Lookbook / Chictopia

I really hate these photos today! They kept coming out so dark, so i tried to lighten them and this is as good as they got. I'm so picky about my photos, and i get really stressed when they don't go/turn out right. Does anyone else have the same issues? or am i just being totally ridiculous? Anyway, this dress is a Primark beauty from about 4 years ago? I'm not sure. It's actually a size 10!!! I don't wear it out the house, because it rides up and you get a right eye full of my bum! Plus it's a little too tight on my chest. But yayyyy for size 10! Don't get me wrong, the size on a label doesn't bother me. I will buy anything, no matter what size, as long as it looks good. A prime example is this cardi which is a size 22! But it's nice to get in to something on the smaller size rather than the bigger once in a while.

I had a really lovely time up in Sunderland with my ladies. I really didn't want to leave them and i actually cried when i got home. Which by the way was a right mission. I ended up getting to Newcastle station really early for my train (which is obz better than missing it) then it was 15 mins delayed because of line works, which also meant we had to divert. I had to change at York and I'm not even kidding when i say my train pulled in to the station 1 min before my connecting train to Leeds. I had to run, propa full on out-of-breathe-I'm-going-to-pass-out across the station! But amazingly i made it, with about 30 secs to spare. When i got home i had a quick change and a spray of my perfume and went out for a meal with Matt to celebrate our two year anniversary. Which was lovely, as ever! This weekend we've chilled out so much. Did the food shop, watched some films and cooked a roast dinner.

Today i need to crack on with uni work. We go back on Weds and I'm so not prepared for it! I'm going to have another cuppa, something for lunch then really put some time in. I'm thinking of spreading my work out on the living room floor and catch up on a few weeks worth of Desperate Housewives.

To anyone who's ordered some scrabble bits from me last week, I'll get them posted towards the end of the week. I'm now making necklaces (chains arrived on Saturday) so if anyone wants one of them drop me an email.

Oh before i go i just want to say a massive thank you to all your lovely comments on my recent posts. You're all very kind and you made me smile a lot! I'm very lucky to have such amazing readers on my blog <3

I've applied to become an intern at ELLE! If you agree with me, please vote Thank you!!

  1. This dress looks amazing on you! It makes you look so slinky and your thighs look fantastic. This dress deserves to be worn outside maybe with a longer cardi to preserve your dignity xx

  14. I love the pattern on the dress for some reason it reminds me of some really retro designs from the 70's! I'm the same with dress labels, I have coats that are size 16, I generally wear a size 8, unless I go for H&M jeans which i'm at least a 12 in :S But who cares as long as it fits :)

  16. Love you Vic <3 That dress is gorgeous, you've really come up trumps with finding that! So with you on the sizing business, most of the time its because H&M and Zara both have dodgy sizing, HAI SIZE 18 CARDYS. xxx

  17. That's a gorgeous dress and you are looking super slim in it!

    The mad dash across the station is a good thing - waiting at York (aka the coldest train station in the world) is HORRIBLE.

  22. Your hair looks amazing! I went through a phase of doing quiffs a lot but then completely forgot about it (not quite sure how as it's one of the 3 hairstyles I can actually do on myself).

  34. Great dress! I never look at sizes anymore because it varies so much from shop to shop. I agree on photos - when I started blogging I wasn't so bothered, but I've learned more about photography since I started, and now I hate to post something that doesn't meet my standards.
