Newbies.

I recently ventured out to do a bit of shopping, mainly just for essentials but came upon this dress. I didn't think much of it first but decided to try it on anyway. People, if you are unsure about an item of clothing just try it on. Clothes were made for bodies and not hangers so they will look completely different on you. You may be pleasantly surprised. Has this ever happened to you?
This was the case with this dress. It's by a brand that i'm not overly familiar with called Selected but without even looking in the mirror I knew I needed to buy it. It is so comfortable on and the fabric is so light it's so easy to wear.The neckline is very flattering and the layers are sooo cute. Even though It is quite short This would come in handy if you wanted to wear it casually tucked into a pair of shorts or a shirt and some brogues, which I actually just got some new ones.yay. For a more dressy look I would throw on my pair of wedges I wore in one of my last posts and add some chunky jewelry. Hair possibly in a top knot or loose waves.
However, as much as I love this dress I did have one problem. The back of it is completely sheer. As in, not being able to come out of the dressing room wearing it because your underwear is 100 per cent visible, kind of sheer. I don't see why it wasn't just lined the whole way round but I sorted myself out with a little slip that goes perfectly under it so there was no love lost.Crisis averted. 



 I love how you can see all the scars on my knees in this picture. Falling came first nature to me when I was a kid.







Still having rubbish weather here apart from some sunny spells between showers. 
:(

Let me know what you think,
Enjoy your weekend.

  31. yes some things look fabulous on the hanger and crap on me; and other things look like shapeless sacs on the hanger.. but magically turn into some of my fave pieces! i love when the latter happens.. not the first lol.
