Fashion | NineX Lingerie

This week I was very lucky to receive a lovely package from one of my favourite lingerie brands - NineX. Their pieces are always good quality and very affordable compared to what we currently have in the plus-size nightwear market.

Fashion | Elvi Autumn Favourites

Elvi has quickly become one of my favourites due to their on trend, classically cut and fashion focused ranges over the past few seasons. This season looks to be the best yet with a colour palette of black, khaki's and burgundy's, it's a well put together, coherent collection, with elements of the perfect capsule wardrobe. I thought I'd pop together a few of my favourites (which was very difficult to narrow down as I pretty much love everything!), and split them into two categories - pieces I'd dress up (gold) and items I'd dress casually (black). Hope you love them as much as I do!

Fashion | The Coat of Dreams

If you saw my most recent blog post (and my mini vlog) you'll know that I recently fell in love with the most beautiful coat at the Navabi plus-size blogger event, which showed off the new 'Navabi collection' in all its luxurious glory! This week, it became mine and I've been dying to blog about it since it arrived - has been torture not being able to wear it! 

This wool/felt coat has a very beautiful floral print, which is topped with the most intricate lace application. Its midi length, long sleeves, and full lining make it the perfect addition to my autumn/winter wardrobe. This is the kind of coat that will instantly dress up your outfit, making whatever you wear look next-level-chic! I am most definitely in love! As the coat is very much a statement piece, I opted to pair it with an LBD. Also from Navabi, created by plus-size designer Manon Baptiste, this little black dress is extremely comfortable (Cotton mix), flattering and the delicate lace detail is the perfect feminine touch. It's a very low V front wrap, so if you're quite busty you may want to pop a cami underneath or (like I did!) just go for it without! I love the waist tie detail which ties once around your waist, then you can bow or knot it at the front. I found the shape really flattering as it sits nicely over my hips and stops around the knee - paired with the tie front it, definitely elongates the body. 

You'll probably be seeing these two pieces a lot on my social media (as I'm slightly obsessed with them) so I hope you like them as much as I do!

Fashion | A Night With Navabi

A couple of weeks ago, I was very lucky to be invited to an evening with plus-size luxury retailer Navabi, and ultimate trend forecasters WGSN. I've been an avid reader of WGSN since uni, so was thrilled to see that they were co-hosting the event in their very beautiful and minimalistic London head office. I spent a lovely evening with a fabulous bunch of blogger babes, sipping champagne, chatting, laughing and a mega try on session of the new 'Navabi Collection' (sizes 16-30).

One of my favourite parts of the evening was talking to Navabi's Head of Design - Christine Shaw, who told me that she begins her process with the fabric she wants to use, then goes on to sketch and create the design. That alone tells me how strongly Navabi feel about the perfect fabric, cut and fit for each garment. The collection was inspired by "urban surroundings, like cracked pavements, branches and various different textures. The colour scheme is reminiscent of leaves, the grey of street curbs and the greens and blues of parklands." The intricacy of each garment is truly incredible - from the silver chain on the inside of each coat, to the detailed stitching of each dress - these small, surprise details are what makes buying from Navabi, truly special. Click here for the full AW15 collection - probably my favourite of the season so far. 

So, here are a few of my favourite images from the event (of course my 'Coat of Dreams' features! Full blog post of that beauty coming soon!).
