Lingerie Love.





Black Chemise with Suspender Straps: c/o Ninex Lingerie. Black Strapless Bra (barely seen): Triumph. Hair Scarf: Vintage, Thrifted.

I'm back with another adorable lingerie post for you! This time in collaboration with Ninex Lingerie. I did a review of one of their baby dolls at least 18 months ago now and the lovely team reached out to me again to see if I'd like to review something from their new pieces and This pretty lace number caught my eye. I just wish I could have gotten some better photos of this item though as these don't do it justice! (perils of having to use self timer in your bedroom!) 

One of the things I love about Ninex is that the pieces have a really good price point but they are actually also comfortable. For instance if I'd bought a cheaper babydoll the lace could be scratchy and irritate my sensitive skin but this chemise is lovely and soft which is often rare with cheaper lace lingerie and nightwear in my opinion. I'm wearing a 4XL I believe which is probably a 20/22 it fits well and hugs the body well but doesn't cling in an uncomfortable way at all. I decided to do my usual vintage kind of style but with added omph! I felt really cute in this overall look and I really hope it shows through on the photos! If you're a more casual kind of girl when it comes to nightwear etc Ninex do the cutest cami and short sets which I'm eyeing up for when I eventually need summer appropriate sleepwear!

RI Plus.





Dress: c/o RI Plus. Wedges: Primark (old). Belt: Vintage. Sunglasses: Specspost. Necklace:Asos.

I was lucky enough a few months ago to be sent a some pieces of the River Island Plus Size range. Unfortunately this dress is now sold out on the site but I'll be putting together a wish list of items I'm absolutely loving from their current range because there is SO many pieces! Did you also know that RI Plus is now available on Asos, great news right?! This style of dress is something I'd usually really shy away from as figure hugging dresses aren't normally my thing as the one part of my body I'm still a little insecure about is my tummy (not because it's fat but it's the shape of how it sits, if that makes sense?!) This may be why it's taken me so long to post these... I've not been myself these past few months but I won't bore you with that! 

What surprised me most about RI Plus is that the items seems pretty true to size! From my experience of already established brands creating a plus size section the sizing can sometimes be quite off but with RI Plus the size 20 fits me really well, I even managed to get in the jeans they sent me to review (which I will be posting shortly!) Funny enough the more I look at these photos of this dress on me the more I begin to like the shape, sure my tummy wobbles out a little bit but I'm definitely still rocking it! I decided to style it up with my all time favourite wedges which were from Primark years ago and I will cry when they finally give up! My handcuff necklace and finally my favourite sunglasses which in case you haven't noticed basically don't leave my face between the months of May to October! 

I can't wait to show you more River Island Plus! They've also announced that they will be launching wide fit shoes which I am MASSIVELY excited about and I will of course show you my favourites once launched!

Introducing Want That Trend - Part 1





Dress: c/o Want That Trend. Belt: Next. Clutch: Evans. Shoes: Primark. Sunglasses: Specpost.

When Want That Trend first reached out to me I was honestly not sure what to except. I'd seen them floating around the internet over the last year (mainly Facebook as this is where they have really taken off!) and thought they didn't look too bad for straight size fast fashion. So when they announced they would be catering for the plus size market my ears pricked up. Now they are currently only available up to a UK24 which isn't brilliant but for a new brand on the scene it's certainly a start. The lovely team over at WTT have sent me 3 dresses to show you and this Lydia Floral Navy Top Skater Dress is the first. When you look on the Plus Size section of the site you will see there is ALOT of choice, I didn't know where to start! To my knowledge all the dresses are made from this thick scuba material which I do love for the skirt as it keeps it shape really well but I was a little dubious about on the top sections as it can sometimes be quite a warm fabric to wear! Lots of the dresses are the same style and/or cut but in different prints for me personally if I find a shape I like I'll probably want to get it in every colour available anyway! Sure these dresses may not be winning anything in the High fashion stakes however if you're looking for cute dresses for work or nights out that don't need hours of ironing these would definitely be a go to! 

Here I'm wearing the UK Size 20 which I would state is true to size but I wouldn't say there is masses of room in them personally so if you fluctuate between a certain size I'd go up just to be on the safe side. I do love the brightness of the print and for the price point (that is the same for the smaller sizes, which makes a nice change!) Also shall we all just look at how fun the first photo is, thank you sunshine and the fact it was windy when I was shooting them!

I hope you look forward to Part 2 coming soon!
