Same Dress New Jacket

leather biker jacket
Jacket: Miss Selfridge
Dress: Missguided
Shoes: So You Shoes

First I want to apologise for the grainyness of these photos, my camera is a berk and I don't get how sometimes it'll take clear pictures like these and other times look like I've taken photos with a disposable? I guess it is 6 years old so maybe it's time for an upgrade, despite not being able to save for one till after the wedding I already have my peepers on the Sony NEX-5 so hopefully it'll come down in price at the end of the year. If anyone has any other good camera suggestions please let me know!
I actually wore this outfit for a meal at Ask with Thomas, I'd been looking for the perfect biker jacket for a while but a lot of them either made me feel like Danny Zuko or would only zip up if I sucked in my tum as far as it'd go, I found this on the Miss Selfridge website and it's pefect - baggy enough do zip up but heaps more fitted than a bomber. The dress is an old fave from missguided but alas it seems to be shrinking and showing off a lot more of my notsopeachey buttocks, thinking of buying it in another colour and sticking with cold washes.
Other than a gorgeous chicken pizza at Ask the weekend consisted mainly of Dexter sessions, getting angry when he ran off with that floozy Lila (oh sweet Dexter why must you cheat?), and making cupcakes that are too sickly to actually eat.

  4. I actually love the really blurry photo! I don't know why, I think blurs are cool (and obviously intentional). ood luck with saving. Leather jacket loving, it looks amazing, and I really need (yes need, not want, don't be silly) one too. It's like membership to an exclusive club and I want in xxx

    all my dresses shrink in length. I like to think it's because I eat my greens.

  15. Cakes too sickly to eat?! Surely not! Nice jacket, its always a plus when they can be zipped up, I always have the same problem too! Bet you'll be wearing it all the time now.

  17. I dig that jacket. And that Sony NEX-5 looks so nice! But why not go for a nice fujifilm finepix? I hear they're really good, and some not as expensive...! :O

    Haha, cupcakes too sickly to eat! Sounds like a lovely weekend! :)

  18. Love the jacket! It looks great paired with the blue dress too.
    I have the NEX-3 and I'd really recommend it, fingers crossed the 5 goes down in price for you! x

  20. i do love a good leather jacket. the colour of that dress looks so nice on you, i wish i could get one in every colour. i'm terrified of my missguided dresses shrinking, they're short enough as it is! omg i hate 'pardon my tits' lila, she is just so awful xx

  21. No cupcakes are too sweet to eat! blasphemous!
    I love the jacket, I have a green one from H by henry holland (bottle green, but their website described it as turquoise, so someone who works there is clearly colour blind!) that is as you describe... ie the ability to eat a lot and still zip up is present!

    How much have you got left to plan for your wedding? I'm already stressing about mine and it is around a year away... need to find a venue then hopefully the rest will fall into place!
    peace xx

  25. Love your dress! Black cycling shorts are the way to go with anything bum baring I find, got mine cheapy off Ebay. And omg I hate the season with Lila in it too! She's so irritating! At least she's more interesting that Rita though XD x

  27. I gave away a leather biker jacket years ago. Bollocks, I wish I'd kept it!!
    Never throw ANYTHING away when it comes to clothes! (I sound like my mother!)

    I totally get what you mean about "shrinking dresses" I wear leggings with some of mine rather than tights. They were quite demure when I bought them (the dresses) and now some are bordering on obscene! Cotton is the worst for shrinkage, I've found. ;D xx
