Party Time with Curvissa

We really are getting closer aren't we? So here's another party dress for you. Right here. On my (ever so Winter pale...) body.

Sequin Dress* - Curvissa
Pewter Shoes - New Look
Pewter Clutch - F&F (Similar HERE)
Diamante Earrings - New Look (Similar HERE)
This little baby was sent to me by Curvissa from their Plus Size Partywear range and isn't it lovely? I honestly cannot think of one person that this shape would not work on, and as someone who usually wears their clothes fitted, I'm surprised by how much I like the draping and neckline. In fact, when I first put it on I felt exceptionally Julianne Moore in a Single Man and trust when I say that this is the dream for me.

The beading is extremely weighty and the dress is fully lined (I know how much people love that!), it really is an extremely classy, grown up dress. 

I'm wearing an 18 here and could have definitely sized down EXCEPT I want space for my various festive eatings (I reckon I could do at least four Christmas dinners in this without even feeling a squeeze)

Seasonal Jumpsuits with Yours Clothing: Take 2

I told you there'd be more jumpsuit action didn't I? Well here it is:

Black Lace Jumpsuit* - Yours Clothing
Red Shoes - Old New Look (Similar HERE
I first saw this Yours jumpsuit on gorgeous model Bara when we were shooting the #All Yours advert and I needed it. What I will say is this: This jumpsuit looks incredible on women with a fuller bust - I love how it looks on me but to get the full detail of the scalloping and crossover I think you need to be one of those "Boobs that go outwards not across" people. Saying this, it's really nice to have the option to cover up a bit or reveal the gals.

Another thing that I'll say for this jumpsuit - It is wonderfully warm. The double layer makes it incredibly cosy and comfortable which in turn makes it ideal for a Christmas meal/dinner/three boxes of after eight mints on the settee. Plus, if you decide to go out in this stupidly cold weather that we're having, you are unlikely to catch frostbite.

I'm really starting to get into the party spirit at the moment, this is in part due to the incredible mulled wine I bulk bought from M&S and have been necking like Ribena. Also, Ferero Roche. If I carry on at this rate I'll have gout within a week...

Seasonal Jumpsuits with Yours Clothing

You know I love a good Jumpsuit and Yours Clothing have come up trumps with this one.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Metallic Jumpsuit* - Yours Clothing
Cape Jacket - Jameela Jamil for Simply Be
Shoes - New Look (Similar HERE)
 The suit* is made of a metallic thread based nylon rather than glitter so it doesn't shed which my cats are thrilled about as they don't look like small furry pixies after sitting on me. It's also extremely lightweight and despite the narrow straps, gives an excellent coverage meaning you can wear a good bra underneath. Also the length is a thumbs up for tall people. 

I'm wearing an 18 in these pictures and it fits brilliantly - A 16 would be fine but I like to minimise the chance of camel toe at all times. All. Times. For that reason, I've also added a belt because it allows me to create a bit more shape and draping at the middle whilst strengthening the barrier between me and lady part catastrophe.

The Cape Jacket is Jameela Jamil for Simply Be. I've wanted a cape jacket since seeing Kate in her lush multicoloured dream coat, so when Simply Be brought one out in classic (Read: Too sensible) black I was sold. It truly is a powerful, powerful jacket.

I've not yet worn this outfit outside of the garden path but my festive social calendar is starting to get busy and I intend to never be less than 100% sparkly.

I have another jumpsuit to show you this week, it's not as spangly but it's a little bit saucier... (At least it's meant to be, let's see how I pull it off...)

Plus Size Workwear with Navabi

I've had a few weeks away from the blog, partly for a break after all the excitement of the #AllYours campaign but partly because I HAVE A NEW JOB. You know what new job means...? 

A New work wardrobe.

So I'm kicking off with this gorgeous Manon Baptiste gathered shift dress from Navabi. (Excuse the pictures, it was raining...)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
GatheredShift Dress*: Manon Baptiste from Navabi
Shoes: Old (Similar 
HERE)
Chain: Old (Similar 
HERE)
In the past I've generally gone for Next and Primark for my work wardrobe because it's cheap and cheerful, of late it's lacked individuality and I've started to tire of that black sweaty generic workwear material. I'm trying to bring a bit of my own personality into my workwear. This dress does just that; The draping, cap sleeves and cowl neck make it elegant yet wearable and the forest green colour further takes it away from your standard drab office get up.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Something I will say, I wish that this dress was a bit longer. The Navabi Collection dress that I have is just that bit longer and it makes a real difference when it comes to feeling put together - I feel like if this sat below the knee with a pencil shape, we'd be in the realms of dress perfection. Saying that, when I wear this with my full length wool coat, it looks like I'm wearing nothing else under it which is pretty cool and gets me a lot of attention...

There's a strong chance that my wardrobe will consist of workwear and pyjamas for at least the next 12 years so this will be the beginning of a Plus size workwear feature, if you can recommend anywhere, in particular for taller bizness women, please drop me a comment!
