You probably heard my screams of delight when i found out the news that V by Very were launching their own curve section. It was on par with that ” I have elbows ” scene from F•R•I•E•N•D•S. If you don’t get that reference, i am not your friend. But yes so there i am absolutely loving life at the Littlewoods Ireland Spring Summer launch for the main range when i spotted the sign. I dared not blink in case my eyes were deceiving me. Nope there it was in big old plain english V by Very Curve. I could ramble on for a few paragraphs here with several cliches of Hallelujahs and lights shinning down from the heavens but i think you get the gist.
One of the main reasons that i Love LWI and the brands they stock is because of how size inclusive they are. V By Very stocks up to a size 24 in the majority of it’s main range pieces and also has it’s own petite section. Literally covering everyone, i mean how cool is that. Even with their celebrity collection such as the Myleene Klass range which is super inclusive. There is such emphasis placed on well fitting clothing being made for the women of today. I just love that.
If i wasn’t already fit to burst, can you imagine how honoured i was to be asked to collaborate with Littlewoods Ireland to launch the collection. Proud is not the word! This is the stuff that pumps through my veins and i am so passionate about it being the same for everyone else. The team asked me to style up some looks from the plus sized section and i jumped at the chance. I chose pieces that reflected the key trends of the season and that would suit my shape. I was able to mix and match my shoes and accessories just like i would with pieces within my own wardrobe. This would be a great idea for holidays or a weekend wedding etc. The dresses had sleeves which i love and the blazer wasn’t restrictive like they can be. The looks i chose where all well fitting , comfortable and fashion forward.
If you have been around here for awhile you will know why this means so much to me. Size wise, I have never been a small girl. Petite in height maybe but nowhere else. I don’t and certainly won’t let that stop me from doing the thing i love. There has been a body positive movement happening of late and this really puts a smile on my face. The fashion industry has woken up to this news and i could not be more excited. In the 2017 Fall shows, no less than 30 “plus” models walked some the Worlds biggest designers and brands. It is not about the number sewn into the the threads you wear, but how those threads make you feel. Gone are the days of black sacks and lack of choice for ladies of size.
The curve range is a real mix of pieces to build a wardrobe of quality staples. From bold summer florals to confident stripes. Chic pleats and colour-blocking for a super classic look. These key trends are accompanied by wardrobe heroes such as longline blazers and denim jackets. Pieces that will see you through several seasons. Bring some fun and colour into your summer wardrobe in a really chic way. All this in flattering cuts made with ladies of size in mind.
The collection has some extremely affordable staple pieces that any wardrobe would welcome. A great example being this pleated colour block midi skirt. A beautiful chic navy that is so classic. A flattering piece that i think is more than worth it’s price tag. Paired with a lace top and heels for a night of spinning around the dance floor. Or go the casual but fun route by tucking in a white tee and adding some plimsolls for those Summer days.

This week marks the soft launch of the curve collection with the range formally launching in the coming weeks when more and more pieces will appear online. Dressing your curves with absolute confidence and style. As i always say fashion is for everyone and there really is something for everyone in the V by Very ranges. I would like to sign off by thanking the guys at Littlewoods Ireland for asking me to be a part of this. I truly am so honoured to be a part of something so positive and inspiring.
