I don’t know what’s happened but I can’t get enough of pink and coral. Maybe it was my beloved winter coat that inspired me, but I’m really enjoying shades of pink at the moment. I even went as far as acquiring some sugary hot-pink lipgloss from Revlon, and I haven’t worn lipgloss for years. Ooops, I’m wearing a lot of ASOS today, too…

After all this time, I still have a soft spot for Morrissey. I know he’s a shit, don’t worry. It’s just that the Smiths and his solo stuff has been very important to me for a long time now, and I’ve never stopped loving the music. My pal Harry, who I alternately refer to as the love of my life, the apple of my eye etc, hates Morrissey with a burning passion, but I suppose love really does conquer all. When I tweeted about desperately wanting a Morrissey Christmas jumper, who stepped up and ordered me one? None other than the great Morrissey-hating Harry. True love.
I think this is the first time I’ve done an outfit post without makeup, actually. I wore this yesterday, the day after the club night I co-run, to go for our ritual post-Dancing On My Own lunch at Dragon Castle on Walworth Road, and let me tell you I was not feeling like getting dolled up. It felt like a perfect opportunity for the Moz sweater to make its first outing…

If wearing these trousers and this coat together is wrong I don’t wanna be right. I’ve fallen in love with both of them and feel I’m going to get extremely regular wear out of these delicious items. I’ve wanted some shaggy fake fur outerwear for a while (as opposed to the sleek, shorter fake fur stuff I’ve seen around) and I’m so, so glad Simply Be stepped in and made my wish come true!

And I enjoyed the sunglasses with MAC lipstick in Russian Red, like so.
A couple of days ago I went to check out Evans’ offerings for spring / summer 2014 (yes, already!). The most exciting thing on show was their Cut for Evans collection, designed by students from leading fashion colleges and universities across the country. I’ll do a proper post on it when the collection launches in February, but I just wanted to give everyone a look at my favourite pieces, and to say this: I am amazed, excited and enthusiastic about this collection, and I wholly support it as long as between now (me seeing the samples) and the launch of the collection, these designs don’t get watered down or the number of items significantly reduced. Got it, Evans?! Because if they can follow through on what I saw at the press day, then it’s basically going to be the best thing that’s happened to mainstream plus size fashion since the Beth Ditto collection.
Also from Evans’ S/S14 range (but not from Cut for Evans) are these beauties. I am dying to get my hands on the black top with the green faux-necklace! There was a lot to like here, and it felt considerably fresher than past offerings.
Hello friends! I often get so many compliments on my houndstooth Gok Wan for Simply Be underwear so when I had the opportunity to acquire some more, I jumped at the chance. The bra is super reliable and comfortable, and I’m just obsessed with the print of the cool under-skirt thing. I know I look deliciously lumpy here, and I’m posting this to show that’s ok, pals! It’s ok if nothing can smooth you into a ‘perfect hourglass’, this stuff can also be FUN! I don’t usually go in for shapewear but when it’s this cute I can definitely get on board. It’s even got suspender bits! Now, can anyone help me source some hold-ups in size fat?
