Plus Size White lace Skater Dress by Topsy Curvy-A review

Recently I have had a hankering for everything in white.
As well as getting a white denim jacket (review coming soon) I also plan to decorate my house in white this month and use art for colour. Other than my pink kitchen I just want a fresh start and everything on the pale spectrum calls to me.
A whiter shade of pale

Which is why this plus size white lace skater dress by Topsy Curvy is so perfect.Its so pretty, frothy and yes incredibly girly. White is a high maintenance colour but sometimes sacrifices have to be made for style and I for one don't mind not wiping my greasy fingers on my skirt if it means I get to wear a dress this lovely.

Red, White and Curvy

Until this dress arrived I had started to think the people who made sleeves on plus size frocks had gone on strike but no here they are as plain as the nose on my face, white lace sleeves which have enough stretch in them that my arms don't feel like cling film wrapped sausages.Bravo.Its also a very affordable £25 which as it seems I need to remortgage my house every time I get the shopping urge is also cause for celebration.

A bit of all white

In fact the sizing on this dress is rather good all round (no pun intended but hey take it if you like) this is the size 20 and with its drop waist and bit of stretch is really quite roomy and very comfortable.It features a stretchy lining on the bodice and skirt so whilst you might look slightly see through actually no one can see the colour of your knickers (which are obviously red, matchy matchy from my head to my toes and everything in between) 


 All this  white could feel a little bridal so I have added the shot of red which always goes so well with snow white (eat the apple bitch) with my red jelly wedges which I picked up from Amazon  and this red patent bow belt which actually came with another dress but you can buy similar here My red bag was a gift but you can buy similar here

Red accessories stop this being too white wedding

Weekend Wishlist

Its the weekend, its just been pay day, what does that mean? well in my case it means racing through the world wide web and finding loads of drool worthy clothes in size fat. 

Black and gold metallic thread long sleeved maxi dress Buy Here
I love this dress so much I can't stop looking at it. Simple black with gold thread running through it, its everything I want in a glamorous maxi dress. It isn't over embellished or full of ruching to "hide" my tummy. its a beautiful semi fitted floor length frock that I just know would make me feel like a magnificent bitch. Perfection.

Yes I know I look fabulous


Darling Christina Coat Buy Here
To be honest this coat had me at "Darling Christina" so reminiscent of Faye Dunaway screaming "Christina bring me the axe" in Mommy Dearest, but I digress.If it seems too early to be thinking about coats you may be reading this outside the UK because quite honestly I have been contemplating putting the heating on this week. Everything about this coat is delicious. The appliqué, the big button, the neat collar, its gorgeous and will console me as I don tights in August. 
The coat of dreams
Faux Fur Gillet Buy Here
I already own a pale blue gilet and wear it almost constantly. It simply works with everything, jeans, maxi dresses, T-shirts and leggings  and makes me feel boho and glamorous in an instant. 

And they called it Wookie Love


Giles Deacon Green Dress Buy Here
This dress is just so unbelievably gorgeous. Seeing frocks like this in my size makes me so happy. The cut, the colour, this dress is a work of art and as I am old enough to be an exhibit in a museum its only right and proper it should be exhibited by me on the stage of life (or Tescos)

Green with envy at anyone who owns this



Longline Maxi Cardigan Buy Here
OK so this isn't a "oh my gawd that's awesome" wardrobe choice but by jingo this is going to do  a lot of heavy lifting as we move from summer to autumn. Simply put when its too chilly for bare arms but wearing a coat makes you sweat this will be a life saver.
Ok its a cardi-but trust me it will earn its keep.
Mia Maxi Dress Buy Here
I own quite  a few maxi dresses which are the same fabric and they are beautiful but you can look a bit curtainy in them. Which is why this contrast maxi with its black top and paisley skirt is so cool. Festival chic without leaving the house or having to pee in a field. bravo.

Boho babeliness

AX Paris Maxi Cover Up Buy here
As soon as I saw this I wanted it. Imagine this thrown on in the morning as you did your make up, or worn with a simple vest and leggings for a big old pinch of Abigail's party chic. Its adorable and slightly outrageous. I want it.


I will wear this whilst lying on a chaise cuddling my little dog

Knife Pleat Skirt Buy here
This is just so cute. Ok there is more than a whiff of St Trinnians about it but that's perfectly fine with me. On a more wearable note this would look great with tights and a crisp white shirt.
Pleat me with your love

1 of 1 design slouch top-A review

I have loved the brand 1 of 1 design ever since they sent me a beautiful hand printed foil design slouch top which I wore when I went to meet Tess Munster (read that post here) Their clothing and jewellery is really gorgeous. 
Posing with my truffling companion

All their clothing is handmade and handprinted and their jewellery is made from upcycled materials. Eco chic at its best.
This top is the 1 of 1 pink slouch top and yet again I am in love.
These slouch tops are such a great shape. Slightly fitted in the body but with wide necks and batwing sleeves they work with everything.
I love the shape of this top

I've worn this top with a PU skirt by Asos Curve wide fit kitten heels from New Look  and my Balenciaga City bag

The higher the hair, the closer to god

This is probably my go to look when I want to feel well put together-hair in a big bun, double lashes and kitten heels. It never fails to make me feel chic and sleek (yes these things are possible even in a size 20 body.



1 of 1 design have a special offer for my readers. You can order this top or any other from their slouch top collection for £44 with free postage
 email them at sales@1of1design.co.uk referencing my  blog and your colour and print preferences. These tops are unique and handprinted so a real treat.

How to Entertain Kids on a budget

As lots of you are probably already aware (either because you already have kids of your own or because the roads on the way to work have been so quiet) its the school summer holidays.
Now I'm no mummy blogger. I don't say that in a snotty way I completely identify with wanting to talk about your child endlessly and I can see how sharing that on a blog can be enjoyable, its just that whilst I fully expect my close friends and family to pretend they find my regular updates about my child fascinating I don't expect anyone else to. 
me with Mini Me
Ive never really felt I fit the mould of typical mum. I love my daughter with a passion bordering on pathological but even early on when she was a small baby I found the fact that lots of other mums only wanted to talk about their children to the exclusion of all other topics quite tedious.My own mum has never been like that either so obviously the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. She had me and my siblings but still did a degree in fashion, worked as a fashion designer and owned her own boutique (one of the highlights of my goth teenage years was when the bassist from The Cult wore one of her paisley shirts on Top of the pops) She was also a punk in the seventies going to see everyone from Blondie to The Sex Pistols in Vivienne Westwood bondage trousers,yet she was also home before us every day, baked amazing birthday cakes and was generally "mumsy" albeit in a fairy glam way.
My very stylish Mum sometime in the late 70's
Anyway I digress. What I'm trying to say is I don't often write about the fruit of my loins as I don't imagine anyone gives a crap. However today I thought I would share with you some of the ways I entertain a very bored child on a very low budget. 
I have no doubt that she will grow up needing therapy and hating me for not taking her to Legoland (I will feel I have failed somehow if she doesn't churn out a Mommy Dearest style memoir) but right now she feels she is having the best holiday in the world. Here are the highlights of "Betty Pamper Style entertainment'
Watching the boats-yes that passes as entertainment. Who needs a PlayStation


Puddle Jumping-Who needs Alton Towers when its wet outside. Putting on wellies and allowing my daughter to jump in big wet muddy puddles killed hours. The joy of having permission to be yobby and get wet should not be underestimated.
Puddle Jumping Joy
Capturing Fairies-The fairies were just prints outs of the Cottingly garden fairies stuck on coffee stirrers and planted in the flower beds which we had to find and trap in old jam jars.She is now obsessed with seeing "real" fairies, god forbid if one ever does stumble upon Pamper Towers. She will have it netted and in captivity in a heartbeat.
Slurp
Going to feed the ducks and buy a ice cream. You know despite what the adverts tell you a bag of oats, starving hungry ducks and the promise of an ice cream actually are as exciting to a child as a trip to a "Build A Bear" workshop.About £25 cheaper as well.


Ahoy me hearties
Freebie Museums Can Be Fun. I took my little one to the Liverpool maritime museum convinced she would be bored witless. Whilst she had no interest in much of it she found the old films of people sailing away hilarious and loved the huge anchors and models of boats especially one which was bright pink. I realise she will hate anything at a museum or even slightly educational in a year or so but whilst I can get away with it I'm riding that free admission like a cowgirl at a rodeo.
So those are my tips for entertaining little ones for virtually no money. Thrifty and fun-hell yeah!
