I’m back… with a new frock! 

I’m back… with a new frock! 

It’s been a little while, well a long while and soon I can explain where been, but we shall save that for another day! 

Any way I simply must show you this Dress I purchased from a company via their face book page Curv’i’licious


Isn’t it fabulous?!

I paid approximately £30 with postage and could have returned it if it it was unsuitable.  I chatted to the owner and she was super helpful even with all my questions! I have a particular material I avoid, I hate pleats at the waist, and the list goes on! 

This cold shoulder dress has a beautiful bright pattern which I adore! I am wearing a size 22 and felt extremely comfortable!

I’ve teemed it with bright pink strappy sandals from New Look which were £11 in the sale and are available Here.

I also managed to find a handbag in the exact same colour at a charity shop for £3.

As you can tell, I’ve also had a tan! Well a spray tan! I had an express tan at La Mia Bella at a bargain cost of £12 and if your local to Rhonda Cynon Taff you can visit the salon Here.

Overall I felt great about my outfit and had a fabulous night out! I won’t lie- my feet are still crying from those shoes so maybe a little gel pad would help out next time! 

Check out my Instagram for some cheeky snaps of my night out! @lauramcfabulous

Lots of love

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

#ootd birthday lunch to dinner

As I haven’t been very wel for a while, I have had plenty of time to shop on the Internet to find some clothes to wear for my birthday! 

Here is my day look:

  

  • Kimono-Rogers & Rogers 
  • Vest- Evans
  • Cropped trousers- TKMaxx
  • Shoes- M&S

I felt comfortable yet glam is this outfit! I will defiantly be wearing this again!!

Evening:

   
  

  • Dress-ASOS
  • Shoes- Clarkes

I wasn’t sure about this dress until I put it on! I loved it!

Because you can tie it at the waist it gives you a great shape, and the cross over at the boobs makes the girls look fabulous!

I have a large chest so I did fee that I needed to pin myself into this so that I didn’t fall out at any time.

However, an extremely comfortable dress for a night out- highly reccomend!

What have you worn for a special occasion?

Never too old to learn xx

#OOTD work conference 

#OOTD work conference 

depending on where you work, there may be a set dress code for a conference.

Where I work there seems to be a varied interpretation on ‘smart casual office wear.’

However, as this is a conference that I am running, I decided smart is the only way to go!

Here is my outfit for day 1:

  
Jacket and skinny fit trousers – Matalan

Top and bag – Next

Shoes – M&S

Necklace – Oasis

I love the bag because it gives that splash of colour!

What do you guys wear for a meeting at work? 

Stay fabulous
