Man, I love fashion.
After spending the last two months in a uniform of denim leggings, tshirts and trainers, I decided I’d had enough of my “normcore” look and wanted to wear something different. Not for any particular occasion- just out of boredom. My favourite grey marl sweatshirt is so comfy but I’d gotten sick of seeing it. So yesterday I made this outfit…
Its marvelous how a new outfit can make you strut a little more confidently.
Top and Skirt- Beloved Endeavour (Will be adding it to the Etsy shop soon)
Jacket- Old New Look
Boots- Old Evans
I may be a little biased but London Fashion Week has always been my favourite fashion week since day dot, and this season the promise of the Evans Design Collective show gave me another reason to look forward to it. Imagine- Evans on the main LFW schedule slap bang in the middle of the week. Well where else would it be- could you imagine putting any Phillip Green associated show off schedule? Ha! I think not. The Evans team plus six established designers- Giles Deacon, Clements Ribeiro, Hema Kaul, Lulu Liu, Jamie Wei Huang, and Vita Gottlieb- all showcasing clothes I can fit into. The collection looked great and it was good to see directional pieces that wouldn’t have looked out of place in any other LFW show for younger customers, alongside more classic fare for their core customer. The mix was good and as a brand that tries to be everything to every fat body, I think they did well.
Watch the show. What are your favourite pieces? Mine are the green evening dress, the white asymmetric dungaree dress and the silver leather laser cut skirt. Oh and the white burnout midi skirt. And the translucent silver floaty skirt. And the……..
Yesterday Asda launched its new plus sized range which goes up to a size 32 and I have to say I’m very……. underwhelmed.
Maybe its because its fashion week season and I’ve been looking at beauties like this…
….. that make the George Plus range appear doubly uninspiring by contrast. Of course, I wouldn’t expect high fashion from a supermarket line like I would from Asos or Evans, but I would expect a little bit more effort. Just a little bit. George Plus, you really do disappoint.
Any thoughts from you dear readers?
OH- And to add insult to injury- the range is only available online. But of course, you expected that didn’t you?
My first sale! Applies to all shop items.
Who was your favourite cartoon character as a child? Mine was Charlie Brown and I so wanted to live in his world with Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and Peanuts. Now that I’ve discovered these dramatic comic strip bags by Pop Up Bags, I can live out my cartoon dreams in glorious technicolour with a solid bold outline. I no longer pine for Chuck but I can certainly play the part of his cartoon girlfriend with one of these scene stealers.
The Pop Up Bags website doesn’t give any indication of how long the company has been trading or give any hints about what their next range may be, but I’m certainly following them on every social media platform available because I. MUST. SEE. MORE.
