The Neverending Search for the Perfect Christmas Dress

The title reads just like a fairy-tale doesn’t it? Well, it might as bloody well be. Finding a dress to wear to the work Christmas party is as about easy to find as a Dodo Cocktail. Believe it or not, I don’t want to spend £150 just so Jim from H.R. can spill red wine […]

Clements Ribeiro Swan Second Drop – It’s HERE!

So, you may remember Clements Ribeiro’s first collection for Evans.. .all pansies and matchsticks. Well, they’re back, readers!!!!! I think it’s fair to say that the idea of a designer collaboration for plus-sizers was more than well-received by the community. We bloomin’ loved the idea! And the morning that the first collection dropped, I remember […]

Olympic Fever, Bikinis and Maxi Dress Bonanza

So, the last couple of months have been pretty bloody hectic, haven’t they? For me, the Olympics coming to London was like telling Tony Blair that his parents-in-law were coming to stay. Forever.

BigBoldFashion’s 1st Ever COMPETITION!

‘Competition’. The word screams Olympics and sweaty men to me. But put that aside for now. Because we’re actually running a competition! To win something! Hurray!!!!! The prize today is a Baggu bag! Baggu Bags are a simple and effective design – they fold up really small and are made of fabric strong enough to carry the […]

Why, George, why??!

Why have George at Asda taken all of my money? It seems unfair. My paypal account was screaming at me not to, but I did it anyway. I’ve booked a holiday, you see. To the South of France. It’s hot, and apparently I melt like a snowman. The problem is, I don’t do sleeveless, either. […]

And end to the Radio Silence

Bloody hell. Talk about all quiet on the Western Front. I’ve been off radar for a month, starting a new job and alienating myself from society. Overall, it’s been lovely. For this, I apologise. But this also means that I have an absolute pig of a backlog of things to review. I’ve gone bananas with […]
