Oh my gosh darling, this dress has to be one of my favourites of late. I've been pretty bored with a lot of the stuff that's coming out in my size at the moment, part of which is I think my age because I did the Nineties fashion thing IN the 1990's and it really doesn't hold that much appeal to me...! Plus I think my personal aesthetic is a bit more polished slash glamorous than a lot of what is in style right now. I'm just not a jeans and graphic tee gal, you know? 

It's quite clear from my wardrobe that I bloody love a shirt dress and when I see one in as wonderful a print as this I just had to snap it up. I've tried three things (I think..) from Dancing Leopard's plus size range so far and I've been impressed with each one. I would say their fit is on the generous size and the build and quality of the fabrics is really nice, alongside their use of clever comfort led detailing like the back of their belts having a stretch pleated section. I love this because it means when you sit the band expands so the belt doesn't feel like it's trying to cut you in half which can be the case with non stretch belted shirt dresses!

Obviously I needed to add a little bit of fun to the look so when this beautiful soft faux fur bag in a coordinating shade of blue popped up on ASOS I snatched it up, then teamed it with some M&S wide fit boots that I was thrilled to find on Vinted after I passed them up when I saw them in store and then regretted not buying! Isn't that just one of the best things about buying preloved?!
