hand on heart

Hearts seem to be featuring alot in my outfits recently, i’m a little bit in love with hearts, they have been featuring alot in my illustrations too, so go figure?

This is my favourite feel good dress, perfect for wearing on a date, a first date especially,  I would say…not that anyone loves me. I think I will wear it for my cheeky blogging date with Jaymie next week. We have decided to do a little bit of vintage shopping and cheeky cocktails, it may get dangerous. Expect lots of photos of us being a bit silly and generally being a bit loved up with each other.

This dress reminds me of the sort of dress my Grandma would of worn in the 50’s, it covers everything and it is the perfect length, the hair is looking very betty page in these photos, I’ve recently been getting  it quite often recently ( you look like betty page) since I chopped my hair that I look like her, i think its a compliment, still not sure especially when a strange man approached me about it on the Met line home the other day.

I loved the responses to my little video, A lot of you were really surprised by how london I was, apologies for this, having to north london parents results in my slightly londony accent ( what some readers have called it) and the fact I am a londoner apologies for this, I hope it doesn’t repel some of you readers! haha

The dress was a topshop sale buy twenty whole pounds, I absolutely adore it, especially with a simple pair of flats like the ones I am wearing from office. 

Do you have a dress that makes you feel super special?

    Unfortunately I don't have a feel good dress, but it would be nice to. I like the one you're wearing, it seems perfect for a day out with friends.

    I have this dress too! I wore it to celebrate Valentines Day with my boyfriend (not on the 14th, so I didn't get people rolling their eyes at me haha). I seriously love your hair, can we swap?

    I did have a few feel good dresses, but not anymore, they no longer fit me and just make me sad instead, which isn't so great.

    My go-to dress is also a Topshop one. It's black lace and just smashing if I don't know what to wear. I love your hat πŸ™‚ x

    I love this dress but when I tried it on in the shop I didn't think it suited my figure πŸ™ It looks lovely on you though!

    Amazing dress! And that is a very Betty Page hair cut – I'm impressed you get your bangs so straight!

    This is lovely! I have a bad day dress- it's a size six (which I am not) so I love wearing it when I'm having a "fat" day! You look so lovely in this one πŸ™‚ x

    Loving the whole look, Ella <3 The print is adorable yet not overpowering. It looks sweet and fun.

    Stay beautiful!

    The dress looks fab on you, and your hair is really great that length! My wedding dress is my special one, It's bright red and 50's style from Candy Anthony at the bottom of the Oxo tower. I've been able to wear it since by styling it with different shoes, so didn't feel quite so guilty for spending so much on one dress!
