Floral Showers

Hello lovely folk!

It has been an absolute age since I last blogged an outfit. Who cares about book reviews and pictures of London, right?! Well, I do, but I get your point. Life has been beyond hectic in recent months so blogging hasn't really been at the forefront of my mind. I'm also in a little bit of a style funk (which I may do a separate post about) so there hasn't been a lot speaking to me of late - whether it be from my wardrobes or online.

The dress I'm blogging about today has been my first purchase in a really long time, and I hope you can see why. It's my new favourite dress.

I've blogged about Voodoo Vixen a couple of times, but this is by far my favourite design. I love the black checked base with the bright and vibrant floral designs, and although it's a typical 50's inspired silhouette, it looks and feels incredibly modern. The dress also has a slip which I'm not usually a fan of as I've found in the past the slip moves around far too much, but having the slip attached at the waist makes it so much easier to move around without fear of a malfunction. It's quite a structured fit which I really like and the dress doesn't loose it's shape as a result.
Dress: Voodoo Vixen for Simply Be
Cardigan: H&M
Shoes: Simply Be^
I wore this for the first time at my friend's engagement drinks and I received a lot of compliments on the night as I swooshed around the bar. I felt and feel so confident in it and couldn't have wished for a better purchase after my style slump. I would live in this dress if I could, honestly.

'til next time!


Love and hugs,
Isha xxx

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

Like Royalty

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
