NEW IN:
dresses.

Some recent acquisitions of mine that I have failed to photograph up until now.

This lace number was an absolute steal in the Topshop sale. Its by Jones + Jones, originally retailing at £65, I got it for a mere tenner. It did have those awful, sheer, billowy sleeves that are elasticated at the ends. Yeah I hate them so yeah I got rid.

I featured this in my latest wish list post. Admittedly, a bit cheeky, I had already bought it. Isn't it luscious though? My only qualm is that its slightly longer than my usual dress length so I do feel a bit ooh la ladylike. I'm wanting to pair it with this jacket and these bootiful booties.

I solemnly swear to stop being so lazy with outfit posts #badfashionblogger (I will do one tomorrow) and you will see these babies featured in their very own OOTD, WIW, LOTD very soon.

  25. A tenner for that dress?! Jel! Absolutely love the red one too but I'm not a hem-past-the-knee sort of girl! Would take a lot of getting used to!

  27. i need to give myself a day off so i can alter all the sales bargains i seem to acquire.
    it's not an amazing bargain if they're sat at the bottom of your wardrobe.
    the new look dress is a gorgeous colour.
