Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do.

There have been some dresses over the years that I’ve loved and lost. Some that I wanted, and never had. Some that I had, but have no longer. And some that I had and loved.

There was that Barbara Hulanicki dress, with the gorgeous print, that I shot envious looks at when I spotted Carrie and Lily wearing it (knowing that a dress of that length was never meant to be mine). There was that H&M halterneck daisy dress that I adored when I was 15 (even if I knew what had happened to it, I no longer have the body of a 15 year old). That New Look dress (modelled here by Helen)I never found in my size which was the closest mimic to that daisy dress I ever found (but flattering, and not tiny). That red Primark number that reproduced everything I loved about the Hulanicki dress (at half the price and double the length), even though now it’s falling apart.

And then there was this dress, which somehow gathers together everything I love about those dresses, but NEW, and beautiful. It’s pretty much unheard of for me to buy a dress for full price from somewhere like Topshop, but I couldn’t not. Just… LOOK at it. It’s perfect.

Dress, jewellery, belt - Topshop
Shoes - M&S

The little red strappy shoes are perfect, too, but desperately uncomfortable. The next chance I get, I’m investing in these Miss Sixty ballerina flats. So cute I could die.
