I hope it hadn't escaped your notice that for the past week I have been running a giveaway with fab plus size brand Pink Clove. The competition closed at midnight on Sunday night and I am delighted to announce that the winner is...
If that's you, please check your emails as I have sent you a message.
For some time now, I have been reading posts by other bloggers about ASOS and ASOS Curve. Many a lady has looked terrific in their clothing but I had never tried them for myself because I was unsure about sizing. However, I recently decided to take the plunge and placed an order for a number of ASOS dresses, including the ASOS Curve Exclusive Bodycon Dress In Graphic Print (originally £28.00; now £19.50):
I have got a very exciting offer for you today - a giveaway from new plus size fashion brand Pink Clove!
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a bloggers' event a few weeks ago where we were shown the inaugural Pink Clove collection and I am pleased to be able to tell you how impressed I was with it. Their items are available in sizes 16-32 and cover a wide range of styles, tastes and occasions.
Over the past couple of weeks here in the UK the weather has taken a turn for the worse and it's been feeling a lot cooler. I've been pulling out my old favourites from my wardrobe to help keep me warm but it's great to have a few new options, too. I am over the moon that the lovely team at BiuBiu sent me a few items to try a while back. Today I am reviewing the Bombay Dress.
The prospect of bra fitting can fill many a woman with fear - with so many fitting methods available on the internet it's hard to know who is right and who is wrong. The fact of the matter is that very few methods are completely wrong and it may take you a few attempts to find the system that works best for you. In this post, I will talk through my personally preferred way of fitting and will also reference some other sources of information that you may find useful.
Earlier this year, I attended the inaugural British Plus Size Fashion Weekend. During the main event on the Saturday, I got the opportunity to speak with a number of plus size fashion brands from all over the world. One of the brands who were particularly friendly and easy to talk to were Lucabella, who had come all the way from New Zealand in order to attend the event. To me, that demonstrates their commitment to working with plus size women to produce clothing that works for them and, having spoken to the team, I can confirm their passion to make a success of their brand.
Some months ago I'd heard from friends about a dress from Bravissimo's clothing arm, Pepperberry, that worked for almost all curvy women: the Red Corsage Dress.
In theory, it looked perfect for me. A wrap-over bust area, a cinched, ruched waist, and a tulip-shaped skirt - all things that would be on my 'dream dress design' wishlist. Surely it would match up to my high hopes...?
Before midi skirts became all the rage, I was looking for a black pencil skirt that I could wear with blouses and tops. You know the sort of thing - something that skims curves and is stylish and elegant. I discovered the F&F Clothing at Tesco Black Ponte Pencil Skirt - an absolute steal at only £10.
Last month, I was approached by Fashion World to take part in a fabulous bloggers' challenge. We were asked to pair their fantastic new Legroom 'Wear Two Ways' Boots with some jeans and to show how the boots work with different outfits. The fab Legroom Wear Two Ways Boots are absolutely ingenious. They look like regular knee high boots - and pretty fab ones at that as they feature an elasticated back panel to allow for wider calves (like mine!) - but with a quick unzip and unbuckle at the ankle they are converted to on-trend ankle boots!
You may have read my recent review of the Collectif Dolores Wiggle Jersey Vintage Crepe Dress 16/XL. In that post I mentioned that I had previously tried the Dolores wiggle dress made from regular material, as opposed to the crepe used on that one. I hadn't got around to reviewing it...until now! Earlier in the year I made the most of one of Collectif's amazing special offers and ordered the Collectif Wiggle Rose Print Dress.
