Chiffon in Spring

Hi folks!

So a little while ago, the fab team over at Navabi asked if I wanted to blog about an item from their website. I didn't hesitate in saying yes, and immediately started my search for an item. I knew that Spring/Summer was on its way, so wanted something to reflect that time of year; I saw this dress and unashamedly cooed:
Dress: House of Magpie for Navabi^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins*
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
This Pearl Embroidered Chiffon Dress is simply a dream. I love the "nude" colour against my skin tone, and being one who doesn't tend to wear A-line that often, I loved how the dress fit. Despite the embroidery being delicately stitched, I had no problem getting in and out of it without having a shower of pearls carpeting the floor. Chiffon feels so luxurious against the skin; it's light, airy and has such a feminine, grecian-goddess feel to it. The bonus factor is the underlay as it meant I didn't have to go out hunting for a slip to go underneath before I could wear it.

I usually wear a cardigan or shrug when I'm donning my clothes, but the sleeves are three quarter-length, sheer and uber floaty, so fit the upper arms perfectly. The dress hits me just below the knee (I'm a pixie 5'1") so will be slightly shorter for those taller than me, and I needed nothing more than a cute and comfy pair of gold flats before I was ready to hit to town.
I felt so great in this and will be begging people to invite me out for cocktails under the sun so I can wear this as many times as I can!

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
Isha xxx

  2. My choice of colouring is warm, clear and light which I always select from Stylewe. And also I tend to like chiffon too.

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
