Simply Be... My Valentine!

The lovely team over at Simply Be sent me this surprise parcel of Valentines goodies and I thought the best way to show you all would be to film a video for you! As I'm single I won't be spending my Valentines with a guy but I'll be spending it with my friends, which lets be honest will probably be more fun! 

Below are all the products featured in my box (which I could link you too!) 

Lipsticks available as part of a set here.

Heart Necklace by Label B from Simply Be.

Satin and Lace Balcony Bra by Pretty Secrets in a 38DD. 

Satin and Lace Brazilian Knickers by Pretty Secrets in a UK Size 20.

Red/Black Nicole Lace Body by Pretty Secrets in a 38DD.

Heart Box Clutch Bag (currently in the sale!) 

Bra I mentioned in the video here. 

And finally the stunning dress I'm wearing in the video was sent to me By Voodoo Vixen before Christmas but due to all the awful weather I've not been able to properly shoot this beauty yet for the blog but watch this space because I'm in love with it! Like I am with every piece Voodoo Vixen ever send me! This is also available here at Simply Be and currently reduced, score!

Very Cherry with Dolly and Dotty

Dress: c/o Dolly & Dotty. Bag: Primark. Shoes: Evans.

I'm back with a new post today showing you one of the dresses adorable Vintage retro brand Dolly and Dotty sent me across to show you guys and I have to say I'm really impressed! I just wish my photos did it justice but my surroundings were against me when I snapped these!

One of the first things I love about Dolly and Dotty is how true to size the two dresses they sent me were with Vintage Reproduction brands generally speaking I've learnt to always size up so where possible I'll order a UK22 but here both dresses I was sent were UK20's and they fit really well in fact with this Evelyn Retro Swing Dress I find it quite generous particularly around my arms which makes it really comfortable! Another thing is that each dress came with a matching reversible headscarf which is such an adorable idea! Here I just tied it onto my clutch bag, another thing is that this dress came with 2 belts one in a matching print then this plain red one and for how reasonable the price of this is, these little extras are a complete surprise! The only downside for me really is that it's a little long in the body for me but this is something that often happens with me due to being pretty short!

I can't wait for warmer weather so I can wear this bare legged and show the fabulous print off! You can also see a video of the look over on my Youtube Channel here.

Elomi Anushka.

Anushka Set: c/o Elomi Lingerie. Kimono: c/o Yours Clothing (last season) 

Here I am with another lingerie post for you, aren't you all lucky? After Elomi won best Lingerie at The Plus Size Awards they sent me the Anushka Half cup padded Bra and briefs as I attended with them but due to how crazy Christmas was I'm only just having chance to post these up to show you. I've been putting it off as I was worried these photos may not come across all that well but it's a beautiful lacy dare I say even pretty sexy set and I wanted to show you guys! 

Half cup bra's are something I can't really say I've ever tried but I do love this one the padding is just right now so much I feel like it's just padding and no boob but not so little that I feel insecure about getting the dreaded nip on in this freezing weather! Here I'm wearing a 38DD and it fits well, I've never had an issue with sizing when it comes to Elomi and they were the first team to fit me so I knew what size my boobs actually were! (however my size does fluctuate depending on brand etc) what I particularly like about this set is that it feels grown up and snazzy to put on and flounce around in but it's also wearable, so I can actually wear this and it's comfortable! The full knickers aren't as high waisted as I normally like in a lingerie set but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked them on, here I'm wearing a UK20 in the briefs which I would say are true to size but don't have a lot of stretch in the fabric. As always the detailing with Elomi is also adorable, I decided to style this with rough/messy hair and a slick of ruby lipstick to match the underwear. I also went with the kimono to cover as I'm so pale I end up almost invisible with the white wall background! 

I can't wait to see some of Elomi's upcoming pieces in person which you can see here. Including this utterly lovely Raquel set which I think gives off a stunning vintage vibe and would look beautiful on!
