this laurel wreath collection dress makes me rather darn happy!

it has two additions that never fail to tickle my fancy, pockets & shoulder pads.. POW! (oh I heart you fred perry)

essentials aside it's such a cute 1950's inspired number! covered with daisies and polka dots, crafted from silk, it's light as a feather and perfect for evenings in this heatwave. I can't believe how hot it's been this week, crikey! one of my favourite features is the high rounded black collar which you can't see much of in these pictures as my tangled mane has rather taken over. 

the boots are best friends to my feet, uber comfortable (I can walk properly in them) thank the lord for new look. my bag was acquired from the result of rummaging through some of my favourite vintage and second hand shops and is one of my go-to daytime accessories... I can cram an unholy amount of clutter and make up into it...winner!
daisy and polka dot printed dress: c/o fred perry

I have a wedding coming up and this dress is my current favourite option for the big day. it looks so pretty when you can see the full silhouette of high collar and rounded shoulders I'd definitely wear my hair up, I might even attempt some victory rolls and go all out vintage (if I'm feeling brave!)

hope you're all enjoying the sunshine, I seem to have an ice lolly surgically attached to my hand at all times, for medicinal purposes obviously..

back soon!

  5. Wonderful dress, the colours really suit you and those boots are sooo nice! I always struggle with shoes from New Look, they're either too big or too small :(
