To quote Ice Cube- Today was a good day.
The first time my eyes beheld this colourful camo dress was at the Evans Spring Summer Preview and I knew immediately that I was going to own it. Bought online last week, collected in store yesterday, and on my bod this morning. No dust is settling on this number. No fussy accessories needed apart from my day to day silver fly studs by Silver Spot Studio…
…and my black New Look wedges from last year. The fabric is a knitted polyester/ lycra blend in a substancial weight that is smooth to touch. A quality YKK zip runs along the back (YKK is the bees knees of zippers if you didn’t already know) and there are contrast lace panels at the side front and back of the bodice. With the contrast panel across the middle too and the camo print there is a lot going on but it doesn’t feel fussy.
This has immediately become one of my favourite dresses. People around me- be prepared to be sick of seeing it.
Its been a while since I wrote an OOTD post, only because I’ve not bought much new clothing of late. However, this week’s purchase merits an OOTD revival. It’s not about the jacket, the dress or the shoes as they are all pieces that have been featured on here before. This outfit is all about the bag.
With the emergence of adult colouring books, flat t- bar shoes and a café where you can sample an endless variety of sugary cereals, it seems like there are many of us who reminisce about the days when our lives were all about writing in pencil, Knock Down Ginger and Saturday morning cartoons. The appearance of Play Purse onto the accessories market is right on cue.
I cannot tell you the number of miniature pocket-money purses like this I had as a child. Each starting out with an abundance of multi-coloured beads, and ending their lives picked bald and cast aside. To see this in adult size brings back many happy memories. Old school style in a big girl size. It even comes with extra beads in case I want to go the whole hog and relive the bead picking experience, but with a big girl price tag I doubt it.
Hey people! Yes, I know its been a looooooooong time since I’ve posted but I’m going to get back on track. I do a lot of updates via Instagram so if you’re not already following @fatgirlclothes, do so now!
