When there's no-one left to fight boys like him don't shine so bright

Quilted faux leather jacket - Zara (similar)
Striped cotton midi dress - Asos via Petticoat Lane Market (similar style)
Patent pointed flats - Zara (similar)

This was the other gem I picked up from Petticoat Lane market. It all happened in a blink of an eye and I'm still not quite sure how it came into my hands. I'm very glad it did though! It's the same shape as this dress I have and it fits perfectly. It's my perfect length and sucks me in at the waist giving the impression I'm skinner than what I look. Please do this dress in more colourways Asos!

I wore this out today to meet up with an old friend for some Nandos and a very much overdue catch up. It's amazing where times goes! Then this evening will be spent snuggling in bed watching the rest of the second series of Homeland ready for the upcoming third series. I LOVE YOU BRODY! The DVD of the first series was hands down the best thing I ever brought my boyfriend. Evenings spent admiring Damien Lewis' *ahem* acting talents are my favourite kind of evenings.


  1. YOU LOOK AMAZING! It makes me wish I could pull off the midi length but it just makes me look shorter and well, frumpy.
