ASOS try on

ASOS try on

Sooooo I have a big night out in a few weeks!

(Follow me on insta & Twitter for photos! @lauramcfabulous )

I am looking for a party dress so went straight to asos!

For once it was not successful. Here’s my haul, from most hated to maybe!

Club L skater dress with Angel Sleeves
(I am trying on the size 22)

You can see by my face that I hate this dress. 

I’m sorry asos, but it feels so cheap!! The drop waist does nothing for a big girl like me. It makes my hips stick out in a big square and I look like a table.

I do however love the pattern.

Not for me.

Yumi plus belted dress with drop hem, in blossom print
(I am trying on a size 24)

I love this dress. I love it on the model. I hate it on me. 

The pattern is beautiful, and the quality is good.  However the front is a little shorter than I would be brave enough to wear. The cut of the waist seems to be pronounced and with the belt, bunches up and gives me more saddles bags than I actually own. 

I believe that I am now between sizes. You can see that the top half of the dress is sagging, but the size down was too small.


Yumi plus skater dress with lace inserts
This is the maybe.

(This is the size 24)

I like this and went for the 24, because it looked better once I had pulled in the tie back.

I like this one- again good quality and a nice fit. But again I am worried it is a little short!

I still do not feel that I have found my party dress though! The hunt continues!!

Show me your plus size party dresses!

Work night out #ootd #motd

Work night out #ootd #motd

So, as always, I’ve been away all week working! It’s been a crazy few weeks and I was looking forward to curling up in front of the TV on Friday night. 

However, I had forgotten that there was a works ‘doooooo’ on Friday night, and was slightly panicked when I got to the office on Friday morning! 

Normally I need about a week to prep! Hair, nails, skin, tan, outfit…. 

I literally had time to get home, shower, make up, dress and out the door! 

I also realised that I need to get a grip on myself- I have plenty of clothes to wear, lots of make up to slap on and one day hair styles better then fresh- I can do this!

    

 

  • Eye shadow- l’oreal/urban decay/Bobbi brown
  • Eye liner- collection 2000 liquid
  • Mascara- double wear Esteè Lauder
  • Lashes- allure
  • Eyeshadow primer- two faced.
  • Foundation- always double wear Esteè Lauder
  • Bronze and high lighter- No.7
  • Lips- avon matte- mauve matters

  
 I was quite pleased I managed to get that much make up on in such a small amount of time!!

Again, I wore the Yumi plus dress from ASOS curve.

  
I’m afraid I only had time for a classy toilet shot!

The bag is £6 from Matalan- current stock.

The shoes are clarks – but I got them from the Ty Hafan charity shop in Caerphilly for £6 brand new! 

We went to tiger tiger in Cardiff which I wasn’t looking forward to as we had a disappointing Christmas party there last year. However, I must say we had a brilliant night this time round! 

  
What’s your go to look when time is limited?

Have a great weekend

Ladies night

Ladies night

There is nothing we love more in the valleys then a ‘ladies night’.

This party bus nonsense you see is not for us. Who poles dances in a pink bus going down the M4? No one that’s who- it’s made up for MTV!

A group of ladies of all ages get together in some where like a working men’s club, and then the fun begins!

It’s simple, harmless fun but my god you will laugh until your sides hurt!

This is how my night started:

 

Then we had a bit of this:

 

 

Then we had the most fabulous drag queen, the glorious gypsy d’vine!

 

And then the big finish….

 

 

I have not had such good fun in a looooooong time! 

It’s great to get together with the girls and forget all the things that are on your mind and just have fun!

From the youngsters to the silver foxes, we had a ball!

What’s your favourite night out?
