I love anything which includes a harness detail, so when I saw this amazing Simply Be Harness Detail Bodycon for just £15, it was a total no brainer for me. It spoke to my inner teenage goth, and is the perfect balance of comfy and cor blimey!

This week's round up of SS17 fashion is filled with stunning prints, fun metallics and accessories galore. Previews from Simply Be, JD Williams, New Look, River Island and House of Fraser all brought with them the promise of summer fun, and just for a day, I was able to stop obsessing over all things Christmas just long enough to fall in love the forthcoming sartorial season.
As soon as the autumn hits, my wardrobe goes from floaty florals to almost all black everything. Anyone who's read my blog for a while will know that Wednesday Addams is one of my favourite style icons, so this dress obviously leaped out at me the second I saw it.
I never need an excuse to swoon over pretty party dresses, so was very excited to pop along to see La Redoute and their festive partywear offerings. Filled with shimmering metallics, cute clutches and foil fabrics perfect for festive mischief, have a look at the video below for some party filled inspiration.
A few months ago, I put a shout on on social media looking for people who would be interested in telling me why the phrase "plus size" was so important to them. It was a question born out of the "drop the plus" debate, and I wanted to know how the term plus size had been a useful tool for good. It was so wonderful to see the replies coming in, with stories of people finding body acceptance, self love and a place amongst a supportive community which straddled politics, feminism as well as fashion. Over two days with very extreme weather, I photographed some of them in their favourite outfits, which you can see below.
With Navabi and Elvi showing their SS17 ranges together, you knew that the room was going to be a giant burst of colour. With strong patterns and stunning embroidery at every turn, I could barely wait to riffle through the rails to see what delights were in store for the sunnier side of the year.
Now that we're half way through November, the Christmas countdown is officially on! And whilst most of us are thinking about how to sparkle in our partywear, it's also time to consider the other great beauty we need to dress - our Christmas trees!
I am such a stationary fiend but as both a freelancer and a blogger, I like to kid myself that it's mostly for practical reasons. However sometimes a product comes along with a concept so wonderful that your desire to own it comes 100% guilt free, and that is exactly how I felt when I stumbled across the StunBear notebook on Kickstarter. If you want something beautiful to plan out your goals, your time and to really help you focus, make sure this goes onto your Christmas list immediately!
Plus size brand Studio Eight have really established themselves as one of the best go to brands for stunning occassionwear, and their SS17 collection brings some of it's most exciting offerings yet. From stunning floor length beaded maxis to wedding worthy prom dresses, it's a selection filled with vibrant and beautiful designs with clever embellishments and stunning fabrics.
SS17 from George at Asda brings an exciting whirlwind of colour in the form of loud dresses, fun accessories and swoon worthy shoes. It's all about the detail with embroidery, buttons, frills and frou frou all coming to the forefront in a collection which is essentially about grown up fun. It creates a fine balance between glamour and frivolity, with sharp tailoring and soft florals paired with muted tones cute metallics.
local service professionals in my area, I stumbled across Bidvine who were able to help me match with people who could help. I was looking for two things - a ukulele teacher and someone to help move some furniture from Berkshire to London. Both queries were speculative as I wanted to get a feel for what was available, but it turned out that the site was able to turn around multiple leads for both.
stunning print on the Lovedrobe website, it was love at first sight! The yellow floral print is so pretty, with the silver leaves balancing out the print to perfection.
I love autumn fashion as it allows me to wrap myself up in lots of cosy layers, so pinafore dresses have been a huge favourite in my wardrobe. Towards the end of summer I fell in love with this pretty dress from Jameela Jamil for Simply Be, with it's pale blue shade and plentiful pockets right up my street.
