And I want and I need and I love animal..........

I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on the New Look website and totally had to have it. Then it sold out and I was desolate (well not quite but you know). Then one appeared on eBay in a size 20, so it seemed like fate. I think I ended up paying a few quid more than it was originally, but I loved it so that was ok. Then New Look restocked it... Gah. Patience is something I must learn.

Now - this dress is nice. It's a bit thinner than the ASOS Curve Jersey dresses that I love, but the biggest issue for me is the length. It's a bit too ankle flashy for my liking. You can't really see that from these photos, but when I walk it's all midi length on me. Anyway, I still love it so I can live with a bit of ankle flashing.

Yesterday was also a good hair day. This doesn't happen often. Today it is totally not happening. 


Ooooh look, a photo I didn't take myself... Why I am all head cocked, I've no idea!



I originally wore it with a red belt, cos I am all over leopard print and red together, but this belt was annoying the bejesus out of me so I swapped it for black. Why Matt needed to photograph so much wall above me is another question..... 


And back to mirror shots....

  1. This dress looks great on you! I managed to convince my Mum to let me order it last night to put away for my birthday. I'm really hoping it's going to be long enough on me now you've mentioned it's a bit short on you... Though it definitely doesn't look like it is in these photos :)
