Dragon Dress

When I featured this dress in a Topshop Haul months ago all I could think about was how much it reminded me of dragons. The green criss cross pattern and the unique overlay cut out just screamed dragon to me. That idea seems to have stuck and this dress has been dubbed "The Dragon Dress" by anyone who's seem me wear it. I wasnt sure about it at first, it's not really my style as such. I dont really like wearing colour and I intitially felt the style was too "meet the parents" for my day to day wardrobe but Im glad I went with it and decided to keep the dress. Paired with my usual leather jacket and fedora combo it's a match made in heaven.

  51. My name is Debora Larry P, I am a single Mom, the father of my child left me two years ago and married his childhood girlfriend because of his mother’s influence and his mother never liked anything about me. I gave up on him and took my child away from his family then relocate to another state just to forget about him and start a new life. My new life was actually not going as I planned but I keep on struggling to cope and take care of my baby. I miraculously met a man who was staying five blocks away; he loved me and promised to provide for me and my child. We dated for three years before he asked me to marry him last December, I agreed because I found real love and peace with him and my son can’t stay without him.

    He suddenly started active weird after our engagement party like and evil spirit is controlling him, he always starts argument and fight in presence of my son and asked me for a break which I gave but something inside me tells me that he needs help and he will never come back to me if nothing is done either physically or spiritually to help him go back to himself. So I searched for help everywhere until I met Dr.Wakina temple via email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. Doctor did the reading and discovered pure love among us and a confused spirit surrounding us too. He finally cast a reunion spell on us and brought him back at the exact time he stated this February.

    My husband to be is back and he thanks Dr. Wakina for the spell that made him realize his true love and his wife. I thank Doctor too and will recommend him to anybody who needs help to contact him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. Thanks for everything Doctor.
