WHAT I WORE



Lookbook | Chictopia
Blazer: French Connection* | Dress: Jolie Moi*
Bag:
eBay | Shoes: Topshop

For someone who always looked twice at maxi dresses I'm sure embracing them now! Granted this one is actually long for my height (I'm only 5ft4) but paired with some heels it actually looks alright! I was undecided about this dress when i first saw it, but i must admit it looks a lot better in person and i love the full skirt with fitted bodice. I honestly feel really nice it it and as far as I'm concerned that's the main thing!

So you might have noticed (i hope you have!) that i have a brand new sparkly layout. I know this is my 3rd layout in so many months but cutting a very long story short my layout no longer felt personal to me and had to change it as soon as i could. So i designed this one and with the amazing help of Lauren & Faye this little gem went live last night and i couldn't be happier. I really like it, in fact i love it and i hope you do too! I've also put my most popular posts in to sections at the top so if you want to see my outfits, reviews and eBay related posts then they're all accessible with a click of a button.

As a thank you for all your continued support for me and my blog i've got ten pairs of sunglasses to give away from an amazing ebay store. I'll be giving you a chance to win two pairs every day (AM & PM) on various social platforms (Instagram (which is today), Facebook, Twitter etc) and I'll be randomly picking the winners at 9pm each night. Usual boring stuff applies, you must be follower on the platform you're entering on. As this is a giveaway for readers, you obviously have to be one to win!

So hands up who's devastated the Olympics are over?! Who screamed ''NOOOOO DON'T GIVE IT TO THEM!'' when Boris handed over the flag? What a brilliant two weeks it's been! I wasn't massively impressed with the closing ceremony, the highlight was certainly the Spice Girls and to be honest i wish they'd done the whole show! But it was a lovely way to say goodbye to the games and i hope people get just as excited for the Paralympic in a couple of weeks, i know i certainly will!

  1. You look so gorgeous. And how LONG is your hair woman? Amazing. The dress is really lovely on you.

    Waaaaaa I know! It was awful watching them hand it over, I think we did a bloomin' good job and I certainly feel very proud to be British after it all :)

  4. Loving your new layout Victoria, glad you feel its more you! I can't believe the Olympics are actually over either, I am so glad I actually got to see Team GB win a Gold and Silver medal at the Canoe Slalom but I can't wait to for the Paralympics to start, they can't come quick enough xxx

  19. Maxi dresses are pretty amazing at 'lengthening' out the body when worn. I think it makes you look a bit taller here. And you've at least got two inches on me!

    The Olympics just flew by. Can't believe it's been 17 days! The closing ceremony was pretty underwhelming. I watched about ten minutes and changed the channel. Just couldn't do it.

    The new layout is lovely. I think it's your best one yet! x

  43. I'm slowly getting into maxi's. It's quite hard as I'm the same height as you and everything is sooo long. Not to mention being top heavy, which causes me to need thick straps. It's extremely limiting.
