I See Red




I've not reviewed jeans or a jumper from City Chic in a very long time but these two pieces called to me and I wanted to be brave enough to pair them together!



There is nothing I love more in the world that red plaid clothing and when I saw these pop up on the CC website they had to be mine. These skinnys are a super lite and stretchy plaid with a zip and button combo. I've worn the Harleys for years now and these sit super high which is perfect for my shape.



I'm wearing the 16/Small and they were tight at first but after a few hours and home and squats they are 100% perfect fit wise. I've even tested these in the car for an afternoon and they are so comfortable to wear and will be perfect for anything from travel, casual wear or pairing with heels and a stunning blazer for a night out.



While I've paired these with a bold printed top I also can't wait to wear these both casually and style them out for a night. Hoodies, band tees and leather for day to day weather - heels and a few more glam pieces for a night out in winter.



Next I ordered and instantly fell in love with the Lust Jumper - I feel like this one was named for me!! A super soft and slouchy jumper with a V-neckline and a really amazing fit in a 16. I'm usually not a fan of anything jumper wise but the neckline really works with my bustline and I adore the fit.

This is not a super wooly jumper so you will need to layer this piece for colder days. This also shines perfectly with all of my moto jackets and I love the pop of bright red print under my go to moto! I never thought I'd be in love with a look so bright and bold but I'm smitten!!! I can't wait to mix each piece into my winter wardrobe!

My Cup Runneth Over

 My bedroom makeover could not have been timed more perfectly as over the past few weeks my state has slowly gone into lockdown. While my day job is still essential, I also took last week off and just happed to have the absolutely best of loungewear to drape myself in over my short break.

Now you may have seen these pop up briefly in my big reveal post but this is my full review. 


I have to admit I've been lusting after this full look for a while now! There is something so effortlessly stunning about this all black combo and the fit - oh my gosh it's perfection.
The Siren long sleeve top has the most amazing support, and lift with some super magic hidden within and an adjustable under bust tie. 




Created with a mixture of Italian Ponte, soft mesh and luxe Bamboo jersey these pieces are pure bliss to wear. Soft, stretchy and almost weightless. The deep v bust and long sleeve combo is very my style and the length is great for wearing tucked in or out.



Size wise I'm wearing the Large in both pieces which is a 16/18 and cup 3 for the twins. The fit is spot on and gives my 16HH bust lots of lift which is rare from an in-built bra.

The pants in the size Large are so unbelievably comfy, but I think I could use a size down as they have so much room. Oh and did I mention they come with a waist band that can be worn high at the waist or folded to sit on your hips and pockets!!!!!



Now for a little splash of colour! Continuing with the theme of epic support the next piece I picked up was the straight laced line style in this stunning shade of orange. I have so many dark colours in my lounge wear collection so this time I wanted to add one I usually don't wear too often.

This piece has the same support level as the previous top but in a supportive A-line singlet style. A stunning mix of lace, bow accents and that super softfabric.




Honestly, I can't get enough of these pieces, and I've been living in them for the past few weeks. They are so chic you can easily sneak out and get brunch or coffee in any piece. I can't wait to add even more of My Cup Runneth Over's pieces to my collection as I want to wear nothing but this in my down time from now on.

I also got a  set of TitWiks White (5 Pack) - $25.00 to try and I'll be updating you once I've used them
These are an awesome creation for all those sticky, sweaty, itchy, annoying boob issues that many of us experience daily. This is a label that really does have your the best for our breasts in mind and know exactly what we need to be comfortable and supported.

All About Those Lashes



If you haven't noticed by now I may have a slight obsession with over the top dramatic winged lashes and tend to wear them every chance I get. So when I find a new style or brand I'm always super eager to try them. 

This week my Airlash order arrived and I'm rather smitten with these full, fluttering and bombshell styled synthetic lashes and I'll be testing these shortly to show you in my next fashion and accessory post. 


Perfectly packed and presented these lashes are lightweight and absolutely stunning close up. They are fully and long, with each synthetic 3D lash perfectly placed and set. 

Each pair is much more bold in person which is perfect for me as I love to have super long, doe like lashes. 

Being synthetic you'll not have worry about any harm to minks yet you can have exactly the same look if not better.

I've actually been using magnetic lashes more often these days but I found that these with my own glue were super easy to use. I can't wait to show you the full pinup look with these and more sets in the future. 

So be sure to check back later this week for the full pinup look!! Use  the code PRING20" to get 20% Off sitewide!

Pink Dinos!

I feel like it's been way too long since I've shot a few Bonsai Kitten pieces so I'm making up for it with the most adorable print ever know to man kind - Pink Dinos!!!!



I've been trying to add more pink to my wardrobe over the last few years and luckily Bonsai Kitten have these two perfect pieces to pair together. 
          

Now the Belle Sleeve Top is a completely new style for me but I can already tell I'm going to be addicted to these round flowing sleeves.

Created with the softest viscose/cotton combo this top hugs your body in such a brilliant way and offers 100% comfort. The soft fabric fits your curves perfectly and that square neckline really makes my chest pop!



I'm wearing the Belle in a size 16 and it's perfect! My bra is very structured so it does pop through a little but that does not both me at all. The sleeves on this style are amazing and I'm already looking at other prints and neckline's with the same shape.


Let's chat about his adorable dinosaur covered skirt!!!


Do you love kitschy retro prints and dinos? Then this is the skirt for you! Featuring all your favourite prehistoric creatures in the sweetest shade of pink. This style is a gathered at the waist and it will amplify that hourglass shape.




Its cut to sit high on the true waist, with a back metal zip, it features two front pockets, big enough for keys and phone. Made from 100% cotton/Lycra so it really does mold to your shape.


I'm wearing the skirt in a 16 and the stretch of the fabric means it's a perfect fit. I'll be wearing this all year round and need more prints in this exact style!

Cherries Pies

We are on a shooting/reviewing spree right now and you my lovely readers are reaping the benefits!

Recently I got my paws on a few new seasons pieces from Hell Bunny and I've got to say the new prints and brilliant new alterations to existing styles have made me swoon. So if you are in need of a little distraction let's chat fashion!



For a lass that's been wearing rockabilly/retro inspired prints of over a decade now I've not actually had too many cherries in my collection over the years. But from the moment I saw this mixture of soft pink blossoms paired with red cherries I was instantly in love.


A soft and sweet fabric with the right pop of colour this 50's style is complete with pockets, pleats and a back zip and button closure.


I'm wearing this in my standard size 2XL, and the fit is spot on for all of my other Hell Bunny swing style skirts. The super fitted waist and full style really does create great shape and I'm loving the lighter shade as I'm always wearing blacks or darker colours. 


I've paired this piece with one of my cropped Yemak Sweaters, and I love the effortlessly perfect vibe of this whole look. For this and all Yemak sweaters I wear a size XL as they have lots of stretch and the smaller size tends to hug my curves perfectly. 


You might have noticed in my last Hell Bunny post that I have an outright addiction to their amazing collection of peasant style mid dresses. I've featured Vegas, cocktails, strawberries, and lovebird themed prints but for this season we have the new Noa Noa Mid dress witch is the same amazing fit with one extra special addition.

The Noa Noa has the same fitted bust, perfect waist but instead of a little keyhole at the bust this piece as a bow tie. This extra little detail makes the Noa Noa dress even more adorable and even better on a busty girl like myself.   



The fabric for this style is covered in tikis, and hibiscus flowers on a black background. The soft colours really pop on the black base and I have been wearing this every chance I get.

Size wise I'm wearing the 2XL, and the fit is perfect as per usual with this design.




As you can see, we also found the best location to compliment this print and I'm absolutely over the moon with how these images came out. Many thanks to my amazing husband for capturing what might be my number 1 favourite dress release of 2020. 



Now for a little gingham! I honestly can't say now to a check print and the Victorine 50's swing is giving me life. A bold gingham print, full gathered skirt, pockets and a fully lined bodice, this piece really knows how to accentuate your assets.  



Now I'm not wearing an form of bra in these shots as to be honest I can't. My 16HH cups are going free in this dress but with the cross over bust I'm actually held in securely and firmly.


But if you are not one to go bra free I highly suggest you to size up as the fully lined bodice means little to no stretch.


I'm super comfortable in the 2XL though and even the capped sleeves are roomy enough that you'll not have any tightness or fit issues.


This piece is amazing on it's own or styled with a bright cardigan and belt. Being a black and white based print you, can pair just about colour with this dress and look amazing. Time to start planning more looks this this!

I hope that helps with any current fit questions you may be having and if there are any other Hell Bunny pieces you'd like help with or advice regarding plus sizes please get in touch!

Essentially Blackmilk

When it comes to comfort the effortless slip in and out of styling of BlackMilk Clothing is a must for day to day life. The comfort level, sleek design and those essential BlackMilk design features make these pieces a must have for your collection.

 
 


I don't know how I've lasted through the years without the this style of high necked skater in my world in every possible print and colour option.





The perfect length in skirt and sleeve, perfectly figure hugging and complete with hidden pockets these evil little skater dresses are the perfect go to when you want to wear a classic black skater.



The Warm Black style is a classically stylish piece that can be layered with ease and looks absolutely deelish when paired with a bold belt and leather jacket. This piece is lined with polar fleece so it's perfect for cooler weather. The lining of this piece really does keep you cozy!

My first dip into higher BM necklines was for my brains dress and I love the way my bust to waist ratio works with this style. The comfort level on this dress is absolutely outstanding and I can easily wear them all day.

 



Obviously I love this style so much I needed it in the Constellations Velvet version. A dark blue shiny velvet printed with silver outlines of each constellation. The same amazing fit but with a beautiful and almost magical print.

 
As the weather cooled last night I actually wore this piece out and loved how much it showed off my curves!
 



This the fabric on this piece is lush and so soft to the touch. I'm wearing both of these in an XL and the fit is perfect. These pieces are also super easy to pack and wear without the need to iron so they are the perfect dress for travel.

Now this post was supposed to be about an upcoming trip abroad but given the travel restrictions my husband and I had to cancel our holiday plans. While 100% bummed about this I'll be taking the time to do even more photoshoots and create more reviews.

The Stunning Sculptress

Last week I received my first ever order from Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore and I'm now a complete convert!  But firstly let me share an amazing discount code with you. Use TEER20 on any of your transactions at Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore for $20.00 off your order! This can be used for each order and has no expiry dates - SCORE!!!



This year I've been venturing out of my brand comfort zone and trying to test as many new and different styles as possible. I've been drooling over the styles from Sculptress for years but until this piece I've never tried their amazing products.


Well lets just say for the first ever style I've received from BGDCA the fit is 100% perfect. I'm wearing the Chi Chi bra in a 36HH and it's absolutely amazing. That perfect round shape, thick straps, full cup and that flat fit between each breast.


Usually trying a new brand is hit or miss but this style is amazing and I now know I can wear this size in any other colours or prints. The leopard and lace cups make for a stunning looking piece and I feel like this style is 100% my esthetic.


I'm wearing the matching high waisted Chi Chi underwear in a size 18 and they are a firm fit but super comfortable. The mixture of lace and silky leopard fabric continues on the bottoms and both pieces are topped off with a little black bow.


I honestly can't get enough of this set and will be wearing it very regularly. The fit is perfect for day to day wear and pairs perfectly with so many necklines.


I've paired the Chi Chi set with a lace robe from my collection and I feel amazing in this whole look.

So if you are in the market for some amazingly comfortable and stunning large cup bra sets be sure to check out Big Girls Don't Cry for all an endless supply of lingerie, sports bras, maternity pieces and swimwear.
