Good Tartan / Problematic Tartan - Liz Mcclarnon for Fashion World

Whilst I was in London last week I visited the breathtaking Ham Yard Hotel (seriously, truly aspirational vibes were throwing themselves at me as soon as I walked though the door, IT HAD A LIBRARY. There was also quiche...) and had a peruse of the new Liz Mcclarnon range for Fashion World.
The range has some beautiful lingerie and sportswear. I'm not one for sportswear, I'm a dedicated pyjama or not-pyjama girl. However, I loved the high waisted cut of the bird print brief and the bold tartan print which is available in both a balcony and plunge style bra as well as brief.
My favourite piece is the bird print body shaper. I'm told that this isn't "shapewear" as such - meaning that it will streamline your shape but not feel like you've been got by a boa constrictor... Quite rightly, not everyone wants streamlining but I personally prefer wearing separates with a shaper underneath, it saves me tugging at myself from all angles.
Above are some of the prints fashionworld have going down at the moment - great for anyone feeling a bit snazzy.
After taking a look at Liz's range, I put my sticky little fingers all over a couple of pieces from the current Claire Richards range. Those of you who follow me on twitter and Instagram may recognise the green sequin dress
I truly adore this dress, the only issue that I have with it for myself is the length. At 6ft, the dress is above the knee and I know that I just won't wear it. For anyone shorter than me, this is the PERFECT statement dress for the festive period, I know that the price is a bit £££ BUT the quality really is fabulous and it would be a guaranteed hit at the work/family Christmas do/drunken mess. 

I'm going to give the black spot mesh prom dress a try - it's surprisingly light and has so much movement to it, plus the length seems much more up my street (also, sleeves, thank you)
Just a final image for you here. Yes, my coat was the exact same fabric as the wall. I was like a crap tweed chameleon. It wouldn't happen to Beyoncé....
