Hello, hope you're all cosied up on this cold, wintry night. It's beginning to feel more like winter and the Christmas panic has set in already, that I may not be organised in time! I know it's a month away, but November sped past and there's the dreaded card writing and wrapping to come! I have an appointment next week then that'll likely be me for the rest of the year, I shan't be out. That might sound strange, but after a couple of years of only getting out once every couple of months or so, I'm used to it. We were supposed to be spending Christmas with my sister and her family like we do (every alternate year), however we've had to improvise this time, as I won't be able for the short journey. The thought of getting to spend all day in my jammies, despite doing that every day, is most appealing I have to say! Anyway, this outfit, I suppose could be Christmas party inspired, it's my plus size look of the week.

Wow, Dolcis are a bit of a blast from the past eh? I spent a lot of time (and money) in there during my late teens/early twenties! Nowadays I don't think there are any stand-alone stores left (I could be wrong), but the brand itself is still available.

Shoes: Blue Heel The World Irregular Choice
Hola, how are you all this week? These are a pair of shoes I've had for some time, I loved them the moment I spotted them in the SS15 range. They also came in red and once I had the blue pair, I wanted those too, but missed out on them.

Hello, hope you are all well today. This post is a little late and it's your weekly Irregular Choice post for last week! Don't worry, there is another one coming tomorrow for this week.

Oh I'm suffering today. We had gale force winds last night (scary blustery and worse than any of the 'named' storms recently) and a wooden sign we have on our shed had come unstuck and was swirling and battering against the wooden shed, but somehow still attached. My fear was it was going to break free and smash through any one of the many surrounding windows, plus I knew I couldn't sleep with that racket outside my window. I've realised my family can and will sleep through pretty much anything though. Anyway long story short, my sister and I traipsed downstairs and she went out into the cold to try and fix it (the shed was actually covered in ice it was so cold), back up and 5 minutes later it started again (which we knew it would as she couldn't get it off)! I had trouble falling asleep, then at half two was aware of my new noisy neighbours, who decided to congregate in their back garden (must've been freezing) and talk, laugh, play music and carry on, very loudly! I was furious. By half past four, it was still going on. I was really furious! I couldn't remember the non-emergency police number and figured they might not come out anyway, so suffered a sore head from lack of sleep all day today. Haven't seen a peep out of those neighbours today funnily enough. I don't even know what they look like, haven't seen them yet, but they made the same rumpus a few weeks a go, so are already in my bad books.

Wearing: Iron Fist Care Bear Point Heels*
Hello lovelies. If you read my review on Pink Haired Princess last week, you'll have known which shoes I was wearing for Shoesday Tuesday before this post! Courts from the new Iron Fist 'Care Bears' collection.

You can see my post on Pink Haired Princess as to why I'm posting so late (or early in the morning if you look at it that way). I wanted to challenge myself a bit with this look today, because it's rare I combine my once weekly, plus size look with the high-end prices. That's because there simply isn't the vast choice available in designer plus clothing or nearly as many high end brands that make larger sizes. I could talk for hours on the numerous reasons this is wrong, but I suspect you'll mostly agree. To make matters slightly more difficult, once I spotted these shoes, there was no way I wasn't using them today, but having something so specific and choices limited for clothing, I struggled a bit (especially as they are quite summery looking and obviously we are into winter fashion now).

Shoes: R2D2 Irregular Choice Star Wars
Hello lovelies, how are you all this week? We're in the midst of getting a new kitchen fitted, so we've been washing dishes in the conservatory, making 'meals' in my parents bedroom, using their en suite to fill the kettle and keeping a larder in the living room, fun times! There's been a bit of a mix-up with the sink not fitting the unit, so that's going to set things back a few days unfortunately, while we wait for a new one to arrive. It meant they finished early yesterday though and I could sneak off to re-shoot these photos as they hadn't worked too well last week. Not much better this time...I sound like a broken record, but I do hate the lack of natural light this time of year. Even as I was taking them, light was fading, so I was working at record speed!

I did a little reverse styling today for the luxe edition of TSGSI. I found this dress and just wasn't going to be satisfied unless it featured in this post today. Thankfully I easily found a suitable pair of shoes.

Oooh another contender for the Christmas party today! It wasn't my intention, but it happened. I think it's because I've been watching Christmas adverts today and our whole family have been making progress with their present shopping. The outfit comes in plus and regular sizes too, which is a bonus and it's utterly gorgeous.

I'm becoming very regular with my late night posts! I find I'm hard at it all day, but before I know it, it's getting really late and I've not published anything. Great for my international readers with time differences who get to read it first!

Shoes: Prada frilled cuff court shoes
Ooh I've been holding onto these photos for some time, as you can probably tell by the almost empty shoe room in the background! I bought them in...May I think, before my birthday and I kinda went crazy that week with the green satin and frill brogue Miu Miu and also a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood boots I haven't shown you yet. All sales buys obviously, you know I like my bargains!
With a busy week, I didn't have time for our 'luxe' edition of TSGSI at the weekend. However I was so pleased with the look I'd made, that I'm posting it today. When I began gathering items for this, something just clicked immediately and I knew exactly the direction it was heading. There was one item I suppose I 'compromised' on, but actually it's so fabulous, it totally worked anyway (even if it wasn't what I had in my head originally). Considering these boots were the priciest in the Star Wars collection, I thought they'd fit in better with my designer look.
