Clements Ribeiro Tunic

There have been so many posts about the Clements Ribeiro Swan range, it seems to have divided opinions in the plus size community but I guess that's not a bad thing. Just because we might share the common experience of being plus-size it does not mean we necessarily will love the same clothes. Even in the collection I see pieces that I'm definitely not brave enough to wear - like the matchstick trousers for instance. But look how the beautiful Amy wears them...doesn't she look fabulous?
Anyway, I had my eye on the heart print Diana top as soon as I'd seen it. So the morning Swan launched online I got myself up at 7.15am to make sure I could be in on the occasion.

Tunic - Swan for Evans
Jeans - Chloe for Simply Be
Boots - Simply Be
Hairband (old) - New Look



I wore the tunic on Easter Sunday with the Chloe Jeans I just got. I have to admit the jeans are a little baggy in the legs, but its because I carry most of my weight around my middle and definitely couldn't have got away with sizing down. I think they'll look better with flats rather than boots tucked in. The tunic however is just adorable. I love it, it's a good length and the print is so cute. I'd love to purchase more from the Swan Range like the Betty or Peggy dresses or even the cardigan but right now funds do not permit. I'd love to know your take on the range and if you made any purchases.
For those of you wondering, the first 500 to buy something from the range online got a scratchcard. You could either win £50, £30 or free delivery. Yep, I got free delivery. A nice thought but I'd have much preferred a badge or a pin, something all 500 of us could have got equal enjoyment from.
One of my favourite blogs on the range has to be from Em, she actually went instore and tried on the pieces so for an honest and enjoyable read please check out her blog. x

  1. Thank you for the shout out honey. I really like this range and also have really liked the different opinions from so many women on the clothes. It isn't quite a Ditto range (!!) But I like the prints and cuts. I'm excited to see where they go from here.

    You look fab in this tunic and like yourself, I wore this collection over Easter too.

    I hope you've had a beautiful weekend.

    Em. Xx.
