minnie mouse






dress: primark
coat: boohoo
rings: jwlry, H&M, love hearts and crosses*
nails: models own bloobloo* and 99p store glitter polish
boots: topshop (albas)

Had a super lazy day today and I may have just donned this outfit for the sake of a blog post! But I just wasnt feeling it today. I have a terrible sleeping pattern at the moment and when I did manage to sleep for a bit last night I had really bad nightmares resulting in me waking up covered in sweat and shaking. Not good. However, Onto the outfit. I do really like this dress, I bought it from Primark last week, it was probably about a tenner, not bad I dont think! When I wore it nearly everyone commented on it looking like Minnie Mouse, hence the title! But its cute

Off to London in the morning, Its been nearly a month since I stepped off that oh-so-familiar train into Paddington. Fingers crossed it leads to me finding a new home... But if not Im just going do some shopping for most of the day. Have some River Island press vouchers to spend and I best get them spent before the S/S collection comes in and ruins it all! I also fancy spending my xmas pennies on some new make up! Got my eye on some YSL stuff at the moment!

  30. That dress is so cute! I had a similar one in a lovely rusty colour from Tesco but it was just so static that I had to get rid of it :( It used to bunch up against my tights and make me look like I was wearing a nappy! Definitely not a good look!
    Sorry to hear you've not been sleeping well :( Hope the nightmares go away soon.
    Good luck on the house hunt!

  38. I nearly went for that dress but wasn't sure about it. It looks lovely on though (typically couldn't face Primarni's changing rooms!). Nail polish looks lush as well. I'm feeling a move to pastels...

  56. Sometimes Primark really come out with some cute pieces and I think this dress might be one of them! I think I'd best get myself into town to have a look!

  59. I'm loving the Minnie Mouse look! I always go for this print when I'm shopping, it's so cute and fresh. Love your nails too, I'd actually gone 3 weeks without biting mine and then NYE stress took over and off they went! I've got so much nail varnish that it seems a shame to paint my scraggy nails, so I usally just get falsies. Really like the ring on your middle finger on your left hand, it's goregous!

  63. A polka dot red dress has it all so could be hard to not look ott, but you've styled it all right! The black accessories and clothes tone it down to a way it looks a really nice dress. I love the baggyness of your cardigan, and your boots are lovely!x

    ReplyDelete
  64. I have a dress quite similar to this one and people always say I look like Minnie Mouse in it too, but that doesn't bother me at all, I love Disney!! I love your nails in this post too, the glitter works so well =)
