Green and Vintage

Sp before mum chopped my hair off the other day, we went charity shopping and I couldn't resist this deep green vintage Marks and spencer's dress, I did have to squeeze my boobs into it a bit, but it fitted amazingly around my waist and at a size 10 I couldn't believe it. I do need to cut the length of the dress, I think it may be my perfect summer dress. The dress itself I picked up for £1, the lady who sold it to me told me the story behind the dress, she had bought it for her daughters graduation, but she no longer fitted in it, and wanted to give it away to a new home and she thought it would look great on me, what a lovely lady.  I am desperately missing the sun, my skin has never been so pale.

In the third photo you can see how wonky my hair had actually got since I had damaged it with bleach, it was taking this photo that made me realise I had to chop of my hair. So these are the last photos taken of me with long hair.

In other news I have some really fun tutorials coming up and a few vlogs, it will probably just be me rambling about life but i hope you enjoy what I have been working on.
