Fashion Icon Friday

I thought I would start a few regular features so not all my posts sound the same. Throw a little imagination out there.

So I came up with Fashion Icon Friday (I've got others but we are not on the right day) where I post lots of pretty pictures and write about fashion icons that have been inspiring me recently.
Carey Mulligan is an English actress, most famous for her role in An Education where she was a BAFTA award in 2009. She was also nominated for a golden globe and an Oscar. She frequently appears in best dressed lists for her vintage inspired style and cute pixie crop. Her most recent film was Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps which she starred in with Michael Douglas and Shia LaBI am a huge dress fan, over 50 and counting, and this girl gives me major dress envy. She always looks so naturally beautiful. She never has the make up caked on and never has too much flesh on show. She is pure elegance. I much prefer her with the pixie crop than her longer hair, I wish I was brave enough to go for the chop. She just as good in her casual attire as she does when she scrub up on the carpet. An amazingly talented actress and a fashion icon, some women have it all!

This is my favourite dress. The pleats, colour and length all make me drool. Its the perfect dress and would look amazing hanging up in my wardrobe!

All images are from various sources on google.

Also id like to say a quick hello and thank you to my new followers. I know five is not ground breaking but its made me so happy to think someone enjoys my ramblings! Thank you very much!
