Current Obsessions

Swan
























Topshop Dress

Topshop Jacket

Primark Sandals

H&M Clutch

& Other Stories Necklace

ASOS Rings


I'm not going to pretend I bought this dress with absolutely zero intention of channelling Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City opening credits. Because then I'd be lying. It's not that I wanted to copy her completely: I wanted something a little less girly, a little less '

ballet school age 5'

... something I could grunge up just a little bit.


In all honesty I regret buying this dress just a little! As adorable as it is, I definitely think it's much more suited to somebody with less curves than myself... I suppose this is my cue to put down the burger...

    This dress looks amazing on you! The colour makes it less girly, more edgy which I like. Great outfit! X| Taxi for Jackson |

    Thanks! i originally bought the nude version which is now out of stock, but it was actually baby pink! so I swapped it for this one because it is more edgy like you said!

    I bought this dress a few weeks ago for a party next week and I was thinking of pairing it with my leather jacket as well, so I was glad to see it on somebody else online. I know what you mean about curves it is a bit clingy but I was also thinking about layering a jumper over the top so it's just a pretty skirt, do you think that will work? Also how would you dress it down for day? I always try to get my wear out of things lol Any ideas would be great :) butireallyneedthis.blogspot.co.uk
