How we met Tallulah;
Walking out of the pub on a Saturday evening I heard a 'DANIELLE!' shout from across the road. She mentioned she followed Hissy Fit and I recognised the face instantly from a recently tagged photo on our Instagram of her Hissy Fit graduation fit! I said she needed to come in and model asap and here we are
How it went down;
Super gorgeous day, the whole team fell in love with Tallulah just like I knew they would. We were a little dream team for the day. We pulled some fits ready for Tallulah but also asked her what pieces she would like to try on. Luckily, she loved everything she tried on and look totally gorgeous.
The first outfit we got Tallulah in was the Gingham Mid Rise Maxi Skirt & matching Gingham Sleeved Cropped Top as this was our newest line at the time and I couldn't wait to see it on someone! Our new Mid Rise Skirts have seemed to scare off a lot of customers that fear the waistband, but this just shows perfectly that you can be any shape/size to wear them as they are adjustable to high or low rise!
We spoke about the struggles of plus size clothing, from a manufacturing side and from a consumer side. We agreed that more plus size models need to be shown on websites and social media. Mainly, we spoke about tattoos, work, going out, nails and food though.
Tallulahs sunflower tattoos just seemed to match this Black Lemon Picnic Dress perfectly! She absolutely loved this dress, but I think she preferred the Blue version. We paired it with some of a dead stock knitwear - the Cream Shrug. This item is listed as 'no size' as this is the only size we received in our job lot and there are no sizing tags, however as you can see it totally works!
Our shoots are super laid back, we take them in the bit of spare room/blank wall we have in our unit with natural light & an iphone. We don't edit our photos (no airbrushing or photoshopping here) and chuck them straight on the site & socials. We like to keep it real.
We also made sure to get lots of video content so we can show you all these pieces in actions - how they fit, how they move etc. This is her giving us a little twirl in the Brown Swirl Mesh Sleeved Top & matching Brown Swirl Mesh Midi Skirt.
