Honestly I'm Down Like the Economy

Dress: Missguided
Necklace: Accessorize

Scuse the title, I'm listening and wailing along as I type.
I was pawing all over the Missguided dress page after winning a giveaway on Amy's Blog and I initially used the oh so generous voucher to buy this feather print dress but the silly delivery man posted it through the wrong door : / Despite posting him a polite note the old chap in the other house won't answer to me so Missguided's customer service were pretty awesome and let me choose something else as a replacement. As much as I love leopard print I usually shy away from it as I'm almost mid 20's now and feel I could come across a bit Bet Lynch? This is perfect as the print is far more dulled down and the pastel pink makes it more wearable and less Weatherfield.
Gah I feel I should fill this post with tales of frollocking in the sun and other summer antics, instead I was completely bitter yesterday at having to part with £400 for my car to pass it's mot and actually snarled at the poor woman who took my card payment. I did try and seek refuge in three Gold Bars but even their caramelly goodness didn't help! Ah well, next weekend I get to see my Nephew and shop for bridesmaid dresses so I'll look forward to that instead.

  2. Haha, I had to google Bet Lynch- quite a character she must have been! This leopard pattern looks much more subdued and girly, I actually like it better than the dress you missed ;)

  4. Grrrrr MOT's are sooo annoying, I did giggle slightly at you snarling the woman who took the card payment. I do things like that sometimes just to try make myself feel abit better. Oh and im 27 and rock leopard all the time haha yeyyy for Bet Lynch and Kat Slater, that said you dont look anything like either of them. The dress is super pretty, could easily spend a fortune on Missguided x x

  12. I LOVE gold bars, so so moreish, I could easily have a whole pack but unfortunately my boyfriend always beats me to it and I'm lucky to get one haha!


    This dress is gorgeous by the way, absolutely amazing! Its like leopard print but softer, I'm the same with as you being almost 23 and not wanting to look brass! I'm tempted about this, is it short? I'm 5'8!!
