Pulp Fiction Switch-Up


I have a thing for white dresses, but being total klutz makes me fearful to wear it. I have four white dresses and this is the latest via a sale steal from ASOS: 


Dress: ASOS^
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Leggings: South (via Very)
Peep-toe Sandals: Primark^
I wore this to the Pulp Fiction Geek-Out, at The Prince Charles Cinema (i.e my second home) and everyone was encouraged to dress up for the screening. It would have been classic of course to go with a black suit and crisp white shirt, but as you know, I'm not a fan of black as the main colour of an outfit, so I decided to switch it up with a white dress and black accessories. I love the sheer panel along the bottom as it adds a lovely detail to an otherwise plain dress, and black and white is a great combo to dress up or down. White is also another "fat girls shouldn't wear..." item, but as you can see, I didn't have a care in the world:
The night was so fun as it always is at The PCC, and dancing in our seats to the soundtrack while drinking Pimms was nothing short of a perfect night in homage to a cult-classic film. 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

  1. You look fantastic! I am equally clumsy so completely afraid to wear white-but I love the chic mix of black and white in your look I'm thinking of including something small and white and going from there.

    1. Thanks so much Jodie. White is such a great colour and if you're clumsy like me it's definitely worth trying smaller pieces to get a classic look. :)

  2. I hate that white is demed as a color Fat girls should not wear. I myself usely stay away from white as I usely get everything all over it . Not normally a messy person I believe it's the white curse.

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
