    Evans Plus launches in South Africa – Win a VIP modelling experience and R1500 voucher

    One of the biggest gripes of South African plus size women is that there just aren’t enough fashion-forward plus size clothing options available. So, when I found out that leading UK plus size brand Evans was coming to South Africa via Spree – well, you can’t even begin to imagine my excitement! I was given an exclusive sneak peek at the launch range, and had a bit of fun styling the Evan garments with other things available from Spree’s plus size offering, as well as my own closet. These are some of the looks I came up with: Evans Look 1: Jersey bar back top:  Evans at Spree Skirt: Similar…

    Plus size Valentine’s Day outfit idea 10: Pin-up poppet

    This frock is Valentine’s pinup perfection. It’s got the colours, it’s got the flirt, it’s got the fun. The dress totally makes me feel the part – it makes me want to giggle, flutter my eyelashes and spin and twirl the night away! The dress has a halter-neck and zip at the back, set in a stretch panel, which I think is a large part of why it gets such a perfect fit. I’m also grateful that the top is correctly graded for my ample bosom – not too much cutaway at the armpits, which is a common problem I experience. The petticoat comes separately – I was super lucky…

    Plus size Valentine’s Day outfit idea 9: Ooh-lah-lah-leopard

      Sometimes… well sometime’s a girl’s just gotta get glammed up. And what’s more glitz and glam than shparkly golden leopard print? NOTHING, NOTHING I TELL YOU. This dress is one of those rare beasts that looks amazing on the hanger… and even better on your body! The first layer is a fun metallic leopard print pattern, and for extra opulence there’s a second layer of mesh, segmented with ribbons. The ribbons don’t just add to the rich sense of quality, but also help to draw the eye vertically, with a very flattering effect. This dress has spunk, it has spangle and it has class. I paired it with some…

    Plus size Valentine’s Day outfit idea 8: The classic little black dress

    Ahhhh, where would we be without the little black dress? Dress it up, dress it down – it’s the wardrobe save-all. Bet you you could wear this dress every day for a month and style it differently each day and you’d get away with it. This specific LBD is the Jacki-style dress from Captive8. The fit and flair cut of the dress pleases me, and the knot feature as a great detail. The fabric has a nice weight to it without being too hot – you could get away with this dress is summer or winter, depending what you wore it with. It’s definitely been designed with a curvier/plus body…
