Janie B modeling at Alternative Fashion Fest ( Nicky rockets)

I recently modeled for the Alternative Fashion Fest as part of a show they put on at a festival over in NE Wales. I’ve modeled for Alt Fest a few times and love it as they encourage you to be yourself, they stand up for diversity and actually let the models express emotion which is amazing for me.

This time I was modeling the fabulous Nicky Rocket Tees , check the red rather lush. I paired the tee with my faithful Evans Boots, Simply be Skort and Fishnet tights from The Big Tights company.

BTW the Alternative Fashion Fest have their next show at Circo in Liverpool this Wednesday 29th June 2016 from 7pm and its free   – see you there.  Heres the link to the event https://www.facebook.com/events/1721222301478718/  xx

Tour Date 2 – 30th April 2016 at the North East Wales Diversity Festival Gig and Ask Fashion

Tour date 2 – 30th April 2016 at the North East Wales Diversity Festival Gig.
Here I am on the outdoor stage with my band Skyeladder, such a fun day and the reaction to our new songs “Mercy” and “Take Me” was amazing.  Thankyou everybody for coming to support us.  As usual with my other posts I am blogging about the outfit I wore ( which by the way in case you are all wondering –  I have bought all of them ) .
So for this gig I wore my ASK fashion flag dress which I absolutely love its made from a stretchy woolen like material which kept me cool all day and is hand made by the lovely Amanda.  Ask fashion is a designer label in the states I met the designer Amanda a few years ago when I was in New York for the Fuller Figure fashion Week shows and raved about her collection.

In order to compliment the dress I paired the look with fishnet tights from The big tights company. Evans cowboy leather boots and a black furry gilet from Evans which I bought years and years ago paired with fishnet tights from The big tights company.

House of Fraser – Label Lab – Curvy collection

I’ve never really looked at House of Fraser before as having clothing to fit my curvy demure body. To be honest I probably wouldnt have looked if it hadn’t have been for a fellow blogger posting.   So trumpet sounds der der der der introducing Label Lab at House of Fraser.

Its a pretty trendy range of Gents/Womens clothing with the womens range including a capsule collection of plus sized clothing .

As you all know I’m a size 20 mostly although in some brands I now fit an 18 and I’m 5:8 and 48 years old  ( blimey I’m old my birthday was Christmas Eve :0) .  I do find it hard to find items of clothing that totally fit my style and its really hard to  find items that I could wear on stage singing with my band Skyeladder.

However I’ve just put an order in for these items so will do another blog when they arrive showing the fit and how I pair them with items in my wardrobe.

Enjoy xxxxxxxxxxx

The bloody marvelous designer list

So I get bored easily and when I get bored I get naughty must be my creative side what with the music, writing , photography etc.   Anyway I’ve decided to pull together  a list of  designers worthy of being on “The Bloody Marvelous Designer List”   If you make the list I will promote the crap out of your collection just because I want to. 

Note this list is not influenced by PRs passing me freebies  ( believe you me that wont work and I probably wont respect you for it anyway as I;m not one of those bloggers who pleads for items to review) . 

I’ll only add designers to the list that I respect and they produce awe inspiring and innovative collections over and over again. 

So roll call please the first designer on my list is…………………..

 

Anna Scholz – http://www.annascholz.com/

Anna has been in curvy fashion for quite a number of years, has her main office in London and used to model herself so she really does get what curvy women want. Anna has quite an imagination and its this imagination and great creativity that you see reflected in her designs and the prints she creates. I have a number of things  from Annas main stream collection, the quality is great, beautifully cut and the fit for me is perfection.

Info from the website

Age of Reason is a UK luxury print label with an emphasis on quality, sustainability and ethics. Born as a scarf studio it has evolved to add womenswear and homeware.

DESIGNER

Our designer Ali Taylor Mapletoft, a former London filmmaker, uses confident strokes of pen and ink to create striking hand-rendered prints in her Brighton studio. Provenance is key to Ali’s production, the majority of which is undertaken by a small UK team.  Taking inspiration from literature, historical costume, pop-culture and her African childhood in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, Ali applies a quintessentially British style to her contemporary collections. Her works often include, historical drawing, hidden messages, and a dash of punk attitude.

 “A print piece should never be boring, it should become part of your personal -style story. I want to see people living effortlessly with my designs. ”

ASK Fashion

ASK Fashion is a Boston based plus size brand and company. CEO founder and creative director Amanda Koker wants you to find your inner rockstar.

Ask Fashion AW15

I’ve know about ASK fashion now for around two years when I met the lovely Amanda at a plus sized fashion event in New York City.   Her creativity and style really caught my eye check out the latest AW15 collection its full of strong signature stunning pieces. In particular I love the flag influenced dress’s and jacket’s.

NO tea dress’s here

With Christmas and my birthday coming up Christmas Eve, my thoughts have turned to what to wear, I;m 48 this year and want to look a sexy beast. I;m really not really feeling the current trend around 40s tea dress stylie,  so I thought I would take a look at Anna Scholz latest products and see what she had to offer.

Well thank god for the Scholz , check some of my favorite looks,  and tell me which ones you prefer. Its a veritable trend fest (sexy, trendy, chic)  love love love. x

Yep I know the coats not a dress but come on I had to feature it , its so so pretty :0) .

Scarlet & Jo new retro stuff

So I’ve not been feeling overly well this week and have bit picked up a rather nasty bug. So it was nice to get a name mention from an interview ( link here) I’d completed with Giffi Fields early in the year in the recent Scarlet & Jo blog where they are featuring pictures of bloggers  in the new AW15 collections.

Now one thing I just need to know  – where was my invite Giffi my love, ha ha? https://scarlettandjo.wordpress.com/2015/09/08/paradise-lost-and-regained/

If you follow me on pinterest  https://www.pinterest.com/janiesingermode/ you’ll know I love gardening veggies and flowers. In fact I’ve just put a new flower bed in place and put up lots of hanging baskets I’m really turning into a gardening health freak :0) . I do have some summer items that have flowers on but  I’m really not over-ally girly flowery type person.

I’m certainly not interested in a AW15 collection that has tons of flower prints and girly elegant long ball gowns and maxis.  I’m more a rock type chick with a bit of paisley 70s mixed in :0) .  So I was very pleased to see this tunic, this is definitely one of my favorite looks from Scarlet & Jo modeled via a rather cutsie blogger Mrs Bebe

The garment is described as a keyhole tunic, in monochrome ( black & white)  , it features kimono style elbow length sleeves with a slight flare from the waist. The tunic quite happily sits on the mid thigh or if you are vertically challenged (its a  joke don’t kill me) could sit on or around the knee area.

https://scarlettandjo.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/dsc_0411.jpg

I’m not aware of the fabric please Giffi let it be silk or a cotton mix ( pretty please)  – hate fabrics made from polyester, they can be so hot.  The tunic anyway to me, seems to  emit tones of retroism, I’d pair it with a gorgeous pair of suede boots, I’d probably add wine colored boots  ( theres some nice ones in Evans currently)  maybe a floppy hat to mix in the 70s theme.   Well I  love it just needs my body in it,  nice tunic Giffi my old chum, keep them coming x.

I also like the pattern and top half on this dress, its a maxi and has the paisley print I love, as its a maxi its not for me but if it was above knee length or just a peplum top I’d be all over it  as I really dig the neckline and sleeves.  I suppose I could cut the bottom off and work my personal magic on it for my style requirements. But then would I offend lovely Giffi and his team mmm probably !.  Instead I’ll ask pretty please for a top or shorter dress in a similar style or a tunic that I can wear with a leather jacket would be super dupa :0) .  The gorgeous girlie in the pic is of course the stunning Mayah  ( sorry darling dont know what your blog name is) .  So out of the AW15 collection I like 1.5 items not bad for me really as I can be super critical.

The stunning Mayah sure knows how to work a maxi.

Thanks for reading ( unless your not then your loss :0) kisses xxxxxxx)
