Topshop part II – Vogue Curvy edition!

After a few months of keeping schtum I can finally come clean to you all: I’ve been lucky enough to join the ranks of Gabi, Sakina and Nicolette by vlogging for Vogue Curvy! Oh my god it feels so good to say it loud and proud, haha! You can click the image to go to the page:

Look, that's me! On a Vogue website! Ridiculous!

To view the video make sure you select “Italian” in the drop down box on the top left of the page to view the video, as there’s an issue with the English language one. That’s being fixed as we speak though.

Oh, and I really really apologise for my hair – it was literally the hottest day of the year and my normally quite well behaved hair couldn’t cope at ALL. I do actually own a brush, I swear!

The point of these videos is to show that plus size women don’t have to be scared of going into straight sized stores, and that you are able to find stuff that suits anywhere. As you guys know I am only just starting out on my journey, so I’m pretty much learning as I go along. If you have any questions about the film do ask!

Love you all! xx

  13. LaGrandeDame Says:

    Congratulations, you look fabulous and I love that all different plus size women are making a name for themselves in Vogue Curvy…when is US Vogue going to really get the message??

  14. thepocketrocket Says:

    Lou: THANK YOU! I know, I can hardly believe it myself!

    Angela: Thank you so much, especially for the vote of confidence on the hair :D

    Ulrika: Thank you dear!

    Val: Yeah, it is surprising. There was a great deal of stuff that didn’t fit – including a pair of tassled hotpants, HAHA – but there are gems to be found in there, definitely.

    Vanessa: Aww, thank you! You are so beautiful too! I watched your make up videos as well, you’re great on video camera as well as normal ones :D

    Pearls, Lace & Ruffles: Thank you so much! Your blog is fab, I must add it to my feed!

    Boombands: Thanks love, am trying to get a new store on board, will keep you all informed!

    Katrin: Awww, thank you dear. It means a lot! And you’re in London how we speak! Hope you’re LOVING it :D

    lionstigersandsaraohmy: Thank you SO much. What a lovely thing to say! The Wizard of Oz obssessee also adores your name :)

    Devon: Thanks so much lovely, I am really proud and flattered to have done it :)

    LaGrandeDame: Thank you, I love your store! It’s sad but I don’t think US Vogue will acknowledge larger fashion, certainly not while Wintour is in charge. But to be honest Italian Vogue is pretty much THE Vogue in terms of editorials and high fashion, so I’m actually more impressed that they have taken steps to acknowledge black fashion and larger fashion. Go them! :D
