Galaxy Defenders Stay Forever.



Dress: c/o Simply Be. Belt: Matalan. Bolero: M&Co.

I got sent this lovely galaxy print dress way back when by the lovely people at Label PR/Simply Be. It's something in the past I'd definitely shy away from it being a maxi dress and colourful but I adored the print so much I though it was worth a try! Surprisingly I really liked it on me, the only downsides being that it is to long but what else were flatforms made for! Also it's very snug under your arms I'm wearing my usual size which is a 20.

he fabric is comfortable and doesn't seem to crease much (which is a massive plus for me) and of course the print is insanely amazing, I've been obsessed with galaxy print for ages and I was just so happy to find something with it in a plus size store! I feel this could be dressed up or down but I quite like it for a more snazzy occasion, in fact I have a few weddings coming up in the not so distant future and I think this will work perfectly for one of them! When I took these pictures it was still really nippy so I paired it with an old bolero and added some detail to the waistband with this cute little belt.

I decided on something a little different when it came to my hair and make up, gone is my usual red lip and here it is replaced with Rimmel Apocolips in Stella which is a lovely almost pinky colour unfortunately it hasn't been picked up in the photographs. I decided to shove (technical term) my hair into a messy knot with some pieces framing my face, I don't tend to wear it up very often as I'm worried it makes my face even bigger but never mind I didn't call my twitter Rosieroundface for nothing! And yes my title is from McFly's classic Star Girl, I couldn't help myself!
