Take that Dress into Autumn With Wingz

Do you have a favourite dress that you want to wear all year round, but isn’t always seasonally appropriate?

Of course you can opt to wear a cardigan over your dress but what if you don’t want to cover it up?

How about adding some sleeves?

Now I’m not suggesting you whip out your sewing machine, I’m certainly not that talented anyway. Nor do I have time.

No I have a much simpler option…

Let me introduce you to Wingz. I would describe Wingz as not quite a bra, not quite a top.

Pop these on under your chosen sleeveless dress and you now have a dress with sleeves that will see you into Autumn.

The option I have here are the full length fitted sleeves in Black. They are very simple fuss free option providing a casual look.

Do watch the helpful video on the Wingz website for how to put on. I did get in a bit of a tangle the first time. Don’t ask! It was one of those should have read the Instructions first moments. Once on though they are comfortable to wear.

My Wingz definitely fall into the wardrobe basics category. However there are many dressier options available in fitted lace, floaty chiffon, flared sleeves interesting prints, and bright colours.

Not only are Wingz a good transitional solution to have on hand in a capsule wardrobe but they are also an ideal solution if you are not comfortable having your arms out.

Wingz are small enough to carry in a day bag as an instant cover up if you find yourself catching a bit too much sun but don’t want an extra layer. Fellow fair skinned ladies will appreciate this.

The black full fitted sleeve option is priced at £16.99. Prices range from £9.99 up to £45.

Do you think these are a good idea? What type of Wingz would you choose?

5 Essential Beauty Products for Autumn 

The clocks have gone back and we are officially heading towards winter. As the nights are drawing in and it’s gets chillier my beauty needs inevitably change. I have certain products that I have returned to  time again over the past few years. They are hard working and get me through the season. This year I’ve discovered a couple of extras to add to my beauty routine. 

So here I am sharing 5 of my Autumn/winter beauty must haves;  

 Evolve Organic Beauty Hyaluranic Serum – £28

Now I have succumbed to putting the heating on my skin is starting to feel dry and tight. 

I have added this Hyalauranic acid based serum to my morning skincare regime before I apply my moisturiser. As Hyaluranic acid can hold up to a 1000 times its weight in water it grabs on to all those moisturising ingredients making them work harder and more effectively. I have really noticed the difference in how my skin feels. 


The Bodyshop Shade adjusting drops Lightening – £10

Summer has officially passed and I’ve returned to a very pale version of myself meaning my current foundation options  are way too dark for me. Not wanting to leave them to expire by the time next summer comes around these lightening drops are the perfect solution. 

I did a full review of these drops in a recent blog post that you can check out here.

The Bodyshop Hemp Hand Protector – from £5 

Anyone else suffer with hands that chap and bleed as soon as it hits November? Not only does it hurt, but it’s not pretty! This is the hand cream I reach for every year as it seems to be the only one that actually works to prevent that from happening. 

I’m not going to lie the hemp scent is a bit funky but I can over look that as the cream itself is so effective. 


Soap & Glory Heel Genius – £5.50

Now, boots not only look fab but are great for keeping your feet warm and dry throughout the Autumn and winter months.  What they aren’t so great on is the skin of your feet. Nope prolonged wear can leave feet looking a bit dry and crusty, yuck! 

This particular foot cream works a treat though to keep my feet looking and feeling great even when I’ve been wearing nothing but boots. I apply it each night before bed. The peppermint scent is also soothing if you’ve got aching feet. 

 Avon Advance techniques dry shampoo – £3.50

I love a bobble hat at this time of year to keep me warm and cosy on my walk to work. What I don’t love is hat hair. That is why I keep a can of dry shampoo in my bag for an instant freshen up once I’ve got to work. This one from Avon is great as it doesn’t leave a cast plus it also acts as a volumizer to get rid of that flat hat hair. 


Please bear in mind Avon have changed the packaging of all their Advance techniques products recently but the formula is still the same (mine is still the old packaging).
