OOTD: (I wish there was) 17 Sundays in a row
Hello my lovelies,
Welcome to ‘the other side’! My blog is now on my own server space, which means I can do whatever I want.. haha ;D. What do you think of my new layout? I designed it myself, excluding the lovely illustration of me, which was drawn by my friend Tris. It was great to design a website layout again, since I usually do smaller scale stuff at work. Sadly I can’t code much, so the lovely Michelle coded a WordPress theme for me according to my design. I’m really happy with it myself, and I hope that you all like it too :).
And like I said in my last ‘announcement-post’, if you were a follower of my posts/comments, please take the time to register again, since that information was lost in the server-move. Thank you :).
So, to my outfit then.. this might be my fave outfit post of mine so far. I’m absolutely in love with the dress, the shoes and the bracelet myself. ..Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself *rewinds*. I was browsing the 17 Sundays site a while ago and basically fell in love with everything. 17 Sundays is an Australian plus size brand with an attitude. They bring a lot of fun, fierceness and trendiness to plus size clothing and their collections are FABULOUS. My wishlist keeps getting more items the every time I visit the site, but right now on top of my list are the Take Me Away Crop Jacket and Too Shy Laser Cut Leather Skirt. Both of them are to die for, right? Sadly for my current shopping budget I could only consider the sale-department, but no worries there, that is FULL with amazing pieces too. I ended up ordering the Down By The Water Pool Dress and Complaint Department Beach Dress. Both of them are gorgeous and in the post I ended up wearing the latter.
17 Sundays have probably the best customer service I have ever encountered. They reply to tweets, give tips in the product descriptions (for example saying in that denim jacket that ‘if you want to wear it tight, size down’), and they also offer a free fitting service over email. That is absolutely amazing customer service, and guarantees that your postage fees won’t go to waste. Oh and you’ll get a smile on your face when you get your pretty package, see mine here :). I will definitely order from them again, the whole experience was only positive.. and hey, even though I wear a lot of Primark stuff, I’m happy to own some fashion all the way from Australia that I won’t see in every street corner here ;)!
Ok ok, enough rambling and to the outfit. I was adviced by 17 Sundays to size down on this dress, and I did and took AU size 22, which is an UK 20 according to their sizing chart. I’m happy I listened to their advice, since I could have actually gone even one more size smaller, but because of the length I’m happy in this size dress and just nipped in the waist with my trusty black belt. I ADORE the colour of this dress, it’s something between black, green and blue, and it’s totally unique and amazing. I think it fits my skin tone and hair colour really well, and basically I just LOVE it. And the shape and drapes of the dress complement my curves.. yeah, this might be my new favourite dress :). And what about the shoes? Aren’t they dreamy?! I saw them in Dani‘s denim skirt post and immediately clicked the link and saw that they were on sale and HAD TO get them too. They are surprisingly comfy for their height, and after realising that I had to order the orange pair too. Love! Let’s see the pics then.. and remember to scroll all the way down, you don’t want to miss that ;)
Dress: 22AU, 17 Sundays | Belt: from an Reiss skirt | Shoes: ASOS | Shamballa bracelet: cutey | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Pink Mallow (available in Boots)
I was recently offered a chance to review shamballa bracelets by cutey and of course I jumped at the chance! I don’t have many bracelets, mostly because they rarely fit my wrist. These shamballa bracelets are fully adjustable and come with nine gorgeous jewel encrusted beads. I’m completely in love with my golden bracelet, and it goes perfectly with this outfit, doesn’t it? If you love this bracelet.. how about a chance of winning your own? YES, I have one beautiful white shamballa bracelet to give away courtesy of cutey.
The giveaway is open internationally (I promised you that will happen the next time, didn’t I?), and all you need to do is to enter via the Rafflecopter below, and you can get up to 9 entries in. Good luck!
