OOTD: Freezing in Florals.

December 13, 2013

Just because it’s -1,000° outside and the real flowers are all dead, doesn’t mean it’s too late to pay homage to the wonderful summer we’re all missing. I absolutely love this dress, it’s floaty, it’s that little bit OTT – but it’s “vintage daaahling”, so you can just about get away with it.

I chose baby pink with white crosses and Heather went for deep red with Aztec patterns on one finger and an  Egyptian eye on each thumb – very cool.

Google Friend Connect, Please?

October 3, 2012

Hope you’re all enjoying this wonderful downpour we’ve been blessed with today – I’ve had a lot of fun watching you all squirming around in the floods whilst in the warmth of work! Anyway, I ended up going shopping after work – joys of working in the city centre and here are some buys and sale alerts:
