Tan Spot 50s Sundress

I've been dying to show you all this dress which I brought on Saturday, with Valentine's Day over and all the excessive lovey dovey posts gone the time has come! I first saw this dress on Lydia Lee's wish list last week, I liked it, but not enough to buy it. Then when I was in Topshop my mum pointed it out to me and I said "yeah I know it's nice isn't it" but I still didn't have a proper look at it. On my third encounter with the dress as I walked past I finally noticed the back detail and fell in love! There were only three left, luckily one in an 8!





I got it for £33 something (yay for student discount!) which I don't think is bad for a Topshop dress, I'll be able to wear this in the day and maybe the evening. It's also a classic item which probably won't go out of fashion :)

I was going to do look book with all the things I might wear with this dress, what colours would work well but I decided against it because otherwise when I next wear it you will have seen it before! I think a turquoise nail varnish would work really well. I think it also needs a belt? Waist belts never fit me so if anybody knows of any shops that make belts small let me know! If not I'm going to have a look in kids places :\

No face shots today because I woke up and have something going on with my eye! It's like half the size of the of other, lol.

  19. I think a lovely thin plaited belt would look lovely in a constrasting colour, i got one from topshop and i have the same problem with belts but they have small medium and large, so i got the small and wear that as a waist belt and tuck any over hang underneath the waist part of the belt :) also you can pick up cheaper ones in primark they are like exactly the same for about £2.00 xx
