It'll come as no surprise to most of those reading this when I say that even though we've come a long way in the last ten years, there are still a lot of things the plus size community misses out on. In the UK especially, one of those things is high quality clothing at a price that is affordable to a lot of people. Of course we have Marina Rinaldi, Anna Scholz and a few others but to most their pieces are prices out of our every day wear. Personally I do believe in spending a bit more ton clothing to get high quality fabrics and lasting pieces, but I too am not in the demographic that can afford to spend £300+ on a single item. Maybe one day, a gal can dream eh? But my reason for mentioning this is because I want to introduce (or remind of to those in the know) a wonderful brand called Kasbah Clothing.

Kasbah Clothing have been around for some years now, started by Heather Benhrima, a British designer who took the leap from designing for other brands to starting her own. Heather is based in beautiful Marrakech where she designs and oversees the making of the pieces that are then shipped here where the UK based team despatch them to you. I tried some of their linen pieces a few years ago and was impressed then, so when the team got in touch to see if I'd like to try some of their current collection of course I jumped at the chance. 

Aside from the stunning quality fabrics, exciting prints and the amazing make up quality of Kasbah pieces, I just adore the cut of every item which have clearly had so much though put into them. The dresses especially always hang beautifully. Personally I don't like the phrase 'flattering' because we should all wear what makes us feel great individually whether that be loose fitting or body hugging, but all of Kasbah's pieces are designed to look fabulous on a range of body shapes. Clever cuts and designs are the secret to creating great clothes for any size and Heather clearly has a great talent for this, creating clothing that is comfortable and stylish on larger bodies and that can be worn in different ways depending on your style. You can see above that I'm wearing the Rafaella Dress with a belt here to emphassise my waist, but in the image below where I'm in the Rolanda Dress I've foregone the belt to let the relaxed shape shine. Honestly, I'm kind of obsessed with the cut of Kasbah's dresses.

And it's not just dresses that Kasbah excel at! One of my most worn outfits currently teams the Sheena Skirt and the Oversized Leopard Cardigan with a warm roll neck sweater. Such an easy look but one that looks really put together, is super comfortable and just perfect for the cold weather we have right now. Again the quality of both of these pieces is just fabulous and will no doubt last me for years to come, as will the look of the pieces themselves - timeless and chic, so they'll never go out of style.

Like I said up above, us plus size gals are very hard put to find high quality, classic pieces that aren't out of our price range and Kasbah Clothing are definitely here to fill that void in our lives. Versatile and timeless, I know I'll be adding more and more of their pieces to my wardobe that I'll be wearing for years to come. Here are just a few of my top picks from their current collection:
