SUGAR, DARLING?

BY NANCY WHITTINGTON-COATES

Hey darlings, I've got another gorgeous piece from The Curve to share with you today! This is their Bell Sleeve Tunic and is a bit of a style revelation for me as I would never usually pick an oversized style or a tunic. I usually favour more fitted designs but as soon as I saw the photo of this baby I loved the floaty sleeves and thought her why not give it a try as I might find it's a style I actually like and bam, I did! Don't you love taking a risk and it paying off?

The tunic itself is a lovely thick non-stretch single layer fabric while the arms are multi layered and in a thinner sheer fabric that hangs just beautifully. The sleeves are my ideal length too as they hit me just below the elbow, yay! When I first got it I thought I'd want to wear jeans or maybe PU leggings with this tunic but when I tried jeans I felt it gave a more casual look than I was looking for and I don't actually have any PU leggings so that scuppered that idea! I grabbed my trusty cropped leggings and kept on my lovely new platform boots and the result was just what I was looking for. I wanted to keep this as monochrome a look as possible and so I grabbed the lovely faux fur stole that my Mother in Law bought me for Christmas and then decided to go the whole hog and throw on the ridiculous giant faux pearl necklace that was an old Primark purchase. As it was a few years ago it's not available anymore but if you were desperate to have one for yourself you could buy this one off eBay and then stick some black ribbon bows on to get the same effect!

If you were interested in my make up on my eyes I used the shades Rosette, Honey and Chinois from the Stila 'In The Garden' Palette with my usual Rimmel Glam Eyes Liner and Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara (no false lashes). The lipstick was a prezzie from my lil sis, it's the shade Pansy from Limecrime's Velvetines range.
