My birthday outfit of the evening...

It's my birthday!! :) My actual birthday, not my blogs birthday... and I have been fretting for weeks about what to wear as I knew that I would be going out for a couple of hours in the early evening to Chiquitos so although I really wanted to wear one of my new Paper Dolls dresses, I decided I might look a bit overdressed with everyone leaving work or wearing jeans and t-shirts. 

After trying on all of my new clothes which I will post about in a minute, I decided on the AX Paris Curve animal high to low print dress because it has wow factor without being too formal.   This dress is from Just Curvy and was a complete bargain at £22.50 and after the success of my AX Paris Curve floral dress from Simply Be I didn't have any worries about sizing or quality so I decided to order it.  It came the very next day which was pretty impressive as I paid for standard delivery and ordered it in the afternoon.  

What I like about this dress is that you can dress it up or down.  I will admit I did get a few weird looks when I was in Asda on the way home but for the meal itself it was perfect.  I wore my dress with a black cardigan as although it has removable spaghetti straps I wanted my upper arms covered up.  Jewellery wise I finally got to wear a necklace that was a gift from my sister a few Christmases ago.  A beautiful black velvet and crystal statement necklace from a boutique store and I also wore a brown bracelet which I borrowed from my mums stash.  A black patent belt was added to give my shape a bit more definition, but it also looks equally good without a belt.

Dress: AX Paris Curve @ Just Curvy, £22.50, Heels: Next,
Cardigan: New Look, Jewellery & Belt : Unknown

Please excuse the squinty eyes - it was really sunny!  I took these photos before I actually left and did decide on a last minute shoe change so although in the photos you'll see my killer black heels, I changed for a safer option and wore kitten wedges, again in black.

Finally, a quick little note that ASOS is currently having an up to 50% sale including many of their really lovely Curve range...  I am trying very hard to resist but getting closer to ordering something every day!
