Hello my lovies,

About a month ago I was lucky to be invited to a lovely dinner hosted by Marisota. The dinner was to celebrate the launch of new range AVA by Mark Heyes. It was lovely to spend time with my fellow bloggers, and to meet Mark as well, he seemed like a really nice guy. As a part of the goodie bag for the event we got the chance to choose a few items from the range, and I chose a collarless coat and a studded blouse. The coat is a real bargain at £49, as it feels and looks really luxurious – well done Marisota and Mark!

The blouse actually comes with a cami, but I decided not to wear it. You know me and my love of all things sheer. AND how can I not show this gorgeous Curvy Kate Portia-bra as well? Am I right ;)?!

Coat*: 24, Marisota | Blouse*: 26, Marisota | Skirt: 24, Simply Be (similar at Simply Be) | Tights: E, We Love Colors | Boots: Evans | Bra*: Curvy Kate | Glasses: Select Specs | Lippy: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Brazen Berry

Takki*: 24 UK, Marisota | Paita*: 26 UK, Marisota | Hame: 24 UK, Simply Be (saman tyylinen Simply Be:llä) | Sukkikset: E, We Love Colors | Saappaat: Evans | Rintsikat*: Curvy Kate (saatavilla: Simply Be, Lumilingerie) | Rillit: Select Specs | Huulipuna: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Brazen Berry


Noin kuukausi sitten sain kutsun Marisotan järjestämälle illalliselle, ja illallisella juhlittiin merkin uutta AVA by Mark Heyes-mallistoa. Marisota ei valitettavasti toimita Suomeen, mutta kuuluu samaan konserniin kuin Simply Be, eli osa malliston tuotteista löytyy Simply Be:n EU-kaupasta. Illallisella oli kiva viettää aikaa bloggaaja-kavereiden kanssa, ja Mark itse vaikutti oikein mukavalta mieheltä. (Hän on siis kuuluisa stylisti täällä Briteissä.) Osana tapahtuman goodie bagiä oli se, että saimme valita mallistosta pari tuotetta joista pidimme eniten. Valitsin siis kuvissa näkyvän takin ja paidan. Paitaan kuuluu oikeasti musta alustoppi, mutta minähän rakastan läpinäkyviä paitoja, joten päätin jättää alustopin pois. Päällä oli kauniit ja istuvat Curvy Katen Portia-rintsikat, joten niiden sietääkin näkyä ;)!

Fatshion Faceoff: British Heritage

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

Hello my lovelies,

It’s time for Fatshion Faceoff again! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s theme was chosen by me, and she I chose ‘British Heritage’.

Maybe it’s weird that a Finnish person chooses British Heritage as a theme, but I do love tartan, tweed, earthy colours.. which are all included in the trend. So, I’m wearing this gorgeous coat which I was kindly gifted to me by Marisota after I fell in love with it at their AW13 press event. I teamed it up with this tartan skater skirt from Simply Be, which reminds me of kilts too – LOVE this! The last ‘British’ part are the Evans chelsea boots from last winter. So how did I do? Do you like my take on the trend?

Coat*: 24, Marisota | Top: 20, Primark | Skirt: 26, Simply Be | Tights: 22-26, Yours Clothing | Boots: Evans | Glasses: Select Specs | Lippy: Rimmel London Kate Moss shade 110

Takki*: 24 UK, Marisota (saman tyylinen Junaroselta) | Paita: 20 UK, Primark | Hame: 26 UK, Simply Be (saman tyylinen Pink Clovelta) | Sukkikset: 22-26, Yours Clothing | Saappaat: Evans | Rillit: Select Specs | Huulipuna: Rimmel London Kate Moss sävy 110


Nyt olis jälleen Fatshion Faceoffin aika. Jos et ole vielä tietoinen tästä ‘projektista’ jota teen 4 muun plussa-bloggaajan kanssa, niin lisätietoa (englanniksi) löytyy täältä. Tämän viikon teemaksi minä valitsin ‘Brittiläisen perinteen’. 

On ehkä kummallista, että mä suomalaisena valitsin tämän teeman, mutta rakastan tartania/skottiruutua, tweediä, maanläheisiä värejä.. jotka kaikki on osa tätä trendiä. Asuuni valitsin tämän ihanan takin, jonka Marisota lähetti mulle kun näkivät miten rakastuin siihen pressipäivillä. Lisäksi valitsin tämän hetken lempi-hameeni, kilttimäisen Simply Be-hameen (jota valitettavasti ei ole heidän Euro-kaupassaan – sorry). Viimeinen brittiläinen osa asuani on Evansin chelsea-saappaat viime talvelta. Mitäs olette mieltä? Tykkäättekö miten pukeuduin tähän trendiin?

FFFW: What I wore to Indie runway event

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey my lovelies,

My favourite event I attended at Full Figured Fashion Week was the Indie designers runway show. It was amazing to see the diversity in the industry, and funnily enough my favourites were Rue 114 and Live Unlimited – which were the most daring and most classic out of them all :)! Sadly my photos didn’t turn out very well, but please see Dani’s post for nice detailed photos.

I wore a gorgeous dress that I got from Marisota, I love the vibrant coral colour and the lace detailing, it is definitely one of my favourite dresses. I teamed it up with my nude/neon yellow heels from Lane Bryant and some gold jewellery.

Dress*: 26, Marisota | Heels*: Lane Bryant | Belt: from a New Look dress (similar at ASOS Curve) | Bow ring: ASOS Curve | Bracelets: Evans & *Lane Bryant | Glasses: Select Specs | Lippy: Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids in Electric Orange (UK link, US link)

After the runway Dani and I went for dinner and drinks with Lucy and Angela from Scarlett&Jo. It was lovely to chat with them and hear things about plus-size fashion from a brand’s point of view. That day was definitely my favourite day in NYC :).

ps. Did you see my post on Pink Clove, a new plus-size brand? Check it out and enter the giveaway too!
