just one

Dress c/o She Likes
Boots: Miista
Just one photo of this particular outfit, partly because I was feeling self concious in body-con and partly because I was rushing to go out to see The Full Monty.
I remember promising last month that I would properly embrace body-con and get an item in my size rather than the next one up. When I was offered the chance to receive an item from She Likes and was most attracted to this dress I realised it was now or never.
At first I was super aware of how I looked in it, focusing on all the perceived flaws, but as the night went on I realised I cared less and less, and what I saw as flaws other people weren’t even noticing. It actually felt great to properly fill a piece of clothing, I think my main issue with body-con in the past was that there simply wasn’t enough body for it to look right!
It was great to FINALLY give these bargain boots a proper airing too. I took great pleasure in telling my friends how little I paid for them!
The Full Monty was brilliant! I’m pretty sure it’s touring so if you get a chance to see it, do. I love a theatre production that stays true to it’s film roots and although it has been a while since I’ve seen a film I thought this was brilliantly done and very accurate. It made for a great girls night out and we’ve vowed to make more trips to the theatre as there is quite a lot coming to the Bristol Hippodrome that we’d like to see and it’s a brilliant excuse to dress up a bit!
What’s the best thing you’ve seen on stage?

  1. I’m glad you got to really enjoy the girls night out at the Bristol Hippodrome and that “The Full Monty” was so brilliantly done, staying true to its roots. The best thing I’ve ever seen on stage? Myself! I was in two different bands decades ago, but seriously I think the play “Annie” was probably my favourite stage production.

  2. You look fantastic – you should be really proud of how far you’ve come ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best things I’ve seen on stage would probably be ‘Warhorse’ and ‘Stones in his Pockets’ although I’m quite partial to a musical of the Grease/Rocky Horror’ variety!
