There's no colour and no sound in the black and white town.

A couple of weeks ago, I found a dress in New Look. All by itself, nothing similar to be found, in my size. I tried it on, and it looked great. The only problem was that it was Wednesday... and payday wasn't until Friday. So I did what anyone else would surely do in that situation - I hid it. I found a rail of maxi dresses and buried my perfect dress in the middle of it. On Thursday, the dress was still there, but on Friday, when I returned, flexing my debit card, it had gone.

I'm amazed no one asked if I was okay as I tore around the shop, scouring every rail, with a look on my face somewhere between rage, anguish and desperation. And then I found it. A whole rail of them, in fact. Mission accomplished.

So it was gratifying, then, when I wore this fabulous, perfect dress out, that it wasn't a letdown in the slightest. I felt nice in it. I got complimented. The stars had aligned to create the perfect dress. It even looks just as great with a belt as without. I think it might be my new favourite (sssh... don't tell the other 28).

Dress, bag & tights - New Look
Necklace - Topshop
Shoeboots - Dorothy Perkins
Belt - H&M
Nail Polish - Top Turquoise by Model's Own

I also picked up a new bag in the New Look sale for the bargain price of £7. My work bag is falling to bits, and while it's not perfect, for £7, it'll happily do for now.

I hope everyone has had a lovely Bank Holiday - what did we all think of Kate's dress, hmmmm?
