I've found myself spiralling into a student-loan-burning, hopeless obsession with opalescent fabrics, jacquard co-ordinates & white shirts, rich jewel colours, pearl encrusted jewellery, oriental-inspired embroidery, and velvet detailing. As you might be able to tell, I prefer dressing for A/W immeasurably, so I've really been going (for lack of a better word) a bit ...mental.
So how could anyone blame me for vowing that this utterly beautiful dress WOULD be mine? From it's 100% silk material, to it's elegant mandarin collar. I cannot cope. Ever since my jaw dropped as I saw this victorian-esque printed dress on a mannequin whilst rushing out of Topshop on Oxford Street to meet my brother, I was a woman on a MISSION. A mission that would not be fulfilled until this dress was in my possession! As you can see, I succeeded. I'm besotted with this East-meets-West masterpiece.
In all honesty, I must be stopped and enough really is enough - BUT this obsession also means that I have countless new outfits to share with you! I'm thinking to myself 'where will I ever find the time to photograph all this?!' but I've made a resolution to do my utmost best to do 2 posts a week, now I seem to be settling into my new, 'no-longer-a-first-year-so-I-actually-have-to-do-some-work' routine at university.
