Stranger In The Night

Hello!

No, I didn't go into early retirement, haha. You know when you get to a point where life just gets ahead of you and you just loose track? Well that has been me for the last few weeks, but I'm back with the most fabulous number.
 Dress: Voodoo Vixen
Shrug: eBay
Tights: Boots
Flats: Dorothy Perkins^
Do you remember this post way back when? Well in said post I mentioned I had bought two Voodoo Vixen dresses - this is the second. I've worn this dress so much recently and you can see why: lots of colour, a great cut and length, and perfect to dress down into a Spring (yes, it's still Spring!) sandal and shade wearing outfit. On this occasion I decided to dress it up a little with a shrug and some cut peep-toe flats. I don't know why people are under the impression you can't wear tights with peep-toe shoes; I personally love it and think the look works really well with the dress. I love the little bows at the end and the touch of gold breaks up the black of the tights and shoes. 
The thing that's great about Voodoo Vixen is that their dresses (or at least the two that I have) are so easy to wear and breathable. This one in particular has a lovely stretch to it  and as the days get warmer, feeling like I can easily manoeuvre myself around London amongst the heat and the people, is an absolute must. The pattern of the dress is bright and wonderfully colourful (despite the black base), I adore the red piping along the bust, and the red buttons down the middle are a cute finishing touch. 

Voodoo Vixen are slowly expanding their plus size range and that's wonderful news for us vintage loving gals. I'll definitely be hoping to add to my collection soon! 

'til next time.


Love and hugs,

Isha xxx

  2. Such a lovely dress! Looks great on you. I wish I could wear peep toe shoes but they squash my toes so badly :-/ Still, I always try on ones I like in the hope they'll be the exception to the rule...x

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

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

When a photo shoot is about more than just the pictures

There have been a few things that have made the last year and a bit, difficult. I have a life mantra: keep the legs pumping. This has been my life philosophy for as long as I can remember and it’s what has kept my head above water at the worst times. I am well aware that anything I might be going through is nothing in comparison to some others, so I have always tried to suppress whatever has been going on, believing that my “trivialities” were not worth worrying about or bugging other people with. It is only until very recently I have actually realised that my feelings are worthy of acknowledgment, that I have every right to be upset about things, and I was doing myself more damage by pretending I was ok when I wasn’t. I have Sian and a cluster of other wonderful friends to thank for this epiphany. They have no idea (until now, I guess) what their encouragement for me to feel what I was feeling and not feeling guilty about it, was ok, means – I’m so grateful to them fo
