Wine Wednesday ......

Hi Lovelies,

I had a little pamper at the hairdressers today which is always a nice way to spend the afternoon, so I am feeling a little more chilled than I was yesterday. A knock at the door also helped brighten my day ........

I'm really missing my husband this week.

I have found a dress that I want so badly I could eat my own arm - which would be ridiculous -  this dress is all about the arm detailing, and having one less than I should would totally ruin the line ...........

It is this beauty from Roksanda Ilincic. I am going to use it as my VOD but I really want it to become a reality ......... now where could I go to justify wearing this!

Margot Lantern Dress £950

I would team it with these silk shoes from Acne (but it would also look amazing with a pair of nude heels)

Turquoise Alice Platform Shoes by Acne £360

and this clutch ( I love that the front of the clutch is the shape of the Pigalle Shoe!!)

Pigalle Satin Clutch by Christian Louboutin £495

My Topshop order has been despatched. So should be here tomorrow. I ordered these two pieces.

China Floral Print Dress £36

I am only an ickle one, but I have ordered the dress from the Tall range as I want it to fall to the knee so that I can wear it right now as a more ladylike daytime dress with a little jacket over the top. I will let you know tomorrow if my cunning plan has worked out ok!

Beaded Peter Pan Collar Blouse £34 

This little blouse sells out as soon as it comes back into stock so I was pleased I managed to put one in my basket yesterday. Such a great price for such a detailed little top.

I also found this little cutie in New Look. I never usually have any luck in here, but my friend Vic always finds amazing things that look much more expensive than they are. Anyway, this top looked kind of vintage and it was a great buy at £22.00 !

Blush Paisley Lace Top - New Look £21.99

I am going to wear it with a nude or black vest underneath. 

It is of course Wine Wednesday - Today I am having a glass of this (and a Cadburys Creme Egg!)

Thanks for reading my blog, I really appreciate it x

Until tomorrow

I like that pink dress. I think I could pull that off with a pair of my white Converse.

Good Blog.

Dress looks best in the hands on hips shot. You'd have to be permanently a bit cross :)

And you get lots of flowers!

I also love that dress, gorgeous! I never find anything in New Look either, so am always interested to see people finding good stuff x

I would actually wear it with your pink converse honey, you know the ones you usually only wear around the house ......... ;)

Jools said...

oh I love the voice of reason, Its just the first dress in a long time that I have seen and thought WOW!!! I could try cross ;) x

I will dream about that dress tonight honey.

New Look is just one of those shops that I will go to as a last resort if I can't find anything anywhere else lol x
