Something Borrowed

So yesterday I had my work Summer Conference. We have one every year and it's a great excuse to get dressed up! However, this year I was hugely flapping about what to wear until the INCREDIBLE Elena (my fat soul sister) from Frivolous Mrs D ( offered to lend me one of her glorious dresses! 

Dress - Nicolette Mason for Modcloth, Shoes - Sole Diva for Simply Be, Clutch - Primark.

THIS DRESS!!! Look at it. Behold it's divinity. Elena wore this dress to the British Plus Size Awards last year and when she offered to lend it to me, I almost had a heart attack. Everything about this dress is perfection. The material is soft, beautiful quality and falls wonderfully, it nips in perfectly at the waist, the little capped sleeves are exactly what you need if you are not too confident with your upper arms and above all it makes you feel like a glamorous, vintage princess! Sadly it is no longer available as it was part of a limited edition collection by Nicolette Mason, so that makes me even more thankful to have gotten the opportunity to wear it! 

I grabbed these shoes from Sole Diva for Simply Be and honestly, they're great. I am truly appalling in heels, my feet get sore after 5 minutes, but with the little kitten heel and the wide fit - these were a great compromise. Also, you know me, I love a cheeky bit of leopard print! These shoes do come in several different colours and two different width fittings so there is something for everyone available! 

To finish, here is a picture of me and my beautiful work chum R Kelley. In a sea of slender, tanned ladies - we were killing it for the pale and pleasantly plump!

Lots Of Love,


  1. You rocked the look, as always! May I ask what it is you do for work? Xx
