New Favourite Dress

Another autumn floral dress which has become one of my favourites! I love this one because it’s got sleeves! I love dresses with sleeves, because I hate my arms – they’re so stupidly long, like a monkey or Mr Tickle! I like to hide them whenever I can. This pretty dress is from a small independent company called Sosolo and I think it suits the current Seventies chic trend, I really like the fit and the flattering length for a short arse like myself. The parcel was perfectly wrapped, indie retailers go that extra mile 🙂 Sosolo are a fashion company that offer a range of vintage clothing, and also stock one off items from up and coming designers. I am happy to announce that we provided Sosolo with some stock and is now  Temporary:Secretary’s newest stockist! They have been so fantastic to work with. I have been so unorganised these past few months and they have been incredibly patient with me. You can visit them at, or interact with them on their Twitter or Facebook page they have a blog too, there’s some really cool posts on there and their enthusiasm for fashion really shows. 

I’m sure I say this every month, but I can’t believe it’s October! I have a lot of birthdays to remember in October, so got to remember to keep track of the dates. I have no concept of time these days. I wake up most days not knowing what day it is! In two weeks time, I am taking a mini break to use up annual leave days, though. I think Oscar wants to come with me too!

    Such a pretty dress, it really suits you. Will check out your interview now, really intrigued to read the answers after seeing you achieve so much!

  36. 9th October 2011 / 8:24 pm

    Tell me please, what is not to love about Oscar?! I do, I love him.

    Love also this dress querida, absolutely beautiful and all the more so for being on you. I like half sleevs for the winter (well any time to be honest) because although I like to cover ym arms, I have a really bad habit of rolling/pushing up my sleeves all the time, which completely wrecks them.

  37. 9th October 2011 / 9:39 pm

    I absolutely love this dress and the flower/ladybird ring – I want! x

  38. 9th October 2011 / 10:08 pm
