FRONT PAGE NEWS…

As you all know I’m a massive fan of Beth Ditto. Shes unashamedably flamboyant about her fabulous figure. Ive added thse magazine covers because it shows how, even though thin may be in, Beth has that charasima that gets her not only in the magazine but on the front cover!

My favourite look has to be the front cover of LOVE magazine, showing all Beth’s curves in their pure beauty!

Vote at the end of post for which is your favourite…

MAKING A STATEMENT…

Ive decided this Christmas time that I’m going to buy one black dress and work if several different ways. From new shoes to statement necklaces, each look will be completely different with just solme simple accessory changing!

Firstly I’ve picked my favourite statement necklaces from the high street, which allows me to go inot shops that I would never normally try such as Urban Outfitters and Topshop. They both have some fabulous accessories, such as bags and jewellery but sadly, only go to a size 16 in clothing. Their loss though, not mine 🙂

Anyway, here are a few of my fav statement necklaces to spruce up any little black dress…

Dramatic Snow Queen Collar £60 Topshop

Black Satin Statement Necklace £45 ASOS

Statment Bib Necklace £29.99 River Island

Bronze Antique Necklace £5.99 Missguided.co.uk

FANCY DRESS

Its hard enough finding something glam to wear at the best of times, but when my work Christmas party decided fancy dress was on the cards, I managed to choke on the little bit of apple I was eating! What was I supposed to go as, other than a sack!

So I came across this frisky fancy dress website that offers fancy dress right up to a size 40. I chose a few and thought I’d see what you guys think. I always like to go all out with make up and hair when I’m partying especially this time of year so I’m looking at something to incorperate that.

Let me know what you think…
