When I look into your eyes I see something that money can't buy

Green floral midi wiggle dress: ASOS (similar)
Yellow peep toe heels: Karen Millen (similar)
Grey and yellow laser cut clutch: Primark (similar)

I was on a spending ban and then during a daily browse on ASOS - I'm not the only one who does this surely?! - I spotted this in the sale and promptly added it to my basket. There was an additional 15% off sale code so it came to £21, down from £48. I couldn't not buy it right? That's what I'm telling myself anyway. There's just something about the shape and style of this dress I've fallen in love with. My collection now consists of three and I'm trying to think of an excuse to buy another one. These shoes were a very kind hand me on from my mum's boss after she bought them in the sale and they turned out to be too small. Luckily for me they fitted just right! The colour is gorgeous and I've been itching to wear them for the past few months but just never found the right dress. Another reason why the dress was a good buy...

This morning I'm doing a bootsale with my nan and then rushing back home to get ready for a curry in Brick Lane this afternoon. I was kindly given a voucher via work so looking forward to stuffing my face with one of my favourite cuisines. You can't beat a Sunday afternoon stroll along Brick Lane - it's one of my favourite places in London.

Have you got anything planned for today?


  1. Mmm I love a curry in Brick Lane! Very pretty dress - nothing wrong with buying sale items when you're out of money!
