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 Wish List 

The availability of Plus Sized Disney clothing is pretty crappy in the UK. This means that I end up spending hours lusting over American sites which have extortionate shipping fees and then on top of that customs fees when the items finally arrive. That being said, it doesn’t stop me doing it and I thought I’d share some of my fave items online at the moment 

Starting with Torrid 


Jack Skellington Dress – Torrid 


Coco Kimono – Torrid


Mickey Raincoat – Torrid


Mickey Leggings – Torrid


Scar T Shirt – Torrid

We had some good news in the UK when EMP UK opened here. This is an app which brings clothing from American stores to the U.K. so we can get clothing from Torrid and Hot Topic without the shipping fees. The prices tend to be higher as a result but that’s to be expected. Unfortunately at the moment the plus size availability is limited so I have only included items that I enjoy which come in a size 26/28 and above – so would fit me! 


Lilo & Stitch Dress – EMP UK


Cinderella Dress – EMP UK


Aladdin Dress – EMP UK

Yours clothing usually have some Disney design Jammies available for the plus size market so that’s nice. Right now I’m loving this cute night dress


Minnie Nightie – Yours Clothing

Etsy has a plethora of amazing companies that make bespoke Disney designs, including t shirts, dresses, cosplays etc … 

I’ve included a few of my faves right now 


 Peter Pan Mermaid Tee – Etsy 


Figment Tee – Etsy


Cheshire Cat Skirt – Etsy

 

Hocus Pocus Tee – Etsy

This little lot would cost me a small fortune to buy … a girl can dream though can’t she?  😂

What are you eyeing up online at the moment?
