Striped Cold Shoulder Dress- How I wore it.

I went to the Logan premiere last night, the morning before I was feeling all bah humbug and I felt like I needed something new to wear.
So me and my stylist aka my daughter Emily went off on a shopping trip and I saw this dress, the fabric felt so soft, slightly ribbed even, so I turned to my friends on Facebook and they all said YES BUY IT (except for one person who voted NO)

I sized up to a 3X because I often use the dryer and I think it would shrink the fabric slightly, I like the loose fit and the length is perfect.

I would post a picture of it on the Farmers model here, but this dress is not available on the website yet.
You can see more of my outfit posts here.

 

 

Dress – Farmers rrp $70

Logan – Movie Review

LOGAN is brutal, merciless and powerful.
This is a character based movie done right, better then most of the X Men spinoff movies (although Dead pool still remains my fav).
If this really is Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine/Xmen movie then he defiantly exited in a blaze of glory.

 

The story is set in the near future, mutants are thinning out. They’ve either died or been hunted down. Logan’s (Hugh Jackman) healing power is not as strong as it used to be. He’s old and weary and taking care of professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border, accompanied by Caliban (Stephen Merchant). But their attempt to hide from the world gets interrupted when dark forces arrive at their doorstep looking for a certain young little girl.

When Wolverine unleashed. The violence is as graphic and as in your face as you could imagine it to be. So just that aspect alone will excite the diehard fanbase  wanting to see the destruction that could take place when Wolverine is pissed off.

The writing impeccable, it really digs deep into the characters, how vulnerable they are, how they long for a world where they can just be. I truly felt for Xavier and Logan, not only because they’re now in their older years but there’s also that father-son type of relationship that’s tough love and endearing and then there’s also the reluctant father daughter connection Logan has with X-23m which to me at times felt a bit cheesy, but heart warming none the less.  By the way, the little girl, Dafne Keen, who plays Laura is remarkable. So much power and energy, so much roar.

This is a movie that gives you action to its fullest degree and an emotional journey that’s breathtaking. The perfect film about the man who’s the best at what he does but what he does isn’t very nice.

It would appear to be a fond farewell to Wolverine and a heya to the next generation of Mutants.

Logan opens in New Zealand theaters on March 2.

The Media and Fat people

I am so annoyed at fat people getting Vilified in the media.

An article came out about how Farmers most popular size sold is now a size 18. I read some commentary from some dick saying ….
“oh why should retailers cater for over a size 14 they are promoting obesity”

You know what I think and feel..cos this is probably the most candid I have ever been about it.
I am

  • 6foot tall
  • wear a size 11-12 women’s shoe …
  • my feet fit them length wise I have big feet not fat feet. I
  • I am anything from a size 20 – 28 depending on the retailer and fit.
  • I am also obese
  • I am not in denial, I know what I weigh
  • And have no ongoing health issues,

I try to lose weight and I fail so I try again. I am mostly happy no matter what my weight – cos it doesn’t make me who I am.

We all look the same one the inside, we all love and loathe and bleed and breathe.

At this point I feel like talking about fat people in the media is just click-bait for the trolls.  (oh it’s a slow news day can someone pen a article about plus size clothing/bodies).

So let’s say all the retailers stop making clothes that cater to my body.

I will just have to walk around naked..

Don’t tempt me

Oh and if you are looking for retailers who do want fat money, my girl Meagan put out a fabulous resource list.

Lusting after…. The Ezibuy autumn addition

Hey guys. I have read your messages,
I know you all want to see my picks of the season, and you know Ezibuy is one of the places I shop at.   I wanted to put together a wee post of selected items from the new Autumn Catalogue to show you what I am lusting after.
I wish I won Lotto, so I could run out and buy everything and show you all the outfits worn all the ways but I didn’t win Lotto so we just have to use our imagination and check them out on the beautiful models.

lusting after ezibuy

You can see the full Autumn Catalog here

I especially love the skirts, I think that length is quite nice on me.  For footwear I really like that Ezibuy stocks footwear up to a size 12, I have not purchased any shoes from them for a while so I might need to just do ittttt.

Last season I was lucky enough to be given some clothes so I made a video, it was my first of this kind and I felt like the reaction from people was positive, there is definitely a want from people out there to see plus size clothes on plus size women as opposed to models.
Here is a few videos I have made if you want to check them out, please let me know in the comments what you think about my clothing picks above!
