LFW with Simply Be #SBxLFW


You know when you just dream about something your whole life and then when it happens it’s actually better than you could ever have imagined? Yeah I didn’t think it was possible either but this weekend I got to attend London Fashion Week on behalf of Simply Be! My babe Sam from FattyBoomTatty needed a hand to run the world via social media, so I stepped up and joined the gang. This is going to be an image heavy post, so hold on to your hats!

The beautiful Sam and I!

We wore Simply Be during the day, making sure we gave our own twists on our classic looks. Sam went for all out colour and I went for subtle pops of colour and pattern. We wanted to show the world that plus size babes can be fashionable and stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons!

Lottie: Faux Leather Jacket £65, Jumper £12, Skirt £30, Leggings £29 – Simply Be

We took over Simply Be‘s Twitter, Instagram and Periscope for the day and we got immersed in fashion heaven. We took pictures of street style, of a show we went to and of the general atmosphere of LFW. We tried to capture a real mix of people for our blogs, with a general focus on items that are wearable for plus size babes as well as some amazing male fashion too. Here’s a few of my favourite pics of the day:

The see-through panel on this guy’s jeans though… LOVE IT. 

We both fell in love with this couple a little bit. Can’t beat a bit of faux fur…  

This chap’s all black errythang look gave me so much life. He had the best tattoos too!

These kids were all joined together like some kind of fashion human centipede – and I was all for it!


Other than culottes being the fashion of choice, all out comfort was too. Ripped denim, sports wear and femme touches pulled it all together.

We were lucky enough to go to Freemasons Hall for a show (thanks Danielle Vanier!) and we saw some amazing emerging fashion designers showing their collections.



So that was our day! I had the best time roaming the streets for Simply Be. Why not take a look at their site and see if you can recreate your fave LFW look?!

  1. Oh I loved following yours and Sam’s day at LFW on the Simply Be takeover, I totally enjoyed the street style you caught. So many culottes at LFW this year!! Oh, and I really chuckled at ‘fashion human centipede’!

    The up and coming designers show at Freemasons Hall looks like it was amazing, I find that sort of thing so interesting. You both look gorgeous too. Thanks for going and flying the plus size flag for us. xx
