sweet summer.


After a long time in trousers, I’ve really been embracing dresses recently. Trousers will probably always be my one true love, but dresses have a real place in my wardrobe these days. Especially dresses from Monki. It breaks my heart that Monki don’t do plus sizes and the only reason I can wear their dresses is because a) I’m a smaller fat and b) their stuff is often oversize. I want brilliant designs and brilliant prints for all my fat babes. This particular dress is selling fast– I looked on the Monki site, on ASOS and in store and it was sold out everywhere. Lucky for me, one came back in stock on ASOS in my size and I made it mine. I just checked again and it’s sold out in every size on ASOS but 2 are available in a small and 2 are available in a large on Monki’s own site. It’s the perfect summer-casual dress that I can wear to work, wear for fun and take on holiday with me.

I’m totally in love with Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie. My love for Dragon Girl and Cruella is well-documented, but I recently picked up a third pencil and am so impressed with it. Walkyrie is such a wearable shade, and the formula is so light yet matte. It’s great for days where you don’t want to make a statement but still want to feel like you’re wearing something on your lips.
