It's not having what you want, its wanting what you've got!....

I have reached the stage where I either need less clothes or a bigger flat. Recently, my beau treated me to the most beautiful wardrobe (which matches the even more beautiful dressing table he got me for Christmas!). I was pushing for space when I got it and have shopped a little bit since (which means I bought a small shop since).

I'm now running out of excuses and justifications as to keeping some of my least favourite clothing. It may just be me, but they are my babies. I cannot choose and furthermore, do not want to choose. Solution? Wear the clothes more, and make them feel like new!

For example...



Dress- Peacocks.
Bag-Mulberry.
Sandals- Primark.



This dress cost £3! My mum saw it whilst browsing in a shop and just bought it then and there. I liked it, but didn't really wear it because I thought it looked a bit cheap! How wrong I was! I slipped it on yesterday and I never want to take it off! After pairing it with a beautiful jewellery set and my mulberry, I LOVE IT!


Anyways, so that was my Tuesday! Thank you all for your kind words and for supporting my blog. For those who was dying to see the new design, its very much a work in progress and will take around a month! Sorry its not this week, wouldn't that be awesome! 

But I can promise this; it's going to be so beautiful! Already, its coming together and I'm so excited!

  20. Have you noticed that your common excuse for not wearing a certain item is the opinion that "it looks cheap"? :) C'mon! The dress is adorable! I am sure it is made of great material. And the print is just made for this season! Everything is great, and you look pretty! :)xo

  28. Perfect bargain! It suits you so much! I feel for you with all the clothes seriously I find it so difficult to part with mine :( One solution is to do a clothes swap party although net/net you usually end up with same amounts of clothes. The only way to get rid of old clothes is to move flats and cities then you more under pressure to reduce the amount.

  29. Does not look cheap AT ALL! You look very bohemian chic!
