Last night I was invited to the opening soirée for Evans’ new flagship store on Oxford Street! It’s opposite the old one, near Marble Arch, but boy is it different. Brightly lit and high-ceilinged, it’s a real joy to shop in. The staff are helpful and passionate and friendly, and it’s got loads of great stuff for this season.

Trying to branch out from wearing M&S black tights for the rest of my life, so gave this blue-black pair from TightsPlease a go. Very happy to report that they are chub-appropriate and pleasantly opaque!
I believe the stag print/collar tip combo is, to use a technical term, bitchin’.
And worn with my beloved Luella bag (on which I need the zip fixed if anyone can recommend someone), it made up my first-day-of-school outfit as I had some introductory classes for my MA yesterday! Photo stolen from the wonderful Diana, taking pics for Plus Size Tall.
And I had the pleasure of meeting Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro, aka Clements Ribeiro who are the designers behind the massively successful Swan collaboration with Evans, which I completely believe to be the best thing to happen in plus-size fashion in a really long time. I’m so grateful for what they’ve done with Evans, and I can’t speak highly enough of the Swan items I’ve tried or bought so far! Basically I want everything.
Aaaand I got my nails painted in a pretty OPI shade, Dim Sum Plum!
Thanks again to Evans for being so warm and welcoming! Really looking forward to shopping there!
