Travel diaries – Cargo shorts… are not dead.

I have started getting into shorts and decided to buy cargo shorts for my recent trip. 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈

They seemed fairly easy going and just want I needed for the hot climate. 

I didnt think these Cotton Cargo shorts looked so bad with high neck sleeveles’s shirt and my Sam Edelman Fringed Sandals.

Travel diaries -Wide leg trousers.

I have always been a fan of wide leg / Palazzo trousers. I tend to travel with at least one pair on each of my holidays.  

This cut of trousers are very flattering for us hippy, voluptuous, curvy, plus size women. Don’t ask me why but it’s something to do with the proportions and the visual illusion created with the trouser leg going straight down from the waist to the hem. 

Anyway, I really wanted to share my secret find. Buying good fitting clothing is no easy feat. When Friends and family members tell me that a shop has long length trousers, I usually do not listen. Whats long for an average height woman, may not cut it for a tall sister. 

I vaguely remember someone saying that Zara trousers are long in length.  They were on sale and had my size so I added three pairs of trousers to my basket and checked out. 

Pleasantly suprised with the fit and length would b an understatement. One pair was actyally sweeping the floor. A luxury tall ladies rarely have.

So if your ever shopping for wide leg or palazzo trousers, I would say give Zara a try. 

Do let me know what your experiences are with Zara trousers. 
Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

Summer shorts

Y’all know that I am not a huge fan of showing off my legs.  That said,we make exceptions while catching rays in sunny locations. I bought these denim shorts and they made me fall in love my legs all over again. 

I am now of the veiw that every girl should own at least one pair of Denim shorts. They are great for the beach, to parties and Not to mention totally wearable on those hot summer days.

They are the perfect stretch, high waisted and a cool shade of blue.

I added a longline kimono to this outfit for that swirly carefree blowing in the wind look. I just love it.

5 reasons why I have been In love with ASOS Sinnceee!!!!


As its Valentines day, am calling a spade a spade and laying my cards down.
I have been loving Asos for a minute.
I am always quick to embrace any tall range, but the love for Asos is very different.
Here is why:

1- I have a HUGE issue with things not fitting well. I have been a fitting model for years and it has made me obsessed with pukered or cracking stitches, garment balance etc …
It makes all the difference when cloths are fitted on various sizes and graded well. Thank you Asos for using real models and getting you grading right on most occasions and your fitting is pretty consistent 👏👏👏👏.
I know a size 16 will always fit from Asos.

2- Sadly Asos does not have a physical shop anywhere and there is nothing worse than seeing something online , ordering it only to realise it’s totally not what you expected. Thank God for the genius who came up with the Asos catwalk view. 👌.
It makes such a difference. I can see how the garment fits and moves on an actual body.

3- I get super annoyed when I have to pay for delivery.  Yes I know people shouldn’t work for free but I always place my order then remember I forgot to add an item to the basket. 😒. So I have to order again and pay for delivery all over again.  Asos on the other hand gives me free delivery so I can order and order till my card gets declined. If your impatient like me. You can gave unlimited next day delivery for just £9.99. ✔

4- I love that when I click on Asos tall, I get a variety of other tall brands .  No need to leave the site. It’s all there.  Thanks Asos for bringing tall brands together. 

Finally.. it can be a real struggle to get tall clothes that look and fit great. Am not complaining because things have improved alot from when I was a teenager.
I have to say Asos is number 1 for keeping their tall range current, upto date and restocked. As I write this post there are 450 tall styles to choose from.  Tall women  need and love choice. It just thrills me.

I really could go on and I will just mention this one last thing plssss.
Don’t you just love that Asos prices is reasonable.  I was blessed with my height. Don’t penalise me with a higher price tag JUST because the item is tall. !

Ok … thats me done 

See you soon.

Oh… Happy Valentines day 😉

Travel Diaries – Boxy Tops

Hey guys…
I had a great achievement today.   I have owned this particular boxy top for the longest while. I just couldn’t style it right and I didn’t think it fitted my shape.
Today I just wore it regardless of all.
I don’t think it looks too bad … right ?

Unfortunately, I forgot to capture the back but it’s pretty sheer and unlined.





Until the next post ✌ ✌ ✌ & ❤  ❤ ❤

Travel Diaries -Pink Affair

Sometimes girls just ‘wanna’ be girls. I find the colour pink to be so girly but once in a while it’s good to indulge.

Favourite Fall Flats

Hey Guys, I just wanted to share with you some of my Favourite Fab Fall Flats… yikes.. that’s such a tongue twister.  I would not say it in a hurry if I were you.

PSX_20151002_223757[1] PSX_20151002_224055[1]

I do love my flat days, especially for the times when practical and comfort are the rule of the day.

I fell in love with these nude patent pumps just because of the embellishment *coveringface* is that sad?? Yes I can be super girlie and I would say YES to some sparkles any day.

IMG_6771[1]So pretty!

Brogues have never been so trendy.  Topshop really pushed the boat out with this contrast toe cap, lace-up front and cut out style.


Hope you like my Fab Fall flats collection. Do let me know which trendy flats you have added to your shoe collection recently.

Black Krave cut out Brogues- Topshop



Perfect Pleats

Skirts are essentials in every ladies wardrobe.  How much better when the skirt is a midi, pleated and printed.

Yessss🙌🙌. That’s triple glory in my books.

Pleated skirts have an element of “back to school” and it reminds me of my much cherished school days.  I hated my pleated kilt skirt back then. Who would have known that I would be investing in pleated skirts now. On a more serious note, this skirt is lush and it would make the perfect center piece for every outfit.

I am obsessed with movement and this skirt has got it all and a bag of chips. Although not part of the tall range at Topshop, I just had to click buy.

The sad part of life is that you can’t always get what you want, when you want it.

So this is my secret.

When I can’t find a style in the tall range, I always check out the standard range.  Generally I can get away with a midi length in the standard range.

Ta daaa!!!

Never let your height make you feel disadvantaged


This shirt works so well as a high waist number.  Can you see what I mean by the length. Perfect for my long legs

Play time

With the summer FINALLY visiting the UK it’s officially play time.

I am totally not leg confident but this playsuit adds variety to the everyday choice of shirt, dress or trousers.


I love the skirted front of this number.  It is not as covered as I would have liked but I subconsciously feel less exposed.


The deep cut back means you need to have your bra game on point.  I decided to wear my clear back bra from Debenhams with this playsuit and it worked well. If your too blessed to not be able to go bra less you might want to consider a good  bra before purchasing.
For the curvy ladies getting a good fitting bra can be the bane of our lives not to mention a multi-functional one.

I am not convinced that this playsuit is the most comfortable but I know for sure that it brought the heat.🔥🔥🔥
And that ladies is the price we sometimes have to pay.


With an outfit that speaks volumes my accessories were kept to a minimum.


Words can not describe it but there is something about having your hands in your pocket and strutting “your stuff”. We see it on the runway all the time…It’s oozes confidence.
