Carpe Diem Heels : Irregular Choice
The third and final Emily + Fin dress I'd decided I needed to add to my wardrobe this season, when I saw them all at Pure, was this one. Meet Daphne. I think she may be my favourite yet. I particularly like the Bardot neckline and the bow detail to the shoulders, and the skirt is the perfect length and volume for my liking.

Daphne is another new design for this season and I knew I wanted this green tropical palm print. Sadly, again, none of my regular haunts were stocking it, but the helpful folks at E+F managed to send me a list of the shops who were (roll on being able to purchase directly from their site, by the way!) and I sent a few emails out asking about whether people would be able to let me know when it arrived with them. I receieved a reply almost immediately from a lovely lady from Irene's and managed to purchase over the phone, and Daphne was with me the next day, so that was wonderful!

I couldn't wait for an opportunity to wear it, which is often the case with my very favourite dresses and I decided it would be perfect teamed with my new bunny tights. Purchased from ASOS last week after seeing them on Sarah's wishlist post, I knew I needed them for Easter. I just wish they looked a little more like bunnies on my chunky legs, but I think they were too stretched.

Although I added this ring because I had to photograph it, it had broken in transit so I couldn't actually wear it, which seems to be the way with all of the jewellery I've ordered from that site - I should learn.

Instead of the obvious shoe choice, which would have been my Flopsy heels, I went with a lesser-worn pair. My Carpe Diem shark heels, as for some reason I was thinking Hawaiian prints and sharks went together and mostly because I have another outfit planned for the bunny heels, at some point.

Anyway, that was my party outfit for Sunday, which was definitely grey and tights-weather but a lovely day nonetheless. After the soiree, we went to see Spiderman at the flicks, which was rather nice. I mostly liked Emma Stone's amazing collection of coats (obsessed) but as comic book films go, it wasn't so bad, either.

  1. I just looove that dress! A Bardot neckline is such a rarity but I love how they look (although I'm technically too broad to get away with them, I love them anyway.) I love the shoes too.
    Agreed about Spiderman. I loved her style in it and it's made me want more knee socks/boots haha. So sad at the end though xxx

    1. I really love them as well. Although I hate the majority of my body, I don't really mind my shoulders too much, so I've always been drawn to them.

  6. I can't help but notice you look a bit like the vintage sewing pattern pledge lady in that dress!!!
    It's a beauty! How lovely it is! Good old Emily and Finn!!! I wanted to buy my sister in law an E+F dress for her 30th (they had one in TK Maxx) but we ended up with a Debenhams Red Herring one as CbC preferred it!
    The shoes are hilarious!!! I love shoes with eyes!!!! If they weren't so high, I'd be tempted to buy a pair of the ICs with eyes!!! x

      I do like the recent E+F styles, although haven't been so fussed about previous seasons.
