House of Fraser Wishlist {Granted}

House of Fraser is one of those stores that you just can’t help but check out when out and about shopping. I know every time I am shopping and happen to see one I pop in even if it is just to have a look see. When I was contacted to see if I wanted to pick any dresses in House of Fraser that totaled up to £30 I could not believe my good fortune, I actually did a little dance once everything was decided and finalized. I had so much fun checking out their dress collections, picking out items which I liked and wanted to try out or put onto my wishlist for a better day.

As a young woman working in a corporate world, I was thinking of just picking dresses that would be appropriate for work. I have always said this on the blog, ‘I was not made with a cast iron but with padding meaning’ I seem to carry around a beer belly than a flat tummy’, my family curse well at least for me as my sister works out and she has flat tummy whereas whenever I work out, beer belly still hangs around.

I had three situations in my head that I wanted to shop/create a wishlist for: Work, girls night out and ‘I woke up like this’ moments.

For work/night out I chose the half sleeve geo patterned dress by Tenki and sleeveless white/navy bodycon dress by Indulgence.

Both these dresses are absolutely gorgeous and I think can be dressed both up or down dependent on the mood.


The half sleeve patterned dress has amazing detail and fits my ‘non-existent’ curves wonderfully. I love how the dress hugs my body without suffocating it or making my wobbly bits stand-out like the sleeveless white/navy bodycon dress which I still love because the design is absolutely gorgeous. Both these dresses are above my knees and though I hate tights, considering the kind of weather we are having and just out of professionalism I am pairing these dresses with black tights and either knee-high boots when it’s raining or ankle boots on a normal day.

For ‘I woke up like this’ moments I chose off the shoulder skater dress by WalG.

 I absolutely love skater dresses, I do not own many off shoulder dresses but I do did have a few skater dresses which have bought many a dresses for me during my clubbing days (feels like a reliving someone else’s memory 🙁 ). One thing I love about shopping online is the convenience and the easy to choose and pop the items into a basket and arrange delivery. I was very impressed that I ordered these on a Thursday and by Friday I had them at home.

What do you think of my new dresses?
