Blue and White Stripe Delight


There is an awful lot of tosh us plus size ladies have to put up with, but one of my greatest banes is the list of things we're constantly told we shouldn't wear. I will never understand others need to try and police how we dress our bodies, so I was more than happy to put together an outfit that checks off so many from the "do not wear..." list:

Dress: ASOS (Limited sizes available)
Cardigan: H&M (Grey currently not available online, but should be in store)
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins^
Bag: Gifted
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market



























Horizontal stripes? Check


Exposing the belly? Check
Light colours? Check 
Happy and confident? Check!!!!

I love this outfit and it was inspired by Girl with Curves who recently blogged in this dress herself. I fell in love with the colours and the cut-out along the belly, and screams of an outfit for jumping in a rowing boat with a big hat and a glass of something fizzy. Although I didn't have the boat, hat or bubbly, I did have a lovely afternoon with my friend, Hanna. The sun was out and there was a complimentary breeze that assisted in making the dress of dreams look even more dreamy. 

The bag was a gift from Dani and I just had to finish the outfit off with this red bowed wonder. I felt so happy in this outfit and after lunch with Hanna, I headed to central London for dinner with my dear friend, Jags. I always post pictures of my meals on Instagram and I just had to share my dinner, which was absolutely delicious:

A glorious outfit and a day spent with great friends - not a bad day I'd say. :)

'til next time! 


Love and hugs,

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
