The Sequin Dress | Fashion

I know. I know.
It's amazing isn't it!?!

So, I don't think there has ever been a point in my life where I thought it would be a good idea to wear sequins, they would be itchy and they certainly wouldn't look good on my fat body, they would ping off everywhere and furthermore, have you seen them online? They are so expensive! well all the nice ones are anyway, I could  never have afforded one without robbing a bank and even then when would I wear it?

Claire Richards and Fashion World have have saved me the jail time and now I don't have to rob a bank to own a beautiful sequin dress. The Emerald Green Sequin Dress | Link  is part of Claire Richards new range at Fashion World and ranges from size 12 - 32, Now anyone who just read that and thought " no size 32 woman would ever wear that! " Let me stop you right there sugar-nipples. I'm wearing a size 28 in it and lets talk honestly for a moment. We can see I'm a big girl. We can see I have lots of lumps and bumps and cellulite, and you can see I have one GIANT FINE ASS up in this dress.  I'm going to have the same body in everything I wear so I never let my size stop me from wearing what I want. Granted, reflecting green sequins aren't going to be as flattering as black but I think its safe to say, anyone that knows me or hell even if you don't you can see by my hair and piercings, I like to stand out. I like to be different and I hate conforming to society. I may have to wait for a Christmas party, wedding or some form of fancy night out to wear it but when I do, heads will turn, and I can promise you I'm going to rock it out so hard!

So lets talk about the dress for a second before this turns into a body confidence post haha, Firstly, If you are thinking of getting it SIZE UP! The dress is fitted but has a tiny bit of give to it which you'll need putting it on. I'd also reccomend getting youself some spanx because sequins may be pretty but they sure as hell wont hold you in. If you are a plus size woman watching this and you have a muffin top ( that bit of flab over your tummy, under your boobs ) DEFFO get spanx if you want this dress, I'm wearing mine under my dress and its helped smooth out my muffin top and basically made it look more flattering.

The dress is lined so no risk of scraping sequins while your wearing it which was a lovely surprise, I think the arms will come up a little short on normal people, I have stupidly short T-rex arms and these sat quite nicely but those with long arms, just a heads up :) Lastly I LOVE the neckline of the dress, It scoops both at the front and the back and the more I wear it and see myself in it, the more fabulous I feel in it.

I'd style it with plain black pumps, and big hair or a top knot, lots of winged eyeliner and depending on what colour my hair was at the time, maybe a gloss on the lips, or a nude.

  2. I enjoyed reading this post! You are so right that we all should wear what ever we want!
    Of course you will stand out, but that's logical, it is a sequin dress, that always gets attention! I like the idea of a sequin dress for a party, I will consider to find one for myself! :)

    1. I'm so glad you did Marky, Don't get me wrong I know alot of people might not have the confidence to just have that " I don't care " attitude when wearing something like this but the idea is to get rid of that current attitude as its holding you back.

  3. wow you look gorgeous hun! the belle of the ball for sure :)
    I love a bit of sparkle!

    1. Aw thanks so much Melissa! I love a bit of sparkle too! Let's hope when I wear it I really am the belle of the ball hehe xx

  4. Love this dress, and love your attitude! It's silly to avoid certain clothes because of your shape or size, different clothes won't change that! And I just really genuinely love the colours in this dress, it is actual mermaid material.

    1. Thanks so much India! It's a shame people of all different shapes and sizes are made to feel they can't wear certain things, If everyone just wore what they wanted we'd all feel amazing! xxx
