Hi Lovelies
I've had this cardigan since August but I have only just got round to wearing it now as I thought Friday would be a nice day to wear it and also its been quite sunny during the morning today so the perfect time to take photos as in January you never know when the sun will be out or it will be another British rainy day.

Its just a gorgeous cardigan and very well made as the material is very thick and keeps you warm in the house/going out in somewhere sheltered from the British winter. It has spooky looking cupcakes on both sides of the chest with a skull design on the cherries which I found quite quirky. The buttons are like a blood red and have a very glossy finish which makes them kind of look like glazed cherries. I teamed up this cardigan with my jeans which are a very nice fit and are bootcut and I also wore coral wide fit shoes which I just love especially during the warmer months. I think the combinations of the clothes went very well with hair and complimented my figure very well.

I was going to go outside to take these photos but I didn't have time to go to far as my husband was due to go to work and I had to go to the school to pick up my son but apart from that I think the photos came out quite nicely. I have had a few clothes from Banned Apparel before but this cardigan has to be my favourite choice yet as it fits my curves perfectly but I do wish they did larger sizes in their clothes as the clothes are just divine and would of loved to buy more to add to my retro wardrobe.

I love wearing jeans but finding jeans that fit my petite size and my curves can be an effort! I am glad I managed to get a leg size 28 and size 16 in Matalan of these! does anyone know where to find jeans that fit shorter ladies like myself?
