share some of the stuff I think is cool!

I have a dangerous dress obsession which means that I regularly have to have a big clear out… one in, one out as it were! Below are some examples of stuff I've sold on the old Ebay - I haven't got anything up at the moment but if you fancy keeping and an eye on my selling page it's here - I'll tweet when I add new items!
One of the odd things about ebay though, is that some of the items I expect to sell for 99p sell for £30, and others I expect to sell for £30 don't sell at all. This is the case with a lovely Party dress from Next that I had up there. I've had it for years and although it was quite expensive I have never worn it! I want it to go to a nice home - to someone who will appreciate (and wear) it, so I am giving it away to one of my readers (if anyone wants it that is!).

A trip into London today to see my lovely friend required warm clothes that could cope with rain, so nothing too exciting, but my lovely new Samsung galaxy s3 has a decent camera so we took snaps anyway !
After borough market we want to my current favorite London festive spot, Hayes galleria I think it's called (on the river by London bridge station).
I like layers on days like this, so went for some thick primark stirrup leggings, asos curve swan dress, croc boots and an old puffa coat from George. Love their padded coats, so warm!
I came home looking like a drowned rat!
This is the 1st post I've done from my mobile so I've no idea what it will look like - let's see!

Now then... ASOS curve, not much fuckin' better!

this dress cool? I think i'm in love with the utilitarian simplicity, but I'm just not sure if it would look good on me?! I'd certainly be a bit nervous about making a mess of the white shirt. It's reduced to £29, and I'm tempted to try it.....
this top, and I've seen it on bloggers so I know how cute it looks in real life. My problem is that I don't know what I'd wear with it. I wear plain trousers less and less these days. And £24.50 is more than I'd normally spend on a top.....
this dress, but I'm suspicious as it's been on the site for SO long. I feel like there must have been lots of returns?! Makes me think of Star-trek and I like that. To be fair though I think I'd have to go for the black version because sadly I don't suit mustard. It's only £21 & it looks warm. Thinking thinking...
this dress right from it's first appearance but I've been waiting for it to get super cheap. I'm thinking that £31 is as cheap as it's going to get. My problem is that I don't think it would look good with a cardi or jacket, and I never go sleeveless unless on a beach. Hummmm.....
this shirt looks fabulous. Annoyingly there are no photos on the site showing the front untucked, and as I never tuck anything in I'm not sure it would work untucked? £22 not bad for a proper shirt though....
This isn't in the sale, but for £35 it's pretty reasonable. It's something I'm having a love / hate relationship with. I just can't decide if I like it or not. I love the white pockets and swing style, but the white arms & short length throw me off. I want to see it on a big girl!
These wont be new to anyone (Both Gabifresh & Myarchedeyebrow have them and look fab) but every time I look at them I think 'my thighs are so big that the sequins would rub off within minutes of me walking around in them'. You know what though, it's nearly Christmas and I like sparkles so now that they're £18 I'm going to order them!
This dress is so cute. Down from £50 to £35. Festive colours, shiny thread.... but it looks so short! I wonder if it's one of those situations where it looks short in the picture but is much longer in real life, like with many of the dresses I've tried from ASOS Curve.....
I'm going to order a few things and get back to you. The most wonderful thing about ASOS is that you get free delivery, and lovely simple free returns via collect+ (avoiding the nightmarish post office is always preferable!), so I'm not scared to make big orders and try stuff out. Decisions decisions....

This is my lovely dress - I completely fell in love with it. I had the red version for a while too (before I sold it after realising that having the same dress in 2 colours when I have nearly 100 dresses is just insane!).
I highly recommend this dress - it's shiny, low cut, nips in the waist while the pleats cover the belly, it's short, it's stretchy, cheap and makes my tit's look like torpedoes! Everything I want is a sexy little black dress.
stud colour block dress from forever 21+. It's body-con and is under £20.
dress from forever 21+ because it is so very girly. It is sparkly and a-line making it look cute and innocent, but the nude colour just makes it feel a bit naked which I always think is super sexy. £22.75.
dress from Queen of Holloway. Not sure I need to sell this one - it's clearly amazing!
saucy little number from Asos! In the sale for £31.50.
I really like this dress, I think it's simple but the detailing make it a bit unusual. AX curve via New look £38.
dress from Very 'So Fabulous' would be really good for a smart work party. It's structured but is still smart and sexy. I think it's a ball buster dress! £39.
Ruby's Closet dress from the new look website would look super sexy on. It's got the ruching that you get on much more expensive dresses (like the ones you'll see further down) but it's only £42.
this dress. A frock for a cool girl I think! Simply be £55.
rock chic dress if I ever saw one! Personally PU makes me sweat just looking at it, but if you can hack it then I reckon this would be a winner! Simply be £55.
this dress for myself. I've loved these floaty swing dresses ever since I was a little girl, and this one is prefect to me. Nude with lovely Tim Burton-esque black spindly flowers. I'm having this if it goes on sale! Asos £65.
this one looks amazing in the pictures. I'd like to see it on a regular plus size gal! Simply be £85.
Flapper! I think I like the black version of this best, but this model is so lovely I wanted to use this picture! Simply Be £88.
Kiyonna Betsy dresses are. I have this in black and it's my work Christmas party dress this year. Pricey, but worth it! The ruching looks fabulous, and I do so love red dresses. £105 from Curvety.
boudoir lace dress is one that has been on my wish list for ages. I love the deep neckline and mocha colouring! £108.
Jersey gathered panel dress in dark forest print. Look at it for gods sake! Utterly delicious. £259.
Roberto Cavalli dress (via Navabi) might be for you then! If I were going to a very cool party (at a modern art gallery for example!) then this would be the dress I'd want to wear. It's so friggin' cool. If only my bank balance could cope with the £392 price tag!
double silk corset dress in Galaxy print. At £395 I think it's fair to say that this will never be mine. Even if it goes on sale I think it would still be out of my reach, but a girl can dream!
glitter-tastic top from ASOS Curve (£35). It would look amazing with trousers or a skirt, and I'm fairly sure that nobody could out-shine you if you were wearing this!
There you have it. My suggestions for top-notch festive party outfits!
P's, if you like any of the brands that New Look inspire sells, make sure to check the ebay shop 'my pretty plus' because they sell the same stuff for half the price! xx
