Fitting room post...!!

Here we are again, got paid on Wednesday and I was lucky enough to get a bonus, well 'a share of the profits' because I work for a co-op which is great so I did some clothes shopping.
I was visiting London for an event, the Fashion Start-up, where experts from the fashion industry and financial advisers talked about things you have to consider before you start or while you are starting your fashion business. It was really good, you may think why were you there?? Well you never know and I have a few ideas jumping in my brain, so watch this space.
Anyway, I guess if you are reading is because you interested in clothes, plus size fashion or you are a good friend that can spare a couple of minutes to read me (special thanks to beautiful Juliette my biggest fan so far, I ❤ you).
So I was in London, and my bus from Oxford stops at Marble Arch...corner with Oxford know where I am going...hahaha.
I was in Primark by 9.20am!! and believe or not it was so empty, so I wondered around surprised by how many different stuff was there and sizes and I kept filling my basket.
Crazy ha?
As a good girl that I am and with tight budget I didn't spend much, I was after cardigans, jumpers, something to help me fight with this super cold weather we are having and I got two jumpers (but I don't have pictures yet), one black with studs in the shoulders (looove studs) and the other one is a warm wine color waterfall cut cardi with an aztec print.
I completely prohibited myself of trying any dress...and I succeed didn't try any but I really wanted to, that's what a call willpower!!grrrr
When I was trying the piles of stuff I remembered that Lauren from Pocket Rocket Fashion who I have followed for months often does fitting room pictures while trying clothes in different shops and I really like that because it helps you to see how good/bad some things fit you.
Well that's what I did...and here are the pictures...I tell you at the end what did I buy...xoxo
lovely top but a bit see through size UK18 (didn't buy)
I love those, couldn't resist buying them...UK6
Love the stud details in this top and the knitted skirt is so comfy to wear both UK18

Top is mine from ASOS and  knitted skirt from Primark (I didn't buy it) size UK18
 All this was in the morning, then I went to this event, and in the evening I got into the Evans shop in Oxford St and believe it or not I didn't find anything I liked, compared to all the pretty tops and skirts I saw in Primark, Evans seemed a bit too dark for me and old fashioned. There is always a cute dress but as I said I didn't want to try dresses to avoid any temptations.
After my visit to the shops I meet my friend Laura and we walked through Winter Wonderland in Hyde park...what a lovely day it was.

I am singing in the rain...

I know I'm a terrible blogger, I don't write often enough but is because my life is very busy and also boring at the same time. Nothing really exciting happened lately (apart from my kitten of course).
The weather is being horrible with all this rain and floodings but as we say in Spanish 'no hay mal que por bien no venga' meaning 'every bad thing brings something good'.
To fight this rainy days what better that some really funky wellies and Mac. They are so comfy and practical and great for walks in the meadow next where I live.

I have struggled in the past finding the right ones that fit my chunky calves, even though my last ones were from Next in the straight size department. They broke a couple of months ago so here you have my new ones:
Don't you just love them??
I am back with my polka dot obsession!
If you can't resist getting some from Jileon here is a code that will give you 10% off 'SLINK10', have a look in there is always good discounts!

And this is me with my Mac, is from last season so I don't have the link but I think you can appreciate how colorful is. I went to Harrods this weekend with my dad it was so busy I don't think I will be going back anytime soon.

What's your winter policy then, colorful or you get more into dark colors to match with the weather...?!

Lady in Red

I can't believe I haven't written for so long!!
I have been really busy, I started a sewing class and now I am Miss Crafty so addicted to make tote bags, make up bags, pin cushions, etc... I will put some pictures next time but just so you know I have booked a stall in a couple of Christmas fairs, will see how it goes.

Ok, to the outfit. Today I am wearing a bright red skater dress, and I have to say that some of my colleagues have complimented me so I think that color suits me.

The skater dress is very on trend right now and I think it can be very flattering overalls for the hourglass shape which I think I am... I may be wrong tho...

I am wearing with my shiny leggings and my super comfy boots from last season. I know how boring I never wear any bangles, earrings, etc...I am starting to consider myself not so girly.

I don't have any pictures from my coat because I didn't want to abuse my colleague's kindness, otherwise I never get pictures of my outfits from him again!! You can see in the 1st pic my scarf, I love the material and is from Dorothy Perkins (last season too).

So it's all last season, well I think I got the dress like 4 months ago, but I am trying to save money so no new clothes for me at least till the January sale, and I think is going to be really hard because I really want a new coat!!

Oh on the happy side, I have adopted a kitten, she is now 9 weeks old and she is so beautiful. I have called her Lima don't ask me why, the name just pop into my mind when I first saw her.

Here you have some pics of me posing (rather unnaturally...).
