This is the only dress in my wardrobe that's in there twice. I wore it the one and only time I ever got fake tanned, and then realised there were weird pale orange blobs all over it (even though I wore it the next day! Surely that is not meant to happen!). Ruined. Thanks to eBay, I found it again. For a fiver. Hurrah. And I never wore fake tan again. Not because of the dress, but because it simply isn't ME. I'm not meant to go that colour!
Anyway, this dress isn't quite as nice as version 1 - version 1 has netting in the skirt so it goes super poofy. I'm planning to see if I can dye it at some point - maybe blue? Blue and black checks would be cool. I already have a blue and black checked dress, but I can have two. That'd be okay.
I wore this on Tuesday for a pleasant day of wandering round London with an old friend - we did the V&A, the Natural History Museum - even a Jack The Ripper walk. Let me tell you, don't do a Jack The Ripper walk when you've parked 15 minutes walk from the station in a deserted road and have to walk back at 11pm with a dying mobile phone battery. It's not a good idea. TERRIFIED.
Dress - H&M
Belt - New Look
Nails - Parlez Vous OPI?
Necklace - Topshop, sort of
Invisible Boots - New Look
Tights - Somewhere. How am I meant to know when no one ever puts labels in tights? It would be USEFUL.
If you've noticed something a little different in the last few pics, you'd be right - I've had my hair cut, but also? It's not red any more (no matter what the last picture in this post looks like - I wish my hair was the colour my camera thought it was, seriously). I had a bit of a mishap with some hairdye - yeah, when Live Colour SAY that Hot Cinnamon is in their Reds collection, they would be LYING. It went DARKEST brown. Luckily, lots of hair-washing has made it go a little redder, but it's still nowhere near as bright as before. I miss being a redhead. :(
Finally, an outtake. I don't know WHY I was doing the pufferfish face, but there it is. I know, I should pull this face in all photographs, right?
