I know this isn’t a ground breaking blog but since losing and still losing weight, and dropping 4 to 5 dress sizes, I’ve been discovering brands I can now fit into. And it’s weird.
There are so many shops I’ve never been into or even heard of. But one I’ve always known about and wanted to try is called Karen Millen.
Fun fact: I work right next to a shop the O2 Arena in North Greenwich and the O2 recently opened an outlet mall called The Icon. The Icon hasn’t fully opened yet, but you can find shops like Calvin Klein, Ted Baker, Hotel Chocolat, Aspinal of London etc…
And I found myself in a Karen Millen, staring at a beautiful camel coloured dress marked down from £140 to £70. And I went away then came back to it and was like ‘I’m getting it!’ So I did.

Feeling hella sexy in this #ootd. Inspired by the one and only @badgalriri, can you tell? 😂 📸: @jade___mercedes . . . . . . . . . #ootdfashion #fashion #plusfashion #psfashion #plussizefashion #curvefashion #fashionblogger #psfashionblogger #plussizefashionblogger #curvyblogger #lilsnaxx #effyourbeautystandards #bodyconfidence #bodypositive #karenmillen #asoscurve #asos #pumaxfenty
It is a short knitted dress with long sleeves and high neck. And it is so sexy and is giving me Rihanna vibes big time. So I styled it like her and honestly took some of the sexiest pictures of me. (Thanks Jade!)
I think Karen Millen designs and quality of their clothing are classically beautiful. Karen Millen isn’t the place to go if you want loud clothing that is more trendy, if you do then they might not be the brand for you. They generally do classic cuts in more neutral colours.
Ultimately, it is a good brand, a little bit on the pricer side, but they do sales often in which case I would say you’re getting what you’re paying for. But it’s sad that they don’t offer inclusive sizing, only offering clothes from a size 6-16, which is a shame but hopefully it will change.
