Live Unlimited: Blogger Event

On Thursday I had the pleasure of heading down to London for a little shindig at Live Unlimited HQ, based in Camden a gang of blogging babes were welcomed into a small but perfectly formed conference/showroom area within the offices, filled with rails of beautiful Live Unlimited clothing, nibbles and drinks!




From the off we were told the purpose of the day was to view the collection and talk about what we liked what we didn't like. The team were eager to hear our views, talk about where we shop, what we look for when purchasing clothes and our honest opinions on the brand. 



What always stands out for me with Live Unlimited is the quality of fabric, attention to detail and wearability. Its classic styling with a fashion edge means it can appeal to wide audience. I always find their sizing spot on too which when you're having to order online (as I don't live near and Evans that stocks LU) is a big relief! Theres no denying LU has quite a grown up feel about it, for me its the Wallis of the plus size market, amazing prints, easy to wear shapes, effortless chic. 





Much chatter ensued and we had such a great time talking at length with team about the brand, its direction, the technology involved and design process. With the first part of the AW range released today on the Evans website it really is worth checking out Live Unlimited if you haven't before, if cool, chic and edgy is your kind of thing, I think you're going to love it!

and finally, what does one wear to such a shindig? well I too tried to go for chic and effortless, I don't know gang, did I pull it off?


 I wore: Aubergine Top - Next// Necklace - Topshop// Heart Print Trousers - ASOS Curve// Satchel - ASOS (similar)// Pointed Court Shoes - Clarks (similar)

  2. Beckyyy, you beautiful, lovely, individual! *batters eyelashes* Ok Ok..I *am* after a sneaky favour. For a long time now, myself & a number of others on the Evans Facebook (no, I'm not one of those who bash them! Quite the opposite!) have really been asking for the past 2 years for an option in longer length dresses. I'm getting to the stage with my confidence now where I would love to purchase a dress or two - whether everyday or otherwise, & build up to wearing it out & about while holding my head high. The problem is, I'm 5'9", & sadly the lengths sit far too high above the knee (especially if you have a rather big booty like myself - it doesn't help the tall cause!) & isn't remotely comfortable to wear. I can never fault Evans on their trousers / jeans / jeggings / leggings lengths in longer lengths, but I (& i know others too) feel so sad we miss out on all the beautiful dresses & are often only lumbered with maxis - I don't want to wear maxis in winter!
    I know it's a big ask, but could you be our little voice if another opportunity arises like this again? ANYWHERE infact! As it isn't just Evans.. (Although I've been bitterly sad about the S&Jo powerfit dresses being too short -sob-)
    Since I'm not a blogger, & you're not only the very first blog I started reading when you began, but the first one I had the confidence to talk to on IG & the first I felt closest to in getting to know..I really wanted to ask, as us tallies are getting desperate - myself especially!
    You look absolutely beautiful in your outfit - you always make me want to dip my foot in the spotty trouser pool!
    Lots of ❤ Laura (acrasias on IG!) xx
