WHAT I WORE



Lookbook | Chictopia
Dress (as a top): Motel* | Skirt: New Look
Sunglasses: Vivienne Westwood | Shoes: eBay

So it's pretty obvious I didn't actually wear this outfit out today, it's a little to glam~ for day wear. I've had this dress for a couple of months now, and because I'm curvy I find the dress to look a little too short on me, even with tights. So it's been hanging in my wardrobe waiting for me to figure something out, which I did when I saw this polka dot skirt. Sometimes I find outfit pictures are the best way to see how an outfit looks rather than being stood in the mirror for hours on end. I would never of thought to put these both together, but I think it actually works! You might think I look ridiculous, but I think wearing something 'out of your comfort zone' can be really good for your confidence and I will certainly try and wear it for a night out!

I haven't got much planned this week, if money was no object i'd be on my way to London for the ZOMGbloggersbash tonight, which think the whole of the blogging world will be attending. But I am very excited to say i'll be in London this weekend staying with Lily, hitting up IMATS and probably eating and drinking our weight in Nandos, tea and vodka. I've not seen her since August, so i'm sure lots of loltastic fun will be had!

I can't believe how quickly January has flown by. It's usually my least favourite month as it seems to drag, but here we are on the second to last day and one step closer to blazing sunshine (I hope) seeing this today made me want to cry a little bit inside! I hate the cold, more than anything so i'm thankful these months are speeding past!

Oh and just before I go, some of you may already know, some may not, but I do have two butterflies tattooed on my back. I do have a reason, it wasn't just a random thing I did when I was 17 but there's never been a chance to show you guys. The one on the left isn't fading or smaller than the other, it's just the light/angle. It's quite funny seeing them in photo form as I do often forget I have them as I never see them, so it's nice to have an updated photo!

I hope you all have a lovely week whatever you've got planned!

  50. I love it! I think it looks really ~futuristic~ with those glasses.! I love it, I might be biased because I love ANYTHING with sequins or glitter, but I really like it! And those boots are soooooooooooo nice! I definitely think stepping out of your comfort zone DOES bring confidence! But you have to do the perfect amount, too much can make you feel uncomfortable...

  59. I love this idea! I've got two sequin dresses that I got cheaply but don't wear very much due to being curvy as well! Can't wait to give them a little revamp :)

  62. The silhouette is really pretty. I think the shoes really elongate your legs, as the hair elongates your neck! So pretty, total win :)
