Ruby rocks and thats a fact.
This is my first outfit post since Christmas, so I guess it's my first one of 2011! Happy new year everyone. I just want to start by apologising for the rubbish quality of my photograph's my digital camera is a lot better (even if it does make me look like a ghost) but I'm yet to acquire a tripod and the brother has gone back to uni for a week so its my web cam on a box for now.
Has anyone else been hitting the sales? But I have a little confession is that I haven't even left the house to do so, yes the online stores are you pretty well out of me. Some of the prices were really low it was impossible to resist and I did actually need some new trousers and shoes... and possibly the odd dress. This beauty being one of them I ordered this lovely ruby rocks dress off Evans in the sale for 20 pound but soon after it was reduced to 15 quid but I don;t mind because I got 25% off my order anyway. At the same time as purchasing this one I also bought a lace and jersey floral dress for a tenner which i thought was a total bargain and it looked really lovely on the site, but once I had it on it just didn't feel comfortable so off it goes and is awaiting for me to send it back. I have since ordered a really cool jumpsuit from style369 for 7 pound and a lovely pair red velvety pumps for 7 quid as well, I cannot wait for these to arrive lets hope they fit!
Now on to my outfit! As I've already said the dress is by Ruby rock's, it's original price was 40 pound which I would of never paid, even though I've been lusting over it for months before it went on sale. The fit of the dress is really lovely and the fabric is comfortable I would say this dress is true to size it fits me really well and I'm a size 20 most of the time (well I seem to be a different size depending what shop I'm in) it have a tie around the waist and the dress just flows really nicely. The pattern is so adorable it's like a really quirky ditsy print and I love it. Under neath my dress I'm just wearing some Matalan leggings for warmth more than anything, these leggings are some of the best I've had and they go up to a size 22 but I'm sure they'd fit a size or two bigger than that.
The bag was a recent charity shop find, I always use my patent leather little structured bag, but it was starting to get damaged from when I knocked it into things, so I was in one of my usual charity shops and my mum found this cute handbag at the back of the rack for the wonderful price of 3.99 and it fits everything in much better than my other one! The boots I am wearing were a competition prize I won off the lovely plus size website style369 there still pretty new but the people who work on there blog and twitter are ever so nice. And I'm just wearing my really old red lipstick (which needs replacing) to bring a little bit of the colour from the print on my dress up to my face.
I have recently bought my first few items off asos curve and I really hope they fit because there ever so lovely! What I bought was some really awesome peg leg trouser/chino pants. They will be perfect for the few outfit posts inspired by the women of the war I have planned. Oh and p.s I'm sorry I look super moody in the top picture it was blowing a gale outside when I took these!
Has anyone else bought anything from the Ruby rocks line in the sales on either Evans or style369. Are yours as good a fit?
