Show us your plums! OOTD

Posing in purple
At this time of year I start digging out outfits in plum, dark pinks and mauve shades. There is something about autumn which makes me want to move away from pastels and rock a slightly more Princesque look. Its Purple rain all the way here at BB Towers.
Dress from BHS-well I never!
I love to wear purple. Nothing suits dramatic make up more and any colour which was a fave of Liz Taylor is good enough for me.
This dress is an oldie but a goldie. I brought from of all places BHS a few years ago. Hidden on a rail amongst a lot of rather horrible old lady dresses was this little beauty. Its the most gorgeous wiggle dress and even comes with a matching belt. Its so beautifully made and I believe I paid about a tenner for it so was a total bargain.
That smug feeling that only a fab dress costing a tenner can bring!
Ive worn it with a purple cardigan from Monsoon, my lovely Jelly bow shoes and a pink headscarf by Diablo Jo.Ive put my hair in a big victory roll.

Ive also changed my make up slightly. I'm wearing purple and pink shades on my lids which are from a new Technic electric eyes palette I brought from ebay recently. It was only £3.99 and I brought it in error thinking it was the Sleek i-Devine set but I have to say I'm loving the shimmery bright shades. They are very sparkly so I wouldn't wear them all the time but on a dull Autumn morning they are just the ticket.My lipstick is Amped by Sleek.

My necklace is a gold bunny from Accessorize. I love to ring the seasonal changes with my wardrobe. Once Downton Abbey has started and Im wearing a purple cardigan I know Autumn is here!
Autumn is here-so lets make like Liz Taylor

The Details



Remember feeling good and looking great has nothing to do with dress size and everything to do with attitude.Never wait to be a certain weight to start enjoying clothes and never reject anything thinking it wont suit your shape. Try it on-you may be surprised.
