I’ve decided to start a new feature highlighting the best emails from my inbox. I remember in my teens and early twenties, the best and only choices for Plus Size fashion were Evans and if I was lucky Etam. Now there is so much choice it’s actually amazing and every week I must receive at least half a dozen emails with the latest offers. These are my favourite picks from just a few.
Navabi – New Arrivals
Navabi was started in 2008 because they believe premium fashion shouldn’t stop at a size 16. For more information about Navabi check them out here. One of the things I love about Navabi is the detail they give about what size the model is and what size she is wearing. I had an email showing some of their new arrivals and these would be my top picks.
Studio 8 Tropical Print Dress – I love the versatility of this dress. It can be worn with some pumps and a denim jacket on the school run or glammed up for a night out having cocktails with the girls. The gorgeous Hayley from Curves n Curls featured this dress recently in a post so pop over and check it out here. Available in a UK14 – UK24.
Baylis & May Maxi Print Dress (left) – The first thing that jumped out at me about this dress was the print. I don’t usually wear maxi dresses as I’m yet to find one I actually like but this one might convince me. Available in a UK14 – UK28.
Velvet Pop Floral Print Dress (right) – I’m not going to lie, aside from the print, the major thing here was POCKETS!!! I love a dress with pockets. If I’m on the wall about a dress it can be a real game changer when decided whether to buy or not. Available in a UK16 – UK24/26.
New Look Curves – Sale Section
New Look relaunched their Curve range in March 2016 and is available online and in selected stores. The range features over 200 styles in sizes UK18 – UK32. This week’s email was promoting their “Up to 60% off” sale. Here are my top picks.
Weekend Appreciation Club Pyjamas – I estimate I spend at least half my life in pyjamas so it would be unjust not to feature some and these are just perfect. Slouchy looking top and jogger bottom – comfort central. Only size UK22, UK24 and UK26 still left at the time of publishing.
Blue Tie Front Dress – So I love blue and I love a dress so this is an obvious pick for me. I love the tie waist detail and it’s an absolutely steal at £12. Few sizes still available from UK18 – UK28.
Black Lace Mesh Panel Bodysuit – Truthfully this would be an impulse purchase. You know exactly what I mean. One of those things you see in a sale and immediately know you have to have it as you can envisage 1001 ways you are going to style it up and wear it but deep down you know you are never going to wear. Just looking at this makes me feel sexy so in my book that’s £9.00 well spent. Limited sizes still available from UK18 – UK26.
Nicky Rockets – New Design Release
The final delight from my inbox comes to you courtesy of Nicky Rockets who have just launched their latest t-shirt – FAT CLUB. “A celebration of our awesome shape and a homage to the anti-establishment anti-hero Tyler Durden from Fight Club.”
The Fat Club Rules are quite simple:
#1. First rule of FATCLUB – Be your best self
#2. Second rule of FATCLUB – F@*K the Haters
#3. Third rule of FATCLUB – No Discrimination
Your Life, Your Rules – ‘Viva La Fatclub’
I already have a couple of Nicky Rocket tees and am a huge fan of the slashed neck style. The pink wording makes this one a must for my collection. Their tees are available in slashed or round neck up to a 5XL (UK26-28) or a vest or fitted tee up to a 2XL (UK20-22). I’m a UK24 and I wear a 4XL.
