Recently Love The Sales got in touch, and I had a gander around their website. Impressed! Being a tall girl I struggle with finding things that fit, normally if online clothing shops do have a tall range it’s only a few items, and it takes AGES to hunt for something I like. It’s a website that pools together discounted products from other websites, so you can find brands you like at better prices. What’s not to like? The best thing I did on Love the Sales was search the word “tall” in the box in the top corner – Pandora’s box was opened, it was now only showing me lanky lass clothes. Then on the left sidebar I selected my clothing size, like magic I’m only seeing things in the tall ranges of several stores, just in the 2 sizes I usually buy from and if you then sort it […]
Do you remember back in winter I tested out Wingz*, well I’ve got a new set of Wingz*. Plain black in the tall range. I wear these a lot of the time under normal black tops where the sleeves just aren’t long enough for gigantic ole’me. This morning when I got dressed I was in a daft, quirky mood, decided I was wearing browns and black.
Recently House of Fraser were kind enough to send me a couple of dresses of my choice. Anyone that knows me in real life knows I dress quirky, one day it might be a see through dress, or a loud patterned maxi dress, the next day perhaps a mini dress over jeans or leggings. I don’t often just do normal plain clothes. My first choice was a skater dress by Koo-Ture. This is not a brand I have ever heard of, but I really like the pinafore styling of the top half of this dress. What I will say is the sizing is way more generous than I expected, meaning this dress is actually too big. If you are looking at buying Koo-Ture I’d strongly recommend ordering the size smaller than you think or order both and return one. The best bit of this dress is the weird sleeves, it […]
A little while ago House of Fraser asked me to pick a new dress. For me that is a challenge, I’m not great at buying clothes for myself. However I had a rummage through the massive selection online – it took me about two hours, really. I am so indecisive. In the end I sent a short list and was sent a surprise from my choices. It was an adorable skater dress with huge sleeves. It is strange, its the type of thing I used to hate, it reminds me of the curtains in my late Grandparents garage but now I kind of like oranges and browns. This is a great mixture of subtle (almost boring) colours swirled into a fantastic print, but the shape is the killer. The skirt from the waist is a full circle. If I spin on the spot it will be out flat like Upsy […]
I have never been to Cheltenham races, even though I live so close to Racecourse. We’ve all heard of Ladies day (which is on the 11th of March this year), crazy dresses and wild hats. This year though Cheltenham are doing things differently. The best dressed fillies will be chosen solely via social media. They are calling this contest #ColourMeMarch and I’ve entered.
