Colour in Gloom

Just because the sun is shrouded with clouds now that we're in the bliss of Autumn, it doesn't mean your wardrobe has to follow suit. I'm a big fan of colours throughout the year, but particularly when it's gloomy, as for me, it just puts a little bounce in my step.

I bought this dress by Simply Be a good while ago, but as ever, my wardrobes are littered with unworn clothes like this. It was, however the perfect dress to wear at a recent blogger event:
Dress: Simply Be^
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Leggings: New Look
Belt: Dorothy Perkins^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
The dress is scuba and I was quite unsure trying it due to how split the opinion was amongst my fellow bloggers, but I thought "There's no harm in giving it a go" and tried it on as soon as it arrived. I must say, I actually quite like it! I rarely wear dresses with lots of structure so it was a nice change and I also loved how it held me in the middle, and strictly scooped out at the bottom. I think the mix of colours really helped as I'm not sure I would like it as much in a block colour, but it worked well with this dress.
I also don't wear pink a lot, but when I do I'm always surprised by how good it goes with my skin tone, and with the black cardigan and leggings this makes a perfect autumnal outfit.

So don't put your colour palette away just because the sun's hiding. Colour is awesome at any time of year!

'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

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
