Principles by Ben de Lisi at Debenhams Mac

I have always struggled to find a raincoat that works for me.  Either the waist is enormous but the bust fits well, or the bust area is too small but fits on the waist.  And what about the hip area?  Just as troublesome - either the buttons pull it too tight or there is a ridiculous amount of surplus fabric.

I have tried many different brands of macs over the years but had yet to find anything that worked for me, or that I really wanted to buy.

That is, until February this year when I attended Plus London Two and met the gorgeous Lorna.  She was wearing the most breathtaking coat I had ever seen - a Principles by Ben de Lisi mac.

Collectif Dolores Doll Navy Blue Polka Dot Dress

For some time now, I have been wondering if I should invest in a circle/swing dress.  I have been wearing bodycon-type dresses which follow my curves and show the shape of my figure, but I have always been drawn to the feminine and fun look of a circle/swing dress.

Back in April this year, I was lucky enough to try on some of Georgina's Pin Up Girl Clothing Heidi dresses.

George At Asda Moda Floral Jersey Wrap Dress

I've made no secret of being a huge fan of George at Asda clothing and in particular their Moda range.  It suits my tastes so well - simple, stylish, feminine and flattering.

I was over the moon when I discovered that they had brought out a new fabric design in their classic Moda Jersey Wrap Dress - this time heading in a floral direction!

When browsing the Simply Be website these And Abigail Strappy Wedges E Fit jumped out from the screen at me and I knew I had to give them a try for myself.

Simply Be Viva La Diva T-Bar Sandals EEE Fit

First of all I must apologise for not having posted for a couple of weeks.  Things got really hectic with My Blog's First Birthday Giveaway, as well as with work and my personal life, which has meant that I needed to take a break for a little while.  Thank you for bearing with me - normal service will now resume :-)

Back in the summer, I was on the lookout for a dazzling outfit to wear to a posh do I had to attend with work.  Not only did I need a frock, but also shoes to match.  It's always a bit of a quandary with an outfit - is it best to pick the shoes first or the dress?  I daresay the majority of people would say the dress, but for me it can often be best to start with the shoes.  

The reason for this is that I have VERY difficult feet.  Here are my main issues:
