Dolly Mixx Relaunch & an OOTD

Hey everyone:) Hope you are all well. I just wanted to tell you today that my website/shop Dolly Mixx relaunched today! I know some of you liked the cupcakes I posted a while ago & thought I would mentaion that they are now for sale ;). I've even created a special discount code just for you guys, just enter CUPCAKE10 to get 10% off your order.

I also have an OOTD for you today:) This is what I wore to (another!!) roast dinner with my family, this time we met up with my other Aunt. Sorry the pics aren't great, I just used my little Sony Cybershot for these, & had to use the flash because it was dark by the time we left.

Dress & Cardigan - Evans Tights - We Love Colors Rings - Miss Selfridge Bangle - Primark Bow - ASOS

I finally wore one of my pastel We Love Colors tights that I bought agggeees ago. I have to say, I still had the same problem with them, they kept slipping down, which was annoying! Oh well! I felt very lolita inspired today, what with the white (actually ivory) tights, pastel shades & flouncy dress.

Merry Christmas

Skirt - ASOS Top - South Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins Capelet - Miss Selfridge Shoes - New Look Watch - DIYed Rings - Evans & Primark

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely day yesterday, I did! I got some lovely presents, spent some quality time with my family & ate a delicious roast dinner. Yum! I also managed to take some pics of my outfit for you guys:P

My sister Charlotte came over in the morning to exchange gifts & then she took the doggies home with her to babysite them as it would have been too manic at my Aunt's with them. Charlotte didn't want to come, so she had to cook her own dinner for her & Dad, which I dearly would have liked to have seen, lol!

I even managed to persuade her to have her photo taken with me, a rare occurence, hehe!

Anyway, off to spend some time with my family now,

My Evans Competition Entry

So much for the last post being the last before Christmas Day! Anyway, I just wanted to show you my entry for the Evan's Christmas oufit competition, which the lovely Steph of Buttons, Bow & Brogues won today! Well done Steph, your outfit was lovely & you deserved to win! Anyway, it was just a little bit of fun before Christmas, so I just threw this outfit of my favourite Evans clothing together, & snapped a quick pic in the fading sunlight. The skirt, cardi, & shoes are all from Evans, although the Beth Ditto cardigan is the only one still on sale now.
Christmas Eve today! Still can't believe Christmas Day is tomorrow. I've spent today doing my nails & straightening my hair so it won't take so long tomorrow. Also had a nice bath & now I am getting excited at spending the day with my family tomorrow. Yay! Hope you all have a lovely day, whether you celebrate or not.

Last Christmas...

Since I will be showing you this year's Christmas outfit in a few days, I thought I'd revisit the past & show you what I wore last year. Some of you may remember it, as I was already posting on the Fatshionista LJ community at that time. It's funny how my style has developed over just a year, I haven't actually worn this dress since!
Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, as I probably won't be posting until the day after Christmas with this year's outfit. Thank you for reading & for all your comments, I really appreciate it:)

Snow OOTD

Coat - Next Hat - Craftster Swap Muffler - Custom Etsy Purchase Fingerless Mittens - New Look Wellingtons - Abersoch Felt Flower Brooch - Pwllheli Charm Brooch - Primark

What I wore to walk around in the snow taking photos. Wellingtons don't really go, but they are very practical for the snow! The coat is one I got last year, in the Next sale, for a mere £15 reduced from £50! I am eagerly anticipating this year's sale, Next always have unbelievably good sales, everything is half price or even less. They don't offer a huge plus size range, but some of their current stock is quite nice, & I have my eye on a few pieces, & am hoping they go on sale & I can get them for a steal!

I can't believe it's less than 5 days till Christmas now. This year has gone by ridiculously quickly! I am looking forward to Christmas day though, will be hopefully at my Aunt's, with most of my family. That's if we don't get trapped by the snow, there is supposed to be more over the next few days - eek! If we don't make it on Christmas day, hopefully we will still make it the Tuesday after Christmas, where we will be meeting up with the whole family at my Grandparent's. We always celebrate twice each year, because it's hard for everyone to get together on the same day, esp when all my cousins have other grandparents who also want to spend Christmas with them. I only have the one set, so we've nearly always spent the day with at least them. One of the present's I ordered hasn't arrived though - I am quite worried now! I ordered 2 dvds for each of my uncles from HMV on the 5th of Dec, & only one has arrived. It was posted from Guernsey, so eeek! Idk why they just didn't ship them together? Everyone else's are basically done & wrapped now!

What are you doing for Christmas?

Snow

We had more snow today, a lot more snow! We went out this morning to get "emergency supplies" for Christmas Dinner, just incase the snow carries on coming & we get stranded at home & can't make it to my Aunt's, where we are planning to spend the day. When we left there was snow on the ground, but not too much, & it had stopped snowing. By the time we left the shops there was several inches on the ground & even the main roads were covered. It took us 2 hours to make a 15 minute journey, along with some shouting, much stress, a few tears & some help pushing the car up a hill. Haha! Once we got home though, I just got into pjs & snuggled up on the sofa, enjoying the warmth!

Mr Socks was also glad to be warm & cosy indoors!

Don't have any outfit shots - couldn't be bothered in this weather. These photos were taken from the comfort of my own home :P I was was wearing a warm coat, a Rupert Bear scarf (cool, I know!), a dress, leggings, wellington boots, a beret & a muffler But you'll have to imagine that!

OOTD

Jumper - ASOS Lace Dress - Evans Boots - ASOS Fur Trim Socks - Topshop Ring - Miss Selfridge Bow - New Look Necklace - ASOS

This is what I'm wearing today. Nice & cosy, since it's still freezing, but also cute. This jumper is actually from ASOS main range, this is a size 18, which i'm obviously not, but it's still pretty large on me, when I would normally wear a 26 in knitwear. So definately try out sizes smaller, you never know if they will work or not. The jumper I wore in my last OOTD was an 18 also, & whilst more fitted, it still worked for me.

Also, don't you think my socks are such a good idea? They are normal socks, but with a fur trim. This way I can look like I have fur trim boots, & plain boots, without actually buying 2 pairs of boots. They also keep my ankles very warm, hehe!

Strawberry Nails

Sorry I haven't posted in so long, well, over a week:P Anyway, just wanted to show you a pic of my nails today. I did strawberries ages ago, & posted a photo on this blog. I thought I'd revisit the theme now I actually have green polish for the leaves, last time I used black. Also, I can't believe it is so close to Christmas now! 16 days! Eeek! Luckily I have done all of my Christmas shopping, I ordered most things online which was much easier - my local shopping centre is manic at this time of year. Does anyone else plan their outfit for the day well in advance? I do, but I am a little sad, hehe! Last year a wore a red silky dress & grey boots. I am undecided for this year, I want to wear 2 new things that don't go at all with each other, my lilac Evans jacquard dress, and some patent red maryjanes from Topshop. I am celebrating on 2 separate days though, so I get to see all of my family, so I guess I shall wear the red shoes one time, & the lilac dress another. With other items of course:P
