Winter Lace

Hello you lovely lot! I hope you're all well and the new year is treating you good so far.

This outfit is way overdue due to the shorter daylight, but I finally managed to take a few pictures of this gorgeous dress during one of my lunch breaks. Last year, the lovely folk at Navabi got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review something from their site. I of course jumped at the chance and proceeded to find difficulty narrowing my lust list down. In the end I went for this stunning lace, fitted mini dress.
 Dress: Navabi^*
Cardigan: H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock)
Leggings: South (via Very)^
Scarf: Dorothy Perkins^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
I wore this for an average day at the office, but as you can see, it's a hot little number and would not look out of place at a party or fancy dinner - just swap the leggings for tights, the flats for some cute heels, and leave the cardigan at home for and sexy, stylish evening outfit. And that's what I love about this dress, it can be worn for most occasions. I love garments which are versatile; I don't like buying too many items that are only wearable in certain circumstances.

As you know, I'm not a fan of black, on black, on black, on black, so if I do find a dress I love, it has to have a little extra to it; that's why I love the lace detail on the dress, particularly on the neckline as it breaks the block of black up nicely while still staying true to style. I try to avoid dresses with a high neck, as for me, it makes me look even more dinky than I already am, but again, the lace without the underlay, makes it work. The length is perfect for my height and the fit is truly great. I often find fitted dresses are really ill-fitting if you have a few lumps and bumps, but the cut is just right and accommodates my tummy and butt with ease.
Throwing this one in as although it's a candid pic, it has me smiling which I know is rare on my blog :)

I teamed the dress with my favourite cardigan (I just love the colour!) and a newish pair of flats I found while treading water after work one evening. Oh, and I threw in the scarf because it's flipping winter, but also because it goes so well with the cardigan. A winter warmer outfit with a bit of sass. Thanks Navabi!

'til next time crazy cats!


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

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
