Woman in Black Navy



Blue Skater Dress: c/o Freemans.com

Well hello there! 'Scuse the lack o face in these photos, my skin has decided to be quite cruel and give me the gift of a coldsore, as much as I try and decline these gifts it seems to want to keep on giving. Obviously with the LDNLUNCH coming up an having to go looking like a giant scab I feel a bit crap, so it was a rather lovely surprise when I received this here dress. It's the perfect officey length and I might even be brave enough to wear it bare legged in the summer : / If you likey keep on your lighty (oh dear) or go and have a peek at the rest of their summer dresses here.
Oh has anyone else seen Woman in Black? I watched it last night and without sounding like a skeptical Susan I was a bit disappointed, I'd heard loads of hype about it being the scariest movie in a long time but I just didn't really get it? It just seemed to be 90 minutes of a silent Daniel Radcliffe trying to master a confused face whilst wandering around in the dark. Give me Haunting in Connecticut any day!
Not really much else to say really, ate a nice free Wetherspoons curry yesterday and I'm about to head out to buy some milk - Yes Katy, more milk! Next weekend is obvz going to be a lot better, quesadillas and bloggers = wins all round.

  8. what a lovely dress! I love the fit n flare shape

    I dont get the gype about the movie too, it probs is because it's his first movie after harry potter etc. But i don't get the hype about The devil inside too! The trailer was pretty scary but the movie itself wasn't scary at all but oh well! The horror movies these days aren't as good as they were xx

  12. Lovely dress! It's such a flattering shape.
    I really enjoyed Woman in Black and thought it was quite scary! Creepy women wearing black generally are terrifying to me though, I'm a bit of a freak and get sleep paralysis and I swear the woman in the film looks identical to the woman who creeps into my room when I'm dreaming. Err. That made me sound insane! I did spend most of the film hiding behind my popcorn though! Wasn't a fan of Daniel's acting either, he did just have that one confused expression on his face throughout the whole film! x

  13. Nice dress. I haven't seen the film yet, not sure whether I should. People are either saying it's really scary or not that good! x

  20. Hauting in Connecticut wasn't that the movie with all the dead people in the wall? That one was quite scary indeed! Bleh, only the thought of it! I realy love your dress :) it's fancy and playful. A great gift! xo Nikki

  24. Really? You didn't like the movie? I haven't seen it because I'm not that into horror-movies. The book however was SO good and SO scary... you know, for a book. (I have a very vivid visual imagination, maybe that's just it) Anyhow I hope you feel better soon, cold-sores are the worst.

    I really (!!) like the dress you're wearing! I would love to get my hands on it (or something similar) too.

  25. Lovely dress :)

    I thought the woman in black looked quite creepy in the advert, then when I looked at the listings to go and see it and saw it was a 12a I was completely put off. It can't be much of a horror film if people that young can go and watch it :) xx

  26. This is such a pretty dress. It fits you perfectly and it just is so versatile. I think it's the type of dress you can hang onto for years and team it with a oversized collar white shirt and tie pin for the office or dress it up like audrey hepburn with huge glasses. Great buy!

  27. Thanks for your comment :) I love the coral wedges too. 'Bright' pastels are the way forward if you're pale like us haha. Yeah, maybe opaque tights wouldn't suit most of the pastel kind of dresses :/ I'm terrible, I hardly ever wear dresses casually, I'm looking for some pink pastel jeans in the hope that they're easier for me to pull off! xoxo

  28. I still wouldnt watch The Woman In Black because I am the biggest wimp in the whole wide world! I did read about the plot on a website, and i wiki'd it too - i'm intrigued but i'm fr too scared to watch the actual film! Thanks so much for the comment on my skincare post, Eloise. I've only come to realise that clinique uses harsh chemicals in their products. I will have to enquire about what is best for my skin next time i'm shopping. The products I got was from a pack that my mum gave me where she had to purchase a certain amount to get the pack for a cheaper price completely suitable for my skin. When my mum goes to their counter, they are helpful. They definitely have samples to try, and they always seem to give expert advice. xxx
