Vintage Lovely with Voodoo Vixen.





Fances Cardigan: c/o Voodoo Vixen. Circle Skirt: Made by Me. Glasses: Jeepers Peepers.

Now as you all know I do have a little bit of a thing for the retro/vintage look. Sometimes I'll go all out and try and look as authentic as possible but most of the time I tend to mix something from one era with modern day style. I rarely wear true vintage and generally opt for reproduction as I vastly prefer the fabrics and the fit size wise is usually a little better however I often have to size up to a size 22 in repro brands for a little breathing room. A large number of vintage reproduction companies don't really offer anything over a UK20 but this is where Voodoo Vixen comes into play, they've recently launched their plus size range which currently caters for a UK24+ and I'm happy to say their fit is right on here I'm wearing the Frances cardigan in a 3xl which is around a UK20. I did find that the last two buttons were a struggle to do up but I think this is due to the knit that was used as it fits perfectly everywhere else!

This is one of the first pieces Voodoo Vixen has sent me to review and I'm over the moon with the quality, fit and over all style! I've got a rather stunning dress to show you next but I'm just waiting for a few final pieces to make the whole look perfect! I know they also have some utterly fabulous pieces coming out in the New Year so stay tuned! I finished the look with a skirt I made for myself during the summer and I'm so glad that with this cardigan it makes it a little more weather appropriate for this time of year and my cat eye glasses that I do actually need to see with.

What do you think of the new Voodoo Vixen plus size range what are your favourite pieces?

  2. Gorgeous look. I keep thinking their cardi's are *really* short though...like beyond the 'vintage look' and different than they look in promo shots. Only from what I've seen on bloggers, haven't tried them myself. I'm not sure I'd like something too short.

  3. I love this so much! I agree with Gem I'm so used to the 'gaping' effect (and I am NOT super endowed by any measure) but this looks perfect I might have to give them a try xx

I was married to my husband Alana Evans, we were together for a long time and we loved our self’s but when I was unable to give him a child for 4 years he left me and told me he can’t continue anymore then I was now looking for ways to get him back until i saw Dr.Agbazara contact on this site about his powers.
