Dress: c/o River Island. Belt (worn as hairband) c/o Boohoo. Clutch Bag (old) Next. Shoes: Bought on Holiday.

Seeing as Party Season is slowly creeping upon us I thought now would be a good time to share this beautiful red dress with you all. Even though I took these photos when it wasn't quite so chilly! This is the kind of dress that I'd lust over in a shop and on other people but never dare to think I could carry off myself so when River Island gave me the opportunity on the Curve Fashion Festival bloggers day to choose something I KNEW I had to go with this little number! 

I sized up to a UK22 so it wouldn't cling as much as I'm still yet to find the perfect shape wear for me but this does look absolutely killer clinging to a girls curves just at the time I was having bit of a confidence wobble (still am tbh) so I wasn't feeling brave enough to size down! I'm really hoping I get invited to some fabulous festive party or something so I can show this off as it is the perfect party dress! I decided to style it up with sparkly accessories and some seriously glam make up! The belt worn in my hair I picked up at the bloggers day as well from Boohoo, it also looks really cute on the waist as it's intended use but I couldn't resist popping it in my hair to jazz up my tighter curled vintage inspired hair!

I know my posts have been extremely sporadic over the last several months but I'm trying to keep posting as I love it so much! I'm currently in the middle of costumes for a show and I just finished on another as wig dresser so lets just say my life is rather up in the air at the moment!

Viva `Voluptuous.

Tankini: C/O Viva Voluptuous. Kimono: Yours (old). Sunglasses: Specspost. Hair flower: Pin Up Curl. Sandals: Simply Be (old).

I'm back with my first swimwear post of the year! Usually I've had quite a number by now but due to my hiatus unfortunately this could be the only one but what beautiful pieces to show you! I was lucky enough to be sent this Tankini from Viva Voluptuous, I normally prefer a bikini or full suit but I actually really love this.  I am wearing the bottoms in a UK20 and they fit well without digging in or riding up, something I particularly like about Viva is that the Tankini and Bikini cups come in cup sizes and for plus size women that is often need a little support up top! I'm wearing the 38DD here and they are quite generous and I fit in well without spillage and as they are not padded cups I was concerned about the cups wrinkling as my chest isn't full at the top but that wasn't an issue at all. Another concern I had that I shouldn't have worried about was whether the Tankini part over my stomach would be tight as my tummy is larger than my back but it fitted well without clinging to any areas I'd rather it didn't. Viva Voluptuous currently have a sale on the swimwear so I'd grab a fabulous bargain while you can! 

I decided to style this up in my go to retro style and my hair flower from Pin Up Curl couldn't have matched any better. I decided to change from my usual red lip for a fun candy pink which I think I'll have to pull out more as it's nice for a change! Overall I'm so impressed with Viva Voluptuous and I definitely have my eye on a few pieces of there lingerie for myself.

Lindy Bop Love.

Delta Swan Border Swing Dress: c/o Lindy Bop. Belt: Vintage. Bolero: Asda. Hair Flower: Pin Up Curl. Shoes: Shop in Southwold (unfortunately now closed down!) Glasses: Red or Dead from Specsavers. Bag: Accessorize.

I'm back! I know it is quite a shock I've been planning on getting my blog back to how it used to be for awhile but unfortunately 2016 has been shit for me and my Mental Health hasn't let me feel like I could in all honesty. 

But what is better for a comeback than this BEAUTIFUL Delta dress Lindy Bop were kind enough to send me for review. I've always had a soft spot for Lindy Bop and lately they've upped there game even more! This print is killing it for me, when I first started dressing more to my vintage side border prints were just not available in my size and the colours in this one are just to die for! This dress is also not lined which I actually prefer in a swing dress so I don't end up with static when I wear a petticoat under the skirt. Here I'm wearing a size 22 which is what I always order with reproduction or vintage style brands as I often find that they run a little small. My only issues with this dress were that I need to pop a few tacks in the underarm as it gapes a little (something that happens in basically all dresses I wear that are sleeveless) and I find the dress quite long in the body but popping my favourite belt on solved that issue easily! I am honestly so impressed with this dress and feel really lovely in it. I also love that it has pockets! We ALL love a dress with pockets that is for sure! 

I decided to style it up with my vintage favourites and my hair was so amazing thanks to Jess at I love Lucie Hair Parlour in Stockport. I got my hair cut there just before I took these photos and it's honestly one of my favourite cuts particularly as my curls hold much better now thanks to the horseshoe vintage cut which was done. If you're a vintage gal I cannot recommend them enough! 

Lindy Bop currently have an End of Summer Sale on so I'd definitely recommend grabbing a bargain while you can!
