Creepy Little Black Dress








Where did you get that?
(exact items or similar)
I must start off by saying that this black dress from Topshop is not creepy (like, it's not haunted or anything!?) and you don't turn in to a creep or even look like one, but when I put it on, it makes me feel like Wednesday Addams! Especially because I'm not very tanned (ok. pale.) and I've got dark hair as well. 

It's not like I need another LBD and this one cost more than what I would usually spend on a simple shift dress but I hope to get a lot of wear out of this dress. I made the impulse purchase when I saw how it was worn on the TopShop website and I really like how the model is wearing the dress but there's a while to go before I bare those legs!

It's a really simple look but I guess I never visualise wearing a dress without tights - not in the UK anyway for most of the year - too cold! Maybe when I wear the dress in the Summer, it won't feel as gothic.

  2. Haha when I first saw the title and looked at the picture my first thought was 'well thats not creepy!' Its wonderful Sarah! But yeah I can see why you'd feel like that haha it is very similar to what she'd wear. All you need now is some plaits - c'mon!! ;)

    Love everything though as usual, want that ring <3
