I have a great stepdad now, N. He married my mum 3 years ago and I gained all his family too - including my stepsister. However, she had a falling out with her dad last year and we haven't seen her since then. So Father's Day is hard for N, too, since he won't get anything from my sister. Lee and I always give him something - this year I bought him some fudge, and some DVDs which I took a chance on - and thankfully he didn't already have any of them! I bought Slumdog Millionaire, Taken, and Angels and Demons.
We went out for lunch to a pub near here. It's a very basic place, but very cheap and everything is homemade, so we like it. I had garlic mushrooms, lasagne, and chocolate fudge cake! I'm stuffed!
Anyway, this is what I wore. I loved the new Clements Rebeiro collection at Evans, and I asked my mum if she would so kindly buy me one of the dresses, and she decided to spoil me and say yes! I ordered the daisy print and the lip print dresses, and was so excited when they arrived,
However, the 26/28 (damn dual sizing!) did NOT fit me. A lot of people have said that this collection runs small, and it seriously does. I sent both dresses back; I was bummed out!
Anyway, then I went to Meadowhall with my friend Chloe and saw this dress in the Evans store. I tried on the 30/32 and it felt a lot better on me. It was a bit shapeless, though, so Chloe foisted this belt upon me, and it did the trick.
This is what I looked like taking a selfie in the mirror
I felt like this was quite short on me, but I love this dress so much that I decided "Whatever!" and wore it anyway. Plus I was only walking from the car into the pub.
Here I am outside the pub, Lee took this photo for me. Legs out for real!
With a bit more wearing I'm sure I'll gain in confidence, I love this dress so much!
