Feeling Fabulous With Fashion World #ad

Growing older does not mean you have to abandon your personal sense of style but it can sometimes be difficult to balance staying current with being a fashion victim which can leave you looking like the proverbial mutton dressed as lamb.

I turn 50 in just over a week but I've used this landmark to examine my life and style and being older now have much more confidence in myself and my own "look". I draw your attention to exhibit A. my hair, which gets slightly more outrageous with every visit to my hair stylist.

 Don't be fooled into thinking I'm happy about my body. I'm still paranoid about my mum tum, would love to avoid wearing my glasses to apply makeup as I can see my wrinkles too clearly but without my specs would end up more clownish than stylish.

Shopping with my girls (13 and 18) I see trends I like but prefer more subtle versions which stop me from becoming dated but don't make me look like I'm trying to hard to look young.

I was invited to browse the online shop, Fashion World where I found lots of gorgeous pieces which would be equally good for the UK or holidays, going out out or more casual events.

Take this beautiful teal pom pom trim crinkle maxi dress, so called because the sleeves are trimmed with cute little pom-poms.

It's soft on the skin, has an eye-catching bow on the back and an elasticated waist which is wonderful if like me you tend to overindulge on holiday. It's made from viscose with a cotton trim, is machine washable and is available in sizes 10-32. Hurry though as this beauty is selling out fast.

Team it with white trainers or flat sandals for your mate's barbecue and add a denim jacket for when it turns cooler, or do like I did and add fun and fabulous rainbow espadrille flatforms which add height and glamour to any outfit without the pain of heels. They are great on grass too with no risk of sinking into soft ground and come in black (pictured) or white.

The flatforms work really well with this versatile soft denim layer maxi dress too. It's also available in sizes 10-32 and is cool and comfy with side slits to make walking easy.

I love the loose layer on the top half of the dress which really camouflages the mum tum I mentioned earlier.  The dress is made from soft tencel and is machine washable.

I reckon it would look equally good with pumps or trainers, sandals or flip flops and so would be an incredibly versatile piece of clothing for the summer.  Statement jewellery would glam it up while adding a black biker jacket would make it perfect for a UK barbecue when the weather is looking iffy.

If you've not discovered Fashion World yet go along and have a peek. It's not just all about fashion. From T-shirts to tents and kids clothes to kitchen utensils the site has it all with lots of famous brands on offer too.

You can browse online via your PC or laptop or download an app from the App Store or Google Play making it incredibly simple and convenient to shop, day or night.

I'm delighted with the quality of the items I was gifted and would definitely recommend the site to shoppers of all ages. It really does have something for anyone in a wide range of sizes.
