Plus Size Party Wear with Curvissa*

I'm really liking simple, elegant, timeless dressing at the moment.  Nearly everything I have purchased lately has been classic lines: pencil skirts, tailored blazers, shift dresses and a-line skirts.   Nearly all have also been black, meaning many recent selfies have had a floating head syndrome going on - just check out my Instagram if you don't believe me.  
When Curvissa asked me to review one of their dresses from the party wear range, I naturally went for a classic shift that would last forever. 

Plus Size LBD from Dorothy Perkins Curve

DP Curve have got more than few things right in their collection and this astoundingly beautiful, demure, & sophisticated party dress is just one of them!

A Plus Size Christmas Jumper

So I think we can safely say that it's Christmas - I've been drinking mulled cider for a week or two, the garden centres are bedecked with tinsel, and every shop I went in on a shopping spree yesterday was blasting the corniest Christmas songs there are.
Yes - Christmas is here ... and so are Christmas jumpers!

Sparkles & Pleather - Plus Size Attire from House of Fraser*

For me, the Christmas season is time for pretty dress, faux fur, and plenty of sparkles.  My wardrobe, if you haven't already gathered, is packed full of pretty party dresses and my usual go-to little black dresses.
But, occasionally, there are parties that don't require a formal gown but something a little more laid back.  I'm talking sat drinking mulled wine in front of the fire in gastro pub.  You want some sparkle and some luxury without the full on  ball gown.   This top from House of Frasers plus size line, Label Lab, is just perfect for these occasions.

Black Tie & Event Wear with Bon Prix*

I love an excuse to get dolled up to the nines!  

Every year I have at least one or two black tie events to attend that really allow me to go all out in the fashion stakes so when Bon Prix offered me a dress from their party range, I just had to chose the most extravagant dress on offer. 

Plus Size Lingerie from Sculptresse - Pure Lace Review*

A Christmas Cookbook ...

A few weeks ago, when talking to Sculptresse by Panache about some product reviews, I mind a bit of typo.  I was talking about my Christmas Lookbooks when my computer kindly autocorrected the sentence to Christmas Cookbooks and so I just had to do some shoots of cooking in my lingerie! 

A Plus Size Christmas with Studio 8*

For those who don't know I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!!
This year, I have a lot of parties to go to so I'm going to need some decent party dresses to see me through to New Year and at least on of these HAS to be red. 

Saucy Curves with Tutti Rouge - Jessica Review

I'm in love with Tutti Rouge - their entire damn collection is to die for.   

Flirty prints, luxurious materials, and bold colour combinations seem to be the brands trademark  - not to mention the bubbly models, did people see how amazing Felicity Hayward looked when shooting for them earlier this year?

Preppy Perfection with DP Curve

When dresses become tunics ... 

If you haven't heard the Dorothy Perkins has launched a Curve collection, then you've been living under a rock! 

The plus size blog-osphere seems to have gone a little crazy over them since launching a month or two ago - and I can really see why.   A series of pretty skater dresses and chic workwear solutions, the range is very much welcomed for a girl who spends most of her life in an office. 

There are many items in the range that I could happily absorb into my wardrobe, but by far my favourite was the Monochrome Dog Tooth Tunic Dress.   

A Plus-Size (Almost) Little Black Dress

It's November, so I can officially say it: CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!

The next two months are filled with endless dinner dates, drinks with friends, fancy parties and black tie events.  This means my wardrobe gets a real rollicking and a new little black dress is always a welcome addition to see me through the winter months and this marble and black print dress from Elvi is a new take on the season's LBD.
