actual magical powers

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

blue/green floral print dress: Pull & Bear
brown belt: New Look (with shirt dress)
black tights: Boots
brown brogues: Peacocks
stone ring: Boots
sunflower hair accessory: Claire's Accessories

So this dress has actual magical powers, I swear. It looks blue here, right? Kind of a dusty blue colour? Well, when I step outside it turns green - I really should have taken pictures to prove it, because I'm starting to think I'm crazy. Although, it's quite cool owning a magical dress. It was a Christmas present from my sister that I realised I haven't shown on here yet - I felt quite uncomfortable really because I normally wear more layers but I did apply my trusty denim jacket when I popped out to interview my friend Charlee for my project earlier.

I've also ever-so-slightly ombre-d my hair but you can't really tell. It looks more obvious in real life but it's still ridiculously subtle. I'm planning on going over it again soon to add more. I thought it was best to start small than completely mess up my hair? It's something I've wanted to do for ages so I'm glad I've finally caved.

So just a simple outfit today, but I did feel particularly good sitting 'round Charlee's house with the conservatory doors open and driving home with the windows rolled down. Spring is here! The sunflower in my hair was just completely necessary...

[Oh, as was the RAWR pose. I've never done one before. NOTE TO SELF: never do one again]


  1. Haha love the first picture!
    The sunflower in your hair is lovely! So cute! I used to spend all my dollar in Claires Accessories as a youngster. I think my dad actually banned me from spending my pocket money there!
