Call Me

This is another Modcloth dress and you may have seen it on Chloe in my Plus North photos. It is such a fun print and I love the collar. I wore this to show what I would be wearing on my little family holiday to a caravan at Ingoldmells last week. 

The bag is like a timewarp back to my childhood when I had every colour of these bags and the shoes to match. This one is by SunJellies who have been around since 1946! It was perfect for carting around all Franklins toys and bits.  










Dress - Modcloth You Called It size 4x $28.99

Goonie For Life

I have a few pieces by Bete Noire including my custom red double heart necklace that says "Frankie Baby" and I had thought about getting a Goonies inspired necklace for some time. I sent Bete a few reference pictures and came up with this idea. I have to say it turned out even more awesome than I thought it could be! The first heart based on the design of Chunks Hawaiian shirt, the second with the treasure map detail. The Copper Bones Skull Key on the bottom and a pearl necklace like the one Mouth hides in his mouth but Mama Fratelli finds and pulls out.

Bete does the best custom orders! I have seen a Back To The Future, Clueless, True Romance and lots of others. Check out her Instagram for photos!

Green Thang!


Well here is something rather special for you all. I love me some sequins and loved all the Mermaid sequin dresses that were available last year but sadly missed out on one. To my complete delight the new Claire Richards range for Fashion World featured this beauty! This Mermaid shall go to the Under The Sea Dance! 

The dress has a lovely wide v-neck and back. The longer sleeves and length are a nice touch for this winter wonder. There is a slight stretch to the fabric and lining and has no zip so it is a slip over the head affair which I love.

This dress does not need anything fancy added to make it shine but I went all out BLING and added my FollowRayOnline necklace. For a bit of fun I added my Hamburger clutch and vintage cateye glasses.

Fluff & Flowers

With so many lovely summer items in the sales and filling our wardrobes it is easy to Winter them up with a cardigan to keep the wind and chill at bay! I bought this beautiful dress I had been coveting for a while in the Yours Clothing sale and got this amazing super soft and fluffy eyelash knit cardi in Burgundy (available in 4 colour choices) and think it is a great Autumn/Winter outfit! I love a skater dress. 
I decided to size up in the cardi to a 30/32 for an oversized look and to allow for shrinkage in the wash. The cardi has pockets and is a good longer length to keep the bum warm. The colour was what caught my eye as I love an eyelash knit for its snug and cozy warmth. I basically live in these cardigans all winter. They dont have the scratchy itch of normal cardigans so its a win win.

Plus North 2014 - Sunday Swap



Sunday was Clothes Swap day. It was a lovely sunny and warm day in Leeds and I wore this flower print dress I got from Modcloth in a recent sale (sold out) 






My view from The Travelodge hotel room.




A great photo from Curvy Kate of the eveyone at the Swap.


I have been having major bra problems and have been living with only one good bra for well over a month now! I got fitted by the lovely ladies at the Curvy Kate stall and found out I can actually get bras from them and I am a 42K in their brand. Sadly they had sold out on the Saturday of my size and Simply Be website has too. I am waiting for a new one to become available so I can buy 10! hahaha!

I realise I have not said anything about the brands in these posts and having no photos of the day has made if difficult but I have been impressed by the coverage of the Event by BGP Magazine so urge you to read their 3 posts on the days events!

My Top 10 Bling


In my last post I wore this beautiful necklace from FollowRayOnline and wanted to share with you my top 10 picks from the range since there are so many beauties to choose from or collect!


I went for this necklace as it has lots of different colours and figured it would look fab with most things in my wardrobe. These are such great items to add to a plain outfit to give it that something special look. They are also just as fabulous with a sparkle number and with so much bling for you money how can you say no! With necklaces starting from as little as £7.99 these really are something special. There are so many styles and something to suit everyone. These would make the perfect gift for someone too.

Plus North 2014 - Saturday Night




This is my Plus North evening outfit recreated as the lighting was not that great for photos at the venue or my phone was just being rubbish. I got this dress after Christmas in the Simply Be sale and this was its first outing! I knew I wanted to keep it for something special and Plus North is VERY SPECIAL!!! I was given this AMAZING necklace by FollowRayOnline. They have an incredible range of sparkle and bling necklaces! Another Post to follow just about these necklaces! I chose this one because it has so many colours and would go with any other accessories I chose for an outfit. It is a true statement necklace and just what I wanted for this outfit.







These were my accessories for this outfit. I went with the pink but could have easily went with any other colour thanks to the necklace. I wore my iclickoptical glasses (Just enter iclick10lolly at checkout for a 10% discount!) and New Look donut clutch bag.



This is the necklace as described on the FollowRayOnline website.
