I feel that I have not talked about fashion for so long! So to resolve this, today and tomorrow's post will be all fashion focused with favourite items in my most recent purchases and my current wishlist today and tomorrow, I am talking about how to work the sales when you are plus size.
I have always been big on patterns and bright colours. So today I wanted to share a few pieces that I love that celebrate pattern and colour for the summer months. First off is a recent purchase of mine, a jumpsuit that I bought from the Joe Brown Collection.
When you are plus size, finding the perfect jumpsuit can be an impossible task depending on your height, shape and the style that you are looking for. This jumpsuit is perfect for me. I love the bold pattern. At 5ft 5 I had to have the length adjusted so that I wasn't falling over the hem and I also replaced the button fastening at the back with a press stud. It is very easy to get on and off and I love it!
Next up is the dress for all occasions. This is on my current wishlist as it is the perfect hardworking dress that can cover you for many occasions. Again, this is a Joe Brown dress from Simply Be
This dress will cover you for everything from going to work in the summer months to that after work drink with the girls (that turns into a few cocktails on a Friday!) simply by a change of accessories and shoes. I would also wear this on a weekend for going out to lunch.
In September I am going to Grassington for their annual 40s weekend. After going last night and loving how everyone had dressed up, this year I decided to do the same. This is a dress that I have just purchased.
I love the dogwood print (which I confess I thought was cherry blossom when I first saw it). The fit is just right and I will share photographs of the weekend after the event. Now I just need to find the right shoes!
Lastly is a dress that is on my current wishlist from the Hell Bunny collection.
I really like the 50s style with a sexy twist. The length looks great and I am always a sucker for sweetheart neckline! This is on my wishlist for the moment as I do not (yet) have the right occasion to wear it. I may have to create one!
