What I Wore to LDNLUNCH




Dress: Motel
Cardigan: Newlook
Necklace: Primark

So here's my outfit for ldnlunch, I went with my usual leaving the house attire (whilst in the house I'm a complete slob and can be found lounging in tracky b's) of a dress and a cardigan and was rather happy with the result. I'm loving kimono type knits at the moment and this bad boi from Newlook seems to go with everything. Apologies for the word "boi", some drunks were shouting "He's an old stone island boiiiii" repeatedly on the train on the way home and I've adopted it as my own : / I'm also planning on trawling the internet for this dress in other prints, I swear I've seen a cosmic version somewhere and I'm determined to jaunt through the streets of Mexico wearing it.
In other really boring news I am now officially getting my save on for the wedding, there's loads of little things that just seem to get missed when you're working out a budget and I need to start hoarding all my pennies together to afford them. Like today I ambled into Staples to find a gold pen for the invites (cliche eh?) and slumped away 5.00 lighter. FIVE POUNDS for a gold and silver gel pen! I remember back in the day they were 99p each and those were for the swish Signos!
With my bitterness towards stationary in mind I'm going to have to think of some frugal blog posts, so rather than my usual materialistic "look at my pretty dress" pictures I was thinking of copying Sara and doing a question and answer video? If you want to ask me any type of question, be it anonymous or not, then you can leave it as a comment below or on my formspring and I'll attempt to answer it with my voicebox in the next week or so. The weirder the better in my opinion.

  3. ooh i had the same thought when i last went to staples, i wanted one of those box files with all the diff sections in it to keep my dress-patterns, as once i unfold them from the envelope i can never seem to fold them up right to get them to fit back in again, and everything was ridiculously expensive!

    love this outfit, and i hope that everyone had a lovely time at LDNlunch- gutted i missed it! xx

  12. Staples is soooo expensive these days, mind you, isn't everywhere?!

    Love your cardigan. I wonder if I'm a funny shape or something, but when I try on dresses that are pretending to be a top and skirt they all end up looking funny, like the waist ends up under my boobs! >.<

    Hmmm, can't really think of a profound question to ask you.... do you like the new chocolate philly cheese?!
    Not profound, but interesting all the same! ;D xx

  15. I love your dress with the necklace, the colours are lovely. The dress will be lush in other colours too, you should be sure to post about it if you find one. I love the kimono knits too, baggy stuff in the (now ending) winter is my favourite xx

  28. Wow I love the dress so much! Great print on the top and such a lovely combo with this nude cardi!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My sister has that cardi and you have certainly inspired me to pinch it,my question for your video is what do you typically eat on a regular day and do you have a fitness regime also who is your style icon and why xx

  33. & very pretty in person you looked too! TBH you're better off buying a pricey pen, I got two cheapy ones in the pound shop at Christmas and one was missing its pissing nib!! what a jip!
    Good luck with the invite writing, don't spell anyone's names wrong! ;)

  34. £5 is extortionate for a couple of gel pens! I literally used to collect them in primary school, they must have been dirt cheap to have a pencil case full. Lovely outfit, very big fan of this dress!!

  42. A fiver for two pens?! That's absolutely mental! I haven't bought one in years but they were definitely way cheaper than that when I did!

    Your dress is absolutely stunning :) x
