Unfortunately today’s pop- up event in Victoria has been cancelled by the organisers but tomorrow’s event at the same location will still take place. Here are some other dates for your diary…..
Outfit from 11th June. It wasn’t quite warm enough for sleeveless but did that stop me? NOPE.
Dress from belovedendeavour.com
Dress: Beloved Endeavour
Shoes: Simply Be (sold out)
Bag: Topshop (sold out)
Yours truly modelling the FEARNE floral suit from Beloved Endeavour. I’m wearing the size 24. I usually wear a size 24/26 and this fits me fine as it’s stretchy. The fabric is medium weight, soft and very comfy to wear. I’m modelling both colours (black and mint) then the last two photos show the black jacket with the mint skirt. Availability is very limited so get yours now!
Looka here people, Beloved Endeavour is hitting the streets! Birmingham Fashion Festival is a free event taking place on June 22-25 in various locations around the city. Lots of new brands and designers will be there taking part in catwalk shows and allsorts. I will be there waving the plus size banner on June 22 and 23rd only (Thurs and Fri) at the event in Victoria Square, with a shoppable stand. It would be great to see you there- let’s make it a date!
Floral prints abound!
Two skirt suits with a dash of sassiness now available at belovedendeavour.com.
As you can observe from my expression, twirling is serious business.
Ever put on an outfit so great that someone would have to work really hard to mess with your vibe because you feel so good? Well on Friday I wore such an outfit.
As my nephew was getting married I decided to treat myself to a whole new look and I called on you to help plan it. If you follow me on Insta (@fatgirlclothes) you may remember me posting this pic and asking you to vote for what I should wear…
I really liked all three and couldn’t decide. Option A won so the pretty floral dress it was. You chose well ladies! I was already liking the asymmetric ruffle feature across the front but when it arrived I loved it even more because of the attention to detail on the back…
Asos didn’t scrimp on the frills as they continue on the back. Don’t you just hate it when a great design feature is only on the front when it could easily have been extended to the rear? The open back feature was a pleasant surprise and there are even frills at the end of the ties if you look closely. Asos Curve I love you.
My original shoes were these from New Look
But they were a bit too narrow, even in the wide fit. Instead I opted for the silver sandals from from Simply Be which fit perfectly as they are available in an E and EEE fitting (I got the EEE fit). In any case, the weather was such a scorcher on Friday that the Sandals were definitely the better option than the closed toe shoes. The in sole padding and slight texture ensured that my feet didn’t slide around as the temperature rose.
The clutch was from Asos too, is leather and a great quality item for a bargainicious £10. It has a zip closure to keep all your goodies from falling out when you’re pirouetting across open spaces with gay abandon.
Here’s a static photo for you in case all this spinning is making you dizzy
I’ve just checked the Asos site and this dress is very low in stock with only a few left. I give it a big fat seal of approval and am looking forward to wearing it again. Apart from my twirl dress being great, the wedding itself was superb. The bride and groom looked gorgeous, the service was lovely, the reception venue was beautiful, most of my family were there and it was hot. Not warm which is often the best you can hope for in a British summer- HOT. If I have my shades on you know its more than just a little sunny. It was as close to perfect as any day could be and when I finally went to bed around 2am it was with a big smile on my face. As Ice Cube said- today was a good day.
