Found These In Narnia

topshop skater skirt velvet top
Skirt: Topshop (old)
Velvet Dress: Newlook (also old)

Today was one of those root through the depths of your drawers and wear the first thing you can find kind of day. Actually my version included a whole lotta lint brushing as Theo likes to make little cat beds out of everything at the moment and leaves incriminating ginger hairs everywhere. I can't say I'm overly fond of this outfit, it's just something I wore and something I photographed - ah you can see this is going to be an oh so creative type of post!

I'm a little disheartened actually, today I came home to the bridal undercrackers a la Debenhams and they don't fit, so my plan is to get measured tomorrow for the first time in my life. Yup I'm 24 and have never actually known my true cheb* size, I've just always feared some snooty woman with a bob trying to force me into buying £50 underwear whilst I panic and try to think of a way to escape to Primark. But fear the bobbed lady no more! For tomorrow I will saunter up cool as a cucumber (and as red as a raspberry) and politely ask someone to manhandle my breasts.

Well this post has certainly gone to places I didn't expect : / On that note I'm off to watch Made in Chelsea and find out what Kimberly has been up too.


*Chebs - Noun - An polite and humorous term spawned from the male used to name the breasts of a human female.

  4. haha i'd forgotten about the word chebs and how lolz it is!

    No need to worry the bob lady and forcing you to buy expensive underwear - if you go round and pick up a few things in your price range before you ask to be measured they usually only recommend things priced the same!

  5. The velvet dress looks lovely tucked in! :) having your boobs measured really isn't that bad, I thought it would be until my mum forced me to get it done and it was perfectly fine, bit embarrassing but nothing more! x

  9. I have the skirt of this dress somewhere in my floordrobe, we could be twins!

    I've only ever head my boobs measured once. I was eleven, my friend got measured first and was told she was a DD. I went next and was told politely that my 'breasts were too small to be measured at the moment' and that I should come back in a while. NEVER AGAIN.

    Also.. Made in Chelsea.. Kimberly.. fake crying.. twerp x

  16. I think I used to have a Topshop top in that exact same print - I have no idea where that ended up. Lovethe shape of the skirt.

  18. I've never been measured either, I fear the woman doing it would point, laugh and direct me to the kids section for crop tops and "my first bra"

  19. I've never heard the word chebs before, it's normally a crude "get yer tits ahrrrt" from passings white vans that I hear in Essex. Ahhh, home <3 Being measured is weird, they say different things in different shops, but I do like La Senza bras, so I'd give them a go, if there's one nearby xxx

  20. I really like the outfit :)

    Plus I know what you mean about getting measured, it's terrifying! I got measured for the first time last year and it was actually okay and an older woman did it but I left my top on and was embarrassed lol!

  21. Love the outfit. Getting measured really isn't that bad, the only downside for me is I found out I was quite a small back size so I have to pay out for better bra's no Primark one's for me! But seriously it's nothing to worry about, they've seen thousands of breasticles before! xx

  22. Boux Avenue and Leia do wondeful measuring and fitting. Hope you found a lovely set :) xx

  23. Oh hey come on, even if it's not the most creative outfit of all times, you look cute in it and (hopefully) felt good wearing it, so that's what counts! I really like the velvet and florals :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Loving the definition of chebs. i've never been measured either, i'm far too scared and shy for that! I really like this outfit. I want that floral skirt. Oh and of course we can swap hair, have fun with my extremely knotty locks! xx

  25. I really love this outfit on you! Hope you got some nice underwear too!

  27. Love it - especially the velvet! xA

  28. I can join the queue of people saying "I've never been measured either" unless you count grabbing a tape measure and googling "whats my bra size?". Ahh, it feels so good to get that off my chest. Or chebs. Anyway, I hope the measuring went well for you, and you got some nice undercrackers.

  30. i love that velvet dress, i've got it stashed somewhere within the depths of my wardrobe too. you've inspired me to crack it out! i hate getting measured so much, they hardly ever get it right. i think someone once measured me as a DD when I was a B. hope your fitting went a bit better! xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. haha your descriptions are so funny! hope the measuring went okay! last time i got measured the lady was like "well seeing as you have such small boobs it doesn't really matter what size you wear." Cheers! Lovely outfit anyway, I love the velvet! x
