Faux Fur Fabulous With River Island


Friends, I Have The Lurg. 

Why am I telling you this you may wonder? 
1. Maybe you care, I like it when people care. Thank you for caring. 
2. If you follow me on social media then you'll have not seen much of me. Maybe this has been a good thing. Who knows. Anyway, live tweeting taking antibiotics or instagram grids full of duvets aren't much fun.
3. I'm very whiny. Deal with it.

Luckily for all concerned, there was a time in the past when I wasn't ill. I'd go as far as to say I was positively well. During this time I was hashtag blessed to receive this incredible Faux Fur coat* from my lovely friends at River Island. Fluffy, warm and my favourite dove grey colour, it's hardly been off my back (When I leave the house that is...) River Island are one of my absolute favourites when it comes to all things glam - Bright colours, modern cuts and just the right level of embellishment; When I'm planning a night out, they're my go-to.


The absolute best thing about faux fur is that it lends itself equally as well to casual as it does to glam. Wear with a good pair of jeans, tee and trainers to the pub or with a LBD and some bojanglies like these tasseled babies for a special occasion. Reckon you can get faux fur pyjamas...?


I know I can't possibly be ill forever and with this in mind, I'll have more to tell you soon - In fact, I've been listening to your feedback and have been in touch with some of the brands you want to know more about and sourcing some of the items you so dearly want in your wardrobe, so watch this space!

Taking Floral into Autumn with Lovedrobe

I've heard of people who pack away their Summer wardrobe. Like they actually put everything they wear in the warmer months into suitcases and then get them out again the next year. 
1.   Who is this organised?
2.   How do they have this much time?
3.   Why would you do this?

Most of my wardrobe is incredibly versatile in that I wear it all year round; Sometimes I put a roll neck under an item, sometimes I swap a skirt for a pair of skinny jeans. More often than not, I bang on a pair of tights, ankle boots and a big old coat to keep out the cold, just as I have with this Plus Size Shift dress from Lovedrobe.

This dress is already pretty seasonal in that it is knee length, fully lined and has a beautiful embroidery to the front and sleeves. I'm an eternal fan of navy blue but this particular dress is also available in maroon (As seen here on gorgeous Lucy) Size-wise, I opted to size up twice due to the generally small fit of Lovedrobe, actually an 18 would have been fine but I like the looser fit of it, particularly around the sleeves.

I've been pairing the dress with my River Island aviator jacket which I invested in after getting hold of a 25% discount in October and I LOVE IT. It's so warm and the over-sizing of it means that it sits in exactly the right place and isn't at all boxy. Plus I get to look like Del Boy - What more could one want from life? I've looked online and can't see it in stock other than in black but have definitely seen it still in store so if you're interested it may be worth having a look about.

I've also been wearing these Simply Be Ankle Boots* non-stop recently, they go with absolutely everything. If you fancy reading a bit more about them I've written the first of two Autumn guest posts for them over on the Simply Be blog - Why not have a read.
