This post contains items gifted for editorial consideration and raved about.
I had been impatiently waiting. Waiting like a kid for Christmas day for a parcel in the post with all the new season goodness from 17 Sundays. I featured the items in the post last week and that parcel that FINALLY arrived contained the selections for me from the range.
Despite three-day old party hair and no Mr Suger the Photographer, I was determined to grab some photos so I could share the new goodness as soon as possible. If I thought I had been waiting, so were the folks on Facebook, and as I’ve said before I like to give the people what they want.
Introducing the hallway impromptu photo shoot. Black and white to hide a multitude of sins. The photos were taken quickly, but they show off all the awesome that is this outfit. These pants, oh my god, I die. The stripe tee, well you had to know I’d be a fan. Add to that some simple beads and pointy white shoes and hey presto an outfit is born.
As soon as I saw these pants on the runway at the Curvy Couture Roadshow I knew that we would be friends. I saw them in sneak peek photos from the brand and a crush was born. Faux leather joggers, in plus, finally. I fan-girled all over them. Then they arrived and my eyes misted over, I heard music build and I knew it. I was in love.
The team sent me my usual size in all items. The 22 in the pants and the large in the tee. You’ll note by the fit of the tee that they have done some rejigging of the BASIC sizing so the large better suits the 20/22 as it was always planned. They have added a size 12 too, such a win for our friends at the other end of the scale… Like my sister for example. I know she’s going to be STOKED.
