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.

    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 xx

    Love the dress! and also really like the jacket and bag you wore it with. The dress has character and it looks so much more interesting than normal shift dresses – not creepy in the slightest haha!

    Hahah I've seen this in store and really wanted it but I was put off by the whole being way too pale thing. It doesn't look to gothic on you at all though so I might take the plunge and get it! xx

    I love the dress! I bought a black dress with a white collar just because I wanted one like Wednesday Addams', haha. I liked the way you styled it too, the watch is really cute.

    you know whats creepy… I posted this dress at the same time?! I love it with bare legs so much better hence the post, but it will be looong time before I go out doors like that ha you look lovely in it 🙂

  22. 28th January 2013 / 12:15 pm

    Haha, you definitely don't look gothic, but I can see the Wednesday Addams in this dress (that's a good thing)! It's a gorgeous dress, so simple but definitely versatile and chic.

    It's cute! I used to love the Adams family and would plait my hair like Wednesday but then my parents would comment saying I looked like an old fashioned chinese girl lol. Brutal honesty.
