My week in outfits

I have been quite religious of late with the outfit posts, so I figured for anyone interested in what I've been wearing and where it's from I thought it might be helpful to put it all in a sort of round up...



In a size 22 (I can vary at Monsoon and sometimes am a 20 or even an 18 at Monsoon), I bought this dress on sale last week. It is still on sale on the Monsoon website for just £16.50. Lovely pattern, easy wearing for work. A winner



Old turquoise cardigan - Marks and Spencers

This was my first Dolores Doll dress (I know have five, and have just ordered a sixth) and I wear it to work whenever I need a little boost. I was blindsided by a nasty cold on Tuesday so I wore it to lift my spirits and it worked (until about 2pm when I went home for a big sleep). If you are looking for the ideal dress, Dolores is it!


Bardot style, off the shoulder top in cranberry - Asos Curve
Navy full fifties style skirt - Collectif

I love this outfit. I don't wear separates that often, as I think dresses tend to flatter my shape best and they're so easy to throw on and just add a cardigan and some accessories. But this skirt I love. The Collectif store in Old Spitalfields Markets tends to sell samples in a variety of sizes at crazy low prices and the last time I was in there I bought this skirt. It's a size 24 so a bit too big in the waist, but still bearable. I love off the shoulder tops - I like my shoulders and they add a bit of interest to a simple outfit.

Belt - Primark

Two Dolores dolls in one week! I had drink after work on Friday followed by dinner with friends, so I decided to dress up a little rather than go with my usual casual Friday jeans get up. I cannot overstate how wonderful I feel in these beautiful dresses. 


Photographic floral print dress - Asos Curve
Turquoise cardigan - Marks and Spencers (anciently old)
Belt - Primark

This dress doesn't photograph that well, but is one of my favourite dresses for an evening out. It's made of a satin like material with a subtle sheen, has a pleated skirt and the fit is perfect. I longed for it, and kept looking at it on Asos Curve for weeks, but when it came time to place my order my size was sold out. Gutted! However I did some regular haunting of Ebay, and eventually someone sold it in my size (a 22) and it is still one of my absolute faves.

No point in including Sunday, as I intend to spend most of the day in PJs and sweats. And why the hell not? Have a great week my lovelies x
