New Start, New Clothes…

on February 25, 2015

Wednesdays are my day off from work, usually my day off in the week is used to sleep and rest. However today I decided to spend it a little bit different. I had a lie in, showered, GHD’d my hair and wandered over to the local ASDA.

I have always been a fan of George Clothing @ ASDA, it is well priced and good quality. I am also a fan as it goes up to a size 24.

My clothes at the moment are either too big or too small and full of holes as I seem to wear the same 5 outfits every week. Thought it was about time to update my wardrobe, make an effort and start loving my clothes and dressing up again.

My Haul

I had already bought some items online from George in the sale, so it seemed like a good idea to have a look at the clothes while I was there.

I love love LOVE this dress!!!

This dress was one of my purchases online, I follow George on Twitter and they retweeted another blogger who was wearing it. I fell in love and knew I had to have it 🙂 The dress was thick material which will be lovely for the next couple of months and it is really flattering.

I loved the pearl detail of the collar, such a gorgeous dress 🙂

My next purchase was this dotty shirt. Loved the colour. Reminds me of one of my dresses from New Look and will be brilliant for work.

I also got some other tops for work. The pictures below are my two favourite tops. Give me a stripey top and I’m happy

I will admit, I was only going to get clothes and then I saw this VERY VERY PRETTY BAG!!!!!!!

I am a bag lady and I love it 🙂

Bucket Bag

I had a bucket bag a couple of years ago which I loved. However I very stupidly left an apple in the bag and it wrecked my bag (read YUK!) so when I saw this I thought I deserved a little payday treat.

The one that got away

Another dress that I found through George’s twitter page. Such a lovely dress however it was too short on me! The joys of being plus size and 6 foot 2! Either clothes are too small, too large, too long or too short. I’m just glad that I’ve got some new clothes.

So it’s been a good day, I feel rested, chilled out and I’ve had fun 🙂

I’ve got some lovely new clothes, that haven’t cost me a fortune and made me feel good about myself.

It’s going to take more than one good day to turn things around for me. However as long as I keep trying and keeping my head above the water, I know I will get there.
