Collectif Dietrich Check Swing Trench Coat 18

As the weather turned cooler last autumn, my thoughts turned to outerwear. I usually wear my beloved Ben De Lisi raincoat when I feel I need a light extra layer, and of course I have my Collectif Ashley coats for days when it is very chilly. However, I didn't have anything for those 'in between' days when a light mac is not enough but the weather is not cold enough for a heavy duty winter coat.

Thank goodness for Collectif - they released their gorgeous Dietrich swing trench coat in a thicker fabric for exactly this sort of weather.

Urkye Black Blazer Kameleon W Czerni 40 oo/ooo

Back in November I placed an order with Polish bust-friendly clothing brand Urkye. I picked up some of their Skołowana Bakłażanowa dresses in smaller sizes (as I found the 40 oo/ooo too big (review here)) and a post about these dresses will come soon. I also bought one of their blazers; namely the Kameleon W Czerni (199 PLN, sizes 34-44 o/oo and oo/ooo (size guide here)):

Pink Clove Geo Print Wrap Dress 16 and Blue Wrap Dress 18

Late last year I placed an order with plus size fashion brand Pink Clove. Some of the items were a hit and some were a miss for me, and today I am going to show you what a difference one size up or down can make. 

The two dresses in question are the Pink Clove Geo Print Wrap Dress (was £18.00, now just £10.00; UK sizes 16-32) and the Pink Clove Blue Wrap Dress (was £18.00, now just £10.80; UK sizes 16-32).

Ewa Michalak S Grace Bra 32KK/70KK

Polish bra designer Ewa Michalak makes a range of bras in different cuts and styles. There's pretty much something for everyone and with some of the newer releases there seems to be something for every occasion.

A few months ago came the introduction of the 'Grace' collection; lingerie that was ideal for bridal wear.

Excite Clothing Aztec Printed Short Sleeve Midi Dress 18

Back in the summer last year I was given a dress by the wonderful Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust. She had been sent some dresses by Excite Clothing and somehow she had ended up with two that were the same, so she very kindly passed the spare one on to me.

It was the 'Aztec' version of the Excite Clothing Printed Short Sleeve Midi Dress (just £12.99, UK sizes 16-28):

BiuBiu Venice Top Teal 40 BB/BBB

Just before Christmas 2013 I placed an order with Polish bust-friendly brand BiuBiu. As well as ordering dresses, I also went for a few tops after seeing how wonderfully well they have worked for other bloggers such as Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, A Sophisticated Pair and Voluptuously Thin.

The first top I tried on from my order was the BiuBiu Venice Top in Teal (£12.83).

George at Asda Rose Print Midi Dress 14

A few weeks before Christmas I was in my local Asda Living store and whilst in the queue to pay for my G21 Animal Print Bodycon Dress my attention was drawn towards the changing rooms and this lovely dress caught my eye as it hung on the rail of try-ons. It was the George at Asda Rose Print Midi Dress (£10, UK sizes 8-20):

BiuBiu Monaco Dress 42 BB/BBB

Late last year, Polish bust friendly brand BiuBiu released some new items. There were dresses, tops, and even coats amongst the offerings. I resisted for a while but as Christmas drew closer I could no longer hold back and ended up placing an order myself. Over the next few weeks I will share these items with you; today I am going to start with the BiuBiu Monaco Dress (£34.57, sizes 34-46 B/BB and BB/BBB).

Bravissimo Lola Luxe Basque Black/Teal 32K and Briefs XL

I am always on the look-out for lingerie other than bras and knickers. In the J+ cup size range there are sadly very few options available so when something comes up I am always incredibly keen to give it a try.

A few months ago a friend of mine sold me her nearly new Bravissimo Lola Luxe Basque in Black/Teal (sells new for £50.00 in sizes 28 DD-J and 30-38 DD-K) with brand new matching briefs and thong. I had checked the item on the Bravissimo website and had fallen head over heels in love with its design and colours:
