Miss Selfridge Magic Mirror

Have you seen the Magic Mirror feature that Miss Selfridge launched this week?

Its basically a dress version of the program opticians use so you can see what frames suit you.  You can virtually 'try' on dresses and then post the results on your facebook profile.  It seemed like a good idea and looked quite fun to do.  I had a little go with limited results...

I took screen shots as I really didn't want to publish these on my facebook!  I found it quite difficult to activate the controls by waving and if I stood further back so you could get more dress in my head ended up looking like a pin!  It might work better if you're stick thin and don't have to enlarge the dress much to cover you.  Being a UK12 I found that by the time the dress was wide enough to cover my body there wasnt much of it left.  It would work better for trying tops on for me!  The model manages to make it look great though: 

Have you had a play and what kind of results have you gotten?  Do you like the idea or find it too gimmicky?

I was going to do an outfit post today but I am not very well :(  I have really bad face ache (like tooth ache but both the top and bottom of the left side of my jaw.  I think it's because I have gotten a really cold face in the last couple of days.  It means that I haven't been able to get much sleep because as soon as the painkillers wear off the pain wakes me up.  Hopefully I will be better tomorrow and normal service can resume.  Oh and I will also get to show off my new hair cut :)

Hope you're all managing to keep warm and cozy.  Don't forget to enter my competition to win a bottle of Models Own Gold Rush, it's so pretty!
