The best part of blogging for me has always been the community. I have made some wonderful friends and I will never cease to be amazed by the helpfulness of people online, especially when a pretty dress is involved! ;) I first saw this dress on Alex and fell immediately in love but unfortunately it was out of stock online in my size and my local store didn't have it either. Luckily, Alex is all kinds of awesome and managed to find me one in my size and get it posted out to me from a store up by her and I couldn't have been more excited than when I opened up my parcel the other week, you have to love 'Internet friends'!
I do actually already own a tapestry dress from Warehouse but I tend to keep that for nights out as it is quite a bit shorter and way more cleavage-y! This however has a beautifully high neckline and a lovely A-line skirt and thus is even appropriate for work! I am a big fan of buying clothes that I like in as many colours and cuts as possible as I know that I suit them or at least will want to wear them. The colours in the pattern are absolutely beautiful and I imagine my jewel toned tights will be getting lots of wear with this little dress. I wanted to wear my burgundy coloured tights but they clashed with the only cardigan that worked, so I had to wear some boring brown ones instead #fashionbloggerproblems. I felt kind of like a jazzy librarian in this outfit (I blame the shoeboots/cardigan combo) which is never a bad thing!
Keep an eye out for a post featuring my new glasses soon, I was a bit more adventurous with my choices this time round and this pair are such a gorgeous shade of burgundy purple! You can also see the print better here too, just look at all those beautiful colours!
Although it won't be for everyone, I really like the fact that this is sleeveless, I am never a massive fan of sleeves and actually this gives me a few more options for layering too- is anyone else picturing this with a lovely polo-neck?
In other news, you may remember that I was trying to lose weight and despite eating far too much bread recently, I have managed to shift a whole 5 lbs! It may not seem like much but it has given me the motivation I needed to spur me on! :D
Do you buy duplicates of clothes you love or am I just a crazy hoarder?! (P.S. Don't answer that!)
