Prepare to Party with House of Fraser! + Giveaway! | Fashion

When I think of fashion, specifically plus size fashion for myself (obviously) there are several shops that come to mind on where I'd plan on doing my shopping and House of Fraser wasn't one of them but perhaps it should be...

I'm all for brand awareness and love nothing more then finding a new shop/brand that stock my size so when the opportunity to do some shopping with House of Fraser came about there where 2 words shared, "Hell" and "yeah!". In today's I want to talk more about their Plus Collection, supplying threads from the likes of Evans, Taking Shape and Juna Rose but there were several other brands I'd never even heard of so off I was on a mission to investigate!




Grace UK

I was kindly sent the Grace UK Empire Line Lace Tunic Dress* // £40 // Size 26, they have a feature on their site " Which size will fit you best? Find your true fit! " But I was a little disappointed that this didn't include any plus sizes so I was on my own. I played it safe and ordered a size up and I did find the dress, although there was give to it, fit pretty snug and I know where I'm losing weight I'm a size 24 in fitted dresses in Newlook so basing it around that I'd say this runs about a size smaller. The dress itself comes in a size 14 - 32 which I thought was a pretty good range from a brand I'd never heard of. 



 I love a dress shape like this where it's lined round the waist as I find its always rather flattering for my shape or if you want to wear a belt etc. It's listed as a tunic dress which my thighs can agree is pretty accurate. For someone like me, although I don't mind getting my legs out every now and then it was pretty short and it did mean I'd have to pair it with tights which is fine but I'd of liked it if it was a tad longer. It's a piece I feel you could dress up or down with either some ankle boots and a leather jacket or cute flats and a cardigan with a cute across the shoulder bag, and equally glam it up in the evening with a big statement necklace and darker smokey eyes and a bright lip.





I was pretty impressed with finding so many new brands that stocked my size and larger upto a 32, I saw that House of Fraser were also going to be doing  Black Friday Deals! This isn't something we really get here in the UK and it's a shame as I mean c'mon, we all love a good bargain, so in the spirit of Black Friday, House of Fraser are giving you the chance to win a £30 gift voucher to use on their website on some of their great deals on Black Friday which goes live 28th November!

The competition will run till 26th November and the winner will be emailed and contacted with their vouchers by House Of Fraser in time to take advantage of Black Friday! WOO!
