Floral Tea Dress



Dress: H&M   Socks: Topshop   Brogues: Office

Hah, look at me attempting my first 'look down, hand in hair pose' I've become a clichéd blogger, I'll be doing a post on Alexa Chung and cupcakes next! Don't hate me, I love Alexa Chung and cupcakes, but you know what I mean.

I feel like a cross between a granny and child in this outfit, but I see that as a good thing! Some of you may recognise this dress because I also have the stripy version! It's so comfortable and easy to just chuck on without any thought so I got it in 2 colours! Hah oh well, it was only £14.99. I went into town today to do a bit of shopping, so this dress was perfect, I hate having to fuss around with belts and tucking things in and buttons when I'm in and out of changing rooms. 

Today was bloody brilliant on the shopping front because I finally found what I've been after for weeks; a cream, sheer, long sleeved blouse. It gets better, I got it half price because there's a huge whole by the cuff  but it doesn't matter because I can easily stitch it back to the seem. The shop assistant thought I was mad, in fact she actually said I would be an idiot to buy it, then I bought it. Obviously she's not familiar with the concept of sewing.

  4. What a cute dress & a great price!
    People amaze me sometimes, I'm stunned by how many people can't even sew a button on!

    Thanks for your comment by the way, I think the maniquins were a bit werid for some people...I guess werid appeals to me sometimes

  6. I love that shop girls are lazy and think you shouldn't buy things when they are ever so slightly damaged because then theres a discount!!! You look adorable and not granny-ish at all.

  14. I absolutly adore this outfit
    Its look gorgeous :)

    I love the fact that being young means you can get away with wearing whatever style/era you want!

    This is just so cute
    and I also own little vintage shoes similar to yours, which my Aunt picked up for me at an op-shop for $6!!
    You have a very pretty style :)

  16. Love this outfit, I've been ummming and ahhhing over white lacey ankle socks, I really want some but I think my boyfriend (and friends actually) would seriously take the p*ss.

    You had me laughing at the Alexa Chung and Cupcakes comment, I know exactly what you mean, I think I might do a post on Katie Price and Fish Fingers and beans instead just to be controversial.

    I'm loving the poses by the way :) xxx

  21. I do that if I find something that can be sewed up or a button missing I ask for discount and then fix it up [or get my Mum to fix it for me]

  26. i love that dress! did they have it in polka dot too? i think i remember trying a similar one on in black and white polka dots but it didn't fit me right so i put it back. i wish it did fit me right now though! it looked like a perfect lunging about dress but still pretty.
