Lately I have found that I've lost almost all inspiration whilst putting outfits together and have ended up looking like a teenage boy most days which is not a look I'd like to go for ideally! In the past I have been partial to phases where I adorn nothing but skirts and dresses, although always with flat shoes as I am rather tall at 5ft 10. However, I am feeling a revival of wearing such outfits after seeing Dionne Bromfield's music video for her song 'Yeah Right'. The video has a great feel, not only featuring some really lovely outfits, but it was also filmed in Draper's Hall where some scenes of The King's Speech were filmed! One of my favorite outfits in the video is this River Island mini dress which I had my eye on for a while but it has unfortunately sold out now. I like everything about this dress, it's leopard print, features a cute bow, and is what I imagine to be a very flattering cut, especially the sleeves. Perhaps I will come into some luck & snap one up on ebay!

It is my 21st in a fortnight & so I am also looking for a nice dress to wear to dinner with my family. I came across this beauty whilst browsing the Topshop website, although I am quite wary of the cream colour. I think I would purchase it straight away if it was in a different colour! I'm also not convinced that I would get a lot of wear out of it as it is definitely an evening dress, which is a type of dress I do not require very often. Thoughts?

I thought I would keep this post fairly short, as I am still getting to grips with this (this being blogging in general hehe!). Thanks for reading! xx

first post!

I always find first posts a little awkward when beginning to use the various social networking / blogging sites I have used over the years! I am hoping to use this blog as a way of documenting the goings-ons in my life (although admittedly it can be rather mundane at times) and  posting my observations and opinions. I currently have a tumblr (, although I am hoping to use it a lot less for various reasons; mainly that it often feels rather impersonal and is largely based around images. I do, however, use tumblr to blog about some of my interests including kitchenalia,  thrifting, crafts & all things homemade, music and to an extent style & beauty, which I hope to also document here further. 

Thanks for reading & I hope that someone will at least read/enjoy some of my future posts :)
