sorry to have been a little AWOL for the last few days, i have been away and whilst i had meant to schedule some posts before i left, i was in a bit of a last-minute panic and just didn't get time to..but despite the panicking all went well with the trip and a lovely time was had by all so it was totally worth it  :)

today's outfit, and back to the shoe challenge with a pair i won from ebay last year and hadn't yet worn..i really love the owl at the front, it sort of makes me think of 'hedwig' from harry potter..? and whilst i am not usually a fan of mid-height heels, the owl and the bright orange colour outweighed that.. in fact, today i chose them partly for the height, as i wanted to wear them with this lovely dress from the tesco clothing website..

a few weeks ago i was lucky enough to win one of the discount codes Em at Passion for Fashion was giving away..cue much deliberation over which dress to order - in the end i went for this one as i love the oranges in the floral print, and the bow and the peter pan collar and i figured that as the other one i'd narrowed it down to is available in my local store, i would probably get that one as well at a later date..

i hadn't ordered from Clothing at Tesco before, but i would use them again..it waas very easy to get through the checkout process and add in my voucher code, as well as linking it to my clubcard to get some points on what i had ordered as well..the delivery time was great; well within the suggested time and i was very pleased with the dress itself..

my only reservation with this dress was that i wasn't sure what the length would be like on me..it has a  nice net ruffle at the bottom of the lining layer, which gives a nice shape, and i think stops it from riding up, which is good..i would maybe have gone for something a little longer instore, but i think with the black tights it doesn't look too short..hence the mid-heels, which are proving to be insanely comfortable  - why haven't i worn these before!?!

  1. Yay, you've finally worn them! They are so, so beautiful and go perfectly with that fab frock.

    I've always been pretty impressed with Clothing at Tesco but this time round they sent my parcel via a crappy courier service who thoroughly confused me and took ages to actually give me the parcel. Grrrr.
