Transition trends from Curvissa

All though the last few days have been glorious, we have to face the fact that unless we have an Indian summer, we have probably seen the best of the hot and sunny weather.

For me this is the worst time of the year to dress for. Still a tad warm for full on winter attire but not warn enough for strappy vests and no tights. So when I received an email from Curvissa this week I was excited to have a look at a few items from the A/W 12 range soon to be launch.



My favourite items are the Cardigan and the Mustard Jacket and the bag, I would love to have them all in my winter wardrobe!

From what I have seen so far, Plus Size brands have really upped the anty this year, and Curvissa is no exception. I could go crazy, and bankrupt, this winter!

What do you think? Do you like the transitional period between season?

Supermarket clothing ranges are one of my fave places to shop. Their ranges are pocket friendly and the lines are up dated almost weekly!

On a recent trip to my local Tesco I spotted this dress and had to have it! If it looks familiar it's because some one wore the same dress to Plus North!

I got the dress in my usual size 22. It's a tad to big but love it anyway.

It was ├╝ber comfy and I got comments on it all day!







Dress - £10 Tesco
Cardi - £12 Asda

A special thank you to Simply Be. From venue hire, Models outfits (which they got to keep!) and outfit for me and Becky. THANK YOU!!!!

A weekend of fun Pt1

As most of you are aware, Saturday was mine and Becky's big event, PlusNorth. Before the event really got going I met few of the bloggers already in Leeds!

My weekend started on Thursday night when I met the fabulous Caroline and Kathryn for the Nelly Shoe Event.

Held at the stunning Oracle Bar in Leeds, Nelly was offering the first 150 girls in a free pair of shoes!!! Yes, a free pair!

As I would actually be late to my own funeral, Caroline and Kathryn were right at the front of the queue when I arrived. We want to be inside the first 100 in as we got a goody bag! Once we were let in, it was shoe heaven!!!! The shoes were unfortunately behind glass but they were still stunning!











Apart from the Kim and and Fabulous, I cant remember what my third choice was, so watch this space.

We left around 10am with our goody bags, which were actually worth waiting for, it contained two magazine and a pair of thongs!!! Yes, you read that bit right, and went for some food at Frankie and Benny's. The food was lush and the company was outstanding!!!

Caroline and Kathryn are absolute stars! I also took there bra advised, going from a 44DD, as told by a High St Store, to a , well I think a 38G but I need the girls to check the next time i see them! I didnt realise how uncomfortable my bra was!!!!

The night ended with all 3 of us going to my flat and swapping colours and looking at tights and socks!
