Something Wicked This Way Comes: Little Wickeds Emporium

Wicked

Occasionally an email hits my inbox (ooh matron) that makes me do a little dance. Like this.

One such message was when the lovely Mindi from online boutique Little Wickeds Emporium got in touch to tell me that she was launching a range of made to measure plus size separates in all manner of amazing fabrics and designs. She asked would I like to model for it (meaning I got every piece made to my measurements) Joy to the world!
If like me your body often struggles to fit into standard sizing (I am all over the shop, big boobs, tiny sloping shoulders, big tummy, slimmish legs) then made to measure is an absolute dream.
Plus size perfection-made to measure
I supplied Mindi with a ton of measurements, everything from waist to just past the knee so she got the skirt length right to chest, underbust,waist, arms, the works.I then picked some fabrics and colourways  from her wonderful selection and waited impatiently to see what the finished clothes would look like.
Little Wickeds Emporium make choosing your design so easy. You can pick from a variety of necklines and sleeve types in tops,and for skirts opt for a pencil or circle style.
Here are my favourite looks from the photo shoot.
The Pamela Peplum top in the mermaid fabric with matching Lana pencil skirt. How utterly lush is this fabric.

Come and crash against my big fat rocks

And here is the same look but with a gingham Lana skirt and purple Pamela top.This feels like something Joan would wear in Madmen-its just adorable.

I also loved the Pamela top with elasticated peasant sleeves with a matching Lucille swing skirt in bright blue polka dot. 



Its so wonderful to see made to measure plus size clothes  being offered in alternative fabrics and unusual colourways.The fact that you can order them online just like any other purchase is wonderful.

The days of plus size ladies hiding in drab colours and plain fabrics is over. We want to strut like fuller figured peacocks and Little Wickeds Emporium is helping make this happen.They are also a one woman UK based enterprise made by hand with love and that's got to be worth celebrating too.

  1. My god they are lovely! I love funky prints and find quite a few by small indie companies such as Vampire Bunnies and Uncommon Nonsense. When I have some pennies I will definitely check Little Wicked out as that mermaid print is just fabulous and I don't think I have seen anyone else using it and of course your looking stunning again x
