Animal Print Perfection from Yours Clothing: OOTD

Yes its animal print-I know I have a problem

Having never shopped at Yours Clothing until a few months ago I have totally fallen in love with their very wearable and affordable collection.
This seemingly never ending freezing weather means I'm getting quite bored of all my winter stuff so have been adding a few extra pieces which will see me through once the weather gets warmer.This frock is perfect as once the sun starts to shine it will look great with footless tights and a short sleeved cardigan.

I realise I really should just "get over" animal print but what can I tell you, the heart wants what the heart wants and when I saw this animal print dress for £35 I had to get it.
Despite being snow leopard print it actually isn't too crazy and feels low key enough to wear in the day for the school run or the supermarket without screaming  "I'm a Bet Lynch wannabee" 
These pictures were taken last Saturday when the snow was at its thickest and it was absolutely freezing. I'm about to teach at a Vintage pamper day at Telfords Warehouse in Chester hence the shots against the leopard print photo background (where I'm almost disappearing)

Exposed brick-very urban
Its the cardigan under the boob look again
The dress has got an elasticated waist which nips it in slightly and a nice pleated effect down the front. I'm always slightly cautious of quite high round necks as they can make me look like I have a shelf of boob but I've created a bit more shape by knotting my cardigan so it breaks the print up a bit (I always use this trick to avoid the dreaded curtain effect that can happen when big boobs and a loud pattern meet-take this tip I gift it to you)

Hot pink lips-I think so
Looking to a future when I can pass up a dress in leopard print

I've put this slice of animal print yuminess with a plain cardigan from primark, thick tights and my Tuk creepers (as an aside someone found my blog recently using the search tag "fat girl in creepers" hello beautiful stranger, see we do exist)
Ive worn my hair in a mega bun with a leopard print hello Kitty headband and I'm sporting my usual lashings of black eyeliner (soap and glory) false eyelashes (Ardell) and Barry M lip paint (shade 62) I'm calling this look "tart with a heart" it makes me feel fabulous.
This dress will definitely earn its keep

I think this dress will become a real "go to" item' in my wardrobe and one I wear again and again.I do promise this will be my last bit of animal print for a while though, I feel I've been neglecting polka dots...
Ive said it before and I will say it again. Never let your size or shape stop you loving clothes and feeling fabulous. Let go of the body hate, give yourself a great big pom pom filled cheer and wear whatever the hell you like. You will rock it and if this bothers anyone tell them to kiss your big fat ass!
