What I wore to #BlogOnMSI

On Sunday I went to my first Blog On Conference in Manchester and a week before I was approached to review an outfit for clothing brand Celuu.

I had not heard of Celuu before, although I have since found out they can be found in John Lewis, but they have just launched a new website and their clothing can now be bought online.

I have to admit that I dislike clothes shopping as I really struggle to find clothes that fit my shape. I am a size 12 around my bust and hips, but when you measure my waist I jump to an 18 as I carry my weight around my middle. I was assured that Celuu is for women who appreciate beautifully designed, easy-to-wear pieces that are cut to fit and flatter.

Born from 50 years’ experience of British design, Celuu is a womenswear brand with a fresh approach to style. Their philosophy is simple – to design elegant and contemporary pieces that fit consistently, and equally well, from sizes 12-22.

They take inspiration from trends, translating them into relaxed shapes that are comfortable to wear and luxurious to the touch and each garment is thoughtfully curated from the initial design to the very last stitch.

I chose the Kiera Chiffon Trim top and teamed it up with the Emily Slim-Fit Pull On Cotton Trousers. Firstly, it was packaged beautifully, arriving in a box and all wrapped in tissue paper. Secondly, the items were gorgeous, well made and fit perfectly. The trousers had a little give in the waist which mean’t that I had no issues with them being too tight across my stomach. I teamed these with some Angel shoes and my Yale Bag from Hotter Shoes.

Blog On Conference

I started the day at Blog On with a mini photo shoot with five other ladies chosen to wear clothing from Celuu. We all agreed that the clothes were stylish and comfortable and had lots of fun modelling our looks.


Nadine aka JuggleMum really put our outfits to the test with a ball fight in the huge Swizzels ball pool, which was so much fun and showed just how practical the clothes are too. I may have tried to steal her Ruby Boucle Biker Jacket, but she wasn’t letting it go that easily!

Check out what Emmy’s Mummy, Lucy Loves and Zena’s Suitcase thought of their outfits by clicking on their links and do head over to Celuu and take full advantage of their mid-season sale!

  1. Oh you look truly fabulous and despite your worries about your shape the clothes really do flatter. You’re a great advert for them. What a lovely idea this whole thing is. Blog On is evolving all the time. Surprised you said it is your first as I thought you went to Winchester? I paid to go to Cymru but then hubby couldn’t take me in the end (long story) but they always sound amazing. But back to the post, these clothes look GREAT. What a good way of them getting their name out there as I had not heard of them either xxx

  2. I love stripes, I think it’s a nautical thing I have! You looked very smart – and I love that there are clothes that actually cater for real women – not what women are supposed to be shaped like!

  3. I was supposed to be coming right up until the week before when I had to pull out. I was gutted, I’ve had a great time the past two years.

    Your outfit looks lovely on you.

  4. Im smaller on top than bottom, regardless of what i weigh so its always difficult to buy clothes, ive never heard of this brand but will have to check it out, you all look fab!

  5. Lovely outfit, I have never heard of this company before, I am bigger on top than I am bottoms and find it difficult to buy clothes. I will have to pop over and have a look x

  6. All the outfits loom lovely and definitely flattering. I’m curvaceous since having my babe’s and carry most around my thighs, find outfits to fit my odd shape is really challenging so thanks for sharing about this brand! Hope you had a lovely day there

  7. All you ladies look lovely and that top is very flattering. Sounds like a great fun day all round make even better knowing you look your best and are comfortable too.

  8. I’ve not come across Celuu before either, but I really like that top. I thought I was a nightmare sizewise because I’m pear shaped – 12-14 on top at the moment and 14-16 on the bottom half, but your mix must be hard too.

  9. Awww looks like you had a fantastic time at blog on, I’m hoping to go next year well fingers crossed lol. I love the celuu top you wore, I’m a huge fan of strips xx

  10. How did I miss you and Nadine in the ball pit!!!! Can’t believe I didn’t see that. Aside from that, it’s a great outfit Kara, you looked fabulous. And thanks again for getting me home xxx
