A New Look At Savvy Plus Size Shopping

A couple of weeks ago I discovered that my local New Look still had an Inspire section. To be honest I rarely look for clothing on the high street so I just assumed that it would have disappeared when I heard that they had gotten rid of so many. However, I was happily surprised to discover it's still there!

On pay day I popped into do some shopping before work and I am so glad that I did. For starters they had an amazing sale on which meant I came away with 2 dresses, a top and a pair of shoes for £21 - now that's enough to make anyone happy! On top of that, despite the signage saying up to size 26 I picked up a top in a 32 and a dress in a 28. It might sound like such a small thing, but buying affordable clothing in my size ON THE HIGH STREET really did make me very happy!


I managed to pick up this beautiful dress for the 'hefty' price tag of £7! It's a really nice material which clings to my body and gives me a shape that I enjoy. I'm wearing this in a size 28. It's a big clingy so it does ride up a little - hence the wise decision to wear leggings! The shoes were £3 in the New Look sale too - YAY!


Now as you know I am a fan of belts to give me a shape - I couldn't fit a belt I liked so instead I improvised. You can't see it in the photos but around my 'waist' I have the strap of a handbag wrapped around me in a belt style. It's nice and tight so I really like what it does to my body. Before I started really plus size blogs I probably wouldn't have improvised in that way before but I am glad that I did.



I can't find the dress on the website, but they have loads of stuff in their sale so it's well worth a browse. 

What's been your best bargain lately?
