I make no secret of the fact that I'm a big history buff, especially when it comes to the darker, more dramatic side of things. I've always loved Gothic architecture and Pre-Raphaelite artworks which heavily feature deep, bold colour tones and romantic tropes like lots of florals and flowing gowns and it was these features that drew me to this stunning Together Floral Shirt Dress (£69.99*) from Fashion World

Ever since I was younger I've been told that if you have a big bust you have to avoid high necklines as it looks unflattering, but honestly I just don't agree. This year I've been wearing more and more shirt and slash neck styles and I love the look, especially with a long sleeve - it seems very chic and vintage classic and when I need to look effortlessly smart this is the style I go for. There's no doubt that the all over print is what sets this dress apart, especially with its palette of pinks, purples and greens against a black background. It's an eye catching piece and the detailing like the lace panels to the sleeve and the placement of the print elements take it to another level. I don't see this going out of my wardrobe rotation for quite some time!

I'm sure you will have noticed by now that I love pairing trainers with a dress, but it just didn't seem quite right with the frock and so some black boots were definitely in order. I wanted something simple but with an added flourish so these Juniper Curvy Calf Wide Fit Boots (£40.00*) fit the bill perfectly. The stepped front finishing just below the knee and the elasticated panels add that little extra spark I was looking for and the flat style in faux black leather makes them comfortable and practical - perfect for walks in the Autumn wind and rain.

Another section that I love to shop at Fashion World is their lingerie - click here to take a look. It has such a great range featuring lots of brands and there are lots of gorgeous choices no matter the shape or comfort level you're looking for. They even have some of GabiFresh's collection with Playful Promises which has to be some of the most beautiful plus size lingerie I've seen in years!
