This post seems slightly inappropriate now, as on the day these photos were taken the light was beautiful and the sky was so clear. Now, as I look to my left and out of the window it is utterly grey, dull and pouring down with rain. If nothing else I hope this post will inspire and excite you for spring/summer and the pretty colours that lie ahead!
So. This dress. Wearing it, I do feel a bit like Marie Antoinette, had showing a considerable amount of leg been considered acceptable in the 18th century. I admit I nearly had a breakdown with joy when I saw it. It was one of those 'I have never seen anything so perfect' moments - so much so, that a passing employee stopped and longingly said 'It's amazing isn't it?' and we just stood together and gazed at it in silence for what was
probably definitely a weirdly long amount of time. It's unusual for me to be wearing no jewellery or accessories, so I've also listed the brand and shade of lipstick I'm wearing below if anyone's interested. I hope you love it as much as I do.
Dress : Topshop. Lipstick : Yves Saint Laurent 'Pink Lingerie'.
I've also decided to make this Part 1 of a 2 part post - which will be tip-toeing along the 'Splurge verses Save' lines (despite the fact I actually find that phrase/concept completely abhorrent. Just how repulsive is the word 'splurge'?) Part 1, the more costly version is this Topshop dress, and Part 2 will feature a less costly but equally lovely similar design from Motel.
