Footwear Woes with Evans Clothing.




Top: Made by me. Leggings: Matalan. Necklace: Black Heart Creatives. Clutch Bag: Gift. Shoes: c/o Evans Clothing.

I'm back with a new post for you in featuring footwear from Evans Clothing. They recently got in touch with me and asked if I'd be interested in working with them on a campaign about the problems us girls with wide feet often have and I snapped at the chance as I always struggle with shoes! I answered a questionnaire then I got to try a pair of shoes that would hopefully compete with my woes some of which were:

1. I genuinely have very wide feet, they remind me of a ducks.
2. Heels aren't really my friends, within ten minutes I'm usually crying.
3. I have a high instep so often straps across my feet won't work or will really cut in.

So Evans popped across these contrast scrappy heels. Which do include everything I tend to avoid in footwear. The low heel makes them easier to walk in mostly and I know from experience that Evans size 5EEE are pretty on point for me so they do fit well.  My only issues are that they do still cut in a little across my toes (however this is from first wear, When I wear them in around the house in fluffy socks I'm sure they'll be fine!) and the zip on the heel which makes them a dream to put on, no fiddly buckles(!) does however catch my ankle slightly, again though once worn in I don't think this would be any problem! I styled the shoes with my bardot top I created myself which was originally a skirt from the charity shop, my new lips clutch bag which was a birthday present from my babe Jess at college and the 3 lipstick necklace from one of my favourite jewellery designers Black Heart Creatives! P.S sorry for the lens smudge on my second photo, I really struggled getting snaps due to the sun though it does make it a nice change from blaming the rain! 

What are you footwear woes? You can see Evans full selection of shoes here.

Summer Lace - SheIn Review.







Lace Top: c/o SheIn. Swimsuit: Asos Curve. Bag: H+M. Sandals: Simply Be. Skirt: Handmade by me. Fat Babe Earrings: Black Heart Creatives. Sunglasses: c/o Specspost

I'm not really sure what's happening with this outfit but I'm really loving it! The hair is maybe a little bit 80s as is the lipstick but I'm still feeling it! Again I'm sorry for the slight radio silence but with my fashion show now been and gone (I'll get photos up as soon as I can as I'd love to show you my graduate collection!) 

I was sent this cute lace number from SheIn (formally known as She Inside) who I've heard of for quite sometime and seen them featured on a number of straight sized blogs but I was a little wary due to the sizing so I decided to go for something that looked over sized and in the largest size available which was a XL. I'm pleasantly surprised at how utterly lovely this top is! It can be worn as a beach cover up or as a sheer tunic/top which I've done both above. What else I wasn't prepared for was that it felt nice, cheap lace can sometimes feel scratchy and irritating but this doesn't at all. I'm now really looking forward to trying some other pieces from SheIn if I get the chance to so to prove that plus size girls can also shop there! The shoes also look pretty fabulous but alas I have really wide feet! 

I styled this up with a swimsuit from Asos Curve which I do love but just wasn't sure how to wear it! Funnily enough I think I'm more into "Fatkinis" than swimsuits something I never thought I'd be saying as up until a year ago it wouldn't have been anything but a one piece! I also bought myself this bag as a little birthday treat as I've been after one for ages! (I also had one as a kid and I'm happily relieving that now!) 

So what do you think? Shall I wear this out during the summer?

Polka Dots and Poodles.




Peplum Top: c/o George at Asda. Jeans: Matalan. Necklace: Me and Zena. Clutch: Asos. Shoes: Evans.

I took these photos far to long ago but with my massive graduate hand in and the after math of a weddings and my brother and his girlfriend staying for a week I've only just had the chance to sit down and finally write a blog post. Unfortunately I am pretty behind on posts and have an array of fabulous things to show you which I'm hoping to get posted over the next few weeks so please do bare with me. I'm a little refreshed and hopefully have my blogging mojo back!

This style of top is one of my favourites for summer, long enough to pair with leggings for a comfortable look but can equally be dressed up with denim and heels for a less casual look like I've done here. In this I sized up to a UK22 as I like them to be looser for the warm whether and it also means that the top would be longer on me making sure it covered my crotch for wearing with leggings! The back of the neck also have a really lovely scoop and tie at the back which I unfortunately couldn't master getting a decent photo of! I decided to finish the look by mixing prints in the form of this cute clutch back I picked up on sale at Asos (a bag I'll probably use for photos but rarely out as I like to carry a lot of crap around with me!), denim to break up the dark colours and cute hair and make up, which was from a shoot I did at HMS Vintage and can't WAIT to show you when I get a chance! 

Again sorry for the radio silence but I'm glad to be back and I hope you're glad too!
