OOTD

Dress - ASOS Shoes - New Look Tights - Ebay Belt - Evans Bag - Gift shop in Wales Necklace - Shoe shop in Ricky

Just thought I'd make a quick post & show you all what I am wearing today. Don't you love my new bag? I found it in a little shop in Wales whilst I was away. It's a pinky/peach nude shade, & has gorgeous beading all over it. I thought I'd wear my 2 favourite colours, coral, & nude. I think they work really well together.

Thanks also to everyone who has entered the giveaway, remember you have until 12pm GMT tomorrow to enter! Winners will be revealed at some point after the closing time on Saturday.

Also wanted to show you the harness I made. When I saw a link for this DIY on Natalie's blog, I just had to try it. I don't normally go for "edgy" pieces, but I thought it might work nicely over an ultra feminine dress. I think it looks quite nice over my new ASOS dress, opinions?

We even had the woodburner going every night in Wales. Anyway, just have some photos to share, sorry for the picture heavy post, but I hope you like them!

Hellooo & a Photo!

Hello again everyone! :) Firstly I just wanted to post this pic of the New Look dress, I just snapped a quick pic when I was trying it on. It's just as cute irl as it looked in the pic, so I am super pleased with it. It fits perfect, not too tight, despite it having no stretch & me supposedly a 30 & it a 26. Seriously sizes confuse me! It's light, perfect for summer & the print is super adorable. For £20 it was a bargain! Can't wait to accessorize this & wear it out!
In other news...
I am going away for a week on Friday. Only to North Wales, nowhere exciting, but my Grandparents have a cottage up there & I am going with my family & our 2 little dogs to have a nice relaxing time. I won't be able to post whilst I'm up there, their cottage is literally in the middle of nowhere. You have to travel down a half mile track from the road to even reach the house, so there is no phone line. :( But, it is beautiful up there & I shall be taking lots of photos & outfit posts, so expect a big update when I get back! I'll leave you with this photo I took last year of "The Cottage", as our family calls it, oh so originally! :P

Oh oh also, before I forget, I am super close to 100 followers now, just 6 more to go & I will be having another giveaway, so do look forward to that!

Storage

Where do you keep all your lovely clothes & accessories? I thought it might be fun to show you where I keep mine. I have 2 wardrobes filled with clothes, as you can see in the picture above. The picture on the left shows my built in wardrobe, which is filled with my tops & dresses. The one on the right is a freestanding wardrobe from Ikea, which I recently had to buy to contain my ever expanding collection of clothes! That wardrobe has trousers, cardigans & skirts hanging in it. It also houses my large collection of shoes, as well drawers full of things like leggings, tights & bras. I also keep my "chunky" necklaces in there, along with a basket of toiletries. As you can see, both wardrobes are cram packed with stuff.

I keep my jewellery in lots of different containers on my dresser. I have one of those doll/figurine stands also, as well as these cute little cupcake case shaped pots, in which I keep bracelets, sweater guards & brooches. I have 6 proper jewellery boxes, but those are filled with my "real" jewellery, the ones out on my dresser are just my cheap costume pieces. Most comes from Primark, or I made myself!

Finally, for bags & hair accessories, I store them in this wall mounted unit (actually a shoe rack built the wrong way on purpose, lol), along with other junk from my room. I only put frequently used bags in here, the rest are stored in a plastic container under my bed. You can even see my new bag from ASOS-the black patent heart quilted one. In the section above that, there are boxes in which I keep my hair accessories, the headbands are to one side of them.
Well that's basically the end of where I keep my wearables. I do have a lot more storage, but it is filled to the brim with craft supplies, the dresser I mentioned is not filled with clothes, but with wool, bubble envelopes, deco paper & spools of thread & scrap fabric! Hehe :)

New Dress

How darling is this dress? I literally just spotted it on the New Look website & placed my order! I know how fast cute dresses sell out in a size 26 in the Inspire range, that floral dress I bought a month or so back sold out in the 26 in just 2 days, & I didn't want to take any chances! Did I mention it is only £20? *squee* I also order 2 bracelets, as it is buy one get one free on all jewellery atm, so I got both for the price of one. I'm a very happy girl right now :)

Just a quick OOTD from me. This is what I wore today, to go and vote! Nothing too dressy, but still cute! Barefoot here, but I just wore some black patent pumps. Also, please excuse Button, he really wanted to be in the photo, I took quite a few & he stayed for every one!!! Silly dog :P

I got the Sugar Doll award x2 from both Forays in Fatshion & Jasifer Lions Club. And lastly I got the Beautiful blogger award from Coco of Black Crushing Sea!
Thank you all so much for these awards, I really appreciate them!

OOTD

Hello everyone! I have an outfit to show you, well rather an item of clothing, but shh! I'd been lusting after the rose coloured mac from ASOS Curve for ages, and I finally got it the other day. It's just as lovely in real life as it was in the model shots, I am so pleased with it.

I wore it out today to shop & have lunch with my family. The design is just perfect, I love the way it flares out from the hips-very flattering. I was initially worried about it fitting, as I tend to be a 30, and this is a 26, & even though all the other stuff I've had from ASOS fitted, they tended to have some stretch, whereas this didn't. I didn't really need to worry though, as it fits perfectly. Maybe a smidgen tight around the bust, but that can be a problem for me on my usual sized items. The arms are not too tight, nor too loose, which can sometimes be the case. The sleeves even have cut puffs at the top to give you nice defined & sharp shoulders. The design details, like the flap over one side of the bust, and the corset lacing in the back, all make this more interesting to the eye, which I really love.

Underneath I wore my cream lace dress, & some cute accessories, finished off with some black kitten heels. Lovely!

Also wanted to say a huge thank you to all my commenters, followers & readers! I really appreciate having you around & I hope you enjoy reading the blog. I am planning another giveaway for when I reach 100 followers, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
