You’re a puzzle to me, and you always will be.

I don't get to go to that many press days, or even events any more - life, work, etc - it all gets in the way. But a couple of weeks ago I took an afternoon off, threw caution to the wind and went to not one, but TWO events in one day. I understand this isn't a big deal for many people, but it is for me, because I am slow and lazy and it was very warm.

The first was Debenhams - lovely Debenhams have been very supportive of this little blog over the last couple of years, giving me vouchers to give away and always inviting me to their events, even though I never seem able to go! So I was really excited to see their Autumn/Winter press day. Lots of sequins and sparkle got me excited about party season, even though it's 6 months away!

A dress with dresses printed on it? I MUST HAVE IT.
I am mad for homeware. I need that bed in my life.
Er, hello, dream dress! A sequined skater dress? THANK YOU, HENRY HOLLAND. I am going to snap this up as soon as it comes out.

Next up - after a quick stop at Byron for some epic burger action with my friend Anne - was Clothing At Tesco, who had a 'lock-in' at their F&F pop-up shop in Covent Garden. It was a great chance to have a natter with some other bloggers, look around their latest collection and try on a few things. So much pretty!

Tesco were kind enough to give me a £30 voucher to spend, so I went to the changing room with an armful of clothes and tried on these four lovely dresses:

one | two | three | four

I really liked the polka dot one, but let's face it, I have a lot of polka dots! Although it's sold out now, boo. In the end I bought two other dresses I'd had my eye on, which were perfect for wedding season! I'll show you one of them on Friday, as neither of them are online any more. I am loving Tesco at the moment for dresses, it seems like everything I've bought lately is from there!


  1. ooooo a dress with dresses on fabulous! I love the polka dot dress too, can't wait to see the ones you picked xxx

  2. I love those dresses you tried on, especially the last one! x
    Sirens and Bells

  3. Ohhh I love the debenhams dress with the clothes print you featured! I feel like the weather is telling me it is time for autumn/winter already!

  4. I want it all. The debenhams dress, the sparkly shoes, the frickin bed! Gimme!

    Lookin gorge in the dresses too :) xx

  5. The clothes print dress and those leggings/footless tights look amazing! I think Autumn ranges are always the best.

    Tesco have had brilliant clothing lately. I bought turquoise polka dot shorts there last month which inevitably make me want to sing the children's programme tune "polka dot polka dot polka dot shorts!" everytime I put them on.


Comments make my day. :) I love you.
