D'you reckon that they do it for a joke?

Burnt orange midi boho dress: Zara (similar)
Nude leather courts: Topshop (similar)
Lip crayon: Cover girl shade 215

I saw this dress in a Sunday paper magazine and decided there and then I just had to have it. It's not usually what I would ever go for but something just drew me in. I think I was hoping to channel my inner Sienna Miller that day. It was a tad overpriced but it was payday and I threw caution to the wind. You do have to be extremely careful with it as it does tend to snag if you're not careful. Serves me right for purchasing such a delicate piece I suppose! I'd been eyeing up these courts for weeks and was frantically selling on eBay to help pay for them. Just as I had enough money I learnt they'd gone in the sale and were sold out online but I managed to find them in a branch near work. I think it was fate! Real leather shoes for £30? Not bad Topshop, not bad at all.

Have you ever taken the plunge and bought something not your style but loved it?
