Clothing at Tesco: Stella Morgan Ruche Sleeveless Dress

When I was at Plus North in early July, I was fortunate enough to win a £100 online voucher to spend on the Clothing at Tesco website.  I was really excited about this - it's always great to have free clothes!  And I hadn't looked on the Tesco site for some time so I was looking forward to being able to take my pick from the available items.

A few weeks after the event, I sat down and had a good look on the Clothing at Tesco site to decide what I would like to try.  I knew I was looking for a dress from the site and there was a great selection to choose from.

In the end, I went for this beautiful Stella Morgan Ruche Sleeveless Dress:

Monsoon Teal Viper Dress

When I was up in Leeds in July for Plus North, I had a couple of shopping trips to the wonderful White Rose shopping centre.  I visited various stores whilst there, including the fabulous Evans, but this post is about a gorgeous dress I managed to snare from Monsoon.

I can't say I am a regular shopper in Monsoon as the few times I have been in there I have not found anything I liked.  However I was delighted to find that this teal Viper dress was in the sale for £27.50, reduced from £55:

Esty Lingerie - blog, forum, competition and Flirty Thirtys!

Have you heard of Esty Lingerie before?  They are an online lingerie boutique specialising in independent designers.  I have been following them on Facebook and Twitter for a while now and am always excited by their posts and updates.

They have their own gorgeous lingerie collection which is handmade in the UK, as well as stocking other brands. All in all, they have some very beautiful and appealing items on offer.  For me personally, I am sad that they don't have any bras in my size...but there are plenty of other things available to keep me happy, including basques, corsets, bodystockings, hosiery and swimwear.

Freya Limbo Bikini

Summer's here!  Well...August is here.  Unfortunately the weather in the UK has left much to be desired for the last few months and there have been few opportunities for people to soak up the sun at the seaside, at the park or in the garden.  That is, until this weekend when the weather has miraculously improved and we're having a mini heatwave!

The previous poor weather hasn't stopped me from poring over the latest offerings from the various lingerie companies and one of the bikinis that has caught my eye this season is the delectable Freya Limbo.

Gok Wan for Simply Be Pull Me In Pants

You may have previously read about the wonderful time I had earlier this year when I attended the launch of Gok Wan's new shapewear range for Simply Be - and I even got to meet the man himself!



Since then, the range has been expanded to include some really beautiful items.

We Love Colors Hosiery

Since I started wearing dresses and skirts around two years ago (yes, I really had spent the vast majority of my adult life wearing trousers as I believed that skirts did not suit/would not work for me), I have been a fan of tights.  I would wear black or natural shaping tights under my maxi skirts and dresses, but as I did not wear skirts any shorter than ankle length I had never considered coloured tights before now.

However, all that changed when I was at Plus North last month.  I had the opportunity to try out a few different items from the wonderful We Love Colors range, thanks to the gorgeous Toni, and I leapt at the chance.  We Love Colors sell tights, fishnet items and socks for women, men and children.  They have a specific section for Plus Size Hosiery which comprises tights, footless tights and fishnet pantyhose.

Simply Be Glamorosa Dress in Very Voluptuous

I have got lots of different dress reviews on my blog - from maxi dresses to fitted dresses and flared dresses.  But all of these dresses have something in common: they are all made from either jersey or viscose/elastane, which are both very thin fabrics.  With the cooler months heading towards us at top speed, I have been turning my attention to items available in thicker fabrics which are more suitable for cooler temperatures.

Thankfully, Simply Be have released their clothing and footwear collections for Autumn/Winter 2012.  And what a lot of beautiful items they have for us all!

Moda Printed Jersey Dress by George at Asda

I went shopping yesterday and happened to visit a nearby Asda superstore.  You're probably wondering why I am talking about a supermarket on my blog...but here in the UK supermarkets no longer just sell food and drink.  For several years now they have been expanding into new markets, including electricals, banking, toys, books and - hurrah - clothing!

'George' is the name for the range of clothing available at Asda.  I have blogged about them before because they have a wide range of clothing in many different styles and all at great prices.

A few days ago, I had a conversation with the gorgeous Kitty over at Undercover Lingerista about some of the dresses on the George website.  One which had caught her eye was this Moda Printed Jersey Dress:
