12 Days of Holiday Outfits; Blue Velvet

Hey Loves,

We are on day 3! I couldn't wait to post this dress from Missguided plus size line. I wrote about this new line a few weeks ago and I knew from then I wanted this dress. If you haven't seen it, check out my post on Missguided +. But I was a bit nervous because I've seen a number of people post this same dress although it wasn't in this BEAUTIFUL cobalt blue dress. It does come in a wine color as well as black. But you all know me, I had to get this in blue.

Dress: Missguided| Fishnets & Booties: Torrid| 
These fishnets are SUPER old. I purchased them from Torrid when I was in college. They've been through hell & back with me, and still gets me compliments. Torrid is one of my favorite places to but plus size fishnets. They fit great, they last long (for me at least) And they're always unique & trendy.
 My booties are just as old as my fishnets. Also purchased at Torrid I got them my senior year of college, I wore them to our homecoming dance. And I must praise Torrid because these booties will be 4 years old in February 2015. To have shoes last years on end, definitely says something about Torrid. I did get them in a size 10 although I technically wear and 11. But these are quite wide so they work out perfectly.
Needless to say, I do really love this outfit. The dress is comfortable. I will say that this dress does run big, I suggest going with a size down. Keep in my when shopping Missguided plus, it is a UK brand meaning you have to be careful about sizing. I suggest that you make sure you select US as your country (if you like here obviously). US sizing is 4 sizes smaller than UK. For example size US 16 is a UK 20. 

There you have it loves. I'll see you in outfit number 4. Until next time loves.
