underneath gives fairytale volume with a vintage feel, and I couldn't help but feel super glam in it. The wide width elasticated waist means that it hugs you in the right place, but the elastic itself isn't restrictive at all and on a summers day, restriction is not on the menu! I paired it with my new favourite gold shoes (I really wish I had bought more than one pair!), and a fab pop of colour courtesy of this clutch I got from an event goodie bag.
Nail Varnish: Sleek MakeUp Shade: Texas Red

The top half is nice and stretchy, and felt really airy despite being black. The sleeves are the perfect length for someone (like me) who doesn't like their upper arm area, which means wearing a cardigan is a mute point.
What a great dress and shame on me for hiding it away for so long!


'til next time!

Love and hugs,
Isha

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
