Style | Gothic Glamour with Missguided


Unlike most people, I'm not that big on Halloween, I feel like it's become a big deal out of nowhere and I can't keep up with the pressure to be a sexy cat/zombie/squirrel/piece of cutlery. That said, I do quite like a good old fashioned gothic look so this weekend that's what I've done. Right here.

Style | A Saucy LBD - Lindybop Kelsey Wiggle Dress

I told you I had an LBD coming up and WHAT an LBD it is! 
I first saw this dress on the babeliest pink haired goddess I have ever seen, on a night out in Manchester. She was wearing it with a pair of chunky sandals: The perfect combination of classy & cool and I was smitten. Once I realised I couldn't have the girl, I set my heart on the dress.

Caped Crusader - The Evans Plus Size cape dress

Hello.
It's me.
I was wondering if after all this time you'd like to look at some pictures of me in a rather nice caped dress?

I'm not going to waste internet space writing about where I've been of late for the following reasons: 1. It's boring, 2. We need to save space on the internet for pictures of pandas in the snow and Javier Bardem with his shirt off. So lets get straight into it;

Before Christmas Evans got in touch and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing an outfit for them. I decided that as it was a gift I'd go for something completely different from usual - Hence the Black Cape Chiffon Dress*.

The dress is fully lined with a chiffon overlay, keyhole neckline and and the piece de rĂ©sistance; A fabulous chiffon cape. 

If you don't love a cape you're basically a baddie. Capes make everything more exciting - Can you remember fastening the top button of your coat and running around the playground shouting "dinner dinner dinner dinner, dinner dinner dinner dinner BATMAAAN"? Well I can and this is almost exactly the same only slightly more acceptable at the age of 31.

I really like where this dress sits on me - the length is the perfect "short" on me, I really like how it fits (I'm in a 16 which is very true to size) and I really like that it's not like anything else I own - Not one of my existing dresses has a cape which I've never previously been disappointed by. Now I am. 

I have the dress dressed down here with leather ankle boots because I was going to a birthday party and needed to be not only *comfortable* but also a bit swishy so that i could swish about and be one of life's winners. Saying this, I can imagine it with chunky heeled sandals for a city break when the weather bucks its ideas up.

This dress is currently in the sale and if you're a kooky kitten like me there's also a stunning embellished version which is really tickling all my vintage senses,

I'm not just popping in for a sporadic blog here, unless something out of my control happens (Alien abduction / I finally contract salmonella from my husband who is 95% chicken nugget) I thoroughly intend to post regularly from hereon in. I have some corking outfits from Live Unlimited, Navabi and Biba to name a few so, frankly, it would be rude not to.
