Evans Bloggers Party Edit.

Last week you may have noticed from my excessive amount of Instagram posts that I was on a shoot with Evans. Myself, George and Danie were asked to be involved in some filming for the Evans Style for your Shape Studio showing you what Evans have to offer for the party season. We had so much fun and it was great to be on the camera with my favorite girls, as you can imagine we had such a ball and the location of the shoot was just so perfect (so many props to use for Instagram pictures!) We each chose three party looks that reflected our own personal style as well as a fun Christmas Jumper and PJ shoot which I will share with you later. I thought I would show you my three chosen looks for the shoot and explain why I chose them as well as give you guys an exciting chance to win one of my looks by entering my giveaway below.

Look One - Metallics 

I chose to this bronze shell top with the tube skirt and simple black booties as I am absolutely loving metallics right now. The colours remind me of Christmas and this look could easily be worn to work in the day then taken from day to night adding heels.

This second look is perhaps my favorite, you all know I love a good pair of Skinny Jeans and these are such a good buy and a little bit different to wear to a party. Adding the glittery top and shoes this outfit went from something I could wear to work to a night on the razzle dazzle.

Look Three 

The final look I chose was the my ultimate party dress. Yes another glittery number, I just cannot resist, all black with some sparkle is always a win for me. Subtle party looks are more my thing and of course everything is made better with a Biker Jacket. This black and grey number is just perfect and a great way to make an outfit like this look a little more casual.

Stories... by Kelly Osbourne Polka Dot Jumpsuit.

As promised here is the second feature of the two items I tried from the Kelly Osbourne fashion line. You all know I love a jumpsuit, they have been featured on here many of a time but this Polka Dot Jumpsuit really stood out to me. I loved the style of the sleeves and the elasticated waist and knew it would work well with my body shape. The style of the plunging neck line really added some sass to the jumpsuit whilst also having a popper for those less comfortable showing their chest. In terms of sizing the range comes up large, my usual size is a UK 22 which is the equivalent to a 2XL and when that size arrived it was actually way to big for me, The 1X (UK 18/20)  however fitted perfectly so I would say that those bigger than a 3XL could be able to fit into this. Aesthetically this ticks all the boxes for me and basically I am obsessed with it, it feels very me and I felt really good wearing it! My only issue (it really is tiny and preferential) is that I wish the leg was in a more peg style, personally I prefer to have an ankle length but that can easily be achieved with rolling the fabric which as you can see I did. I have taken photos both with the legs rolled and unrolled for reference. So tell me what you think... do you like the Stories range? Does it tick your style boxes?

Stories... by Kelly Osbourne.

So often I see celebrity collaborations that I absolutely adore, that tick everyone of my style dream boxes except, they usually never fit me. It sucks, because sometimes my size feels like a limitation and that I am excluded from enjoying beautiful, well put together fashion. When Kelly Osbourne launched her Kelly Osbourne range I was excited to hear that she was making her clothes in a full range of sizes from 0- 24 (US) It was so refreshing to hear that she felt passionately that women of all sizes deserved to enjoy fashion.

The line itself is just perfect, so many plus size girls cry out for the options to have the same clothing as their slimmer friends, well this, is just that. I love that the line includes basic wardrobe essentials like the Moto Jacket (which I think is an item that goes perfectly with everything), gorgeous jumpsuits, dresses, right through to simple graphic tees which are cool, easy to wear and most importantly comfy. So you can imagine my excitement when I received an email from Kelly's representation saying that Kelly would love for me to try some of her line. Girls, I nearly lost it! Kelly Osbourne is a mega babe and her line is just everything so it was an obvious yes. I thought I would show you in two posts what I chose and how I wore it. First up is the Chapter One Graphic Tee. I love the simplicity that this tee provides, I decided to pair mine with a polka dot skirt, over sized pastel coat and chunky black boots. Dan and I went for a wander in Notting Hill and it seemed like the perfect place to snap some pictures, after all Kelly is a London born girl so what better place to show off her gorgeous line than in one of London's prettiest places.

Boyfriend Shirt.

When you read articles about plus size fashion it is often geared towards flattering curves, clinching in the waist, highlighting your shape, All though I love a good body con every now and then I also don't always want to be in a dress. As a plus size woman you don't always have to be looking for a way to show off your figure. Personally I love wearing over sized and more masculine outfits and sometimes I want to look like a bad biker babe, so for this outfit I did just that.

I built this outfit using an over sized white boyfriend shirt  from Simply Be which created a shirt style dress. The length is a little too short to go completely bare legged and I wanted to add some edge to the look so I added a black skirt underneath and some knee high socks. I get asked about these often as I have worn them here on the blog before. I picked these up in H&M in size XL and they fit me fairly well, If you do manage to get your hands I pull them over the knee (they tend to roll down if not) and slightly folded where they stay nice and comfortably. Of course I finished the look off with my trusty Moto jacket and some killer dark red lippy which really completed the look and voila Biker Babe realness was created.

Better Late...

Can someone tell me where exactly time has gone this year. Since when is it October and since when is it nearly Christmas? Time seems to be flying and weeks are blurring into each other, so much so that I can barely remember what I did from one week to the next. These photos have been on my computer for a month just sitting there being like 'Hey I am cute use me'. With having a bunch of my fav girls over from the US for two weeks as well as working and events I got a bit slack with my blogging but fear not with Autumn here (my favorite season ever) I plan on getting my blogger game face on with some excellent A/W outfits. This outfit is my easy fail safe.  Motto jacket, skirt, tee and boots, you can't really go wrong to be honest. Throw on a good statement necklace, hair up in a messy bun and boom casual outfit done,

Plus Size Skinny Jeans.

The hunt for the perfect skinny jean continues and as many of us girls know jeans can be a royal pain in the backside. As Autumn is fast approaching the season of the jean is back in, well for me any way. I love a good pair of black skinny jeans, they are a perfect throw on for an easy chill outfit. When choosing an outfit for the Evans Collective Catwalk last week I decided to opt for something really easy, clean and fashionable so skinny jeans, a vest, motto jacket and heels seemed like a good look. An all black outfit always is a win for me as you can add colour, layers and accessories to add extra oompf which is exactly what I did with this Topshop hair scarf. Yellow is such a happy bright colour and it certainly made me feel like I wasn't blending in among all the other gorgeous Fashion babes at the event.
