I've got 99 problems, but a dress ain't one!

Readers, I have a confession. 

I really think I have some sort of mental block when it comes to dresses. I forget what I have, what I need, and just buy buy buy them!

I get paid on the 21st of the month. It is spent usually within about 4 days on dresses. 

I then sell on eBay what I'm bored of (yes, BORED), or what doesn't quite fit (Hellooooooo new bra size!). 

But recently, I don't know what has come over me!

 


New Look Inspire dress (£12.99) - will be worn with black jeans. But it is purple, so that is all that matters on that one! I'd like to a try a belt and some shapewear to see if it adds anything to the dress!



Lady Vintage London Plus Size dress - it came with a belt, but I fancied something a little more flowing and 'cooler' in terms of temperature! It was perfect for the office. I wore it with my trusty Sainsburys leggings and my new Excite Clothing shrug from eBay. 




I bought this wiggle dress from a friend for £30, and thought that as it was a US 18, it would fit me.

I've deleted the photos I took of it as it was just not a look I was comfortable with! I'm now selling this for the same price. 



This dress has my heart-a-flutter! It is the ASOS Curve dress, which I took a chance on and bought a 20 to try. 

It is a bright bright orange as the background colour, and the neckline is see through threaded lace effect. 

The buttons don't seem to gape, and I've worn it with a brown leather belt as a test to cinch the waist a little. I'm thinking my trusty black nurses belt as there are too many colours in the dress to try to pick out one with the belt.

This I would wear bare legged as it sits below my knee. If this temperature keeps up I'll be wearing it tomorrow at this rate!

Much love my lovelies,
