With a retro twist by adding a vintage shirt and shoes?
Ship shape nautical with a bright clutch and shoes?
A mixture of the two?
Or classic styling with a plain black bag and black heels? Share your thoughts!
As the song says,
“It may be winter outside, but in my heart it’s spring….”
So say Love Unlimited and so say I. Outside is frosty but the longer days are creeping in and I’m on the lookout for daffodils. Warmer weather is coming and I’m certainly ready with two new dresses at Beloved Endeavour.
Once upon a time sequins along with metallics were only seen in the autumn winter collections but now they have broken their own rules and are set to claim their space in our spring wardrobes. I’ve already worn the dress on the left- albeit with opaques and a cardi but I must say that the sequins jazzed up my winter mood. I wore it in the daytime too. What a rebel I am.
Once upon a time before the Etsy shop, I had a Big Cartel site from which I sold belts and clothing. I still have various items of stock from those days that I need to clear and I have started to list some on Ebay. Like these dresses…
and this one too..
I have several of the dresses in the first photo left in sizes 18- 30 but the check dress is only available in size 18 as it was a sample. I have a few other things that I will list over coming weeks so keep an eye on my Ebay page as you could bag yourself a bargain!
Well its been 24hrs since last night’s Golden Globes ceremony and the internet is abuzz with Meryl vs Resident Chump, Hidden Fences and Tracee Ellis Ross. It seems the main chatter amongst the fatosphere though was this dress worn by Chrissy Metz.
From the posts that I read on the Garner Style Facebook page the majority of commenters hated it and felt her stylist should be fired/ run out of town. My opinion? I liked all of it apart from the shoulders. I love the colour and you probably already know that velvet is my favourite fabric so of course I like that too. I think the drape of the dress is exquisite and I love the gathers and detailing at the front but the shoulders…. man the shoulder action just let the whole thing down in my humble opinion. Are those actually shoulder pads? Are we back there again? Maybe Chrissy is single-handedly going to bring them back to the fashion fore. She could become the next Balmain muse as they love a pronounced shoulder. Maybe not as we also know high-end designers don’t dress fat people.
Still, I’m pretty much through with begging people to make clothes in my size. I’ll just take my custom to someone who is interested in bigger bodies and stop wasting my breath and bandwidth. On that note, come through Nathan Paul! I’m off to find out more about the man who designed the much talked about frock.
The official new year’s eve portrait….
I spent new year’s eve in church which is different to how I usually spend the evening. Usually I am at home curled up on the sofa in my PJ’s watching TV and flicking between various televised church services and Jools Holland’s Hootenanny. This year I figured I would do something a little more social and go and interract with some actual real life people, not digitised ones for a change. I’m glad I did. I saw some old students that I used to teach around 6 years ago and it was nice to see that they had grown into lovely young people. I would have missed that if I’d stayed in!
