Outfit Inspiration Of The Month

Hey Lovely!

I wanted to share a round up of awesome outfits I have seen through out the month and some fabulous bloggers that are rocking them.

First up I adore this tulle skirt and crop top combo from Lottie. This girl has some serious style chic with just the right amount of edgy sass. It makes me scream for tutu skirts in my life,


I have been an avid reader of the ever beautiful Leah. This amazing lady not only brings wise words, ballsy advice and rock chic glamour but also breaks out gems like this beautiful rose gold dress leaving the plus community drooling and checking their bank accounts,


Stephanie always looks flawless and is creative with her fashion from cute and girly to edgy and cool. She also fights for diversity and is open and outspoken, all the qualities an inspirational lady needs, This outfit is super classy and shows crop tops are for everyone.


Next up is a lady who always blows my mind with her fabulous style from cat eyed glasses and quirky prints to some serious vintage glamour, Lolly was recently on TV too talking about plus size brides and is showcasing them right now on her blog so go check that out,


Another lady who is no stranger to a killer outfit is Nancy. Bringing some Christmas sparkle and in this beautiful dress and I am loving the new hair. Nancy always looks flawless.

#ootd - Sunshine On a Rainy Day

Hey Kittens,

Still going string on the 30 X 30 challenge and this time I want to talk about coordinates. I have been loving all the great coordinates springing up in the plus size fashion world. I have to say that Missguided are really leading this ball game though, If like me at first you sat and marvelled at how pretty they were but were scared of the crop tops, I urge you to push your fears aside and give it a try. I waited so long I missed out on the paint effect set until the amazing Toodaloo Katie had hers up for sale and I just knew I had to give it at least a try.


The crop top isn't too short and meets up with a beautiful full skirt. The material is scuba effect so falls just right and is so warm and comfortable even in this blustery weather. I love rocking bold colours on a cold day to bring a ray of sunshine to Birmingham streets. I also teamed it with my new cardigan which I featured earlier last week in this post. As the crop top started to rise I didn't care. Yes my flesh was on show and you know what? The world didn't fall apart and I never had any negative comments, I pushed myself out of that comfort zone and it felt amazing and I actually felt pretty damn powerful,


Later in the month I wore the skirt separately with a plain vest top and a little cardigan for a more demure. Keep an eye out to see how I restyled the crop top too,


 Do not be afraid to rock bright colours in the rain or push your own boundaries, I will definitely be snapping up some more crop tops and coordinates when I see them,

Have you pushed yourself out of your comfort zone lately?

#FridayFright- Ash Vs Evil Dead

Welcome Back Horror Heads,



Finally the day has come when Ash has returned to grace our screens, When I first heard they were making Ash Vs Evil Dead into a series I was both excited and nervous. Would they do it justice? Who would play Ash? I mean it wasn't a remake but a whole new adventure and that was something all dead heads had been dreaming of, Since the movies we have been having to get out fix in comics and other classic Bruce Campbell films like 'My name is Bruce' and 'Bubba Ho-Tep',  Whilst amazing films nothing quite hits the spot like some Evil dead action, Hearing that Both Sam Raimi and Bruce were on board meant the series could only be awesome...or had Raimi gone soft with all these Spiderman blockbusters he had been churning out? Then the trailer dropped...


The internet went crazy and horror fans all over the world connected in their excitement for the return of a legend, The series is almost on the fourth episode now and the reopening of the necronomicon was not in vain. The tongue in cheek humour of Ash will have you roaring with laughter. The heavy influence of 3 stooge jokes from the original films also trickles into the series with slap stick comedy that has kept audience weeping with laughter for generations,


There are plenty of scares and menacing evil jumping out through the show and each episode is jam packed with action. An introduction of new characters keeps the story fresh and brings a new element. The only downfall I can see thus far is that a mere 30 minutes once a week is far to cruel to avid fans of the genre who are left on the edge of their seats thirsty for more, I am excited to see where the journey takes us, roll on next episode,



Have you checked out Ash Vs Evil Dead yet? What did you think?

#ootd - Cute Skater Skirt - Capsule Wardrobe

Hey Sweethearts,

30 x 30 challenge is still going strong and I will give you a new mass outfit update very soon but until then I wanted to share about one of my favourite skirts. This is probably one of the skirts that gets rocked the most for me. A leather look skater skirt I picked up from Yours Clothing last year but being black is wearable in so many ways.

Here I teamed the skirt with leopard leggings, a lovely shoulder detailed top from forever 21 and a faux fur hat and muff both last year New look

If like me you have voluptuous hips the. Skater skirts are great. They flare out over  your hips and nip in at the waist enhancing those curves. Although booty babes beware they can come up a lot shorter which is why I usually sport mine with leggings.

For this look I sassed it up with some vintage inspiration a cute little polka dot top from Primark, Black cardigan also Primark but flowers in the hair, camera bag and necklace change the look up.

A good versatile skirt in your wardrobe can really diversify your wardrobe. Step away from the cozy jeans or easy to throw on dresses and once you find your perfect skirt you can rock it with different tops and accessories for a different feel to your look. You also would have seen me sport this skirt before on this style xl vlog.

Here I teamed the skirt with trusty leggings, Vans trainers, a lace peter pan collared top from Primark, The cardigan is Collectif gifted by a lovely friend and I flower crowned it up. 

As you can see I am really putting this skirt to full use for the 30 x 30 challenge. Teaming with 9 of my other items (including footwear). Do you have a favourite skirt?

Thanks for stopping by and don't be a stranger my sweets!

Voodoo Vixen Connie Dress Review

Hey Drapes,

It is no secret that I love Voodoo Vixen dresses as you have already seen me in them here and here. I purchased the Connie dress way back in the summer when it first came out. Now 30 x 20 challenge has given me the perfect excuse to show it off to you lovely readers.


I love the cut of this dress. Rocking a similar shape to their pink kitty dress. Nipping in at the waist and then flaring out for that real 50's rockabilly vintage vibe. I always feel really supported by these style of Voodoo Vixen dress because of the thick fabric that still has a little stretch.

My other dresses are still in great condition even after a year of constantly being worn and have kept their colour so I can only hope when washed this dress also keeps the gorgeous show stopping red,

I was drawn to the fabulous cat eyed specs print of this little number, A real kooky feel. Voodoo Vixen are quickly becoming the go to for unique prints on beautiful dresses.

Another thing I always rave about on dresses is pockets and not just pockets for show. Connie features two decent size usable pockets. Great for carrying that lippy around or even keeping your hands warm on the ever increasing cold days.

The dress did come with a little black belt and does have two little belt loops but I much preferred it without. There is a large zip up fastening down the back of the dress to make it easier to get in and out of.

A feature I loved about the Connie is the cute little puff sleeves, With sleeves that cute it would be a crime to wear a cardigan so break those arms out with pride. The peek a boo neckline shows just how sassy Connie really is.


I sported my cat sunglasses you saw in my last haul video because in this dress I felt like a part of a seriously bad ass girl gang. I love the cite little cat ears with the extra sparkle.

On Wednesdays We Wear Black

Welcome Back Creephearts,

As the trees slowly lose their leaves, the sky gets darker earlier and the chills creep in, it is time to wrap up. The blustery yet beautiful autumn weather calls out for layers, When I saw this luscious cardigan I couldn't fauxing believe my luck. There was only one left and in my size. For once Primark was on my side. I spotted it in the huge Manchester store which is quickly becoming my favourite. A good statement cardigan can do wonders for a simple wardrobe. I love colour as much as the next fierce fashion addict but sometimes my heart lusts for layers of black.


I teamed the cardigan with a long black vest dress top and leggings also from Primark, The hat was a steal on ebay and was mentioned back in this post. I love that there are not many buttons on this cardigan just a little hook eye at the beginning of the faux fur collar and a tie belt. Two big pockets to keep your mitts cozy in the drizzle and wind. It is so comfy and was only £15! You can check out the other goodies I picked up in my upcoming Primark haul over on my You Tube,


The faux fur is really soft and great quality and makes me feel super glamorous on a regular Wednesday weekday, Any glamour that can be injected into a mundane day can really boost your confidence and make you hold your head high. The cardigan is really comfortable without being too warm and bulky but light layers underneath always help.



I am wearing 4 of my 30 x 30 challenge items here, To find out more about this check out my previous post and check up on the other ladies,


Are you a fan of Faux collars? 

Until next time my sweets


30 in 30 - Working That Capsule Wardrobe

Hey Sweethearts,

Where has the year gone? Only a month away until Christmas and that means saving pennies. The only shopping that should be going down is to buy fabulous pressies for other people, Part of saving means diving into the wardrobe and 'shopping your stash' for bits that have gone unworn and creating a capsule wardrobe to get you through the thrifty month or even two if you are extra creative. Steph of Seeing Spots came up with a fantastic way to make use of what you already have, by creating the 30 items of clothing worn over 30 days challenge. Despite my tardiness to the party I have been doing exactly that. I haven't been buying many new clothes lately so it just seemed perfect to me,

I dug deep for mixing and matching and unworn items. I came up with skirts, coordinates, leggings, dresses and even included shoes for that extra challenge. If I am honest I struggled to find 30 every day items and for me this will get me out of the rut of wearing that same comfy dress religiously. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing tips I learnt to make that capsule wardrobe work for me. So join me on my journey. If you want to see all the items I picked out give me a shout and I will put a video together. 

Here are some of the outfits I rocked over the first few days. Keep and eye out for more from some of these.


Check out the other ladies taking part in the challenge over at.... 

Could you rock 30 items over 30 days?
