ASOS Lace Skirt - Two's Company

A few weeks ago this skirt popped up on ASOS at a price of just £13 - how was I supposed to resist this?

I wore this for dinner and drinks out on Sunday afternoon in London, after a heavy night out in London the night before (School disco party at Club Indulge was never going to be pretty). I teamed it up with a plain black cami top (also from ASOS), a grey kimono (New Look) and a pink heart shaped bag (from New Look).




It was a bit windy when I took the pics so you'll have to excuse the windswept look, but it gives you an idea of just how pretty the skirt is! It is a little outside of my comfort zone of what I would usually buy but I am really glad that I bought it - it's so pretty!




Dinner at Grill Shack and Yates cocktails - no better way to spend a hungover Sunday afternoon!

Lucia from U Can't Wear That bought the skirt too! 




As you can see she looks brill in it - read her review here


What sale bargains have you grabbed lately?

Clothes That Strictly Have The X Factor!

WOW. Do I Get An award for the worst headline ever?? Probably!

Anyway, after a busy few weekends and another weekend away next weekend I thought I should have a quiet one this weekend - and actually I am quite enjoying! I had a beaut of a curry with my family earlier and now I am watching Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor is to follow!

Often when I am watching TV I find myself online window shopping and lusting over items that I can't afford or might buy in the future! To be honest this gets bigger and bigger each week, there's just so many pretty items out there!

So... I thought I would share with you some of the items I am lusting over at the moment!

Black And Pink Floral Print Midi Dress With Mesh Insert From Yours Clothing



I know it's not a very wintery pattern or colour but I really love this dress! It's in the sale for £22 at the minute too which is a bit of a bargain!

Exclusive Swing Dress In Pineapple Print by ASOS Curve



I haven't had massses of luck with swing dresses but I am determined to try them  more. I really love this unusual print and colouring.

Baby Doll Checked Dress by Simply Be




I have lusted over this baby doll check dress ever since I spotted it at Style XL! It's currently in the Simply Be sale so I would probably snap it up before it goes!

Do You Want Curves With That By Nicky Rockets




Nicky Rockets has a whole number of really funky, curvy character based t-shirts and this is my fave! I've held off so far because I am not sure how it will fit, but I do need to buy one of these at some point!

Dancing Lady Necklace




Something a little different, but this Dancing Lady Necklace from the team over at Black Heart Creatives could not be more perfect!

So there you have it, 5 items that are well and truly on my wishlist at the moment! What are you lusting after?

Happy Birthday To Me!

While I was in London I celebrated my birthday by having dinner with friends in Wahaca in Angel - which was amazing and lovely!



I wore an ASOS dress which has fast become one of my favourites. Unfortunately I was too busy having a good time and drinking passion fruit mojiotos to take any proper outfit pictures, but here are a couple I took of the night and a quick, cheeky bathroom selfie so you can see a bit of the dress.



It is the same dress I blogged here, except it is in a different pattern. I love the dress & the fit though, I really can't recommend it enough!

In other news I have been using a hair treatment on my hair and it's really improved the condition of it. The lovely team over at Old Wives Tail sent it to me a few weeks ago and I really love the conditioner makes my hair feel. I have to admit to being quite lazy when it comes to hair products etc. so I never want to use anything that is too fiddly. 




I've been putting their Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment on wet hair and then washing it out an hour or so later. It is quite tricky to wash out because it's oil based but it's well worth it for the shine and feel of my hair afterwards. They actually stock a range of products for hair, so it's worth seeing what they have to suit you. I was lucky enough to be gifted the item (but my opinion is still honest) but their prices seem pretty reasonable anyway!

Double Floral Pattern - Cute as a Bunny

I am just back from spending a long weekend in London, and it was brilliant! I wore some lovely new outfits, so expect some outfit posts coming up over the next few days.



On my actual birthday I headed into Soho to a new eating place there called Bunny Chow. The actual venue isn't open yet, but they're doing some sneak previews and trials and invited me down to sample their goods with Lucia from U Can't Wear That and boy, I am glad that I went!

Bunny Chow is a type of food that takes its inspiration from South Africa. They have a range of food items on their menu, which are served in a bread roll - YUM! I went for the haddock in a white sauce choice and it was delicious... not only is the food nice, but you get to eat your bowl afterwards so no washing up for anyone - WOOP! 



They do desserts of fruit salads inside an apple too, genius!




Back To The Outfit

A few days before I left for London ASOS announced a flash sale of 20% off full price items and I for one can't resist a bargain. I went for this mixed floral printer skater dress which was just £20 and I am so glad that I did. 



Bag - New Look via ASOS Curve
Shoes - Primark (old stock)


The skater dress is a lovely fit and the perfect length for me (it would be great for taller people too as I wear the waist of the dress quite high). I love the idea of the two different patterns and the sleeves are a great length too! The Tuesday in London was a lovely sunny day and it was amazing to feel a bit of sunshine for once!



Me outside Bunny Chow with a lovely lemon muffin they sent me home with - YUM!

Have you bought from ASOS lately? What bargain did you snap up?

As Seen On Someone - A Look at ASOS Curve

I don't know if it is just me, but I really feel like ASOS Curve is killing it at the moment. What I like about browsing the range of clothes at ASOS Curve is that it always feels like there is a selection of outfit types... like they're a plus size retailer that actually recognises people like different things. From skater and swing dresses to over sized t shirts and bodycon dresses there is all sorts!

I have bought a few items from ASOS over the last few weeks, some of which I haven't worn yet and some of which I just haven't photographed yet. New additions to my own personal ASOS Curve collection include



I love a bit of floral and I think that ASOS do these patterns so well!

I am off to London this weekend and all of these items are in my suitcase, so I will finally have some photos to show you. In the mean time - here's some amazing bloggers looking great in their ASOS outfits for my As Seen on Someone feature (clever eh?)

Hannah from fhttp://fabulouslyfatfashion.com/ looking brill in her ASOS jeans




Miss Kathryn from MissKathrynsMistakes in a beautiful sunflower dress (I regret not buying this)


Mrs Bebe in looking great in ASOS jeans and shirt and some ASOS dungarees


Laura from Laura on Life in an oversize graffiti print dress from ASOS



Lucia from U Can't Wear That in a paisley print dress & a squiggle print dress



Big Fat Betty in her ASOS outfit



Leah from Just Me Leah in a lovely ASOS strapless dress


A bit of smock dress loveliness from Natty Nikki!




Last but not least, Pink Gemma




Of course, I've worn the odd bit of ASOS in the past too ;)




Have you tried ASOS yet? Did you like it?

Fallen in Love!

Ahhhh I am in love and I want to shout it from the rooftops! In fact if you follow me on any social media forums then the chances are that you have heard about my love affair already!

This dress... LOOK AT IT!!!! Have you ever seen anything SO pretty?? I can't really blog about it too much because it's now out of stock on ASOS, but it is BEAUTIFUL!! I really love what ASOS are doing at the moment - there are so many Curve dresses that I have my beady eyes on!



I wore this dress to the Style XL event in Leicester a few weeks ago. This was a Midlands based plus size fashion show put on by Leah and it was a brilliant day! It was lovely to see so many of the brands getting involved, plus size bloggers strutting their stuff in next seasons fashion offerings and of course geting to catch up with everyone! 




There are lots of blog posts about the event around so make sure you give them a read - as usual I was too busy having fun(*read eating cupcakes) to take photos so I don't have much to share at all. Leah announced that she plans to do the event again next year, so that is well worth keeping an eye out for.



What are you loving at the moment?

OOTD : British Plus Size Fashion Weekend

Just a very quick post today - a look at what I wore to British Plus Size Fashion Weekend. I am a little bit bored of normal dresses and leggings at the moment - just because that is all I seem to wear! So I am trying to break out and wear something a little different - BPSFW was my first time doing this!



Jumper - Matalan - this is about 3 years old and this is the first time I have worn it!
Skater dress - ASOS
Sweet leggings - Primark
Boots - Primark

Debz necklace - Black Heart Creatives
Heart necklace - Primark


There really isn't much that I can say about these leggings, except that I love them!! They're from Primark, a size 16 and a bargain price of £6.00! Yet another lesson that you can pick up bargain clothes just about wherever, as long as you ignore clothes sizes!




Do you have funky, unique clothes in your wardrobe?

Not So Mini Mouse

Yes... The typo is on purpose! I know, I am THAT funny!

Just a very quick post today on a lovely polka dot dress I picked up in the ASOS Sale. It's currently only £13, bargain! (It seems to be out of stock upon checking, but they have the lovely navy one for only £22! http://www.asos.com/ASOS-Curve/ASOS-CURVE-Exclusive-Skater-Dress-In-Spot-Print/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2995287&WT.ac=rec_viewed)



I love the skater dress because it is a longer length - although I have tucked it up under the belt because I wanted it to be a bit shorter for the night out I was going on. I love the versatility. Teamed it up with a black belt that I picked up at the Plus London Plus Size Market for the grand old price of 50p!



I managed to do the whole of Saturday night out sober... partying and dancing til 3am. I was quite proud of myself - Dryathlon/Cancer Research you should be too! http://www.justgiving.com/Debbie-Aiken-dryathlete

If you're looking for a dress or two for a bargain price, I really can't recommend the ASOS sale enough at the moment.

Have you bought anything?

Big Bird - My ASOS Curve Sale Bargain!

I have to admit being a fan of a sale - I mean, when you can get a dress at a bargain price - why not!? Just before Christmas ASOS announced a massive up to 50% off and I could have wept - who wants to be bargain dress shopping before Christmas?

Anyway - two dresses caught my eye and so I had to have them - which at a total of £22 for 2 dresses delivered was amazing! I got my hands on this brill bird print dress & a lovely polka dot one, which no doubt I'll write about in the future too!



I wore it out the other day teamed up with a stretchy belt, New Look Jacket, One One Three Leggings and a New Look lion necklace (which was another sale bargain at £2!)



I found the dress to be a very generous fit and I love the pattern - which is pretty but also plain, so can be dressed up in anyway you want. It's also elasticated under the bust, which helps to give it a lovely shape and be nice and flattering, for want of a better word!

What sale bargains have you snapped up?

You can grab this ASOS dress at http://www.asos.com/ASOS-Curve/ASOS-CURVE-Skater-Dress-In-Bird-Print/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3118890&SearchQuery=bird%20print&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=3&clr=Print for just £13!

Loving Lovedrobe

I have wanted to try Lovedrobe for a while now, but it is something that I just haven't ever gotten around to!

A few weeks ago I managed to get my hands on their Purple Pu Trim Scuba Dress - and it's love!


The dress goes up to a size 26, which I know would get some people worrying about how it will fit them. However, as you can see from the photos - it fits me just fine!



Sorry about the poor quality - I had no one to take them for me, so I am using my trusty phone!

The dress is quite short on me (probably because of the sizing) but teamed with leggings it is more than fine! I love the shape of the dress & think it is quite flattering. What I love about it is the PU trim, which brightens the whole dress up for me - you know, I usually go for much brighter colours and patterns.

I was lucky enough to be invited to an ASOS Christmas event last week, so I wore this outfit there  - and it was perfect! Even Santa liked it! ;)



Seeing as it's winter and a wee bit chilly out there, the dress needed something more to keep me nice and toasty. I teamed it up with some grey wooly boots and this New Look leather jacket, which I believe is currently reduced in the sale!



So there you have it - another plus size brand tried & tested. I would like to try move of their products, especially in my size but this dress has definitely peaked my interest in the brand!

What brands would you love to try that you haven't quite gotten around to yet?

Lady in Red

I have had this red dress from ASOS Curve in my wardrobe for a while, but haven't had a chance to wear it. This weekend I decided to be a lady in red for the Plus London After Dark Party and then my trip to BGP in the evening. I wore it with leggings (surpisingly I know!) and some sparkly silver shoes. I loved the fit of the top and enjoyed wearing it.





The 'lovely' necklace gets SO many comments, it's a Primark bargain and I am so glad I picked up it when I saw it a few months ago!

I don't often wear red, so it was a nice change for me - what colour do you like to wear?

Access All ASOS - An Exciting New Adventure

A few weeks ago my flat mate sent me a link to a website called 'Access All ASOS' which invited people to apply to be an ASOS Insider. Once I read the first few paragraphs on the page, I knew I had to apply!

"Do you heart ASOS? Have you ever wanted to know what happens behind the scenes of your favourite fashion giant? Well, we have some pretty exciting news! We’re about to throw open our doors to let you see all the crazy goings on at Planet ASOS… and you can be a part of it all, too. #AccessAllASOS is an exciting new destination for our most loyal fans, where you’ll get unprecedented access to all things ASOS. As an ASOS insider, you’ll be the first to know about our new collections, inspirations and adventures. You’ll get opportunities to visit ASOS HQ in London, as well as invites to our most exciting events. You’ll be able to really get under our skin and learn how we do what we do. There might even be the odd freebie or exclusive discount…So if you’re passionate about ASOS, step right up!"

How could I resist? So, I sent about filling in my application form! I wasn't sure how successful I would be, because I assumed they would mainly be looking for people who shopped from their main ASOS range, which of course I don't. However I filled in the form telling them about my new found love for ASOS Curve, and why I am so passionate about brands just like them!

And then a few days ago - this amazing package of lovelyness arrived! I can not tell you how excited I was to be an ASOS Insider! 



I have since had a nosey on the #AccessallASOS hashtag on twitter and I have to applaud ASOS. All the people who applied got different gifts, thoughtful and well matched - as well as a lovely handwritten note to welcome them to the team!



I am part of the very first bunch of ASOS Insiders, so I have no idea what the future holds - but how exciting! I think there is nothing better than a brand who listen to their customers and interact with them and it sounds like that is exactly what ASOS Insiders is all about, so I am keen to see what it brings!

Applications for 2013 are closed, but you can go on their site and apply for 2014 - how exciting!

What would you like to see brands doing more of?

OOTD: Leather Biker Jacket & ASOS Wrap Top

I know, I know - what a lovely, imaginative title - you lucky bunch! My creative juices are really flowing this morning, can you tell?

Anyway, I finally got around to wearing this lovely purple wrap dress that I got from ASOS for my birthday (thanks Gem!) and thought I should blog about it! - It's also now only £15.00 in the sale - bargain!





I teamed it with leggings (obviously!) and then to leave the house I wore my New Look biker jacket and a pretty cake scarf which I also got for my birthday!



As always I am loving my accessories - I teamed this outfit up with my new Black Heart Creatives necklace (Thanks Leighanne) and a long, heart necklace from Primark!




I am notoriously bad for wrapping up warm for winter - I hate layers and wearing too many heavy clothes so generally I don't wrap up at all! This is the first coat (jacket!) I have owned in years. That said, I do love the look and the fit of the jacket so I don't see any reason why I wouldn't carry on wearing it for winter - seeing as it's freezing already, I think we're in for a cold one!




Have you bought anything new for your winter wardrobe?
