Some of you may remember I mentioned back in June that Forever 21 are opening their first European store here this fall. You can probably tell how much I love their clothes and accessories since I mention them quite often!
Since then I have been searching the internet every morning to see if they were hiring and this morning I got lucky! They aren't hiring sales assistants yet (just senior staff/managers) but I called the agency who are recruiting for them and the lovely lady agreed to forward my resume to F21. Fingers crossed that I at least get an interview!
Today was a really nice day, not typical August weather but still much better than all of the rain we have been getting this summer so I decided to wear my favorite spring/summer dress.

Dress: Topshop *** Cardigan: Primark *** Shoes: Topshop *** Necklace: Forever 21 *** Bracelet: Primark
Picture overload today, I had some extra time to take pictures! This dress is from Topshop a couple of seasons ago. The largest size they stock is a size UK 16 (US12) and it's rare that you can find it in their stores so I felt very lucky to find this dress in my size! I don't always fit into their dresses because of my large belly, hips, and bum area but this dress fits perfectly. The lower back has a small zipper and the rest is free size so it is fine for my size 16-18 body! I think the cut of this dress is one of the most flattering styles that I own.
I usually wear an off-white cardigan with this dress but I think the pink looks much better! I picked up the pink cardigan in Primark a couple of weeks back. Again, its rare that they have size 16's or 18's in stock in my local store but they had a whole rack of these in every color, I just wish I had snagged some of the others! The bow detail on the pockets is what sold me on it. I sometimes feel like my blog should be called pearlslacerufflesandbows, maybe even pearlslacerufflesbowsfloralprintandnude ...or not! :)
Also thank you for all of the lovely comments on my last entry, it looks like quite a few of us fancy a little change in our looks for A/W!
