christmas wishlist.
♥ 1. Style369 Leopard Print Panel Basque, £35 ♥ 2. Topshop Chiffon Leaf Wristwear, £10 ♥ 3. Topshop SAKURA Nude Patent Platforms, £62 ♥ 4. Topshop Cream Tiny Heart Seam Back Ankle Socks, £3.50 ♥ 5. ASOS Love on Cubes Bracelet, £6 ♥ 6. Topshop Angora Pearl Mittens, £16 ♥ 7. Topshop Taupe Embellished V-Back Blouse, £70 ♥ 8. Dorothy Perkins Flower Multiband Ring, £7 ♥ 9. Topshop Camel Peter Pan Collar Spotted Blouse, £38 ♥ 10. Topshop Lace Ruffle Panty, £14 ♥ 11. Dorothy Perkins Tan Plait Skinny Belt, £6


Its finally December so I can talk about Christmas!
As you can probably see my wishlist is mostly a Topshop wishlist! Topshop is not really a plus size-friendly store considering their largest size is UK 16 (US 12) and I just about fit into it, but even their shoes and accessories are to die for this season! How incredible are these slightly ridiculous (but very cute!) sequin hot pants?! I'm in love.
The company that owns Topshop (and also DP, Evans, etc) launched Style369 recently. Style369 is aimed at young plus sized women. I heard many people say it would be the Topshop for fat girls so of course I was beyond excited to see what they had to offer. So far it has been a disappointment. One look at their dresses page makes me depressed. Do they really think that most young girls want to wear those dresses? Not only are the prints awful but the cut of most is not flattering. Why can't they just extend Topshops sizes? Overall I think Style369 looks like the lovechild of Evans and Dorothy Perkins, nothing new, fresh or exciting. That said, beneath all of the granny print dresses and 3 inch heels I found a few gems, including the leopard print basque above!

I hope Santa is good to all of you girls this Christmas!

  3. I'm also loving that Topshop blouse but it's sold out in my size :(
    Cute wishlist!
    OMG I'd never heard of style365 before your post so a) *great* job PR people publicising it, esp considering I'm your target market and b) just looked at the stuff and it's pretty universally boke. Bleurgh.
    I think the best place for "plus size" stuff is ASOS. They just tweak things ever so slightly from their main range if need be, but most things go up to an 18 anyway.

  4. *Style369 rather. Although 365 would make more sense, IMO!

  5. Oooh, thank you for this post because I've been looking for THAT belt for a while finding either too short ones or too expensive ones. This one looks just fine and btw it's in the sale for only GBP4.20 now ;)

    You seem a big sucker for nude colour, right? :)

  6. I love how everything goes together! I agree that the leopard basque is stunning. I'd wear it as outerwear!

    Hope some of your holiday wishes come true :)

  20. I think that the plus size industry is so out of whack. I personally try, and keep a lot of options on my blog, so at least one plus size option. Recently I'm loving ASOS curve, the dresses are really cute. I'm not if it's your style. Your wish list is awesome, I want that bustier. The nude heels are really pretty too. You have great style. Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a wonderful day!

  34. number three - pleasepleaseplease!! and style369 doesn't seem too bad... but they really ought to just do what topshop makes but in larger sizes. why would it make a difference in what people want to wear?

    ps, i'm having a christmas jumper giveaway (:

  38. I want everything on your wishlist! I'm trying to pick the one item i love the most but its too hard :)
    I hadnt heard of style369 so ive just checked it out. The dresses do look awful...maybe its a 'awful on the hanger, amazing on' type situation?
    As the for the main model, she cant be bigger than a 10-12! It really annoys me when they dont actually use plus size models. They're getting a big thumbs down from me.
