I love you Emily & Fin...

OK, so I lied in my last post, so far this is the last post with my old hair! Deciding what to wear in the heat has been utterly unbearable but this gorgeous monochrome Emily & Fin dress has been a lifesaver. I bought it from Ruby Cotton back in about March (check out their closing down sale for some bargains) and have been wearing it a lot over the past few weeks, there's nothing better than a really swooshy skirt! Emily & Fin are one of those brands that I absolutely love but can never find, the prints are gorgeous and best of all, the lengths aren't ridiculously short, never a bad thing in my book! I am always jealous of Sarah and her rather extensive collection, I just wish I could fit into it ;)

Dress: Emily & Fin, shoes: Clarks outlet at Street 
Just to illustrate how uncontrollable my hair had got before I had it cut: it had far too much volume, was looking kinda straggly at the ends and had absolutely no shape. Clearly my curls need a bit more structure to look half decent! This is definitely probably TMI but this dress makes my boobs look weird,  the stitching on this bodice is just bizarre and you end up with some ridiculously pointy boobs, a very strange look! 


Who can resist a giant bow on the front of their dress? Not me, that's for sure! I really like the pattern on this dress and weirdly it makes the humongous bow more subtle as you can only see it at certain angles- definitely something worth dancing about!


I love the soft pleats on this skirt and I'm not even fazed by the midi length which is unusual for me! I probably should have worn a little block heel with this skirt but I loved the bright pink with the monochrome and comfort was definitely the order of the day. These Clarks shoes get a lot of wear but have worn really well, even though they are suede- no mean feat when you consider how clumsy I am! 


Why can I buy more Emily & Fin dresses?

I love this dress, it looks perfect for heatwave dressing. I have a couple of Emily and Fin dresses from The Laden Showrooms in Brick Lane. I went last week for a browse, I came away empty handed but my mother bought two "Sarah" dresses in different prints! x

Definitely didn't notice the pointy boobs situation till you mentioned it Maria! Haha. You look lovely and those shoes sound so comfy - I am always on the lookout for comfy flats so I will have to pop into Clarks at some point!
