Fluff & Flowers

With so many lovely summer items in the sales and filling our wardrobes it is easy to Winter them up with a cardigan to keep the wind and chill at bay! I bought this beautiful dress I had been coveting for a while in the Yours Clothing sale and got this amazing super soft and fluffy eyelash knit cardi in Burgundy (available in 4 colour choices) and think it is a great Autumn/Winter outfit! I love a skater dress. 
I decided to size up in the cardi to a 30/32 for an oversized look and to allow for shrinkage in the wash. The cardi has pockets and is a good longer length to keep the bum warm. The colour was what caught my eye as I love an eyelash knit for its snug and cozy warmth. I basically live in these cardigans all winter. They dont have the scratchy itch of normal cardigans so its a win win. 

Cardigan - Yours Clothing Burgundy Eyelash Cardigan size 30/32 £32

Shoes - Clarks
Necklace - Charcoal Designs

I was gifted this Cardigan for review. All opinions are my own.

Plus North 2014 - Sunday Swap

Sunday was Clothes Swap day. It was a lovely sunny and warm day in Leeds and I wore this flower print dress I got from Modcloth in a recent sale (sold out) 

My view from The Travelodge hotel room.

A great photo from Curvy Kate of the eveyone at the Swap.

I have been having major bra problems and have been living with only one good bra for well over a month now! I got fitted by the lovely ladies at the Curvy Kate stall and found out I can actually get bras from them and I am a 42K in their brand. Sadly they had sold out on the Saturday of my size and Simply Be website has too. I am waiting for a new one to become available so I can buy 10! hahaha!

I realise I have not said anything about the brands in these posts and having no photos of the day has made if difficult but I have been impressed by the coverage of the Event by BGP Magazine so urge you to read their 3 posts on the days events!

My Top 10 Bling

In my last post I wore this beautiful necklace from FollowRayOnline and wanted to share with you my top 10 picks from the range since there are so many beauties to choose from or collect!

I went for this necklace as it has lots of different colours and figured it would look fab with most things in my wardrobe. These are such great items to add to a plain outfit to give it that something special look. They are also just as fabulous with a sparkle number and with so much bling for you money how can you say no! With necklaces starting from as little as £7.99 these really are something special. There are so many styles and something to suit everyone. These would make the perfect gift for someone too.

Which are your favourites from my top 10? Do you have a necklace from FollowRayOnline? head on over to the website to see the full collection and grab a bargain!

Plus North 2014 - Saturday Night

This is my Plus North evening outfit recreated as the lighting was not that great for photos at the venue or my phone was just being rubbish. I got this dress after Christmas in the Simply Be sale and this was its first outing! I knew I wanted to keep it for something special and Plus North is VERY SPECIAL!!! I was given this AMAZING necklace by FollowRayOnline. They have an incredible range of sparkle and bling necklaces! Another Post to follow just about these necklaces! I chose this one because it has so many colours and would go with any other accessories I chose for an outfit. It is a true statement necklace and just what I wanted for this outfit.

These were my accessories for this outfit. I went with the pink but could have easily went with any other colour thanks to the necklace. I wore my iclickoptical glasses (Just enter iclick10lolly at checkout for a 10% discount!) and New Look donut clutch bag.

This is the necklace as described on the FollowRayOnline website.
My Top 10 picks post to follow!

Plus North 2014 - Saturday Day

It finally came! Plus North! I waited a year for this weekend. This was the third Plus North Event and I have attended all three. It never fails to impress with how many brands and people come out to support this Plus Size focused event. Everyone is welcome but it aimed at Plus Size ladies who like fashion. I headed to Leeds by train with friends Abbie and Philipa. Sadly I was too busy this year modelling for Topsy Curvy and Evans and running around like a headless chicken to see everything that I forgot to take photos so this is pulled together with recreated outfit photos and borrowed photos from other people. (credits under photos)

I wore one of my many amazing Modcloth dresses. This one is a lovely mustard colour and goes well with my newly dye hair. I am unsure if this dress is still available as it was in the sale and only 4x left when I ordered. 

Shoes - Clarks
Bag - New Look
Brooch - Luxulite
Glasses - Dead Mens Spex

 This was the perfect outfit show off my Luxulite brooch I purchased from etsy not too long ago.

My lovely friend Katie did my eyelashes for the event and gave me glamorous eyes! 

This photo was taken by Jim Hawkins. He had a stall at the event to promote his photographic services. He also did a podcast at the event (Have a listen HERE

This is my friend Abbie and I in the hotel room before we headed to the venue. You may recognise her from last weeks Elvi Jacket review.

The lovely Philipa wearing Simply Be and it was her first time at Plus North and modelling!

This is a cookie pizza and was peanut butter flavour and soooo yummy! I will be trying to make one of these at home.

My first crack at modelling was for Topsy Curvy. I had these super cute outfits both reasonably priced as are all their range. Check out the website to see everything available.

I modelled two outfits for Evans but can only find one on the website. Both were lovely to wear but sadly my feet could not take the heels Evans provided me with after standing most of the day.

When the Day Event ended after a mass of Raffle prizes being won, Abbie, Steph - Seeing Spots, Chloe - Pesky Chloe/Lifes Big Canvas and myself headed to Nandos for dinner and seat to rest out tired feet. 

Don't ask! I have no clue! lol!!!

More Plus North outfits to come soon!
