No Filter by Grace Victory

I first discovered Grace Victory when she was part of a Nike campaign – I was so excited to see an amazing fat woman of colour repping for a fitness brand, and even more excited to find out that she was a fellow blogger/vlogger.

I think it’s really important to surround myself with positive influences, so I started following Grace on social media; I checked out her YouTube channel; and I watched the documentaries she made with BBC Three. You know when you make an awesome new friend and you want to spend all your time with them? That was how I felt View Post

Torrid Clothing Haul

My workwear picks

Plus size workwear

I get so many people asking me where to find plus size workwear that I thought I’d scout out some ideas for you. As you know, I work from home and my days of dressing for the office are over, but I do really enjoy helping other people finding clothes they feel confident and awesome in, so let’s do this.

There are a lot of different dress codes out there when it comes to office outfits – some people have to have their shoulders covered; some must wear a suit; some can be as out there as they like. Then there’s the combination of what you want to wear – a blouse and tailored trousers, a skirt with a top, a blazer, a matching suit, a dress, with stockings or without? View Post

Cold Shoulder

What is up with the cold shoulder trend in plus size clothing? Meagan Kerr wears Forever 21 Plus Open Shoulder Top

I’ve noticed a recurring trend in plus size fashion over the last five years and I think it’s time we had a talk about it. Cold shoulder is a trend that seems to be really polarising – you either love it (in which case congrats – there’s shitloads of it out there right now!) or you hate it. View Post
