International Plus Size
Fashion Wish List

As with most blogger challenges I've done in the past, I'm a wee bit late in posting this; sorry folks! Anyhoo, this is the 'International Wish List Blogger Challenge' (as suggested by Debz); myself and other plus size bloggers have shared their wish lists from international (non-UK, in other words) plus size fashion brands. Some may have included multiple brands but I'm personally focusing on one, else I could be here forever! I've chosen Eloquii, as I've been in awe of their products for quite some time but they unfortunately don't ship to the UK.

L-R: Printed Kady Fit Pant (PC: 1150050), $89.90
Two Tone Printed Dress (PC: 1231355), $119.90
Lace Jacket (PC: 1270919), $159.90
Printed Soft Midi Skirt (PC: 1191171), $110.90
Classic Chambray Shirt (PC: 1060700), $69.90
Laser Cut Scuba Skirt (PC: 1191337), $99.90
Studio Floral Eyelet Midi (PC: 1191206), $134.90
Printed Scuba Midi Skirt (PC: 1191270), $89.90
Studio Mesh Pleated Skirt (PC: 1191100), $110.90
Studio Eyelet Midi (PC: 1191017), $179.90

Eloquii's main size range goes from a US14 to US24; exactly what that equates to in UK sizing depends on which website you're reading at the time (some say 16-26, others say 18-28) so I'd always recommend checking the size chart before ordering...not that we can anyway (unless you have a US friend), but you get what I mean ;)

I see a lot of US bloggers styling Eloquii's items and they always look fabulous.

Don't forget to take a look at the other bloggers participating in this challenge:

Review: Spring Makeover
with Wingz

I got in touch with Wingz recently as I noticed that they were looking for bloggers to review their product and I've been wanting to try them. I was able to choose the design and I opted for the Stretch Lace Wings Half Sleeve in Black in a size 3 (24-28). This particular style is currently on sale for £16.99, reduced from £18.99.

As Spring is here I really want to start wearing dresses again, but it's not always as warm as it looks! Wingz are ideal for this as it means that you can wear sleeveless dresses and keep your arms warm, without covering up and hiding the dress with a cardigan.

The Wingz themselves are really comfortable with plenty of stretch and the lace isn't scratchy. I think I probably could've got the size 2 (18-22) as this size is a little roomy, but not so much that it's noticeable (I'm a 22 in tops usually and was worried the size 2 may be too tight, and there's nothing I can't stand more than having restricted arms). I think they go really well with this dress, so much so that you may not even realise it's not part of it!

The dress I'm wearing, in case you're interested, is the BESPOKEfit Spot Tunic Dress, which is now £14.50 from Simply Be (I'm wearing my usual dress size which is a 22).

Wingz offer plenty of styles and colours and their customer service is excellent. They also have 4 different size ranges, which cover sizes 6-28. I definitely want to get a plain design (probably black haha), as lace isn't going to go with everything!

Dress Up with George @ Asda

Supermarket clothes ranges are great for on trend fashion at bargain prices and George @ Asda is no exception; so when they contacted me to ask if I'd like to participate in their #DressUpwithGeorge campaign, I jumped at the opportunity. They kindly gifted me a dress of my choice in addition to some outerwear and asked me to style the dress for multiple occasions. I've gone with three themes; night out, work and casual.

I'm wearing the Floral Midi Dress in size 22; unfortunately it's now in the sale (was £18.00 now £10.00) and there's only a size 20 left (PC: 4891140). There's a couple of scuba dresses that are similar (PC: 4998555 and 4998556, both £15.00).

I'm also wearing (L-R) the Jersey Shrug in size 22 (PC: 5030514, £6.00, sizes 22 and 24 left), Textured Blazer in size 22/24 (PC: 4795576, £16.00, sizes 18-32) and the Mid Wash Denim Jacket in size 24 (PC: 4938884, £18.00, sizes 10-20 left). A word of warning with the denim jacket, if you want to be able to do it up size up! I'm usually a 24/26 in jackets (with room) and I can't get this close to doing up (which is fine by me, as I think denim jackets look a bit weird buttoned up anyway and it's more for layering).

This is the first time I've worn a dress casually like this (I'd normally wear leggings and flats) and I actually really love this look! The dress is really versatile and it's also comfortable so I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it. Which is your favourite look?

The George team also sent me a couple of other tops that I'm wearing to death at the moment; you might've seen the Leopard Print Tunic (PC: 4965361, £8.00, sizes 8-20 left) on my Instagram. I'm definitely going to be checking out the rest of their range as I want (correction, need) this top in every colour!

SS15 Novelty Bags Wish List

I have a confession to make, I'm developing a slight addiction to novelty bags; and what better way to support said addiction than compiling a wish list?! There's oodles of novelty bags available at the moment but these are some of my favourites from Next, ASOS, ALDO, Accessorize and New Look (I've listed the product codes below so you should be able to find them easily, just copy and paste into the relevant site's search bar).

I've only got two at the moment (the chocolate coin from New Look pictured below and the Accessorize camera bag that was on sale just after Christmas; it looks like the one below but I'm not sure if it's the same one or not) but I'm pretty sure it's not going to stay that way for long, particularly as I see so many bloggers rocking them with their outfit posts. Some of the bags I've included below may not necessarily be classed as novelty bags, but they're cute all the same. I think the Drumstick bag from Next is my favourite! What's yours?
