Penelope Poppy from Simply Be: OOTD

It was so windy when we shot this it blew my false eyelash slightly off. Grrr
So last week I began my "I insist its spring" challenge. Sick to death of dressing to "wrap up warm" I decided I needed a shot of wardrobe UV-I had the sartorial SADS as it were. 
Having defiantly stated I was also ditching the tights unless there was snow on the ground, well there actually is snow on the ground today so reluctantly the tights are back but the frock I'm sure you will agree, is a breath of spring air if ever there was one.
I'm still feeling springy  despite the snow on the ground

Simply be very kindly sent me a few items to kick start my spring wardrobe  including this dress and its an absolute corker.
The Bespoke Penelope Poppy dress ticks all my frock boxes. It has a beautiful square neckline (so flattering for ladies with big bazoomers) is fitted enough to cling in all the right places without making my pot belly too much of a feature, and it is just so darn pretty! 
This dress demands showtunes
I want to run up hills singing about raindrops and kittens or ride a bike with a Miss Marple basket on the front full of tulips-I wont do any of these things as I have to go to the supermarket and collect my child from school but you get the gist, its a mood creator.
Ive worn this with a cardigan from Peacocks (oh Peacocks I miss you) and a lovely little wicker picnic  basket style handbag I brought from Primarni last summer.
It wont fit my sandwiches in but this bag  is still a wicker wonder

All ladies should occasionally have a hair do that looks like a dinner plate
As this dress is so feminine I felt I wanted a real lady head "hair do" so have used a huge bun ring to create a top knot of epic proportions-its like a dinner plate and I like it- a lot. Ive clipped a little flower in and I'm ready to go.

Take that Artic winds

I'm wearing my new fave eyelashes by Ardell and my lipstick is shade Naughty by Beauty UK.
I'm feeling bright, breezy and have even started thinking about Easter display ideas. This dressing to change your mood malarkey definitely works.
Lipstick shade "naughty" mood upbeat

Never let your size or shape stop you from loving fashion and enjoying clothes to the max. If you "own" your style and stop feeling apologetic because you are plus size the world of clothes really starts to open up and its a wonderful thing.So get some sass to go with your fat ass!

  1. Beauuuutiful dress on a beauuuuutiful lady! xxx

  2. Beautiful dress! Infact, beautiful outfit! I love every little last detail. That straw bag is so cute. Oh, and Peacocks still have a few shops dotted around the country... there's one still open in Oxford!

  3. I think it may be just a tad too cold here on the Scottish coast for summer frocks just yet :) I really love poppy prints, that is a lovely dress. I wish Simply Be would send me a dress to review, I have been eyeing up 'Joe Browns Summer Meadow Dress' lol
    I have just tried a Sleek True Colour Lipstick for the first time (shade Vixen), they are amazing I was totally impressed, it lasted all day, Beauty UK is good value for money though.

  4. You look gorgeous! And ready for spring :)

  5. Hi! I recently discovered your blog and I LOVE it and I ADORE you! You are funny, talented, and beautiful! I'm 36 this year and have finally started accepting my body! 4 years from 40, doing good right?? ;-) Great tips! Thank you for being such an awesome inspiration!

  6. My goodness gracious, do you look incredible! That dress is nothing short of resplendently pretty (the world needs more poppy covered frocks, if you ask me!) and truly rocks on you.

    Wishing you a fantastic St. Patrick's Day!
    ♥ Jessica

  7. Oh my *swoons* that dress is to die for!
