Rose Peaks from beneath Winter Snow

Hi guys!

Granted, there isn't any snow in London, but I really like the title, so indulge me. These photos were taken a little while ago but I loved them so much, there wasn't any doubt that they'd make it to the blog eventually. 

I've always been a fan of Hellbunny and already had a few of their dresses before falling in love with this one. I can't quite put my finger on when I first saw it, whether it was on a blog or IG, but I knew I had to have it, particularly when I saw that Simply Be were selling it. As soon as I put it on I knew that I'd wear it to death. 
Dress: Hellbunny (via Simply Be)
Cardigan: H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock online)
Leggings: South (via Very)^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
I love a floral print, but rather oddly, I don't have many rose print dresses at all! I'm not sure how this mishap happened, but this dress is a dream addition to my Hellbunny collection. The dress is halter so I'd likely try to find a strapless bra or a bra with snazzy traps, to wear in the warmer months. I know halter isn't for everyone, but I personally don't find them uncomfortable or unsupportive, and I actually like that it's a rare contrast to the style of dresses I usually wear. The one continuous feature for me and this dress is that it has a vintage 50's-style shape and would look perfect with a petticoat underneath for self indulgent twirling. 

Another thing I love about this dress is the shirred back. I think every dress I have by Hellbunny has a shirred back, so it's obviously something they feel is important for their customers, particularly with a halter dress - being comfortable is key and that's exactly how I feel when I wear one of their dresses. The dress also has a well concealed zip at the back, so you have the option to wiggle into it or zip up and go at your leisure. 

























I'm going to have so much fun switching this look up when it gets hotter - roll on spring! 

'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
