Ss17 Trends -Must have Mules 

Guys Mules are still the business.  They are even more trendy today than ever so they are definitely a MUST have! 

I love the cross mules and you can find a pair just about everywhere.  Well… unless your tall and have big feet then you might need to be a little more strategic about where you get your mules from.

I have been shopping the Dorothy Perkins, Primark and New look mules range for 2 main reasons.

  • They are affordable
  • They offer wide fit and size 9 shoes.

I reviewed the cross mules from my recent purchase. I love the vibrant colours which all three retailers offer in this style. I must say the yellow mules from Primark wins hands down.

Newlook have a slightly wider range of colours. However, I was a little disappointed that they only had size 8 available in the style I wanted and unfortunately it was very pinchy on my little toes. These shoe must have just been made small because I was able to fit into Primark and Dorothy Perkins size 8.

 I was please to find that Newlook do have other styles of mules in wide fit and size 9’s.  This  clip on pompoms add some fun to my mules. You can buys yours here.

Although the Dorothy Perkins crossed Mules are a little bit more expensive, they are worth the extra £££’s. These go up to a size 9 and probably have the highest heel of them all.

The cheapest of them all was of course from Primark, it cost a jaw dropping £10. These have been my most worn pair of shoes in the last few weeks and it is holding up pretty well.

Have fun shopping for Mules this season.  The New look and Dorothy Perkins style can be found here  and here.

See you soon.

Maximizing Maxi’s

As we approach what seems to be the end of the summer months here in the UK..😣😣.

I had to share a post on maxi’s… the ultimate summer piece.
We leggy beauties know how difficult it is to find maxi’s that are long enough.
I opted to shop from the tall connoisseurs here in the UK.

This garden maxi as its called is perfect for your garden parties and luncheons.  The subtle pinks and lilac flower prints makes it very feminine. We like👍.
The good news is  that you don’t have to wave floral prints goodbye just yet.  Long live the floral prints as they come in stronger and bolder for AW/15.

This dress speaks for its self. No fuss , no jewellery needed a very easy wear.

I am a huge fan of wrap front clothing  as it’s very flattering for the curvy lady.  That said, the neckline of this dress had to be pinned as it was too exposed.
While I felt this dress was a few inches shorter than I would have liked, it does show off the my metallic silver sandals perfectly and classic red pedicure.  Not so bad after all.

The halter and back detail on this dress was unexpected and a well received suprised.

Happy summering
