Always a Vintage Girl: Review of the Lindy Bop Blue Crane Print Dress

 Looking back at my last few posts it looks like I've been on a bit of a vintage hiatus of late! But never fear, I am back with a proper vintage beauty from Lindy Bop. I have reviewed Lana dresses before, and it is one of my favourite vintage shapes. I wore this to the Curve Fashion Festival in September and the response to the picture I posted on Instagram was inspiring, so I thought it was high time I reviewed this bird print beauty.

Woman In Black: Melissa McCarthy Separates At Evans

The plus size world was abuzz when Melissa McCarthy released her first clothing range earlier this year. In the UK it is sold exclusively by Evans and I was fortunate enough to get to give a couple of pieces a try. I decided to go with classic black in these beautifully made separates.

Big, Bold Blossoms: Closet Textured Jersey Print Dress From Simply Be

Winter is coming! There is a nip in the air, and instead of worrying how I am going to stay cool enough I am starting to add layers and look longingly at anything with a sleeve. I love Autumn and Winter fashion, but I find so often that there is a dearth of colour. And then there is this Closet dress from Simply Be... Longish sleeves, heavier fabric but a fabulous floral riot of colour. Get in my wardrobe!

Arrrrr Matey: Review of the PSL Boutique Vixen Pirate Costume

I love Halloween! What's not to love? Spooky decorations, carved pumpkins, themed sweets, and fancy dress! I love a bit of fancy dress at the best of times, but how exciting to have a day dedicated to becoming someone else for a while. It's all a bit hedonistic and dark. Now, I love a bit of pirate action - the accessories are fabulous - loads of jewelery, big earrings, head scarves; all the men obviously look like Johnny Depp with eyeliner yum; lady pirates are fierce; and I am a fan of rum. So when Plus Size Lingerie Boutique asked me if I wanted to review something for Halloween I had to go with this Pirate look.

Botanical Boobs: Breeze Longline Bra From Cleo By Panache

A couple of months ago I had a somewhat rude awakening when I realised that I was in fact wearing the completely wrong bra size! In afternoon I went from a 40C to a 38F. Since I have been restocking my lingerie drawer with well fitting prettiness, so I was thrilled when the lovely team at Panache sent me this botanical beauty from their Cleo range.

Classic Chic: French Brand Balsamik Lands on British Shores

When a little email dropped into my inbox about the arrival of Balsamik on UK shores I was thrilled. The French brand starts at a size 10, and with many of its pieces running up to a size 30 and 32, they are all about inclusivity.
