this should be enough to let you go

Having a little break from blogging over the festive season has left me feeling a little flat but now my brain is over loaded with ideas and a new direction. I love vintage fashion, especially dresses and as most of my nearest and dearest know I have a slight obsession. When people find out I don't actually own a pair of jeans they look astonished, I'm a lady and I wear dresses, everyday, so get over it. 
Comfort is key to me and a reasonable length teamed with classic hosiery is a winner in my book.

Dress - Vintage eBay // Cardi - Vintage Auntie Shirley // Lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss 107

This has been my favourite outfit for the last month, I had posted a obligatory mirror snap of a night out in London on instagram and a few people had commented on it. I paid a little bit more than I usually would for this dress, but the minute I saw it on eBay I fell in love, it had to be mine. I entered a bidding war and by George I was not going to lose! It's warm and cosy for the winter but still quite dressy. Auntie Shirley's black cardi picks out the black in the pattern perfectly. The icy blue and purple aztec style is slimming too and after piling on the pounds I'm in need of something a little more forgiving. 

Happy New Year everyone!
