Sadly I won't be travelling the seven seas this summer, but today I wanted to be a pirate so out came this iron fist dress from ebay. The 50s style skirt (promise it's there) emphasises my small waist as does the waistband, while the button detailing on the chest and the halter neck add some nice detailing. This dress is fab for spinning in. I was feeling that piratey I even put my hair in a reverse fish tail and started swaying side to side. (Oh I do like to be beside the sea side)
Are you going away anywhere nice?
Today I went shopping and thought on this bright sunny day that I’d share what I wore with you. Sadly I couldn’t get a very good picture to show you my whole outfit so have included pictures of just the top.
Today I wore the most exiting and newest edition to my wardrobe, my first ever crop top from h&m. Sadly I couldn’t finds online but I’m sure you’ll be able to find it in your local shop, this was £5 in the sale. I pulled this tight around my middle to show off my tiny waist. This was purchased in a size 12 so is a little baggy on my size 10 frame, but fits over my chest with no gaping, I think a size 10 would have also fit but they sadly had no size 10 :(. The bottom is rather boring, I just put on some high waisted black leggings from topshop, allowing my stomach to be sucked in and my features (hips and waist) enhanced.
Hope you enjoyed this little post – what did you wear today?
As I said in my post last night I did something very exciting, well for me anyway. Incase you’re not a musical junkie like me and haven’t already guessed from the title, last might I saw my friends performance of “Little Shop of Horrors” and WOW. Anyway back to the fashion.
It’s been pretty hot in the UK recently and knowing the performance was to be in a hall with no windows, no doors, no ventilation but lots of hot sticky people I needed something that would keep me cool yet still be appropriate. Apparently wearing a just underwear isn’t (I was heart broken). Underwear aside (for now ;))I went for a skirt and shirt combo with my trusty belt.
Firstly the top, I chose white as not only does it keep you cool but also adds a nice contrast to the dark of the skirt. I would like to point out this top is am extra small, and I by no means am an extra small, yet I think it fits like a glove. So ladies, try things on!! You will also notice I have tucked in the shirt to avoid the dreaded triangle, when the fabric hangs from your boobs leaving you with no shape.
Cheshire Oaks – Michael Kors – £10
Now on its own this shirt has no definition and quite frankly I looked like a sack of spuds, which is definitely not the look I was going for, so out came the trusty waist belt from primark to pull me in at the waist accentuating my hourglass figure.
Lastly the skirt, now I love this piece firstly because its simply pretty and secondly because it skims over my wobbly tummy and chunky thighs…yay for skater skirts. The sizing of this skirt was also a little shocking, this is In a size 10 and although I am now a size 10 I was certainly not this time last year, so like I said before. Try things on you may be suprised.
Cheshire Oaks – Oasis – £5
For those wondering I wore my blue satine bra bra from bravissimo, blogpost to follow. A well fitting bra is essential not only for the health benefits but also as it will show an hourglass figure off so you look show stopping. Not like you didn’t before ;). Hope your Friday night was as lovely as mine.
