Cupcake dress – H&M, Buckled boots – New Look, Necklace – Oasis, Houndstooth Dress – Primark, Game Of Thrones tee – Primark, Lingerie Set – Gossard

It was one of those excellent shopping days – so many of my favourite styles are coming onto the high street, show me anything with a peter pan or shirt style collar with a nipped in waist and I’ll be throwing it into my basket and sprinting to the nearest till.  The H&M cupcake dress was featured in a post last week, but Primark had some new styles in with a beautiful Houndstooth collared dress – perfect for work or play – and an official Game Of Thrones tshirt for a bargain £6! It’s an incredibly soft tshirt and good quality too. Bizarrely I fit into a 12, yet the dress is an 18 due to no stretch to fit on my bust, it’s baggier on the waist so I’ll cinch it in with a belt. The cupcake dress is a 16, it just goes to show that sizes generally mean nothing. My wardrobe contains sizes 10-18 depending on where it’s from and the fit, I go by what fits best as opposed to what it says on the label.


I went out with friends last night and wore the New Look wide fit buckled ankle boots, and they stood up to a whole night of dancing! They have a chunky heel and ridiculous amounts of grip (the soles look like tyres!), perfect for slippery Rock City dance floors, with three buckles on each boot. I wore black and red polka dot socks to show a pop of colour through the cut out sections.  I wore another Primark top (this one is a size 14!) black lace with a Wednesday Addams style shirt collar and fishnets, teamed with a black New Look bandage skirt. Lipstick was MAC’s Cyber, with Nightmoth lipliner, and Urban Decay eyeshadow in Half Truth, with the Eyelure lashes from previous posts.

The lingerie set is the Temptation style from Gossard, in 34FF. It has full coverage cups. and the straps are beautiful (so many D+ sizes think straps need to be chunky great things with no adornments, not so with Gossard) and is lightly padded to add shape, with lace detailing across the top. The colour is a beautiful blue and purple – again to match my hair, and satin textured. It looks expensive and despite the lace detailing still looks smooth under a fitted tshirt.

The necklace is from Oasis, the perfect statement piece to dress up a plain black vest top or tshirt, I plan to wear it first with a maxi dress next week. It was a steal at £25, it’s surprisingly weighty with a thick chain and looks like it should cost a lot more.  I also caved and bought some beautiful Dr Martens boots, which I’ll review in the week. Have an excellent weekend!
