Plus Size Lingerie Boutique Review*

As a plus size lady I have often found a lack of options when it comes to fun and sexy lingerie, so when Plus Size Lingerie Boutique asked if I would like to review something from their range I was rather excited. (pardon the pun!).

I perused the selection and was quite overwhelmed with the choice in fact it took me awhile to decide but I did eventually settle on a chemise so here it is!!








Now to protect my modesty I'm wearing a bra and knickers underneath!! I love this chemise the lace is supersoft and very stretchy it easily accommodated my bra (which is no mean feat!!). I love the net at the bottom with the bows as it just finishes it off and covers my bum!!

If you are in the market for something saucy then head over and see what other chemises they have to offer!

Simply Be Partner Styling Christmas Challenge*

I was recently contacted by Simply Be and asked if myself and my husband would like to take part in a Christmas Styling Challenge whereby he would put together an outfit for me and I rate it to see how well he did!!

We were both really excited to do this as my husband is quite vocal when it comes to fashion and isn't afraid to say what he likes and dislikes!!

His first challenge was to choose the items and then make a board on Polyvore (I may have had to help as he has never used Polyvore before!!). This took some time as he mooched through the available options and kept changing his mind but eventually he got there!

So here is the board that Mr S created.

1. Anna Scholz Dress
He chose this as he knows I like a good form fitting dress and currently I don't own anything like this one and he likes to see me in things that show of my figure rather than hide it. He also liked the lace overlay and decided that a long sleeved party dress would be something a bit different from what I would usually wear.


2. Sole Diva Shoes
My husband knows that as much as I like heels I am useless at walking in them so he chose a pair with a lower heel but that would still give me a party look!


3. Clutch Bag
He chose this bag as he knows I have a weakness for anything that is sparkly but I also need something that my huge phone will fit in!!

4. Statement Necklace
Having seen me eye up lots of statement necklaces he knew I would like this one and he felt that as it was white it would stand out against the outfit.

Not only was he asked to choose an outfit but he was also tasked with helping to choose make up to complete the look. Now I did ask him if he wanted to apply my make up but he ran a mile so instead he chose it and I applied it!


He thought a smokey eye and strong lipstick would be the ideal look for this outfit and plenty of eyeliner!


THE VERDICT!
So how do I think he did? Well I think he nailed it this is very much a look I would choose for myself as I have long been a fan of Anna Scholz and I don't think I have ever owned a party dress with full length sleeves. The dress itself has a very stretchy lining but the lace has little stretch so bear this in mind if you are looking at this one. I also loved the sweetheart neckline of the lining and it covered my bra (which is often an issue) and even my bra straps look like a part of the dress. The length is good it comes down to below my knee so if you are taller than me this dress is a good option. The shoes are a perfect fit and just the right height and the necklace and bag are very me!!

Sorry for the blurry picture but I had the giggles!


I think you can see from the last two pictures how happy I am with the outfit!

Here he is in all his glory the wonderful Mr S!! 

 



So it just leaves me to say a huge thank you to Simply Be for inviting us to take part in this challenge as we had great fun and a big thank you to Mr S for having a go and picking an amazing outfit!

Party Shoe Picks!!

Hello I am back again with another look at what is on offer out there at the moment, and this time its party shoes!!!

(If you want to see my party dress picks you can do so here).

So lets get started.

1. New Look Wide Fit Black Cross Strap Glitter Heels

I have actually seen these heels in-store at my local New Look and drooled over them but ultimately didn't buy them (I may have bought another pair instead)!! I am always sucker for a bit of glitter and at £24.99 these aren't going to break the bank.

2. Anna Scholz T-Bar Studded Platform
If you would prefer something other than black then how about these platform heels from Anna Scholz for Simply Be? These are still good value at £33.00 and with the addition of the platform should be more comfortable for dancing the night away!

3. Evans Black Patent and Glitter Cut Out Shoes
If like me you are still a fan of the cut out trend then what about these beauties from Evans which are slightly different for a night out and priced at £45.00.

4. New Look Wide Fit Black Cut Out Heels

Last but by no means least if you like your heels high then why not try these platforms from New Look which at £27.99 are amazing value.

I hope you like my choices and I shall be sharing with you soon a pair of shoes that had to come home with me!!

Friday Floral OOTD

Hello and Happy Friday! I decided that as I wasn't at work today to take advantage of the light and take a quick snap of today's outfit!

I have to admit with the change of seasons I am quite enjoying going through my clothes and mixing my clothes with different shoes and adding layers to adapt them for the colder weather.

One such dress that I still adore is an ASOS Curve floral smock dress which I bought from Toni, it has seen me through the summer with leggings and sandals and now with tights and trainers.
