Tiwi’s Closet: Plus size Vintage Lookbook

Hello every body. It’s been a couple of weeks but as I always I remain loyal to my love for blogging and fashion. You guys don’t know how many changes I have been going through in the last month.
So sometime in January or should I say sometime last Decemeber I had a fabulous brain wave. 
I thought it would be interesting to show you guys how I see vintage. I am usually the face behind the styling and buying but this time I decided to be the face in front of the camera.

 This is exactly how I would dress no jokes. To be honest when I am buying pieces for Tiwi’s Closet Vintage I always visualise how I would style the items. There has to be that connection for me to buy anything. You could say then that I have an emotional connection with all of my merchandise.  Whenever I pick out an item I visualise how I would wear it or how I would style it on another person. So you could also say the vision is what I buy when I pick each item and the vision is what I pass on to my customers.

As with anything fashion related there is usually a lack or limited amount of a plus size presence.  At the time of the shoot I wasn’t thinking “hey let me wave the plus size flag”. I was simply thinking let me share my style with fashion lovers out there. However I have noticed a lack of plus size wearable vintage out there so this one is for us plus size ladies.  All the clothing you see ( minus the shoes and ccessories) Will be available on our etsy shop. 

 We offer worldwide shipping .


On the day of the shoot it was raining and cold. The shoot was in Leeds and believe me my hair was not working with me. I had actually only just taken out my crochet braids the day before and didn’t really have much time to do anything with it. This is my hair after it has been deep conditioned and washed. I decided to go with my hair in it’s bare natural glory ( what choice did I have) and I  can honestly say I am happy with how it turned out. 

My photographer for the day was the lovely Kinga Kopcaz. She is an amazing and patient photographer. I worked with  her on the last Tiwi’s Closet Vintage Lookbook and I wasn’t disappointed this time either. 

And here is what we achieved together:

Being a modella even for a day is hard work don’t get it twisted. For all you aspiring models posing is no joke. I tried my best and I would love to do this again some day. Who know you just might see another one of these again. 

In the last two years I have become a doer instead of just a dreamer.  I am challenging you to do the same. Don’t keep all those great ideas in your head. Make them a reality.

I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did. 

Happy weekend 

Love , your modella
