A Look At How Simple Fashion Should Be

When it comes to plus-size fashion one of the biggest bugbears of the ladies you'll talk to is the fact that they can't shop the same places as their smaller friends. Although the range of plus-size fashion choices has increased dramatically over reason years there is still quite a long way to go.

So, I decided to look into what options were out there and roped in my little sister to help me. Lisa is a size 10, so as you can imagine the differences in our bodies are quite drastic. I thought it would be interesting to see what choices we would have if we wanted to shop in the same places... First up Simply Be.

As Simply Be cater for sizes 12-32, as you can imagine they had plenty of choice! The lovely ladies at Simply Be offered to send us both a dress, to show just how versatile the brand is! We both chose the same dress as we wanted to showcase how different bodies can wear the same dress, look different but still look fab! 

AX Paris Coral Lace Waist Skater Dress



We both really liked the dress, it's a lovely colour. I would say that the material is very unforgiving and has no stretch at all, so if you do it make sure you size up once or twice. As you can see you can easily style it with either leggings or tights and it would work just as well.




I intend to feature a few brands where you can buy a range of clothing in different sizes, just to showcase how good plus size fashion can be - if you know where to look!

Thanks for reading & thanks to my little sister for letting me feature her, she's a beaut isn't she!?

A Sequin Surprise - The Fat Mermaid!

You probably know by now, when it comes to clothes - I love colour, I love shape and I love sparkles. When I first saw this dress on the Fashion World website, I loved it. It is everything perfect about a dress for the Christmas season - I was well and truly smitten! 



It seemed like the rest of the fatshion world was too - as blog posts, tweets and instagram posts came flooding in about the 'mermaid dress' and everyone was in love with it! 

A few weeks later, Fashion World contacted me and kindly offered to send me a dress of my choosing from their Christmas party dress range. I browsed through and there were some LOVELY offerings, but nothing that quite matched up to the mermaid dress that I had been lusting over! 

So.... I asked them to send me it - and I can tell you now, I was not disappointed!

Yes, the dress is bodycon, yes its covered in sequins which make a sound every time I move, yes it's green, yes it's short - but it is love!

I plan to wear the dress to a Christmas party, so I don't want to share photos of the whole dress just yet. So instead, here are some selfie photos of it - so you can see how happy I am with it! When it is styled properly, for the party in a couple of weeks I'll take some proper Outfit Of The Day posts so you can see the full thing.



They didn't have my size of dress, so I have sized down. This means it is a little shorter than on the models in the photo - but I don't mind that! It is quite tight (more than likely because of the sizing down) but it is fully lined and made from a thick material, which means it gives a nice shape rather than just clinging everywhere, which I know lots of people aren't keen on! 

If you're looking for a Christmas dress to make you stand out this Christmas, I can not recommend this dress enough!! You can buy the AX Paris dress here.

Have you have any exciting purchases for the festive season?
