Outfit Post || Pretty in pink

Hello love bugs!

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend? I had a lovely day in Kent with some of my family yesterday, and here's what I wore.
The dress is from AX Paris via Very, and I fell in love with it when I saw it on Tess Holliday (formerly Tess Munster), and then Laura from What Laura Loves wore it and it cemented in mind the idea it HAD to be mine. It's probably the prettiest dress I own.

I'm wearing it with a Simply Be furry shrug I saw on Laura of Tutus and Tiny Hats and knew it would go so well with the dress. Simply Be said it was out of stock and substituted me with this shrug, but I can't see any difference at all!

I had a fit of giggles during the photos because firstly a man across the street stopped to stare like he'd never seen a pretty fat girl in a nice dress, then the next door neighbour came out while I was mid-pose and set me off again.

Excuse my fringe, it was a bit rebellious yesterday!

AX Paris Curve Print Maxi Dress, Very £40
Fluffy shrug, Simply Be £30
Huge glitter hair bow, Crown and Glory (I'm wearing Fairy Dust.) £10
Shoes, FB friend Lauren

I'm wearing a size 26 in the dress. It's very generous in the body, but not so much in the top half. It's a bandeau (no straps) and the elastic which holds it up bothers me a little bit, but anything that digs in in the slightest bothers me because of Fibromyalgia. I wore it all day with a few shifts of position to make me more comfortable. The shrug is a 24/26 as I find anything roomy on my top half makes me look a lot bigger.

I was lucky to buy the dress and shrug with money off. Simply Be had a generous discount code and I think I got the dress when it had 20% off on Very.

The black mesh you can see above the bust on the dress is my bra, which is a Keira by Goddess, if memory serves correctly. I have 3 bras by them and they're fantastic. Proper hardcore underwires for holding up big boobs. I handwash them all and they've lasted over a year so far. Unheard of with underwired bras usually! Oh, and I'm wearing a lipstick from MeMeMe. Their lipsticks are FANTASTIC - deeply pigmented, ridiculously moisturising, they smell gorgeous and they last ages too. It's Hot Magenta. They're £8.50 each and worth every damn penny, and if you sign up to their emails they occasionally send out information about discount codes and sales.

Have one of my face. I love the way my shrug coordinates with the Christmas tree!

Have a great rest of day!

P.S. I'm going to try to get an outfit a day up until Christmas! Stay tuned.
