valentine's day outfits!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
hi sweetlings.

sooo, i want to look dead nice on valentine's day! but is it me or are all the shops full of shite?

thats probably a bit of an overexaggeration but as an extremely curvy size 18 5"2 lady i'm not finding anything. me pal dragged me in topshop yesterday and it was enough to make me a bit moany.

on a brighter note, i found some wonderfully comfy and fun harem pants in primani which will be brilliant for lazing about the house as i often do.

sooo, where will you be shopping for lovely outfits?

i normally go to dorothyperkins.com or asos.com but nowt's caught my eye so far. harumphh.

ooh, and just to share my excitement, me and the manfriend are going to a dead posh hotel and for tea at an amazing chinese.

woop. share puhleez! xo

    theres nothing in the shops is there! iv been to the trafford centre twice this week (you know i love it) and have come away empty handed both times, yes thats me, EMPTY HANDED.

    the only place im seeing some alright stuff is asos, but you just never know what its gonna look like dya, it always looks nice on the model!

    you look sexy all the time anyways :D

    i think if youre curvy, then avoid satin because it will show off every single lump and bump you dont wanna show

    Aye, I think your boobies would need more than that ickle camisole for support :p. Is there not a DP which has it in before you buy it? I know that the small ones are crap (the one in Braintree only sells the basics stuff and not a lot of the actual nice stuff) but if there's a biggish one near you it might be worth going in to have a looksee.

    I'm sure you'll look schmexy anyway ;).
