Fashion | The Curve Fashion Festival

Tuesday, 25 September 2018 | No comments


Hi,

So, if you didn't already know, this years Curve Fashion Festival is taking place on the 17th November. I am very excited as this is the first time I will be attending!

As someone who is a huge lover of fashion, I always get excited when I hear of brands releasing plus size ranges. One brand that I didn't realise had a plus size range was Debenhams. If you go to their website via this link you will find brands such as Debenhams own range, The Collection, Dorothy Perkins and RJR John Rocha. My wardrobe needs updating for Autumn so, over the next few weeks I will be browsing for new pieces. But, not before I have a declutter first, I feel I will need plenty of space!



At the festival Debenhams will not only be showcasing their plus size range but, also their lingerie range as well. They will be hosting bra fittings, definitely one area that I will be heading too straight away. Hands up if you are also guilty of not having had a bra fitting in a long, long time!




You can find out more about the festival here. If you are attending I look forward to seeing you there!


Lifestyle | Intu SS18 Blogger Challenge

Thursday, 29 March 2018 | No comments


Hi,

Following on from my post on Tuesday here is the second part of the SS18 Intu Blogger Event! You can read the first part here.

So, after seeing all the gorgeous clothes, makeup and Lush products at the event it was time to do the final part, the challenge. I've done a few of these before and I always look forward to them. It gives me a chance to see what's in the shops and then persuade Mr C to take me back so that I can shop!

The challenge was to find three capsule pieces for your wardrobe for this season. Your three items can be absolutely anything to do with fashion and something which you think will be your staple throughout this season and into the next to rock all the latest trends. In addition to that  find a statement piece which is on your lust list for the season and is extra special!

My first stop was Debenhams, I found so many pieces in there and plenty to fit me as well. First of all is this gorgeous dress from Nine by Savannah Miller. It is perfect for the floral SS18 trend and would definitely be a versatile piece in your wardrobe right through until the winter where it would be perfect layered up with a chunky cardigan and long boots

My second piece is from Karen Millen. They have the best accessories, I'm always lusting over their bags and these ones are just gorgeous and would go perfectly with the dress above.

Last of all, one of my favourite items I picked and in keeping with the pastel theme are these trainers from Office. Ideally I would love to add both to my shoe collection but, if I had to choose one colour it would be the light cream, they will go with everything! I can imagine them paired with the dress above for the perfect Spring look.






For my Star Buy it was back to Debenhams. Now, this Kimono literally stopped me in my tracks, floral, check, bright colour, check, a must for my SS wardrobe, check! I couldn't resist a quick trying on session and it did not disappoint, I need to go back after payday (keeping my fingers crossed its still there!) I'm wearing a size 18 here and it fits so bear in mind if you do purchase it.




And this why I need the kimono AND the dress in my wardrobe. Hello Spring!






Thank you to intu MK for another great event and giving me lots of inspiration for my SS wardrobe! And thank you to all the brands such as Clinique, Debenhams and Lush that contributed to our goodie bags!
