So to break up the current one note of my blog, here are some bits and bobs that I’ve worn over the past couple of months. I’d not felt like properly getting dressed up and taking outfit photos, but I would quickly shoot pictures on my phone…
These were the wellies I bought from Simply Be’s Bury launch last year. I didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to wear them, but if there was one good thing about February’s snowfall it was that I got to stomp about in these bad boys.
Jumper: H&M; Skirt: New Look Inspire; Bag: Accessorize; Ring: Primark
This was my dismal two attempts at Fatshion February – to be fair, I wore both of these outfits a few times, although the top one is my favourite as it’s bright! That pink cardigan cost me about £12 at least five years ago and is still going strong. I bought both skirts in one recent shopping trip at Westfield (I know, I know… consumerist bitch alert). Both the New Look and Forever 21 stores stock their plus size sections, and the panicky part of me felt like “if I don’t buy, they won’t make money, and they’ll think no fatties wanna shop there, and they’ll close the section! And this skirt’s only a tenner!”. I have to say both have served me very well, and I’m glad they’re in my wardrobe.
I also ordered, tried on a few items and snapped them before sending back:
ASOS Curve lilac skinnies. They looked better than I expected on, but I can’t deal with them being low-rise. I need things practically hoiked up under my bra! I’ve not worn trousers or jeans for over ten years, but I’ll keep my eyes open in future.
I was BEYOND excited when Ax Paris launched their Curves range that I placed an order at 3 in the morning as soon as I found out. I did, however, send them both back in the end. I sized up for the bodycon dress, however it was still a little too tight to be comfortable. But I loved the look of it with the sweetheart neckline, and if I order again I’ll just size up one more. The second dress I was also unsure about, and I think I’d size up just to be on the safe side. HOWEVER, I’m so, so glad this range is available!
Well, that all for today. I have a stinking cold/flu so I’m going to go hibernate in bed! Hope you’re all well, my lovelies. xx
