Modern Floral: Floral Prom Dress from Simply Be

Recently the lovely folk at Simply Be sent me along some pieces from their Spring releases to try. I am shopping more and more at Simply Be. Their range just gets more exciting and diverse season on season, and there is so much from them on my wishlist right now. Right at the top was this gorgeous, vintage inspired dress.

Meeting Beth: Beth Ditto's SS16 Collection is Here!

I arrived to meet Beth a little frazzled. I'd gotten lost on my way to the personal shopping suite, and so had pretty much taken a full tour of Selfridges at this point. A good reminder that department stores of this nature actually stock very little in my size.

So, You Wanna Start a Blog? Welcome to the Beginner's Guide

So you want to write a blog! You've got an idea that's been bouncing around in your head for a little while, and you're ready. Well you lucky little fish, what perfect timing, because here I have just written a pretty full on post all about what I think you need to know to start blogging your little ass off! This post is based entirely in my own experience, both as a fledgling blogger (I've been going for a year, and what a year it's been!) and as someone who has been working in communications, PR and marketing for a while. Look, it's pretty lengthy, but I've tried to break this post up into sensible chunks so you know where you are, and so you can come back to it at later stages and find what you are looking for pretty quickly (Bookmark this puppy for easy reference). So go make yourself a brew, get comfy, and start reading. There's quite a bit to get through.

An English Rose: Lady Voluptuous Phoebe Dress in Blue Winter Floral

Since their launch last year, I have been a big fan of Lady Voluptuous, the plus size brand from Lady Vintage London. The joy of this brand is that for their key designs they worked with plus size blogger and super babe Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, who knows what we bigger ladies love and what we look for in the perfect pin up dress. Their Lyra is pretty much my favourite every day dress , which I wear all the time. But I love the Phoebe style for its gorgeous pin up shape and bold patterns.

Long and Layered: Tiered Black Maxi Dress and Wrap Front Tunic from Pink Clove


Some of my plus size blogger sisters are just killer at layering, but it's never something that has come particularly naturally to me. I tend to throw on a dress and a cardi, identify some key accessories, and run out the house. So when the lovely folk at Pink Clove wanted to send me some pieces from their AW collection, I decided to get some stuff that would work well for layering.
