I've Got The Eye Of The Tiger

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to pick up this amazing dress from Chattermonkey at a plus size clothes swap. Whilst most of the prints I wear tend to be more vintage inspired, this loud, fun tiger print screamed out to me and I was delighted when I wriggled my way into it and found that it passed the dreaded "will it fit over my boobs?" test!

I teamed it with a pair of heels which I also picked up at the clothes swap. The swaps are such a fantastic way to recycle your wardrobe and go shopping without spending a penny and I cannot recommend them enough. The next one is coming up soon in March, with full details found here!

Dress: Thrifted from Fat Positive Clothes Swap
Tights: M&S
Shoes: Thrifted from Fat Positive Clothes Swap
Necklace: Bete Noire
Bracelets: Vintage
Cross Body Bag: New Look via ASOS

The bag I'm wearing with this dress has become my go-to bag for when I want to stay hands free. It has taken me ages to find a cross body bag which fits comfortably across my chest, and is the perfect size for cramming all those handbag essentials in.  The bottom of it is wider than the top, making this pint sized purchase bigger than what it first appears. I can get my diary and large purse in there with ease, as well as chucking in my cosmetics and all the other bits and pieces I carry around with me day to day.

Until next time,
