what I wore: lbd

paper dolls mesh panel dress: c/o little mistress
black vanity case: vintage
casio watch: urban outfitters

it's not often I dress up but the lure of a dreamy little black dress got me.

I can't quite believe it's nearly december; the party season has arrived and this gorgeous paper dolls dress from little mistress arrived just in time for my first christmas party (yippee!)

this dress also comes in cream but as much as I loved it I also know how much I love to pour drinks on myself so I stuck with the classic no brainer that is black. made from a magical 'sucks you in' fabric little mistress have mastered the hourglass dress so if you're after a slinky night out number I recommend you pop over to peruse their party wear sharpish!

on another note, I invested in my first ever onesie.. yep I finally took the plunge! I previously avoided this dangerous territory (I feared I would become so infatuated with 3 second dressing I'd give up the fight and spend 90% of my week dressed like a giant baby) however once I realised I was only cooking dinner so I could hover around the oven to warm up I decided it was high time to join the club. 

oh boy have I been missing out, my cosy feet thank you onesie.

hope you've all had a good weekend.. back soon
