Blue & White, Alright

I wore this outfit a few Saturday's ago for a trip to Borough Market. 

What's so great about this dress is that it looks like two separate pieces. The top half is almost designed as a crop top with a slight overhang over the skirt, but it's actually one piece with the two parts connected with a cotton underlay. Such a cleaver design and perfect for a Spring afternoon in the sun. 
 Dress: Dorothy Perkins^
Cardigan: H&M
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: Next^
Bag: George at ASDA*
I love the casual simplicity of this outfit, but the embroidery along the bottom panels bring a touch of something fancy. Dorothy Perkins are one of the first places I go when I want a cute dress that's light and comfortable, and this one doesn't disappoint. The dress is 100% Cotton and incredibly airy so I had no trouble weaving my way through the hustle and bustle of a food market, particularly over the weekend. 

I decided to wear my cute plimsole thingys from Next and I'm trying to get as much wear out of them because they are falling apart after years of me stomping around the city in them. It's a shame as they're my favourite trainer-esk shoes but since I bought them way back when I was at uni, I'd say they've served me pretty well. The bag was a gift from George at ASDA after I attended one of their events. I love the colour, the size is fab and I know I'll get a lot of use out of it in the coming months. 

I don't do casual often but it is fun to switch it up occasionally. 

'til next time.

Love and hugs,
Isha xxx

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
