On the first day I'll dress this city in flames..

028
Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444)
I know I've posted a spoiler of this outfit already as it was one of my #OWOP outfits, but I liked it, so here it is.

I found this bag when I was having a bit of a coat sort-out. It was hidden behind a group of coats on my bedroom door and it still had the tags on it. I remember buying it when the first Sex and the City movie came out, from Topshop, because I basically wanted Carrie's house-hunting outfit.

Glasses: London Retro*
After snapping a photo to load it into my virtual wardrobe app, I decided to waste no more time in using it and figured it would go nicely with this dress. The print is of fishing girls and deer with floral antlers and I bought it from Sew Hot.

Prom Princess Heels: Irregular Choice
Speaking of the Dressed app, I've now drawn the winners and congratulations to: Emma, Enid, Lani, Tracy and Alex - look out for an email with details on how to download the app, and enjoy!

Eiffel Tower bag: Topshop
I've now worn all three pairs of my Prom Princess heels, after finally getting around to them in the #irregularchoicechallenge and I think the purple are my favourite colourway. I'd also worn this dress with a striped cardigan, but as it was a warm afternoon, I left that at work and didn't take the photos until I got home.

  3. God I desperately wanted that eiffel tower bag and I don't even watch SATC. Never knew Topshop did a replica at the time. Gorgeous dress too.

    1. TbH i'm not sure which one I saw first. Weekly trips to Topshop in the Arndale centre in Manchester meant that I pretty much bought everything, and then promptly forgot about it.

  5. I remember when those bags were on sale, and I remember wanting one so much... but I never got my hands on one for some reason. I'm still a bit in love with Carrie's house-hunting outfit. Her wardrobe was amazing, just like yours! Today's dress is gorgeous and you look fantastic in it. :) xx

    1. I love her wardrobe as well. She is def one of my style icons. I might have to do an outfit post based on her house-hunting outfit. Or maybe just various Carrie outfits? Hmm!
