In only a few days time I will be at Style XL, and I am so excited! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a plus size fashion event being held in Birmingham. It sounds like it’s going to be incredible, with so many wonderful brands and people.
Can I? Yes. I can. In case you’ve missed it, Oprah Magazine ran an advice column where a reader asked if she could “pull off a crop top”, and the response was an unequivocal no unless the reader had a flat stomach. As you can imagine, this caused an outcry.
I enjoyed drawing the last lot so much that I decided to do it again. So here’s round two.
I was having a little bit of difficulty with an illustration I was working on, and starting to get frustrated. I knew I needed to step away for a bit, but also needed to remember why I love drawing. So I decided to have some fun.
I was near a Matalan, and heard they had some cute stuff in right now, so thought I’d go find out for myself. I’d seen on their site that they do larger sizes, so figured I’d be on to a winner. How wrong was I?
I thought I’d write this as a post to refer back to when I do reviews, just so I’m not constantly repeating myself. Also I’m hoping it might serve as useful for manufacturers if they want to look at how disability can affect which products are bought.
I’ve toyed with doing this for a while, but never thought my work was good enough. However I’m learning to take pride in what I do, and thought it’d be good to give people the opportunity to buy it.
I have, very generously, been sent these Wingz to review. If you haven’t heard of them before they are a solution for when you are wearing something sleeveless but wish it had sleeves. Simple but effective. I chose to review the three quarter length stretch fitted Wingz.
In September 2010 I married my wonderful husband, and I thought I’d do a little post about it, primarily about my wedding dress which was completely hand made by me.
After seeing this fantastic video by A Curvy Cupcake, Debz decided to set a few of us a challenge to make ourselves our own Plus Size Promises. First, watch the video though! She’s an absolute star!
