A Sequin Surprise - The Fat Mermaid!

You probably know by now, when it comes to clothes - I love colour, I love shape and I love sparkles. When I first saw this dress on the Fashion World website, I loved it. It is everything perfect about a dress for the Christmas season - I was well and truly smitten! 

It seemed like the rest of the fatshion world was too - as blog posts, tweets and Instagram posts came flooding in about the 'mermaid dress' and everyone was in love with it! 

A few weeks later, Fashion World contacted me and kindly offered to send me a dress of my choosing from their Christmas party dress range. I browsed through and there were some LOVELY offerings, but nothing that quite matched up to the mermaid dress that I had been lusting over! 

So.... I asked them to send me it - and I can tell you now, I was not disappointed!

Yes, the dress is bodycon, yes its covered in sequins which make a sound every time I move, yes it's green, yes it's short - but it is love!

I plan to wear the dress to a Christmas party, so I don't want to share photos of the whole dress just yet. So instead, here are some selfie photos of it - so you can see how happy I am with it! When it is styled properly, for the party in a couple of weeks I'll take some proper Outfit Of The Day posts so you can see the full thing.

They didn't have my size of dress, so I have sized down. This means it is a little shorter than on the models in the photo - but I don't mind that! It is quite tight (more than likely because of the sizing down) but it is fully lined and made from a thick material, which means it gives a nice shape rather than just clinging everywhere, which I know lots of people aren't keen on! 

If you're looking for a Christmas dress to make you stand out this Christmas, I can not recommend this dress enough!! You can buy the AX Paris dress here.

Have you have any exciting purchases for the festive season?

I was lucky enough to be gifted some items in this post and I am very grateful, but I am always open and honest in my reviews!

A Little Bit Of Sparkle

Over the last few weeks I have been searching for Christmas dresses. Not just for me, but in general. I love summer for all of its bright colours, I am not a fan of Autumn browns and dull colours but then Christmas comes and suddenly it's all glitz, glamour and sparkle - and I love it!

I was over the moon when the team at Yours Clothing* gave me the chance to try one of their new dresses and choose this dress, simply because of the little bit of sparkle and sequins it has... I have a proper love affair going on with sequins at the moment!

Red And Black Short Sleeve Lace 2 In 1 Dress

The sparkle and sequins don't show up massively well in the photo, but I can assure you that they do look sparkly - but also not too over the top for people are worried about having TOO much sparkle (if there is such a thing!)

I wore the dress out at the weekend, to meet a group of friends for a night out. As soon as I arrived they all told me that they loved what I was wearing and that 'why hadnt I worn it before?'. None of them knew it was a gifted item and none of them would give compliments if they didn't mean it - so I knew it was a good item! You can buy the item here.

I got my usual size and found it very generous. I could easily have sized down one size, possibly two if i didnt mind it being a bit more fitted. That said, I love the size because its nice and comfy to wear and the length is good (I wore it with leggings but I oculd have gone iwthout them if it wasn't so cold).

I didn't have anyone to take my photos this weekend, so plesse excuse the mirror photos - but you'll get an idea of what it looks like.

And a little bit drunker, less posy photo... just for good measure!

The only problem with this dress? That it's available in teal which I'll need to buy too!

What sparkles do you have for this Christmas? Send me your links, I can never have enough sparkle!
