elephant grey







swatch watch
asos spike necklace*
claires accessories bracelets*

Excuse the sneaky bra poking out, I am gonna wear a top under this when I go out as I didn't realise quite how revealing this dress was. I've had my eye on this dress for ages but I never got round to getting it. I really should have bought the smaller size but I cant be bothered with the faff of returning it! I only paid £22 as there is a £10 off code you get sent when you make your first order from the website. So it's not too bad. I love the elephant grey colour and the shape, I don't have anything like this so it was a nice addition to my wardrobe. I would say that it's a bit gutting as I expected it to be long enough to actually be a dress (Im 5ft5) but It shows way too much off so I paired it with some leggings instead!

I can confirm that these shoes hurt like a beeeeyatch. Despite how pretty they are they are super painful & I've got a few blisters but Im determined to break them in so Im wearing them out tonight to an event! I'm off to a Boohoo event with a ton of other bloggers to the Ice bar! I've never been before so Im super excited about going. It's on my list of things I want to do but never actually get around to doing!

  39. I'm not usually into grey, but this is lovely! I hope you enjoy the ice bar, I was a little bit disappointed with it, but I think that was mostly because I was wearing flipflops (I didn't know I was going!) :/ x

  42. Grey is my favourite colour, so versatile. Still going crazy over those shoes too... if it wasn't so cold already I'd snap them up right now! Ah, do I don't I?!

    Love the dermals peeking out the top! Looks rock 'n' roll ;-)

  45. Your hair colour is so lovely! My boyfriend's got me the petrol green version of this dress for Christmas, I can't wear it as a dress either though as I'm 5ft 7". They should definitely make them longer!!

  46. I have this dress in an orange colour and wear it as a dress - I'm 5'9"!!!!! I'm usually concious about super short dresses though so I'm sure it must be an old style or something cause its not too short haha! xx

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've eyed this dress up loads, but it's the length that's put me off ! You look super pretty in it though! :)

  49. I'm not too fond of the shoes tbh, but your taste is yours! I used to want this dress but was never too sure. It was featured bloody everywhere in the same too colors, that green-blue, and black. I rarely saw the gray version, but it looks lovely! Shame about the length of it! Looks as if your bum hangs out from it.
    I also love how you paired it with that bowler hat :3 Need to wear mine at some point
    Also did you cut your hair?? xx

  50. Beaut, wish I had the confidence to pull off a bowler!

    Are the leggings the disco pants, or the thinner high waisted actual leggings?

  55. I've wanted this dress for ages from love, I always get tempted when they do flash 40% off but never got round to it. I might have to now though as I love how you're wearing it. Especially how you've made it into a tunic top rather than a dress. Clever idea.

  56. Argh, I really love this dress shape but thats whats endlessly put me off- it looks SO short. And Im 5ft8 so I reckon it really would be just too short :(

    Lovely looking though! x

  57. Those shoes look a bit painful, but so beautiful nonetheless!

  62. I've actually bought this dress after seeing it on you. I'm going to a wedding in December and I think this will be perfectly Wintery all styled up with sparkly accessories, leggings and ankle boots. I may have to buy a fur coat for the occasion too!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thank you for being honest about the shoes hurting, I usually just grimace and lie about them being "like walking on clouds". Stop by my blog if you can, mine is all about thrifting and saving money; plus I just did a post on my new Paraders dress and a floral crown, plus I'm doing a give-away tomorrow! Hooray! Thanks so much!
