The Snake Print Shift









Outfit: Wallis black bolero, Karen Millen black/blue/white snake print dress, New Look blue platform courts.


I have these heels in black too... I actually have two pairs of the black version... If my bank balance permitted it, I would get all the colours they made!

I wear black boleros quite often... I don't always include it in my outfit description because I can never remember where I got my other one from...

As a curvy girl, my figure has quite a few "flaws" but the parts of my body that I am most self-conscious of are my arms. They are just too flabby so I prefer to cover them up with an easy black bolero...

I had split shifts for the first time ever today since the store opened until late tonight for an account holders' event. I was given the morning shift then the late night shift - it was weird going home for 4 hours before going back out to work...

We were asked to wear something smart but not too formal so after raiding my wardrobe again and again, I went with a bold print and bright shoes.

If I'm not mistaken, this dress is from Karen Millen's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I had actually forgotten how comfortable and flattering it is. It has a black panel down just one side of it...

I had just eaten dinner before my shift so I needed something stretchy but forgiving... This dress proved perfect.

At the end of my shift, I decided to peak at Oasis' sale rails since my staff discount will be officially ending this week. I found a dress to want:

I don't wear denim. I have one denim pencil skirt I seldom wear in my closet and that's it! Unless you count fake denim - my jeggings! So I've always thought that I need to find myself a denim dress to bring the fabric properly into my life...

(I seem to be slightly addicted to putting dots at the end of my sentences...)

Just want to thank all my followers for, well, following me!

It's amazing to log on to my Blogger account and see my number has risen!

Thank you! \(^_^)/
