Scots To Have It


During my very first trip to Nottingham (which I'll be blogging about soon), myself and Charlotte headed into Primark to see if there were any goodies we could nab. This dress and a skirt you'll see on the blog soon, we snapped up by me as soon as I laid eyes on them. 

I don't usually do smock dresses as being a vintage bunny means I like structure and definition, but this tartan number is so great for this time of year. It's still light enough for the warmer Autumnal days, but also versatile enough to throw on chunky boots and a coat for when there's a chill in the air. As you'll see with the pictures below, it was a gorgeous sunny day so I needed nothing other than a pair of leggings and my new favourite heeled boots:
 Dress: Primark
Leggings: South (via Very)
Boots: Next
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
I love the traditional tartan colours as they fit so well with the current season. I think different Primarks hold different stock as I definitely didn't see this in any London stores at the time of buying this gem. I kind of love having a dress few people will have, particularly from a brand such as Primark, but I love this smock dress, it's a great length and although not my usual style, I felt super comfortable and confident in it. 
These pictures were taken a while ago before dinner with my dear friend, Shel, and we headed to GBK for all the burger goodness. It was lovely to catch up with Shel and as always, she did a great job taking my pictures. 


'til next time!


Love and hugs,

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
