Dress c/o Spoiled Brat
Shoes: Matalan
A few weeks ago the lovely Susan at Spoiled Brat got in touch to tell me about new brand to the site Ralabu. As it happens I’d been browsing the site only that morning and had noticed the beautiful embellished pieces was deeply coveting the Ramona Dress. I was ever so generously offered a dress of my choice to review and it was a no brainer for me in terms of which one to go for. When it arrived a few days later it was instant love. The heavy embellishment reminds me somewhat of dresses my Mum wore in the 1990s when she went out for an everning and it’s a damn shame I have my Christmas party outfit already sorted as this would have been perfect (I have told Ben he needs to take me out for dinner so I can wear it). I was a bit worried the dress would be too short on my tall figure but actually it’s perfect and fit’s like a dream- I did size up though.
It’s  the second day of my festive annual leave and Mum and I might brave Cabot Circus for a bit although my movement is still quite restricted so it will be a brief trip. With our Christmas party this coming Friday I need to find me a clutch bag and some flat shoes (goodbye dreams of heels) as well as the perfect shade of eyeshadow to go with my outfit….that and pick up the two remaining gifts I have left to buy.

(we can scrub round that previous paragraph, serves me right for scheduling a post…I’ve been signed off sick for another three weeks so no festive shopping and no Christmas Party, aye aye aye).

What do you think of this dress? If you were given your pick of the Ralabu brand which would you choose? I loved the look of the Riverside dress but decided I just wouldn’t feel comfortable in it.

P.S. to anyone with a problem with me doing outfit post- just don’t read the blog ok? I might be off sick but I’m not bed bound. Whatever I do hurts so does it really matter if I decide that I’ll just carry on blogging in my normal fashion now I’m able to stand and hold myself better? I think not. It’s the same as me leaving the house, I need to walk daily to help heal things. I’m not skiving, I’m not trying to pull a fast one, I’m just not giving in to a problem that could otherwise pull me down.

tartan- the other black

Dress c/o Spoiled Brat
Tights: Topshop
Boots: New Look
Black might be my key theme for the winter months but I can’t draw myself away from last year’s love of tartan either. The second I saw this dress by Neon Rose on Spoiled Brat I wanted it, and a few days later the lovely team there offered to send me one. Made up? I certainly was!
I can’t say enough good things about this dress, it’s flattering and comfortable and it’s got TARTAN on it. Winning combination. I also really like Navy against my skin tone and hair colour so yeah. I think I’ll live in this quite a lot and it’s perfect for this inter-seasonal weather.
Happy Middle of the Week folks,
half way through!
Once again I have a manic day ahead with my 7:15am start at work and an afternoon of organising myself and packing for the long weekend away. I’m not the world’s best packer so it will pretty much take me a few hours to decide, un-decide and decide again.
Thank you for the super amazing comments on yesterday’s post. They all meant a lot to me
(and yes, I know I bagged myself a keeper!)
((and yes, the Rook piercing hurt!!))
Have a good rest of the week and weekend


Outfit posts have been thin of the ground this week, partly because I’ve had other things to post about, and partly because I loathe dressing for winter…especially when last year’s baggy warm jumpers are now snug in another way.

But whatever, that’s just an excuse for more shopping, right? (All I’m lacking now is the funds!)

Here’s what I’ve been wearing over the last couple of days.



Clothing at Tesco skirt (told you you’d see more of this!), Reindeer cardi from New Look a couple of years back. Thermal, YES thermal long sleeve. We don’t have snow here (yet) but it’s bloody freezing.




Jumper dress from Next and Over Knee boots from ASOS. I’ll end up adding a cardigan or six to this later!

How do you dress for the cold weather?
And where is good for cheap, warm clothes right now?
