Retro Party Wear with Voodoo Vixen.




Penny Dress: c/o Voodoo Vixen. Anastasia Muff: Collectif. Hair Flower: Claireabella's Closet

My love for Voodoo Vixen knows no bounds and this is another fabulous piece from them! Probably one of the prettiest and well fitting dresses I've ever had. here I'm wearing a 3xl and with the stretch in the fabric it hugs my figure perfectly and is really comfortable. I actually wore this with a long sleeved black tee under for Clothes Show from 6.30 in the morning until 6.30 at night and I felt so discomfort at all. As with some repro dresses I find the fabrics can rub on my skins and irritate it or cut into my tummy when I sit down but this doesn't at all! 

The flocked lace overlay sets the beautiful green colour off perfectly and this is something I wouldn't initially pick up for myself on first glance but the more I see it (hanging pride of place on my wardrobe door at this moment in time) the more I adore it! The tie at the neck is also a darling feature so much so I genuinely don't think it needs a necklace or all that much jewellery at all. I decided to style it up with a flash of a red rose in my hair (to match my lipstick!) which I picked up from one of my favourite stands at The Vintage Suitcase fairs, I never seem to leave there empty handed! Finished the look with this darling hand muff, I've been after one of these for years and when Collectif popped this one in the sale I decided to snap it up! 

I really wish these photos were nicer as I don't think they show how stunning this dress really is. Unfortunately cold weather and wind were against me, I must find better places to take my photographs! 

I've seen some of the upcoming pieces for Voodoo Vixen and they're so stunning I can't wait for you to see!

Feeling Festive with Curvy Kate.




Bra and Short: c/o Curvy Kate. Top: Dorothy Perkins. Hair Accessories: Crown and Glory.

I LOVE THIS BRA. 
There I said it, I've fallen in love all over again with the fabulous Tease Me from Curvy Kate

I received one a couple of years ago and utterly adored it but my boobs grew and if I wore it now I'd get the dreaded boob overspill and I knew it was time for a upgrade so I was oh so happy when they brought this style back and the lovely ladies at Curvy Kate sent it across to me! I've only tried one other style from Curvy Kate which is the Daily Boost as I'd heard so many positives about it from bloggers and non bloggers alike but I have to say it's nothing compared to Tease me for my own shape anyway I would like to try some other styles just to see but I genuinely adore this one so much!

I was sent a 38E which the centre core of sits flush against me and I feel well upholstered but not restricted and uncomfortable which is a major plus in my book! Of course the bra itself is oh so pretty and I feel pretty in it which is the Rosie of years gone by would have never have thought would matter with underwear and lingerie but it genuinely does! I also got to try the Suspender Short in a UK20 and they fit really well and actually cover my bum which is something I find a rarity with pants in this day and age these also made me feel pretty and I look forward to trying some hold ups with these and one of my pretty vintage dresses, finally the festive part of this post is my lovely hair accessories from Crown and Glory, always have the cutest bits and bobs!

I will just say again how much I LOVE this bra and Curvy Kate in general. they are AMAZING.

7 Things for my Bedroom Change.

 
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.



Now winter is truly upon us (who else has noticed how it’s all of a sudden gone freezing? Normally I’m really warm blooded so don’t tend to notice but this year I have! Brrr!) I think it’s time for me to start taking a look at my little bedroom and see what I can do to make it feel more me. I’ve not had much changed in my room since I was about 16/17 so it’s time for a change and a drastic one at that! All my furniture is a mish-mash of random bits from an array of shops and it would be so lovely to include some of these Cookes Furniture pieces to bring my whole bedroom together in harmony. The sweet vintage aesthetics would work perfectly for what I have in mind for my little home improvements over the next year or so, unfortunately I just don’t have the space or time to drag everything out and start afresh so it will most likely be lots of little projects going on for months and months! 

Most of the time if I want a little room restyle I go for a new duvet cover and some cute cushions as well as other trinkets and frames I pick up all over the place and I have to say the range of pieces from the George Home range at Asda are oh so good! I’ve managed to get a number of lovely retro inspired duvet covers from them since the summer as well as some of the cutest and most fun cushions I’ve ever seen. The quality is also really good so I’m never disappointed as the images are always true to product you receive which is something that often doesn’t happen when it comes to home wares! Being a fashion design student I just couldn’t resist adding the lovely bust to my wish list as it would work perfectly with the pieces already in my bedroom and the R cushion is calling my name so much so that I may have made a rather cheeky order! 

What do you do when your room needs a little re-style?
