Disclaimer: in terms of super clear images, these wouldn’t win any awards but they’re the best stills I was able to grab from my video this time (grr) so I’m afraid it’s as good as it’s gonna get this time.
I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve gone on off on a tangent about how much I love a piece of clothing. I literally used to do it in pretty much every single blog post and it kinda got to the point where I sounded like a stuck record but my younger self was a fickle little thing and she fell in love with materialistic items far too quickly. And frequently.
Simpler times eh?
Well anyway my love for all things sartorial has returned with this stunning dress from MCXI. Now, I will warn you, the back of the dress is done up by knotting those pretty lil’ shoe string straps and therefore does leave you feeling a little paranoid that said knot will undo itself in public leaving you exposed to all and sundry (this is not a dress that you can wear underwear with).
I can confirm that this did in fact happen to me on a packed Northern line train home. Thank all that is holy for tit tape is all that I can say, or I’d have left that train a lot more red faced than I did.
Amusing anecdotes aside it was the perfect choice for the muggy weather we’re having in London at the moment. The jersey material was just the right thickness for it to keep me warm as the evening went on but not too warm that I had the attractive ‘I just felt sweat run down my stomach‘ sensation. Plus the sexy open back was an absolute Godsend in keeping me nice and cool on the tube.
I’ve wanted a little pair of ankle boots to style with a dress like this (and bare legs, which is a huge deal for me as I never get my pins out but these beauties gave me the confidence) and these Public Desire ankle boots were the perfect choice – they were surprisingly comfortable considering the height of the heel, and at no point did I feel like I was about to fall over from a great height which is pretty much all you can ask for in a shoe.

Guys it’s that time of year again when the Blogger’s Blog Awards has rolled around! I’d absolutely adore to be nominated for an award this year – ridiculous as it may sound it would probably make my life so if any of you absolute bae’s would like to vote for me (no obligation of course!!) it would be amazing. Any nomination would be perfect but I’d especially love to be nominated in the Fashion or Vlogger/YouTuber categories <33 You can vote by clicking here
