So the partywear season is upon us again and it doesn’t feel that long ago since last Christmas…

Although i’m not a party animal, I have a bit of a tradition that every Christmas day I dress up in a new dress or outfit that I have bought for that purpose. In fact most of my “Christmas Day” dresses only get worn on special occasions no matter what shop they came from and I always insist on a new outfit/dress every year. Gone are the days as a child where I would spend as long as I possibly could in my pyjamas! Last year I wore an absolutely gorgeous purple frock dress with embellished cuffs which was from Primark and a complete bargain. This year I haven’t chosen my dress and although I came close to ordering one from ASOS, I found out days later they had sold out so I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

Anyway, I thought I would trawl the shops and bring you the hottest plus size partywear for 2012. Styles that will suit our curvier figures and shops that actually cater for us… So take a look at my top 3 picks for plus size partywear and if you have any comments I’d love to hear from you! I don’t know about you, but I think you need something pretty special for this time of year.

Everywhere I look, Metallics are really popular for one of the hottest Winter trends, 2012… but as I gaze upon every shiny pencil skirt or glitzy dress I do wonder if this trend will suit curvier girls. I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those styles that you have to try on to see…

Although Primark is not sterotypically known for plus size clothing, I know they go up to a size 18 or 20 at times… and they seem to be bang on trend this winter with plenty of Metallics to choose from. For those of you who are daring, full mini dresses clad in metallic shiny fabric are on sale along with embellished blouses for those of us who aren’t so sure (so there’s no need to feel left out!) Check out some of the winter 2012 metallics trends from Primark below:

Me and mum decided to pop out and do a bit of Christmas shopping this evening as the shops in our local mall have started staying open until 10pm yay! This is perfect as I can get all of my work done during the day and head out early evening.

We got kind of sidetracked with the clothes shops, as I wanted to take a look at the new Kardashian collection in Dorothy Perkins. I’d seen it advertised online and it has only just launched here exclusively so into Dorothy Perkins we went… Admittedly, I don’t watch any of the TV programs associated with the Kardashian sisters, but I know what they look like. Kim Kardashian is said to be a UK Size 8 (I do question this myself, as she has a very curvy bum), and Khloe Kardashian is meant to be a size 10/12… and both girls promote healthier curvier bodies so imagine my shock when on all of the racks in Dorothy Perkins there was hardly anything in a size 14 or 16 and nothing above a 16. I thought it was maybe just where the line had been so popular so I vowed to myself that I would check on their website when I got home as I quite liked one or two of the new 2012 Kardashian line, one dress and a pencil skirt.

Firstly, I apologise hugely for not updating around here. I started this fatshion / fashion blog with good intentions and then everything went a little bit haywire with one of our cats finally having to be put down and work being extremely hectic. I have missed writing on here so much though and I am now back and am going to make it my mission to make this one of the best plus size fashion blogs out there! Lots has happened since I last posted. I finally have a wedding dress! But no venue yet. My wedding dress is absolutely stunning and although I can’t give too much away in case the other half stumbles across my blog, it is a gorgeous designer wedding dress which my lovely mummy treated me to. It sucks that it is sat in storage at the bridal shop until we actually have a date!
