Hello, I'm gorgeoux. No, really. Just a tad into plus size, for my height, and struggling to find the clothes and the inspiration to enjoy this point in life at its fullest. Yes, there's a world of wonderful fashion blogs out there, yet most are talking to the size 8-10 I used to be ages ago, rather than the size 14-16 I dress every day. So after tinkering with the thought occasionally, here I finally go: sharing my outfits, my finds, my strolls and how all that comes together in London.
For starters, an outfit for Sunday, when slouching is the thing, and I believe it can be done in more style than go-to flip-flops and a nondescript gypsy skirt. Here's to suede, heels, pink, lace and... needlepoint! From Bloomsbury to Marylebone, from the Farmers' market to the glass of Mahou beer at a pub where patrons discuss acquiring 5 million pound houses...So you hopefully learned already that I covered the obligatory fashion blogger photo on the zeeebra, that I'm cultured, and a fan of Wenlock, and maybe also that I believe the way to have fun with being size 16, at times, is to... wear something ridiculously larger. Speaking of which. Lace vest (H&M Divided), needlepoint T-shirt (Topshop), 3/4 jeans, pouch bag, vintage stag brooch and crystals bracelet: eBay. Shoes: Oxfam. AB rhinestone bracelet: Martine Digby. What say you?
