Autumnal Style With Fashion World*

Hello it's time today to look at some fabulous pieces from Fashion World* which are perfect for the coming colder months.

Anyone who knows me will agree that I love a good cardigan as I love nothing more than layering up my clothes when the temperatures drop, especially as I am someone who starts off cold and gets warm later in the day!

If you are in the market for a new winter cardigan then look no further than Fashion World who have a wonderful selection that is sure to suit everyone.

I went with what is called a Kangaroo cardigan as I loved the curved edges and decent pockets and it is a good longer length so ideal over dresses and jeans.

I teamed this cardigan with a rather lovely shirt dress with a striking eyelet design and draw string waist. I sized up to a 20 in the dress as I was worried about it gaping across my top half but it is generously sized and with the drawstring waist I can nip it in so it doesn't look too oversized on me.
I am pleased to have found such a minimal style dress in a plus size as quite often this style of dress is only found in smaller sizes and best of all it has POCKETS!!I went for a size 16-18 in the cardigan and the sizing is brilliant it has plenty of room to manoeuvre and is a lovely soft material and I look forward to styling it with some of my skinny jeans and tops. Priced at £22 it won't break the bank and is going to be a staple of my wardrobe through the colder weather.
To finish of the outfit I chose a lovely burgundy handbag which I love it has a decent length strap meaning you can wear it across you or on your shoulder or just use it as a tote bag. It has quite roomy and easily fitted my purse. make up bag, phone and work paraphernalia that I have to carry around with me!!

Overall I think Fashion World have knocked it out of the park with their Autumn/Winter range for this year with some really stylish choices for the plus size market.

Hello October

Hello again I know it has been awhile since I last posted and it is now October, season of falling leaves, hot chocolate and of course Halloween!

As the seasons change so do my outfits and I wanted to share with you all a fab pinafore dress that I nabbed in Primark (they have a brilliant selection of them at the moment).

Even though I am 43 I still love a good pinafore dress as it reminds me of the navy blue cord one I used to wear when I was small (even then I loved them and that was alot for me as  I hated dresses when I was very young!!).

So firstly it has pockets- POCKETS all dresses should come with pockets! It is a lovely soft cord and doesn't feel restrictive when you move or sit down and I am pleased to say the buttons don't gape. I went for a size 20 and it has plenty of room I could have sized down but I have to fit my top half in and as you can see the bib doesn't really contain my boobs but then that is to be expected!!

I also picked up a top to go underneath which was a bargain £5 in an XL (they have new sizing and it is worth a look as some of the pieces are very generous in size). I have avoided these types of tops for years but took the plunge and I am glad I did!

Even my tights are Primark (100 denier) this year they seem to be much better made and don't fall down and are super long and very comfy and at £2.50 a pair well worth a try.

My trainers are from Everything Five Pound earlier this year and are so comfy for the price!

Have you found anything good in Primark lately- let me know!
