You know that I would love to see you in that dress.



I got today's Friday Frock in Topshop at the beginning of the year in the sale. YAY SALES. I love it - as I love anything polka-dotted - but it has this odd seam right down the front that bugged me.

So I added BUTTONS! I fake being good at customising - I'm really not. The only sewing I can do is buttons, and the only buttons I ever add are red ones. I have three dresses that I've added red buttons to. Basically because red buttons make everything better.





I wore this ensemble to the Hendricks Gin Event last week. Red tights are a little bold for me, but you know what? I LOVE THEM.

Accessorised with my gorgeous new Dorothy Perkins shoeboots, which may get a post all to themselves, because I AM OBSESSED WITH THEM. They make me feel like a pixie!

  1. I am liking Friday frocks very much already! Love what you did with the buttons - I have bought clothes with seam discrepancies before, and not thought to break it up in this way.

    Look forward to the shoeboot blog post - they are awesome!

  5. LOVE THIS! I've never thought of adding buttons to things. Must be more crafty! I wear red tights at least once a week, people generally think I'm mad x

  8. I love the addition of buttons - totally makes the dress! I completely fail at customisation... luckily I have an amazing tailor/drycleaner combo!
