Whatever happened to the heroes..?

Heels: Topshop
Velvet Dress: Clothing at Tesco
Earrings: New Look
Floral Faux Fur Coat: Oasap*
I have to admit, I took these photos in the run up to Christmas, before the weather turned quite so hideously rainy. I haven't dared wear this faux fur coat in the rain, as I don't think it would last very long.

I struggled to decide whether I thought it was cute or awful, but now that it's actually here I really like the floral print adding a little colour to the fur. I'm not sure that it photographs all that well, though. 

This was also the first wear for this blue velvet dress I'd picked up a while back from Tesco. I think I like it, the colour is a rather lovely jewel tone, but I'm not sure that the fit is that great on me, all I think when I look at these photos is about how obvious my fat waist and horrible stomach look. Not good. You can tell I'm not starting the year on a body-confidence high, can't you? 


  1. you should not be worrying about your looks at all. first off, you are gorgeous! secondly, this outfit is so pretty! i think that jacket goes well with your dress and those awesome heels! :)

  2. God I love your coat! It's frickin' fabulous! Good buy :-)

  3. What fat waist?! I don't think we're looking at the same pictures. I love that dress on you, can't believe it's from Tesco!

  4. You don't have a "fat waist" or a "horrible stomach" at all! You have such a gorgeous figure, and look amazing in these photos! (Also I'm quite jealous of your amazing long legs!) Really love this outfit on you, but especially the dress- it's a beauty! xx

  5. I've never seen a floral faux fur jacket but it looks so cute, though definitely not to be worn in the rain! You shouldn't be so hard on yourself Char x
