Happy Haunts!

Hi Friends!

The spookiest time of year is just around the corner! The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air and we are all digging out our snuggly jumpers and coats!

Halloween sees the release of lots of awesome accessory, clothing and homewear collections so I’m helping you guys out with a round up of some of my faves from this year!

Black Heart Creatives

It’s no secret that this is one of my favourite jewellery brands. This year Charlotte has truly outdone herself with her amazing Halloween collection! I had to stop myself from buying everything!!

Here are a few of my faves from the collection that dropped today

You can buy this collection here but be quick as I expect this will sell out very quickly!!

ASOS Curve

ASOS Curve release a few Halloween items each year, this year the pickings are slim at the moment but hopefully more will be released in the coming weeks!

So far you can buy the following

ASOS Curve items are available here and again, I don’t think they have unlimited stock so it may be worth looking as soon as you can!

Shop Disney UK

I love this time of year at Disney as the villains get their chance to shine! Shop Disney has plenty of Halloween Merch this year, I have picked just a few of my fave things

You can find all the shop Disney Halloween goodies here – my selection has only scraped the surface of what they have on sale l, go check it out for yourself!

EMP

A quick search for ‘Villains’ or ‘Halloween’ will find you some awesome bits on EMP although I’m not entirely sure it’s only limited to this time of year. I thought I’d include a few of my fave bits anyway!!

I hope you like the items that I have found for the spooky season!

What’s your fave Halloween find this year?

Lots of love

Disney Villains – The Horoscope Collection

Hi Friends,

I have been thinking for some time about making a collection of artwork based around a theme. Villains are obviously my favourite of all Disney characters and with it coming up to Halloween the majority of my inspiration ideas centred around villains.

After much deliberation and doodling I decided to do a series of Disney Villains as Horoscopes, not only did I want to depict them in the specific style of the Horoscope signs but I also wanted the ‘negative’ traits of that sign to be representative of the villain that I chose … quite the task I set myself!

The idea behind this Collection is that all of the designs will eventually be added together to create a fabric that will be used to make bespoke border skirts with the entire Horoscope represented and obviously 12 villainous favourites. I will be releasing a character per month in line with the star signs changing, which means that the final design will be August – September 2019 just in time for me to get the fabric made for next Halloween! (didn’t I plan that well)

So, who is the first design you my be asking?

September 23 – October 22 = Libra

Libra negative traits include; Impatient, indecisive, insensitive, complainer, manipulative, Co-dependent, self-indulgent, Gossipy, Fragile, Selfish and Sulky

To me, these traits perfectly represent Yzma

Yzma is shown with her arms in a scale like position to represent the Libra scales with Kronk’s good and bad conscious on each hand for balance.

I have made this design available on my Redbubble on a variety of items, I will shortly have prints available too.

This particular design works well as a standalone and during consultation a lot of non-Libyans asked for me to make it available on its own without the Horoscope so you can purchase Yzma without her Horoscope branding on products here and she looks like this

The next design will be released mid October, I really hope you like this idea and enjoy this series, I have put a lot of heart into this.

Thanks in advance for being supportive as always

With love

Disney Loungefly @ Zavvi

Hello Friends!!

Being a plus sized lady, I can’t often buy Disney clothing ☹️ This means that the easiest way for me to show my Disney side on a daily basis is via accessories, more specially bags.

I am an obsession Disney bag collector, I probably have over 50 Disney bags and the majority of my collection come from Loungefly.

Loungefly is a brand that, until recently, was only really stocked on Amazon (at extortionate prices) or in boutique shops that had imported from America (at extortionate prices).

I know that since Shop Disney launched in the U.K. they have some Loungefly bags available but Zavvi have launched their Loungefly collection in the past couple of weeks and have by far the biggest online collection at reasonable prices!

Here’s a selection of some of my fave designs!

Minnie Backpack

Seven Dwarves Pencil Case/makeup Bag

Mickey Crossbody Park Bag

Disney Villains Backpack

Mickey Backpack

Belle Embossed Handbag

Have you had a chance to look at the Loungefly collection? What are your favourite pieces?

Have a lovely day!

Cath Kidston X Snow White Collection – Sneak Peek!

A sneak peek of the AMAZING new Snow White collection by Cath Kidston has just dropped into my mailbox and all I can say is WOW!

You all know I’m a HUGE fan of all the collaborations that Cath Kidston have done with Disney. I own pretty much all of the Alice Collection (even as far as buying clothing items that didn’t go up to my size that I amended to suit!) which was, by far my favourite collaboration. However, the designs coming out for the original OG Princess Snow White are really something special!

I thought I’d share some of my faves from the items that I’ve seen so far.

The scattered blossom and singing birds collections are by far my favourite

There are also some lovely clothing items and pyjamas that caught my eye

The whole feel to the items that feature Snow is very simplistic and feminine staying true to Cath Kidston Style.

This bag is by far my favourite item of the collection and I may not be able to resist treating myself …

The collection drops onto the Cath Kidston website and in stores on Thursday the 20th September, be sure to be quick as the popular items can sell quite quickly!

Which items are your faves?

Who would you like to see a collection for next?

Plus Size Disney – All my outfits on my last trip

Hello Friends!

This is a little late but things have been crazy busy since I got back from my last DLP trip!

The last time I was at Disneyland Paris was for the Fandaze event so the clothes that I wore were mostly designed for the occasion!

The first night we went for a fabulous meal at Inventions restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel for our friend Gaëtane’s birthday. I wore a dress I had made myself …

This is a Princess vs Villains dress which I made from an old Primark duvet set! One single sized duvet cover made this entire dress which I was most impressed with!

I teamed it with a black cardigan from Yours clothing which is seasons old and a set of hand made Ariel vs Ursula crystal ears that I made myself.

I love this dress and can’t wait to wear it again on the cruise I have coming up!

The following day was Fandaze!!

For this momentous occasion I designed my own fabric and made myself a dress with it! My fabric had all my fave Saturday afternoons characters on it, you can see it up close in the photo below …

I do wish I had worn a belt with this dress on the night as it did look a bit shapeless as the design is so fussy, I did get lots of lovely compliments though and it was nice and cool in the heat.

I made myself matching crystal ears featuring the characters on my dress.

The following day we had further Fandaze events as part of our package and I had another bespoke dress to wear to this too! This time Mark had designed the fabric, sadly after making his shirt there wasn’t enough for me to have a full dress but this was the compromise

I really liked this dress and although I wish I’d added some detail to the skirt it is really flattering to wear and got me so many compliments on the day! I used the last bits of fabric to make myself matching ears!

The final day I went to visit my good friends Captain Hook and Mr Smee. I was wearing my Donald Duck dress, once again I made this for the trip!

I had purchased this amazing Daisy AP holder from Tokyo and wanted a Donald fabric dress to wear with it! I decided the fabric was a bit too fussy for an all over dress so made a bodice and border skirt dress. I should have made it a bit shorter though!

I also made matching ears to this too 😊

Which is your fave outfit from my trip?

Lots of Love

Plus Size Disney – EMP Review

Hey Friends!

We have previously discussed how Plus Size Disney clothing is limited in the U.K. and how annoying this is, especially as customs charges are so high to ship from the US.

Well, over the past few months EMP have made a huge impact on the Disney online community as a company offering Disney clothes from American brands like Hot Topic and Torrid in the U.K and the best news is that those shops make clothes for fatties!

Having now placed a few orders with EMP I wanted to share my experience, so hopefully other Plus Size shoppers can get an idea what they need to look out for when buying from EMP.

The primary shops that EMP offer plus size Disney clothing from are Torrid and Hot Topic. Now, both of these shops do offer plus sizes, however, Hot Topic is Plus Size Junior/ Girls which is a slightly smaller measurement and definitely a different cut than the Torrid range which is standard US plus size.

Below are the two sizing charts of those stores …

Hot Topic sizing Chart

Torrid Size Chart

As you can see there aren’t huge differences in sizes, but the fact that Hot Topic only offer bust sizes in their size 6 shows that they stop making dresses and trousers at a size 5XL. Also, as I said above, I find the cut of Hot Topic items to be slightly different and I think this is because it is aimed at a more ‘teen’ market.

EMP However, offer sizing up to a 7XL – of this very same clothing! The EMP size chart differs once again!

EMP Size Chart

So, for comparison on EMP a size 7XL bust measures 53inches – 55.5inches … which is considerably less than a 6X in Torrid or Hot Topic 😱

Basically, the EMP size guide is rubbish. I have purchased multiple items from the site in sizes 6XL and 7XL which have the same measurements as a 6XL on Torrid! Sooo … working out the plus sizing is a little hit and miss.

The vast majority of items on EMP are still live on the other websites, I find that it is best to compare between the sites and try to work out what sizing you would be from that. If it’s a Torrid item, the 7XL on EMP is usually a 6XL on Torrid, so you can work back from there to figure out your size.

Another issue I have with the website and app is that it’s not easy to find the plus size Disney clothing. The ‘plus size’ search is RUBBISH! Don’t bother using it. I follow this route to search from the home page …

Categories > Women > Clothing > Show all Products > Filtering and Sorting > Size > select 6XL and 7XL ( for my personal size preferences) > Finish > Apply

It’s pretty long winded but it’s the only way I’ve found that works!

I have purchased quite a few items from the EMP app and have been happy with them all. I knew I would be as the quality from Torrid has always been something I have been happy with. I’ve mostly purchased casual/ chilled clothing so far though so don’t have any photos of me in any of it 😂

Instead, here is my current wish list from EMP of items available in my size

Alice floral blue Dress

Tropical Lilo & Stitch shirt

Snow White kimono

Wonderland Tee

I would order each of these in a size 7XL to allow for my chest, but do sometimes find I could have purchased a 6XL.

Do you have your eye on anything at EMP at the moment? Have you had similar issues with the sizing charts?

With Love
