Fat Frocks is in a Fab Mood

It's been a great week so far and I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has checked out Where Are My Knees?. I had lots of lovely supportive comments about my introductory post and I'm sure me and the other lovely ladies can reach all of our goals with everybodys encouragement :) Don't want to repeat too much of what I will talk about on the other blog but I lost 5% of my total body weight, hurrah!

Sarah gave me a discount code on Saturday so I got 20% off Dorothy Perkins but there was already 30% off dresses so I got some bargains, it was dress madness, thanks Sarah! I ordered a lovely blue dress but it's more of a 'going out' dress so I wore this one to my course today and I got complimented on it in ASDA, score. I'm glad I got it for £16 because it's only jersey material and isn't the best fitting dress I've ever bought. I would have been a little disappointed if I payed full price.



Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Cardi: H&M (had this for 6 years and it's still looking fab)
Shoes: Very
Leggings: Evans
Bracelet: Peacocks


My brother takes all my photos because I'm too much of a cheapskate to buy a tripod. He was giving me directions as if he was 'noted  fashion photographer Nigel Barker' and I was doing my best Tyra Banks impression. I'm not totally mad, honest...
Have you had any discount code bargains recently?

If you want to chat or ask me anything about Where Are My Knees then you can find me on twitter so come and say hi :)

  10. aww Gem i love these photos of you! you always look so natural onfront of the camera. i suppose it's a little easier posing onfront of a person than standing onfront of a tripod yourself! the dress is lovely, the little lace collar is so cute! xx

  12. The detailing on that dress is so lovely. You always look so natural and happy on your photo's and that sure does make a change from seeing girls posing unaturally all for the sake of a outfit photo xxx
