The Iconic Review and Try On Haul

The Iconic plus size clothing haul and review // 17 Sundays Cross Back Dress

I really love a store where I can go in and get things from lots of my favourite brands (and find new ones), because it saves time, shipping and basically makes life super easy for me. One place you can do that is The Iconic, you’re probably already familiar with it because I do link to them regularly and I’ve got an affiliate banner for them in my sidebar a lot of the time, but I’ve never actually bought from them (only directly from the brands they stock). In the interest of blog research (and because I saw they were having a sale) I decided to try them out so I could report back on what their service was like, and check out some of the brands that I’ve never tried before. Apparently they have over 700 brands, which is just … woah. View Post

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

Winter Coats

Plus size coats for cold, windy and wet winter weather

Ahh winter. Depending on where you are, it can be cold, windy, or wet… and if you live where I do it can be all three in one day! I’ve had lots of people asking me about coats for winter (especially waterproof ones!), so I’ve done a bit of hunting and found options for all kinds of weather. Grab a cup of tea and take a look.

Ankle boots for autumn

Autumn 2016 ankle boots for wide feet

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of ankle boots – I pretty much wear them from the beginning of autumn to the end of spring … and sometimes I wear them in summer as well. I’ve got a few requirements – they need to be flat, they need to be comfortable, and they need to fit my chunky ankles. My feet aren’t super wide but they are flat so I prefer the wider fit ones for comfort View Post
