Monsoon Spring – new season picks

plus size dress from Monsoon

You know how much I love Monsoon – quirky but wearable fashion that goes up to a size 22.  Monsoon is great for knits and jeans, but there is something about their love of colour and prints which I think makes them especially good for spring and summer dressing.  Let’s face it in some Monsoon …
