Current Obsessions

Daisy Lace

Oh My Love Dress *

| Topshop Sunglasses | Zara Bag | Primark Shoes

As much as I'd like to pretend that I'm going to have a big white wedding and marry the love of my life one day, it is a more realistic expectation that I will become an old bachelorette (obviously


a spinster...) living in a derelict South London loft with a hundred cats and a thousand pigeons all coexisting harmoniously. 

Plus, I'm 22, so the thought of marrying at this age terrifies me more than living with thousands of feral animals anyway... so allow me to indulge in a little wedding-free white lace fantasy of my own. 

Dripping with sixties-style crochet daisies, this lace dress by

Oh My Love

is begging to be dolled up and taken out to a garden party (the invites to such parties seem to have been lost in the post...) Yet it has an effortlessly summer-cool vibe when paired with this seasons fugliest shoe:

the birkenstock. 

There's always some weird and wonderful pleasure in combining an ugly thing with a pretty thing. When something is so pretty and perfect it becomes predictable and boring. When something has a bit of a quirk or an ugliness it makes a far more interesting and unique image.
