2 x OOTDs – Yes, Really!

…Because you miss my mug, right? These pics are special as they were taken by my lovely mum in our garden – so obviously I couldn’t get too Vogue. Apologies for the picture quality – you can click on the images to get the full size versions…

Lace overlay Dress: Simply Be
Shoes: New Look
Necklace: Wee Sparrow

I’ve been buying clothes from Simply Be since I was a teenager, so I was super excited when they contacted me – they sent me this gorgeous dress I’d been eyeing for ages, from their Frock’n’Frill range. Frock’n’Frill is my favourite range in Simply Be at the moment though they have collections by Mica Paris, Anna Scholz and Joe Browns. Unfortunately while the dress was the perfect length on Valerie and a smidgen too short on Dee, I had to lop a good few inches off the bottom! But I think it’s the perfect length now, and I love it so much. It fits like a dream! The shoes are also wonderful:

Vintage style courts from New Look’s Wide Fit section.

I recently won my first ever competition = $50 worth of jewellery from Wee Sparrow – I didn’t even realise I’d entered! But I chose some lovely necklaces and this is one of them.

Dress: ASOS Curve
Heels: Evans

Words cannot express how much I love this dress. I love the fact that ASOS Curve had the balls to make it in the first place – not only do you have the outrageous ruffle, but both the front and back are fully ruched -the detailing is incredible. And you know what? It’s made of thick jersey knit, making it one of the most comfortable dresses I own. I have no idea when I’ll get to wear it in public but I’ll make an occasion if I have to!

Also, on the subject of ASOS Curve you should definitely check out the lovely Vanessa‘s blog – she’s their fit model and has really opened my eyes to the laborious processes retailers go through. Though I feel she should be their actual model as well as the fit model, she’s stunning!

Totally in love with these shoes – again, not only do they look fab, they’re really comfortable! A++, ASOS Curve & Evans!

    Wow. Both these outfits are just LOVELY. I am so in love with the first look and how vintage it is – the shoes just top the outfit, as does the jewelry. Amazing.

    No words can fully capture just how fucking great that black curve dress is. WHOA… look out New York! x.

  12. Kat Says:

    WOW! Both outfits look amazing! I love the ruffle dress. The shoes are really nice too.

    Wow. I never thought that ASOS dress would look good on anyone but you somehow made it work. Very cute!

    I want your lace overlay dress.

    I LOVE the first outfit – and the shoes are perfect! The asos curve dress is fabulous on you, too.

  16. Deena Says:

    You look fab in both dresses but I’m especially into the ruffle dress. Since seeing it on ASOS I’ve been hoping to come across someone plus size wearing it and you are wearing the hell out of it!

  17. Vanoue Says:

    Clap clap clap for both outfits! They are very different but you look amaizing in both dresses!

    oooooooh I love that black asos dress! I looked at asos’ curve and I wasn’t impressed…. I guess I’ll have to look again!



  27. Suburban Sweetheart Says:

    I ADORE the first dress! Beautiful.

  28. Fat Nurse Says:

    I now have “that” Asos dress (of course, would you really expect me to pass that up? Christ!) And I think it suits you wonderfully. The actual dress is made of a really nice material and the fact that it’s different makes it even more amazing :D You look beautiful as always Lauren.

    Love the second dress and shoes! You look great xo


  30. Spec Says:

    You look amazing! I love this dress on you!
    Your blog is fabulous!

  31. StephanieDJL Says:

    I love your outfits they’re always super feminine and fabulous! The second dress/shoes are especially amazing and the first dress looks perfect that length. Sad to hear that you won’t representing us Brits at YFF Con :( sending hugs your way!

  32. Liz Says:

    I absolutely love both of your outfits and you look amazing. There is a real movie star quality to both outfits, especially that Curve dress! :) I also really like the New Look shoes and have been pining over them ever since I saw them on your post :O

    I have the lace dress and I’m constantly trying to think of new ways to wear it because when I first bought it I wasn’t sure how to dress it down! I’m sure I’ll think of something, but my feeling is that it’s quite versatile :)


  33. ola Says:

    Hi, you look really nice in this dress but I was just wondering what size you got it in? We look about the same size, I really want the dress and I usually wear about a UK size 16 but because it only starts in a size 20 I’m a bit wooried it’ll be too big for me.

    • thepocketrocket Says:

      Hi Ola, I got the dress is a size 22 and it fitted me perfectly. It may work because it’s close fitting and made of stretchy material but if you’re overseas it might not be worth it… Have you had a look at ASOS’ main range? They don’t have exactly the same dress but do have some extravagant designs from UK 6 – UK 18?

      Sorry I can;t be of more help! Hope you find a knockout dress. xx
