during a clear-out at the weekend i dug out this dress, bought years ago from the primark sale rail for a measly £3, and remembered that last time i tried it on i couldn't cope with the way it fit (mainly how snug it was around the bum / thighs area)..so i thought i'd give it another chance, try it on, and if it was no good i'd list it up for sale..i kind of like it now, although it does have a frustrating habit of riding up a bit..

usually i'd wear it with flats due to the length, but i figured that with black tights, maybe i could get away with black shoes, and thought i'd give my latest primark pair an outing..i picked up this pair of black suede-feel platform mary janes for £16 which i was pleased with as i have fancied a plain black pair of heels ever since my glittery ones started falling apart..

and finally - a christmas gift i had failed to mention thus far - this beautiful pink dolly coat from oasis, which i beelined towards in the store when i first saw it, and my mum offered to buy me for christmas..i love the shape, and the buttons, and obviously the bright colour..the perfect shade of pink?

  1. loving the dress, very pretty. Love it when something that's been lurking out of favour in the wardrobe comes back around. I have a pair of trousers like that. Love the coat also.

  11. It doesn't look snug on you at all now - it's beautiful. The coat is a great colour on you too.

  12. Thanks for your comment on my post! The photoframe was from Boots. It had another black and white floral mount inside it, but I pulled that off to create my picture. I tried to find it on the Boots website to give you the link, but can't seem to find it on there - sorry!
    That dress is lovely!
