Berry Navabi

A little while ago I got an exciting email from Navabi. It was an email announcing they would soon be releasing their Autumn/ Winter collection and wondered if I'd like to attend an event to mark the occasion. I of course jumped at the chance and had a wonderful and fun night with the Navabi team and my fellow bloggers - you can read more about the event via Navabi's blog. 

The night itself was a pleasure, but the icing on the cake was when they told those in attendance that we could pick any item from their new collection. We were, as you can imagine, super excited to run to the rails they had, to pick a gifted piece. The trouble was there was so much to pick from as the collection was just stunning! There was an array of coats which a lot of my fellow bloggers went for to welcome the colder months, but I'm a fancy dress kinda girl so when I saw this gem in Berry there really wasn't much else to think about. 
Dress: Navabi^
Leggings: New Look
Belt: Dorothy Perkins*
Shoes: Simply Be*
Now, the beaming smile on my face is for two main reasons. One for how much I felt utterly comfortable in the dress, but also because the dress has pockets! The holy grail for all us dress loving babes is finding a dress with a little bit of functionality, and pockets are so very rare in dresses and skirts and I can't think why. The pockets on this beauty are designed so well and scoop in an almost U shape so they're deep but not bulky; they also add a little extra to the dress and makes your silhouette even more defined - I love that! The dress is made from micro fine stretch jersey, so is incredibly comfortable and versatile. I've worn this twice now and have felt great all day in it. The fabric is breathable and flexible, and I love the drape detail of the neckline.
I wanted to break up the block colour so added a black and gold belt. I love the dress as it is but think the belt is a really good addition to complete the outfit. 

I will be getting full use of this dress and will definitely be wearing it all year round.


'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
