Geisha Zombies Invade Covent Garden


This is the second instalment of my friends visiting the UK shores. If you saw my last post about this, I had been running around London enjoying the company of some dear friends, and this occasion we headed to Covent Garden. Myself and Ro were joined by our gorgeous friend, Nads, and we went for lunch at a super nice restaurant called Wild Mushroom. I don't have any picture of the food but I do have a picture of my Princess Jasmine beauties:
 Too much gorgeousness!

I wanted to wear something dressy but fun so turned to my collection of swing dresses. I'm so in love with this zombie, geisha print and also have the white version. Hell Bunny are quickly becoming one of my go-to places for 40s/50s goodness and this dress is great for any occasion:
 Dress: Hell Bunny (via Soho's Clothing)^
Cardigan: Collectif
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: Primark
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market

I know there are those who don't like the halter neck style but the great thing about this dress is the shirred back; the shirred back means the halter isn't so rigid and that's great news when you have a hearty bosom like myself because the weight can really hurt the back of your neck. Thankfully, and again, because of the shirred back, I didn't have a problem at all which is a lifesaver when running around all day.

After lunch we just walked around enjoying the weather and were later joined by a few more of our friends before finishing the day off with dessert. It was such a lovely day with lots of catching up with some of my best friends.


'til next time!


Love and hugs,

    1. Hi Kitty :) I love the dress too and I'm glad I got the white one too (which is my favourite one). Hopefully they bring it back for Halloween. x

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
