Why I hate fashion

I hate fashion. No, seriously, I do. Maybe it’s a strange statement from someone who has a blog about clothing and accessories, but whenever I see a headline like “Be trendy this summer!” or “This season’s ‘must haves’” I roll eyes. Let me explain why. Fashion is monotonous. When something is in fashion you literally can’t find anything else, that would maybe suit your figure or personal style more. Indie shops can sometimes come to the rescue (and Marks & Spencer – if you like classics), but chance is they won’t have your size, the only style of dress you …

Caption contest – final results

Remember our contest we held in January? We think it’s time to wrap it up and after a debate we chose the following participants: 1st place: 2nd place: “Bras are like tea cups: they must be big enough to hold in the contents but narrow enough so they won’t spill.” 3rd place: “Honey, you look SO_SWEET in this – like you have two cupcakes instead of breasts.” To get your prizes please contact me at the ukapala@gmail.com with your snail mail address so I can ship the item to you :) This is important: please write from the email address that …

Contest. Make us laugh. There are prizes.

So, we decided to hold a contest, because contests are fun and we all need as much cheer as we can get. The Goal The idea is to come up with a humorous dialogue (or caption) for this bra fitting related situation (I’m sure at least some of you have been through this experience, as either of the participants): The purpose of this exercise is that the dialogue or caption must be funny. Putting it simply, make us laugh. The Jury We (Ula & Margot) will choose the submissions we like the most. If there’s more of them that we’re …

Sale dresses from Yours Clothing reviews

Yours Clothing has some stuff on sale now, so we decided to give these two dresses a review before they’re gone. Black and plum wrap dress – size 18 Ula I have been drooling over this particular dress since it’s become available a few months back. I was reluctant however to spend 39€ on a single dress, so I decided to wait until the sale and hoped that my size wouldn’t be gone by then. I was lucky. There is also a skirt made of the same fabric available. Fit – 4.5/5 The dress has enough space for my bust, …

Holiday Break

Greetings to all our readers. We decided to take a break from blogging for the holiday season: I am swamped with Christmas craft fairs and Margot has a nasty cold, so we don’t have time for photo shoots. We’ll be back in January with a review something cool. For now we’d like to wish our readers happy holidays and lots of rest.

Bust friendly top from Hong Kong

Today we’d like to introduce you to a shop that, as far as we know, only exists on eBay. Lady Wan is based in Hong Kong and has designed several styles that go up to size 32 and some of them are bust friendly, like this Kimono Wrap asymmetric top in size 16/18. Ula The Fit 4.5/5 It almost fits my chest; the under bust line, as you can see, is not exactly under the bust. Other than that it’s fine, and it creates an illusion that I actually have waist, which is nice. It indeed hides the tummy a bit …

Clarks “Flake Berry” shoes review

style: Clarks “Flake Berry” colour: wine patent size: 6.5, wide fit In my previous post about shoes, I stated that I wasn’t a big fan of wedged heels and patent leather. There can be however exceptions to these rules, and Clarks “Flake Berry” shoes include both. Aesthetics I don’t know why this wedge shape appeals to me while others don’t, I’m suspecting that it’s more horizontal and less diagonal in the back than usually, I don’t know. And I also like this particular style in patent leather, although there is a regular leather version too. I liked the wine coloured version the …

Shoes that walk the extra mile

I’m not just unusual when it comes to body shape, I also have it rough when it comes to buying shoes. Admittedly my feet are standard length, British size 6.5 (European 39), they are however unusually wide and have a high instep. This makes about 90% of shoes that are supposedly produced for my size utterly useless. Also, my right foot has been permanently swollen for the last few years, which makes it even more difficult for it to fit into most shoes. Furthermore, if I wear regular, cheap shoes, ones that come without a comfortably profiled and padded insole, …
