(Mega) Hauling.

Well, I have been a little quite, but I have been busy spending money ;o)  I had hoped to photograph these on me, but I have either been shivering my socks off wrapped in a chunky knit cardi (and no way was I going to to play dress up!) or busy pinging about the country for work/family things.  So my purchases have sat in bags accumulating!  Some of these were sales bargains, others werent. (That makes me feel a bit better about my spending!!)
Forever21, French Connection, ASOS, French Connection...

I thought I would result to taking pictures of the bags and a sneak peak and then post pictures of the items either flat or hung up, then hopefully take some pictures as I get dressed up for nights out/work (if I get ready in time!!  This is NOT a strong point for me!)

My question to you is does it make a difference if clothes are photographed on a person or just hung up?  Or do you just like seeing clothes?!

Hope you are all well!  What was the last thing you bought?

Find clothes by your size! Genius App!

I saw this today and just had to share.  If you're like me then finding clothes can be a nightmare.  I go into one shop and I'm a size 8, another size 12, another 14... and it doesn't stop there!  Each item is individually sized too, so a skirt in a 10 might fit, but in tops I'm a 12.. confused? Me too!

I saw this today.

Simply input your hit, waist and bust size in CM or inches and the software will tell you which shops you should head to.  Not only that, but it also breaks it down into which shops best fit you for tops, skirts and dresses.  You can also select a store and see what measurements they fit their clothes too.

I have to say, the results it gave me were pretty good- places I shop in!

Genius idea.  You can check it out at http://sizes.darkgreener.com/ Sadly I don't think height is taken into account but it is a step in the right direction? Right?

Other News:
I had hoped to take some more OOTD pictures, but it has been so cold that I have literally lived in jeans/ work wool trousers and a big chunky knit cardigan.  Not very exciting!  Hopefully it will warm up soon!!  I'm not used to -10 degrees!!

I am updating the Blogger Height Wall again, so please, please spread the word.  The more people there are, the better it works!  Don't forget 5 foot 10 is on twitter.  I tend to update it with fashion and tall tweets, but if you want to follow my normal (random) ramblings and beauty tweets then follow my other twitter HERE.

What have you been up to?  Do you think that site is good?  Can you recommend any other software?
