Feeling Bold In Matalan

Recently I went into Matalan with my Mom for a little browse, not expecting to find much as they don't usually carry my size in store but was pleasantly surprised to find a small section of plus size, this is a great improvement on the last time I went in and hopefully there will be more added over time. Its good to see these little sections appear, and I hope it means that the section will one day be larger.

I found this lovely dress and at £18 I was pretty impressed. The quality is nice, I really like the pattern and I'm definitely going to look out for more pieces in future after this one. I'm feeling bold in Matalan.

At 5'9 the dress does come up a little short on me, but with a pair of thick tights I think it still works and on colder days I'll pair it with leggings and boots.
 I wore it with Shepherds Delight Snag Tights and an old pair of Primark boots that have come back into fashion and felt really confident and its days like this I know how far I've come.

This shirt dress will be great coming into Winter with a nice coat and colourful accessories, much like I've styled it here - go bold or go home I say.

I'm happy that Matalan are bringing out some great plus size pieces, I just hope to see more like this and less dark and dull colours. Being plus size doesn't mean we want dark colours, we are not hiding away - fashion is for everyone regardless of size.

Felt quite cheeky here
