OOTD : Candy Strike

So before I get on with the actual blog post, I wanted to tell you guys I've been nominated for a Navabi blogger award! You can vote for me (or all your other faves) here.

navabi Curvy Blog Award 2015


It is so sad when a truly innovate and wonderful independent plus size brand closes it's doors. When Candy Strike announced that they were doing one final run of their dresses before closing, I was gutted and had to order myself the dress I had been lusting after. I hope one day they will be back, but in the mean time they have a small etsy store with some t-shirt designs here.

Dress - Candy Strike
Pleather jacket - Matalan
Leggings - ASOS
Boots - Demonia
Flower crown - Crown & Glory
Necklace - The Serpent's Club
Rings - BloodyMary Metal

You might have noticed by now that I have a bit of a thing for moths, so this dress was an easy choice for me. I went for the pink version of this dress, and I am so thrilled with it. It is so soft and comfy. Patches my old lady cat is obsessed with it and won't stop sitting on me! I'm 5ft 11 and the length is great on me.


I wanted to give the dress a more 'rocky' look, so paired it with my pleather jacket and favourite boots. I so love contrasting really girly looks with rock and roll twists, it's so perfectly me!

I think someone was thinking of me when they made this.


I had to share a close up of this gorgeous necklace from The Serpent's Club. I was lucky enough to win a voucher on their instagram and I knew immediately what I was going to get. Opal/opalite is one of my favourite stones, and this skull carved from it is lush. All rings, save for the two with black stones on my ring fingers are BloodyMary Metal. I wear all of these every day and even sleep in them. Love!

Who are your favourite independent plus size brands? I am always looking to support more!

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

  1. A really unusual dress. Looks great paired with the jacket and boots.
    I don't know of any independent plus size companies. I used to be a fan of Evans but their ranges are pretty poor nowadays.
    I've recently discovered Taking Shape. Fabulous clothes - if a bit pricey.

    1. thank you! Yeah I'm the same with Evans. Especially since they closed down my local store and won't do collect from store from anywhere near me so I'd have to pay postage
