Shoes: Rosie Cheeks, Rosanna Gault for Irregular Choice
Last week I wore my new Rosie With Love boots and today I have Rosie Cheeks to show you. I reviewed them in more detail here, but I'll talk more about the fit today. Before they arrived I expected a similar fit to my original Rosy cuffed courts, but they are completely different. Rosy were quite snug on me, especially across the top at the widest part of my foot. If you look at the shoe, the bit where you insert your foot, basically looked like a hole cut out of the uppers, whereas the top edge of the new shoe is much more shapely this time. It appears to be lower cut at the front and definitely higher at the sides towards the back end of the shoe. Aesthetically it looks much prettier both on and off the foot, but it is causing some issues.

Shoes: Red Rosie With Love, Rosanna Gault for Irregular Choice
Busy day today, so I'm just going to jump straight into it. Apologies first-off for the clashing pyjamas, but I've really overdone it the past couple of days trying to get all these photos taken, so I was unable to get back upstairs and get dressed. The light was also fading (later delivery than I hoped), but I really wanted to get these photos up today.

Shoes: Irregular Choice Santa's Ninth
I've been dying to show you this full outfit as it's definitely become one of my favourite's of all that I've ever worn on the blog. It all started last year with the beautiful 'Alpine' print at Lindy Bop. It was love at first sight, but given that it was pre-Christmas, money was tight and I couldn't buy it right away and it sold out. I'd really wanted the Gilda design with button front and collar. They did have the one that came with the jacket left in my size, so as I'd had my heart set on wearing this print last Christmas, I bought that. It was beautiful in the flesh, but not a great fit on me. The dress was too tight on the bust (to the point I couldn't breathe and half my boobs were hanging out), but a bigger size would've been too big at the waist and the jacket was actually a little large (and very boxy) on me and because they came as a set, you couldn't do anything about that. The dress itself looked stunning (though indecent because of the fit) but see when you put the jacket with it, WOW! It was like super, super, amazing. However because of the fit issues and fact I just don't suit jackets, I returned it. I even bought the skirt (was desperate for something) in the same print later and it drowned me (so I returned that too), but Gilda never came back. Until this year (well last year)! I snapped it up right away to save for this (last!) Christmas. When I'd wanted to wear it in 2015, I'd just bought the Rudolph furry shoes and thought they'd be perfect together, but I had to wait and see what 2016 would bring and along came Santa's Ninth.

Hello, how is this week treating you so far? I've been super productive, so long may it continue! Well it actually did, until right now. I have a sold out item in my set (because I made the sets last weekend) and I haven't replaced it. I will provide a couple of alternatives that are available to buy, but I'm battling the tiredness after exerting myself showering today, so there you go! This is my high-street outfit and you can find my plus size one here and high end here.
