A Splash of Colour

It's always a good sign when brands branch out and create a plus size line, but it really can go one of two ways. Thankfully, Missguided have gone the right way with their very first plus size collection from last year which had many plus size babes, including me, with a extensive list of items in their virtual shopping bag. I ordered this fab two-piece. 

Crop Top: Missguided^
Skirt: Missguided
Boots: Simply Be^

Now, the problem with being pixie height is that crop tops are very rarely that. I don't have a long body and thus, crop tops are often mid torso on me. This was the case with Missguided's crop top but I didn't let that deter me as I still think the look works with me tucking the top into the skirt. It gives the illusion of a dress and still looks great with the chunky boots I chose to finish the look off with. Missguided's sizing is very generous and I could have easily sized downed, particularly with the skirt, and being 95% Polyester make both items very stretchy and accommodating. 

I love the literal splashes of colour on this two-piece, and the colours work so well with my skin tone and gives a really good balance. I've worn these pieces in various versions as single items which goes to show that despite the array of colours, they still work incredibly well on their own. I love that the top has sleeves long enough not to need a cardigan and with it being spring, this will look great with so many of my bright and colourful skirts. 

It's clear that Missguided are on the right track and creating plus size collections that are fashion forward, affordable and versatile. Long may it continue. 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

  1. I always forget about places like Missguided. The colours look amazing on you!

    1. I know what you mean. There is slowly but surely an increase of brands expanding to plus size items. I really love the Missguided range and there are a few items on sale now. :) x

  2. I love this on you, you're right the colours are so great and I like that they can be picked out and matched with other items. Very versatile. I actually like the illusion of a dress rather than a 2 piece,but then I'm not much of a crop top fan.

    1. Thank you! I love the colours too and these items are so great for any time of the years with mixing in other things. I think the skirt will get a lot of use as the temperature heats up. :) x

  3. Looks fantastic on you! The colours are great for transitioning and love the length of the skirt!

    1. Thank you! Yes, the skirt is a gem and Missguided really did well with their first plus size collection. I hope there is another one on the pipeline soon. :) xx

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

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
