Oh man, it is cold. This will be my constant refrain until next summer (if we get one). So, if I have to be freezing for months on end I’ll be doing it in style. Enter my chilly wish list.
I am still enthralled by velvet, but camel & faux fur are quickly creepy into affections. I’m dreaming of a soft & warm winter; with a tiny wee splash of glamour.

My photographer & I both had rough weeks. By Friday we were more than ready for a pick me up. The sun lured is outside for a cocktail & the prospect of dinosaurs coaxed us back in.
A hot day calls for something floaty & this shirt dress was just the thing. Paired with a lace effect dress I felt chic, not to mention comfortable.
Leaving the cinema to balmy summer’s night tempted us into a little blog shoot. I love photos taken in the last gasps of day light. That soft glow works for me.
Dress – H&M
Shirt Dress – Forever21
Shrug – Monsoon
Sandals – schuh
Bracelet – Made for me by my niece
The dinosaurs were marvellous. As with the others in the franchise Jurassic World seems to be very much on the side of giant lizards. I’m all for a summer blockbuster that’s telling humans to stop fucking with nature.
Last, but not least, a few snaps of my city basking in the summer sun.
I had a fairly important meeting last week & whilst I don’t really do corporate, I did want to look smart. I opted for this colourful, but almost conservative look.
Blazer – Primark
Skirt – H&M
Blouse – AsosCurve
Unfortunately I hated every single picture taken of this outfit, but have opted for the least offensive. Note the big, fat side bun, a recent innovation I’m enjoying.
Bag – Accesorize
This is my go to presentation bag as it fits my NetBook & everything else I need. I also love it’s giant tassel. The only downside is once it’s all in there it weighs a tonne.
I haven’t had much of a chance to check out all the high street sales yet, but I did find the time peruse the Asos sale. And what a sale it was. So many adorable things for hardly any pennies. I’ve placed my first order, but I have more items saved for later, which are likely to end up in my already over stuffed wardrobe.
These are the beauties I am awaiting.
I’ve not really been a fan of the duster coat trend, but this one spoke to me (it said ‘buy me’).
I’ve been prevaricating about sheer for a while now. I’ve seen lots of folk look awesome in it, but was concerned the scars on my tum would be visible. Well, the long & the short of it is, I said ‘fuck it’. Can’t wait to rock this.
This is standard choice for me. All things red must be mine & this style of dress is uber flattering on me. It’s wool, so should help me through some cold days.
I only ordered the trousers. I don’t really have use for another floral type jacket. I desperately wanted palazzo pants all summer, but couldn’t find a plus size pair I both liked aesthetically & felt good in. I know these are out of season, but I shall save them for summer. Or with a bit of luck I’ll wear then on my next Aussie trip.
Last & most definitely best is this leather look jacket. You may remember my failed search for the perfect leatherish jacket, well failed no more! This is right in every single way, it even has some yearned for faux fur. I need this on my body ASAP.
Thanks Asos Curve I love you & your fabulous fat clothes!
