Floral Fancy with Yours Clothing


Ok, I said I was going to do a five minutes post but the words just aren't coming out of my fingers from inside of my head SO LOVELY PRETTY MAXI DRESS IT IS! 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Bardot Maxi Dress* - Yours Clothing 
Please play the Little House On The Prairie theme tune in your head whilst you view these pictures, I'm SO gutted I couldn't find a hill of tall grasses to run down but, with the number of bones I've broken since I've started this blog, I think it's very much for the best. This Yours Clothing dress is one of those lovely floaty light floral dresses that always looks good on other people but not me EXCEPT THIS ONE DOES. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I can only put the success down to the fact that the shape is loose yet the elasticated ruching, which starts at the top and extends to the waist, offers just a enough structure for my liking - plus it keeps the dress from falling off which is nice. 

SO. Maxi Dresses. They generally aren't are they? Especially not on me. I probably wouldn't class this one as maxi either, rather a long midi BUT I recently learnt that maxi dresses are tricky, especially light coloured ones on freshly cut grass - You get a weird green ombre effect and then when you wash them they just end up looking sad and grey and a bit like something Miss Havisham might wear. So long midi is just A-okay with me. Also, I quite like not wearing shoes. Mainly because I have broken toes but partly because I'm a raging hippie at heart.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I'm wearing a 16 here which is absolutely perfect so my advice would be to buy true to size, unless you're between sizes, in which case size down because life's generally easier when your dress doesn't fall down in my opinion. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
If you're in the market for an "all occasion" Summer dress, Yours have some fabulous  maxi dresses right now - I'm a big fan of this long sleeved number on gorgeous Jess and Poppy looks INCREDIBLE in this bardot.

A Retro Autumn with Yours Clothing

You all know I love a good year round retro look and this Autumnal outfit of bell sleeved mini dress and over the knee boots is currently rocking my world.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Khaki Swing Dress* - Yours Clothing
Dogtooth Blanket Scarf* - Yours Clothing
Over the knee boots - Primark 
The ladder detailing at the front of this Yours Clothing Swing Dress give it the feel of a dress much more expensive than its £26. It may be mini but as long as I don't stand in any wind tunnels my dignity will remain in tact. I'm wearing an 18 here but could have probably sized down to a 16, I just wasn't sure about that waistline -Turns out it's less skater cut and more swing which makes it nice and loose. The sleeves are also very true to size SO I'd recommend that if you're into this frock, go for your own size or the lower if you're between.  Coupled with an extremely versatile (and delightfully big!) monochrome Dogtooth scarf I'm feeling very mod chick.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

So I did it, I bought some over the knee boots. You may have noticed from this here blog that you read, I have long legs, looooooooong legs. I also have a pair of legs which are smack bang in the middle of regular and wide. This means that OTKs have always been well off my radar despite loving them deep down in my heart. Enter Primark with this utterly bloody perfect pair of size 8, block heel, pull up pair of dream boots. They fit me perfectly both in length and width, are comfortable and were only £20: WINNER!

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I love, love, LOVE this look.The 60s aesthetic is everything to me and Autumn is the perfect time to showcase it. It's likely that I'll put a pair of tights on with this from this day forward because BOY IS IT COLD but with a long woolen coat and my bobble hat I can see this being a key outfit for 2016.

I'd just like to thank my wonderful sister Tomato for taking these pictures - She's got MAD skillz.

Plus Size Prom Princess with Yours Clothing

I'm not a fan of Disney. There, I've said it. 
I appreciate it hugely but beyond The Aristocats and Robin Hood (which I LOVE) I'm not big on the old Princess meets Prince narrative. This said, the dress* I'm wearing in this post DID make me feel very much like a Disney princess and I did enjoy this, so maybe now's the time to re analyse my whole life...

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Chichi Pastel Blue Flared Prom Dress With Cut Out Back* - Yours Clothing
Floral Hair Grips - Accessorize (Similar HERE)
Shoes - New Look (Similar HERE) 
TALL GIRLS TAKE NOTE! This dress is mid-calf length and actually IS mid-calf length, also, the waist is actually cut to fit my waist as opposed to somewhere up around my boobs. In fact, the overall shape of this dress is utterly perfect for my body shape (hourglass with large bust and hips) but is one that I've always avoided because I'm a renegade - I really wish I hadn't because the triple layered skirt and sweetheart neckline make me feel phenomenal. I've also avoided cut-out backs in the past because it can limit bra choices but this design takes us larger busted women into consideration and this isn't an issue at all.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

With regards to fit, this is a 16 and I would class the fit as incredibly true to size, taking into account that there is no stretch at all. The skirt's given its shape with a mesh layer sandwiched between two satin layers to avoid that itchy scratchy feeling. There is also thin padding to the bust which gives support and a smooth hourglass shape. 

Finally: The colour, OH the colour; pastel blue is one of my absolute favourites but I find it incredibly difficult to wear without looking too much like a nurse. I think we can all safely say: I don't look like a nurse. It honestly seems to me that an awful lot of thought has gone into the design of this dress, I don't know if this is the same across the board with Chi Chi dresses but I'll certainly be keeping my eye on them for any events in the future.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I've worn the dress here with a pair of burgundy floral hair grips that I bought to for a burlesque night. I find hair clips infinitely easier to wear than a fascinator or one of these floral crown malarkeys which just make me look like I'm trying far too hard or live in a constant Snapchat filter... I think this look could work beautifully for a wedding (guest not bride) (Unless you want to in which case, YES) though I think I'd potentially struggle to fit down the pews...

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

In other news, I'm epically sunburnt. This is the one and only time that I'd recommend this advice but; Learn from my mistakes guys.

The Further North You Go with Yours Clothing

 Becky and I were recently invited to Sunderland for the launch of the fabulous new Yours Store and BOY DID WE HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY! 

The store is in The Bridges Shopping Centre, opposite Topshop (which I'm told is an ideal location) and the staff are absolute diamonds, each and every one of them. You can see pictures from the day on my Instagram and if you're up that way you should definitely call in. 

Until then, let's talk about what I wore.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

This is another "not a maxi" maxi dress - A style which I am coming to love this year. It's a soft, thick jersey and is made up of a short underlayer with a draped dip-hem top layer. The ruching and knot detail are what float my boat with this dress - It sits equally as well over leggings like those I'm wearing here as it does with bare legs. I kind of want to say more but it's one of those items that sells itself in my humble opinion. Plus it's only £29 which I think is incredible value for money indeed.

www.terribletumbles,co.uk   www.terribletumbles.co.uk
 
The dress is also available in marl and green so I'm seriously considering ordering it in all of the colours, it's just such a wardrobe staple for Summer. A word to the wise though; SIZE DOWN, this is a 16 and is ever so roomy because of the draping, I'm going to try a 14 in the khaki but keep this one in a 16 for general knocking about and manouvers.

I recently ordered some similar sandals to these from elsewhere and they were epically uncomfortable, so I wasn't sure how these would be but they're FABULOUS; I was on my feet all day and I can honestly say that my feet only hurt as much as any lazy office worker who is generally sat on their arse's would. I didn't realise when I ordered these that the block heel is gold but it is and these really adds to the luxe look of them. Size-wise, these are a 9 and are spot on for me. This said, they are smaller than your average Yours Sizing so maybe size up if you're a larger 9.

The earrings I'm wearing were hugely coveted by me after being influenced by Lovely Danielle Vanier - They're by Suzy Wan Deluxe and are currently the prettiest things I have in my jewellery box by a Country mile.

To counteract my extremely Northern journey, I have three days very much down South next week - Somebody put the kettle on...

Perfect Plus Size Jeans with Yours Clothing

Just a very quick post today to let you know that I've only gone and found the best casual jeans EVER.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Roll Neck - Vintage Dove House 87
Indigo Rip Detail Skinny Jeans - Yours Clothing
Block Heel Sandals - Yours Clothing
These jeans were chosen on an impulse, mainly because I don't have any trousers that aren't so tight you can see my dinner through them and I wanted a trouser option as the weather picked up. What a great impulse it was! 

These are a 16 and they are spot on size wise, I know they state online that they're skinny but I would say they're more of a slim fit straight leg and worn rolled up they give a fabulous fitted boyfriend look. The high waist means that I'm not always tugging at myself (That sounds rude. Don't know why) and as I've said in the past, I always feel more put together with a high-waisted trouser, everything just looks so much better with them.

Weird fact: I get annoyed by how often plus size distressed denim is so obviously false; the thighs are a giant big bleached white patch and the rips don't have that "oops I just did this whilst being an international rock star" look to them. I've realised that Yours Clothing denim doesn't have this weird creepy look to it and have been pleasantly surprised on many an occasion - These jeans are no exception.

I've mentioned these sandals before but they've pretty much not been off my feet so TA DAAAA.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The top was yet another vintage find c/o Dove House No 87 in Hull - Whoever it is that keeps taking in Size 16 and 18 items in to the shop is basically me but from the 60s  because this fits like a glove and brings me much pleasure. I bought it thinking it would go in the drawer until Autumn but there Summer was and there it went and I'm back in the old velour rollnecks...

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I've got an LBD and a little blue two piece coming up on here so the sun wants to get its act together or we're going to have a pneaumonia incident on our hands...

A Winning Roll Neck with Yours Clothing

The sun has arrived!!!! IT IS HERE. I celebrated by nearly breaking my neck cleaning out the shed which is beyond structurally unsound and trying to revive a very unloved lawn with some pound shop grass feed purely so that it would look nicer under my new sun lounger which I don't intend to move from for the next month. So that's what I've been doing, hope your life has been moderately more exciting.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Cowl Neck Maxi Dress* - Yours Clothing

Earrings - VERY old (Similar HERE)
I have to tell you about this jacket - This is so outside of my usual style but just fabulous. I chose it because I needed a light coloured jacket for when I don't want to be too goth of an evening. Also I wanted to look like Dolly Parton BECAUSE WHO DOESN'T?!? I'm not going to lie, the tassels are moderately flamboyant for me but I love the look on my husband's face whenever I wear it - Part horror and part extreme jealousy. A must for all relationships.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

This dress is going to be the saviour of my Summer. The ribbed material hangs beautifully - I've worn it today with my flipflops and sunglasses and it's incredible in the heat; Really light and genuinely easy to wear. This is a 16 and it is extremely roomy which works well for me with regards to my hips that do not lie and butt that will not quit. I know the website says maxi but maxi rarely IS maxi for me - This said, I love the length on me and the side splits make it that extra bit slinky, perfect for day into evening.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

You may recall seeing some very similar shoes on my feet last year but these ones are in fact brand new, size 9 and at £23.20 an absolute steal. Friends, these sandals are SO comfortable, I just can't get over how active I can be in them whilst still looking all 70s and chic. I know I say this often but Yours really are so on the money right now - I'm going to get so much wear out of this outfit it's RIDICULOUS, plus I have another Yours look coming up very soon, involving GOLD SHOES (I shit you not) so stay tuned

The Plus Size Pinafore with Yours Clothing

I've got that Sunday feeling and it ain't good, it's been a lovely weekend but they're never quite long enough are they? 
Luckily I get to start the week with a new and rather wonderful acquisition in the form of this perfect Yours Clothing Pinafore Dress*.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Black Ponte Skater Pinafore* - Yours Clothing
Shirt - Vintage
Ankle Boots - New Look (Similar here)
Suede Look Fringed Handbag* - Yours Clothing 
I was recommended the dress by the lovely Jacqs at Yours and all I can say is: Yours have utterly nailed it. I've mentioned in the past that I generally avoid the skater shape but for some reason, this really works for me. The length is spot on and there are pockets. Ten out of ten. This dress is just so easy to wear - Whether it be with a Tee, vintage shirt or roll neck; It's effortless.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I wore the pinafore with one of my vintage shirts. This one was from the same place as the blue dress I bought last week. It's really unique in that it's longline with split sides - The only issue I have with it is that it's roughly two sizes too small for me, meaning I can only wear it under things. Otherwise you can see my tummy button. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Suede Look Fringed Handbag* - Yours Clothing 
I'm a fan of fringed bags but have never been able to use one without feeling extremely conspicuous. Like I'm going to get it caught in a lift door or dip it in my dinner. This Suede look fringed number from Yours Clothing is ideal, practical (yeah I said that) yet still very "On trend" as people in the know say.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

After saying how few clothes I've bought of late, I substantially extended my vintage wardrobe this weekend thanks to a kilo sale, so there will be some extremely gaudy prints and hues gracing the pages of this blog very soon...

Plus Size Valentines with Yours Clothing

Despite me being literally the least glam human on Earth I actually like a good slinky chemise 
(As do my cats... Hence me never being able to wear one outside of a locked room...)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Kimono Robe and Chemise* - Yours Clothing 
This silky number from my faves over at Yours clothing is treble-y good because not only do you get the chemise and the robe BUT YOU ALSO GET A COAT HANGER. This may not sound particularly exciting to you but it is a silky padded coat hanger and so you can use it OUTSIDE of your wardrobe to display things like people who have their lives together do. I am going to put my lanyard on it.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I sincerely apologise for everything looking a bit crinkled but this is my life and this is how I wear things. Its my signature style if you will. If you think this is bad, you should see the contents of the chest of drawers behind me.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The back detail is gorgeous, with cross over lacing and a deeeeeep opening which I'vve not photographed because:
a) Bum crack
b) Crap 90s tattoo
And OK, so it only just covers my arse but I suppose that's the point of it... It really is a very romantic piece, sweet and sexy without being at optimum saucy level. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Yours Clothing have all kinds of saucy shizzle going on at the moment, from cheeky bustiers to romantic sets like the one my good and sexy friend Becky is bedecked in here so there's something for everyone this Valentines. Even if it's a big lovely pair of pyjamas.

Seasonal Jumpsuits with Yours Clothing: Take 2

I told you there'd be more jumpsuit action didn't I? Well here it is:
www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Black Lace Jumpsuit* - Yours Clothing
Red Shoes - Old New Look (Similar HERE) 
I first saw this Yours jumpsuit on gorgeous model Bara when we were shooting the #All Yours advert and I needed it. What I will say is this: This jumpsuit looks incredible on women with a fuller bust - I love how it looks on me but to get the full detail of the scalloping and crossover I think you need to be one of those "Boobs that go outwards not across" people. Saying this, it's really nice to have the option to cover up a bit or reveal the gals.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Another thing that I'll say for this jumpsuit - It is wonderfully warm. The double layer makes it incredibly cosy and comfortable which in turn makes it ideal for a Christmas meal/dinner/three boxes of after eight mints on the settee. Plus, if you decide to go out in this stupidly cold weather that we're having, you are unlikely to catch frostbite. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I'm really starting to get into the party spirit at the moment, this is in part due to the incredible mulled wine I bulk bought from M&S and have been necking like Ribena. Also, Ferero Roche. If I carry on at this rate I'll have gout within a week...

Seasonal Jumpsuits with Yours Clothing

You know I love a good Jumpsuit and Yours Clothing have come up trumps with this one.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Metallic Jumpsuit* - Yours Clothing
Cape Jacket - Jameela Jamil for Simply Be
Shoes - New Look (Similar HERE)
 The suit* is made of a metallic thread based nylon rather than glitter so it doesn't shed which my cats are thrilled about as they don't look like small furry pixies after sitting on me. It's also extremely lightweight and despite the narrow straps, gives an excellent coverage meaning you can wear a good bra underneath. Also the length is a thumbs up for tall people. 

I'm wearing an 18 in these pictures and it fits brilliantly - A 16 would be fine but I like to minimise the chance of camel toe at all times. All. Times. For that reason, I've also added a belt because it allows me to create a bit more shape and draping at the middle whilst strengthening the barrier between me and lady part catastrophe.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The Cape Jacket is Jameela Jamil for Simply Be. I've wanted a cape jacket since seeing Kate in her lush multicoloured dream coat, so when Simply Be brought one out in classic (Read: Too sensible) black I was sold. It truly is a powerful, powerful jacket. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I've not yet worn this outfit outside of the garden path but my festive social calendar is starting to get busy and I intend to never be less than 100% sparkly. 
  
www.terribletumbles.co.uk

I have another jumpsuit to show you this week, it's not as spangly but it's a little bit saucier... (At least it's meant to be, let's see how I pull it off...)

If you didn't already know...#AllYours

You may know what I am about to tell you, in which case you will be bored STIFF of seeing pictures of his BUT I AM GOING TO TELL YOU ANYWAY AS THIS IS MY WAVE AND I AM RIDING IT UNTIL I EITHER FALL OFF OR SOMEONE KICKS ME OFF.


Let me start by showing you the following:


Yes, that is me going "pow", it is also me sitting on a chair in my birthday suit like the floozie that I am. But WHY I hear you say! Well I've been bloody lucky, that's why.

I decided early this year to enter the Yours Clothing #YoursNeedsMe competition as part of my "Just say yes" vibe. The competition was to become the face of the Yours Clothing A/W campaign and feature on their TV advert. I am going to level with you here - I DID NOT THINK I STOOD A CHANCE. Genuinely.

To cut a long story short; following photos, videos, a hilarious casting which I hope nobody will ever see, wracked nerves, a lot of disbelief and extreme smacking of my gob, I became one of the chosen four. And that is when life as I knew it changed. The phonecall I received the day after the casting went as follows:
Producer: "Emma?"
Me: *squeak*
Producer: "The director really liked you"
Me: *squeak*
Producer: "Can you come to Palma in two weeks?"
Me: *Is dead on the floor has died from shock but is also saying "yes please are you sure I think you have the wrong number I touched my nose with my foot in the casting how can you want me I'm old and I fall over all the time and oh my gosh yes please please don't change your mind how much did my Husband pay you...."*


www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The advert shoot was utterly mind blowing  For a start, along with the four professional models, we were flown out to Palma (The one in Spain) (Is there another one?) Put in a beautiful hotel, taken for delicious meals and then put to work...The shoot day was awesome, the work that Yours, Chief Productions and TBWA put in was enough to make me shattered just thinking about it. We were collected at 6am and taken to the set, from the moment we arrived it was a flurry of hair, makeup, styling, muffins (you can put a girl in nice clothes but you cant make her a model...) and then I was up. I did some dancing, some wiggling about and a sh*t tonne of sweating (in my defence, I was wearing a parka and a woolly hat in 40 degree heat)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The director was a star, he knew exactly how to get the best out of me...and how to get me to take my clothes off (I'm a sucker for a pretty face). Which takes us to that shot. A lot of people have asked if I'm actually naked. I'm not telling you. All I'm saying is that the chair had to be burnt after filming...

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

A couple of months later the girls were back together in a moderately less sticky climate to put together an A/W lookbook and shoot the photos which you may have seen in every window of every Yours Clothing store in the country...(HUMBLE AREN'T I?!)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The Yours clothing team are amazing. Genuinely. Being around them is like being with friends, they looked after us, supported us and spoilt us rotten (SO better than friends really...I might see if I can keep them...) We got to try on the A/W15 Heritage range, which is SO far up my street - There is not an item I didn't want (Except the parka which I've fallen out with for trying to kill me in the 40 degree Palma heat)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
 My favourite shot from the day with Tia, love this girl <3
All clothes are available at www.Yoursclothing.co.uk
I honestly have not tired of friends messaging me pictures of shop windows in all reaches of the UK - This is a once in a lifetime experience, I am not a model, this will not happen for me again so I am going to enjoy every single second of it (Including opening the Meadowhall store which I will tell you more about very soon!)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

For me, in order to invest in a brand, I need to know that it has integrity and that it truly cares for its customers. So many brands are happy to make money from plus size women, they'll use plus size bloggers in their campaigns and pay lip service to diversity but when it comes to the crunch, the models they fall back on are a size 14-16 (at the most...). Now don't get me wrong, I'm a size 16, and I love seeing women of my size online - Simply, It makes it easier to see how clothes are going to look on me. 

BUT, I am in the majority, I am represented everywhere

Comments on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are testament to the fact that women want representing, and not just in terms of size diversity. Plus size women of colour have gone all this time with minimal representation in the world of fashion at any size (Steph from A Nerd About Town speaks about this HERE). It is something that many of us take for granted. And it ain't right.

www.terribletumbles.co.ukwww.terribletumbles.co.uk

The models used for the ad and the women who won the competition range from a size 14 - 26. They are Yours clothing customers, they come from different backgrounds, have different lives, look different; women of colour, tall women, short women, glamorous women, talented women and well...me... 

I honestly could not be prouder to be a part of this. By no means am I saying "Look, Yours have fixed it all we can forget about under representation now" but they are becoming known for using a diverse range of models, (for example Tess Holliday and the utterly breathtakingly stunning Olivia Campbell). They are making a change and I sincerely hope that other brands will stand up and take notice.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
L- R: Me, Tia, Linzi, Poppy
The experience was incredible but I can honestly say that these three women made it everything it was; Linzi, Tia and Poppy are three of the most beautiful, dynamic and unique women I have had the pleasure to meet. Every minute with them has been like spending time with old friends, I guarantee to you here and  now that this will not be the last you see of them so keep your eyes peeled (and just remember I called it!) 
www.terribletumbles.co.uk
I hope that you love the campaign and advert as much as we loved being part of it. Your feedback and support so far has made me weepy on many an occasion and further proves me what a kick ass awesome group of readers this blog has.
Finally, I urge you: When an opportunity arises - Take it.

High Fashion With Yours Clothing

Fashion week is almost upon us, as such I have taken the unprecedented seasonal step of FLASHING MY LEGS. These legs are very brown. Very brown indeed. They've had a full week in the sun so even if they look whiter than a polar bear, I can assure you that they are not (They are. They really are)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Floral Skater Skirt - Yours Clothing 
Chiffon Blouse with jeweled collar - Yours Clothing 
Wedge Ankle Boots - Yours Clothing
Earrings - Yours Clothing
I can't lie, when I hear the words "High Fashion", I think "not terribly wearable" but these last three words are not synonymous with Yours Clothing so in putting together this outfit I've gone for a wearable yet fashionable silhouette which is one you won't usually see on me. Saying this, I love the shape that you can get from scuba - the effect of a full skirt without the masses of fabric, and over a fitted shirt I think it looks very chic indeed. The detailing on the collar of this shirt is utterly beautiful - to be honest, there was no need for the earrings but I just like them so very much that I bling-ed it up to the max. Finally, the boots are a size 9 and are ridiculously comfortable (Again, not very high fashion of me...)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

My absolute dream high fashion look is basically anything Vivienne Westwood - I know so many women love a bit of Viv - For me it's the structure, the bold prints and STUPIDLY high platforms. In fact, Yours are giving a strong nod to this look in their A/W range: Tartans shawls, chunky ankle boots and tailored shirts - I can't wait to get my grubby little mits on some of it.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Just a few words of advice with these items:
The skirt comes up big - Like REALLY big. This is a 16 and I think I could have gone at least two sizes smaller to wear it on my waist - So size down!
The shirt is a bit on the tighter size. This is an 18 and it is a bit gapey around the busoms - So size up! 
(Yours' sizing is generally spot on for me so this is a one off)

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

UKPSFW is this weekend and it looks to be fabulous - I'll be keeping my eyes open for some catwalk inspo!
