OOTD: the 99p dress

thanks to Social Media, I was looking at Facebook at the right moment, I managed to grab one of the 99p dresses from Yours Clothing!
It is a bit big and super long on me but I think with my sewing skills I can sort it out.
Did you manage to get any of the 99p?
Funny enough, I thought they were dresses from last season hence the price but went to Manchester's Yours Clothing store and there were the dresses, retailing at £30!!

Simply Be fitting room

Hello lovelies,
This post is running a bit late, but I was back in the office yesterday with no time for writing.
This last weekend I was in Manchester due to a work event and I had the chance to spend the Sunday trying things on some of the plus size retailers that actually have a physical shop in Manchester (not in Oxford where I live).
I visited Simply Be, Yours and the Inspire section in New Look.
First Simply Be, let me know what do you think!

Ax Paris Daisy dress £38 - I love it! It fits great and it's very tailored, the only down point is the price! I was not prepared to pay that for a dress, will look for discount codes/sales but will definitely be buying this one (size UK 20 true to size or slightly tight)
Joe Browns Rambling Rose dress £45 - Again so expensive but gorgeous, you can tell the quality, this one was a size 20 and it was a bit tight on the boobs area as you can see in the 2nd pic. I think it's a good investment and will get lots of wear in the spring may buy it later on.
AX Paris Lace Cuff and Collar dress £35 - I love it, really thick material but my friends thought it was too black and serious.
Dog Print Skater dress £35 - Really cute but I found it a bit shapeless and also I am more of a cat lady!
