Lucky Black Cats: Voodoo Vixen Katniss Dress in Blue

It's been a little while since I have had some pinup repro on the blog, but that 50s look is still my go to style and a couple of months back I picked up this gorgeous Katniss dress from Voodoo Vixen's Plus Size range, Vixen Curve. With it's black cat print and three quarter sleeves I have just been waiting for the weather to change so I could wear it. Feels like autumnal perfection. And joy of joys, this baby has pockets!

Among the whispering, the champagne and the stars: Gatsby Lady Flapper Dress in Emerald Green

Every few years I reread The Great Gatsby. Each time, within its pages, I learn something new about myself, about love, and about the human condition. Gatsby's dreamy soul speaks to my romantic one. The beautiful, transformative power and faith of his love and all that it builds is really one of the greatest stories of all time. The book speaks of longing, desire, excess, love and nostalgia - some of my very favourite topics.

Modern Woman: The Yours Clothing Styling Challenge

One of the things I love about blogging is I have discovered loads of women with such different style to my own. It challenges me and my wardrobe, but also it just makes me glad that we're all different and that fashion is as diverse as the people who love it. Take my very own blog wife and BoPo babe Lottie L'Amour - where I am all retro, feminine flirtiness, her style is streetwise, quirky and modern. Recently Lottie L'Amour and I decided to set ourselves a little styling challenge. We each picked the other an outfit from Yours Clothing. Something we thought would look good on the other, but would also challenge them a little. Check out what Lottie picked for me...

Parka Life: Studio 8 Naomi Parka

I've never owned a casual coat. Even more ridiculous, despite living in the madly rainy city that is London I've never owned a rain coat. Basically I just wasn't prepared to sacrifice style for staying dry, ha.  But this cosy yet chic Naomi Parka from Studio 8 has me convinced that sometimes comfort is definitely the way to go.

My Month in Outfis: What I Wore in September

September was a bit all over the map weather wise. We had some scorchers, and a fair bit of rain too. And with Curve Fashion Festival, a wedding, and the Evans #IamMe awards I had a few different occasions to dress up for, so here's what I wore in September...
