Love Like A Star

Happy new year! We watched the fireworks in London at midnight curled up on the sofa, which is a lot more fun I think than standing outside for 12 hours to make sure you get a good spot! I’m really enjoying reading everyones blog posts about what their resolutions are for the next year – I have a few that I’d like to do so will post that later in the week. This week off has gone by so quickly – I don’t want to go back to work on Tuesday. (Well, I do really, but it’s quite nice to be getting up late and doing nothing)

To start the new year, I wore a new dress – a good excuse as any! My sister had noticed that I was filling my wardrobe up with these dresses, so bought me this berry coloured one as part of my Christmas present. I probably wouldn’t have chosen it myself, but I really love the colour. Belt is from ASOS and boots from USC – basically, this is the same outfit as I wore here, but with black tights!

Link me to your resolution posts! I feel like I should have a few more than the 2 I have at the moment!

HtCC: Pointe Circular Dresses

Fit n Flare, Skater, or as Dorothy Perkins likes to call them, pointe circular dresses*, this has to be my favourite style at the moment. I bought the pink one a few weeks ago and seem to wear it for everything lately – when I went to see the filming of Gok Wan’s show (and which, rather embarrassingly, made me stand out in the crowd quite a bit and end up on telly. I had my cousins telling me every time they saw me, and people in work saying about it.), when I went to London Fashion Week (and although I felt out of place around those stylish ladies and gents, it was more because the dress was quite a plain style and there were some quite outlandish outfits there) and I’m actually wearing it tonight when I go out for dinner with some old uni friends.

I love this dress, because its bright, its reasonably cheap (especially with the sales on this week!), its easy to wash (oh what a housewife-y thing to say) and its NICE. Its fitted at the waist, not too tight, has sleeves (I hate dresses without sleeves) and length wise, isn’t obscene on me, which is a bit of a rarity.

I have a bit of money in my PayPal account (somehow, money in PayPal just doesn’t seem like real money…anyone else find that?) and Dorothy Perkins takes PayPal…I’m torn between the purple dress*, the black dress* or the blue dress*.

You’re right. I should buy them all. Thanks!
