w.i.w.t :: lady in lace

Wednesday, 6 March 2013


i saw this dress in the label lounge at new look on oxford street last week, and had to own it. despite owning two near identical dresses, i had to have this one. it was a bloody bargain at £14.99, and in my head, i was going to get rid of both other cream lace dresses to make room for this one. the sweet peter pan collar was really what sold it for me, and the fact that at a size 12, the dress was a little roomy. you might remember the meltdown i had last week when buying clothes online and having nothing fit; so to feel extra comfy in a size 12, i was very, very grateful for my good friend new look.

i wore this out grocery shopping on the weekend - when the sun was out no less! in honour of the sun's arrival, i was able to 'spring' the burgandy tights up after their autumnal showing with the pale pink flats and matching belt, and a ditzy print bow from my long forgotten etsy shop. no matter how cute i felt, it was still too bloody cold to head out without a cardigan... and coat...waaaaaah!
