I didn't get a chance to update over the weekend so i'm going to do a little two-in-one post, an outfit from Saturday night and an outfit from today. I wore my favorite nude pink pumps with both outfits, those shoes have been my best purchase of the last year without question. And at only €15 they were a steal! I noticed last week that the store have them back in stock so they must be a hit with everyone. I didn't accessorize too much with either dress, I wanted the focus to be on the dresses so I kept the jewelery simple.
Dress: Primark *** Cardigan: Faith 21 *** Shoes: Dunnes *** Bracelet: Forever 21 *** Necklace: Forever 21
Dress: New Look *** Blazer: Dunnes *** Shoes: Dunnes *** Bracelets: Dorothy Perkins
Remember when you were a little girl and always wanted to be *that* girl in your favorite movie? Well, aside from the Olsen twins, I always wanted to be Daryl Hannah's character (Madison) in the movie "Splash". As soon as I seen this dress I knew I had to have it. I feel like 50% mermaid, 30% Barbie, 17% princess and 3% crazy when I wear it. It is the most expensive piece of clothing I own from New Look, it was somewhere between €75 and €80 (because its from the Giles Deacon collection) but it was worth every cent. None of the sequins/discs have fallen off yet which i'm very happy about too!
A big "yay" is in order! Why? Well, a while back I mentioned that Forever 21 are planning to open their first European store here in the fall, then a couple of weeks later I mentioned that I had applied for a position.. last week I got a reply and I have an interview! My interview is on Friday, I have no idea what to expect but i'm still very excited. I don't have any fashion retail experience but hopefully that won't matter too much. Forever 21 is hands down my favorite store.
The latest Beth Ditto for Evans collection launched a couple of days ago online, I was going to make a post dedicated to it but after viewing the full collection I decided against it. Don't get me wrong, its great that us big girls have a trendy collection like this to look forward to but it didn't blow me away. I only liked one piece (the polka dot dress) but I believe it was almost £60 and I would have preferred if the collar was a solid color like this. Lots of other bloggers seem happy with the collection but as much as I wanted to love it, I don't. Maybe my expectations are just higher now that we have ASOS curve and Faith 21, both of whom produce trendy plus size clothes at a much lower price. What do you girls think about it?
