Cutesey cutesy pony day feat. My little ‘My little pony’ Jumper

Cutesey cutesy pony day…
The whole reason I started this blog was to say a massive F U to clothing sizes.
In this outfit of the Day I have on a my little pony jumper that I picked up in Primark, this jumper is a UK size 20 and I am not!
The jumper is tighter than perhaps the designers had imagined it should be but I really like it and don’t feel uncomfortable in it at all.
I wore this out fit to the Plus London Plus size market evening last month
I wore my Bete Noire Unicorn necklace with it which I think looked really cute together.
Sticking to the theme I have on Airborne Unicorn lipstick from lime crime.
I’m wearing a waffle skater skirt that I got in the Pink Clove sale for only a fiver.
I have on my Camden boots from new look and a pair of tights.
Please guys… tell me about any places you have found where you can completely disregard the size labels, I’m very interested to know.
I love turning oversized items in to Lucia sized items! <3
Once again… thanks for reading x

OneOneThree Fashion Show and my OOTN

OneOneThree Fashion Show and my OOTN
Recently I have been going to as many fashion events as I can, so when I heard about the oneonethree fashion show that was taking place on Monday I made sure I got tickets. I was already aware of the brand and have a few pieces from their current collection so I was excited to see what they had coming next.
As you are all aware I tend not to pay too much attention to clothing sizes and generally wear whatever I like, oneonethree pieces go up to a size 26 in most of their items and I wear a size 30/32 but the items of theirs that I do have fit very well.
Group shot of the models in the collection. 
Unfortunately I was unable to get very many pictures of the collection due to lighting etc.. but I’m sure there will be pictures of the collection available through social media.
The collection was very punk rock inspired (well at least it appeared that way to me) I liked the edginess of the collection and am really looking forward to seeing how people style some of the individual pieces. I feel the collection leaves a lot of room for interpretation which can be excellent for appealing to a wider demographic.
I saw a lot of leather and tartan on the catwalk and felt like I fit right in with my red and black ASOS curve midi skirt and new look leatherette jacket.
My crop top is a piece I got from H&M last year and is a UK size 16 (u cant wear that! lol)
The top is advertised and sold as over size which means that it fits me perfectly as a ‘my size’ crop top.
I love this top that reads ‘Find me backstage’ which is really appropriate as I am a makeup artist by trade and am usually found backstage at events like this.
Me in the venue
I am wearing my simply be extra wide calf fitting boots as it was absolutely freezing that evening.
 
This is a picture of me with my younger sister, who I took along with me to the show. I kept the makeup simple with winged liner and a classic red lip, MAC’s RiRi Woo  
Thought I would throw in my Instagram filtered pic as I really like it, this was taken while waiting for the doors to open for the show.
The show took place at the Metalworks in Angel, Islington.
There was a piece in the collection that I absolutely loved, Its a multicoloured (what almost looks like stained glass) jersey maxi dress. Unfortunately I don’t have a pic of it but I will definitely blog about it when its up on the site.
Thank you all for reading once again xxx

Blooming good tights!

Blooming Good Tights! 
Last week I was really kindly sent a pair of cotton tights from The Big Bloomers Company, I was really excited about this because this is the first time I have ever seen thick cotton tights available in such a large size. Normally tights that are advertised as being in my size I still struggle with but I was assured but Laura from the company that they are really really stretchy. …And they are… when I received them and took them out of the packet I was so surprised at just how much stretch there was to them and because they are so thick the they don’t turn transparent.
These are so perfect for the cold months that we are experiencing at the moment.
The tops of my legs are massive and I thought I would have trouble getting the tights up high enough, the brief part of the tights could have come up higher but that is purely due to my mega thighs but is not a issue for me at all as I wont be wearing them with any mini skirts lol
The waistband of the tights are pulled up really high and is really stretchy and comfortable and is not tight at all in the slightest.
I got these tights in the largest size available as I wear a size 32 and they are perfect, they are so comfortable and well made, I wasn’t concerned about ruining them while putting them on or sitting down carefully so I didn’t burst out of them lol
These tights have provided me with a welcome break from wearing leggings with everything and I still get to have warm legs.
I am not a fan of thin tights at all as they always end up being one wear only as by the end of the night I have destroyed them. These cotton tights are a welcome addition to plus size fashion if you ask me and I will be shouting about them from the mountain tops!
I would say that this is the best pair of tights that I have ever owned and will be getting another pair asap.
They have solved a problem for me that I know a lot of plus size women have, especially women at the higher end of plus size like I am.
What other items would you all like to see available in plus size hosiery??
I’d quite like to see more patterned tights available in bigger sizes <3

A little late to the party!

Last weekend I had a nice little night in planned with my good friend Debz, a Wannabe Princess.
I dressed super casual, no makeup, ready for evening of Chinese food, snacks a plenty and a couple of DVD’s…. Silly me!!!!
I should know better than anyone just how impulsive and up for a night of fun Debz is. This is a pic story of how I went from casual night in, to Oh God we are off on a night out and I have no clothes or makeup!!!!!!!


 

How I looked when I turned up for our night in!

Never in my life have I been so grateful to have a fellow fatty as a friend!!!!! 
With permission of course, I headed off to Debz wardrobe in the hopes of finding something that I would wear with my trusty and ever so comfy Primark snuggly boots, and was still suitable for an impromptu night out with the gays.
I had completely forgot that she owned this dress and when I spotted it, it was a total ‘I hear angels singing’ moment.
 
When this dress was released on the Pink Clove website I fell in love wuth it (along with every other fat bird on the planet) As everyone was purchasing it I opted for the skater skirt in the same print, which I still love.
As soon as I put the dress on I hated myself for not buying it, I went straight for my phone and onto the Pink Clove website to buy one and being the unlucky lady that I am they no longer have this dress on their website :(  
Absolutely adore this dress…and the extreme boobage lol
Ok so with an outfit sorted I still had to make something out of my bare face. Luckily The Princess have a truckload of makeup which I got to play it and make myself look presentable. The only problem I had was not having any skin make up i.e. foundation or concealer. But I made do and did a sweet beat on myself.   
Make up I did for my night out- no skin makeup and eyeshadow done using my fingers lol.
I had an amazing night by anyone’s standards and am so glad we decided to go out in the end, again having a friend that wears the same size clothes as I do is a bloody miracle that I am oh so grateful for.
Has anyone had nights like this where you have to throw yourself together and are still really happy with the outcome?
do you have plus size friends that you can share clothes with?
I would love to hear similar stories to this as this was definitely new to me, but something I think could be fun to do again.
As always Thanks for taking the time to read Honeys xxx

My personal best bargain ever!

I recently went to the Plus London plus size market evening. I was really excited to be going as a seller and a bargain hunter.  I was initially concerned that I wouldn’t find anything fat enough for me but fortunately I left with quite a few pieces that I will be sharing with you over the coming posts here.
This one I have to say I am the happiest with, it is such a versatile piece and I want to wear it all the time with everything and in my eyes that is reason enough to warrant a blog post all of its own.
However the best part is that I picked it up for only 50p.
I’m gonna say that one more time because even I still can’t believe it… I got this beautiful maroon oversized and deliciously comfy cardi FOR JUST 50p!!!!
It is a Jeffrey and Paula slouch cardigan that I bought from fellow blogger Chattermonkey (check out her blog here)
She initially showed it to me because it was one of her items that was roomy as I approached her table saying “Show me the mega fat stuff!”
I have to admit I bought it because it was big enough and because it was an absolute steal at fifty pence. However when I got it home and had a try on and a good look at the shape I was sooooooo excited.  I love the slouchyness of it and how I am able to just throw it on with anything and I also love the colour.

OOTD Pink clove wrap dress.

I placed an order with Pink Clove around Christmas and one of the items I picked up was the Geo print wrap dress.
I thought about this item quite a lot before I ordered it as it’s not really my style, it’s very grown up and sophisticated but I really really like the colours in the dress for winter.
Thought I would do a quick OOTD post about this dress as it’s still only £10 in the pink clove sale!!!!

OOTN – Rent review by a fatshion blogger.

Last night I went to see Rent on stage at the Hackney Empire in My home town of London.  I have been a massive (pun intended) fan of rent for a while now, I have the dvd of the Broadway play and the dvd movie. When I heard from a friend that Rent in concert was showing in London for 3 nights I nearly had a fit so we booked tickets for the next night. Every which way I have seen Rent my favourite character has always been ‘Angel’, A beautiful transvestite who I think just seems like so much fun and is funny as all hell. I love musicals but don’t really get to see shows as much as I would like. Rent was one that I HAD TO SEE! The songs in this show are fantastic and there is not a single one that I don’t like which is not something I never say even with regular albums there are usually a couple of dud tracks…not in Rent (I had to sing along to all the songs really quietly lol) one of my favorite songs is “I’ll cover you” a duet between characters Angel and Collins, it’s the loveliest this ever so obviously I was crying like a baby during the whole song, mostly because I knew what was coming.

Seeing this play was one of the best experiences in my personal theatre history. As soon as it finished I vowed that I am going to see it again. 12 hours later I already have plans to see Rent again for my birthday in July in Derby, unfortunately I believe it will be a different cast. 

The voices in this production were absolutely sensational I was particularly impressed with Kerry Ellis playing ‘Mimi’ and Rory Taylor playing ‘Roger’, I have to say that Roger had never stood out vocally for me in the Broadway production or in the movie so I was very very pleasantly surprised to hear Rory Taylor’s voice last night. 

Of course ‘Angel’ being my favourite character I was hoping to be wowed by his vocals… and boy was I. Angel did not disappoint at all which had me smiley like a damn Cheshire cat. After the play finished and I had dried my eyes I headed out to my bus stop with my friend and sister, my sister spotted Ian Stroughair (Angel Dumott Schunard) pop out for a fag…so what did I do??? Took off running through traffic of course!!!! Well worth it it turns out as I got to have a picture with actor Ian Stroughair (below) 

It was definitely a night to remember and will not be my last outing to see Rent. 

oh yeah!!! Just remembered I’m a fashion blogger and not a theatre critic haha.
gonna keep this really short and simple… I wore my glove print skirt that l picked up in the evans sale just after xmas. I wore it with a roll neck t-shirt from new look inspire and a brand new pair of knee high boots from Simply Be that have larger calf widths. I will talk more about the boots in a separate post as they are the first pair I have been able to find to fit my massive calves. Then chucked on my Evans gold studded biker jacket cos its freezing in London at the moment.

Plus London market bargain!

On Friday evening I went to the Plus London plus size market evening. I signed up to be a seller and initially I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t think there would be many people as big as I am buying or selling.
I was pleasantly surprised that there was plenty there for me and I made out like a bandit.
One item in particular I picked up before the event even started, I bought from fellow blogger naomi from diamonds ‘n’ pearls.  A lovely beige cropped new look jumper for £3. The day after the event I was travelling up north for a couple days so I chucked the jumper and a scarf I picked up for 50p in with the rest of my luggage.  I was sooo happy with the jumper I ended up wearing it all the time with everything.  Kinda handy that it was freezing up in Derbyshire so I got to wear the hell out of the jumper. I’m surprised the jumper fit so well as its a size 24 and I’m not lol. I’m guessing it was made to be really oversized but I really like the way it fits! 

I think the plus size market was such a good idea there were so much clothes and accesories and I would definitely take part again. I picked up so many pieces that i’m extremely happy with and will be blogging about over the next few days.

Christmas Party Dress

I was really kindly offered a dress from Fashion Worlds dress selection and as I already had my eye on a beautiful sequin AX Paris Curve dress it wasn’t difficult for me to choose.

I was so excited when the dress came and I was not disappointed at all. Its such a beautiful piece. I like the fact that the sequins are not super shiny which means I don’t look like a disco ball and would be happy to wear it any time of the year.

The AX Paris Black Sequin Prom Dress is the perfect fun and flirty party dress.
I thought  would team this review up with a ‘ways to wear’ post so I have styled this dress two different ways.

I first kept it really simple with sheer black tights and cute black kitten heels from yours.

I wouldn’t be able to wear this dress bare legged as it comes up quite short on me so I tried it on with a pair of sheer tights and I think it looked really cute.

I am very clumsy with tights especially since I have stiletto nails… the two don’t really work hand in hand together so I tend to stay away from tights.. this was confirmed a good idea when I laddered them putting them on

laddering my tights provided the perfect opportunity for me to find an alternative way to wear this dress as I know after a couple of drinks and going to the ladies room my tights would be left in shreds.
I reached for a faithful friend, a pair of leggings, which I think was perfect since the weather is so cold and there is no chance of me ripping them with my nails. I wore the dress with black leggings and my Camden boots from new look with a big chunky gold necklace from Primark.
New look Biker Jacket.

I personally prefer the ‘Rocked up’ version of this dress, I think it all depends on what you feel comfortable in but I do think there are many ways to wear this dress as its another take on a Little Black Dress and is a really nice addition to my wardrobe as I have nothing else like it.

What are you guys wearing this party season?

Squiggles n Boots

Baby Shower Oufit Of The Day

This dress is an ex ASOS item, This year I have been obsessed with the skater dress shape. ASOS has a huge range of skater dresses in their Curve department and I will forever be grateful for this :-)

I believe this one was called the squiggle print, I may be wrong, Its white with black, blue and purple patterns, Its in jersey fabric and is so comfortable and roomy.

 



One this particular day I wore it with New Look leggings and my new New Look Camden Boots

I absolutely love these boots, they have a few variations of these but I personally preferred the black on black. They are called Camden boots and I would simply describe them as heeled workman boots.

I had very simply makeup as I was attending a daytime event and I wore a chunky silver chain from Primark.

 

 
I wore my New Look Biker Jacket and my Washed Leather Handbag from TopShop.
 
I really liked this whole outfit, It was super comfy and casual but I still felt like I had made an effort.
 
Thanks for reading guys xx
