Fa(t)shionologie - A Day At The Races

Monday, April 15, 2013

Hello Lovelies, 

It's time for another installment of Fa(t)shionologie

Fatshionologie is a blogger style challenge born out of a discussion on twitter in the hopes that it would help us create exciting new content for our blogs as well as show that each new style 'theme' can be be rocked by a variety of different body shapes! 

"A Day at the Races"

This month we decided to go with a topical theme as it was the Grand National last weekend. 

I loved this theme, I've never been to the races and I needed my outfit to be work appropriate.

I'll admit to googling race and google images seemed to be full of the tango face of the races. That look really isn't me so i delved into the depths of my wardrobe and found one of my favourite dresses from last year.

The photo really doesn't do the colours justice. Please excuse the hair (it's post work) 

The dress is from Peacocks  and was around £9 in the sale, as it is still blooming freezing I wore it with my new Cardigan from Tesco £7 in the sale and to keep it all in place the belt you have been a million times before from the Leeds Clothes swap in January.

It is traditional to wear a hat but sadly hat's tend to be frowned upon as office wear (and to be honest it is only bennie hat weather) I decided to wear my new brooch, its almost a rossett so maybe I won the National?!?!!? 

The brooch is stunning and came from Sarah who runs Pookledo she gifted the brooch to me and I love it. I met Sarah at the clothes swap in Leeds and sat next to her at the meal. she very kindly offered me an Item out of her Etsy shop. I loved this brooch from the moment I saw it. I feel very grateful to have met some lovely people through blogging and If you like it please check out her other items.
