[purchase/affiliate] The beauty well is dry! I just felt a bit ‘up to here’ with it this week so I’m doing a bit of an awkward, self-concious ‘what I bought in the sale’ post – opinions welcome on the red dress; lovely as it is I am not sure it is lovely on me but I’ve got a wedding to go to and I’m struggling to find anything even vaguely right.

Sale Success (At Last)

This pastel sweater was just a chance buy from Oliver Bonas. It’s never seen a thread of wool but nonetheless seems like the perfect cool holiday evening or summer’s end top to throw on over jeans, shorts or white linen joggers.

Sale Success (At Last)

I like a pastel jumper and they’re few and far between – even in winter they’re good to just break up the grey. It’s exactly half price at Oliver Bonas – RRP £50 but now £25 HERE. Mine’s a size 12 because I like them loose and there are still a few (at the time of writing) in all sizes left (not many).

frame jeans

To replace my most beloved pair of jeans (in the pastel jumper pics) it will cost £280 and I cannot!!! So I took a chance on Frame jeans from Yoox and I’m very glad I did. These are the jeans for you if you’re curvy – and short!


The denim is super soft – if you’re anything like me, your weight is fluctuating and these have the right amount of stretch, hold and softness to be kind on all the days. Net-a-Porter has Frame Le High Skinny cropped jeans in all sizes (miracle) that were originally £241 and are now £108 HERE. I know, it’s a lot (I got mine from Yoox for the slightly more reasonable price of £82) but I feel I’ve spent so much time looking for my original (AG) jeans and I wear jeans so much that it feels like money well spent at this point. The freedom of putting them on every day and they just fit right is worth its weight in gold.

M&S Dress

So, at the moment this is my only wedding option. I feel like I’ve looked at a thousand dresses. I am just not sure – this smocking trend doesn’t suit me really but maybe it’s me being self-conscious. I feel a bit booby in this. It’s £39.50 HERE in a size 12.
