White Birds Fly Across A Red Sky


Hi lovelies!

I recently caught up with a friend and we decided to head to Carnaby Street. We headed to a new American-style restaurant, Stax. The food was great, as was the service and I'd definitely recommend it. We then did a bit of shopping to round everything off. It was such a lovely evening.

I wanted to wear something nice, but also something that would look cool with boots due to the rain. I turned to my ever trusted Lady V London. This dress was actually going to be my Christmas Day dress last year, but I went for a different one in the end. Lady V are great for making dresses that can be dressed up or down, which is why I have so many! I paired the below dress with my standard ankle boots, a fab satchel I bought at a blogger sale, and my new Collectif cardigan.
Dress: Lady Vintage London^
Cardigan: Collectif
Satchel: Blogger Sale
Leggings: South (via Very)
Boots: Boohoo^
I love the bird theme of this outfit. The white birds against the red base really soften the look and I love the slight Asian feel of the dress. Swing dresses are also so comfortable and usually have a slight stretch, which is great when heading off to stuff your face! The cardigan is a new purchase from a recent Collectif sample sale. I adore the Swallows on either side and on my way to dinner I had a few people ask me where I got it from - a total winner!
Such a gorgeous outfit, and definitely one of my favourites this year. But then, having an outfit which is completely vintage inspired is likely to get my vote ;)

'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

Like Royalty

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

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading
