Double bubble - bobble

I think we can safely say its jumper weather, I'm more than a little bit chilly, so armed with my F+F Clothing voucher from the Plus North goodie bags I hit the website with the sole aim to pick up some winter woollies.

You'll be glad to hear I managed to stick to my aim... I know right?! Yey me! I picked up two of these fab bobble jumpers one in black and one in the gorgeous burgundy below...

Jumper - Clothing at Tesco// Jeggings - JUNAROSE// Shoes - Truffle via eBay


The jumper is so snuggly and lovely, I fell in love instantly and didn't want to take it off! The zip detailing to the sides is perfect and the length is great for wearing with leggings or jeans. I do, however, have one massive bug bear regarding this jumper. It only goes up to a size 20. Now, I just about managed to squeeze my size 22 ass in to it, but I do wish these brands would, not just F+F, but anyone who has a separate plus range, extend great pieces like this into the their plus range. 

I know, this is something we've been literally screaming for years, but sometimes I feel like these brands need reminding of the fact that all we want is the same as everyone else. It's not hard, or difficult, the plus size woman isn't a different breed, we just want the same choices afforded to our slimmer counterparts.  



Rant over I promise (for now)! On another note, I was completely loving my nail varnish, big ring, jumper combo today. Nice right? 

Briefly back to my rant though, I was wondering, if you could pick a straight size brand online or high street to do plus size who would it be?

    1. Oh and I don't know if you guys have a New York & Company there, but that is the straight size brand I would want to see doing a plus size line.
