The lovely Designer and Buyer for Love Label.
Jameela Jamil crop top I need in my wardrobe!
So a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to pop to London for a mere 4 hours (How depressing I'm never there long enough!) for a lovely little event by Love Label for Very. We also got to look at a few pieces from other collections including one of my major girl crushes Jameela Jamil, I utterly adore the majority of her pieces but I was never sure if I'd get my chunky little body into them but seeing the adorable cropped shirt I may have to try! All us blogger were also lucky enough to choose an item from the new spring collection to keep and style up in our own ways. Now considering I technically only just fitted into Love Label (more on this in a minute) I chose something stretchy and a little out there from something I'd normally choose! I decided on the checkered body con midi dress which in person is quite generous so it doesn't really cling to my lumps and bumps at all. I can't wait to show you how it looks on a girl like me!
Now the real reason we were all there was to talk to the buyer and designer for Love Label, now let me start with how friendly these girls were, now I've been lucky to meet the odd designer and buyer in the past (specially with choosing to study these fields at college and uni) but these two were some of the most friendly I've met! they told us how they always have there eye on the catwalks and fashion weeks around the globe but the Love Label girl likes to focus on street style, taking a lot of inspiration from the people she see's on the street! Oh course we also heard about the amazing trips they go on around the world whether it's a fabric or inspiration mission or to speak to a new manufacturer they jet from places like the far east and the USA, of course does sound exciting but they also reminded us it's all so a lot of hard work and long hours! Another thing I liked to hear was that a number of the Love Label pieces were produced in the UK and that Very actually use a factory not far from my uni house in Leicester which is always cool to know!
It was time for us to ask the questions, and I brought up a question about the size range as they've recently stopped making Love Label up to a size 20 which I was obviously gutted about. From what I recall they mentioned something like it was taken out because So Fabulous is the new place for the younger more plus size market to go, which of course is great but also a shame for all of us who loved wearing Love Label! I really enjoyed the day even though at first I was a little curious as to why I'd been originally invited as I'm an 18 in bottoms and a 20 on top, I find the clothes quite generous so it wasn't a problem.
It was also lovely to meet some bloggers I'd otherwise probably never get the chance to, I spent most of my time with Claire and Em. I was worried about being the only plus size blogger of sorts there but I needn't of worried as these girls made me feel perfectly comfortable and they are so, so lovely! The team from Very and Love Label were also complete stars and so friendly, so thank you. As Very is actually based in Liverpool, it was nice to speak to some people that don't live to far from me either!
In case you're wondered what I wore, it's a playsuit from Asos Curve worn as a top! Skirt from Topshop and shoes sent to me from Clark's.
