IGIGI Anastasia Gown in Ruby - Review

IGIGI very kindly sent me two dresses recently, the first was the amazing dress I wore recently to a wedding, you can see that review here.

The second dress I have been sent is the amazing Anastasia Gown in ruby.

Last weekend me and my husband celebrated out 10 year wedding anniversary and as 2012 has been a pretty bad year for us, we are planning a big night out in the new year with posh dinner and a show, so I have been looking for something really special to wear for ages and this fits the bill perfectly.

Just so you didn't have to wait until the New Year to see it I slipped it on for you so you can see just how amazing it really is!

It is a little long on me, but at only 5'2" I expected it so with a decent pair of platform heels it will be fine.

A close up of the lace overlay, can you tell my husband takes most of my pictures, sorry for the booby shot :) 

The lace detail is beautiful I just need to find a bra in this exact colour so the straps aren't so noticeable!

I promise though that as soon as things slow down a bit after christmas I will get more dolled up and do a real photo shoot for you.

This dress makes me feel elegant and beautiful, so I highly recommend a visit to IGIGI for your occasion wear.

Fatshion Faceoff - Red Shoes

Good evening, sorry for my short absence from my blog, I needed some time to recharge and get myself together as I have not been coping well with life recently and the amount of studying I needed to do had overwhelmed me slightly.

I am feeling much better and ready and raring to go again and what better way to come back but with a fabulous outfit and Red Shoes!

These shoes are very old I am afraid about 5 or 6 years old I think so not likely to find the exact ones, but they were from Debenhams which has a fabulous shoe department that I love!

The dress I am wearing is the one I picked up with my voucher for Excite clothing that I won on CurvyWordys blog competition and I love it, you can also see it on the gorgeous FullerFigureFullerBust in the Wine version of the dress which is still available online.

But back the the red shoes!

There is something about red shoes I love, I am instantly drawn to them in shops and always notice them on other people.
They are great for adding a splash of colour to an otherwise simple outfit and to be honest they look fabulous with most things.

I have to apologise for looking a little rough, but this is what happens when I hibernate for two weeks without seeing sunlight.

But head on over to the other ladies and see how they have worn their Red Shoes!

Barratts Menswear - Boots Review

I was recently sent a fabulous pair of boots for my husband to review by Barratts Shoes, Marc is not only quite tall and a plus male, he has big feet too, he is a 12, and while there are a few places that stock them the options are often limited.

When we headed over to Barratts we were really pleased to see a great selection which even goes up to a size 13 in some styles!

They are a fantastic Rich Brown Colour and have a slightly worn effect to the colour which look really good, the thing likes about them the most is the look equally good with his jeans as they do with his navy suit so a really good purchase!

Marc can be quite fussy about his shoes as he does not cope well with sore feet, he liked the fact these boots have padding around the top of the ankle and the sole while not very think is comfortable and sturdy and the boots are not heavy.

Marc made me wait to put the review up as he wanted some time to wear them about and to work to give a better review of them.

Comfort wise Marc said these are an 8/10, he would like slightly more thickness in the sole but otherwise fantastic!

Style he would give a 9/10 he loves the colour and the buckle detail.

Durability he said he would give them 7/10 as they scuff fairly easily but it isn't a huge deal as they have a worn look to them in the first place and it is easily fixed with a bit of polish.

To be honest Marc and the boots seem to be having a little love affair so I think it is safe to say he likes them and highly recommends them.

Head on over to Barrats and take a look at the selection of MENS boots and shoes, and while your there have a look at the WOMENS, we need a treat too!

Until Wednesday 19th December you can take 30% off everything with the code CRACKER.

Today is the last day for delivery before christmas if you are in NI, Eire and UK offshore location s and tomorrow if you are in the UK mainland.
