There's a snake in my boot..

Gilda Dress: Lindy Bop
I've been gradually making progress. With a lot of things. Tangibly, with reorganising my wardrobes, clearing out, selling and/or getting rid of old clothes and making way for the new. Ultimately I'm hoping it won't be too long until I;m moving anyway, but realistically I know that these things can take time and in the meantime, it's been nice and cathartic to feel as though progress is being made. However slowly.

Bag: Topshop
Thing I've definitely been happy to make space for recently have been this amazing new print from Lindy Bop - it's a border print covered in poodles and cats drinking cocktails. Frankly, what's not to love? Plus, it's the same style as my forest print dress, which is probably already one of my most-worn Lindy Bop dresses. I love the classic cut of a shirt dress - I always imagine them to cause me to be as effortlessly chic as the Ralph Lauren models, but I guess they're not quite that magical.

Aiken Boot: Lotus*
Also, some rather super new ankle boots; lovely red snakeskin ones with a wedge heel. I've not had a pair of Lotus Shoes before, although I've been aware of the brand for quite some time. When I was asked to choose my favourites, I decided that the Aiken boot were the perfect ones for me. They also come in a green or a black snakeskin, but I like the burgundy red of these. They have a lovely 8.5cm narrow wedge heel which feels nice and sturdy to walk in, and they fasten with a zip on the inside of the boot. I much prefer boots over heels when the ground is frosty; I'm not sure why.

Stockings: eBay
