About your dress

I think ive found my birthday dress. I have to buy a new one because there is nothing suitable in my wardrobe for turning 22 of course. I can't resist adding a new dress to my over growing collection.

I found this beauty whilst trawling the Topshop website. It is a tad pricey at £43 to be honest and it is not that different from my polka one from Primark that I paid a mere £13 or £15 for. But I have a Topshop voucher left over from Christmas so thats £15 off it already. Once ive deducted student disocunt it will be £23.70 if my maths is correct. Not that much more than the Primark version then.

Im really into different shades of brown, Ive exhasted the Camel trend so I think its time for me to venture out into the "Rust" trend. I could pair it with my nude platform and gold sequin bag. I just hope it does not disappoint me in the flesh when I go the Oxford Street branch in a couple of weeks. Im going to have to have blinkers on when I get to London.

On a side note Id just like to say a huge heartfelt thank to everyone that reads or follows my blog! It means such a lot. I know 25 followers isnt a huge amount compared to some but its more than I ever could have imagined! Thanks guys :)

  12. That dress is lovely, go for it Sophie! Bet it'll last longer than the primarni version anyway. Sally x

  13. i love the colour and the pussybow and its nice in real life too - the material is heavier then the primark ones and it has more shape :) x

  14. The dress is so pretty and I think styling it with nude heels and gold bag would look super glam, perfect for a night out! It's all about rust at the minute, I've got a few items but I'm still lusting after this Topshop camel cape, but it's £95 and that's fa too much for me!!!!!
