Stripe dress: TOPSHOP | Watch: RIVER ISLAND | Shoes: CONVERSE
This dress is beautiful. I didn't realise how much so until looking back over these pictures. I bloody adore it. As well as the playsuit I showed you in last night's post, I also grabbed this in the sale. I got this for the same price - £20 - but this was reduced from £60. Sixty. When I looked at the tag in the shop my eyes nearly popped out of my head, that's a saving of forty whole pounds. One could buy another dress at full price with that. Dayummmm.
Again I hadn't seen this before until I spotted it on the sales rack, but once I'd had my eye on it I couldn't leave it. Oh no no no. I think a lot of girls, despite their styles, sometimes just want an amazing dress which is going to make them feel good. For me, this is the dress. I usually go for casual dresses which are more daytime appropriate, but nothing about this dress exactly screams 'I'm just going out to the shops'. I do have a tendency to overdress, though, and seeing as I don't go on glamorous nights out or for restaurant meals (hint hint, I'd be happy for someone to take me on one, k thnx) then I just think "why the hell not?". What is stopping me from wearing this to uni? Uh, nothing.
The shape of the dress is one I really like. There was a dress in a coral colour in the exact same shape in Topshop's summer stock, and I wanted to get my hands on that one but didn't end up doing, so this is my first one in the shape. I don't know what it is, I suppose it's because it's kind of boyish and simple? Not making sense? Never mind. The colours match my style perfectly as I don't have a girlie-girl style so I can still wear a dress without it being too, er, fluffy. Argh, this is just my IDEAL dress for ANYTHING. And I got it for twenty quid! The Converse and red lipstick just make it even more perfecto.
Today I went to see 'Les Misérables', and it was bloody beautiful. Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne (who I've never even come across before - hotttt!) completely stole the show for me. The fact that all the singing was done live just made it loads better. Mum and I are massive criers when it comes to movies and I've heard a lot of people say they 'cried like four times', but we only did twice. We were terrible at the ending though, which wasn't even that sad it's just 'cause they were singing beautifully and BOOM I was an emotional wreck. I'm not even massively into musicals but it's a very lovely film. Have you seen? What did you think?
I also got another tattoo, will post about that tomorrow!
