BooHoo Haul ~ Plus Size Fashion







Ok guys so firstly I'm really sorry I've been away for like a month now I've just been super busy with other exciting things that I so cant wait to share with you, not long to wait now! But I do feel bad I've been neglecting you guys but I promise all the stuff I've been busy doing will totally benefit what I already have going on. Anyway enough rambling from me back to the point!

I've been wanting to do a boohoo.com haul for ages now as I just keep buying more and more lol whoops! Anyway I'm totally in love with this new discovery of mine and I wanted to share my joy with you. I thought it would be a good idea to actually try on the pieces I got for you so you can see exactly how they fit someone of my body type.

#WeAreTheThey

Hey guys long time no speak!

Its such a shame that anytime anything positive in the media comes out about plus size people that there is inevitably a bad backlash. This time it was the comments on loose women from Jamelia after the plus size wars documentary on channel 4.

This is just my little opinion on the whole thing.

One Skirt Three Ways - Plus Size Fashion

Afternoons guys!
Ok ok I know I haven't posted in 2 whole weeks! major fail on my part there, I've been quite distracted by sexy boys, my bad!  but new year resolutions don't just happen without any bumps in the road right? So you forgive me yes? ok good :)

Right on with the Plus Size fashion post!
So I got this maxi skirt in the sales and I haven't worn a long skirt in about 10 years! So for myself and others like me who have been absent from the maxi skirt in quite sometime I wanted to try out a few different ideas, see if I could make it fit into a plethora of occasions. I believe I succeeded.
Now not all the items I'm wearing are new or still available however I will try and link to items as similar as possible to the ones I am wearing.

High Waisted

Firstly with this skirt being so super duper long I wanted to see if it would work high wasted with it still being long enough to hit the floor, as I personally cant stand long skirts that fall above the ankles having little legs this just does not suit me one bit! However as I'm only 5ft 4inch even wearing this skirt high up still left plenty of length. I just simply paired it with a plan white vest top, cropped black cardigan and thick elasticated belt.


Comfy & Casual

Now as much as I love fashion I also love being cosy and comfy so this time I just put the skirt with a lovely warm slightly over sized jumper. This particular jumper does have some sequin star detailing to add a little sparkle after all everything is better with a little sparkle right?  I folded the bottom of the jumper up slightly as I think this just gave a better shape to the whole thing.


Sexy

Those of you who know me will know I love a "sexy" outfit. I like to make the most of what I deem to be some of my best assets. That being said I thought I would see if I could pull this maxi skirt off in a party night outfit. I think it makes a nice change from the usual leggings or jeans I predominantly wear when dancing the night away. The top I chose is one I got from yoursclothing.com quite some time ago, the bottom of the top is elasticated which allows the plentiful fabric to fall down is an extremely flattering style. I chose to have the top sit just above the skirt so it would fall down at hit just at the right place. This top has lovely beading detail to the bust area, I also paired this with a thick elastic waist belt as to show off my hour glass figure.

Dinner and Moive Night OutFit - Plus Size Fashion

Afternoon my little jellybeans hope you all have that Friday feeling!
Today I'm bring you a little plus size outfit inspiration. I got this amazing new coat from Asos and wanted a chance to show it off and share it with all you lovely people. In with that I thought I would show one of the new sales dresses I got in my plus size January sales post.

ASOS CURVE Exclusive Fit & Flare Coat With Belted Waist


Now this is the first coat I have purchased in quite some years as I'm not a huge fan on them as I have found most coats don't really fit my shape that well and end up making me look like a big box.
I had heard good things about the Asos curve fit and flare coats and when I saw this little beauty in the sale I thought I would give it a go. I'm so glad I did, this coat fits me like a glove! I love the belted waist as this help to define my figure and gives me a lovely shape. My favourite part of the cost has to be the dipped hem at the back I think it just gives this cost a little something extra. The coat has a felted wool feel and is super warm an cosy. This cost is available in the colours wine and navy and started off at £70 and is not available here for £35.
(while looking up links I may have just ordered this in the wine colour as well....whoops!)


Black And White Monochrome Block Stripe Skater Dress



So you may have already seen this dress in the sales clothing haul video I did, lots of you asked if you could see the dresses on so when I decided to wear this new dress to meet my friends for dinner and a movie I though I would take the opportunity to show you how it actually looks on. I'm 5ft 4in so you have some prospective of how long the dress might be on you. I did originally order this in my usual size but it was a little big so I took it back and sized down and now the fit is perfect. I love the little cut down the cleavage as it shows enough to be a little sexy but not enough to be all in your face. I love that when I twirl in this dress is goes out a little, I always wanted dresses like that as a kid I think that was the effect Disney movies had on me. The fit is amazing it shows off all the right curves and hides the lumps and bumps. I am wearing it with a yours clothing think pink waterfall cardigan to add a touch of colour, unfortunately this cardigan is no longer available however they do have a very similar one in purple available here. This dress is available here for £35.





If you liked this type of post and would like to see more where I try on different outfits then please leave me a comment. Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll see you Monday.

5 Things You Can Get Away With On Your Period



Evening guys, so obviously Aunt flo is in town and making me feel like I have a rugby match going on in my womb, all I want to do is curl up into a ball and eat my weight in chocolate but in an attempt to make myself feel better I though I would bash this little blog post out.  So here you go: my top five things you can only get away with on your period;

1. Openly crying at the Meerkat advert.
I'm a pretty soft soul and it doesn't take much for something sentimental on the telly to make me cry, however I feel a 30sec advert about talking Meerkats is a little overboard unless that is I'm on my period then I am allowed to cry at anything. including the little snail I accidently stood on last night! RIP MR Slime

2. Eating everything in sight
This might possibly be my favourite one and its not like I exactly restrict myself that much normally anyway, but for some reason when the moon is right I just get ravenous! and I crave all the crappy things anything fatty and salty and especially CHOCOLATE the rest of the month I could take it or leave it but when I'm on its on! maybe its the endorphins I don't know but it just makes me feel so much better.

3. Taking an hour long bubble bath
I'm normally a shower person I just feel they are more time efficient but when I'm felling like poop the last thing I wanna do is stand there lathering up. No I use all my loveliest bath products pop on some Enya grab a trashy magazine and let my troubles drift away. I inevitably have the water far too hot so make that ooo ahahah sound when lowering myself in and come out looking like boiled lobster. I pretty much take over the bathroom for at least an hour and just keep topping up the hot water. This hour long using all the hot water bath taking doesn't make me popular in my house but I'm on my period so.......blah

4. Wearing cosy PJ's all day
In particular a onsie, which it what I have chosen to wear all day! Most of the time it would be see as a terrible notion to not get dressed for the day, but on your period its totally fine to just snuggle up in a big fuzzy ball and forget about the world...if only for one day.

5. Wearing massive pants
Now normally I am a fan of the sexy lace frenchies but not right now, no right now I want the biggest black pants I can get my hands on!  Its total comfort all the way, any hint of sexiness can go right out the window. Granny's totally have it right as far as this one is concerned....well for those few days a month anyway.

So yes I am that total girl on her period stereotype but you know i think im ok with that. If its gonna make me feel better then I'm gonna do it. Writing this post has at least made me feel better about almost wasting an entire day, and I hope it makes you guys feel a little better about your monthy behaviours. Love to hear about the things you do to make yourself feel better so leave me a comment :)

Yours Clothing Sales Dresses - Plus Size Fashion

Afternoon my little lovelies! So I popped over to the shopping centre the other day to exchange some dresses I bought that were too big but when I was in the shop I accidently bought a couple of other items.....whoops! in my defence they were in the sale and in my size so I took it as a sign from the powers that be.
Anyway when I did my last clothing videos/post you guys wanted to actually see me wearing the clothes so I took your advice and did just that. Do let me know if you like me doing it this way.

Black & Nude Pink Floral Lace Sleeveless Skater Prom Dress







I fell in love with this sleeveless skater prom dress when I first saw it hanging there on the rail calling my name. Gorgeous black lace over a delicate nude pink background. The bust is lightly padded and the under skirt is made up of a lovely silky material with a mesh trim which creates the lovely flared out effect.
This dress is made from a pretty stretchy material and I could of in fact even sized down so if your above the size 28 that this item goes up to it could still work as the fit is very generous. I really like the V-cut of this dress as it shows a little sexy cleavage without being too in your face so still a very appropriate dress for most formal occasions. The starting price for the dress was £60 but its now available here for £32 which I believe is an amazing price for such a good quality piece.


Red & Black Glitter Flocked Skater Dress With Patent Belt


 

Now this second dress isn't my usual style really, I had seen it in yours for a while and just passed it by but I happened to have seen another plus size blogger wearing it on instagram and it look so nice on her that when I saw it in the sale I just had to try it on.
This is another sleeveless skater style dress with a scooped neck and all over floral design with a lovely glitter effect. This dress does come with a skinny patient black belt around the middle however for me this kind of cut my body shape in two, so I decided to take that belt out and add a thicker one myself just under the bust giving me a much better shape.
The dress started off at £35 and is now available here for £18.40.
