love at first sight

rusty lace shift dress: Topshop
suspender tights: River Island
black suede heels: Topshop
gold ball drop earrings: Topshop
nail varnish: No7 Speed Dry in Grey Skies


I went for that long-awaited shopping trip yesterday - and on student loan day, what a coincidink! - and found the most perfect dress. I'm not going anywhere fancy today by the way, I just wanted to show you it. I feel like a sixties sweetheart, and the colour is that gorgeous rusty brown that keeps looking wonderful on fellow bloggers.

Because I'm such a short-arse, I wasn't sure on the length - not that it stopped me from buying it! - and wished they'd had it in the Petite section. On reflection, however, I've noticed that when I raise my arms (see Image 3) it rises up a signifcant amount due to the long sleeves, so I guess it couldn't be any shorter. Note: when I raised my arms fully, the image became non-blog worthy, let's just say that. Hmm, wearing this outfit could be fun!

I also got some other wonderful pieces from the shopping trip, so you'll hopefully see all of that in due course. Has anybody else scored some wow-I-love-you-more-than-my-mum pieces lately? I kid, I kid - I'm just a little in love right now.
