Dress: For Love 21 @ Forever 21 *** Cardigan: Savida @ Dunnes *** Flats: Dunnes *** Accessories: Primark

I am wearing a size large dress from Forever 21! I almost feel like shouting it from the rooftops. I can very rarely wear anything except knit/stretch tank tops from their regular sized line, which is a shame because I like the clothes much better than their "plus sized" collection (why can't us fat girls wear the same clothes as skinny minnies, anyhow?!) It was a tight squeeze and i'm kind of cheating because the dress is from the "For Love 21" range and those sizes generally run bigger. I do prefer that collection best out of everything in store. I think its aimed at ladies who are 30+ (I should remember this from my training when I worked there, but I don't!) but it just seems less in-your-face and more laid back than other pieces. The floral print is what sold the dress for me of course! As its Forever 21, the dress is made for girls without boobs and so the fitted waist is awkwardly under my breasts, but i'll make the exception for it.

I don't really have much else to say after my massive entry earlier! I have a lot of catching up to do blog wise. I haven't replied to emails in a few weeks and I have plenty of comments to return. I will try to get most of it done before the end of the weekend. I placed an order on ASOS last week for a dress to wear out tomorrow night and it was dispatched Monday but didn't arrive. I'm really gutted as it was £45 and I ordered it especially to wear out! I'll probably return it when it arrives as I really can't justify spending that much on one item at the minute! I have finally picked out the font for my first tattoo so I hope to get it done after my birthday. My friend works in a tattoo studio and her portfolio is amazing so I have no doubt that I will love it when I finally get the courage to get it done. Have any of you ladies had a tattoo on your rib area? I have plenty of fat there which should help with the pain factor, i'm still a little bit of a wimp though!

  1. This dress is truly lovely, and the many accessories really compliment and accentuate the dress' beauty. This is truly wonderful. The flats are also a sweet compliment to the dress and accessories as well.

  11. That dress is so pretty! I love the coral necklace too, I might have to get one myself, as all the dresses I'm lusting over recently seem to have oral involved!

  12. You look so adorable, the dress fits you really nicely. Me being the flatboard I am, have the opposite problem, dresses with big cleavages fit loose, and everytime I bend down, I have to be carefull not to flash anyone, it bothered my having small breasts when I was younger, but I eventually got over it, people willing to judge you on your bra size aren't usually worth the effort, anyways.

  17. I love that dress! Even more so because I only have little boobies haha!

    I got script across my ribs last year, even though it was my fifth tattoo, it hurt quite a bit. If you haven't gotten tattooed before, just be warned that it does hurt, but you *will* get used to it. I'm getting tattoo number seven on Monday, I'm super excited!

    Also, thanks for the Twitter FF!
