ellipsis

 
dress: Topshop
ring: Topshop

Photos a bit rubbish today, really need to get used to this wall instead of the one behind my bed! I got this dress a couple of weeks ago, I really love it, or should I say the idea of it. The collar is the cutest thing ever and I love the colour and length, but I can't tell if it's really horrible on me or if that's just my own doubts. I think it would have been lovely with some sleeves? I dunno if I like the way it makes my boobs look either. Gosh I'm a moaner!

I have two more spotty dresses to show, I did take photos of them all on today and something else too, but the pink walls are so harsh as a backdrop in the day and make me look so pale! I guess I am, but I don't need to be reminded! Then again it probably is time to bring out the fake tan again, glad I don't have a holiday booked yet as I can't imagine bearing all in a bikini, gross!

My hair has been slept on so it's sort of fell out and looks poo. I'm scared to take it out though because it's going to be a huge mess! Do you usually just wash your hair after you take out a fishtail plait? I'm too lazy and only do it about twice a week so it's either leaving it like this or doing some kind of beehiving business..

I should probably get an award for being the biggest waffler in the universe. I feel sorry for anyone that reads all this drivel! Let me know if you wanna take all the chocolate/sweets/noodles in my house as an apology from me, you'd be helping me out, believe me. I actually bought a Shake Weight (don't laugh!) the other week and have used it a few times now, the first time it absolutely killed! I've been slacking since I've been doing all the DIY and moving my room around, so shall restart operation 'slim arms' tonight! Hello biggest body hangup!

PS. Thanks for all the comments so far, someone said I might like it better in a bigger size and I agree, it seems like it would be better with a baggier fit! Gonna see if I can find one in store!

  1. Colour and collar is gorgeous, but I know what you mean about sleeves. I think it's cute, but will wait to see the other polka dot dresses before making final judgement!

  4. This dress is lovely, but I agree that it would look better with some sleeves.
    If this is your bed hair, I'm hugely envious! xx

  5. Ahh I remember you posting bout this dress. I personally think it looks lovely, you could add a belt though?
    I have big arms too but that's down to genes lol I don't think there's a shake strong enough to get rid of them! xo.

  8. Oh GAWD! I realise I wrote 'too' but I meant I have the same body hang-up! I don't think yours are big at all, sorry if you read it wrong beb! xo.

  10. I'll take the noodles cause I love carbs, but not the chocolate and sweets. I kind of want a Shake Weight. I got skinny but disgustingly untoned arms. But we all have our hangups.

    I like the dress. I think it looks cute, but I think a pop of eye catching color would be nice because this color is so tame. Maybe bright nails or a turquoise ring? Some complementary color on the opposite side of the color wheel.

  11. it's lovely! I prefer sleeves on things too, I like to know that I'm covered up if I take a coat/jacket off in case it's cold lol (weirdo!) xx

  12. The dress is absolutely beautiful and definitely suits you! I actually love how it has no sleeves, it gives it more of a 60s flair, I think. Looks wonderful, trust me!
    Also... you can never have too many spotty dresses ;)

  13. I usually prefer things with sleeves, but I think this looks lovely on you. And you can totally rock bed hair x

  14. Love the dress, I know what you mean about sleeves, even if they were short; they'd make me feel a bit more covered up :)
    lovely colour! :D xxx

  15. this dress is lovely, and it goes really nicely with your hair colour. it's strange how everyone has some huge body hangups, but noone else can ever see them! we're all the same :) xo

  16. that scallop collar really is the cutest!

  17. This dress is lovely, I would feel the same about the sleeveless thing too though. But I'm sure once you've paired it with a cardigan you won't be bothered by it, also in summer you'll be thankful (if we actually have the nice hot summer I dream about!)
    Quite intrigued by this shake weight thing, I hate my arms the most! So thanks for the tip.
    now I've waffled!

  18. Haha have you seen the shake weight episode of south park? my boyfriend made me watch it, quite funny actually. Anyway, i think the dress is super pretty and i cant see anything wrong with it on you! love the collar and colour :)

  19. Firstly its a really cute dress and i love the collar, it's an fab twist on the usual peterpan effort :)

    I agree with some of the comments above... the dress looks nice as it is but would look totally awesome with a belt or some additional colours, just so it breaks up the pattern a bit!

    I must say, personally, that the waistband looks a little out of place? I'm not sure if that's just me, but it doesn't appear to sit right. A belt would probably help this a lot!

    Love your blog xxx

  20. I think it looks really great on you but if you're worried about your boobs (which I ususally I am about mine, as they usually look big in dresses, which isn't always a bad thing!) wear a cardigan with puffed sleeves or some sort of detailing on the sleeve to even out the shape. That way you can wear this dress in the colder months too! bonus! But really don't think is dress needs sleeves as you wouldn't be able to see the cute collar so much.

  23. I love this dress and I am envious of how good it looks on you. Unfortunately I am rather large chested and it looked AWFUL on me, with no exaggeration. You could try a belt but I love it how it is x

  26. I like the dress on you, I think the style and colour suits you but maybe it would be better in a bigger size with a belt? just a thought. It probably looks different in person so I can't tell

  27. Keep this dress, or send it my way Emma, you beaut! x

  28. i really adore this dress!
    i love polka dots. (:

  29. I really like this, think it flatters you loads :-) Looking forward to see the other polka dot dresses, I'm after a navy one x http://phhoebee.blogspot.com/

  30. the dress is really pretty, i dunno if the pink backdrop does this particular colour justice but the shape is lush and you shouldnt worry about your arms, they look fine.
    my arms are my body hangup too (for opposite reasons, horseriding has made mine too muscly and blokey, yuk) it really limits what i wear, i could never do this sleeveless ensemble xx
