I had a few rough weeks, but I’m slowly getting back into the whole life thing. I have done some pretty cool things & knocked out some damn fine outfits this past week. Unfortunately I’ve entirely failed to get any photos worthy of an actual outfit post, so I’m giving you a mish mash medley of my doings.
Last weekend was a bank holiday & the sun decided to show up. Of course the entire of population of Glasgow rushed outside to soak up the vitamin d & shed their clothes. I happily joined them. On Sunday the Toyboy & I headed west to check out another Overheard in the Westend. Before enjoying the spoken word & music in the cavernous Inn Deep we had a drink by the river. All in all a perfect holiday Sunday in the sun.
Pinafore & Kimono – Asos Curve
On Tuesday we ventured out to see my all time favourite comedian Luisa Omielan. Her feminist, body positive routines are both inspiring & hilarious. Her latest show Politics for Bitches (for BBC3) goes even further. She’s taking comedy to new places by talking about our political landscape, the inequalities that created it & what we can do to grab back some power. The show in classic Luisa style is empowering, but with poignant moments as she shares her experiences of her mother’s brutal cancer journey & tragic death. She is filming in various locations, check her out if she hits your city.
Dress – Forever 21
I had to squeeze in a little medical treatment this week too, which left me tired & my body very tender. The rain arrived along with my fatigue meaning it was time for a cinema day. So, I ditched my underwire, slipped into a soft dress & met my fav Mummy & son pair at Cineworld. We saw The Guersney Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. The film was good; made me blub a little, but ultimately a happy ending. However, the best moment was definitely my nephew loudly filling his nappy during the big romantic scene. I love that boy. The film is worth a watch if you like a bit of period romance with stunning scenery & excellent retro fashions.
Dress – Primark
Now for the random likely section. I did a little thrifting this. Also a wee bit of bargain shopping. My bigger nephew turned 2, but is on holiday, so I prepped for his return. I obviously painted my nails, made some faces with my niece & clicked pics of generally pleasing things. I hope you likey too.
Ring – Glad Rags
I am a bad fashion blogger. I keep forgetting to take outfit pictures. What’s worse is I’ve missed some really good looks. Anyway, here’s a quickie & I’ll definitely get some more this weekend.
I’ve wanted a pinafore dress like this for ages, but everything I tried on was wrong. I snapped this one up with my ASOS VIP points & crossed my fingers it would look cute on. Lucky me, it did.
I wore it with my denim shirt for warmth whilst running around getting some messages done & it’s perfect. Very comfortable, very flexible & very adorable. Even if I do say so myself.

The pics were taken at the cinema after seeing Deepwater Horizon. Hence, the weepy eyes. I cried buckets, but I highly recommend. Based on the true story of America’s worst oil rig disaster, it is worth seeing. The bravery of the people involved is stunning. Kurt Russell is amazing as the boss with integrity trying to look after his staff & contain the catastrophe. John Malkovich is equally great as the unscrupulous company man. It’s so easy to miss the individual stories in such a devastating event, Deepwater Horizon plugs that information gap perfectly.
Apologies for my sporadic blogging. My body is really trolling me at the moment, which means I’ve had to be really careful how I use my spoons. this post covers a day out from weeks ago. Better late than never, eh?
Ever since the neon went up on The Gallert of Modern Art I have been dying to check out the exhibition of work from Glasgow School of Art. There were some stunning pieces. My particular favourite was this painting by Victoria Morton.
I was also rather fond on the mirrored handbags in this piece.
I can never visit GoMA without taking pictures in the mirrored entrance. I really love this one, even though my Dad appears to have lost his head.
I’ve been searching for the right pinafore type dress for months, finally I found it. I’ll be able to style this piece a million ways, which pleases me. I foresee it being an autumn/winter favourite.
Maxi – Asos Curve
Kimono – Alice & You
We followed up GoMA with lunch, beer & a pedicure. In my book that’s pretty perfect Saturday.
Look how pretty my little tootsies are.
… If only they sold my size. Following in the footsteps of some other plus sized babes, I am sharing what I would have bought. I’ve picked Topshop as their spring/summer collection has some really cool pieces with a 70’s vibe. Alas, I can have none of these beautiful things. Listen up Topshop, if you increased your size range to encompass my lovely fat arse, you would most definitely be raking in even more pennies.
I am genuinely in need of those daisy print cigarette pants. If anyone can point me in the direction of something similar I will be forever grateful.
