White Floral Dress

Dress c/o Pop Couture / Jewellery Temporary:Secretary / Blazer Topshop / Shoes Miss Selfridge

 Last week, I introduced clothing brand, Pop Couture and here is another dress from the same brand. I have been wearing it recently with a chunky cardigan but it will be a great dress to wear in Spring/Summer. I like making the most out of my clothes, I'm not one to wear for "one season". Makes me sound so economical, but truthfully, I am such a hoarder! I hate throwing or giving away clothes! I try to keep them all forever! I'm wearing the white floral dress here with my trusty old white peter pan collar vest as an extra layer for warmth. The neckline of the dress is quite high so the collar looks like it is part of the dress. (stylish and functional! I just wish it was vest was thermal as well!)

Year of The Dragon

Dress Pop Couture / Jewellery Temporary:Secretary / Nail Polish 17 Boots (mint choc chip)

I don't think I own a red dress, but I do now thanks to Pop Couture! I find it difficult to find a nice and suitable red dress. Thankfully, Pop Couture sent me this dress and I really like it but I have rolled the sleeves up as it was too long and flappy for me! It's perfect for Chinese New Year for when it is traditional to wear red as the colour represents prosperity, luck and fortune (yeah, I totally just googled this! Gee, I should really know more about the culture my parents come from). Do you own any red dresses? This red one also comes in black and orange but I thought I'd may as well go for red as I already own far too many clothes that are black.

Chinese New Year is tomorrow and traditionally lasts 2 weeks; honouring something different each day of the holidays. Honestly, it is really bad how little I know, I haven't really embraced it. Embarrassingly, I'm on wikipedia right now reading up on it. We're not so traditional here in this household, you see. We don't even go to see the dragon/lion dances anymore. Although, when I was little, the combination of loud drums, firecrackers and the dancing dragon used to scare me and make me scream, then I'd eventually cry hysterically!! I am still a big wimp! No surprises here but I'll be lacking in Chinese New Year photos - I don't think we have any plans - so I probably won't be blogging about it, but I know Winnie from Diamond Canopy won't let me down! I really like her food posts! I trust she'll have some good CNY blog posts in the next week or so!

Little Fille: Jasmine Hairband

Another really lovely head band/turban from Little Fille. This was in the same parcel they sent to me before Christmas along with my favourite Kiki/Minnie Mouse red bow! I also have some detachable collars too but haven't found anything suitable to wear them with yet. Probably because most of my tops and dresses have already got collars. I'm going to search for a nice top to wear Little Fille detachable collars with. As I mentioned last time, everything is handmade by her. You can quote TempSec upon checkout and you will receive a free gift with your Little Fille order! Support the indie retailers! :)

Outfit: Dahlia Heart Print Dress



Dress Dahlia / Jewellery Temporary:Secetary / Jacket ASOS / Nail Polish 17 from Boots

A change of scenery today. I'm wearing the Ann-Marie dress from Dahlia, the dress doesn't actually come with a collar, this is the same white top as I'm wearing in the previous post. My 2nd blog post for Dahlia is now on the website so please pop over to their blog and check it out when you have a spare moment!

Coral Jumper

Photobucket
Clothes TopShop

You'll probably notice that when I blog, I often say that I bought something ages ago or even years ago! I am not one of those bloggers who are on the ball with the latest trends and the newest collection that the high street has to offer - I haven't got the money to keep up! I always feel bad when someone asks me where I bought something, knowing that they want to go to the shops to check it or maybe even buy it, and I will end up telling them eg. "River Island...... in 2008". Well, here's another outfit that's not available to buy anymore (I am so last season). I bought all of this outfit with a TopShop gift card. I'm wearing a white crochet Peter Pan collar top underneath the chunky knit 3/4 length jumper (I'm still feeling festive?!) and a pair of polka dot burgandy shorts. My nail polish here is Pink Grapefruit by 17 from Boots. Both the nail polish and the coral red jumper was difficult to photograph, they're so bright!

New Year

Coat Topshop 

Firstly, Happy New Year everyone! Hope you're all wrapped up! The coat I am wearing in the photos above was one I bought a couple of months ago. Being so short, I find it difficult to find nice coats that don't dwarf me. I love coats from Topshop as they seem to be the perfect fit, but they're so expensive! This one is the right length. However, the sleeves are a tad too short! Awkward. The velvet necktie comes with the coat. I don't think they stock it anymore but have seen a green one on the website. 

I am thinking of ways to improve the blog, so let me know if there are anything that you'd like to see on the blog this year. Maybe I will try to feature more of my illustration work on the blog. I must've said that loads of times before! I have been meaning to start drawing again! If it isn't for a project, I never feel the need to do it! Maybe that can be my new years resolution! I think there's so much pressure for this year to be the best year yet. Does anyone feel that too? x
