Please tell me why my car is in the front yard

peter pan collar black shift dress
Dress: Clothing At Tesco

Ah there's me saying I've never owned a little black dress and then I go and buy two in a month. To be fair this was bought for interview purposes / formal affair purposes so it's justfied. And at sixteen squid I think it's justified even more! I do have a bit of a love for shift dresses as you can eat a three course meal, breath out, and still have the stomach area hidden, plus the flair at the bottom always makes my legs look smaller than they actually are. Bonus.
I don't know if anyone saw my tweets last night but I'm on a complete chocolate and sweet ban from now until the wedding and already I'm dying with the need for sweet chocolatey goodness. My fingers are actually typing this post whilst my mind wanders to thoughts of kit kat chunkies dunked in tea and it's only been....1 day : / I try not to be a Moaning Melissa when it comes to weight but there is actually no give in my dress so the slightest .123213 of an inch will cause it to pop leaving me to saunter down the aisle in the nuddy. Plus it wouldn't help to be a bit healthier before the honeymoon considering my plan is to eat mexican scram with lots of melted cheese three times a day.
And on that high cholesterol note I'm heading off to watch geordie shore - why oh why won't Charlotte & Gary just be together and deal with it? They're like a more kebab shop less caviar version of Chuck & Blair and I love it.

  21. You are joking that was £16 from Tesco? Oh my...it is the dress of dark peter pan collar dreams! There is no Tesco by me that sells clothes...only food...it is so infuriating! Maybe I should try and find it online? It would be a sin to only wear this for work!

  22. I love that dress! I nearly bought it the other day too (for an interview) but I've decided I must get a suit instead. Ugh. You know you're getting old when you need to buy a suit. It looks really good on you though, I might just get it anyway :P xx

  23. I've always love the shift dresses and its cut (yes about making your legs look thinner!) but its rare for me to find some nice ones. This certain dress is one of the best by far, because of the collar. Just awesome!

    Craving for the chocolate is a nightmaaare. I'd recommend you to find an alternative, like having a spoonful of peanut butter or something really sweet to banish the craves. xo

  25. thank you for the comment on my blog- its clearlyy all about apple juice as a hangover cure!
    this dress looks amazing on you! I can't believe youre on a chocolate ban :( when i dieted I swapped normal chocolate for dark- one or two small squares is ennough (and i eneded up losing 2 stone); and with the stress of the wedding your bound to lose a little bit of weight- my sister dropped a dress size the month before.

  28. What a lovely dress-and such a steal at £16! The standard of supermarket clothing is being bumped up I see, this would have been £40 at least from Topshop!

    Great blog btw, I'm now following!

  35. I love this dress, the floral collar is so pretty! I have to say I'm really impressed with tesco's clothing range, I'd never even looked at the clothes from there until a month ago when I bought a few things, and the quality is really good with a nice little price tag too! Geordie Shore is one of my guilty pleasures, I want to hate it but I just can't because of Charlotte! She cracks me up :) xx
