The Spotlight…

It is that time of the month! The time where I shine #YinkasSpotlight on a brand that I love and September is a good-un!

Let me set the scene; the leaves have started to fall off of their trees (and they look glorious) it has started getting darker A LOT earlier and the sun is starting to rise A LOT later and second you are out of the sun light it is freezing… Welcome Autumn (: And welcome Remi Ray! These oversized slogan jumpers are perfect for the transitional weather and just a little bit sassy too haha (:

Now Remi Ray is not a new brand but it is owned by one of my friends (yes her name is really Remi Ray and yes I have been jealous of this for a long while now)
Remi is a designer and a pioneer for plus size fashion.. Relax this is not me saying that I think I am plus size, put the pitch forks down!

Remi first burst on to the scene when she went against tradition and demanded that plus size women have a voice in high fashion and since then she has successfully launched Plus Sized Fashion Week and her own clothing label celebrating different body shapes and now she sells her designs online.

Yes Remis clothes are designed for the fuller woman but no; she doesn’t discriminate. And to be honest I am a little bit more than happy about this because these jumpers are awesome and with witty slogans such as:
‘ Thighs As Big As My Dreams’ and ‘Beyonce Wasn’t Built In A Day’ it’s nice to see a label injecting some body confidence into fashion and steering women right with some positive reinforcements.
I am not sure if I have taken to my blog to rant about body image before, and if I have it has been way too long since then. Sometimes its nice to take a step outside if this ‘you must be hard on yourself’ bubble and realise that you’re probably not doing too badly.

Of course I am wearing my Cat Face Hair extensions, don’t forget to use my code ‘Bokinni’ for 5% off of your next order which you can shop here
