|Acrobat Print Lucy Long Dress: Emily and Fin|
|Polka Dot Tights: New Look|
|Cardigan: TU Clothing|
|Akemi Blythe Shoes: Irregular Choice|
After seeing this acrobat print dress at Emily and Fin's stall at Pure, I knew I'd have to get my hands on it just as soon as I could. The only problem? There are literally no E+F stockists anywhere near me. Thankfully, E+F gave me a heads up on which shops were due to get this one in, and I bought mine from Quetty Bang, who were super-duper helpful.
I've not had any of the Emily and Fin Lucy dresses before. This is actually a slightly refined version, the Lucy Long, which is a perfect length for me with heels. I took the opportunity to give these polka dot tights a try. Brand new out of the packet and they had a big hole in them - I really am hopeless with tights! (At least they were a pair I'd picked up for £1 in the New Look sale so I don't feel too bad if I can't get many more wears from them).
I also thought the whole thing would go rather well with this new (to me) pair of Irregular Choice / Blythe shoes. I'm told the style is called "Akemi". I just love the pom pom fronts and I sort of find the dolls themselves endearing rather than freaky.
