GONE DOTTY

Photobucket

This dress has been in my wardrobe, waiting around to be worn for far too long, but I was just finding it so difficult to style; weird, as normally Minkpink stuff possesses a fair amount of throw-on-and-go-ability. Hair down looked haggy, pigtails too kooky, plaits too twee. Black tights looked flat, patterned tights too much. I even pondered semi-sheer tights for a moment, until I realised I hadn't quite reached that point in my life.

Finally I decided to wear it out to dinner on Friday - those bell sleeves calling out to be worn - and spent so long faffing that my growling stomach commanded me to put something (anything) on. Polka dot tights and suede boots were the first thing my nutrient-starved mind could think of. It almost worked, until the weather decided to chuck it down on the way home (oh, Manchester) and soak my booties, hair, and faux fur through.

Maybe this one's best saved for summer. Inevitably there will still be rain...

I'm wearing:
Love Label boots
Primark tights
Vintage, Forever 21, ChloBo & Betty Jackson.Black bracelets

Oh, and recently I seemed to have developed an obsession with elephants (HOW COULD I NOT, just look at this little guy below), and I am also being harassed into making a Christmas list. If anyone has any bright ideas for elephant-related Christmas presents then please do let me know... so far I've only managed to come up with the Trunk family.

Yeah.. I think I have finally regressed into childhood and gone completely dotty.

  2. That dress is lovely! And I am also obsessed with elephants, I recently bought an elephant print rug and canvas from Urban Outfitters, it might be worth checking out there! As soon as I see something with an elephant on it I have to buy it.

  7. The dress looks very pretty on you. So annoying that nothing is ever safe from Manchester rain. It just goes in different directions.
    The elephant family is soooo cute!
