dress, new look
I tried taking some photos outside but you really can't see the dress and my tights very well. I hope you enjoyed the snap of Pugs my cat, she's so cute I couldn't resist taking a photo of her all settled on my bed. The dress is from New Look Generation 915 range in the sale. I was rather please when I came across it as I was desperate for a velvet dress to wear around Christmas but didn't want to spend a lot on one. It also has a very pretty subtle back. I love dresses with details on the back but often its over the top of really low so you can see your bra. Being that its age 13 it fits fairly well apart from the fact it's a wee bit short (it's not really, just I get really paranoid my butt is going to hang out when the hemline isn't even anywhere near it). The woolly headband is from h&m, they are good for winter accessories! Its black and gold, I hope that is obvious. I'm wearing two pairs of tights, one thick plain black with some patterned lacy-ish ones over the top. I don't normally like wearing patterned tights on their own at I am worried I'd look too slutty! Especially with such a short dress. The necklace is from Cow in Birmingham, a vintage store that is very decently priced which makes a change, perhaps I'm just too use to London prices. I brought the necklace because whilst I was up in Birmingham visiting my sister we saw the Legend of the Guardians 3D in the Imax cinema, such a beautifully made heart warming film! I loved every second of it and wanted to buy this necklace to remind me of my visit.
I've wanted a pair of wedge boots for a while now, especially a pair of black plain chunky ones that will go with everything. They keep feet warm yet stylish so whats not to love? Most of these (actually all of these if I'm honest) are out of my price range but a girl can dream! The illustration in the middle is something I just knocked up to make this post more visually exciting. I love those shoes! I'm particularly fond of the Sam Edelman, New Look and Urban Outfitters wedges. The Sam Edelman ones would have looked fab with the above outfit come to think of it. I like the ALDO ones a lot though as they incorporate the hiking trend, something I'm a huge fan of.
My camera is now officially awful. It does happen to have a number or war wounds including a huge crack in the display screen. I'm getting tired of it taking crappy photos all of the time. Does anyone have any ideas on a decent camera I should invest in? I'm thinking a digital SLR that is compact handbag sized, and easy to use. I want one I can snap in a hurry that will still take a decent photo and pick up on detail. I have a quick gander at Argos the other day but they're all about £300! Oh well guess I'd better save up!
