Being just a small fish in a very big pond, I always get a little nervous at attending these events, but I had a great time. If you love big, bold prints and unapologetic splashes of colour then this collection is well and truly for you.
There are two sides to the collection, the big, bold prints and a really funky knitwear collection (including a knitted skirt that I fell a little in love with). The collection was on display in the store and it was great to see loads of the bloggers and guests trying the items on - seeing them on bodies rather than hangers made a massive difference.
I'll be honest and say at first glance this collection isn't really 'me'. Don't get me wrong, I love the collection and I think it's amazing that Evans would take a massive leap into this, but I couldn't see anything when I looked on the website that I would wear. Now that I have seen the collection, felt the items and seen people wearing them, my views have definitely changed. I was always excited by this new Evans collection, but now I am excited because I can see how I would wear a few of the items - and I'll be investing when I get the chance for sure!
I love that plus size retailers are listening to the fact that we don't all want big tunic tops and trousers to flatter our figure. We want to stand out, we want figure hugging, fitted, bright patterns and everything that 'normal' fashion lovers want, hopefully the new Cut For Evans collection is the first step in the right direction to making this happen!
The event was great and I got to meet lots of my favourite bloggers which is always lovely!
Have you looked at the Cut For Evans collection? What are you loving about it?

Affordable - Evans Red Skater Dress
I love a skater dress and this one caught my eye because of the brightness of the colour. I love big, bold items of clothing and I think for less than £30.00 this is a great choice. I can see this skater dress put together with some nice bold jewellery and a big, sparkly belt to break up the colour a bit and give it a bit of glamour. You can buy this dress here.
Bargain - Scarlett & Jo Red Lace Yoke Tunic
I have yet to add anything by Scarlett & Jo to my own wardrobe, but so far I have only ever heard good things about them! I like the colour of this tunic but I also like the lace shoulder and sleeve as I think it gives the dress a lovely look about it. You could easily wear this to work and then out to after work Christmas drinks without feeling like you weren't dressed up enough - a bargain for £35.00. You can get this dress here.
Cash To Splash - Scarlett & Jo Raspberry Red Powerfit Dress
When the powerfit dresses were launched people didn't stop raving about them - in fact they proved so popular that Scarlett & Jo alongside Evans bought out the dresses in a whole range of new colours and patterns. As you know, I am a sucker for a bit of colour so these new dresses were right up my street! I haven't had the money to splash out on one of these yet, but they are most definitely on my 'must have' list. This red dress is lovely and I can really see it being worn to a Christmas party. It's only £45 so not a bad price for a dress at all. You can get this dress here.
Of course, Evans have loads more dresses on their site - and they aren't all red! Why not head over and see what catches your eye?
Have you bought any dresses for the up and coming party season yet?
