Dollydagger White Cherry Gypsy Dress 18

A few months ago I visited the amazing Dollydagger store in Brighton.  Full of vintage-inspired clothing, accessories and footwear, the store regularly attracts customers from all over the UK and beyond.  I was like a kid in a sweet shop as I admired and tried on a variety of outfits - you can read about the fun I had in this post.

I was really excited when I was contacted by Dollydagger recently as they wanted to send me a dress to review.  I was offered the Gypsy dress: it's a 1950s dress available in a stunning range of prints and it was recommended that I should try the White Cherry Gypsy Dress in UK size 18 (£79).

Ewa Michalak PL Ametyst Bra 30L/65L and High Briefs 16/44

A while ago I was sent a selection of bra sets by the team at Ewa Michalak.  Three of them were of a similar cut so I reviewed one (the PL Milady) a few months ago and today I am going to talk about the PL Ametyst.

Collectif Dolores Doll Red Polka

If you're a regular reader of my blog you will be well aware of my love of Collectif's Dolores Doll dresses. I have accumulated quite a collection over the past few months and currently have more than 12 in my wardrobe.  The fit of the dress is almost perfect for me and I adore the feminine shape it gives.

I've previously written about the Dolores Doll in Navy Polka; today I will show you the dress in Red Polka.

How to wash lingerie and delicates

I've been meaning to write some 'how to' posts for a while now as many readers have been requesting them and today is the first of what I hope will be a useful series of posts and perhaps even a reference point of sorts.

I'm going to start this series by talking about washing.  It's really crucial to wash all clothing, whether lingerie, delicates or regular items, according to the instructions on the label.  These laundry symbols can be really tricky to decipher but I've found a great site called Super Savvy Me that has a post explaining what they all mean.  I had no idea about some of them so I will be examining my garment labels much more closely from now on to ensure I wash everything as per the instructions to prolong the life of my clothing and lingerie.  I also found this post very useful as it explains how to keep different fabrics in great condition, and this post on how to solve some common laundry issues.

Evans Scarlett & Jo Blue City Dress

You may recall a few months ago I reviewed the Scarlett & Jo Side Panel Dress from Evans. This dress was a big hit with me, both in the red/black and the blue/black colourways, as its shape worked so well on my hourglass figure.

Since then, there have been a few different colourways brought out, as well as the Blue City Dress, which has many similarities to its predecessor.

Curvy Kate Smoothie Bra and High Rise Briefs in Raspberry 30J/18

A little while ago I reviewed the gorgeous Curvy Kate Portia in Seafoam/Pink in 32K.  It was a lovely set and overall fitted me pretty well.

One bra I have been longing to try since it came out less than a year ago is the moulded cup Curvy Kate Smoothie.  I was actually the person to name this bra; Curvy Kate ran a 'Name The Bra' competition on their Facebook page and I came up with 'Smoothe Me'.  Now, that's not quite 'Smoothie' but apparently I inspired the eventual name and was credited with the win.  Yay!

Trying It On With Fuller Figure Fuller Bust's Pinup Girl Clothing Collection

Have you ever wanted to try on your friends' clothes?  I often see my pals looking uber-glamorous and can get some serious dress envy...so anytime I get the chance to try things on for myself I leap at the chance! 

Back in March I had the pleasure of spending the evening with the beautiful Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust and her boyfriend, Robbie.  George made us a yummy dinner and then we talked for a while before I could resist no longer and proceeded to raid her wardrobe!
