Outfit | Scarlett & Jo black lace dress & polka tights*


When I went to Bluewater on Sunday I bought this lovely dress from Scarlett & Jo. It was down to £25 at the time which is an absolute steal. I love neutrals because you can dress them up or down in any number of ways and accessorise as much or as little as you like. I was in two minds how to wear this - femininely like this, or with skateboard shoes and a denim shirt.

Excuse my hair. I'm running a temperature and I just wanted it off my face. I think I'm coming down with something....arrrgggh.

I'm not getting out to take outfit photos in pretty places at the moment as we're just so busy, and it's only going to get more frantic. My family are staying for 5 days from today, then it's Rach's hen do this Saturday (which is an all day event), various hair trials and wedding rehearsals, picking up my finished bridesmaids dress,  and the wedding itself is next Saturday. I'm stressing out, especially as my health is really suffering at the moment.

Onto the dress - I'm wearing a size 28 and it fits like a glove. The lace sleeves are very stretchy and are made of a soft lace. I can't stand rough lace, it makes me itch. The length is great on me - long enough to wear without leggings, and it doesn't ride up at the back as the length takes into account the larger lady's sometime tendency to have a big ol' bum shelf. I do, at least. :)

I'm wearing some tights which were sent to me by MyTights. I'm wearing an XXL which fits up to a size 32, and they're true to size. I have to size up in tights as my bum, tum and thighs are the biggest part of me. They're 20 denier, so they are very fine. I'm always careful to take my rings off before I put thin tights on. I love the cute polka dots. These are special occasion tights at ten pounds a pair, make no mistake, but they'd be super cute for a wedding or other such smartly dressed occasion.
