Sea of love...

You know those days when you just want to put on your brand new, pure silk maxi dress, for a walk around a park? No, neither did I, until today. As you can see from picture one, I didn't think it through. It soon hit me it was a bad idea, but the show must go on!

This is a strange dress really. When I tried it on, my mum and I were unsure. A lady was walking past my fitting room and just said "Wow". So I and my mum said (simultaneously), what any fashion obsessed girl would. "Sold"!
Now, I'm not keen. Everything about it should make it my dream dress; detail on the shoulder, floaty at the bottom and most importanly: It fits like a glove. Ah well!


                    
Denim jacket- Peacocks. 
Dress- Monsoon.


In other news, I am making major progress with the re-designing of my blog! Expect big things!

Hope your all having as much of a productive week!

  26. it's funny - i have a maxi dress in almost the exact shape and color scheme, and i bought it because the people in the store told me it looked great - but now it seems a bit odd to me, and i never reach for it. this looks great on you though, you should wear it with pride!
