ARLENE

I think it's fair to say that Voodoo Vixen are taking over the world- as well as my wardrobe! Recently they have a concession for their plus size clothes in Debenhams, and kindly offered to send me a few of what they had on offer- something that has  cheered me right up as I have felt a very self-conscious student as of late. This is only a good thing. It opens up Voodoo Vixen to a whole other market, as well as warming my fat girl heart that Voodoo Vixen choose their plus sizes to try first :)




Dress c/o Voodoo Vixen via Debenhams (also from here, in smaller sizes here and similar here)
Necklace: Thomas Sabo
Petticoat: Hell Bunny

My best friend April wore this when we were invited to attend London Edge with Voodoo Vixen and I fell in love (and unsuccessfully tried to steal it) so I KNEW I wanted this dress. The fit is exactly the same as my Kitty dress (they re obviously cut from the same patten), so is super comfortable. Like the Kitty, Arlene doesn't fir my waist perfectly as its cut to a more generous style. I like this about Voodoo Vixen- its more accommodating to a more average figure and a lot more flattering to plus size beauties, while the belt means I can pull in the waist to fit around my hourglass curves. Again similar to the kitty dress- they material is fantastic!! The print is beautiful and strong and clearly applied (with all the issues coming form a certain PUG dress of late I feel this is VERY important) and the material if very think. Its generally well crafted. 

I am so glad i have this dress in my wardrobe (which I put on as soon as it  arrived) and can't wait to wear it again. Its one of the front runners for my outfit to the Pinup Picnic in the Park in June (event link here), and I know it will be worn again as soon as this weekend. 

The main thing is it well and truly done its job of cheering me up after a rough couple off weeks. Student stress does havoc on my self confidence and this dress has managed to easily repair that damage. Now if it could only write my essay for me.
