Oh So Creamy

There are so many ridiculous "rules" us plus size ladies are told. We can't wear this and we can't wear that, but guess what? We can wear whatever we like! Amongst those farcical "rules" is the caution of wearing white or cream. It's true, they are not forgiving shades and will show everything you've got and more, but there's nothing wrong with that. The only thing that matters is how you feel in the outfit you've got on, and I felt great in this cream and black beaut.
Dress: Lovedrobe (via Simply Be)^
Belt: Dorothy Perkins^
Leggings: South (via Very)
Necklace: Tatty Devine^
Boots: Dorothy Perkins^
These pictures were taken on a not so glorious day, but the dress is so perfect for spring. Dark colours attract the sun and as someone who hates to feel overheated, having as many lighter shade items as I can get, is a must. I also find that lighter shades work so well on those with a darker complexion and my skin tone seems to magically balance itself out when I'm wearing brighter colours - a win on all fronts. 
Lace can be tricky to work with, but I think the double panel at the bottom and on the cuff of the sleeves finish off this dress beautifully and instantly makes it a dress that can be worn for almost any occasion. Because of the weather, I teamed the dress with my favourite bulky ankle boots and my gorgeous mermaid necklace from Tatty Devine. For warmer temperatures I will be swapping my boots for cute flat sandals or kitten heels for a dressier look, and with a cute dark tone lipstick I really will be ready for dinner with friends or a trip to the museum. 

Can't wear cream? I beg to differ.

'til next time.

Love and hugs,

Don't forget you an sponsor me for my run for Breast Cancer Care. Just head here

  1. I love this dress and it looks gorgeous on you x

  2. You look awesome- who ever says fat girls shouldn't wear cream needs a stab in the eye. Unfortunately I really can't- I'm so clumsy I always end up with food or makeup down myself- it's best I stick to patterns and dark colours 😜 they're easier to hide crumbs ha ha ha. I wish I was classy!!

    1. Haha, I'm clumsy too and was very careful not to spill anything before I took these pictures. I love the dress and can't wait to wear it when it gets warmer. :)

  3. You look amazing! Also - if we're not supposed to wear white or cream then my whole wardrobe is wrong ... oops, no one told me that 'rule'. ....

    1. Indeed Charli! The rules are so ridiculous and I fully intend on wearing any and every colour I want. :) X

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
