A Worrying Trend

Do you ever look through up & coming clothing trends and feel that dread that its just not going to suit you? To be honest I get that every time a new collection is released. It takes me a long time to wait for new styles to mellow out enough to suit my plump frame. I don't mind that in all honesty. Everyone needs to learn how to work fashion to suit themselves and this is how I go about it.

I used to work in nightclubs so could always see the latest looks and see the good & bad ways to wear those looks. Although it did get to the point where everyone looked exactly the same and whilst they all (mostly) looked great I honestly couldn't tell one Topshop Bodycon mini dress wearer from another Topshop Bodycon mini dress wearer. 
 Not that my curves would ever be caught dead squeezed into a Bodycon, this just an example. 
Advice I live & die by: If you don't have a flat stomach, DON'T show it off.

But this is not why I'm writing this post. I have a major worry about the latest trends appearing on the internet. especially the heavily vintage inspired trends which in all honesty I'm in love with!  

My concern?

They're ALL high necked!

Dresses all taken from Asos Curves. I do not own these.
Cleavage is most definitely not in fashion. And this is worrying for me and my ample bosom. I'm very proud of my assets and love showing them off! Guess I'm going to have to be extra clever to make sure the girls don't look like a set of squished pillows in those unforgiving high necklines.

  1. I thought this when I was flicking through a magazine in work that weekend past. I hate high necks because I feel like they are suffocating me but also because of my cupsize there is no way high necks are flattering to me :(

  4. I refuse to rock a high neck line. I can't and I won't. I think trends are something that should be taken into consideration but never obeyed. You should wear what your comfortable in and works for you. Like you said, everyone just ends up looking the same and personally I'd rather go against the grain and stand out than be another clone.

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
