grunge florals













Vintage Cardigan
Office Boots
River Island Necklace
Nails (see this post)

I've not done an awful lot today apart from work at my computer so I didn't really dress up too much. I just knew I wanted to wear this dress and layer up with a cosy vintage cardigan. It's just so warm and cosy and perfect for my drafty house! As I mentioned yesterday I decided to wear my new Topshop dress, which  I adore. The pattern is just so unique and reminds me of William Morris or something like that. The shape is like the check dress I wore last week with a zip up the front, although the slit at the front is bordering on risqué but I do love it! Paired with this ASOS bowler hat that I haven't taken off my head since I found it. It's just amazing and I love the way it finishes off a look and hides my dreadfully flat hair!

 I also made a video to go alongside this that took so much less time than the one I made the other day so managed to fit it into my schedule! Again Im happy with how it came out, hope you liked it! I've also used bigger pictures than I normally do, let me know what you think! Im tweaking little things about this blog at the moment to make it a bit more reader friendly! Any feedback will be greatly received!

  9. Ooh I really love your hat. I can never get a bowler to suit me though as I have extremly large hair and they just never seem to go over it well enough without making me look like Mr.Ben! Super pretty and unusal dress too! X

  46. I love the dress - the fit and the floral pattern. I'm not much of a floral girl myself, but the grungy-ness of this style is def. something that I would wear.
