pretend to be nice





dress: topshop
cardigan: primark
boots: new look
rings: primark

Thanks so much for all your help with the last post! Seriously guys its helped me so much! I've already started drawing ideas for the final piece! Its so fun looking at what you guys love and hate, because I hate some of the obscure and "petty" things too! I don't think I say this enough but thank you so much for choosing to follow me, I never expected the blog to get as good as response as I get, Its overwhelming looking at my daily traffic and seeing my followers go up and up! I read every comment and although I don't reply to many of them, I WISH blogger had a better reply to comments system, they mean so much to me, just to know all my effort I put in for myself, the blog and you guys is worth it! Each and everyone of you means so much to me, gah I'm getting sappy but LOVE YOU GUYZZZ!

I bought this tunic from Topshop a few weeks ago when I bought the orange dress, but I couldn't decide if if it looked good on me or not, I find it a tad matronly, I feel very... prude? I dunno, I find it weird wearing high necked and long sleeved things! To balance this out I opted for 20 den tights (I get all my tights from Primark!) and my favourite The Horrors stylee boots! The tunic now comes in every autumn/winter colour imaginable! Im liking the white with the black collar the best, although my fingers are crossed for a inverted colourway, So I can continue channeling Wednesday Adams!

  2. I love the dress, I was scrolling down secretly wishing that it was from Primark or H&M and when I saw Topshop, it hurt me a tad inside, Damn living in a country with no Topshop!

  6. ASOS have a black with cream version for £24, and there's 20% student discount as we speak! I have it, it's wonderful :) also I've been walking past that green dress deciding if I like the colour or not - after having a bottle green uniform in secondary school it kind of haunts me.. I probably have enough Peter Pan collars for now though! xx

  11. I love the colour of the cardigan! and the dress looks so much better on you than on the topshop picture! is this the original length?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm still hanging on to the hope of a black one with a white collar. The white with the black might have to suffice x

  22. Beautiful combination of autumnal hues. I'm hitting topshop like a bat out of hell later this week and I may just have to invest in my own peter pan-collared number. Lovely as always. X

  29. I wanted this dress so badly, but it was waaaaaaaay to short on me! I love the peter pan collar, and the fact it's long sleeved. I was gutted when it was too short. I'm tempted to still buy it though and just work something out! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Aaaah, glad the project's going well! Can't wait to see it.

    I spotted these tunics the other day and almost snapped one up. Love the grassy green one on you! x

    ReplyDelete
  31. I tried this dress on and found the high neck a bit weird too! You look lovely though! and i might have to go and have another re fit of the dress now i've seen this lol.

  75. Nice dress, although I think it would be a little short for me! The burgandy DP tunic was nice but defo too short on me - I have short legs and long torso! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  76. that is the most gorg color green!
    Come Follow xoxo

  77. i LOVE this dress.
    i tried this colour on, but i think i'll look like a pixie because of the green. i don't have a lot that'll go with it without the mythical look.
    REALLY want it in the burgundy.
    i tried the cream/black contrast on, it's lovely but quite see through, underneath layers or nude underwear are needed (:

    keep up the fabulous blog
