Louis, of course, decided to help out. Unlike Tonka, he is very cat like and thinks boxes are the best things ever. Especially when he can chew on them, as evidenced above. He doesn’t care about fashion, but he loves the packaging it comes in!
When River Island announced it was launching a plus size section, I was super excited. I’d seen many straight sized bloggers I follow wear their clothing and I always noticed it was on trend and reasonably priced. I had my fingers crossed that this would also pass over to their plus line, and I’m happy to say, it has!
When I first spied this dress, it was love at first sight. I was a little sure about ordering it as I don’t often wear bodycon, but I threw caution to the wind, and I’m glad I did. As you can see, in bright light it does show off a little VBO, but i’m okay with that. I’m also not wearing any shapewear, so if VBO is a concern to you, you can try that if it makes you more comfortable.
I decided to try and ‘dress down’ this dress and have shown you how I would wear it as an everyday item. Of course, you could dress it up for a night out, but I kind of like it with the sneakers and statement necklace. You could even throw on a Bomber Jacket for an even more street style look.
The quality of the dress is amazing, the inner layer is connected to the dress by small ties, and the outer mesh layer is thick and sturdy. I think it’s well worth the $70au. Shipping is $2o, so I’d recommend you buy a few things at once or share an order with a friend.
A couple of months ago, my friend Anne (Who I know as Kayley) took me to a roller rink where I tried out skating (on skates) for the first time in probably 15 years. Let me tell you, it’s NOT like riding a bike. I managed to do a lap and a half, pretty much clinging to the wall, before calling it quits.
This time around, I decided to go with blades, as that was what I used to use (& I kept going to break using the heel). Sucess. I managed more laps this time & without touching the wall at all! But mostly, I hung around and helped out the event.
They had one of those ‘old school’ candy guessing games, where there is a glass jar filled with lollies and you had to guess how many were in there. I think primary school was the last time I’d seen one of those! They had a planking competition, which was pretty amazing! The kids did so much better than I expected!
They had a raffle with LOTS of prizes, I won, and of course, this was my prize (below). I feel like Twilight is haunting me. I will never ever escape it! (If you don’t know why, read here). Excited about the Sapphires DVD though!
I’m loving my new phone, the nexus 6P Huawei. All these pictures (& video) were taken on it. I loved the panorama and slow-mo options!
Thanks so much to Skaterz & Diamond Valley Roller Derby Club for such an amazing night!
