It's been awhile but I'm still wearing a frock!

It's been a month since we last spoke but that's not a bad thing! I'm still wearing frocks everyday and I LOVE it! 

I have really got to grips with choosing my frock each day, matching tights and finding cute cardi's! My collection of brooches has doubled too as they make the perfect accessory! 

Here's afew of my latest additions! 
I've also been surprised at how much my shoe collection has grown! Although I'm still a 'flats fan' afew pairs of heels have crept in! Check them out! 

My new found love of cardi's has led me to try my hand at jazzing up one or two of my plain ones. I've bought some iron on transfers- sugar skulls, butterflies, mermaids and flowers. I plan to 'pimp up' the boring black ones, maybe even add some lace trims and pearl buttons! Watch this space for the results! 

It seems that just as I get comfortable with my look the season changes and so the 'look' needs tweaking! I'm currently on the hunt for sun dresses, thin flesh/tan tights and sandals! I adore genuine 1950's dresses, often coverting many via my EBay watch list. But, as often the way with most vintage clothing, being a bigger girl means the sizing is just tooooo tiny for me. So I've enrolled in Slimming World to help shift afew dress sizes (6 weeks and 1stone gone!). I'm hoping this will mean my summer wardrobe will be bursting with vintage frockage! I will keep you updated! 
I'll leave you with a pic of my two fave frocks so far! Which are your faves?

  1. You look amazing as always, slimming world or no slimming world, but these two faves are just incredible on you! I really want one of these wiggles, and want to jazz up my cardis too. I also love my collection of brooches (all from you).
    Thank you so much for doing this challenge, it's inspired me to dress as myself* recently and given me so much confidence ❤️

    *by myself I mean I finally feel like me, not the awkward one who doesn't really fit in, or the one who isn't really anything special. I feel like I've 'come home', style wise. I know that's an odd thing to say, but the only way to put it to accurately describe the feeling ��
