run run runaway, lost lost lost your mind..

dress: via new life
heels: primark
hair slide: h+m (years ago)
I'm still keeping up with Hazel's Only Once August challenge - as much as I can anyway. I'm certainly thinking more about things I haven't worn and trying to figure out how to get them into an outfit.

I picked this dress up on my recent trip to New Life as well. I'm not sure where it was from originally (obviously everything is debranded before sale to stop reselling) but I was drawn to the tie around the waist and the pencil shape, which I wouldn't have thought I was brave enough for.

Luckily I don't hate it on, so this one is a keeper. Which is a good thing because so far all this challenge seems to have done is helped me to decide to get rid of things! Is anyone else taking part?

    *rushing off to listen to the Yeah, yeah, yeahs!

  6. That dress is so gorgeous - it fits you absolutely perfectly!! This New Life place sounds amazing!! I think I might try wearing some things I haven't worn in a long time too, it sounds like a good idea. I think I've worn everything I own once, just some not for a long time!!

  7. This dress is BEAUTIFUL. You always have the nicest clothes!!

  8. I love the Yeah Yeah Yeahs reference in the title! You look lovely x
