My Favourite Shops Part Two: Boohoo

I bought my first item from boohoo around six months ago. The delivery time  was so quick and the product so beautiful I have just kept going back for more. I now own a large number of skirts and multiple dresses. There is such a huge range of colours and their style steals are a truly great range of basics. Here are a few things on my to buy list:

black dress boohoo

The dress is the perfect LBD the wrap design helps flatter a larger tummy and the low cut neckline emphasizes a great bust. The cross over hem keeps it short and sexy yet as it is longer at the back covers my ample bottom. I would wear this with coloured tights and a great pair of heels.

boohoo skirt

This skirt could be the love of life! I adore skater style skirts they skim over my belly just right and pull in my waist creating a great silhouette. Photographic prints always stand out and can create the prettiest pieces. I would wear this with a long black sleeved top and a faux leather gilet. A pair of flat black shoes with big bows would keep it girly.


boohoo cardigan


It is definitely big cardigan weather at the moment and here is the perfect example of one. The aztec print is very on trend and I cannot think of a better way to wear it than currently shown. The wool looks nice and soft, this could also go with a nice skirt low cut top and heels.


Are there any other items that you have noticed?

My Favourite Shops!

As a size 14-16 it is essential that I get the right material and the right fit. I am also on a fairly strict budget (with only around £100 a month to spend) and so price is a huge factor. My first three blog posts will feature my three favourite stores.

New Look

This is definitely worth a look online as they have so many exclusive products and a huge range of sizes available. The products arrive very quickly, I normally have them within five days and if you spend £45 or more they offer free  standard delivery.


Red Peplum Dress

This red dress is very simple but certainly does the job. The stretch jersey material, not only makes it comfy but also clings to the curves perfectly. The dress nips me in at the waist perfectly and the slight show of cleavage also adds to the sexy. This can also be a great work basis for a slightly more casual office.


Black lace kimono

If you are like me and not entirely happy with your arms, but still want to enjoy beautiful dresses this could be for you. The black lace is beautiful and light, and shows enough skin while helping flatter insecurities. The fringing detail also keeps it young and current.

Black Leather Look Skirt


A bit of leather look? Well yes please! This skirt is stunning, it holds you in at the waist and then flares out to cover the tummy. This looks best with a tucked in chiffon blouse , but also works well with a rock band tee and fashion tights. Who said plus size can’t be sexy?
