90′s Florals

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

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

I’ve re-fallen in love with florals, especially when they are worn with denim for a more grungey 90′s look. I found some really cute floral pieces from New Look Inspire, and thought I’d build some outfits using them.

The key piece for the first outfit is the floral cami, and I thought it would look really cool with snow washed denim shorts and a black bomber jacket. The quilted booties are just amazing, and the paperbag clutch goes perfectly with the white of their soles. I finished the outfit with orange lipstick and nail polish.

The second outfit has two floral pieces from New Look Inspire, the cute shorts and the burnt out t-shirt. I thought the denim parka from Junarose brings more ‘street’ to the cutesy outfit, and the buckled boots add to that. The duffle bag and the pink and nude lips and nails finish the outfit nicely.

How do you feel about 90′s florals?

Outfit 2. Junarose Aco Parka Coat, ASOS Quilted Duffle Bag With Chain HandleNew Look Inspire Pink Floral Mesh Burnout T-ShirtNew Look Inspire Pink Floral Print Shortsboohoo Louise Gold Trim Cut Out Boot, Stila Colour Balm Lipstick – Brights in Elle, Nails Inc Latex Nail Polish

Olen jälleen löytänyt kukkakuosit, varsinkin jos ne yhdistää denimiin. Ysäri ja grunge-lookin kukkaset on ihan parhaita. Löysin kivoja kukkakuosi-vaatteita New Look Inspire:ltä, ja ajattelin rakentaa pari asua niitä käyttäen.

Aloitin ekan asun kokoamisen tuosta kukka-topista, ja ajattelin, että se näyttäisi tosi kivalta lumipestyjen farkkushortsien ja mustan bomberin kanssa. Nuo tikki-saappaat on aivan upeat, ja niiden valkoiset pohjat sopii loistavasti tuohon ‘paperipussi’-laukkuun. Viimeisenä silauksena asuun valitsin oranssia huulipunaa ja kynsilakkaa.

Toisessa asussa on kaksi kukkakuosista vaatetta New Look Inspire:ltä, söpöt shortsit ja t-paita. Ajattelin, että Junarosen denim-parka olisi loistavaa vähän tuomaan katu-uskottavuutta tuolle söpölle kokonaisuudelle, ja myös saappaat lisäävät tätä tunnelmaa. Nude laukku, pinkit huulet ja nudet kynnet ovat hyvä valinta viimeistelemään asun.

Mites ysäri-kukkaset uppoaa suhun?

Hello my lovelies,

First of all, thank you for your lovely feedback on my last post and my situation. It means the world to me that you guys support me and have my back <3.

So how better to celebrate than with a festive outfit! The fauxfur coat is from Yours Clothing, and it feels so luxurious, and the fit is great too. I got the peplum top from Pink Clove, and it’s perfect for the party season. The fit is perfect, and the baroque pattern in the gold is lovely. The clutch and the bracelets are amazing goodies I have gotten from blogger events this autumn. The clutch is from Just Fab, and the bracelets are by Annie Haak (who I met at a blogger breakfast few weeks ago – really nice and talented lady). The IGIGI skirt you have already seen, but in these photos you can see it from the back too. It is such an amazing skirt! So yes, all in all this is one of my favourite outfits in a while, I think I should go to more parties ;).

Out for the Fashion Weekend

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

Hello lovies,

I got two tickets to last weekend’s London Fashion Weekend, and went there for an afternoon of fun with my friend Ausra. It was nice to have a look what was going on in there, and we even got to do this funny 360° video with Canon. I think we are still quite far from The Matrix, haha ;).

Blazer*: 24, Simply Be (patterned blazer with mint: ASOS Curve, similar in coral: ASOS Curve) | Top*: 24, Pink Clove | Jeggings*: 26, Junarose | Heels: Evans (similar coloured flats and heels at ASOS) | Necklace: Evans | Glasses: Select Specs | Lippy: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Shocking Coral (UK link, US link)

Bleiseri*: 24 UK, Simply Be (printti-bleiseri, jossa mintunvihreää: ASOS Curve, saman tyylinen korallina: ASOS Curve) | Paita*: 24 UK, Pink Clove | Jeggingsit*: 54, Junarose | Korkkarit: Evans (saman väriset kengät ja korkkarit ASOSilla) | Kaulakoru: Evans | Rillit: Select Specs | Huulipuna: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, sävy Shocking Coral


Sain London Fashion Weekendiin kaksi lippua, ja viime sunnuntaina menin sinne viettämään hauskaa iltapäivää ystäväni Ausran kanssa. Oli kiva katsella ympärilleen siellä, vaikka kaikki itse muoti ei olisi mulle mahtunut päälle (ja vaikka olisikin, niin eipä mulla olisi ollut varaakaan) – ja jopa saatiin kuvata tälläinen 360° video Canonin osastolla. Ihan ei olla vielä Matrixin tasolla tuossa touhussa ;).

Exclusive first look: Pink Clove

Tags: , , , ,

Hello my lovelies,

Today I have something pretty special to show you! I’m really excited about this post and these news, and I hope you will be too. Either this will be a total surprise for you, or you might have seen some cryptic tweets or Facebook statuses about it.. BUT there is a new plus-size brand on the block: Pink Clove. I didn’t know what to expect when I was invited to go behind the scenes at their lookbook photoshoot. I ended up being one of the first people to see their new range and to hear about it, and now it is my time to show and tell you what I learned.

So, what kind of brand is Pink Clove? They are a British brand whose online shop has opened this morning. They sell trendy plus-size clothing in really affordable prices, and they ship worldwide. Their first collection has variety of jersey items; leggings, skirts, tops and dresses, and their price range is from £12 to £40. The size range for the collection is 16-32 (the two biggest sizes are dual-sized at 26/28 and 30/32), and this first collection is entirely made in the UK.

I have lots more info to tell you, but first let me show you some behind the scenes shots that I took at the photoshoot. (I warn you, this post will be very picture heavy, but I want to let the photos to do most of the talking and for you to see as much as possible.)

It was crazy to see how much happens behind the camera and on breaks. The gorgeous models Bara and Brenna were amazing, and I have huge respect for models after seeing all that.. I could never do that job! Below are just a few final photos from the shoot – the girls and the clothes look stunning, and I’m sure you’ll agree!

Gorgeous, right? But how do the clothes look like when one is not a model? Maybe you wonder how they look on someone big bellied, big boobed and big bottomed? Well, I am all of those things myself and since I was lucky to receive some samples from them, I took some photos to show you. (I apologise, I’ve been feeling ill and it really shows in some of these photos. I’m sure you’ll see these pieces in future OOTD posts as well.)

Tartan-print skirt, £18 (I’m wearing my usual size, 24)

Purple ‘ombre print top/tunic (Brenna wears it as a tunic on the lookbook shot above), £22 (I’m wearing size 24)

Maxi dress, £28 (I sized up to 30/32 to ensure it is very long, as I need my maxis to be long – haha)

Alphabet print dress, £18 (I sized up to 26/28 since I didn’t want it to fit like a bodycon on me)

Maxi skirts in green and black, £18 (I’m wearing 26/28)

Soft peplum top, £18 (size 24) and printed wetlook leggings, £16 (size 26)

Grey lace skirt, £24 (size 24)

I really love these cute pieces I got, especially the maxi dress, and the tartan and lace skirts, and the peplum top, and the leggings… yes, many things. I also took some photos of the products at the shoot, so let me show you some more of my favourites.

Oh how I wish that this jumpsuit would suit my bodyshape! One day I will give it a try as it’s just stunning!

This collection has three key stories; Sports Luxe, Punk Grunge and 40′s & 50′s Lady. Sports Luxe is inspired by sportswear styling with a strong emphasis on luxe surfaces (lurex yarns in the fabrics, wetlook high shine fabrics and ornate embellishment print), Punk Grunge is inspired by 1970’s punk combined with 1990’s grunge (street influenced trend with a feminine twist, they have used bold prints and a combination of textured fabrics and lace to create a pretty/feminine grunge look), and lastly 40′s & 50′s Lady is a combination of two key looks from the AW 13/14 catwalks (the glamorous and demure 1940’s looks from the catwalks gave them a perfect hourglass silhouette to work with, and the 1950’s look gave them the fit and flare silhouettes). In their future collections they are looking to add also denim and woven items to their range, but started with only jersey items.

So, are you as excited as I am? There’s never enough plus-size brands around, especially one that says that its goal is to offer affordable fashion for plus-sized women offering them the latest fashion trends at key price points. Now all you need to do is to go to and show them some love! Feel free to leave comments/feedback here too, they are eager to hear what you think :).

Was that all then? Well NO. The lovely people at Pink Clove have also given me a £100 voucher to give away to one of you! All you need to do to enter is to go to and choose your favourite items, and then leave me a comment telling me what you’d buy with the voucher.
