Flamingos and kitty ears

Here's my outfit from Sunday me and the hubby went for some breakfast then into town before going to see my family. I decided to wear this dress i got from dorothy perkins a month or so ago. I was priced at £42 but i had a few discount codes so got it for £29 including p&p the dress is now in the sale for £25 but they only have the navy one its here if anyone is wanting to buy it. Now as I'm sure I've said before i do have a habit of buying something, trying it on for a milli second then hanging it up in the wardrobe and thats what i did with this dress. I got it in a size 22 but it is too small for me around the bust, its ok when i have a cardigan on but without one you can see the side of my bra, as i'd only tried it on for such a short time i'd not noticed. Although yes it it too small i still like how it looks and the print is so cute so i will keep it and continue to wear it.
This was the only picture i got without my
cardigan on


I wore my h&m cardigan that i got for £3 in the sale it was the first time id worn it and it was super comfy. I got it in an xl i wasn't sure it was going to fit but for £3 if was worth the risk.
Not sure why i look so scowly here i do try
to smile honestly!


Here is a close up of the material
I also wore my cats ears headband for the first time it was from asos i love the pearls on the ears. A few people did a double take i guess you don't see many people with cat ears sprouting from their head!



A completely silly picture just to make you smile
Do you keep certain outfits even though they are a little small if your in love with the print?
XOXO

  2. DEar Rachel, You are so cute I like your silly picture... And your flamingos dress is so sweet I like the flamingo print. It is so pretty with white cardigan. I always prefer to wear a cardigan on dress. It seems more elegant I think..And I must say that your cardigan is so cheap..:)) Ohh I want it...:))
    Best Warm Wishes...:))

  7. This dress looks amazing on you! It doesn't look too small on you at all in the photo, but I know it's a weird fit. I have too much fabric up top (as I sized up), and the area from the waist to the bust seems to be oddly sewn. It's still one of my favourites though, cos the print and shape are amazing. It's still in the sale, I came across it earlier http://www.dorothyperkins.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33053&storeId=12552&productId=5421383&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=291042&parent_categoryId=&pageSize=20&refinements=category~[291043|291042]^category~[291044|291043]&noOfRefinements=2. I'm loving those cat ears, too. And what a bargain your cardi was! xx

    1. I could do with some of your extra material! It looks ok from the front on but at the side you can see half my bra as there's not enough material to cover it. Hm can be really hit and miss I wish they would make their plus size range bigger and better. And I want more ears now xx
