The River Island sale

Hi guys,
There are benefits of being a big girl in a slim city (London is the slimmest city in the UK): despite totally missing the boat on the river island sale, three weeks on and all of the sale stock they have left is in my size or bigger! I didn't go in store expecting to find any sale stock left (to be honest i'd forgotten all about it!) but found a treasure trove of lovely dresses:

I loved the bird patterned one shoulder dress with the big purple bow belt (which came with!) I thought it was the perfect day to evening dress for those impromptu weekends where you have no idea what you're going to end up doing! £15
The black and white stripey dress (£10), whilst emphasising my figure and making my waist look tiny, made me too much of an hour glass I think; I felt like an all boob version of Betty Boop! The floral strapless number (£15) was lovely, and if I had a wedding or a garden party coming up it would have been perfect; sadly I don't, so it stayed on the rail!
My favourite of all the items though was the aptly named "vamp" floral playsuit (£20). I don't know if you can see very clearly, but above the belt it buttons up and darts, creating a gorgeous shape, and I love the flare of the collotes. Thats why I bought this and smuggled it home with me; all these sales are going to get me in trouble!!
I would suggest if you are a size 14 or up that you get to the river island at OXford Circus promto to pick up some bargains!
Love, Tor

I loved the black and stripy one - the tiny waist and boobs look is fab!!
