The Grapefruit Gang..

Dress: Handmade
First Prom Heels: Irregular Choice x Blythe
Grapefruit Necklace: Rockafrilly

Lately, I've been eating nothing but grapefruit for breakfast, so when we saw this grapefruit necklace at the weekend, I knew it would have to be mine! I love the fact that the pink sections are glittery. It arrived really quickly - was with me on Wednesday (along with another couple of things) and everything was really nicely wrapped up.

I'm still not entirely sure about this dress. I think it's the length which I'm not quite sure of, I think. I made my way around to it in the #MMMay14 challenge and wasn't quite sure what shoes to wear it with. When I saw these Blythe First Prom heels languishing away in the cupboard, I decided to give them their wear for the #irregularchoicechallenge. These are Day 70, which seems crazy. What seems even more crazy is that I have so many more to go.

One thing I have noticed about #MMMay14 is that I don't really miss a lot of my "RTW" clothes. There have been a couple of dresses which I've bought recently and have quite fancied wearing, and I'd have liked a playsuit or maybe more shorts. I've worn my Megan Nielsen culottes for the first time, when the weather was hot at the weekend, and that made me realise that some more of those would be good. I've also never really made any tops, so perhaps that's something I could consider.

I don't suppose I'll ever have an entirely me-made wardrobe, but I think it's nice to see where the gaps are, at least.


  1. I love the fabric and the style of the dress you look lovely and the grapefruit is awesome!

  2. That grapefruit necklace is so cute and perfect for summer. I love the colour and pattern of your dress but I get what you mean about the length. It's that difficult no mans land length between the ankle and knee. It may be worth pinning up the hem to see if it works better shorter.

  3. That necklace is really cute (and very realistic- mmmm!) the material is such a gorgeous shade- I adore dresses in that colour and the fact it is covered in roses is even better!x

  4. That's such a pretty dress! I love the fabric. I've now fallen in love with everything on Rockafrilly's website- I'm blaming you when I'm skint! Haha! xx

  5. love the length and the bow, maybe pair it with some higher heels? xx
