River Island Plus

River Island Jumpsuit 6

If you guys aren’t already aware, River Island have recently started incorporating plus sizes into their main range and I’m here to tell you that the pieces are absolutely fantastic! River Island have recently launched their second collection for the range, which includes loads of vibrant prints, sharp tailoring and a generous helping of monochrome delights. One item that i’m definitely loving at the moment is the Navy Floral Print Romper within the River Island Plus range.

The romper is made of a crepe material and features a West African inspired print mixed with some floral designs and has a drawstring waist, making it easily adjustable. The romper is the perfect piece for going to a festival, going for a date night or just hanging out with friends and it’s incredibly comfortable!

So far, I’ve been so utterly impressed with the range especially when it comes to the sizing, as the pieces fit incredibly true to size AND the arm holes manage to fit comfortably around my arms which is such a bonus for me. A huge congratulations to River Island on yet another successful collection!

I’m starting to curate pieces for my summer wardrobe just in case I decide to have a cheeky vacation in-between and thought this a-line Samya dress from House of Fraser* would be perfect.

The Portrayal of the Fat, Black Woman

So I recently stated on social media that i’d like to start writing about subjects I feel strongly about, and I thought I’d start off by writing briefly about a topic that bothers and frustrates me greatly; the portrayal of the fat, black woman within the media and to a greater extent, society.
