Not So Joyful July: Another Spending Ban

Thanks to an amazing ASOS sale and some lovely dresses from Yours Clothing I managed to buy quite a few new items in June... Some of the items I haven't even worn yet! When Abi suggested on Facebook that others join in with her July spending ban I thought I would join in too! 

Some of these dresses (and many more) are just to beautiful not to be worn again!

I have so many pretty dresses and outfits that don't get enough wear and I am too easily tempted by colourful patterns and bargain dresses. So I thought I would join in and use July to have a big summer clear out of the clothes that I have. I am sure I have dresses that haven't been worn in a year or so, so I'll be deciding what to do with those.

So... Every Monday (or at least a couple of times this month) I'll be posting a #MoneySavingMonday post about what I have worn that week, what clothes I have sorted out and what gems I have forgotten about and re-fallen back in love with - which I know we'll all do!

There is a few bloggers taking part so make sure you have a read of their posts and see what they're up to as well!

Are you ever tempted by self-imposed spending bans, do they work for you?

Plus Size Clothing - You Do Have Options!

Over the next few weeks I have a number of different posts planned, all around the topic of plus size fashion and the choices you/I/we have. Over the past year I have noticed a definite change in the way plus size retailers work and the options that they present us... Yet, I still see people on Facebook (and other places) talking about being a size 20 and having no where to shop or a size 28 and not being able to find the dress they want for a party! It makes me sad that there are still people who feel like this - simply because I used to be that girl! 

Now a days you can find retailers like New Look, Yours Clothing and ASOS Curve who have items that directly match and rival what is being offered by 'standard' size fashion retailers. Even the likes of new-comers Pink Clove and Boohoo are really saying something and to me, that is fantastic news for plus size women everywhere!

Over the next few weeks I'll be exploring plus size retailers that offer items in sizes 12 right up to a size 36! I didn't realise just how many retailers offer options for all sizes, but they really do! You have the likes of Simply Be where you can a dress in a size 12 or a size 32 (and all combinations in between) and Yours Clothing who have around 200 items on their website up to a size 36. 

Of course, you could argue that we still have a long way to go - the current Boohoo Plus range 'only'' going to a size 24 for example... But we're getting there and it is pretty exciting to see!

So... Before I get onto those blog posts I wanted to remind you that I have a list of plus size retailers here on this very page. Over the past 12 months I have pieced together a list that now has over 50 PLUS SIZE RETAILERS LISTED! That's 50 retailers for you to choose from who all stock plus sizes!

If you're reading this blog then the chances are you're already well aware that you do have options, but I want to let women everywhere know that they do have places to shop. So please, share this blog post, share my link and share the little button above. It can make such a difference to a plus size woman to know that she has clothing options and it is us that can make it happen!

Where are your favourite places to shop?
