I have had these since Saturday but I just couldn't bring myself to post them after what England has witnessed over the past few days. Somehow my new dress seemed irrelevant when so many people have had their lives destroyed. It has been such an awful few days; I honestly cannot believe that something so animalistic can happen in my city and in my country. London is a strange place at the minute; people are on edge just waiting for more violence to occur. I honestly believe that this is not about poverty, the shooting of Mark Duggan, unemployment or lack of youth services. This was pure thugery. These looters destroyed lives, how is this justified? They ripped out the heart of their communities and for what? A new pair of trainers? I would like everyone to know that I am thinking of you and fingers crossed we can get back to normality.

Please take a few minutes out of your time and help this man. This picture really hits homes just how traumatic the riots really were. It breaks my heart. Things like this make me proud to be British. We are good people.

Anyway onto the outfit! My mum very kindly took pity on me and treated me this dress I had been lusting for over for week. It is just so gorgeous and I feel like a real lady! It will be perfect to take on holiday although I am not quite sure that flats will do it justice? I have a obsession with dresses that create a swirl when you spin round, I just want to skip along the street! Finally used this bag that I brought an age ago in Brighton. Not really had the right outfit to pair it with.

Hope everyone stayed safe these last few days.

  7. I saw the dress and rather admired it- you look lovely in it! Such a great colour and do have a twirl or two!
    It is definitely pure thuggery- and it's coming to light now how lots of the people involved had jobs or were students etc. not dirt poor, what with their blackberries and stuff. Hopefully that's the end of it now.

    Aaron's story is so very moving. I'm delighted how people rallied around that poor Malaysian student who had his jaw broken, too. x

  16. Your dress in stunning hun, suits you so well.

    As for poor Arrun! My hubby showed me the page a few days ago and it broke my heart for him. What a wonderful thing that so many people gave money for it to be fixed up for him. It restores a little faith in human nature.
