Is it a Coat? is it a Cape?

‘I feel like i should be someones boss in this!’

This Sunday i decided to take the ‘Cape-Coat’ for a little test drive.

First stop was breakfast, then a trip to Ikea, and then some shopping (obviously with a photoshoot break against the nicest wall ha!)

Honestly i did feel a little self conscious at first but that very quickly disappeared as they day went on, i spotted few people looking me up and down or the more discreet ones would smile as they look at the coat. A couple people even asked me where its from and complimented the outfit, including the the owner of the cafe we had breakfast in earlier in the day.

My verdict on the cape is that i LOVE it!

I think their fun, bold and just add a little bit of creativity to a simple outfit. Though i can say  that as much as i do love the cape i won’t be walking around the streets with all my jackets hanging off my shoulders, as i feel thats just not practical for everyday. This type of jacket helps you achieve that edgy fun look without having to walk like a robot so it doesn’t fall off your shoulders when you try to reach for your phone, keys or top shelf!

Take the Plunge

‘I cant wear a bra with this’

In this post i stepped out of my comfort zone and took pictures in a dress i would usually just say i cant ever get away with.

Weirdly enough it was kinda liberating and fun to do! Obviously i was still self critical of almost every picture but i did it and posted online for everyone to see.

So heres me, strutting my stuff in a very racy dress!

A low plunge dress is definitely a tricky one but nothing tit tape or a low plunge bra cant sort out!

Although i was a little worried about how much this would hug onto my body and not really flatter anyone with a little extra junk, it fits really nicely, a great length for my 5’1 frame! (I’m wearing a UK 12)

Well, here is the thing…I’m not a size 8 so I don’t fall into the slim category neither am i a size 14/16 so i don’t fall into the plus size category, but either of these sizes can look just as great in these dresses. My frustration comes from feeling as though every time there is a step forward in the fashion industry (which is a a lot thanks to all the positive body movements and people working on this), there is simultaneously a group of people being excluded and left feeling ‘uncategorised’, as if that is somehow a bad thing.

So this post is for anyone feeling fed up with this issue.
