i've been thinking, take me now, i'm in too far..

April Shoe Challenge - Day 6

sometimes i think i put my outfits together the wrong way round..i came home to a parcel containing this lovely necklace yesterday evening, which i won in the giveaway which Sarah hosted recently at amilliondresses..i decided that i needed to wear it right away (well, the next morning, anyway), and proceeded to hunt for a dress which i could put with it..and then some shoes..this topshop dress was a sale purchase ages and ages ago, i can't even remember when..i haven't worn it very often, and even considered selling it on ebay last year as when the alice in wonderland film hit the cinemas this dress seemed to be selling on there like hot-cakes..but i decided against it..i like the pattern, and the flippy sleeves..they just don't look so great under a cardigan, so it's probably a dress best worn on a warm day or you end up looking like you're wearing shoulder pads (which i hate!)..the other thing i am not so sure about is the length of it..i tried it with the shoes and a pair of normal (nude) tights, and i was scared by the amount of leg on show..so in order to wear these heels i switched to black tights and took a black cardi with me for work - and i was told i looked nice when i got there so that has to be good, right?!

as for the shoes, they've been seen a lot recently, but i wore them today as i thought they'd go with the colours in the dress, and also it would stop me wearing them again for the rest of the month..i have been relying on them quite a lot recently, since picking them up in primark when i was last in liverpool..but i guess on a cost-per-wear basis that makes them a bargain!
