This Pom Pom Dress £39.00, is perfect for wearing when it’s hot outside because it’s made from a really light and airy material!

The first pair I ever bought were from Simply Be and pretty much all of my jean collection is made up of jeans from them. What I love about their range of jeans is that there are so many different styles so even if you’re not a skinny jeans kinda girl like me there will be something for you!

Dress up Friday – Boohoo Plus Elizabeth Midi Dress!

Hello and welcome to the first instalment of Dress Up Friday! This is all about taking the well know dress down Friday and turning it into something glam! This month I have chosen to feature the Boohoo Plus Elizabeth Midi Dress!

I love the Boohoo Plus range, not only does it provide so many options for us plus size babes, it’s extremely affordable too so it’s a must if you’re looking for affordable fashion!

Because I’m so short, I often worry about buying things that are described as “midi” mainly because they tend to sit at my ankles! This dress is perfect though, it is perhaps a little longer at the back than I would like, but because of the Hi-Lo detailing it really works for me.

The fabric is quite thick and I love the Bardot style with the fold down detailing. The skirt is pleated at the front and really full, I definitely get a 50’s vibe from it!
