Wardrobe Fortnight

A bit of classic Bet Lynch leopard print number to start the week!
 I curled my hair a bit and thought I'd take  picture before it all went a bit limp!
 I managed to find a day that wasn't to rainy to wear my old suede shoes. I hate going to work in the morning in the rain, I hope the crisp winter days arrive soon and leave the gloomy grey rain behind!
 Dress 22 - E1 from Simply Be
Leggings 20 - Very / South
Shoes - New Look

 Casual Tuesday! I wanted to wear the vintage tweed jacket i picked up in my local charity shop recently. I like the masculine feel of it, but I have to admit that it looks better with my hair up!
 Jacket size? - Vintage
My little pony jumper 20 - Primark
Jeggings 22 (tall) - Dorothy Perkins
Boots - Asos

More Vintage!
 I did my hair in plaits then pinned them behind my head for a lady-like look!
 My colleague took these pictures, which is why I have so many silly pictures....
 Great skirt......
 Getting silly......
 Still silly.......
 Crisp me, blurred background?! SKILLS Sam!

Dress Size? - Vintage
Leggings 20 - Primark
Boots - Asos

 I totally forgot to take a picture of my outfit at the Anna Scholz sample sale, but Basically I was head to toe in Asos Curve!

 Fangs - Scarecrow (best fangs you can get, they look pretty real!)
Jumpsuit 24 - Boohoo
Flips - Crocs
 I was home on Friday to take delivery of this - the greatest bed in the world. Drawers at the back, ottoman at the front and a proper massive mattress. Silentnight for the win! This came from Carpet Right and it's the first time in history that the purchase & delivery of a bed has gone smoothly. I recommend them!

 So frigging dark that you can see the trousers, but just a super comfy outfit for a lazy day!
 Top 22 - Barbara Hulanicki for George
Trousers 20 - Swan / Evans

 I had a bit of a low key work event to go to on Monday night so i wanted to look smart.
 I wore my brand new Anna Scholz double silk dress. It's goddamn delicious!
 These are the boots I got last year from Yours clothing. Their XXL size knee highs are a great fit but they have zero padding so I will put insoles in before wearing them again.... MEGA sore feet by the time I got home!
 Dress 22 - Anna Scholz White Label
Leggings 22 - Very / South
Boots - Yours clothing

 So it seems like Tuesday is my casual day?!
 To be fair, my feet were so achey after wearing those boots yesterday that I wanted to wear my most padded footwear, so I had to dress to match my hi-tops!
 Again, it's hard to see because of the lame lighting, but the jeggings are the new look high-waisted acid wash ones. they ride down a little bit, but they're generally comfy!
 Jumper 20 - Primark
Jeggings 24 - New Look
Hi-tops - Nike

 I had totally forgotten about this skirt.... I decided to wear the jumper and then wasn't sure about which skirt. Went to the wardrobe and was like LEATHER!
Jumper 20 - Primark
Skirt 26 - Asos Curve
Legings 20 - Primark
Boots - Asos
 I was at the V&A on Wednesday morning to see the Horst Exhibition
 I really enjoyed it, definitely worth a look. The huge collection of vintage Vogue magazines are very cool!
I want this dress please!
 It has become a tradition for me to buy some cheap jewellery from the V&A shop every time I visit. They always have cool stuff for under a fiver. I couldn't resist the cutlery earrings (this other one is a spoon!
 In other (important) news, Marks and Spencers have outdone themselves with this years Christmas sandwich selection!

 I still love this shirt, it's so frigging awesome!
 Brilliant Asos Curve Jeans. SO glad I bought these!
 Comfy casual!
 I thought I'd actually include my coat in this too, because I don't wear it very often - just because the sleeves aren't full length and there's no collar so I can't wear it when it gets properly cold, but it's quite thick so I can't wear it in the warm weather! Love it though, it's beautiful!
 Shirt 24 - George
Jeans 22 - Asos Curve
Shoes - Asos
Coat 20 - Anna Scholz
Bag - Dorothy Perkins
 I accidentally bought another Christmas t-shirt from Primark. whoops!

 Granny chic!
 Pretty vintage dress for a mild Friday.
 This is an old favorite that I got in my hometown.
 Dress size? - Vintage
Leggings XL - H&M
Shoes - Charity shop

 On Saturday I did something that I very rarely do - I went to a blogger event! TK Maxx are working on their plus size offering (I bet some of you didn't even know TK Maxx sold plus size did you?!) and wanted to discuss our wants and needs as plus size customers. It was so nice, and I think we put forward a compelling argument as to why they should put plus size into more (hopefully ALL) of thier stores! Here are the lovely Caroline and Leah!
 Georgina.... drool-worthy hair huh?!
 I wish I could remember what Naomi was gesturing about... it was a funny afternoon! You can also see the lovely Hollie and Georgina!
 The always fabulous Mrs Bebe took my outfit pics for me, which is why I'm pissing about again!
 We had such a lovely afternoon, and It has to be said... we pretty much all had the same opinions about what we want to be able to buy on the high street!
 The ladies from TK Maxx were genuine and lovely. Sometimes you can tell when people are really working hard to make their customers happy, and I really look forward to being able to shop in TK Maxx again.... something I haven't been able to do since I was in my early 20's (before they removed the plus lines from loads of the stores!).
 Dress 24 - Anna Scholz Black Label
 Necklace - Black Heart Creatives (bespoke!)
Boots - Simply Be
 3 bloggers and a big mirror. It was bound to happen!
 I went home to my love, full of afternoon tea treats....
 .... and changed into boohoo joggers and a Primark jumper almost immediately! Lush day.


  1. So lovely to see you on Saturday! Shame we got split up for the day as we didn't get to chat, but hopefully there'll be another event we're both at soon. You looked so fab in your Anna Scholz dress. I am very impressed with your pic of me here - please may I pinch it? xxx

  2. I know! Never mind, we shall meet again! Help yourself to whatever pics you want xx

  3. You looked belting on Saturday (as ever!) Like Caroline said, it was a shame we didn't get to gas a bit longer. But at least we had a big squeeze! Can I nick your pic (with a link to your blog of course)? xx

  4. I'm pleased that TKMaxx are finally getting their act together on plus size stuff. I actually left feedback for them about a month ago that I was very disappointed that it was so difficult to get hold of anything over a 16. I'm very much on the cusp, I can sometimes get into knitwear and some of the baggier tops, but dresses are just a dead loss (and as that's the majority of my clothes buying.....) so good on TKMaxx for making an effort with a focus group, and thanks to all you lovely bloggers at the event. It looks like you had a blast!
