Make It Shine

Dress, shoes and necklace: Primark

Oh dear. I didn’t realise until I wrote that line above that this whole outfit is Primark. I *shouldn’t* like this dress. And, to be honest, I don’t like it much. The shape is all wrong for me, but if I belt it, then it looks odd and about 5 inches shorter (and no one wants to see my bum). But I love the sleeves, and the collar and especially the colour, which is not one I normally go for (My wardrobe is 95% black, grey, reds through to blues)

Off on a cake crawl this afternoon around Clifton…this is possibly the best idea ever (my waistline does not agree)

Kind of Girl that Likes to Dream

After much procrastinating, and weekends of tidying which means wearing joggers and a uni sweatshirt, I finally could be bothered to take some outfit photos!

Dress: ASOS | Shoes: Primark

I really should have taken an outfit photo of this dress the first time I wore it. The dress is in such need of ironing around the scalloped bits, but I’m just too lazy! (I was too lazy to even iron the trim with my trusty GHD’s, which is what I do with this dress!)

You can see the scalloped edges a lot better here:

(and my cute new Kate Spade iPhone case – I was getting tired of the clear plastic one I got at the same time I got my phone!)

If you didn’t get my email this week – there’s going to be a small meetup on Friday after work at Start the Bus – if you’re in Bristol, let me know if you’d like to join us!

Perfect Party Dress (part 1 of eleventy billion)

Who says that a party dress has to be encrusted in sequins? I’d rather have this “Kettle Corn Dress” in “sunset” by Emily and Fin from Modcloth any day. I think I’d wear this with a few petticoats underneath, a la Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic – except instead of the multi colours, I think I’d have a gradient, so it faded from the red dress to white.

(Its also available in this “afternoon” colourway, y’know, for frolicing in fields. I don’t ever find myself in that sort of situation, but IF I DID, this would be perfect.)
