Dress: Fashion Culprit*
Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins
Boots: Ebay

If you watched my Getting Ready video the other day you might recognise this outfit. The dress arrived in the post that morning so I decided to put it on straight away and give it it's first outing. The dress has a gorgeous floral print with little pink roses, and a lace peter pan collar - every blogger's dream! It's made from quite a heavy jersey fabric so it sits really nicely and feels like great quality, much better than I was expecting it to be as it's only a tenner at the moment!

Fashion Culprit weren't a brand I had heard of before, and I don't think they would have necessarily caught my attention unless I had tried out this dress. If I'm 100% honest, some of the clothing on their site is very not my style (like, um, this dress, but is that anyone's style? Apart from if you're a Strictly Come Dancing contestant, perhaps), but if you dig a little bit deeper there are some hidden gems for really good prices. I love this heart cut out dress and this diamante collar chiffon shirt.

It's that time of year again when everyone starts apologising for the dingy outfit photos, so yeah, um, sorry about that! It seems to be constantly dark in my flat and unfortunately I don't have a garden or anyone on hand to take 'on location' photos. Unless one of you wants to be my live-in photographer? I jest.

What do you think of Fashion Culprit?
