Since receiving some fantastic feedback from my fashion posts, I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to show more of my wardrobe to you. It’s quite a daunting feeling putting fashion posts on the blog, especially as I’m primarily a beauty blogger and as it’s so much less intimidating to show off my hands and lips when doing make up swatches. As I’m not a a petite slim twenty something, confidence is an issue when it comes to showing off full length shots of how I look, but thankfully, my posts have been embraced and people actually want to see more of this plus sized, curvy thirty something. Whether it’s because I’m catering more to a target audience, or because my sense of style is hitting a wider audience, I do not know, but what I do know is that your support is instilling a confidence in me that I didn’t think I had. For that, I thank each and everyone of you who takes the time to comment on my posts and share them to your friends.
With summer peeking through the clouds, I have chosen an outfit today that that is perfect for the warm weather. A garden party, a summer wedding or an afternoon out with friends, the little white dress replaces the classic little black dress to make it a more current and weather appropriate wear. Closet Curve by Closet London specialises in clothing in sizes 12-26. Whatever your size, you deserve to wear pretty clothes and dresses and I love brands that take their current offerings and make them available in larger sizes. Whilst sale shopping I spotted the Closet Curve White Tie Dress in the Simply Be sale via Love The Sales. Love The Sales has become my new go-to website for sales, and with everything under one website, it’s making sale shopping a heck of a lot easier. The Closet Curve dress is made of a crepe style material, that not only washes well, but irons easily. The cut of the dress is exceptionally flattering and as I have a large bust, I look for clothes that have pleats and darts in the right place that emphasise my figure, flatter my chest and show off my waist. I think this dress definitely ticks all the right boxes. I adore the longer floaty sleeves that cover up my dreaded upper arms, whilst the dress sits at the right length on my nearly 6ft frame, without being at all revealing. The simple yet effective wrap front dress is classy and sophisticated and makes the dress exceptionally wearable for a number of occasions.
I’ve paired my dress with two more finds from Love The Sales. The Biba Heels from House of Fraser were a fraction of the retail price, reduced from £79 to £41. Mint green in colour with a beautiful gold plated toe printed with the signature Biba print, they fit comfortably and look a lot more expensive than they actually are. The Biba logo adorns the ankle strap fastening, and the low heel gives legs a slim and slender shape. With the heel being a mere 3 inches, there is no pain on the leg when they are worn for long periods during the day, or night.
To say I’m a bit obsessed with Ted Baker is an understatement, so when the Ted Baker Tabatha Bag dropped into the sale at half the price, it was ordered and on its way within minutes of seeing it. A perfect sized bag in this seasons hottest colour of mint green, I was so excited for it to arrive. Having recently purchased a new Ted Baker purse, I couldn’t wait to get my bag. Featuring an enamel bar across the front of the bag, with winged edges, the bag is perfect for daytime. For a small bag, it’s surprising just how much can fit inside. With interior pockets to keep special items secure, and smaller pockets for phones and lipsticks, it’s just wonderful. I love the special touches; mini Ted Bakers embossed on the silver hardware and the zips with cut out T designs, the attention to detail on each piece of the bag is very special. The Tabatha bag seems to have sold out now but there are still some amazing bags in the Ted Baker Sale.
