Fashiola: The Fat Fashion Finder

Whilst its great there is so much more choice for plus size hotties sometimes wading through twenty websites looking for that one frock can be time consuming. I love the idea of portal websites which do the hard work for you so was intrigued to check out Fashiola which claims to be a "fashion finder" site with a plus size clothing section.
Checking out fashiola
The layout of the site is easy to navigate and the plus size range whilst not being vast is fairly decent.
The search engine asks you to put in what you are looking for (for example "Size 18 pink dress" and it offers you items from various sellers with links direct to the site.
My search for the perfect pink frock

Its a great way to quickly find stuff and the choice of accessories in addition to the clothes is brilliant.
As well as affordable brands there are some truly beautiful designer clothes to drool over. My wish list items included a midnight blue frock by Viveinne Westwood, a handbag print shift by Mochino and a Frida Karloesque dress by D and G.Be still my beating heart.
Vivienne Westwood loveliness
This dress by D and G is just so good

I need this in my life

I particularly enjoyed putting together my own Lookbooks which you can save and share.Unsurprisingly my Lookbooks favoured animal prints and cat designs. What can I tell you, the heart wants what the heart wants.

The site offers price bands so if you have £30 to spend and are after a size 22 pair of black trousers it will find whats available within those parameters,quite nifty.
The only downside is that the  plus size options are frustratingly only up to a size 18 for some items but do go up to a size 26 on dresses and tops.
The brands on offer include Asos Curve and some I hadn't heard of before such as Carmakoma,Chi Chi and Lipstick boutique so its a good place to find brands you might not see otherwise.
Overall I loved using this site. Its helpful, fun and you can seriously lose hours creating your own look books.

Its so easy to create your own looks

I went for  a leopard print shift dress by ClubL with a sleeping cat bag by Asos Curve. 

I was lusting over the Kitty Studd flats by Charlotte Olympia too but at £689 may have to save up.

Why couldn't I have been born rich instead of clever-sob!

*I never lie to you dear readers I was gifted a Fashiola voucher-the opinions however are my own*
