    Plus Band Already Making News

    Plus Size BandAbout a month ago, I spoke about how a sizzling new band made up of just plus size women, was set up by curvy UK magazine Just as Beautiful. This band was set up, after the magazine organized a unique and successful contest, where they searched through loads of curves and talent, to make up a one of a kind curvy band, which they dubbed Plus.

    Well it looks like the girls at Plus are already making a big impact! An ABC News article published a few days ago recounts how the band was created.

    The article also features some further insight, and comments from the girls themselves. One group member, Hannah Lee, told ABC News, "As I am big, I just thought I am never going to properly get into the music industry."

    So here’s a round up of all the girls who make up the curviest band in the music industry:

    • Hannah Lee
    • Rachel Faulkner
    • Shirley Slaymaker
    • Kate Newnes
    • Stacey-Lee Cuddy

    New Additions at Fashion Overdose

    Jessica Top from Fashion OverdoseNew items have been added to the edgy plus size clothing line available at Fashion Overdose. This store focuses on fem, street styled fashions which at first glance might not appeal to everyone. However I do encourage you to dig deep through the collection at Fashion Overdose as there are some gems to be found.

    From their new collection, my favorite piece is the Jessica top. This is a tunic styled top with a difference. It is short-sleeves and included velvet and lave trimmings at both the sleeve and neckline. Tiny details which make this top unique. In comes with a faux satin belt at the empire waist, to further the curvy figure and flatter it. This is a very versatile top which can be worn in different occasions, during both the day and night.
