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. It meant that my journey to work would be totally ruined, like a cake in the rain – and people waxed lyrical […]

The tale of the Clements Ribeiro Matchstick trousers… and even more jewellery…

So I did end up getting the Clements Ribeiro trousers. Remember I said I would? I did it, bitches! But I ordered a 16 and an 18… I needn’t had bothered, because the waist was elasticated and would have fit anyway. So, the 16 was ok waist-wise, but they were baggy in the legs. Also, […]

Evans Rant-O-Rama

I haven’t posted for a few days… I think my brain is still recovering from my six-pair shoe blow-out. That was a bit reckless, wasn’t it? But dammit – I look stylish! Anyway, my post today is going to be a bit of a rant, I’m afraid. A rant about our old friend, Evans. I’m not even […]

To be fair, the sale is nearing it’s end – but that doesn’t excuse the fact that exciting pieces are thin on the ground – there’s plenty of […]

Evans: 30% off until tonight & Arcadia’s downsizing

Last week, we learnt that Arcadia had a 40% fall in profits. Of course, we all know that Arcadia is a high-street giant (it owns Topshop, Evans, Dorothy Perkins, BHS etc etc) and so there’s almost no chance that the company is going down the pan.  Despite this, Sir Philip Green has reported that he […]

Pick of the Day: Evans Hiking Boots

They are not hiking boots. They don’t even come close. If you tried hiking in these, you’ll fall straight on your arse like a drunk mountain goat. But fashion isn’t always practical. Especially when you’re as fashion-forward as my readers! Am I right? Yeah? Yeah?!….. no? OK, so my ill-timed call-and-response attempt wasn’t well-received, but […]
