Evening Lace Dress

This lovely black and silver dress with lace detail was part of my first experience with “Yours Clothing”. Bonded and multi layer lace dresses like this have been quite big recently and I am definitely a fan of the look – I think it lends the lace a certain sophistication.

Meeting up with an old Uni friend at a German restaurant for a great meal was the perfect occasion to wear this dress and show it off. It has also been performing sterling double-duty as one of my office dresses.Finished Collage

This dress came with a ribbon belt – however, with dresses like these I prefer to wear wide belts as they tend to give a lot more definition to my waist which creates a nice hourglass which I think better flatters my shape. For a very long time I had only one of these belts until, finally, I recently found a great choice of belts at “Yours Clothing” and so this belt is from their collection, as well as the Handbag and also the matching purse.

At 5’9″ I am not really friends with high heels, especially as I find them to be quite painful after a relatively short time. I find Ankle boots like this pair that I bought at Deichman while on my most recent trip to Germany, to make a great alternative to pumps and high heels.


“Yours” Are Going To Ruin Me…

Yours Clothing

I neither really understand nor usually do “Haul” posts – however my last big spree may actually be deserving of one…

In the past I had walked past the brick and mortar “Yours Clothing” shop a few times while I was shopping in Manchester, but I never really paid them much attention. Why? I’m not quite sure – somehow I’d just overlooked them. However during my endless quest for some new plus-size belts I came across their online store and it wasn’t long before I became quite excited…

Every plus-size girl will know the excitement of discovering a new shop, a shop that sells not only all the things we’ve been looking for but especially in the sizes that we are looking for. To top this off, “Yours”  also had a sale on when I stumbled across them, so it was quite difficult to resist. They also seemed to sell exactly what I had been looking for so long and that had been difficult to find, as well as some lovely dresses.

So ultimately my “little” shop consisted of 3 dresses, 3 belts, 2 cardigans, 2 peplum tops, 1 skirt, 1 pair of earrings, 1 necklace, 1 bracelet, 1 handbag and 1 purse… Most of these items will feature in posts coming soon.

Thanks to the great prices this altogether came to only about £150. Through this, “Yours” have immediately made it onto the list of my favourite plus-size stores. However, they might just end up ruining me if they continue to have things like these at those kinds of prices. It is going to be incredibly hard to resist…
