the review - british plus-size fashion weekend 2014.

As you saw on a previous post, I was invited along to the media day of the BPSFW. This particular event went down on Friday 14th February, along with so many other it was definitely a successful day.

I had the chance to speak to designers and models and get an insight to new and current plus-size fashion and I learned SO much. It was amazing to be in a room full of people where being plus-size was being embraced and celebrated.

 Be sure to check out all the links to see more from each designer.

Apologies for the picture heavy post! I also tried to get a video up of the catwalk but I am having mad technical issues so stay tuned for that in a separate post.

Did you make it to the event? What do you think of all the plus-size designers?

one can dream...

I have a few posts that I need to get up for you guys within the next few days, but due to some technical difficulties and the fact that I am currently having the time of my life in Lisbon, these posts may just have to wait for a second.

Anyone who knows me will know that I have a weakness for designer items. When I have my eye on something, I won't let go until I get it or find a more reasonable alternative to fill its space.

With my two best friends fast asleep behind me, I thought I'd do what I do best and explore the internet for new things to buy and blog about it.
Here are my current obsessions:

Saint Laurent tote / Alexander Wang iPad clutch / Saint Laurent loafers / Kenzo tote

One can most definitely dream...

I never stop shopping, jayj x.

crossEyes london event.

February 14th...Valentine's day, the beginning of London Fashion Week, media day at British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend and the CrossEyes London blogger's event...I was a busy girl.

As a fellow four-eyes, being invited to a blogger's event for a glasses brand was like being at home away from home. I was surrounded by designer frames of all different shapes, sizes, materials and styles...and all at my disposal to try on.

CrossEyes is a Danish chain of opticians that specialize in creating a personal atmosphere and experience for each and every customer. All of the frames are placed very openly in the store, allowing you the freedom to try on every frame and find what you need to suit your taste and style. You then get a free eye test and then get your glasses made for you, all with a very personable service.

I like my glasses to reflect my personality as well as my facial features so I am always looking for big, fun and quirky looking frames. 

 I think I must have tried on every single pair of glasses that they had in that store, but I must say my favourite were probably this style; fun and quirky, yet, sophisticated.

Be sure to check out their official website, twitter and Instagram to check out their concept and find your own favourite style.
