We all play that game, don’t we? If we won the Lottery we would do this, and then this. My husband and I have already mentally divided up percentages we would give to certain family members, and what kind of house and vehicle we would immediately be buying the moment we won. We’d pay off any debts that we have, chuck a couple of grand to our favourite charities – but let’s be honest, the real fun comes when you get down to the completely frivolous and utterly reckless shopping! And there is nothing I would rather indulge in than fashion.
A lottery win means money is no object, so I would definitely start my spending across the pond. Probably literally, by flying over to somewhere in the US with a suitcase full of dosh and a map to the nearest plus size store.
The Disney range at Torrid has been my ultimate eye candy for a while now. The cutesy colours, the touch of edge, the adorable bow on that shirt – I can’t get enough of it. I swear I would go around the shop and grab one (or ten) of every single item just so I could say I owned it. My personal favourites are the items that have Ariel on them, but growing up a redhead I was always going to be drawn to her!

The next stop on my Lottery trip of wonder is to my old favourite, Witch Worldwide. You guys, I have never actually owned an item of clothing from there. The customs charges are just too too much, and I can’t bring myself not to fill an entire basket with those deliciously sombre accoutrements. I won’t go on about Witch Worldwide because I have already dedicated an entire article to lusting after their wares, but I will just reiterate that those cropped jerseys are everything and I most definitely need to win the Lottery pronto and get myself in on the witchy action.
Once I got back to the UK, I would probably put my feet up and immerse myself in the finest fashions that the internet has to offer. I swear, Navabi are like the creme de la creme of plus size fashion for me. I feel like I am never going to be able to afford everything I want from them without that Lottery win, but I would definitely consider it worth my while to slowly but surely build up a collection of Navabi glamour. They are killing it in the colour game this Summer, giving us a whole range of pinks which make the heart soar. The Arched Eyebrow collaboration offered this adorable pink gingham to the mix – as well as a whole lot of colour in the rest of the range! – and these bright little numbers are the perfect way to add sunshine to a rainy July afternoon.
Beth Ditto’s line was one of those luxuries that I could never afford at the time – but hey, if I’m winning the Lottery, I’m doing it in style. I want high end, ridiculously expensive, luxury bitch styling, and Beth Ditto gives me that in spades. The eyelash patterns are among my favourites, and denim jackets will always have a special place in my heart.
And finally, there is Plus Equals. They are the ones to watch in the British fashion game right now, and my Lottery win would have me bedazzled with their finest fringing and glitter. The pom-poms, the suede, the garish designs: all of it is so in right now, so daring, and such a huge middle finger from the plus size community to anybody who tells us to shy away in the corner.
And I’m sorry, but I’m not winning the Lottery without a little pamper session. I’d round up GG, Daisy and all of the girls here at She Might Be and get us all over to the fanciest hotel I could find where we would eat anything and everything we wanted, while we had our feet massaged and our nails painted. Who fancies joining us?!
