I’m always so excited when I hear that a brand I love is launching a curve collection, so when I heard that Quiz was launching it’s very own curve range I did a little eeeee inside. Here is my latest outfit featuring quiz curve!

So, just like with the River Island plus launch, I did not rush out and buy anything from the Quiz range at first. Although I love Quiz, I’m always a little bit wary, mostly about sizing and fit. So I like to wait until I’ve seen the items reviewed by others first before I rush out and buy something.

So if you’re not familiar with the So Fabulous range, it’s sold online at Very and Little woods. I personally think that most of the range is trendy and fashionable and it offers another option for us plus size ladies. I don’t often shop at Very anymore, but I got an email about a sale and couldn’t resist a little peep!

The first pair I ever bought were from Simply Be and pretty much all of my jean collection is made up of jeans from them. What I love about their range of jeans is that there are so many different styles so even if you’re not a skinny jeans kinda girl like me there will be something for you!

Dress up Friday – Boohoo Plus Elizabeth Midi Dress!

Hello and welcome to the first instalment of Dress Up Friday! This is all about taking the well know dress down Friday and turning it into something glam! This month I have chosen to feature the Boohoo Plus Elizabeth Midi Dress!

I love the Boohoo Plus range, not only does it provide so many options for us plus size babes, it’s extremely affordable too so it’s a must if you’re looking for affordable fashion!

Because I’m so short, I often worry about buying things that are described as “midi” mainly because they tend to sit at my ankles! This dress is perfect though, it is perhaps a little longer at the back than I would like, but because of the Hi-Lo detailing it really works for me.

The fabric is quite thick and I love the Bardot style with the fold down detailing. The skirt is pleated at the front and really full, I definitely get a 50’s vibe from it!

Boohoo Plus Lily lace detail swing dress!

Hi everyone! It’s the start of yet another week! Im optimistic though as half term looms, it means that work is fairly quiet for me. I’m back today bringing you a review of this lovely Boohoo Plus Lily lace detail swing dress.

What I love about the Boohoo Plus range is that it’s stylish and affordable. It caters for every occasion and there is always something on the site that I’m lusting after. What I find hard to accept with the Boohoo plus range though is the sizing, sometimes it can be so off and has been for me on many occasions!

I recently made an order and chose to buy this swing dress. It’s not something I would normally choose, but I purchaseda similar cami  a few months ago and loved that so thought I would give this a go.

After some drama with the delivery, my items arrived and I fell in love with this dress as soon as I put it on. The sizing was spot on for this I’m happy to report though. I’m wearing a UK 18.

Yours Clothing Skater Skirt!

Hi everyone, welcome to the start of another week! Today I wanted to share with you this gorgeous outfit, featuring a Yours Clothing skater skirt!

Yours Clothing for me does not always cater for my personal style when I try to shop in store. I see something I love online and then have NEVER found it in store. I spoke to the lady in my local store and asked how they choose what to stock and she told me that the stock changes week by week depending on what sells well. This makes it hard to know whether I will actually like something as I cannot try it on before I buy it, but I took a chance and ordered this skater skirt anyway and I’m glad I did!

I love anything skater style and I adore this skirt! To me it’s a fifties style with a modern twist, the double layer style has pleats the whole way round which make it so full and glamorous!

Fashion Union Curve Shift Dress!

This was a brand I had never heard of, until now! I was browsing for clothes on the internet and stumbled upon the Lipsy Website and enter Fashion Union Curve!

It’s a small plus size collection featuring pretty prints and on trend pieces that are to die for! I chose to go for this printed shift dress and I must say when it arrived, I was not as impressed as I hoped I would be!

I’m wearing a UK size 20 here and would advise you to size up when buying from this range!
