Bronze Sparkle


I bought this dress way back when at the beginning of Summer, but because my wardrobe is forever overflowing, I never got an opportunity to wear it until now. I wore this gem for another fun filled day in Nottingham with my dear friend, Char. If you saw my last post about my first visit, you'll know that I absolutely fell in love with the city and simply couldn't wait to get back, so I jumped at the chance to head down there again a mere few weeks later. 

We had food at Frankie and Benny’s (uh-mazing!) and then just pottered around, diving into as many new nooks and crannies as we could find. I wanted something a little dressy but also with a mix of casual as I knew we’d be walking around the city.
Dress: Marks and Spencer^
Lace Cardigan: Marks and Spencer^
Shrug (worn underneath): eBay
Sneakers: New Look
How much of a beaut is this dress?! The delicate flower print with gorgeous pleats on the skirt are so swoon worthy, and it's so floaty which really worked with the gentle Autumn breeze. This lace cardigan is beautiful and the detail is stunning. I intended just to wear the lace cardigan on its own, but as soon as I stepped outside my front door, the cold breeze hit me so I threw on a white shrug to wear underneath. I think it works really well and I practically glided through the streets of Nottingham, as I felt utterly ethereal. 
You don't normally see me in sneakers but these were too cute to pass up and they go so well with the colours in the dress. The bronze sparkles are a lovely touch and the sneakers themselves are the most comfortable - perfect for a day full of walking.
Another great day with Charlotte and I’m already pondering what on earth I’m going to wear for my next trip!

‘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
