Cardigan - Republic (old)
Dress - Coco's Fortune (available in purple here)
Boots - H&M
I found this dress in the incredibly cheap Rare London sale and I had to make an order. It's kind of funny how the dresses I'm really lusting over at the moment are around £40 and I can't afford that, yet I can somehow justify it when I'm getting four dresses for that amount. Does that make sense to any of you?! Anyway, this beauty is from Coco's Fortune and reminds me of something Courtney Love would wear in her Hole days. Generally I worry that colours like this wash me out even more, but something in the sheen of the fabric made me less concerned about that - I just think it's so pretty. The cardigan (which has been sitting in my wardrobe forever) was more of a practicality - I was going to a pub after all and needed to dress things down a bit. This was kind of like the baby bear in the tale of Goldilocks - it was the only knitwear to hand that sat nicely over the dress that wouldn't be too warm or too boring, as I relied on wearing a plain black cardigan over pretty dresses for too many years and I can't really stand that combination any more! Finishing the outfit with my new favourite monster truck boots (which easily survived the walk to the pub and back) I was ready to stomp my way outside. Find this outfit on Lookbook here...
Also it is of course a long shot but the Company blog awards are just around the corner and I'd love it if you could vote for me in the 'personal style blogger' section! I know loads of amazing people that are entering this but I thought that it couldn't hurt to try anyway! I hope you have a lovely weekend, let me know what your plans are... have you all remembered to buy something for Mother's Day?!
