Orange Is The New fat: Neon and black 2 in 1 dress from Simply Be

Tangerine Dream
I picked up this neon and black 2 n 1 dress  £38 from Simply be when I recently visited their Liverpool store.
how it looks on the website

I was initially slightly unsure as its one of those dresses which has a top layer attached to the bottom one. I always get myself into a bit of  a pickle when I buy these kind of garments as my ridiculously big hair tends to get stuck in them but I liked the pop of neon orange and waffle fabric so much I persevered and I have worn it loads.

For an eighties inspired neon orange dress this has had a surprisingly lot of wear

When I wore it at the simply be store visit I put it with heels and a clutch bag for a bit of a sophisticated look but honestly I have worn this mostly in the day to walk the dog and just relax in as its incredibly comfortable.

The bottom half of the dress is black stretchy material and whilst being fairly fitted it isn't skin tight. It ends just a little below the knee and if I could have my way I would have made it slightly longer for a more Bjork/90s indie length but if wishes were horses fat chicks would ride.

Excuse the graphic shot of Mister Truffles bumhole
The cut on this is very generous. Im wearing a size 20 and could easily have sized down.

My perfectly normal looking ankles

I've worn it with my catwalk collection gladiator sandles £25 also by Simply be. These are ticking all my new romantic 80's boxes and as they come in a wider fit my fat little trotters are very comfortable indeed. 
I wanted to wear these to showcase my ankles as a horrible hate thread dedicated to a picture of me in my running gear on Reddit this week contained someone saying I had horrible ankles. I will have you know I have lovely ankles. Its such a Victorian thing to be trolled on isn't it"you good lady have gouty looking ankles and I bid you goodnight. 
I remember Robbie Williams rather ungallantly describing the beautiful Sophie Ellis Bextor as having "ankles like your Nan" so its good to know I'm in good company for the chunky ankle hate.

Accessories which double up as weapons-standard

I've worn this rather fabulous silver feather necklace which I picked up at Miss Selfridge in their recent sale. I rather like the fact it looks like it could also double up as an offensive weapon "what did you say about my ankles?" Voucher Giveaway
