BUTTERFLY MAXI DRESS…

How good does Evans style editor look in this gorgeous floor length maxi dress? Heres what she had to say about the look…

“I’m looking forward to the weekend and I plan to start having fun the moment I clock off work today. 

This butterfly print maxi dress (coming in next week!) suits my mood and will take me into the beer garden for a nice glass of Friday Rose.

Without something over the top, this maxi dress would be too OTT for work, so I’ve added a soft denim biker jacket. But I can’t resist some playful jewellery in the shape of a leather charm necklace.

This oversized white leather bag is roomy and yet stylish. I’ve been shopping at lunchtime and filled it to bursting point!”

RUBY BELLE DRESSES AT EVANS

High street brand Evans have come up trumps again by launching this gorgeous range of dresses by the fantastic Ruby Belle. If you like pattern and prints this then collection will suit you down the ground. Prints and patterns were all over the catwalk last year and are set to be huge this summer. My favourite has to be the flamingo print dress, priced at £55. On that note, it should be noted that the dresses have all been priced the same at a brilliant £55. These dresses are a real investment piece. The red floral tea dress would be perfect for a festival with wellies and socks and light weight parker. Which is your favourite dress?

MUSINGS OF A FATSHIONISTA!

When I was reading the blog on clothing website, Evans,  recently I came across the guest blogger Christina from the fabulous blog Musings of a Fatshionista. Her writing is funny yet informative and she regularly uploads photographs of herself looking fabulous, taking trends and turning them on their head perfected for the girl with more curves than the models walking the runway. She has excellent advice on styling for the fuller figure, like how she took her American Apparell circle scarf and turned it into a maxi skirt with buckled shoes and a rucksack. She looks fabulous and is definatley one of my new style inspirations….lets see how long it takes for the fashion world to catch on. Not long, hopefully!

NEW ASOS CURVE ITEMS

I wanted to update you with the latest looks from ASOS’s new section, Curve, catering for sizes 20-26, bringing you the hottest styles and newest trends. I’m loving the cream lace shrug, which is bang on trend combining the nude hue and the lace design for only £30. The black dress (£38) will work wonders for the fuller figuer with it’s babydoll style, either teamed with tights or flat gladiator sandals and a denim jacket for summer. And lastly, this halterneck maxi dress with gold embellished neck line would be great for a summers evening drinking wine with the girls.

EVANS NEW SPRING COLLECTION

Evans have certainly pulled a fantastic line up for its spring collection. 

The latest 2010 campaign for the company — which caters to sizes 14 to 32 — takes its inspiration from Peter Lindbergh’s 1990 cover for Vogue, featuring a supermodel jackpot of Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Tatjana Patitz.

Twenty years on, Evans’ updated version stars a cluster of curvy beauties — Britney Vecchio, Hayley Morley (of Mark Fast catwalk fame), Crystal Renn (the face of the brand), Amber Tolliver and Peeky — in a clean, simple shot that the brand calls “aspirational yet accessible.”

“These supermodels of the ‘plus’ industry are making you forget their size,” Gary Dakin, vice-president of Ford Models, said in a press release.

“It is women like these that are going to knock down the final barriers, showing that they are some of the best at what they do by modeling for some of the key opinion formers and brands within the fashion world.”

Hear hear. I love the simple, sophisticated aesthetic, with the girls looking gorgeous in jeans, white tees and on-trend fitted tuxedo, military and leather jackets.

ASOS LAUNCHES ‘CURVE’

Fashion e-tailer ASOS  has just launched a new curves section to the site with items ranging from 20 to 26, which is great news for fashion concious plus size women. They already designed clothing for size 18 but this development is fantastic and I’m hoping that other retailers see sense and stop thinking size 16 is the end of the line when it comes to stylishly dressing.

The collection is relatively small at the moment, but I can understand why with the current climate, they need to judge the popularity and success of the clothing. My favourite peices are the ones below. The website states that this collection is “Trend led collection for sizes 20-26 featuring all the key peices you will need for the season. The price range is fab, starting at £6 for a vest to the maximum price of £100 for a long length leather jacket.
