Pick A Pocket In Blue

Another vintage number for you guys and this one is utterly lovely. I've found a new haunt to shop for vintage goodies and best of all, they're all so cheap! It's so hard nowadays to find genuine vintage items for prices of old so I was super happy when I found this dress. I always try to find the origins of a vintage item but it was difficult with this one, late 80s was the closest I could get. It's also a good indication with elastic as that didn't really come to the forefront of dress fashion until 70s/80s, so I'm pretty confident with that date. 
Dress: Vintage
Tights: Boots
Shoes: Simply Be
I absolutely adore the blue. Royal blue is my favourite colour and this is a little darker with more sheen. Blue really is becoming quite prominent in my wardrobe and I'm always surprised at how well it goes against my skin tone. The features of the dress are great too. The buttons are awesomely bulky, the flowers are made of rich colours, and as ever, I was thrilled to find another vintage dress with an elasticated waist. The gem of all gems though are the pockets! What I wouldn't give to have more pockets on dresses. The print and length makes this dress great for this time of year and I can't wait to ditch my tights for a bare-legged, sunshine spring look with sandals and shades.....speaking of sandals, head to Primark if you're looking for fab, cheap sandals. I bought a few pairs a couple of days ago during my lunch break and I aim to buy a few more come payday! 

'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
