January

I’m not much of an outfit person I am far too shy, but this is me being brave and showing my face around here for once.
This is my New Years Eve outfit, which turned out to be quite a fabulous night.



This dress first caught my eye on Alex's blog, I was thrilled to see a dress that not only ticked all the boxes, but was a reasonable price too. Alex wore the brilliant turquoise version, well I hunted and hunted and could not find this dress.
(Well I tell a small lie I found one lifeless cream one in a size 8 and one black one in a Size 16, when I needed a size somewhere in between)

I finally tracked down a whole rail of these dresses in an aubergine colour, which at first I was little hesitant about, however when trying it on I decided to take the plunge and go for it. (for once)

This dress was £13 from Primark and I can’t stop admiring the subtle but oh so lovely embroidery and the sleeves are simply a girls best friend.

And also I think Primark have been very clever in the design. It does remind me a little bit of a French Connection dress I once was very infatuated with a few years ago, unfortunately the £130 price tag put me off.

Happy New Year everybody

  15. Oh it looks perfect on you! I didn't see that shade in store when I bought mine but that's probably a good thing - I look terrible in aubergine. I'm very jealous that you look so pretty in it!!
