I’m sharing a little peek of my new and improved room today, along with a very silly kitty called Bass and the book I’m currently reading. I’d planned to go out to take photos in my new blouse and old pinny but the weather just wasn’t in a cooperative mood that day! So I just squished the life out of Bass while my live-in BFF snapped a few photos.

A little about the blouse I’m wearing which was sent to me by Calae, an up and coming plus size brand recently launched online. I’ve talked before about the dearth of plus sizes in India, so it’s heartening to see retailers here wanting to cater to plus size women. To quote directly from the brand manifesto - Calae is a style driven line of clothing for the self assured curvy woman, with international standards, fits that fit, and sensible price points. The launch collection mostly has cute and super wearable tops including this summery floral blouse that I picked. Fitwise, the line runs very true to standard international (UK) sizing. I went with the 18 as I usually wear a UK18 in tops, and the fit is just as comfortable as I prefer with enough room for movement - especially in the upper arm which is where I struggle with most Indian brands. The range currently runs from size 16-24, and it’s my sincere hope that Calae expands their sizing upwards in the future. Overall I give them a solid thumbs up of approval.

I’m on a roll! And, this time I’m back with some stuff for the regency lovers out there!

I came across Yandereplum’s gift to Vuokkosims and wondered why there weren’t more recolors (even thought that already came in 42 lol). So, I recolored ‘Little Marianne’ in Shasta’s Yeti palette and included a few pinny recolors (pinafores are not in all of the palette though, only the ones I thought looked best). The long sleeved dress, Little Elinor, will probably come later.

I also included an Alice-inspired dress, of course. That’s pictured above, as is both pinny and non-pinny dresses in Barn. Alice is pool, with pintucks, and the piping on the pinafore is Shortcake.

Subfoldered (Yeti, Yeti_Pinny, and AIW I think), uncompressorized. I used the original dress in milk for the base, and the pinafore is in snow, if anyone wants to make the rest of the pinnies.

Special thanks to jacquiesims for the inspiration to make something regency themed!


Perhaps you have noticed that I tend to post bird pictures in alphabetical order by species (budgies, cockatiel, conure).  Today I am breaking that pattern because Facebook brought to my attention that it was three years ago this weekend that we brought home this brightly-colored potato.  Spencer is a inexhaustible source of both delight and tiny bird-bite injuries and I am thankful every day to have him as a birdfriend. <3
