Shoes: New Look
Earrings: River Island
Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed this dress make a brief appearance in Sunday’s post as I wore it out on Friday night for my friend’s birthday. The dress had been on my wishlist for ages, so when I had to order a couple of things from ASOS a few weeks ago this managed to sneak into my basket too! Mango is never a brand I’ve bought from before but I really like this dress and I’m sure I will be ordering more from them in the future. I think the main reason I’ve never bought their clothes before is that they don’t seem very present on the high street – in fact, I have no idea where the nearest Mango store is. As much as I love internet shopping, I do like to be able to go into an actual shop to try things on or exchange items if need be.
I really love the colour of this dress, and it’s so nice to wear something on a night out that’s not black! I really like the cowl neck and the ribbon belt around the waist – all dresses should have belts in my opinion! The only thing I don’t like about this dress is the length, it just seems a bit awkward. It feels a bit too long to be a going out dress, but it’s not quite appropriate for daytime wear either. Usually I find I have the opposite problem, with a lot of dresses being a bit indecently short! I would say I’m pretty average height (5ft4 ish) so I don’t know why I seem to have such a problem!
Despite having a drawer stuffed full of jewellery, I almost always wear the same pair of earrings. I’ll put on a different necklace or ring every day, but for some reason I always forget to put in a different pair of earrings. I’m going to try and make more of an effort to wear different ones, starting with this seashell pair from River Island which I bought a couple of years ago. I love them, they make me feel like a mermaid!
