So for my New Years outfit 2014 I choose to wear my newly purchased Live Unlimited Dress from the plus sized range at Wallis and paired it with my Beth Ditto Evans Leggings, cowboy boots and my New Black Faux Fur and Boucle Coat all from Evans.
I’d had my hair cut prior to Christmas at Freddies Hair in Rawtenstall , loving the cut, Matt the senior stylist there is amazing bells. ( BTW the King of the jungle gets his hair cut here as well oooh how posh am I lol)
Makeup – Eyeshadow is a combination of Clinique and Chanel Smokey Eyes. Lipstick is Chanel Allure Passion 13. The Perfume is Chanel Allure my total favorite and thanks to my hubby for buying it for my birthday on Christmas Eve :0) .
I felt just amazing, the cut of the Live Unlimited dress is really good in that it enhances rather than detracts from your curves. Its cut so there’s more room in the hip/bum area which is great for apple and pear shapes. The dress itself is brightly colored in orange, beige, black and purple, which is just perfect for me as I love to wear brighter colors. I wore the dress all night ,it never creased and I felt really cool considering I was doing a lot of dancing oh and eating.
On the eating note, we had a Thai meal at The Three Monkeys in Todmorden and oh my goodness it was rather rather lush, a starter and then for the main green thai chicken curry yum and very healthy. Such a great night , amazing food , fantastic service and great music really enjoyed it.
Anyway back to the Live Unlimited dress, I particularly loved the sleeves on this dress , they are extended in length and reminded me re the style of kimono sleeves without the bagginess, very flattering indeed.
I’m 5:8 and the length of the dress ( size 20) for me was spot on landing above the knee. I know some ladies out there are not keen on showing their legs but for me I don’t mind as I think my legs are one of my best features lol, plus it gets the hubbies blood racing ha ha.
As mentioned earlier I paired the dress with my Beth Ditto leggings from Evans a few seasons ago, cowboy boots and the totally lovely Coat from Evans the Black Faux Fur and Boucle Coat. So more on the coat.
The coat as you can see is collarless, the main body of the coat is faux fur with the sleeves consisting of boucle fabric which is very on trend. The coat is again really flattering and has hidden pockets, fastens via hooks and sits at thigh length. Last night it was particularly cold and windy and this coat really kept me lovely and warm all night long. The coat feels really luxurious and I felt very smart. This style takes me back to the Seven days when we saw tremendous designer type pieces. Evans do seem to be getting back on track and certainly with this coat I think they are getting there.
So let me know what you thought of my New Year outfit, I loved it and I hope you all do too.
