WHAT I WORE


Lookbook | Chictopia
Dress: Lavish Alice* | Blazer: Primark
Watch: Find Watches*
Shoes: Office via eBay

Well, i didn't think i would be posting an outfit picture for a while. But alas, here i am and I'm glad of it. For those of you who aren't aware, i posted a very personal post on Saturday night all about appearance hate. I am literally overwhelmed and completely flawed by the replies it had. I can't ever express how grateful i am for every single person who has wrote the kindest things to me over the past few days. I have read every comment, email, ask and tweet I've been sent and to say 'thank you' would be understatement. So for everyone who said 'Don't stop posting your outfit pics' this one is for you, for making me not give up and stopping doing something i love!

But enough about that, on to my 'Spring themed' outfit.... this blazer has got to be one of my favourite purchases of this year. I picked it up last week when i spent a couple of hours in Leeds Primark with the intention of spending a voucher i received for Christmas. I always like going in during the week as it's just so much quieter and you actually have a chance of shopping. I managed to pick up quite a few gems which if you follow me on Instagram (@vipxo) you'll have already seen! But if not, I'll be featuring them soon. I decided to team it with this coral chiffon dress from Lavish Alice. I got mine in a size 14, and i will say it's quite short on the sides so for the more curvy peeps out there i would say it might be more fitting as a long shirt, which is how i wore it yesterday afternoon.

I've got lots of time to myself this week which I'm quite happy about, i feel like I've done so many little things and been out a lot over the past two weeks I'm looking forward to getting on top of my 'to do' lists! I've got a night to myself this week too as my very talented boyfriend and his friends have made it in the top10 for a Jessops short film competition they entered so they're off down to London for a screening! It's a bit 'out there', but if you want to watch it then please go here! They've set up their own production company too so if you know someone who is looking for a video/promo being made then pop on over to their Facebook page! End of shameless boyfriend promoting~

I'm going to love and leave you with a song that has been stuck in my head for the past two days! Enjoy!

Thank you again....

  11. Love the colour combination and so thankful for this post, I have been eyeing up that dress for ages now but have not have not purchased it because there isn't a model wearing it on the website (I like to see what clothes look like on people before buying it instead of just a picture of the item) so thank you and you look great in the dress :) x

  12. Gorgeous colour combo!
    I missed your post about anonymous hate but just scrolled back and read it now. I cannot believe people have said things like that to you, it's so horrible. It's nothing short of bullying, and we all know people only bully cos they have problems with themselves. I'm so glad you're not going to stop doing outfit posts, it would be a real shame because you have fab style and you are gorgeous.

  82. I don't get around to reading all the lovely blogs I follow as much as I would like as I have a 7 month old daughter. I very rarely comment but your very personal post has made me want to say something.

    I have just caught up with yours and I cannot believe the thoughtless pathetic hate filled people that exist in this world. Don't you dare stop doing something that you love to do and we love seeing because of some brain dead morons! You are a beautiful looking girl, your personality comes across as fun and friendly in your posts. There is nothing wrong with you and don't let these idiots make you feel so bad you want to cry.
    I look forward to checking out your posts and I love seeing your outfit posts, in fact I might have to nip into primarni to see if they have that blazer myself! That post made me feel all spring like, its just a shame the weather up here is misty and cold so I will be reaching for a jumper today!!
