Velvet Keepsake - Curve Friendly Styles

Today marks the launch of Wheels and Dollbaby's Autumn/Winter range for 2017 - Velvet Keepsake.With plush velvet fabrics, lush furs, ruffled shirts and a rich colour palette you will fall hard for this amazingly elegant range. This collection celebrates the 30th Birthday of the iconic label and has a big focus on glamorous items with that rock Dollbaby edge.

For this post I wanted to share the items that would be perfect for my curvy readers in sizes 14 to 18. I can wear all 3 of these sizes depending on cut, fabric and fit so lets see what's on offer for us in this current collection.

Over the next month I'll be shooting some of these items so I'll be posting a full review with in-depth fit information for all of my favourite pieces.

One of the most loved skirts ever to exist, the Ballet skirt, has returned in black, pink and nude. Available up to a size 14 this skirt can be work paired with stunning blouses, a rock tee or tank and of course an amazing leather jacket. My personal favourite has to be the leather and all black look above!


The Claridges Dress has made a made a comeback this season in plush noir velvet. Amazingly tailored this style suits all shapes and sizes and is high on my lust list from this collection. Available up to a size 16 and perfect for hourglass figures. I really hope to shoot this style! 

The Donna available in up to a 14 is a crinkle sheer fabric stunning design that's made for twirling and dancing. I'm not too sure if I'll fit into this garment but I WANT it either way! Goal skirt maybe? Or maybe Wheels can create this to fit up to my waist and hip size pretty please? The fitted waist and sheer flare bottom really make this item absolutely stunning.


The classic sweater collection has two new styles this season! You can choose from the classic black with an adorable Wheels Dollbaby charm or the new rich red shade traditional dollbaby and velvet bow sweater. These are super stretchy and available up to a size 16. I myself wear the 16 and it's an absolute dream fit wise. Now which do I choose?


As we have just hit Autumn down under it's the perfect time to stock up on winter warmers and all of my favourite knits have returned in new prints and colour ways. Both available up to a size 16 and very oversized. I tend to order 12s or 14's in the oversized jumper as I like a firmer fit and the for the Klute I own a 16 but I'll be downsizing to a 14 this season as it's super generous. You will live in these styles all winter I promise.


Ruffled, neckties and silky sweet fabrics - YES PLEASE!! The Jane blouse is a busty girls dream and I honestly can't wait to get this item in my hot little hands. Both available up to a size 16 and from my personal experience with Dollbaby blouses/shirts I find they are generous enough to fit large busts and depending on the stretch in the fabric can accommodate me with ease as I own the skull print and I've modeled other button ups in 16's throughout the years. Fingers and toes crossed that I can rock this!!! 

More knits to rock all winter! I already own the cream logo sweater and I must have the La Pinup in my collection asap. These are so soft and warm and I love pairing them with faux leather pants or skinny jeans plus boots or heels. Both are available up to a 16.


Bring out your inner Adam Ant styling with the Le Pirate Girl jacket in Ponti available up to a size 14. This amazingly flattering cut creates amazing curves and can be worn button up or open. The stretch ponti fabric does wonders and accommodates larger measurements. The black Klute sweater has also returned to match the pale pink version and it's up to a size 16.


I didn't think it was possible to make the Mantrap dress even more lush but then I discovered this style in red, black or navy velvet and my heart skipped a beat. You can purchase this in a size 14 but I myself wear the 16 as I find the arm room a little more comfortable. This is the perfect evening dress for winter night paired with back seamed stockings and boleros or stoles.


More wiggles for the curvy dollbabies!! While I'm not a huge fan of high necklines the Cheongsam (also in red) dress is absolutely stunning but maybe suited to my less busy babes. The Velvet Decoratifs dress though has my name written all over it with a super low cut neckline, bust detailing and a hidden power mesh (makes you look and feel amazing) this frock is definitely on my lust list. Both of these amazing dresses are available up to a size 16. 


Lastly we have the most amazing coat I've ever laid eyes on and one that instantly made me drool when I saw this seasons look book. This faux fur leopard print winter coat is phenomenal and what glam rock dreams are made of! I have so many styling ideas and outfits planned for this coat I just need to save my pennies and get it! Now this coat is available up to a size 14 but I find these oversized coats can fit up a size so as a 16 I think the fit will be perfect!
Be sure to check back in the next few weeks for more in depth fit information and hopefully some amazing images!
