You know when you don’t realise how much you love a dress until you see it on and realise you look amazing? This is what happened with the Karina Penelope Dress at $108. I love Karina dresses I’ve reviewed two now the Megan and Trudy as I’m actually a brand ambassador, I don’t think I’ve told you all that before? But yeah, I like the brand so much and they thankfully like my style too so every month (unless the post loses a dress again and it’s a little later) I’ll be featuring one of their beautiful dresses! Perfect for my readers in American and I know there’a a lot of you, as they’re based there, but for the UK, I will include postage information at the bottom. The Penelope 3/4 sleeve dress is by far my favourite, it features a criss-cross v-neck, along with small gathers on front and back bodice making…

Studio 8’s launch has really excited me since the first email, it’s from the people that brought Phase Eight to the scene and we’ve all seen just by walking past their shop, the dresses are beautiful and so beyond elegant. Studio 8 is now bringing that to a bigger audience, literally, as it’s a plus size brand that caters for sizes 16 – 24. Already, we can all see the problem, they don’t cater past a size 24 and that’s only the beginning of plus size, so hopefully in the near future, they will expand this and make more people happy.Now that the bad is out of the way, there’s really nothing negative to say at all about the beautiful Ruth Spot Dress, it’s very much nothing to what I would normally go for, but I love how I feel in it. It’s a very sophisticated, wrap dress, at a lovely below the…

After far too many weeks of feeling as if my back could snap at any given minute, the gym has been on the back of my mind. It’s annoying as I really loved going to the gym and working out as it was helping the pain caused by a car accident last year. But, I’ve allowed it, when you’re in absolute agony and you can’t physically stand, it’s not exactly the best idea to run to the gym everyday and make it worse. Therefore, I’m on a little break, just until some physio and Doctors reassure me that I haven’t completely broken myself and I’m fine to go back. However, from my many months of having the gym bug, I did get to try out quite a lot of fun things to help me on my way with motivation. Including the comfiest pair of trainers ever, which I now can’t live without. My Skechers Bikers Hot Ticket Shoes from…

It’s a common misconception that all fat people also have fat feet. I mean, that’s completely the case with me, but I know tonnes of plus size bloggers with the most dainty, beautiful feet ever. I just haven’t been blessed in that department at all. My 5’3 stumpy self has instead been cursed with the fattest, widest, and neediest feet ever. I can fit into a size 5, 6 or 7 depending on the wideness and design of the shoe, but mainly with everything being so narrow, I’m a 7. Recently I was contacted by Shoetique to try out a pair of their many shoes that they stock, and to be honest, I panicked.   I haven’t really reviewed shoes before for all those reasons listed above, awkward feet aren’t something I thought would make an amazing read. However, as soon as I saw the ‘Gabor Boots Vastra Black Nubuck‘…

You know when you find a new favourite outfit but you just can’t take a good enough photo that does it justice? Well, this has happened for two weeks now whilst I’ve tried to share my latest ‘dress to impress’ attire. There’s always that one piece in your wardrobe that you know you can make it work for any occasion. For me, it had been my new Newlook Inspire Black Lace Bustier Skater Dress*, at £24.99. I’m wearing a size 20, as I’ve always found Newlook’s sizing spot on and occasionally I can still fit into an 18! In the picture below I’m in Hyde park wearing the Black Soft Brushed Coat at £49.99 and Black Quilted Panel Twist Lock Satchel at £19.99, both from Newlook, with Evans Leggings, a Yours Clothing Belt and Yours Clothing Leopard Print Jacket.         Not only does the dress look beautiful,…
