Lace Sleeves / Peter Pan Collar / Netted Skirt


Hello all! 
I'm currently sat sulking in the study listening to the sound of fireworks and watching them from the window. I feel like a dog locked in the conservatory at a barbecue. I love fireworks night but none of the maybe-we-will plans I made came to fruition, which leaves me at home with a pack of mad poodles and quite a lot of work to do. 
(If you're not from the UK, on and around the 5th of November we always have firework displays & bonfires where it is obligatory for all children to loose one glove and all adults to complain about a strained neck.)
Thinking happily ahead to the 'party season' and the many events I'm looking forward to attending, I thought it might be a sweet idea to share my favourite little black dress with you. I usually find 'LBDs' to be a bit of a boring cop-out, but this one I absolutely love! I have quite a small waist in comparison with 'everything else' (lets not go there) so I find it notoriously difficult to find things that fit my waist, but this dress was PERFECT.
Let me know what your plans are/were for fireworks night so I can cry and pretend I was there..

Dress 1 (with sleeves) : Jones and Jones. Dress 2 (bow-back) : c/o Jones and Jones.

I also thought it'd just be rude no to throw in a picture of a bow-back dress Jones and Jones were kind enough to send me, as it's equally lovely (if not a little more revealing than my usual taste) so I was a bit aprehensive to flash you all if I turned around - you can check it out here!)
