Topsy Curvy plus size clothing

Last week at Curvy Con I was lucky enough to be at the next stand to  a great plus size clothing brand called Topsy Curvy A nicer group of women you would struggle to find and their range of affordable cute plus size fashion was very lovely indeed.

Pretty in pink

They very kindly gave me this baby pink bow skater dress to review and I absolutely love it.Plus size fashion just got very cute indeed.


Mister Truffles is enjoying having his photo taken, he is such a poser.

The shape is classic plus size skater dress. Round neck, sleeveless and gently pulled in at the waist.I'm wearing a size 20 and it fits really nicely. No pinching under the arms and feels like I could eat a big dinner without feeling too constricted which lets be honest is an important requirement for me.

All wrapped up in  a plus size bow

The colour is just perfect, pale pink with a contrasting black bow waistband and hem detail which make it very Audrey Hepburn.

I hope I get top marks for coordinating my bush to my dress (snicker)

I've worn it with my absolutely fave shrug by Simply be-I love how this has slightly eighties style shoulder pads. It gives such a nice shape and is in a beautiful lightweight material.

Channelling some old skool Lilly Allen

As I was wearing this for an afternoon at a beer garden I decided to go slightly old skool Lilly Allen and wear my new Sketchers Flex Appeal trainers I have recently hurt my heel exercising in old trainers and these have been an absolute godsend in helping my poor little trotter recover.

Bows and boobs

Topsy Curvy took part in the Curvy Con fashion show and have so many nice pieces, I am sure I will be wearing lots more of their designs this summer.

More pink to make Betty wink

Plus Size Fashion Wishlist

Its the bank holiday, I have binged on Nashville, walked Mister Truffles so am now Indulging in some virtual Window licking. here are my current favourites from the world of plus size fashion.



Clements Ribeiro Camouflage Dress Buy here

I realise this print is fairly obnoxious but I just can't stop looking at this. I loved the last few collections by Clements Ribeiro  for Evans and this is no exception. I like to think I'm a soldier in the war for plus size acceptance and this would make the perfect uniform.



Black Chiffon Maxi Dress Buy Here
This Dress Is Such A Great Shape And I Love The Short Underslip And Maxi Chiffon Detailing. Saucy But Not X Rated.All this needs is a statement necklace,a cute clutch and bish, bash, bosh plus Size fashion fabulousness.





Sheer Black Maxi  Shirt Dress Buy Here
Keeping with sheer fabrics this shirt dress is so sexy but also so chic and wearable. Worn dressed up with heals or over ripped jeans and trainers this is a plus size fashion staple which I think I would get so much wear out of.



Boarder Print Kimono Buy here
I am loving how this seasons Plus size boho trend is bringing so many beautiful kimonos into my world and this is by far one of the nicest I have seen. Just wow! From the split sides to the hot orange colour my wardrobe would take this hippy little number and give it a big fabric covered kiss.



Neon Paisley Maxi Dress Buy Here

The neon flashes of colour and beautiful shape of this maxi are just perfect now we are heading into warmer weather.I like the fact it slightly pulled in at the waist as sometimes Maxis can feel a little shapeless, not this one.Good shape, great length it's maxi magic.

Kimono Jumpsuit in Sequins Buy Here

Words can not convey how much I adore this plus size sequin jumpsuit.On paper it sounds gaudy but the colour and cut make it so classy. Roll me in sequins and call me baby, I need this in my life.



Blazer in crepe with slim lapel Buy here
I am all about blazers and suit jackets at the moment.They make everything look cool and fashionable and are a great way to add a smart edge to jeans or a masculine edge to an ultra girl frock. This jacket is so beautifully cut. I'm particularly loving the thin lapels-its all very Patti Smith.


So those are my bank holiday picks. However you are spending the long weekend, have  a good one.

Don't forget I have a 20% discount and free P and P at new plus size brand Polly Grace-click here for details.

Curvy Con-The Catwalks

Earlier this week I shared the excitement of taking my own brand Nicky Rockets to Curvy Convention-you can read that post here Not only was I lucky enough  to meet so many inspiring plus size women at the event I also had possibly one of the best seats in the house for all the plus size collections which were on the catwalk. Here are my picks of the day.

Simply be
Simply be are having an amazing season so their show was really strong. A lot of boho/1970's inspired outfits which I adore. Fresh, summery and gorgeous.

 Alice and You paisley tunic  with ladder fringe cardigan

Topsy Curvy
I really love this brand. A small but mighty independent their clothes are stylish, sassy and super affordable. I was particularly loving the floral two pieces , check trousers and the chanel homage tees


I was lucky enough to be on the stand next to the Topsy Curvy girls and just love them. Their energy, love of fashion and customer service are just brilliant. 

hanging with Team Topsy Curvy-I will be reviewing this pink bow dress soon. watch this space.

Gemma Collins
The Gemma Collins show was as you would expect, vibrant, pretty and super feminine. Bright flowers, lots of body con and a few really gorgeous maxi dresses.I particularly loved the Jamacia Maxi dress and the floral peplum top and skirt 

I was actually wearing the black Hollywood top from her Evans range which still always gets lots of compliments.
Wearing and standing next to Gemma Collins-as you do
Figure of eight
Sadly I didn't get any photos of the Figure of eight collection but did fall head over heels for the dress  Lisa Riley wore to introduce the brand. Lisa revealed that she will be bringing out her own collection called "Just be you" with Figure of eight before Christmas which will include this frock which also has a matching bomber jacket-hell yes.

How good is this dress


Lisa seems genuinely excited about this collection and even let me try on the sequined dress-well whats a girl to do. I won't lie I didn't want to hand it back.

How beautiful is this
Asos Curve
The Asos Curve swimwear show was just adorable. Quite vintage, beautifully cut and so sexy.


I particularly loved the high waisted bikini with contrast detail and the pour moi siren black mesh swimsuit just fabulous.


Voodoo Vixen

As a lover of all thing vintage inspired I of course adored Voodoo Vixen. My faves on the day were the tropical print dress and the Polka dot floral. Both of which I think would work beautifully for spring afternoons out.





Sadly I missed some of the other brand shows as there was so much more, hopefully if you weren't there you will have seen the other collections covered on social media. 
Huge thanks to Lolly from Lollylikesfatshion who let me use lots of her event pictures-she is a queen with an amazing blog.
