dolly mixture

 
dress: primark
brogues: ASOS
ring: VIPXO

There are a million things I don't like about these photos - they're too bright, my eyeliner is way too thick and my stupid bra strap is showing but they took so long to get semi-okay tonight, and I can't be bothered to take anymore as my back hurts and I have a mega food baby going on right now! Beigel had his long overdue trip to the groomer today so after we went to a pub that lets dogs in (yes you read right, how cute!) and had some dinner. I had a huge burger and an even bigger dessert, I feel like it's all going to come back up every time I open my mouth!

I actually got this dress months ago, in the summer, and it's not really what I usually go for at all (I'm so on/off with polka dots but now I pretty much love them!) but I remember it being something ridiculous like £5 so I couldn't leave it there. It's been hidden in my wardrobe and I recently rediscovered it so thought it was owed its debut! I did have a black cardigan on too but the pictures just weren't going quite right. The dress also has a Luella-esque heart cut-out detail on the back which you can see here, and notice that my 'beehive' is actually a bit of a total fail!

I hope you're not sick of seeing me wearing polka dots already as I have a few more dresses with the same print that I am yet to post! Also, if anyone's interested in possibly buying this tunic from me, I'm looking at £25 including postage, it's a size 10 (worn once and washed), then let me know. I've gone a bit overboard with spots AND Peter Pan collars lately if you hadn't noticed!

Seriously not looking forward to getting up early for work tomorrow, I don't even know how I'm going to get back into my routine for uni. So totally looking forward to the higher fees for travel too, is it just me or does TFL's service also get worse as it gets more expensive? I need a big kick up the bum so I start learning to drive! Even if it's more expensive, at least I won't have to wait around for a smelly bus four (yes, four) times a day anymore! My dream car is a Volkswagen New Beetle in 'Gecko Green'! What's yours?

  2. I have this dress too :) and was actually thinking about wearing it the other day, as I haven't worn it since summer! Might have to crack it out sometime.
    The pictures are lovely, don't be silly. Polka dots are great, I don't think I could get sick of them.
    My dream car is a Nissan Figaro http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_2lmi1dp9Id8/SmiVfwIzd6I/AAAAAAAAAm4/hyqujv8yS5A/s400/NissanFigaro.jpg they are relatively new, but with that vintage feel. They're so cute! One day....

  9. I love me some polka-dots myself. I've actually been told I need to try different patterns, which is where I get my love for stripes as well.
    And to answer your last question about the cars, for me, anything old like a Volkswagon Beetle or Van or maybe a Tin Lizzie.

  10. I love that dress! It's not something I'd have guessed you would have bought but it really suits you! I actually bought it but it was far too short on me so I had to return it! :(

    My dream car is a Beetle too! I love them in so many colours so I haven't narrowed it down that far! There's two in my town that I'd LOVE to own though - one is red with a lovely 'bubble' font all over the sides saying "be mine" with a love heart (sounds weird but it's LOVELY!) and the other is in gecko green with birds on a branch down the side!

  11. Nothing wrong with your eye liner or hair! And not a food baby in sight, so fear not! :)

    TFL = a massive pain in the arse. Travel costs are getting ridiculous. And people say they may strike around the time of the Royal Wedding which'll cock up the trains big time! :(

    My dream car? Gotta be a 'stang! Love that car! x x

  20. I think the dress looks quite cute on, the bow and colour remind me of something a bit retro? The back is also adorable.

  24. These pictures are just lovely. Cute dress, and I love your brogues x

  25. This dress is really lovely - reminds me of Minnie Mouse. Will be lovely for summer - and a great bargain! I'm not really a car person so I'm happy with my little Corsa. The freedom driving gives you is fantastic - but the cost of it is scary! x

  26. Beautiful! I adore this look! I am on and off with polka dots too, but big ones like this are the best!

  30. I've wanted a Beetle since I was about 15! We are looking at getting a camper which I would love!!

    Cute dress, and I love your hair like that, adds a relaxed side to the dress.

  33. Your hair looks lovely up! My dream car has always been a beetle too, since I was about 10 years old! 3 years of driving and I'm on my second Ka lol beetles are expensiveeeee xo.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You look cute as a button in that dress! A beetle seems like it would really suit you as a car, I don't know why it just seems like it would go so well with all you outfits haha x

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is such a cute dress! And the shoes so lovely :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. tfl travel fees are going up again?!? fml. you look great in these photos, that dress is so cute. your hair looks so good like that xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really like the dress and the hair too! Don't worry about the back looking messy, I think it can look a bit too prim having it all pinned up perfectly! The dress is so girly, it's nice to make it more wearable with the dishevelled 60s hair and mannish brogues! Love jen xx

  40. Is this the dress with the cutout heart on the back? I've seen it on a few blogs and found it absolutely adorable. Wish Primark was in the US!

    I kind of dig the brightness of the photographs. Sure, they're a bit overexposed, but I think that imbues a nice glow onto your skin (not that it wasn't nice to begin with!).

  41. I absolutely love your outfit, it's so pretty! And you have gorgeous hair to. I'm defiantly going to follow :) x
